Sorry, no high elves. You can't really roleplay as one of them, since they would be part of the Alliance rather than the Horde. Really I know it's tempting, but you must just resist. I should write a whole article about this someday, but it's really true that while the visual element of a game like this does add lots of fun to our roleplaying, it really takes a way from the experience if you try to pretend that what you're roleplaying is something other than what everyone sees. If the whole game were in our imagination anyways, it wouldn't matter, but it's right there in front of us, so your character saying "I'm a high elf" is kind of like me saying, "I'm the Queen of England!"

I've actually wondered about this- are there degrees of indulgence in the fel magic? Could a Sin'dorei cut back by trancing like the Quel'dorei do, instead of drawing to feed, with the intention of passing as a High Elf? Is there any scenario where, from a distance or with goggles, they might be able to pass for each other? I mean this more for a backstory or lore perspective instead of actively role playing one. Also, consumption of fel magic and the eye color are linked, correct? So a full blown addict, or someone who had just performed Arcane Torrent, would have brightly glowing, fel green eyes, whereas a more casual user might have blue-green eyes? I'm just curious.One more person with white, red, or golden eyes in SMC... :grumble:

Hmm...I'll think about your question as I write next week's article Eddy. I think, for now, that the answers to all your questions is "yes," but it's a discussion we really should save for the blood elf post anyway.
