Do you say that there is massive RP around Hunger attacking Flame? What kind of RP did this current sect war bring to the table? You should consider your own words to me when we discussed these things and you know that I am fully aware of people emotions towards some players and this has basically 0 to do with sect wars, it is way more personal.
Okay, so the rest of this was stuff I don't care about but this, this is important for me to comment on.
There is SO much roleplay in this war that, very much like the last time, zero percent of anyone has bothered to explore - let me drop it down here for you to peruse, because I know Flame will never bother to explore it ICly (Except for @Pellerin
, he always chats with me ICly about the war. If he asked Anarys to stop, she'd have to sincerely think about what to do, because she thinks he's a swell, if misled, fellow) -
1. War timeline: Hellfire relics for lulz > bad blood between Flame/Hollow causes bad decisions by Galt > Galt defiles > Alvetta calls us bullies > Anarys is informed > Anarys hates Flame from the last war, where she thinks they were tiresome, whiny idiots > Anarys talks to Myrcella, Caitryn and Mereis, whereupon they all learn that... they really, really don't like Flame, or Kinsarmar, for that matter.
If Galt hadn't defiled, there would be no war. If Alvetta had said to Anarys, "Hey, maybe you should take those relics out, they're annoying and dumb", there would be no war. But! Here we are. Choices were made alongside beds and here we are. So, there was roleplay! Lots of it. Ask @Myrcella
2. Personal? For Anarys, -absolutely-. Anarys hates Flame. I legitimately quote:
Hyperionus tilts his head to one side.
Hyperionus asks, "Why continue it, then?"
You have emoted: Her mouth widens, lips parting in a sharp, fierce smile as Anarys glances left, then right. Leaning towards Hyperionus as though to confide a great secret, she murmurs to his ear.
You whisper to Hyperionus, "Because it's fun. Because I enjoy Galt's suffering. Because it pleases me when men beg. Because I detest Flame after the way they behaved last time. Because I hate losing. Because what they have should be mine."
-- Personal for me? Absolutely not, I hate PK and I hate staying up until weird hours even more. But I do love RP and the RP generated by this, if not Flame because they just... don't try for whatever reason, then I enjoy what its generated for Hollow/Unspeakable/Leechwood/Etc. I enjoy the camaraderie, win or lose. I enjoy playing this game and logging in to do -something- other than AFK and chat on OOC ring.
So, please, leave RP out of it: it is this time, like it was last time, Flame's decision to not try to RP over it. Let's be real - I am a HUGE sucker for RP, everyone has known it since Kira. If Flame tried ANYTHING - to talk solutions with Anarys, to talk game with Anarys, to bloody kidnap Anarys and extort Keyrix, -anything-, I would be game. I am always game for RP. But they don't, because RP just isn't a driving solution for them in this, I guess. So, we settle for working with what we have.
