Aww... X3 *blushes* The map loads, I can see the buildings and at times I even get to see the race choosing before I get the disconnected message. I suspect like Viking, my PC is crap (i'm not denying it isn't I'm sure it is lol) and maybe because the map is too big. Van said he'll try and do something about it so until then I can't really join with out disconnecting immediately so yeah. *sigh* Would be a rare sight for a dwarf to be allowed to live in the elven forest but... honestly? Just because most (if not all) dwarves distrust elves because of their magic (it's explained in their race overview) doesn't mean that there can't be exceptions where a dwarf might wish to live in a forest instead of underground (a bit of an odd ball but eh, maybe he just likes forests and working with wood then stone, up to the player to explain his reasons ICly:p ). Maybe the said dwarf got banished by his clan and has nowhere else to go? Who knows? Honestly I'd more likely see them working for humans since they have more similar things in common but as I said... exceptions due exist if they are RPed out and have logical IC explanations behind them. Like banished from his clan, the humans didn't want him either so he turned to the elves since orcs or goblins would attempt to make a slave out of him. He choose the elves since they we're his last option and he'd be probably killed if he remained alone so it makes sense. Maybe the elves are still distrustful of him and think he is a spy, maybe it will take some time until he has proven himself... all that can lead to some interesting RP. Of course it also depends on the elves... some might agree, others might not. If they do agree I'd expect the elves to try and 'educate' the dwarf in their ways so he doesn't start going around and cutting trees needlessly or maybe ask to prove himself. The possibilities for RP are endless if the reasons behind your actions make sense from a IC standpoint. Might consider such a faction in the future. Will have to see. I actually wish to see some conflict between the current races but that which makes sense as I posted earlier. Waaaay ahead of ya... already suggested that in the race overview. ^^ Now if only it would get posted soon so people can read them.
