I role-play... internally. I have one of each combat specialization, so I like to imagine them with their own personality traits, backgrounds, color palette, mount styles, outfit choices and more. I've always wanted to have one of my characters be a mercenary for hire. Players could hire him to assist with elders, bounty runs, quest sessions and more. I figured that would create some backlash with the community though, as it is frowned upon to pay for services such as these. Still, the concept wasn't really for the money but for the role-play aspect of being a mercenary for hire.
Maybe have a merchants Guild or a 'Guild of Guides' type Guild that assists new players or trains them with the fundamentals of V&H knowledge. Perhaps be a project builder - I was part of a building team when I played on US1, and we would rotate for village to village as mayors would contact us for our services. It was a lot of fun - there's plenty of opportunity for role-play in V&H.
Bah...I once knew of a so-called "mercenary" who helped those in need. The dirty scoundrel's payment was watching my death in the green pools of the Blighted Bastille as his laughter echoed the halls.
Now that I am no longer wobbly from that fateful day, my bow is ready to launch my arrow between his eyes should I ever see that wretched soul...either that or a Stinky Egg will be in his future.
Nice to see the interest is there. I was hoping maybe we should start with an ingame location serving as an RP spot where roleplayers can gather randomly for RP maybe weekly RP events can also be done. Is there a Tavern or some place similar?
I am new to the game and havent visited all of the locations yet. Just marigold harbor and Ardent..I think Castle and Bar at traders path look like a good place for RP. I think we should do some sort of RP event weekly to get people from involved in it.
