I have ample ideas. No shortage of those. Mostly character interactions with each other and reactions based on questline story events. I'm missing all the other pertinent things that turns all these thoughts and ideas into actual stories.
I can't find my mojo. I haven't attended rp events lately because of it. It feels superficial to just go and sit. Ultimately I'd be pretending like I'm engaged when really I'm lost. Often I can't drag out what anything that's going on has to do with [my character]. I'm oblivious to any sort of story that might be unfolding because it either went over my head or I somehow missed out on getting involved in the beginning. I try to suss out a legitimate reason why [character] would be there ICly, but when I run through what they might be thinking or feeling I inevitably circle back some form of that character having other things to do. This then leaves me thinking about what I'm going to be doing in-game when I'm done -or- what tasks I could be doing instead.
Maybe my characters ICly are just reflecting how I'm feeling OOC. That's an interesting perspective.
Lately all of my alts have been ICly busy at their various duties participating in the fight against the Burning Legion. This usually means they're either fighting on the front or supporting in the back. Most of them were reactivated at the time of the Broken Shore invasion. Some even survived it. So most of them are a part of the Alliance Army in some fashion. They're all too busy to really do anything.
Also, OOCly, I really don't want to log any of them yet. At least not until I'm ready to level them in a way that allows me to focus on each of their unique class hall/artifact stories, individually. Which leaves me with Cail and Vesthi as my two currently active characters.
has been (ICly) more actively participating in this struggle than in any other since the Scourge War (Third War). He's dealt with most (if not all) of his personal baggage so he's incredibly focused on the present, enabling him to advance quickly as a priest. Yet he's that different kind of priest. He's more scholar than holyman. More "fixer" than "clergy". In part this is why he identifies as a Shadow Priest, though he's not -just- a Shadow Priest. He's actually capable of fully embracing his Holy (and Disc) aspects, and does frequently.
is all business. She's the epitome of a Demon Hunter. If she's not actively hunting or killing demons (or more broadly "evil") then she feels she has no purpose. Hunting and/or killing demons -is- her -only- purpose. There are lots of thoughts and ideas on how to pull stories out of her character, but when it comes to RP... ehh, everything else is a stretch.
So that's where I'm at currently. I've passed off my blank slate as "Eh, I'm just hyper focused on the expansion content right now" and that may be true in part. I feel like I'm far enough into Legion now that I should be able to start participating in RP again, or in the least start posting really short tales to get creativity flowing again.
This was me for a few weeks but mostly because I was consumed with cosplay stuff but even now I am having a hard time getting in to Legion. But I think that maybe if we come up with some adventure type things then that might help.
We do still have the tablet storyline floating around there that does need some closure.
In short. I totally feel you right now.

I'm just looking for the ability to log in as another character for posting purposes. I just now realized that I can probably accomplish that through shivtr. I'll have to dig around and see what I can find.
