Things we’re lacking in Twitter RP – WoD edition

Here I am, back with my personal wishlist of things I feel we’re missing from our Twitter RP community on Twitter. The old list has been set to private for some time now, because it was starting to get really outdated. Not only many of the characters I wished for already appeared, but with Warlords of Draenor out, new priorities appeared. There are some important and cool characters that would be great to see on played out on Twitter. Like the previous one, it’s mostly a list of my personal preferences – if you feel there are other characters that you can do well and would be beneficial to our current RP environment, go ahead and create accounts for them!

While it may be tempting for some of RP old-timers to create those accounts, I think it would be best to let some new blood in, and don’t hog all the good characters for ourselves!

  • Reshad– a character intentionally designed to resemble Lorewalker Cho, he has however a much smaller role. He is a great storyteller with an interesting personality, and an outcast from the new timeline from Warlords of Draenor. Personally, I’d love to see more of his and Percy’s adventures, but Darkscryer Raastok, who appears to be the outcasts’ leader in WoD, would be a great addition as well.
  • Terokk– with Warlords of Draenor, this character, once cursed as a tyrant, is given a new lease of life. It turns out he wasn’t so bad after all and the players have already helped him to regain his sanity. Although he isn’t truly alive, he is a spirit watching over the outcasts, which can apparently switch between a cursed and winged form. With everything we learned about him in WoD, he’d be a great addition.
  • Fel-Sage Rhaze– Now, calm down, I know it’s not a canon character. In fact, it’s a character I invented for my Farahlon Game Design Exercise posts, to explain a new Shadow Council-aligned faction of arakkoa. Rhaze, implied to have been the founder of tBC’s Veil Rhaze, would be a former Sethekk turned into a vrock, a fel-corrupted arakkoa, and served Gul’dan in face of the great blow the adventurers dealt to the Sethekk.
  • Azuka Bladefury- Probably the only warlord missing from Twitter, and the only female warlord we know of, Azuka is certainly a promising character. Which is why she’ll likely die quickly, but let’s have her with us as long as we can, shall we?
  • Sunwalker Dezco  – A carry-over from the previous list, I would still like to see him on Twitter. Dezco is similarly to Baine a guy with heart in the right place, but he’s also kinda dumb, being infamous among the fanbase for “using babies as armor”. This could be played in fun ways, and the kind of personality Dezco exhibits would fill a certain niche in the current community.
  • Thaelin Darkanvil– Thaelin is character prominent now in Warlords of Draenor. For a long time, he merely stood in the Searing Gorge as a member of the Thorium Brotherhood, but he has now joined the forces Moira sent to Draenor in the name of Ironforge. Although he doesn’t have much personality beyond “dwarf”, he could still be a fun character to play with.
  • Bodyguards– Tormmok is already there, but the other bodyguards, like Leorahj or Vivianne, seem to have quite a lot of personality when you interact with them on the field of battle. It can even go beyond bodyguards and to other followers. Maybe we can see Pleasure-Bot 8000! Or Kimzy Pinchwhistle! Or Image of Archmage Vargoth! The possibilities are endless! Well, as endless as the number of followers.
  • Sal’salabim – One of the most unique denizes of Shattrath City, I greatly enjoyed the one quest he gave me. A hard-drinking demon who left the Burning Legion and lives like a small-time thug sounds a pretty cool and unusual character concept. I think I’d enjoy Sal’salabim on Twitter. He has some past history with Verroak too.
  • Darius Crowley  – A controversial figure in Gilneas because he basically handed his kingdom over to the Horde, he nevertheless remains a very prominent and unique character. His Twitter handle would HAVE TO be “LordBoxhead” or a variation thereof.
  • Theldurin the Lost – In a pinch, Lucien Tosselwrench or Martek the Exiled would do. One of these crazy gag characters that could be pretty funny on Twitter. Also, he could have ties to me, Lunk, and Myzrael. Also, I would love to learn if he finally punched that dragon in the face.
  • Myzrael – Also known as “Theradras’s hot sister”, she was a bit confusing back in vanilla. Now, in Cataclysm, she appears uncorrupted in Deepholm commenting on her release in the original events of Arathi Highlands. Whether she came coupled with a Theradras account, she could be the source of endless jokes about sister-sister rivalry, especially one between a “hotter” and “uglier” sister.
  • Or’kaos the Isane – Also known as “Or’kaos the Pointless”. Added in the game as the original culmination of the Netherwing questline, Or’kaos’ role in it has been since replaced by another quest. He, however, is left in the game with no purpose, just wandering around his little floating island with no way out, which is probably why he’s insane. Probably was once a fel orc transformed into a nether drakonid for his service to the Illidari.

Like the previous list, I will try to update this one with new additions when they become relevant. If you have ideas for cool characters that I omitted and that you’d want someone to do, message me in any way and I’ll add them here if I agree.

Infinite Azeroths: Flashpoint

The gathered heroes stood opposite the newly arrived villains. The Arbiters. Lords of the Nexus. The true benefactors behind Kairozdormu’s recent rampage across the timelines. And behind them, a nexus of arcane energies that brought them here. A hole in the fabric of reality. A rift to another realm. A realm that even Chromie, a bronze dragon, found to be outside of her knowledge. She came to see all realms anywhere within the universe, past, present or future, this timeline or another. And yet this, for the first time in a long while, was a complete mystery to her. What is this Nexus? Who are these Arbiters? What do they want? Why would they erase from existence such an uncountable amount of lives?

“I know all the questions racing in your head,” The Arbiter in the center, Lord Order, responded without any hint of emotion in his voice, “and I know the answers to all of them. But all in the right order.”

Shaman Dezco frowned at the response. “Do you have no conscience?” he said. “Do you know how many lives were lost forever because of you?”

“Yes,” another Arbiter, Lord Reason, responded, “We know the exact number of lives lost. And no, we have no conscience. We have abandoned such… obstacles to true success when we became what we are now.”

Infinite Azeroths: There But For the Grace of the Light

Zin-kalim, the capital of the Kaldorei Empire, over 12,000 years ago. Inside the higher levels of the glorious, marble palace a little girl paced around nervously. When she noticed a bird sitting on the window-sill, she runs up to it and scared it off. Near her, two royal guards stood guard before a large, glided door. Standing almost motionlessly, they only kept looking at the little girl. They were visibly unnerved by her constant pacing, and yet remained motionless, as was their duty. In their minds, they were just counting time for their shift to be finished. Suddenly, the little girl noticed something – a tall, handsome night elf male was slowly approaching. The guards remained motionless, but watched the new arrival carefully.

Then, the doors behind them opened. A male midwife with a bloodied apron came out, cleaning his hands on a piece of cloth. The girl momentarily stopped walking around and looked at the man. The midwife smiled.

“Congratulations, princess Aszune, you have a sister. Your mother wishes to call her Azshara.” The newly arrived male approached them all and without speaking a word, he kept just looking between them. The midwife looked at him, not recognizing the person. “Who would you be?” the midwife said, “The herald to bring the news to the people?”

The guest smirked and spoke up with an eerily echoing voice. “In a way. I am a herald… of your doom.”

Infinite Azeroths: The Swarm

Timeline: Azeroth-10
Character: Mekgineer Sicco Thermaplugg

Sicco stood over the broken precipice that formed where once had been one of the greatest science markets of Gnomeregan. In his mind, he could still see the streets and corridors full of curious gnomes and stands, brimming with young scientists eager to prove their theories and to get noticed by the great minds that ruled Gnomeregan. Sicco had stood once at the very same spot where he was now, but at that time he was looking down from his mechanized walker upon the young tinkerers presenting their inventions. Of course, he feigned a lack of interest in anything that was going on, but in truth, only power was more interesting to him that science. He saw the potential in many of these youngsters, and was even envious of some of them, but he knew that without him noticing them, they would amount to nothing. So he did not notice. Or at least pretended not to. But now, Sicco looked down again and saw only broken rocks, metal rods jutting out of the crags and skeletons of long-dead gnomes. Among them however was one more thing, one that was far more important for Sicco – broken dreams, his as well as theirs.
