Warcraft Sues - Fear for your Lore

I decided to poke around Wyrmrest Accord for a bit, attending a local tavern event (which went to hell in a hand basket real quick), and this elf girl decided to seat herself across from me. This is what I saw...

Kodie Moonrage Sue

Yes. "Fuck society"... You tell 'em, sister.

Edit: And slightly off my original topic, but I just had to post this. I just now saw an add in /guildrecruitment for:

"The Dragonflights have had a long history. The rise of Deathwing, the situation with the infinite dragonflight and so on. Now, the list grows as a new order of Dragons and their followers emerge unto the world. Behold! The rise of The Silver Dragonflight! A new sect of dragons from all flights who wish to stop fighting their brothers and sisters and focus on the real threats of the world. We seek more followers as well as other dragons to join us!"

While I do feel that dragon RP can be done well...it's usually not. And being that this guild is going to be full of dragon RPers, I...have my reservations.

I really really hate RP descriptions that give the character's whole fucking life story. From looking at them.

I can sum up my feelings about such "descriptions" in one word letter.

Hehe, very true. I'd be hard pressed to remember a tavern event that actually went well.

I...Reeeaally don't think that's gonna work. We already have the Wyrmcrest, why form another Dragonflight that lets in mortals to help?

Because clearly there are special dragons who disagree with their current Aspects.

Though all evidence is lore is that the dragons of a flight tend to have the same disposition as their Aspect (ie. Black Dragon Flight all being evil). And they tend to follow them in their causes. But I could be wrong and we'll have to see what happens.

Because then they can all be shiny sparkly princesses!

Actually a guild of characters devoted to aiding the Wyrmrest Accord would be pretty cool.

What's neat is that I'm sorta half-heartedly working on this with my orc shaman. (Once she stops bein' arrested for punching Sky-Reaver Blackscar in the mouth, anyway.) I think part of it is that as an orc, she feels kinda ... indebted to the Reds for that whole enslavement thing, and part of it is that I've unintentionally racked up two or three dragon mounts. (Netherwing, Bronze, and when I get off my ass and buy it, the Red. My ass will also be farming Onyxia for the mount she drops.) It sorta follows in with the "hey, if you're cool enough to ride us, you can come hang with us for a while, too".

I have, in my years of WoW, seen -one- dragon RPer that was done well. This was because of two things:

A) She didn't go advertising that she was one, so when she revealed that she was, indeed, a black dragon, it made sense while still being a surprise.
B) She was trying to subvert the Alliance rather than go against the grain and be all "I'ma special good black dragon".

They're out there. I was actually going to do a write up of a Red one I found.

I've seen one dragon RP'd well, and he was a red dragon. Didn't go advertising, and I only found out OOC because I had a hunch and guessed based on some ongoing subtleties. He was basically a young dragon with a terrible curiosity for the ongoings of the mortal races, so he'd fully immerse himself in them. I haven't seen the RPer around for a while, but I really appreciated seeing a dragon pulled off as a curious powerful entity rather than something sparkly special look-at-me.

Someone was advertising a guild for blood elf supremacy yesterday, and I could go with that as a premise, except they called it 'Knights of Blonkeys'. I dont even know.

Her eyes are as crystal as the stars. Assuming the stars somehow magically turned dark and sunken.

Also, she was totally okay with her dad dying, but when her mom was kidnapped, she went out and saved her conveniently forgot about her and sank into a well of despair and doing the exact same things she'd already been doing with her mom roguery.

I will admit, the fact that she's a heavy drinker certainly explains the drinking. Or possibly vice versa.

Also, she's nothing but trouble. Unless you're a friend. In which case you're okay, even though FUCK SOCIETY, because if she didn't have friends, who could she RP this shit at spill her fragile, spiritual, girlish dreams and beliefs to?

I wonder if I can break this Dragonflight too. Not that the first time was on purpose...

By all means, share your ways! This guild was on Silverhand, and I flippin' screeched when I saw they DARE touched Wyrmest with their 'sparclee speshiul' dragonflight.

No, no, no, no, NO.

If you're a expert at breaking dragonflight guilds, by all means, I'll hold a flag up to root ya on!

Well, yeah, there's a bit of guilt whenever I say something OOC, because by that point Im usually snapping...But sometimes they need a good smack in the face to see the light.

I can't imagine a night elf wearing make-up. Purple paint? Whaa?

Also, wtf well-known rogues? If you're a rogue and you're hangin' out in town, you should be trying to make sure that NO ONE KNOWS YOU'RE A ROGUE.

Also... is it just me, or did she type this while her character was "drunk"? Bahahaha.

My character is a well known rogue

My character is well known because she's a loudmouthed actress of a rogue who claims she's a duelist, actress and, well, anything BUT a rogue

Tough, but fragile? WTF? That's not even virtually, physically or realistically possible. Hey sue creator, when your character's personality description has reached past virtually impossible despite being in the setting of a virtual world, you know your character desperately needs to have some serious re-designing done.

Sues: they enjoy contradicting their descriptions.
