I don't know about the alliance accepting the Gileans-turned-Worgen... I mean, the current inhabitants of Lordaeron were once human, too.Or maybe Worgen isn't a race, maybe it's a class!

why was this guy rated down? He wasn't being negative, just stating an opinion. And even though I don't agree, its an apt comparison between the worgen and the forsaken.Also, I hadn't heard anyone propose the worgen as a class, and I think this is a pretty neat idea. The main argument against this is that druids are already the resident shapeshifters, and we would need different horde and alliance worgen forms to keep with blizzard's enemy identification rule. But the result would be pretty similar to the Diablo II druid.

The comparison between Worgen and Forsaken is a fair one, but I think the Alliance have already back-pedalled on that one.They refused to take in the Forsaken - fallen members of their own race, who once fought alongside them, but were killed, taken into the Lich King's armies, before regaining their free will and escaping his control.But now they're taking in Death Knights - fallen members of their own race, who once... uh... fought along side them, but were... yeah... killed and taken into the Lich King's armies, before... um... regaining their... free will and escaping his control...*cough*Uh, yeah.I know, I know, there are differences and you can justify it if you want, but my point is that if you can justify accepting Death Knights into your ranks, then you can probably justify accepting Worgen too.

Jeremial....There is a reason the Alliance doesn't "accept" the Forsaken.The Forsaken initiated hostilities.They wiped out a major portion of the remaining Lordaeranian army, attacked Dalaran and are even today, continuing to attack the remain human settlements of Lordaeron and Strom.EJL

Kyrt,Yes - I know the circumstances were different. That's what my little 'I know there are differences' disclaimer was for.I just stated it as I did because I still find it a bit weird that the Alliance were prepared to give Death Knights the benefit of the doubt.Anyway, that's not the point. I was simply trying to refute Narlic's suggestion that the Alliance would not accept the Worgen because they did not accept the Forsaken, by pointing out that they have been relatively happy (loosely speaking) to accept the Death Knights.All are fallen members of the Alliance's own race(s), if we're going by the Human-Worgen-of-Gilneas assumption, so it would be doubly hypocritical for the Alliance to turn up their noses at Worgen with Death Knights in their ranks.
