GREAT articles.I don't even play on a RP server... and I don't find a whole lot of new info here. But the way you sum these things up is great. I think the story in WoW is all to often crucially underestimated by the playerbase.When you finish the ten races, I'd really like it if you'd cover:- The essentially RPable races like Ogres and Furbold and Arrokoa (thanks to costume buffs). Someone with the TCG trinket, for instance, could essentially RP being an Ogre all the time.- The class lore. Paladins, shamans, druids, rogues and locks are particularly rich in this department but I think even a class like the warrior has some considerations to make. (Even warriors have a pretty rich history in WoW and are more than just brutes, bullies and tanks. We have our secret fight club off the coast of the Barrens, webs of blacksmiths backing us up and several lore figures as representatives, including King Varien Wrynn and Alexandros Mograine the Ashbringer; yes, the Highlord of the Scarlet Crusade and wielder of its most sacred artifact was a warrior, not a paladin.)Anyway, nice work.

Thanks! I'm thinking of covering class issues after I'm done with the 10 races. I could write about things like paladins and religion, as an example, particularly the different views that humans, draenei, and blood elves all have on the "Holy Light" and how that might influence your paladin character; or about how warlocks ought to be treated with their demons hanging out in the main cities; or even about how free warriors are to choose whatever sort of background they please, from hardened combat veteran to rugged explorer.
