I've wondered about these role-playing servers. I'm kind of confused by the whole thing. Is it more of WoW mixed with some pretending and make believe or what?

Well, kinda, yeah. :) On RP servers, people try to stay "in character". That means they speak as their character would. No references to current events such as television shows, modern technology, etc. Sometimes you want to talk about such things, of course, so you speak "out of character" (ooc).The level of role-playing you'll find on RP servers varies wildly in relation to location, which side you're playing on, and which server. Some servers are more serious about RP than others. On some servers you'll find people RPing all over the place; on others you really need to seek it out.Hope that helped explain at least a little!
It's a regular server, but the players' characters act and behave as if they were actually within the world of Warcraft. You know, playing a role. I guess that does involve some pretending and make-believe, but roleplaying tends to do that even in other games and scenarios, more or less rigid.

You'll find a lot of serious roleplayers on the server Maelstrom-US on both factions, possibly more so on Alliance. Most of which are the "srs bssness" roleplayers, and have no problem with sending hatemail and evil hissing whispers. I was on that server alliance side for about three months, though it is still a RP-PVP server (and yes I do know that It doesn't stand for really powerful player versus player). If Rp'ing is your thing I suggest the lively community of Maelstrom. I met some great people while being there and made year+ long friends that I still talk to even though I have been gone from that server a LONG time.But I must say Azgalor-US FTW! But I'm rerolling a horde shammy as a test on Silvermoon. Any suggestions on a good Horde side US server that might be in use of a shammy? Haha wow where'd the hate filled, puss spewing, critic Saiforune GO!! ZOMG! I must stop the madness!!Erm...Adam Holisky still sucks, a few peple get on my nerves with new posters like Zach Yonsen( Spelling? If so sorry I'll fix it soon) blah blah blah....*edit* Jennies Lees has been doing amazing since the time I exploded! ^.^ Yaya! Way to keep up the awesome work and keep writing! I hope that lets y'all know i'm still here. :D( Pst! Zach you're next on my list. Just wait, your judgement day is coming so be very careful. You could ask your co-workers what got me fired up and hopefully you can avoid that stressful situation that will make you judge your writing ability and your ideas on what you should write about.)

Hmm. Thanks for filling me in. Sounds like too much for me to keep up with, though.
