Yo.

So, I was thinking about RPing on someone elses post with Urr'Kel (Faynt's, no one else has replied to her thread yet), but so far any RP thread I reply to seems to mysteriously die.

So, I'm just curious, before I go and post on someone elses thread, what is your feelings about DK's (my DK in general, links to his stories and stuff below) role playing before WotLK hits shelves? I feel its a very good way to develop character before you play, and gets the RP ideas flowing. So...thoughts?

I'd LOVE it if you replied to my thread. :D I don't mind Death Knights at all, and since Faynt may become one, I'd like to see her reaction.

Well, my DK is a bit..queer..compared to your cookie cutter stereotypes, but still, as long as you're cool with it I'll reply. I just don't want to scare people away from your thread rp!

well, since this is a discussion thread about Deathknights, I'll add a question. Could a death knight be someone who was once human and was killed? Essentially raised as a scourge, but then somehow developed the abilities of a deathknight, or else how are we going to have Forsaken deathknights?

Xenny would LOVE some RP interaction. I have sort of left his story, for the time being, out in the open for the fact that I will be wirting more once the expansion is released.

He is FAR from your cookie cutter. If not reading the whole thing for a back story on him, the last 3 or 4 posts relate to his transition to Death Knight and the current state he is in.

The way they are setting things up in the Lore, you have been actively fighting for your faction for awhile, then you were killed and raised in the service of the Lich King. So the long and short of it that if you want to RP a Forsaken, you'd have to have been a Forsaken before the DK-ness. Now, not everyone fallows the lore to the letter, so I don't think having died a human and living as a Forsaken would hurt things. Just don't say that you participated in the DK starting area, or there could be conflict.

I'm about to start writing my first DK RP post as well, but it's in a thread that predates the expansion in the timeline so the DK is still going to be in Scourge control. Keep in mind the order of events when you start RPing Tirralys. =D

My answer to this would be that a Forsaken could have been corrupted into joining Arthas, even with their 'free will' from the regular rag-tag scourge, and become a death knight that way. As for if they could go from scourge -> DK, I don't know.

I will have to read it all, to be honest I was veering away from 'established' rp threads, ones that have 10 or more posts in them. Besides that, I still wasn't sure if people would want me to intrude on their RP even if it does say ((OPEN!)) in the title, merely because I seem to be a thread killer. Not trying to make myself the center of attention, just saying it seems to be how it is. To boot, I'm not sure if it's the DK thing, the way I play my DK, or just my writing style.

Even so, I will try to post to yours Brox when I can, I'll have to take a minute to read through once or twice to make sure I don't misunderstand anything and post correctly (as I do sometimes misunderstand things that are going on since I more 'skim' then 'read' in auto-mode)

Most definitely. Most of my RP so far has been in 'post expansion/break free' time. Because that's when my DK is fun for me. Being semi-mindless drone never appealed to me...especially from a RP perspective. Everyone is practically the same, save a few minor differences.

Edit - also, thank you to whichever mod fixed my title from just Discussion to everything, since it pretty much is everything

Scourge Death Knights aren't mindless drones. They're just, unquestioning. The way I view it is that they have this motivation and these feelings towards the Lich King, but they don't know where it is from. And they don't care.

They are still free to realize their dreams, take matters into their own hands, use their own tactics (unless the Lich King tells them otherwise, but that's more loyalty than forced control). I'll point to my post as an example after I write it. *begins to think that maybe he's in too many RP threads*

That does make sense, and I did put Urr'Kel originally 'looking up' to Arthas as the omnipotent father figure he never really had. But that could work into my rp for 'current time' DK

I'll throw myself in this thread for DK LFRP as well. Bio is linked in the profile image, send me a PM if you think your characters could possibly RP with 'im.

all your characters are queer, Tir. what's up with that? damn Canadians. i don't see anything wrong with RPing a DK now - they're going to start trickling in soon anyway. may as well get used to them! i'll RP with anyone. even Broxigan.

Well, Tirralys wasn't queer, other then he wasn't gay and didn't have the sexual libido of a porn star.

But yeah, most of my characters are weird in one way or another. But that's the way they're fun for me o.O Tirralys wasn't fun for me for a while (ask Ninorra) because he was just too evil and stead fast. The scourge thing did open a window of opportunity for me to continue with my story line (wanting to kill the regent) but it ended too soon after I tried getting into it.

But, Urr'Kel is less hinging on outside sources then Tirralys, just about as evil but has the queer traits from both Licidion and Ela'Jinn, plus some. So it should be fun for years to come, as there is no barring trait that would come back and bite me in the ass.

I do hope all Death Knights come to the thread Xenny started up, and join us in some role play.

i looked at Xenny's threads, they were all way far along and seemed mostly to be about him mumbling to himself, i really couldn't see any decent way to fit Las in, other than to stand in the background and smirk at his stupidity.

Hah! I actually have a thread going with Urr'Kel that is, I hope, a thread that will be open to other DKs, conversations, showing of character and what not. It is pretty wide open and I am leaving it where it is until other people come in and then I will advance the story to something more.

I saw that Xenorin. I may jump in there for a bit, but the premise of making friends is a little off for me hehe

One man's friend is another man's exploitable contact.

When you're under Scourge command, you've got a direct connection to the Lich King at all times. What other contact do I need? The only way to get higher in the food chain is to kill Arthas.

[e] I should also add, the way the DK lore works is that you are trained and set against your fellow death knights the entire training process. Only the strong get to live. So really, the only reason to befriend someone is so that you can kill them with their guard down before they kill you.

I'd actually like to start in with mine, but not having access to the beta nor digging around for spoiler info, I don't want to start something only to find come expansion I was either talking out of my ass or way in left field.

To those who may have missed it last week:

We have an introduction story up in the Nether Legends Section that we would like alot of the DKs to start in since some of us would have a possibility of knowing one another from our time with the Lich King.

Story is called The Dead March On.
