Role Play Silly, or "I Didn't Do It . . . But I Wanted To"
On roleplay realms, you're expected to stay within the confines of the world itself. You're not supposed to bring in outside references to, say, TV shows. Doing so can even get you reported.
This is what I wanted to do (but didn't):
[Birdfall] whispers: I would be willing to purchase your silver.
[Borhammer] whispers: He's not for sale! O.o
[Birdfall] whispers: You announced that you had silver ore and were trying to do away with it.
[Borhammer] whispers: No no, I was calling my mount, Silver.
[Birdfall] whispers: Your mount is made of silver? Are you an engineer, sir?
[Borhammer] whispers: No, he's a HORSE.
[Birdfall] whispers: A silver horse. Miraculous!
And so on.
The point is that all statements on a roleplay realm must remain within the continunity of Warcraft or very silly things will happen.
