Being evil in Narfell



  • I tried making evil characters is Narfell for 2 reasons, no one likes you, at least nearly no one, so you don't get much help from PCs.
    Other reason is that being evil is hard enough already not breaking rules and not putting yourself in danger.

    I had an idea for a druid of malar, but before I have another character lost somewhere in the fugue, maybe there are some people who could give me tips when playing evil.
    Like how to survive as evil and how to gain power as evil in Narfell.


  • Narfell DM

    lol yeah Zanetar is low frofile, thats why all the goody goods on the server want his head. . .

    there are a LOT of low profile evil players on the srver, you dont know who they are cause they are low profile. . .

    then there are those who you know are evil but wont go stepping on their feet because of who they know and are friends with or because of their political status. .like when Aspera was a senator 😛



  • :twisted: Yes… Excellent. :twisted:



  • Did someone call the Imperceptor a low-profile evil?

    Well, I suppose it's been a while… Who wants to die?



  • keep an eye out for nickolai, he's my main character



  • a Level 1 Banite! Oh goodie! This just keeps getting better and better…We're coming back, watch out ya'll Bane rises in Narfell again. Mwuhahah :twisted:
    But yeah, I'll look for Nickolia, I don't mind hanging out around Banites of any Level. 😉

    EDIT: Changed it to Nickolia instead of Dimitri. This explains why I sat frustrated IG and in IRC the other night. I knew you were on cause njkt was logged into IRC but I was looking for Dimitri IG, and Nickolia was right under my nose the whole time! >_< Man, im such an idiot.



  • both of my characters Dimitri and Nickolai are evil, shoot a tell to Nickolai if yoiu don't mind hanging around a level 1 banite 😛



  • If there are any evil characters willing to play with a Velsharoonite, just send me a tell IG.

    In public view, Velsharoon is a servant of Mystra and Azuth (though few characters would know or look beyond what he stands for).

    In secret, Velsharoon is allied with Shar and Talos.

    Nick himself isn't actually evil, but he does as his lord wishes, neither does he hide the fact that he is a Velsharoonite, as he doesn't see his goals as evil.



  • @ee0d9b054d:

    Ask Zanetar.

    Who is this…Zan...Et...Are you speak of? :?



  • Julia is looking for a Bane contigent, can anyone give me some information?

    Tell her to ask Rando



  • @bccee3e2b9=Lynslayer:

    Julia is looking for a Bane contigent, can anyone give me some information?

    I believe it's sort of common knowledge that Banite are hanging around Oscura (though I could be wrong) but I doubt anybody is going to shout at you if your PC 'happens' to head down to a certain Temple underground 😉



  • Yeah, he is fairly blatant about it, but that is only because Talos wishes it of him.

    @d3cbe64002:

    Lol yeah, you need to sharpen up into a Zanetar

    I don't want to be a "Zanetar" lol… Though I do wish to get to know him a little better. (Hard to find other evils) But Zanetar seems to keep to himself, and keep his evil on the low. Arthus is different, he has a completely different personality and outlook on life than Zanetar as well. Zanetar is a banite, his low profile evil is probably what has kept him alive for so long. But Arthus, a Talosian, doesn't care if people know hes evil, as he now has much respect for the Stormlord. Arthus was once a great and devoted paladin of Torm. Now, the destructive, corruptive forces that Talos has unleashed on him can be noticed, first hand. Even if he dies permanently, at least he will be remembered forever, in Narfell history.
    (That reminds me! :idea: I will post the complete life story of Arthus soon… From his childhood, all the way up until the corruption that Talos brought down upon him.)

    @d3cbe64002:

    Arthus Goldmoon is comedy laughable evil. Walking into town going Muahahahaha I'm evil? I mean seriously!

    I wouldn't just walk in and say: "I'm Evil" because, to be honest, Arthus doesn't know hes "become" evil, he just assumes he is pleasing his lord Talos, and that everyone who confronts, and/or has a problem with him, is, in turn evil. (His mind has been corrupted into not knowing the difference between good and evil. He thinks what he is doing is right.)

    So basically, he thinks of all others as evil, and has sort of gone over the edge. Arthus is now proud to be a follower of Talos, and yes, he shows it.

    Hint to players: Arthus had better watch his back around El'mael, and Arandor… The Silmarien brothers... They have not taken kindly to the brooding evil that now dwells within his soul. 😉



  • Lol yeah, you need to sharpen up into a Zanetar 😄



  • to be fair though Arthus Goldmoon is comedy laughable evil. Walking into town going Muahahahaha I'm evil? I mean seriously!



  • What can I say?… Its hard being evil :twisted:

    You will all see more of Arthus soon, mostly playing as Ska Maria Pastora at the moment.

    Evil is hard to play, and many chars do not like evil characters... but just think of how Narfell would be with all good guys... (it would be a joke)



  • Ask Zanetar.

    Find other players who want to do the same thing and play together? There's a small Malar contingent already, see if your playing times coincide.

    Otherwise, I'll refer you to what you wrote:

  • Then perhaps add something in to your emote that indicates that it is being done in an un-noticeable way. I too assume that if you emote something there is some indication of such that I would see… eyes looking at my gold pouch wantingly, etc....

    Also, I'm not saying people should metagame, I was just pointing out that EVERYONE does metagame to some degree (you do log out dont you?), and giving people things they have to remember to not know makes it hard on them... character names are a prime example of this... I dont remember every name, I read what it says above your head if I think my char knows your chars name, cause I suck with names. (This isn't directly applicable, just an example of using OOC stuff IG).

    I personally hate having to remember what my char knows and what he doesnt know... if my char doesnt know it, I prefer not to know it, unless either I NEED to know it for deving, or its really interesting and fun to know like a cool story.


  • Narfell DM

    In my opinion…

    The best kind of evil is the subtle kind.

    The kind of evil that characters and players don't expect.



  • I just thought that emoting thoughts would be a fun way of playing an evil character without going around and PKing everyone. I don't want to be an arse and kill a chr that some player has put his heart and soul, and weeks of development, into. And I also don't want to be one of the million other chrs that just nod, grunts, snorts, and whatnots either.

    But I do want to play an evil character that is well rounded and fleshed out. I can see how emoting thoughts have traditionally been used as tip offs for other players and how that isn't considered metagaming. Really, I don't care if others do metagame… that's their business.

    I guess what I was looking for was a way to emote my character's thoughts to other players while keeping them private to other player's characters. That last line confuses even me but if you read it slowly you might get what I'm saying 🙂

    So, I will probably continue doing that, even at my own character's risk, which I now understand and agree is not metagaming. I can see how I have also used emotes to tip off other players as well. Even my evil guy has looked to another character and emoted looks at Player B for a holy symbol of some type, now why would he single that guy out as a cleric? especially since he looks the same as a fighter. It's because I, as a player knows he's a cleric and as a player I know that my character needs that information.

    I still don't get how Wald and Fine are psychic though :?
