Tell me Moon Guard, in your own words, what makes a Mary Sue? An over powered, seemingly unstoppable, plot-armour clad apex of supremacy-bound writing.
Do tell, in point form, in essay format, or just do whatever the hell you want.
Let's just talk about this.
I just want to start by saying that Gurvir isn't the first alliance blood elf. He isn't even the first alliance blood elf RPer. He's just a loud poster on these forums
I think a Mary Sue, in terms of roleplaying, is someone who godmodes, powergames, and metagames.
It has nothing to do with a specific trait like being a half-breed, dragon, alliance blood elf, relative to a lore character, or whatever.
People associate those things together because Mary Sues have a tendency to also be one (or more) of those things. But being those things isn't what makes them bad.
Someone isn't a good RPer if they RP a human from northshire. I mean, they -might- be. But that wouldn't be what makes them a good RPer.
In the same vein, being a dragon or a naga or a half-breed or related to a lore character or the guy who killed Arthas does't make someone a bad RPer. They -might- be bad, but that isn't what would make them bad.
Honestly, I think it would be cool for RP-PvE guilds to compete for the right to say they killed X boss by getting the realm first. If they were good RPers I would just accept it and roll with it. If they were jerks I'd ignore them.
