    Just a general question, but how many of you are going to play with Community Ideas in RP. Like Player run Stores, Coalitions of Gathering/Crafting, Wandering Minstrals, Story tellers/collectors?

    I'm personally all for and encourage Player created Content like this, so what kind of idea's have you seen in the community that you're excited for/plan to take part in yourself?

    I am looking forward to seeing how the player run stores and Wandering Minstrels will work.

    I hope Bards can actually sing and such, that would be a nice touch and make minstrels easier to accomplish. Or if they included in game instruments that played music lol, could be fun.

    Well, while the anvil is still severely lacking members, I hope to attract many crafters and emrchants who plan to RP their crafting professions more then their acctual combat class.

    Including events like monthly markets, maybe delivery convoys that need protecting, such stuff... You can bet that we'll be there.

    Convoys, that's a new idea I didn't think about. I like it!
    Maybe Markets out in the fields by popular leveling spot with stuff players want but can't get from NPC characters...or more affordable since it's crafted from gathered goods?

    Stuff like this, yes.. The idea is that the anvil delivers quality, crafted stuff, affordable and available for everyone, made from roleplayers who acctually enjoy being a crafter. Win-Win for everyone.

    Well I hope you all the success! I'm more into Combat than Crafting, I'm a dabbler, so if I see your guy's and gal's around while playing I'll be sure to be a patron.

    Hopefully just like real life, where if given enough coin, they shut up. :p

    I adore player created and driven content--crafting fairs, story telling--in SWTOR when a group of us wacky role players had far, far out leveled a dungeon and decided to take lower players through, we'd take the premise of the dungeon and make it fit into a story line instead. (Because we were so out leveled, the lower player was never in danger. So between battles we could progress a story line such as rescuing a kidnapped official or hunting down an artifact etc and so on.)

    I loved it when players would also take over great NPC areas such as taverns, inns and pretty locations and made it a weekly or monthly RP gathering too.

    In short: I so hope there will be player created content and will try and show up to them with bells on.

    We've had Storytelling events in 1.0, and we're planning on continuing them again in ARR. Right now, we've got plans in the works for a Benefit, Barbeque, and Bazaar; and a ball...we'll be having Hide and Seek events, scavenger hunts....

    Balmung is full of events! I love it there~

    I've never been great at making large stories, but for me, roleplaying ends up being me developing my character's personality and playing IC. Chatting IC, etc. Then story arcs tend to form around me.

    Aside from my character's secret thief-life for excitement, I actually kinda hope to explore her public job more: Being a Professor at the Arcanist's Guild and teaching newer Scholars fairy binding theories, or theories of multi-art healing and stuff. /nerd

    My guy will be traveling alone a lot to ruins and other points of interest/landmarks, so selling stuff in the streets or crafting stuff is not in his meager arsenal of talents. But if he sees anything interesting it's not like he would ignore such characters and players.

    The RPC actually has a thread dedicated to mentoring and finding people to help you out with RPing. If you're interested in RPing, check out the RPC and the mentor thread in particular!

    Also, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
