Also worth noting - don't just base your character off something another person has already created, and shared on his/her RPing blog.My closest encounter to a RP realm was Lightninghoof-US, an RPPVP realm. And as I strolled thorugh Orgrimmar, I came to the conclusion that...1.) I was the only Orc non-NPC in Orgrimmar2.) Guilds had suspiciously chosen names like "The Knights of Blood" and "Throne of the Sin'Dorei"3.) If your style of Roleplaying is not to another player's liking, he/she tends to avoid Roleplaying with you (just for chuckles I decided to roleplay as an orc warrior with a slight learning disability - your typical tough n' dumb juggernaut. It was met with pretty critical results)

you do realize that no matter how much you try your int is still in the 100s at level 80 right?:P

@Blue - That's where the roleplay comes in. It's always limited by the player and how they act. Your character could be a genius that can cure cancer, which means nothing if the player is dumb as rocks and has no imagination.Also, on what part of the scale is an Intelligence score of 100? At what point does it cap? What does an Intelligence of 100 mean? I know in the d20 system a score of 18 is exceedingly rare since that is the very top. That is a score you should only see on gods. 17 is the peak of human ability to train into. General rule of thumb.

@ThorieOn point #3, my friend and I had a similar experience. The first and only time I got him to go with me to an RP server, we created blood elf characters and decided tehy should be evil. The kind of almost-cliche "all of you are just my pawns!" kind of bad guys, and we played it up even in our single-digit levels. we were invited to a RP guild early on and when we went off on a "we're so evil" rant, they were quite vocal that the horde aren't evil. We replied, "No, but we ARE!" ... we were promptly kicked from the guild about five minutes after joining.

Thorie,If I were to ever roll on an RP server, I'd totally want to meet people like you. (Bonus points if you occasionally stood in the fire for RP purposes /y-ing, "WHY MY FEET HURT???")
