@9 You have a character that claims to have owned the land Brill sits on... how does that not break lore? As best I know from canon, Lordaeron (and by proxy its "suburbs" like Brill) has existed since humans came to Azeroth, or at least as far back as recorded history. Why would there be a barony system when the kingdoms are relatively small to begin with? I'm not trying to shoot holes or anything; I'm geuinely curious how you rectify lore gaps.Personally, I tend to loathe people that grant supreme l33tness to their characters. On Farstrider, I met a guy who claimed to be the youngest son of Uther and was reforming the Order of the Silver Hand. No rhyme or reason behind the claim (no backstory, no "proof", etc). It just seemed to be an excuse to make oneself important.When creating RP alts, I keep it simple and plausible. For instance, I have a BE Priest that was raised on Fenris Isle until the Plague came. He lived off the land for a few years, met up with some orcs, studied the priesthood in Org (sequestering allows him to have lived there prior to BC), and he sold most of his stuff for a ticket and sailed for Silvermoon. It allows him to have had historical interaction without making him a historic figure.
