Straight from the help file on Feudal Realms. Compliments Terloch for putting it there. To understand some, you kind of need to know some of the characters.


/\\,/\\,
/| || ||
|| || ||
||=|= ||
-|| || || any, many, many people have asked, 'Terloch, what is a twink?', so I
|, \\,\\, will do my best to explain to you what I personally think the Feudal
_- Realms version of a 'twink' is to clarify things. We'll use the mode
popularized by Jeff Foxworthy to describe them...

You might be a twink if...you have an alt in every house just so you can get
gossip to spread back and forth, pk when your side is winning, or loot the best
items from one house to another.

You might be a twink if...you know something is against the rules, know it is
not hard coded, and break the rule knowing that if no one is on to catch you
that you will probably get away with it.

You might be a twink if...you've been busted enough times to know the vnum for
the Realm of the Dead room.

You might be a twink if...you think the names Gandalf, Roxorz, Kewlies, Zeus,
Terlick, and other assorted niceties are acceptable names and take offense at
the mere thought of being asked to pick a new name.

You might be a twink if...you create as an elf and immediately ask for someone
to summon you to Stonegate because you might get lost in Kisah.

You might be a twink if...at level 25 you repeatedly ask for yet another
summons
into gas beasts to try to get your corpse back for the third time.

You might be a twink if...after several warnings, multiple jailings, and a few
threats of sitebanning that you still cannot figure out that people who aren't
pk aren't supposed to help those who are pk at all.

You might be a twink if...YOU CAN'T FIND YOUR CAPS LOCK KEY!

You might be a twink if...when you talk to someone you insist on using socials
in multiples of four (or sadly but true, more).

You might be a twink if...your character gets married, has sex, and has twins all in the span of a real day, just so you have another alt to level up, find
some reason to hate their parents, and to join another house.

You might be a twink if...your character has been in more than three houses, or
been outcast by more than one noble, only to find some shred of a reason to get
yet another one to take you into his or her service to start all over again.

You might be a twink if...you have so many alts that you lose track of their
names and/or passwords and have to have an admin look them up for you.

You might be a twink if...you collect maxloaded eq that your character cannot
use, simply to have it so no one else can

You might be a twink if...your last name is Nomiki.

You might be a twink if...you write a note on the boards, log out, log on one
of your alts, and write a supporting note on how cool the original note was.


Tikui adds these:

You might be a twink if you ask for abludgeon when your level 10,
but when someone asks you for a bludgeon you give them the bird.

you might be a twink if you complain about your 15K base.

You might be a twink if you complain about your 2.3K base.

You might be a twink if you name your alt Arth,
when our original character is Marth.

Question

"A Definition of "Twink"





"Twinkery" is the foolish belief that you can somehow "win" a role-playing game. Thus, Twinks tend to take an approach to character creation/gameplay that enhances the chances of achieving what they view as a "win".

Combat-Twinks: Believe that to "win" in the game, you must acquire massive amounts of "Experience Points" in battle. Load up on all combat-related Abilities, acquire military-grade weapons, and pick up only those Disciplines/Spheres/Gifts that enhance their chances in combat. Tend to make "insta-kill" posts: "I leap out from the trees blowing 8 Rage and hit you nine times with my Grand Klaive for 212 Agg Damage, then fade back into the night."

Drama-Twinks: Believe that "winning" involves being at the center of attention, at ALL times. Common tactics include creating multiple-XOver characters (True Mage Gypsy/ Kinain/ Kinfolk/ Mediums) and running extensive plots in which their character is publicly put through ####--but never, ever dies. Even suicide is only a temporary state of being. Likewise, if the character routinely enters in a state of near-death, writhing on the floor as their multiple wounds bleed on the carpet (and it's amazing the places some folks will go to in order to avoid a trip to the hospital), the player is a probable Drama-Twink.

"Special" Twinks: Much like Drama Twinks, these folks try to hog the spotlight. However, they take it one step further by totally ignoring anything resembling rules for character creation. Bete of animal types that DON'T have a Changing Breed are common, here, as are out-and-out rules violations (often involving Sphere Magic-wielding Fae). Also common is the tactic of "borrowing" Merits and Flaws from other systems (Say it with me: "Wings!"). The inevitable justification for this is a loud and obnoxious defense of the "Golden Rule"--ignoring that this has no place online, where there are no STs.

Über-Twinks: Cousin to the Combat-Twink, this fellow can't be beaten or shown up in any way, shape, or form. While rarely found to be in outright violation of the rules, this character has nothing approaching a "weakness". Whether they are an Elder (Methuselah?!?), Vampire, a Legendary Garou or a Master/Archmage, these folks can come up with a counter for anything that might harm, embarrass or otherwise make their character look in any way less than perfect, invincible and omnipotent/omniscient. Look for multiple Lores at 5, Mastery of four or more Spheres, scads of out-of-Tribe/Breed Gifts, or several Disciplines at Rank 7 or 8--inevitably including Thaumaturgy.

Now, of course, we come to the real problem: all of the above, save the "Special" category, are also totally viable online character concepts. Not every Angst Queen, Combat God or even Very Powerful Character is a de facto Twink. Even "Special" characters might not be Twinky in a TT game.

The difference is in attitude. The Twink will never, ever, allow themselves to be derailed. Drama Twinks won't give up the spotlight. Combat Twinks are immune to failure in combat. The Uber Twink will never say, "There's nothing more I can do."

You might be a twink if... you pride yourself on how many characters you've gotten outcasted.

You might be a twink if... you switch personalities and/or alliances every other day, and your character is not schizophrenic.

You might be a twink if... you hire a friend to play one of your characters for an evening, in an effort to prove you haven't been multi-playing.

You might be a twink if... once every two months, you get caught cheating, make a big scene, post notes degrading the owner of the game, end up getting denied, and then come back as another character, rinse, and repeat.

You might be a twink if....your character dies and you create a new one related to them, just to avenge their death.

You might be a twink if....you claim to have read the rules and yet still request to become a Jedi on a MU* where they're not allowed to be played by PCs.

You proba--I mean, might be a twink if....you ask for every gift and fault on the list that could help you out in a tough situation...and then don't understand why your request was denied - repeatedly.

You might be a twink if you cant spell out words, and a common sentence consists of no more then 4 letters and maybe a handful of numbers.

You might be a twink if the people you talk to constantly have to ask if your ASKING or STATING something due to your lack of punctuation.

You might be a twink if your level 1 and slapping PKillers around, just because they cant retaliate.

You might be a twink if a long emote for you is 'So and so nods.'

You might be a twink if your name is a phrase, backwards or forewards, doesnt matter. (i.e Super Killer, Grea Twarrior, etc.)

You might be a twink if you wont VOTE for your mud without getting a reward. (special items etc.- promotion of the mud you play doesnt seem to be enough anymore)

You might be a twink if you use identifier tags on every global and communication form- (i.e. Twink says- >>>TWINK5000!!!<<< hello?)

You might be a twink if you use this statement in reference to the implementor- The Implementor doesnt know his a$$ from a golfhole. (And then get angry when your smoten.)

You might be a twink if you name yourself Mota, then ask people for donations.

You might be a twink if you name yourself Atom, thinking Mota backwards is okay, but dont realize its also like a nuclear atom, etc.

You might be a twink if you use an IN-character global channel OOCLY to correct someone for their OOC-use of it. (LEARN WHAT TELLS ARE)

You might be a twink if you have a weapon restringed/named to a light-saber. (Depends on the mud in some cases.)

You might be a twink if you restring/name a weapon into 'Your wang' then constantly point out how you land a critical/perfect strike on someone with your wang. (Word varies)

You might be a twink if you put what your character is wearing in your description, as a reason for justifying wearing stuff that is good to your stats, but your character wouldnt wear.

You might be a twink if you ask to be an Admin after playing the mud for 5 minutes, then call all these people you dont know stupid because you were denied.

Thats all for now.

Aw crap. Could you guys have at least missed ONE? I mean damnit, I don't TRY to be a twink, I'm just so good at it...

You're also a twink if you DO get imm access on a MUD and then proceed to show the admins how a level 54 imm can do everything a level 59 can, then don't offer any explanations to the very stupid coder as to how to fix this problem.

Yes, also guilty of this. In my defense, the main admin was an IRL friend

-Visko has grown up a bit since then. But don't expect much.

...If you've been Nuked so many times you only play MUDs where "Crispy Critter" is an actual race..you might be a Twink..

...if you're level 52 (in a 1000 level MUD) and you put Lord/Lady as a prename but then whine and complain about Harassment because people send Bounty Hunter mobs (usually level 900 and cost 5 million gold a "contract") after you under the IC explanation of "regicide by the head royality (ie "royal" mobs)"..you might be a Twink

...if you get Nuked and come back and see your former character now as a wimpy mob in the Newbie area...you might be a Twink...

..if you join a clan that is an Exploration clan (per their Clan Plan) and you cant even navigate outside the main town..at level 150..you might be a Twink...

...if you brag how you already made 5 other characters before in the MUD and maxed their levels, yet whine about not having any gold within the first 5 minutes..you might be a Twink (or moron..you choose. )....

....if you log onto a new MUD and their MOTD mentions you specificly and the words Rules, Nuke, and Ban in the same sentence..you might be a Twink...and a well known one at that.

...if you slap around another player (not knowing it's the Admin taking a break) and pushing the envelope on breaking rules and policy only to have a fido get postal on you..you might be a Twink...

You might be a twink if... you OFFER your players in game rewards for hitting the vote button, and even set up a jumping isp to help the scam.

Sorry, couldn't resist that one either.

You might be a twink if you act smart all the time on any "You might be a twink.." lists.

Take that, Molly

I love you too, Ingham.

However, I don't extend my love to the other target of my 'smart' remarks.

Just saw this string... ####, I hate that I can say I have seen people doing that junk. It's just... wrong. *shudder* But anyways.... I thought I might add, if it's not too late.

You might be a twink if... you log on using the name of a former twink that has been banned just to annoy the imms then precede to do all the twinkish things formerly mentioned.
