Nah its laziness they want the higher end items to look good without leveling and thats what is really sad about it they could make a far more believable farmer if they spent an hour getting a toon to Lv12 than if they make a DK and do an essey in flag about how they are not a DK.


This 1000 times.

Because some of them are not interested in starting from scratch. Some aren't that fast levellers, and even though it takes less than a week -for you-, some will inevitably be slower - they might, for example, be stuck at certain levels because they want to roleplay instead. So they take a shortcut. So what? It's their game.

this is a –game-. NOT a job, a chore, or a standing military order: A game. A hobby, for fun, to relax, to enjoy.

We are on azeroth not the diskworld what works in one does not work in the other.


Wasn't quoting Discworld? (Never even read it to be honest) Its less 'import organisation from x setting' and more 'could be an interesting idea'.

Plus hey, the concept not working out ic could lead to fun conflict no?

In terry pratchets discworld series there is an organization run by a zombie called reg shoe who protests for rights for the undead, your idea is pretty much identical and anyone who's read discworld would think you were copying that.

Besides that undead creatures have recently been the cause of most of the worlds suffering so you'd get very little support especially given that it was the forsaken that betrayed th orcs at the wrathgate, used the plauge in gilneas, experiment on innocent civilians, kill their own people etc...

There is just no basis for sympathy.

I know there's no basis for sympathy, which is why I'd find it kinda interesting i.e they're fighting a losing battle. Plus I don't know, there's ic basis for an undead to try it/Discworld can't of been the only book to of done it ever >.>.

This reminds me of the similarities between Fire Bringer and Watership Down for some reason.

As for RP that made me nerdrage? Not so much nerdrage, but...

I remember very clearly an incident where Character A made a quip at Character B and Character C along the lines of "get out your handbags, ladies".

Player D then starts telling Player A off in our equivalent of LFRP-OOC, because apparently the term "handbag" doesn't exist in WoW. This scolding continues for a while, with Player D heading into ad hominem territory and ending with Player D claiming he was going to boycott Player A's guild, because they were obviously all lollers if they put up with Player A as their GL.

Really? Really, Player D? Really?

"Handbag"?

Really??

Its the only example i know of and in the discworld universe being undead does not automatically make you evil and in the steaming metropolis of ankh-morpork people dont tend to care what you are aslong as you dont poke your nose in their business.

In azeroth though all undead are evil even the forsaken due to the things they've done to forge their own territory and keep it, and unlike the discworld there is no humour to be had when your rotting uncle knocks on your door late at night only terror.

Also in thralls horde the undead were already equal and treated as such it was the forsakens own actions that earnt them the distrust they now suffer.

Having a Death Knight walking into the tavern I'm trying to run.
After asking for a drink my char told him several times to leave, since we weren't open.
Spits and insult my Blood Knight, starts a fight inside the tavern with her closest friend, getting killed inside the tavern eventually.
Just to get ressed the next day, showing up with his hive to beat up her student. And yes this included trying to summon Ragnaros inside the tavern as well.

Most fun part of it all. The Death Knight wields Sulfuras ICly, almost summoned the half Burning Legion, old drinking buddy of Archmage Vargoth and is the brother of Grand Magister Rommath himself.

And still not getting why we simply cannot allow him anymore inside the tavern. IC and OOC.

It made me wanna hit the desk with my face a couple of times.

I can't recall ever meeting anyone who wasn't a complete failure pull the "not a DK IC", course I suppose there can be a few good ones out there, just like there appearently are a few good dragon roleplayers out there.

Most folks I meet that roleplay High Elves anyway are usually failures too (again, there''s exceptions, sure), rolling DKs for blue eyes and claiming they were in Stormwind and Theramore w/e just earlier that day and are totally with the Alliance while walking around Silvermoon or Undercity or wherever with growth potions and randomly wtfpwning people with DK powers.

A half-dragon half-high elf who apparently has nothing better to do than walk around Silvermoon in a revealing outfit getting drunk and screwing random guys. I wish I was kidding.

This post made me facepalm, you try and claim that you run a tavern, seriously? It's a public building and you have no control over who comes in and who doesn't.

I rage at people without respect for life. People who would without a doubt fire their pistol at a stranger like it was nothing. Violent RPers in general kind of make me rage. Like if I'm having a conversation with a person, then I say something that ticks him off and he automatically pull out his gun, pointing it at me. Which leads me to a third point, which is disregarding the guards. In the middle of a street in Stormwind you can't just pull out your sword(lol) or summon demons, undead or your raptor pet. Do you think a city guard would let a freakin' dinosaur walk around in the city?
