Hello The Internet, I’m Khatos! I come as an emissary on behalf of my group of RP’ing friends. Some of us are Kickstarter backers and all of us are salivating in anticipation for this game to launch. I am super excited to see an RP community forming (thank you to Halgrave and Maevynn who I think are the ones who set this up).

To me, Ashes of Creation looks like my dream game. The only thing I love more than RP is a strong game economy where I can farm, craft, trade, and horde riches to my heart’s content. My MMO RP resume includes:

Final Fantasy 14
City of Heroes/Villains
WoW
Archage
Age of Conan (also called AoC, which was suuuuuper confusing at first)
Star Wars the Old Republic

While I am excited for the game mechanics of building cities from scratch and establishing trade lanes and such, I am also very excited for the RP opportunities in Ashes of Creation. A virgin world ready for exploration and colonization sounds very fun and novel. Like Mad Max, but instead of cars we have dragons, and instead of Master Blasters we have elves!

This might be a bit grandiose, but I have a vision for founding or contributing to an RP city that can grow into a metropolis. Each server is limited to 5 metropolii, and I’d like at least one to be firmly in the hands of RPers. We can turn it into a true city-state with a government, military, business council, etc. It’ll be a large undertaking, but if enough of us band together I’m sure we can do it.

Anywho, that’s my rant. Nice to join all of you!

Welcome!! Glad to have you here with us, and you’re definitely right—there’s tons of potential with what we know of the game so far!

We’ll definitely have to see where the cards fall, but a metropolis full of RPers sounds really great and it’s something I’ve hoped for as well. I’ve had dreams of snagging one of those big mansions at an early stage in the node, but it really will depend on so many factors if that’ll actually be possible or not!

It’s also been really interesting to see what other games people come from and what experiences they bring to the table. We seem like a pretty diverse group in that regard and it’s really encouraging to see!

Greetings and welcome. I look forward to sharing an ale with you (and the rest of us) at the local Tavern / Inn. You can find me usually near the hearth with my mug of ale on the table and my ornamental decorated sword not too far away.
There is no salvation without destruction, no hope this side of death.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! And thanks for the invite Dark, but my character is gluten free, so...

Jk, lol. I have no character concepts yet. I can't wait for alpha to start next month so I can begin poking around and seeing what Verra is all about.

I couldn't agree with this statement more. Though I'm new to RP, I love deeply farming, crafting, trading and of course all the riches!! Welcome to you and your group of RP'rs.
Today is a gift, that is why it's called the present.

Over on the main ashes forums I mentioned that my first foray into MMO RP was in Everquest 2. The character was Mishando Kuranama, and on Lucan D'lere server, I was a market baron. My RPs very much included casual strolls through game zones imagining that Mish was accompanying one of his shipments that was making its way secretly to the city of the opposing faction, so yeah. Getting to ride along with an actual caravan? It's a dream.
