I will often do quests regardless for the achievements, even though I'm a RPer on a RP realm; most times I'm not IC when out questing alone, though.There have been times when a quest/chain has resonated though and I ended up writing about it on my server's RP site, rp-haven.com. A friend and I did the Icecrown zone ICly together, but there came a point in the Ebon Blade quests where our characters (a warrior and a priestess couple) just said "oh fel no" to the Death's Head/Scarlet Onslaught chain. We did it later OOCly to complete the zone and see the story (and unlock dailies), but ICly, the characters had quite the reaction to being asked to kill Scarlets and then turn them into ghouls.For Hyjal, my priest went through the zone ICly with her ancient druid mentor, and it was a blast for me and my friend. My aquaphobic paladin and a hunter pal ended up in Vashj'ir together, where focusing on rescuing another friend from the naga's slavery kept her focused enough to finally gain some small control over her fear. I also wrote a story based around a lowbie alt's experiences in the revamped Western Plaguelands, or used the new Harborage quest chain in Swamp of Sorrows for a story for my high level Draenei mage and a bit of her storyline.I don't like making my character out to be the sole hero of major plots, or the one who killed a big bad guy; sometimes they're in the background as part of a nebulous group, or I'm vague with villain names and quest details, reacting more to the general situation and how the character feels and reacts than "I killed this Old God!" There are millions of others playing this game, thousands on servers, hundreds in various RP circles. I like leaving room in what we call our "RP bubbles" for people to socially interact without invalidating each others' RP, but that's just my style; others feel more comfortable inserting themselves more fully into the story of WoW.
