Hail, fair citizen!

September 6, 2008

My wife and I just got back from a day at the Michigan Renaissance Festival.  Lots of fun, turkey drumsticks, girls with abnormal amounts of corsets and cleavage (which is not, as you may assume, a beautiful thing), guys with knickers, and dogs with funny hats.  And a troll on a bridge.

As we’re wandering around, a thought pops into my mind: “So this is what a role-playing server looks like!”

  1. Where do you live? Michigan or another state?


  2. Ha ha, so not true on the RP server. Usually they’re pretty much the same as others without people saying ‘lol’ and being called a mixture of consonants.

    There was a bit of ‘theeing’ and ‘thouing’ on the DAoC RP servers (being Camelot I imagine had an impact), but I didn’t see that so much on WoW or LotRO (though I do avoid the Prancing Pony).

    I went to a Ren Faire once while I lived in the US… it was, strange.


  3. Good to see you back, and good to see you in the Scenario this afternoon. 🙂


  4. ROFL!

    RP servers aren’t so bad. I’ve played on my fair share of them, and I have yet to see any of them live up to the “Olde English” reputation. Although I have seen quite a few RP elitists and the dillweeds that roll RP just to stir up trouble… but that’s comic relief. 😉


  5. I view Ren Faires the same way I view pretty much anyone in Boston and a third of the people I’ve met in California.

    You can go “zomg I’m Irish” all you want, but no one is buying it.
    Especially not when some Mexican guy tried to insist that he too is Irish. Just no.
