Topic Development of a Character * Updated *
Wonderful ideas! I have only been on Moon Guard a year and have really enjoyed learning to rp, ( and happy that it does not begin or end in Goldshire). I found this wonderful site for help in character development. If you would like to check it out here it is. Hugs you all and hands out cookies and milk.
Great beginning guide!
I know that when I first got started RPing in WoW I had a bit of an issue in deciding what to do. I, of course, did something totally ridiculous. I went with a paladin who had fallen through a rip in the fabric of space and time. He preferred to cast those around him as heretics and denounced anyone who didn't swear allegiance to the Holy God Emperor. It uh..had interesting reactions!
That veil of anonymity really helps in just throwing a character out there that isn't necessarily who you really are. Be boisterous! Be crazed! Just have fun with it. You'll find people who get along with your sensibilities and your approach.
