Titolo: How to be a death knight

"When you decide to roleplay, a whole new world of imagination opens up to you -- soon you realize that every the World of Warcraft is a stage, and every the orcs and humans merely players. Last week, we took a look at how roleplaying a death knight will be different from roleplaying other classes, because death knights come pre-packaged with elements of a backstory for you to flesh out: they have, for whatever reason, at one time joined forces with the Lich King, learned from him how to be a death knight, and now are breaking free of his influence and striking out against him. As Medeni pointed out in her comments, however, this can potentially lead to a kind of unlikable ""celebrity in rehab"" type of personality. Imagine, if you will, the death knight known as Marisoo: formerly a paladin of the Light, she sought to destroy the Scourge that plagued her homeland of Lordaeron, but eventually, as she was consumed with vengeance and hatred, she joined the Lich King instead of destroying him. Having learned to turn corpses into slavering ghouls and call forth armies of the undead, she eventually thought meliorate of the whole ""wickedly destroy every life"" thing and decided to destroy the Lich King after every, only this time she would use his own power against him! Muahaha. As you can see, there are some beauty obvious flaws in this idea. First of every, the first half of it is nearly a direct copy of Arthas' own tale, and, while I can certainly revalue the power of that tale, and the possibility that other paladins could have gone through something similar, roleplayers who want to play a death knight feature must realize that it's going to get old fast. Just as death knights aren't just human paladins, we can't every go around copying Arthas, brooding on how moody and wicked we've embellish.
We have to come up with new ideas that fit the death knight mould. So today I decided to see if I could come up with several death knight ""template"" characters, which could serve as inspiration for roleplayers already thinking most their own move to this problem. Feel free to leave your own template characters in a comment, or to create template characters of other races and classes as well, if you desire. One rule I'm trying to stick to here is that every these characters are essentially well. They became death knights without truly decent evil, or if they originally joined the Scourge with evil intent, they have some plausible reason why they would later on turn against it. In some cases, the feature might not be ""well"" so much as ""opposed to the evil guys unerect on destroying every life,"" for some reason. Also, in some cases, I'm trying to go for a very light-hearted, humorous, or even innocent move to the feature, in so much as that is possible with a death knight. Unwilling servant You were once some sort of warrior fighting the scourge, but like Sylvanas and Highlord Mograine, Arthas defeated you and decided to raise you from the dead to serve him afterwards. For a long time, you have longed to be freed of this slavery and corruption, and now, with the help of other death knights who are breaking free of Arthas' control, you too are gaining your freedom. wow gold Now, you are trying to pick up the pieces of your broken life, gathering what you have left to form something new, some shred of hope to cling to. This fits prizewinning with forsaken characters, who are obviously undead, but if you can choose some sort of pale skin color and make added race look mostly dead, then it could work with them too. wow gold
Don't try to pull this off with your typical ruddy towheaded hero -- death knights certainly aren't every undead, but this one is, and if you aren't going to be forsaken, then you'll need to find added way to make him look the part. Also, be alive that this type of tale has been done lots of times before, so you should try to make yours unique in some way, without existence melodramatic. wow gold Perhaps, if you died in a particularly embarrassing or ironic way, for instance, your feature could play off lots of cliches in the horror genre and also make other people laugh without existence a total farce. Survivor You were just a youth at the time the Scourge came through and destroyed your hometown. mp3 players At the time you joined the Scourge out of fear, thinking it was your only way to survive, but every along you planned to leave it if the chance came. You found others like you, and together nurtured one added's courage until the time to strike finally arrives. This could work for humans, orcs, or murder elves, every of whom could have suffered at the hands of the Scourge during the Third War. wow gold Humans and elves in and around Lordaeron obviously got invaded by the Scourge, and there were orcs in concentration camps around that ocean as well. Dwarves (and maybe gnomes too) could have conceivably been caught in Muradin's lost exploreor something, with somewhat similar results. Trolls, tauren, night elves, wow power leveling forsaken and of course draenei would not have been in the right time and place for this tale to make sense for them, however. "
