Usually when we talk about getting too attached to a character, we're talking about getting too attached to one's own character. Heck, I'm actually most accustomed to hearing about that kind of thing from other roleplay venues: LARP, tabletop, maybe even PvP MUDs. But WoW roleplay doesn't usually involve character death, so it's not usually an issue. So, if we're talking about getting too attached to a character, what could we possibly mean? We're talking about getting too attached to someone else's character; we mean getting obsessed with an in-game partner or wife, to a point where problems can crop up.
The Drama Mamas passed this letter over to me, since it so greatly involves roleplay. I've obviously altered the names of those involved. Let's roleplay that this was a letter to ... the Roleplay Drama Papa! (Feel free to insert a "Who's your daddy?" joke here.)
