Honestly, I don't care about bonuses, etc. And I'll support just about anything that promotes good RP. I just have a problem with it, well, for a few reasons.

The Server Rules covers strange body parts, obviously. So it looks pretty odd, both to new and old players, when that rule is arbitrarily bent without any kind of explanation to the general population.

And it does have to do with this thread, at least in that this thread states that races such as vampires, werewolves, etc. are not allowed. But who cares, move/delete this post if you want.

This is not an attack, I have no beef with the people involved. I just think it's BS that one character is allowed to RP something other than a human race, even temporarily, when doing so is expressly forbidden to everyone else.

Fair enough.

The rule hasn't been bent, I'm afraid. That rule is in place because of
people who make characters with wings/horns without DM approval. Just
like you could be a Player NPC that has a name taken from the books,
as long as you have DM approval.

Alexis, with a tail, is not any other race but human.

Well excuse me, it just seems like it.

She's still human.

You could do so if you wanted, as long as you had DM approval.
You could send me an application right now about why a character you
wanted to make had horns. If it was approved, it'd be allowed.

Btw, a quote taken directly from the rules sign governing horns/wings etc:

Naming and Character Policy wrote:
Finally, understand that there are always exceptions--particularly for established players. Some players are even earning the right to create their own Non-Player Characters for use within the World of Harry Potter. We ask that you begin with us on a reasonable scale, and don't be too surprised when you encounter the unexpected.

lol... no. I was pointing out that players can (and have, I believe) played
named characters from the books, which is normally against the rules.

Uh huh..

One question, though. When JB said people who were abusing the status of werewolf... Which group of werewolves was he talking about? There were werewolves played at two different periods in time on the server that I remember. I'm curious to as which group he was referring to, or if he was referring to both.

Mm. Not exactly sure. I have a feeling things went well at first, but things
deteriorated into hostility and fell apart shortly after.

*Shrugs.* Maybe JB'll see this and respond, because I remain ignorant.

I should hope thing went well in the first group, I was in It (Not that I wanted to be at first). I didn't think we behaved too badly, which is why I was curious. >->;

It's still there.. I'm getting annoyed at it.. That post was made in SEPTEMBER. "Last too long" usually is less than 2½ months..

:last too long," entirely depends on perspective.

From one that is eternal a while may be a few life-times. From someone that is old a whle could be a few years. For some youngins a while may be a few minutes.

the tail is part of her story. ( a good one at that) If it bugs you then take it upon yourself to rp with her and try to get the history of the tail(although you will have to dig through the magically induced lies and assumptions) although because of the story I don't know how successful you will be. Thats one nice curse!

*Nik's PR representative steps in quickly*

What Nik means to say is that while he would love to please everyone, it is impossible for him to be continually addressing everyone's timely issues, including those concerns with which you are annoyed at the present time. He feels deeply for you in your hour of desperation and blinding frustration, and his heart goes out to you and the families of all the victims of these terrible circumstances. The authorities are doing everything they can to ensure a speedy and complete recovery. Now kindly go [censored] yourself and have a great day!

:)

[ Gee, it censored "enjoy." ] ;)
