Calling Role Players!

Postby Pommie » March 7th, 2015, 9:06 am

((If you happen to be an active RP'er on any Americas-region realm and a member of the Alliance—and want to bring some RP to your battle pets—then consider coming to my in-character Pet Battle Classes.

Classes are Thursdays at 4pm pacific time in Darnassus. The official announcement is below:))

                                    

Hi! I'm Pommie Tappet, Ph.D., professor of biological sciences with a specialty in the small fauna of Azeroth, Outland, and Draenor! I'm also author of the 40 page doctoral dissertation on pets.

I'm proud to report that my pet battle classes are just starting out, offered through the prestigious <Stormwind University>.

If you're interested in collecting, battling, training, taming, or anything else related to small pets, this class is for you, regardless of skill level. In this class we cover everything:
  • The species of pets
  • Genotypes and phenotypes
  • Qualities and attributes
  • Capture of wild pets
  • Battles
  • Strategies for the Grand Master Tamers
  • Strategies for the Celestial Tournament
  • Strategies against other players ((PvP))
  • ((Pet Battle Add-Ons))
  • Expanding your collection
  • Economics of pet battles
  • Ethics of pet battles

Classes are held every Thursday at the 4th bell of the evening at the terrace off the throne room and library at Stormwind Keep in Darnassus.

((Sorry, Horde! Until I transfer my goblin, Megzy, back to Wyrmrest Accord (Americas), I'm afraid this is an Alliance-only event))

You don't have to be a student of Stormwind University to attend these classes. You can audit them for free! Of course, students of the University will be graded. Attendance and battle exams will be parts of your grade.

We're starting our third class on the 12th of March, but don't worry! The first class was just introductory, and we'll do a quick summary of the second class. I hope you all come with hungry minds and a love of pets!

Yours sincerely!
Pommie Tappet.

((RP event, every Thursday at 4pm pacific time at the in Darnassus.

If you want to get into pet battles, this event is for you!

If you already love pet battles and want to get into some pet battle RP, this event is also for you!))

Your take-home midterm exams were due at midnight last night, and I've completed grading them. Click here to review the graded exams.

((Please note: I graded only those from RP realms that were submitted before the deadline. Feel free to peek at another student's for the right answers.))

For today's class, we'll go over the exam and see where people tended to struggle. See you this afternoon!



Update!

Although we had a few RP griefers at the start, they did the right thing and left (not after lobbing a few choice insults, but hey—kids these days!). And we ended up with a nice short class!

The reason it was short: it was time for the Pet Battle Midterm Exam!

This is a take home exam and you are allowed to consult your notes. Click here to take the exam.

Completed exams are due by May 20th 2015, which should be plenty of time to complete and turn them in. Good luck everyone!


Bumpminder!

Our next class is May 14th at 4pm pacific time. We'll meet in Darnassus as usual.

It's time for midterm exams, so bring your #2 quills.

Still looking for guest lecturers on the Horde side! Pet Battle Classes will be starting for the Horde next month



Update!

We had a fun field trip! Our next class will be back in Darnassus, on May 7th at 4pm pacific time. We'll be back in Darnassus.

Also important: I am looking for guest lecturers on the Horde faction! I will be starting up this same class for the Horde, but taught by the goblin Pommìe Pocketbomb.



Bumpminder!

Our next class is tomorrow, April 30th at 4pm pacific time.

It's our first field trip so please meet just outside Goldshire. We will also have our guest lecturer, Jun "Threespears" Kettlebelly.

See you tomorrow!



WHOA!

I am honored and humbled to announce that Turwinkle, the Gnome Mage, posted an interview with Pommie on the RP Pet Battle Classes! Thank you, Turwinkle! Thank you so very much!

Video URL:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WegOj08CzSA — wooo!



WOW! Our last class was a record-breaker: 31 students from 3 different reamls!

I truly love just how creative and spontaneous we are in these classes. It's key to making it special. Thank you all!



Our next class is April 23rd at the 4th bell of the afternoon ((pacific time)). Our topic last week was supposed to be synergy, but we ended up discussing weather, so this week's class will be on synergy.



WOW WOW WOW! I am so impressed by the turnout and the quality of the role-players that show up! Another incredible class on April 16th! Thank you all for participating.



Reminder:

Our next class is tomorrow, April 16th at the 4th bell of the afternoon ((pacific time)). Our topic this week: synergy!

((Classes are held on the Alliance faction of Wymrest Accord (Americas) realm in Darnassus. If you're from off-realm or off-faction, send me a private message here on warcraftpets.com and I'll add you and invite you over before class starts.))



The first battle quiz is over! We had an incredible turnout!



Another fantastic class! I love how interactive everyone is. All the role-players really make it special.



The next class is tomorrow, April 2nd at 4pm in Darnassus on the Wyrmrest Accord (Americas) realm. If you're from off-realm and want to attend, send me a private message here with your battle tag and I'll invite you over.



Yet another update:

My RP pet battle class was featured on World of Warcraft Community Magazine issue #8! Woot! I'm so happy! ^_^



Another quick update:

The material from session #5 (pet attributes and genetics) was pretty advanced and went by quite fast too. Some students have asked for some notes, and, as promised, they're ready:

Class Notes from Session 5: Pet Attributes and Genetics



Just a quick update:

I've gotten whispers from players on other realms who want to join the classes, so to accommodate them I'm moving the classes to Darnassus, since Stormwind doesn't allow cross-realm folks. I've updated the post above to reflect that.

Another awesome class on March 26th! We covered pet genetics—and accurately as they are reflected in game!

Next class will be April 2nd. We'll cover the remaining pet attributes, and next class will be a battle exam—with a twist!

If you're not on Wyrmrest Accord, send me a PM here with your Battle Tag and I'll add you as a friend and invite you to cross-realm Darnassus.))

If I could play on EU realms, I would love to teach them there. We have so much fun! Really!

EDIT: There might be an EU Pommie.

EDIT 2: Fixed URL. A very kind player gave up the name "Pommie" without any accent mark to me! Thank you, Wilbur the Gnome!
