For player storylines the best Worgen option, is the Gilneas human population getting cursed with the worgen curse. Then being saved by Elune but being stuck in Worgen form but with a sole, the reason I say this is because the Gilneas did not help out in the later wars so they are likely look out as cowards. I deserve to be called cowards for not helping the world in there time of need. So look at it this way: You were once human, but a coward and didn’t want to fight the great evils destroying your world. You hid behind your wall; hoping everything would just work out. But an evil curse entered your lands. Scared you did nothing as countless fellow citizen died around you. But you began to realize that something wasn’t right, your friends were all dying around you, but all you had was weird horrid dreams. One day some Night Elves Druids entered your realm. The offered hope, but at a price, the price was your remaining human body, but you would regain your sole. So from that time forward you lived your life as Worgen, being constantly reminded of the price the world suffered because of your cowardice and complacency of the world around you.Can tell me that not a good back story for any player character.

The Gilneans were not Cowards and were/are not Hiding behind the wall. The reason the wall was built was to cut off the other Human Nations who Greymane believed to be Leeching their resources and Laying their problems upon Gilneas. Also He believed the Gilnean army could handle any threat.Not to mention the fact that Gilneas had always been regarded as one of the strongest Human nations.

Lord Genn Greymane only sparingly helped out in the second war and didn’t send any help during the third war. Even though a small brigade of Gilneas volunteered to do so during the third war. Genn Greymane was strong enough to help out during the wars more than he did, but felt he was strong enough to handle the treat by himself. But something happened to the Gilneans that they were not strong enough to stop. So either way if I was a citizen of this former strong state. Which did little to help during he the last major war. I would consider the curse was result of either cowardice or self-absorption, either way the story plot of the character fits.

Is Being an Isolationist nation something to be cursed for? Heh; looks like you better give the heads up to Pandaria.I still see no Cowardice either way that you mentioned; Genn sent an token troop Force to fight in the second force that was Equal in size to that of Alterac's. And how would the Gilneans even know about what was happening in the Third War? Lordaeron didn't even know until it was too late. Not to mention the fact that Stromgarde, Stormwind, and Kul Tiras didnt send any aid as far as we know. The 'Gilneas Brigade' in WC3 Is normally regarded as a group of Dissidents who were convinced to flee to Kalimdor with Jania. Being an Isolationist nation is hardly something to be cursed for?"But something happened to the Gilneans that they were not strong enough to stop. "Once again; no lore points to this at all, the closest thing that does is Brann hearing whispers of a Naga Invasion striking Gilneas. No mention of Worgen at all. I Play one of my characters as one of the Survivors of the Gilneas Brigade and i do encourage More Gilnean RP'ers. Or Kul Tirians, Stromgardians, Alteracians, I get so sick of Boring Stormwind/Lordaeron backstories :P.

"Is Being an Isolationist nation something to be cursed for? Heh; looks like you better give the heads up to Pandaria."Pandaria and Pandarens are a joke that went too far. Putting them in WoW would be its ultimate jump-the-shark moment.
