Tyr Interview

# Wednesday, November 07, 2001::20:45:04 :: Now logging session to C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\tyr.txt You nod.. You say [OOC] 'Sure.'. A Tiny Witch's Hut in the Forest. Entering into the spooky hut you see all types of. shrunken heads and cursed magic paraphanelia. The boards. creek with each step you make and the eyes of the heads. seem to follow you. You wonder if the person who owns this. place is anywhere around.... [Exits: south] [Doors: none]. Tyr <-- The wheel is spinning, but the hamster is dead. is here.. [..C.........] A cave bear sits here awating its masters command.. A Chultan fire ant is looking for it's nest here.. Hanai Oluvaeux stands here selling her wares.. A shimmering of divine lights encompasses Tyr, and as he fades you see the empty sockets of his eyes looking through you.. Tyr has transferred you.. Throne Room of Tyr. You stand in a vast chamber of marble, lit with a bright divine. light with no apparent source. Huge statues of the Triad line the. room, each seeming to stare through you with deep steel-blue eyes. A. massive high backed marble throne stands in the center of the room.. [Exits: none] [Doors: south]. Tyr <-- The wheel is spinning, but the hamster is dead. is here.. An Archon Hound stands here next to Tyr.. Tyr cloaks his presence.. You see nothing special about Huge Hound. An Archon Hound is in excellent condition.. Tyr says 'You should be the only one to see me for a bit'. You say [OOC] 'First off, thank you for the interview.'. You bow before him.. Tyr says [OOC] 'been wondering if you would get around to asking, I would have been happy to at anytime, reguardless of the raiding'. You smile happily.. You say [OOC] 'Thank you! I think people are enjoying them.'. Tyr says [OOC] 'I figure if I have to ask anyone for anything, they really didn't think I deserved it'. You say [OOC] 'Bah! Nah...'. You say [OOC] 'The trick with me, is choosing whom, and when.'. You say [OOC] 'Now is an excellent time.'. Tyr says [OOC] 'Figured you would get to it sometime'. You say [OOC] 'First off, lets start IC.'. Tyr nods.. You say 'Can you tell people reading this, who you are?'. Tyr says 'I am God of Justice'. Tyr says 'Not the God of Law'. You raise an eyebrow at the notion.. Tyr says 'There is a difference, Justice is from the heart'. You say 'There's a moral component, yes.'. You smile happily.. You say 'What role do you play here, in WaterDeep?'. You say 'Is there a need for Justice?'. From now on, you will only hear says and emotes.. OOC channel is now OFF.. Clan gossip channel is now OFF.. Tyr says 'And in the case of these realms, Justice is as I see it for my Church, I lay down the moral obligations of my Church'. Tyr says 'And that would be my Role here'. Krogenar nods, listens.. Tyr says 'To provide that role for both my Church, and the realms'. You say 'Would you say that the Realms has enough Justice in it already? Or in need of more?'. You say 'In which direction has the scale moved?'. Krogenar waits.. Tyr says 'All realms are lacking in Justice, no realm can be too Justice oriented'. Krogenar wonders.. Tyr says 'It is Order, and the Order is offset by chaos'. You say 'What is 'Justice' to you?'. Tyr says 'All realms have Chaos, for without it, there would be no Order'. Tyr says 'a vicious circle'. Tyr says 'still answering your previous question here'. Krogenar nods, listens.. You say [OOC] 'Excuse me if I interupt, just ignore me, until you're done.'. You say [OOC] 'Just signal when you're done... it will be edited out.'. Tyr says 'I am resigned to the fact that there can never be enuf justice, it just is not going to happen, it can't happen, but I can fight for as much Justice as possible'. You nod.. Tyr says [OOC] '* - shows I am done with a question'. You say 'Some within the Realms would call you an oppressor...'. You say 'They would say that you would stop a thief..'. You say '... who was only stealing bread.'. You say 'How would you respond to that charge?'. Krogenar leans back in his chair.. Tyr says 'And the victums of that thief would applaud my enforcement of the law, there are Churches out there that provide for those without'. You nod.. You say 'So stealing food... is still not just? What if the prices were unreasonably high?'. You say 'Where is the justice in that?'. Tyr says 'The Justice would be that shop owners that raise prices to rape the poor are also subject to the same Justice, as I would not find thier prices to be Just in the scheme of things'. Tyr says 'Embargos and other means can be taken against them'. You nod.. Tyr says 'but food is a terrible thing to find in shortage, as any conjurer can pick it out of the air'. You say 'But what of the ordinary people?'. You say 'How would you deal with a father who steals food for a hungry family? Surely, you would be lenient?'. Krogenar listens.. Tyr says 'Each case is different, you have to look at why it is brought to me, does the shopkeeper have unusually high prices, is it a delicatesen, is it rare food, OR does the shopkeeper have a beef with the father other then the stealing'. You nod.. Tyr says 'In the case you have outlined, the shopkeeper would be loathe to bring this to me, as what is said, the food should have been freely given'. Tyr says 'I would probably find against him, but it doesn't excuse the stealing ... the Father would still be liable for a part of that'. Tyr says 'of course, his penalty may be to provide some service to the shopkeeper'. You say 'As the God of Justice, what do you see as the greatest threat to Justice in The Realms?'. Tyr says 'The Church of Destruction'. You say 'What is your Church's stance towards The Rok?'. Tyr says 'We have not gotten involved in that it has been decided already as to what clans hold that sword, and they keep them hidden away beyond our reach'. You raise an eyebrow at the notion.. You say 'I don't understand.'. Tyr says [OOC] 'The only storyline provided at this time to rid the realms of the RoK, is the 4 swords of Ragnarok'. You nod.. Tyr says [OOC] '3 clans hold those swords'. You say [OOC] 'So, will you help recover them?'. Tyr says [OOC] 'all before CoJ's time'. You say [OOC] 'By force, if necessary... if they will not use them to stop The Rok?'. Tyr says [OOC] 'They are already recovered, and hid away on Alts out of PK, except one, held by Keldon, who is off in the mountains looking for the Temple of Light'. You say [OOC] 'Are they all in good hands?'. Tyr says [OOC] 'He is NPK, so, cannot be forcibly attacked'. You say [OOC] 'Or held by enemies?'. +---------------------| Waterdeep 'City Of Splendors' |---------------------+. Name: Keldon . Level: 101 . Age: 122 . Race: halfelf . Class: sage .

Tyr says [OOC] 'CoS has two, and ST has one, I believe'. You shake your head.. You say 'Minli of NyTek has two!'. You say 'Will your Church help to recover them?'. Tyr says [OOC] 'interesting, I was not aware anyone was able to wrestle them away'. You say 'But, will your Church help The Realms retake those swords not held by good clans?'. Krogenar listens.. Tyr says 'My Church will assist in the recovery and use of the Swords should the oppurtunity present itself'. You nod.. You say 'When I asked earlier about the greatest threat to Justice... you said the Church of Destruction.'. Tyr nods.. You say 'What about The Church of Strife... surely 'strife' is dangerous to Justice.'. You say 'As are the Thieves, and other evil groups.'. You say 'What of them?'. Tyr says 'Strife is dangerous, but destruction is a higher chaos, Strife is more ordered'. You say 'But you speak of Order... not Justice.'. Tyr says 'Justice can be found in Order, those that follow rules are closer to obeying them'. You nod.. You say [OOC] 'Ok... now some OOC questions.'. You smile happily.. Tyr says [OOC] 'Go for it'. You say [OOC] 'Give us some information on the person behind the keyboard...'. You say [OOC] 'Your name, age, what you do for money, etc.'. Tyr says [OOC] 'My name is John, I am a 30 yr old male, single, not dating ;) atm ...'. You jump in the air and give a BIG high five to Tyr!. You say [OOC] 'Old like me... :)'. Krogenar quiets himself, listens.. Tyr says [OOC] 'I work for Boeing, I recently moved from the JSF contract back over to doing core work (so yes, I still have a job)'. Tyr says [OOC] 'I do lab work, and I travel at times'. Tyr says [OOC] 'I have the option of having an engineering title, but find I enjoy the hands on work more'. You say [OOC] 'How did you get involved with mudding?'. Tyr says [OOC] 'I was playing ADnD in Maryland, and was listening to the others in the group dreading rerolling and heroing, I asked what they were playing, and they gave me the address'. Tyr says [OOC] 'I started that week and haven't quit since'. You say [OOC] 'How long ago was that?'. Tyr says [OOC] 'That was here, I started Nov of the first year'. Tyr says [OOC] 'Hmmm .. Nov of 96 or 97, it has been a long time'. Krogenar nods, listens.. Tyr says [OOC] 'That was back before there were spell casters on every street corner, it took months to level to hero, and hero actually meant something'. You say [OOC] 'How has WD changed in all that time? What is better, what is worse?'. You say [OOC] '*'. Tyr says [OOC] 'Better, the code has been expanded and fixed so much ... people don't want to remember times before banks, arenas, or hero runs'. Krogenar nods.. Tyr says [OOC] 'Worse, the dime a dozen heros, which I lay at the feet of the ease of leveling'. You say [OOC] 'What would you do to improve the ease of leveling?'. You say [OOC] 'Or rather, reduce it.'. You say [OOC] '*'. Tyr says [OOC] 'If it was up to me, I would make spells castable only upon one's self'. You raise an eyebrow at the notion.. Tyr says [OOC] 'That is right out though, been told that many times'. You say [OOC] 'That would upset a lot of people.'. You smile at him.. Tyr says [OOC] 'Failing that, I would make spells castable only on those within 5-10 levels'. Krogenar nods.. You say [OOC] 'What would you put on your wish list, for WD?'. You say [OOC] 'If you could have any coding, what would it be?'. Tyr sits back and begins to think.. Tyr says [OOC] 'Honestly, I have worked on clanraiding for so long, I am a bit out of sync with the Mud'. Tyr says [OOC] 'I can't think of any code I would be interested in for mortals'. You nod.. You say [OOC] 'Ok... tell me what it was like preparing for clanraiding.'. You say [OOC] 'What are the goals of clanraiding... why is it back?'. Tyr says [OOC] 'Hell, pure hell'. Tyr says [OOC] 'There are no goals per se for clan raiding'. Tyr says [OOC] 'It was something that was tried back when I started, ... it was tried again a year later'. Tyr says [OOC] 'Both failed miserably'. Tyr says [OOC] 'I was already in a position watching clanhall items in their shops'. You raise an eyebrow at the notion.. You say [OOC] 'Wait... watching items?'. Tyr says [OOC] 'Shop items, what were legal and illegal'. You nod.. Tyr says [OOC] 'Oh, back to that ... clanraiding, there are always complaints and ideas on bringing it back, or trying to implement it'. Tyr says [OOC] 'It is perhaps (or was) the most requested, or the most frequent idea'. Krogenar nods, listens.. Tyr says [OOC] 'If it wasn't on the idea board it was on the channels'. Tyr says [OOC] 'Too many ppl hiding'. Tyr says [OOC] 'PK stalemated here recently, it looks like Raiding has fixed that also'. You say [OOC] 'Hiding? From Pk, in their clanhalls?'. Tyr nods.. Krogenar waits.. Tyr says [OOC] 'But back the heart of it, I was already watching halls, and finding problems day after day ... so we started back to try and get raiding, in doing so, more control could be exerted over clan builders in the name of raiding'. You nod at Tyr.. Tyr says [OOC] 'More and more control solved some problems, but not all problems, so it has been expanded more and more'. Tyr says [OOC] 'Now, even though it is a ton of responsibility, and some more work for me, I have almost total control of what is in a clanhall'. Krogenar listens.. Tyr says [OOC] 'Changes and such have to be done by me, and if I do them, they are legal (I hope)'. You say [OOC] 'Me too!'. Krogenar grins.. Tyr says [OOC] 'And with the publication of the help files on the clanhalls made availible to all, problems can be reported by 1000s of players, not just a few nosey IMMs'. You nod.. Tyr says [OOC] 'Which makes my job much much easier'. You say [OOC] 'Has that happened yet?'. Tyr says [OOC] 'What happened yet?'. You say [OOC] 'have people reported item abuse in clanhalls'. Tyr says [OOC] 'Not as many as I would have thought ... but some'. Tyr says [OOC] 'But then, I haven't posted a reporting protocal yet either'. You raise an eyebrow at the notion.. Tyr says [OOC] 'Still seeing if clanraiding is here to stay'. You say [OOC] 'Why did the previous attempts fail.. and how did you try to fix them this time around?'. Tyr says [OOC] 'First try it was a joke, there was no preperation, some halls had guards, some didn't ... some weren't connected at all'. Tyr says [OOC] 'The second attempt was prepped a little more, guards and links were semi checked, and alarms were added in during that process'. You nod.. Tyr says [OOC] 'But ... rooms and layout weren't checked, parts of halls weren't accessable to all ... some rooms were accessable by anyone but clanmembers, other halls were completely open'. You wince in agony.. Tyr says [OOC] 'And the final straw were the recall rooms ... meteor swarm in a recall room were a nightmare'. You raise an eyebrow at the notion.. Tyr says [OOC] 'We had ppl getting multikilled 20-30 times in a minute'. You cringe in terror.. Tyr says [OOC] 'It crashed the Mud, and that was the end of the clanraiding that time'. You say [OOC] 'Ok... on to another topic.'. You say [OOC] 'What do you do for fun, besides mudding?'. Tyr says [OOC] 'Very little'. You chuckle politely.. You say [OOC] 'Books, movies?'. You say [OOC] 'Looking forward to any movies?'. Tyr says [OOC] 'I hate going to Theaters, I am just not a crowd person'. Tyr says [OOC] 'I will probably hit the Potter movie, Spiderman, Lord of the Rings, and Star Wars next year ... although, I may wait on Spiderman and LotR untill they are out on video, depends on if my friends drag me out'. You say [OOC] 'Which are you looking forward to most, and why?'. Tyr says [OOC] 'Books, I read avidly, if I am without a book, it is unusual'. Krogenar nods, listens.. Tyr says [OOC] 'Probably the Potter movie, simply to see if my visions of reading it, meet with the authors pictures'. You say [OOC] 'I love books myself. Lovecraft is my favorite.'. You say [OOC] 'What about you? Any favorite books, or authors?'. Tyr says [OOC] 'I have a very good imagination from text, I can't keep episodes and books of Star Trek seperate, I will stand and argue with my friends about an episode, only to figure out an hour later that it was a book, and they had never seen the episode'. You cackle gleefully.. Krogenar nods, laughs.. Tyr says [OOC] 'Authors ... hmmm'. Tyr says [OOC] 'There are so many ... my favorite is ... Zelazny'. You nod.. Tyr says [OOC] 'Followed closely by Stasheff'. You say [OOC] 'Star Wars... right?'. Tyr shakes his head.. Tyr says [OOC] 'No SWs author is on my favorite list'. You ponder the question.. Tyr says [OOC] 'You are thinking of Zahn'. Eureka! You snap your fingers. . You nod.. Tyr says [OOC] 'Salvatore is up there too, he writes the best FR books'. You say [OOC] 'You're right.'. You say [OOC] 'What have they written... Zelazny and Stasheef?'. Tyr says [OOC] 'I have read over 60 of the FR books, and still have over 20 on my shelf as unread'. You raise an eyebrow at the notion.. Tyr says [OOC] 'Zelazny wrote the Amber series ...'. Tyr says [OOC] 'Familiar with it?'. Tyr says [OOC] 'About 13-15 books in that series'. You say [OOC] 'I have heard of it...'. You say [OOC] '... but never read it.'. You say [OOC] 'What is it about? Corwyn of Amber?'. Tyr says [OOC] 'It is a strange twist on the view of planes of existance'. You say [OOC] 'Do I know what I'm talking about? :)'. Tyr nods.. Krogenar nods, listens.. Tyr says 'Amber is the one true world ... all others are reflections of it'. Tyr says [OOC] 'The Nine princes of Amber have the ability to change from plane to plane'. Krogenar nods, fascinated.. Tyr says 'Their infighting and court politics lead to Corwyn loosing his memory and he wakes to find himself in a asylym on earth ... and you follow his adventures back home not knowing what he is doing'. Tyr says 'which is where you pick up in book one'. You beam delightedly at nothing in particular.. You say [OOC] 'I think I may pick that one up!'. You say [OOC] 'Have you ever read any of Lovecraft?'. Tyr says 'Zelazny died about 5-6 yrs ago, his son put together the last two books from his notes'. You nod at Tyr.. Tyr says 'Stasheff wrote the Wizard series, might look at it too'. Tyr says 'but I have two full bookselves of books behind me'. Tyr says 'all of stuff I have read already'. Tyr says [OOC] 'Sorry, distacted'. You nod.. You say [OOC] 'I have to go very soon. :/'. You say [OOC] 'Maybe we'll continue tomorrow.'. Tyr nods.. You say [OOC] 'Have you ever read any of Lovecraft?'. You beam delightedly at nothing in particular.. Tyr says 'not that I remember'. Krogenar looks to the night sky, a vision of fear crossing his face.. You say [OOC] 'He's from the 1930's.'. You say [OOC] 'He was a pioneer of the 'cosmic horror' genre.'. You say [OOC] 'You might like him.'. You say [OOC] 'Also... give Brian Lumley a try.'. Tyr says 'I know the name, and what he wrote, just not any of his books I remember'. You say [OOC] 'Most were small novels.'. Tyr says 'Lovecraft that is'. You nod at Tyr.. You say [OOC] 'Lovecraft... plenty of anthologies on the market.'. You say [OOC] 'He focused mainly on cosmic evil... the nature of the universe, etc.'. Tyr says [OOC] 'I have read some of his short stories, they are in the Comic Fantasy compilations'. You nod.. You say [OOC] 'Also... you might love Lumley's work. Great Fantasy, and derivative of Lovecraft,'. You say [OOC] 'Read about a character he created... called 'Titus Crow''. You beam delightedly at nothing in particular.. You say [OOC] 'He's my all time favorite.'. Tyr says 'I like a little comedy in my fantasy'. You nod.. You say [OOC] 'That's ok... Lumley delivers that too.'. Tyr says 'serious fantasy is hard to read for me, but I do it on and off ... I don't put down a book once I start it'. You say [OOC] 'Anyway... I have a GF that I'm an hour overdue calling...'. You say [OOC] 'But Lumley is lighthearted... has a 'pulp' feel to it.'. You smile happily.. Tyr says 'Although, the Pern series is an exception to that, I have started that series 10 times and never finished a book yet'. You say [OOC] 'Can we continue another time? Starting with books?'. Tyr says 'sure'. You beam delightedly at nothing in particular.. You bow before him.. Tyr smiles happily.. You say 'Thank you again... this was a great interview!'. Tyr says 'Quite welcome'. You say 'How do you think it went?'. You say 'Do you have a question for me?'. Tyr says 'not too badly, hard to get all of the answers in'. You say 'Not too BADLY?!'. Tyr says 'No, not at this time, I will later though'. You cackle gleefully.. You poke him in the ribs.. You nod.. You say 'Ok. Night Tyr. Thanks again for the clanraiding.'. You wave goodbye to Tyr.. Tyr waves happily.. The Isle of Mystra's Dance. As you suddenly appear upon the isle of Mystra's dance you kiss the. sandy earth as you are finally glad to be away from the ocean, that had. flooded your ship. You wonder how you suddenly got here from where you. sank... you had been miles from any land... Well, anyways, you see miles. of palm trees waving the wind and beautiful shells adorning the beach.... though the shell are all in the shape of what seem to be nine stars.... [Exits: east] [Doors: none]. An magical water purifier is here filled with distilled sea water.. A marble altar with granite cat legs imbedded in the sand.. A cave bear appears in the room.. # Wednesday, November 07, 2001::22:05:45 :: Log Closed. # Tuesday, November 27, 2001::18:50:41 :: Now logging session to C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\tyr2.txt You tell Tyr 'Ok... I'm ready!' Tyr has transferred you. Throne Room of Tyr. You stand in a vast chamber of marble, lit with a bright divine light with no apparent source. Huge statues of the Triad line the room, each seeming to stare through you with deep steel-blue eyes.  A massive high backed marble throne stands in the center of the room.. [Exits: none] [Doors: south]. An Archon Hound stands here next to Tyr.. You smile happily.. You raise an eyebrow at the notion.. Tyr has created a marble throne!. Tyr drops a marble throne.. Tyr sits on a marble throne and rests.. From now on, you will only hear says and emotes.. Tyr has created A warm, Red Sofa!. Krogenar eyes the sofa.. Krogenar pokes the sofa with a crutch.. Tyr says 'Have a seat'. You shrug.. You sit down in A warm, Red Sofa.. Krogenar sniffs at the sofa.. You say 'I've done more research on what would be some good questions to ask you.'. You say 'Some may seem quirky, etc. Try not to laugh!'. You smile happily.. You say 'You ready?'. Tyr says 'Yeah, sure, go for it'. You say 'Well .. questions for all people.' You chuckle politely.. You say 'If you could describe yourself, with three adjectives, what would they be?' You smirk. You cackle gleefully.. Tyr says 'ooc or ic?'. You say 'OOC'. Tyr says 'Quiet, methodical, and single'. You nod.. You say 'If you were to leave WD today, right now, never to return... how would you like people to remember you?'. Tyr says 'As the one that acted fairly for the mortals AND the IMM that succeeded (where others had failed) in bringing clanraiding to the Mud.'. You say 'Now that clanraiding is back for a few weeks, how would you say its working?'. Tyr says 'Been working all along, I haven't had any major problems with the mortals ...'. You say 'So, its a success, in your opinion?'. Tyr says 'It is very successful.' Tyr says 'So successful that when I tried to shut it down a week ago, I was not able to'. Krogenar nods, listens. You say 'How do you feel about its success?'. Tyr says 'I had been very happy with the way it was going ... now, it is no longer my concern ... and I will just remain happy that I was able to bring it to the Mud ... but I am no longer a part of it.'. You say 'Let me get back to the first question, about how you would want to be remembered....'. You say 'How do you think people would remember you, ACTUALLY - compared to how you'd like them to remember you?' Krogenar listens.. Tyr says 'I doubt I will be remembered much by the major population of the Mud, I have little interaction with them now, those I punished will remember me with malice ... those I helped may remember me happily ... Krogenar listens.. Tyr says 'but most would reguard me the same as some of the other IMMs that came before me, Lathander, Sune, Mielikki, or Ogma'. You say 'How are those other regarded?'. Tyr says 'They aren't, they are mostly forgotten for what they did for the mud.'. You raise an eyebrow at the notion.. You say 'So, you think you'll be forgotten?' You chuckle politely. You shake your head. You say 'C'mon now...' You smile happily.. Tyr says 'Most likely, I am not that high of an IMM, I don't do anything that makes ppl say "I am going to play WD tonite, I hope I see Tyr on"'. You nod. You say 'Was having 'Tyr' as your avatar name, your first choice?'. Tyr says 'No, actually it was Eros, that is my builders name, and the name I am known by on the building port, but when the chance was offered to me, Eros had already been taken, so I just used a quick name ... '. Tyr says 'I forget what it was, but at the time the position was not a permenant position, so it didn't matter'. Krogenar listens.. Tyr says 'Later in the evening when the event I was helping with was over, I asked if I should delete ... Niss had me stay on as a IMM under evaluation'. Tyr says '1-2 months later, Talos had an idea for a Lawful/Good clan ... but wanted it to be headed by a full time IMM, one that could RP ... '. Tyr says 'I had the position partually becuz of my RP, and other low level IMMs encouraged me as they thought my character's character was about the same as Tyr's ... hence a name change came about'. Krogenar nods, listens.. Tyr says 'mortal character's character ... that is'. You say 'Why did you pick Eros?'. Tyr says 'I have long been associated with The Apostles of Sune, it is the only male god in that pantheon.' You nod.. You say 'Can you tell me the background for The Church of Justice?'. Tyr says 'Background for the Church of Justice ...'. Krogenar nods, listens.. Tyr says 'The Church of Justice is one of the newer Churches in the Realms of Waterdeep ... it formed when I made my way across the great rift to this newer realm ... before my pressence was only in the Forgotten Realms, but with a piece of my essence here ...'. Krogenar listens.. Tyr says 'I expanded my influence over a population that was in need of Justice, I only watched at first, I saw that many that may have followed the path of Good go to Evil clans and churches as they had little choice of influences here.'. Tyr says 'When I made a Church availible as an option, a few joined, then a few more ... we are still struggling as a new Church, but at times we are a force to be delt with.'. Tyr cloaks his presence.. You say 'To someone who might want to join your Church... what would you say? Any advice?'. Tyr says 'It is a hard road to follow, the restrictions I put on my followers are not easy to follow, and those weak in character are not going to last.'. You say [OOC] 'OOC now, what would you say your clan's strong and weak points are? And why?'. Tyr says 'Strong - RP, we have held a strict RP on who we attack, who we align with, who we group with ... '. Tyr says 'and for the most part it has been followed by all my followers ... this is more then most of the Good clans have been able to do in the past, but has led to better RP with all the Good clans here.'. You nod.. Tyr says 'Weak - membership, due to the amount of trust I would have to give to Leaders in my church, I have retained many of duties of membership, while I was busy with clanraiding, I didn't devote much time in adding more members.'. Tyr says 'in doing so, membership in the Church has declined, and not many have been asking to join since.'. You say 'How do you plan on changing that?'. Tyr says 'With clanraiding done, I will be over here more often again, so eventually membership will pick up'. You say 'Would you have any advice for potential leaders of CoJ?'. Tyr says 'Roleplay well, and be around so I can see it, and never ask for the position.'. You say 'Why shouldn't they ask for the position?'. Tyr says 'My personal feeling is that I watch closely enuf that I can make the desicion ... if one is asking to have the position, they don't feel that I can see it in them, and in doing so, saying that they don't deserve it in thier own eyes.'. You say 'What makes The Church of Justice stand out? What makes it unique?'. Tyr sits back and begins to think.. Tyr says 'I will have to stay with the fact we have a strong RP and follow it closely.'. You nod.. You say 'What is it about RP that you enjoy? What's your favorite kind of RP?'. Tyr chuckles politely. You say 'Take your time!' You smile happily.. Tyr says 'I guess I can't answer that one real well ... I really don't RP Tyr ... I just happened into a position where I can play myself, I enjoy it quite a bit as I don't have to RP Tyr as it is just natural.'. Tyr says 'As for what I enjoy RPing ... the lone adventurer, relying on himself, but only putting his own life on the line ... all for a cause that may save a realm'. You say 'Why does that loner archetype appeal to you?'. Tyr says 'Becuz RPing with others here has quite a bit of restrictions ... it is hard enuf getting answers from the RP IMP ... when you start adding ppl to it, getting in contact with them is very hard, and then one leaves out of no where ... '. Tyr says 'leaving one hanging'. You chuckle politely.. You jump in the air and give a BIG high five to Tyr!. You say 'RPing in a large group can be daunting.'. You say 'Do you have any humorous, or interesting stories to share?'. Tyr says 'nope'. You nod.. You say 'Can you name 5 things that people probably don't know about you?' You say 'Do you play water polo? Etc...'. Tyr sits back and begins to think.. Tyr says '1) I own a cat.'. You nod.. You say 'Name?'. Tyr says 'Ralph'. You say 'Number2?'. Tyr says ''Thinking' Tyr says 'I have said alot on OOC'. You nod.. Tyr says 'so I am having to think about what I haven't said'. You say [OOC] 'Which is good!' You say [OOC] 'Any tattoos?'. You raise an eyebrow at the notion.. Tyr says 'nope'. Tyr says '2) I enjoy country music'. You wince in agony.. You say 'Garth fan?'. Tyr says 'used to be, not lately, more into the female singers ... Reba, Trisha Yearwood, Shania ...'. Krogenar nods enthusiastically.. You say 'I hear ya.'. You say 'I like Shania Twain too. Her music's not bad either.'. You smile happily.. Krogenar rubs his hands together.. You say 'Number Trey?'. Tyr says 'tough questions'. Grrrrrrrrrr....take that, Tyr!!!. You say 'Tough questions! Grrrrr...'. You say 'Too much for ya? Can't handle it?!'. You smile at him.. You say 'We'll stop at three.'. Tyr says 'just hard to come up with an answer for that on the spot like this'. You comfort him.. You say 'Its easier on my end, asking the questions, I admit.'. You say 'If you want, ask me a question.'. Krogenar lounges back on the couch, ready for ANY QUESTION.. Tyr says 'nah, I will get through this, just a matter of thinking it through'. You say 'I have an opinion on every topic. And if I don't.. you'll see one magically created before your very eyes.'. Krogenar grins.. Krogenar listens.. You say 'I admit, it does sort of put people on the spot.'. You say 'Can you do the macarena?'. You say 'I can't.'. You frown disapprovingly.. Tyr says '3) Favorite movie ... Monty Python's search for the Holy Grail'. Tyr says 'nope, can't dance'. You point at Tyr.. You hop around like a little kid.. You say 'African or European?'. You smile happily.. You say 'What's your favorite quote from that movie?'. You say 'The only part of the macarena I can do, is that part at the end, when you lift your hands up, and say.. "Heeeeeey Macarena!"'. You say 'That I can do.'. You smile happily.. Tyr says 'Bring us a .... Shrubery'. You cackle gleefully.. You say 'So.... how did this interview go, do you think? Not too badly?'. You smile at him.. Tyr says 'not too badly :)'. You say 'Anything you want to add?'. You say 'No?'. You bow before him.. Tyr says 'Nah, I really can't think of anything else'. You say 'Then thank you very much for your time.' You dazzle Tyr with your smile.. Tyr says 'and with this lag every few minutes, I can't see how you were able to do as well as you have'. You say 'Thanks again.' You shrug.. Tyr nods.. You say 'We did ok!'. Tyr says 'No problem ... recall whenever'. You wave goodbye to Tyr.. # Tuesday, November 27, 2001::20:29:46 :: Log Closed.
