Feb 5th 2009 11:55PM I pronounce it as you would pronounce "desolate", only with an "s" sound. I'm guessing that based on the environment in that region - quite depressing.

You could always go with the straightforward Japanese pronunciation Mo-ri-hi-me and just tell people it means "Princess Forest" or "Forest Princess"? :)
On my realm (Terokkar) I recently saw a shout for a guild named something like "Raiders of" or "Legions of"... "Ogrimar" (or perhaps it was "Ogrimmar") ... regardless, it was ridiculous.

Similar with my own situation. In another MMO I used the name "gedatsu" (ge-da-tsu, three syllables, Japanese) - but invariably was called "Ged" and, by some members "Jed" (as in Clampett).
So I went with Hisan for WoW and still ended up being called "His" or "Hi"... luckily, I now play with some of my friends from the other MMO and despite my name being "Hisan", I get called "G".
Feb 1st 2009 5:11PM When I first started I had no "choice", per se, as the person for whom I had chosen to play was Horde. That being said, I really, really have enjoyed playing as a Horde. I did roll an Alliance toon at one point in time, but found myself returning to my Horde toon.
Now, why did I choose undead? It wasn't really an aesthetic choice - it wasn't really a practical reason (stats, racials, etc). The choice of an undead coincided with my choice of warlock - I liked the lore, I like the situation both are in. Having come straight from Final Fantasy XI I was naturally drawn to the wielders of darker magic. The idea of summoning demons and causing agony to others fit in perfectly with what I see as a standard undead perspective: revenge and ambivalence to violence. People complain about the poison quests or the plague quests, but ultimately it fits in perfectly with what's been said before. The Forsaken are undead, as are The Scourge. This, however, isn't something on which to place hope - it adds sentience to a group that searches for revenge and that has a skewed view of morality and ethics. These are things I cannot really explore in real life and so my toon and the quests I accomplish provide that escape.
