One of the most prominent aspects in the Venture Co. Server is the RP climate. If you go looking for RP, you will find it.

"So I wanted to fish. Next thing I know the Midnight Reveries are having a great RP session behind me so I figured I'd join in." - Derken

RP Channel

A suggestion by the members of this community was the possibility to promote a broader use of the already existent RP channel. The name of this channel is “RP” and it has been around for a good while now, although it has solely served as us role-players as an obscured stage to practice our IC skills. I personally believe we could very well use the full potential of this tool to integrate the community under the purpose of promoting role-playing in our server, as well as communicate impromptu events, meet new role-players and, of course, practice your RP skills.

For that matter I shall place a reminder to all those interested in supporting this humble effort. The channel name is RP and I believe it exists on both sides of the coin, Alliance and Horde alike.

/JOIN RP today and be part of the fun!

Here is a good rundown of the RP channel and its subchannels orginally posted on forums by Ulchawak: The setting of the /rp channel is an Inn, which includes the following areas, each represented by its own channel:

RP Channels
Channel Subchannel of Faction Purpose
/rp Both Main tavern room of the Inn, includes a full bar, many tables, windows, and a raging fireplace with stone mantle.
/rpoutside /rp The immediate exterior of the tavern, a forested area with thick hedges and a path leading down to the lakeshore.
/rplakeshore /rp The shore of the lake has a pier for fishing and a semi-circle of rough-hewn benches, as well as a bonfire ring and spirit shrine.
/rpupstairs /rp Upstairs at the Inn there are five rooms, each with different quality beds or cots, a small hearth, and windows facing outdoors. Prices range from flophouse to chateau.
/rploft /rp The loft of the Inn has only one window, looking down over the lake. It is dark, and cluttered with cobwebs and dusty old trappings of the Inn's owners, as well as large bookshelves and a long, heavy oak table.
/rpcellar /rp Beneath the tavern floor is a large dugout cellar with cold stone walls and a soul shrine. The various supplies of the Inn are in a locked and warded underground pantry. Great spot for warlock rituals.

Known Factional Rivalries

Many guilds directly compete with one another between the Alliance and Horde camps. One of Venture Co.'s finest points are our multiple rivalries between the factions causing some of the most prolific battles on the server.

Keepers of Stromgarde The Blacktooth Grin Yes Direct confrontations due to a constant struggle to control Arathi (see the Battle for the Keep)
Keepers of Stromgarde Grunts No Direct confrontations due to a constant struggle to control Arathi (see the Battle for the Keep)

Known Intra-Factional Rivalries

Occasionally, guilds within the same faction argue and become bitter enemies. These inter-factional hatreds may not cause great battles, but tend to create great inter-guild RP stories.
