Hail and well met high Charisma Half Elf, while i have no doubt you are quite charming. You stand no chance at courting women when competing against < Dark Men of Odus > .

besides, how are you being smooth with the ladies while they are currently engaged?

You do not meet the requirements to join our fraternal order, but we may be interested in working together in some form of alliance.

Exactly! The harassment/harassment campaigns know no end in game, on these forums/others, discord etc. I want zero attachment to any of it.

I am sincerely hoping for a fresh start here and willing to mend fences with Palemoonpal. I appreciate his immersion and knowledge of EQ greatly.

((So stepping ooc for a moment, as I tend to RP in-game more. Here's some background.

Technical limitations on storage, data transmission rates, and graphics power in 1999 meant that the traditional "technicolor human" we've grown to love, where you can pick your skin color, eye color, hair color, hair style, etc. - sometimes constrained to "realistic" colors, sometimes full RGB... is unavailable in EverQuest.

With the Luclin models, this changed a bit. Faces were still constrained to the ones available, but hair color, hair style, facial hair, woad (Barbarians), and eye color were customizable. I believe eye color is full RGB.) But at launch, such customization was not present.

The devs made a decision that to make a race (because it had to be a separate race) that look a lot like a race out of game. I don't know why - I honestly don't. I have never asked nor ever inquired. It's possible this was an attempt at representation - something that people still wish for. Some people like to see a character that looks like them in a game - it can help with immersion. Other folks don't care. There's a lot of really ham-fisted attempts to bring representation into game universes. If we take the technical limitations into account, this is probably the best that could be done. By mondern standards it's a little primitive but not so hammy it's going to end up on a Denny's menu as the special.

Norrath is full of what I like to call "fantastic racism" - if you want to see an example, go try to buy from a vendor in a city where you're not all that liked. The vendor usually calls out why they don't like you - "I have something Iksar can use, it's called the EXIT, get lost!" (race), "I don't sell to Shadowknights like you!" (class), "Your beliefs are in insult to Norrath!" (religion), and other messages (changed faction in some way).

There are non-trivial number of people on p99 that cannot separate fantasy from reality. They don't understand that we're roleplaying a race with the highest intelligence in the game (and the superiority complex that results from it).

These people think it's some ruse, that we're attempting to cast aspersions on people of African descent. They react by bringing out of game concepts into the game. You want to know where the racism is with our guild? It's in others' reactions to it.

We have a list on discord of pretty much every instance of this. There's quite a bit. Every time I see a new example, I am dismayed.))

A moment of silence for this hapless human, unwise in his decision to brave the forests of Odus. His body stank of skunk spray upon discovery and his limbs were gnawed upon by infected rats.

Benanov, have you considered that people think your guild is a racist parody because your leader spends most of his time on this forum calling anyone who disagrees with him cucks, soyboys, and virtue signalers?

I'm not sure I like his use of the first two, but the third one is absolutely spot on.

The people losing their cool the most are the ones that can't differentiate between fantasy and reality.
