    Landroval RP colony

    Over on Landroval, there is a movement to pick a server for an unofficial RP server "colony". Basically, we'd like to take the community that formed on Landroval and make a seed on another server. This server would become a sister-server to Landroval as far as planning events and RP. I wonder how Crickhollow feels about this?

    Re: Landroval RP colony

    Due to the name this server is going to be the "Unofficial Hobbit Server". Looks like a lot of people already plan playing Hobbits here.

    From what I see on Landroval the majority of player run events/rp nights happen in the shire so this server is already shaping up to be a "Landroval Colony" as you put it.

    Whether this ends up as a sister-server or not it is still going to be full of RP'ing Hobbits.

    Not sure if that answers your question or not

    Re: Landroval RP colony

    Hallo Harp! I think I will roll a Hobbit here and see what goes. I am seeing a lot of arguements over "this Unofficial and that Official" regarding the 4 new servers. And As I am not that eloquent, I will just see what happens.

    Oh! And I think a Hobbit heavy server is more than ripe for rping with The Elf server name coming in second.

    I'd say that there is a lot more hobbit RP than Elf RP in general. Its just so much easier to crawl into the skin of a slightly tubby, food-loving hobbit. Maybe just a bit too close to home for some of us? Elves on the other hand are a bit daunting to RP--there's the whole been here a thousand years thing. Its very offputting if you are not a lore junkie. A hobbit can plead ignorance on a good number of lore-issues, where an elf is expected to be an authority on a great number of subjects. Anyhow, I shouldn't derail my own thread.

    I hope to roll a Merrydew on each of the new servers just to see which one fits best.

    You have posted the same thread on three of the new servers, do you want all the new servers for RP?

    Re: Landroval RP colony

    No thank you. I stay away from Landy as I don't like RPing and the strict RPing rules in games. (my experiance is when I fisrt came to game I didn't know what RP tag was and rolled a char on EN RP Laurien)

    Within a month I rerolled onto Snowbourn

    I want to start fresh with a hobbit warden and this server is best sounding to me.
    Imlandis sounds all RPy to me, Riddermark makes me think of riddles which I hate and otherone sounds too gloomy.

    This server might even become my new home but if it becomes an RP server then I'll have to keep all my chars on Windy :/

    Re: Landroval RP colony

    What RP rules? I don't think anyone has ever enforced any RP rules on me here on Landy.

    Are there groups that like to RP quests? oh yes and sometimes they are fun and sometimes they are frustrating and sometimes they can go too far for me but on the whole no one has ever shoved a rule down my throat to do things their way and have never once come against me for not being as deep into their story as they are.

    I have had nothing but acceptance of my characters and style of RP from those on Landroval.

    Other servers... yeah, we won't go there.

    I heartily agree. As a non-RPer (?) I feel quite welcome on Landy. It's a wonderful server that is full of fun and fellowship. And, while I don't participate in the roleplaying it can be fun to observe. It's nice to see everyone enjoying the game in their own way. In fact, I'd rather see roleplaying than have people spamming "x" kisses "y" 20 times.

    Re: Landroval RP colony

    Yeah, I'm not sure what rules there are. I've never seen any! I'm a non-RPer but don't begrudge those who do RP. Playing on Landroval has been a fun experience and I've never felt left out or disliked because I don't RP.

    I do, however, resent the imperial implications. Once the server is live, I think a dedicated few of us will fight to the death to defend Crickhollow! Good luck finishing Book 1 and saving Fatty Bolger, imperialist pigs!

    Think of it more like a nudist colony than a Colonial colony. Just a place where people act out their own strange behavior within a larger community. No country ever got conquered by a guy with no pants.

    Re: Landroval RP colony

    Not sure how harsh name police are over ehre but on EN RP Laurine you got your name changed far too easy. REasons - there not names (like oatcake would be changed etc as phrases, meanins, foodstufff etc not allowed)

    Also you have to talk in character in the chat channels including GloablLFF etc - only channel it dosen't apply to is OOC.

    No such rule. I was questing with ******** (the devil chicken) just a couple of days ago. I've also quested with <weird name>, <obnoxious name>, and many other lore-questionable names. The only names that get changed are the ones that are offensive or copyright infringing. That's the same rule anywhere on Turbine's servers. Also, there are no channels where you must talk in character, though there are some where this is the common meme.

    In LOTRO-EU, there are actually assigned RP servers, not so on the NA side. All servers here follow the same, basic ruleset. RP flourishes on servers like Landroval because the community decided it would, and made it happen. Naming violations are no different there than on any other server.

    I'm in.

    ..and after reading the above rather glad I don't have to play on EU servers. There's rule enforcement and then there's just overboard, yikes.

    All the bickering wearies me. Harp, when will any decisions be made? How will us players make that final choice? What is the next step?
