So hey! I've known about AA since it was still a purely Korean game and then tried it out while it was still a beta for EN territories then quickly forgot about it...

UNTIL A FRIEND OF MINE GOT ME TO TRY OUT AAU. wooooh yeaaaaah.

Still waiting for Wynn to open up while I'm busy getting my butt handed to me by trash mobs over at Kaylin so I can dunk my face into the rp scene here. Right now I've only got a loose concept for my interim character, just so I have something to do and ponder on while I wait and wait.

Figured I could ask some questions:
---Is there a central hub where I can snag RP if I stand around long enough? If so, where is it?
---Is there something like a quick reference sheet I can peek it at for common knowledge lore/culture stuff to help with character backstory creation?
---As an extension to the question above, which of Aranzeb's memories are easily accessible to the majority of Elves? Like even just the level range would do.
---Are there other servers the community's planned to use as a secondary RP hotspot or do I just wait it out for Wynn to open up (and LET ME IN)?
---Would it be prudent to have a character on each side or is there a faction almost everyone's agreed to be on?
---Naming conventions, is there a quick cheat sheet for that too?

Hiya! Welcome. :D I can answer a few of those questions.

Is there a central hub where I can snag RP if I stand around long enough? If so, where is it?

Not really, unfortunately. We're a pretty niche community, so seeing RP in the wild is somewhat rare. Most people set up player housing villages for RP, or arrange to meet in public in some of the game's big cities. Your best bet as far as finding RP, is to join a guild and/or set it up, or join us on Discord if you haven't already had the chance!


Is there something like a quick reference sheet I can peek it at for common knowledge lore/culture stuff to help with character backstory creation?

Wellll... it's not little, but a lot of people point to this post. I haven't updated it in YEARS though, but it seems to still hold up.


As an extension to the question above, which of Aranzeb's memories are easily accessible to the majority of Elves? Like even just the level range would do.

None, really, other than hearsay. Aranzeb was a hero, rather than a god. The single player storyline has every player sort of being a very special bean who has some loose connection to the gods and heroes. What Elves know about Aranzeb is that he was the epitome of what one should strive to be, and their ancient king (albeit a reluctant one). Elves would probably know the general history of Aranzeb -- An Elf born in Enoa, ascended to Archmage status, then turned into a hermit after the death of his daughter. After his wife died, he then went to Delphinad, where he became an instructor at Alexander's school. (Alexander was his mentor as a child too.) After a wee touch of fate, he became a member of what would later be called the Library Expedition, and he traveled with 11 others to find the birthplace of the world to prove the existence of the Mother Goddess, Thiol. He and the others entered this place, called the Garden, and some emerged as gods, while others emerged as heroes. Aranzeb emerged a hero and fought alongside Tahyang and Melisara to stop the tyranny of Kyrios (their old friend, Gene).


Are there other servers the community's planned to use as a secondary RP hotspot or do I just wait it out for Wynn to open up (and LET ME IN)?

Yep! Some are going to Kaylin for now, and others are launching the EU client to check out Halnaak. I'm unsure of the lock status of either of them for the time being. x.x;


Would it be prudent to have a character on each side or is there a faction almost everyone's agreed to be on?

There are RPers on each side! West seems to have more, but as an Eastie myself, I'd say there's ample opportunity for RP either way.


Naming conventions, is there a quick cheat sheet for that too?

Once again a touch outdated. I really need to get to updating this post. For Elves in particular, there's not really a convention anymore, but there was like 2600 years ago, where your name incorporated the syllable that your clan name bore. Of course, there aren't any clans anymore. But Aranzeb and Aranzebia, for example, were from the Ar Clan. Alexander, and his niece (Aranzeb's wife) were from the Er Clan. (The English translation named her Nyn, but the Korean called her Nyner. Personally, I would have translated her name to Erin for... legibility.)

Welcome! As an Easty I know fuck-all about the west so can't really help you with anything there. But welcome to the game anyways~

Thanks for the replies! :D


I managed to get into Wynn and just rolled a Nuian guy for now. I do intend to be on both sides though!


So anything you can chuck my way about the Eastie Boys would be great too! I am looking at the Warborn because their transformation just screams DEVIL TRIGGER. I'll check the links in a bit. Thanks again :D
