Simple: if I did it in game, I did it in character. I don't need to be the one to have dealt the killing blow, but I'm not going to hem and haw in false modesty and pretend my character didn't ICly actually do shit s/he damn well did in the game just because the RP Police thinks it's grounds for a Sue warrant. If people don't like that, they can piss off and approach someone else. Then again, I come from the old D&D school of fantasy roleplaying, where there wasn't this blatant sense of Gameplay and Story Segregation, and PCs were MEANT to be larger than life above-average heroes, as opposed to random anonymous schmucks living in the shadows of NPCs.The problem with WoW RP is that you have too many self-appointed RP Cops looking for infractions they can write summons about on the forums/LJ rather than understanding that other people may have different RP philosophies and trying to work with that, or--gasp, trying to discuss it IC--or ignoring it if they can't.This, incidentally, is why I gave up on WoW RP entirely ages ago and just stick to writing fic about my characters and my headcanon.

Your rp sounds completely viable, actually. I'm sorry that some moron decided to take issue with it and cause you to stop rping in-game.The only person I've ever given a serious stink-eye to for their rp (and even then I commented on it to my guildies and let others do the mocking) was a night.elf death knight claiming to be the exiled king of Gilneas, right before Cata dropped.
