MALONDRA

What inspired you or motivated you to create this character?

For me, characters start as a very generalized idea. Malondra was taking a former character from a DnD game, Alma, and trying a different direction. The little wise, but still oblivious was a fun concept. Though the original, before I even started RPing, idea was "young dwarf, stealthy, doesn't know common well, hunter." It really couldn't be put more simply than that. It is how I start all of my characters. Backstories comes later.

Malondra shares the same 'lots in time' quality that Lulu has in Leauge of Legends.

What do you like and dislike about this character?

She is a fun one to play, along with being very unique among my characters. She is very literal, playful, and oblivious at the same time, while being serious. The thing that comes close to being a dislike is that she is hard to get people to take seriously. This is mainly due to her speech patterns and personality. A lot of people have told me that they think she is just a character to be a child, which is far from the case. 



Why do you like roleplaying this character?

One of the biggest reasons I love to roleplay this character is because of how playful she is. She is a curious individual. She can get clingy to people, but its great because people get clingy to her. Some how she has the ability to warm up some of the most stern, most "edgy", and most grumpy characters. And some of the things she says just makes me laugh. 

What game, or games, do you use to roleplay this character?

Well, this is a hard one for me. The name "Malondra" is one that I have used a few times. The first time was on a Minecraft RP server called Aeonis. There she was one of the "Children of Light", a near angelic race of perfect beings. She was a warrior, a protector, with an almost dancer style fighting stance. Rift Mal was the second, Third was the potty mouthed, stuttering, alcoholic mercenary from Aion. So really, it is a name, but the one thing in common was the reddish hair when I could.

 

What has been your best and worst rp experience with this character?

Best? That is too hard. I think probably, was when she found love. Someone who accepted her for her. Someone to be her anchor. The times RPing those were some of my favorites with Malondra.

Worst? There have been a few people that have been...just a bit pervy. They are entertaining, but at the same time when a couple hundred year old elf is hitting on a very young dwarf...yeah...a little bit awkward to rp.

I mean, I could say some of the times that her head has gotten broken. They are actually a bit hard to roleplay, but it is natural. Natural RPs really make even the hardest RPs worth while.

What is Tabletop Audio?

While this site was originally intended as a resource for players and GMs of tabletop role-playing games, I have received so many emails from other types of users that I felt it was time to refine this section.

SPOKANE, Wash. – One local man said Monday he is on a mission to help people with physical disabilities by using one unique method – RPGs, or role playing games.

Hawke Robinson first thought of the idea two years ago. He is offering mobile therapy called “RPG Research” which brings a therapy trailer right to the patient’s doorstep.

Hundreds of players flock to Las Vegas every year for EVE Vegas, which started life as the largest player-run EVE event and is now officially endorsed and run by CCP Games. I’m on the ground at EVE Vegas this weekend to get some insight into the upcoming Ascension expansion, which is due to go live in just over two weeks on November 15th.

Ascension aims to turn EVE Online on its head by opening the doors to subscription-free users for the first time in the game’s 13-year history. To prepare for opening the flood gates on a free-to-play EVE and get all of those new players over the game’s infamous learning cliff, developers have produced a story-based tutorial system and overhauled the character sheet interface. Veterans can look forward to a dramatically improved ship fitting screen, new player-built industrial complexes, huge mining ship buffs, a new EVE mobile app for Android and iOS, and NPC mining ops using advanced AI.

Premium Housing is a new tier of housing, offering luxurious homes for purchase by Mithril Coin. Upkeep will still cost gold, as it does in Classic Housing, however VIPs don’t have to pay Upkeep on their Premium Houses (including Kinship leaders)! Players are also welcome to own multiple Premium Houses at the same time.

Stately House

The Stately House is the basic type of house (it’s still super big!). Notable Gondorian Magistrates and aging lords of reduced means have occupied these respectable abodes. It comes with 124 interior decoration hooks and 18 exterior hooks.

Luxurious House

The Luxurious House is one solid step up from the Stately House. Generals, advisors and handmaidens to the Royal Stewards, traders, and outer branches of good family have all lived in these. It boasts 140 interior decoration hooks and a sprawling yard with 27 exterior hooks.

Deluxe Kinship House – Hills of Belfalas

One type of the Kinship Houses rests atop a hill, overlooking the rest of the neighbourhood and the bay. These have typically housed the wealthiest of merchants and the older, local bloodlines of Belfalas nobility. It has over 180 interior decoration hooks and more than 36 exterior decoration hooks.

Deluxe Kinship House – Kinship Island

And yes, the other type of Kinship Houses is on its own island, accessible by dock. Among the highest families of Gondor have claimed these for their summer retreats. It has 180 interior decoration hooks and 63 exterior decoration hooks.
