The Emotions are a roleplay organisation, set up and moderated by Black_Wolf and Happiness, consisting of masked characters that are "villains for hire." Each Emotion's character styling was based on their name, each character within the organisation had a unique and often effective combat style. This meant that the usual sword and shield approach was often countered and forcing greater levels or role play talent to being achieved from their prey. Typical tag team attacks involved weapons such as halberds and scythes being combined with ambush tactics and swords.
Due to the nature and style that the Emotions became famous for in their roleplays there were complaints over the darkness and generally darker mood that the Emotions would add to often public and well respected places. After some initial disputes over their activities, they moved to acting by invitation only.
At their height, the Emotions would be invited to attack a notable person or rob a town, and a group of Emotions would then arrive in the town (usually with a parallel OOC thread to discuss the roleplay).
Recent changes in the mask rules have curtailed this, however, and many Emotions retired at that point, not wanting to be limited to one area, or not feeling that their main character was their Emotion in disguise, preferring to think of their Emotion as a separate entity. Those that remain currently work from a thread in London Commons called "The Rise of the Emotions", as well as their own subforum.
