There is one thing I put into all my descriptions which I find extremely important and which can never be displayed properly by the game itself: the voice. (I've had only one character in my whole WoW time whose voice was actually that much like the in game voice that I didn't need this.)It's the first thing you notice when someone starts speaking, and it has a huge influence on the impression you get about that someone.A description should only contain what deviates from the in game appearance or can't be displayed by it, and is important for an adequate first impression. Trust me, you don't need to tell me that your blond elf is blond. No, I don't care what scars you have between your buttocks because unless we meet in bed, my character wouldn't know right away.

This is what I get for pressing submit too soon. Here some example flags of mine, from the mundane to the more 'out there':"A tall, calm man in his middle ages. His tone of voice is smooth and self-secure.""Very pale, skinny and on the short side, this young man is in a perpetual good mood, most often shown by a small grin. His voice is energetic and lively, but sometimes, he seems a bit short of breath, or look unfocused or tired.""A tall, severe looking, very flat-chested woman appearing to be in her early 30s. Her voice is hard and rather deep.""A young man in his 20s, very muscled, especially for a Blood Elf and a caster. When not fully covered by clothing and in darker surroundings, faintly glowing lines are visible across his body. His voice sounds hard and authoritative."

Good point about voices.
