All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players. In World of Warcraft, that player is you! Each week, Anne Stickney brings you All the World’s a Stage with helpful hints, tips and tricks on the art of roleplay in WoW.
Memories. Regardless of who you are or what your background is comprised of, one of the core concepts of being human is that you carry your memories with you. Good or bad, these memories of past events, arguments and special moments help shape you into the person you are today. Human beings take those memories and use them to shape their perception of what’s happening to them in the present, or even in the future. It’s all part of being human.
The same applies to roleplay and creating a “realistic” character. Last week, we talked about looking at your character with a critical eye — an exercise in distancing yourself emotionally from that character you’ve created and looking at the bare bones behind it and any problems that might arise. Over the next couple of weeks, we’re going to be looking at character creation from the other end of things, how to comfortably root your character into existing lore and give him or her that touch of realism that sets your character apart.
