Surprisingly cordial people. Turalyon has much less in the way of casual jerkery than I've seen in other server communities.
I attribute this to the "herb" market on the server
Wow, apparently those herbs have done a number on your character.
Nah I made him look old on purpose. I'm not sure why, but to me the awesomeness of a fighter who's really strong and experienced is further enhanced if he's also old. Strong + wise + experienced + good fighter = badass, but strong + wise + experienced + good fighter + old = BADASS.
It's like that "grizzled veteran" appeal. He's seen and survived a lot of sh*t, etc.
For Orc, surviving and seeing a lot of !**! includes the second war!
You were part of the Horde that tried to commit Genocide on the Humans/Dwarves/High Elves!
Rofl lore ftw. Yeah, when I get bored I try to think of RP-style backstories for my character(s) just to make it more interesting for myself to play lol I've never actually played seriously on an RP realm and I haven't shared any of these self-created RP backstories with anyone, but rest assured they are pretty awesome and it definitely makes questing and raiding (and PvP) more interesting for me. Lol
The forums are for trolling, silliness, and RP. Right now I'm pvping the !!!# out of BGs, killing Blood Elves first because their traitors, then Forsaken, then Orcs. the latter two because they are genocidal monsters!
(That and blood elves are usually mages or paladins, and both need to die ASAP.)
