    On Rhadegar:

    1. Because I can wear plate, which is really good considering what the protector uniform is.

    2. Because I think it suits an old man like himself to have a bit of weird, perhaps old-fashioned sense of humor and to suffer often lack of confidence.

    3. Because I AM WARRIOR! Three reasons to be one.

    Eyre:

    1. OOC reasons. Class does not count for me RPwise, but I wanted a shot at healing. In retrospect a rogue would benefit Eyre more.

    2. Contrasts, contrasts, contrasts.

    3. Because I drew him myself. He looks younger than in the pencil version due to lack of gritty lines. Damn.

    1. Why did you choose the class of your guild character to be that one?

    Zackariah was actually a recycled character. I created a warlock at one point, naming him Zackariah because I thought - quite frankly - that it fit the theme of a warlock. The reason for this is that I was playing Dungeon Keeper II, and in this game there is a unit called the Dark Angel. By building structures in a special way, you could get a sort of hero-unit for the Dark Angel, named Zachariah.
    I choose long names for my characters if I don't want people to often add me to the friend list, and this was the case for Zack as well. When RPed, he was mostly a random cultist character for a short while, repeatedly coming back with a new personality whenever people wanted a new badguy for some event. Then, when Cedric joined the church, I followed him and rerolled him with a set personality and backstory.

    2. Why did you choose the personality of your guild character to be that one?

    Zack's personality was tailored to make him a kind of mentor character. He was made to be a sort of actual, yet still useful priest. A support-character in a sense, there to help other people grow and develop.

    3. Why did you choose the forum avatar that you use in the forum to be that one?

    This is actually taken from an old movie. I tried to draw Zack myself a few times to no success. But damn it, that is totally how he'd look if you met him down in the clergywards.

    1. Why did you choose the class of your guild character to be that one?

    As a Roleplayer,I like the diversity of gear you can wear, and currently one of the few classes capable of wearing pretty much everything, added with dual wielding and at the like. Plate and mail would be for protector duty even if I didn't plan for her to become a protector at start, then again now that I think it, paladin would have been a good choice for all this too, not that classes effect roleplay at all, atleast not for me.

    2. Why did you choose the personality of your guild character to be that one?

    Becaaaause I didn't. Sindri decided her personality, I am just trying to follow as best as I can, which can be a bother at times. I don't get this woman :'D. And truthfully I never did choose Sindri's current personality, it developped from a shy, insecure woman to.. something. Sindri was rather blank template when made, and made huge (to me) progress in coming this way.

    BECAUSE FOR SOME REASON ITS APPARENTLY RELEVANT! D=

    Post  Ewyllyn on Mon Jan 24, 2011 7:45 pm

    1. Why did you choose the class of your guild character to be that one?

    Ewyllyn was created a long time ago, when I got fed up with the Normal realm of Draenor. I wanted RP to enrich my game experience, and thought it would be fun to RP a priestess, even if I at that time had no clue as to the lore, much less to what it actually was the religion that humans adhered to in WoW. I did, however, at some point lose interest and then started a mage on the Moonglade RP realm, only to later move to the Steamwheedle Cartel RP realm. So, when I needed new pastures I suddenly recalled my priestess Ewyllyn, dusted her off and started RPing her again.


    2. Why did you choose the personality of your guild character to be that one?

    Once I had dusted her off, I could recall how much interesting RP I had with my SWC paladin who turned blind, and also remembered how often that said paladin had at times wished she were a priestess instead. Therefore I decided I'd somewhat copy her initial behaviourisms, attitude and conduct and further develop that, albeit with her being blind from almost the start of her reactivation. I immediately got positive response and could through character interaction develop her further till her current personality as of this date.


    3. Why did you choose the forum avatar that you use in the forum to be that one?

    My avatar is a bit of a painting that depicts a saint called Heilige Elisabeth von Thüringen (or Princess Saint Elizabeth of Hungary, information available on wikipedia.org), whom I stumbled upon when looking for inspiration in regards to my (at that time) recently blinded paladin. I therefore shamelessly read and took inspiration from St. Elizabeth's deeds in her short life, and implemented the supposed humility, generousity and compassion of the same into my character. The same was with Ewyllyn once I started developing her, and I have once on the ER.eu forum used the same avatar. I admit that I could've just used the same one that I use currently there, which is from Hugo Simberg's painting of "The Wounded Angel", but decided against it, as I thought it best to have some other avatar for the sake of variation.

    Eyre technically does not have a beard (a stubble at times if anything). Cutting it gives a very retarded-looking model.

    Post  Eihrissa on Tue Jan 25, 2011 1:44 pm

    1. Why did you choose the class of your guild character to be that one?

    This one hardly mattered to me upon creating Eihrissa, but it happened to be the highest level character I had on this realm, and hence the most practical to rename. Also, a priestess reflects her mirthful demeanour, albeit only to a degree.

    2. Why did you choose the personality of your guild character to be that one?

    I wanted to create something different than what I already had (a war veteran and Captain, coupled with a rebellious nobledaughter) and seeing as they were both Lordaeronians, the southern theme of Eihrissa was something that I had clear before me from the start.

    RP rooted at least partially in grue and difficulty tends to make an appearance no matter what I do, and thus it became a part of Eihrissa as well. I contrasted it with my previous character - the nobledaughter who tried to escape her past and start anew - and the result was Eihrissa, a social outcast and émigré, who managed to claw herself from neophyte to ordinance at a rural parish, where she steadfastly faced hatred and revile due to her origins.

    3. Why did you choose the forum avatar that you use in the forum to be that one?

    I don't have any other icon... yet. I am an artist, but I haven't done a finished portrait in about a year. Will arse myself to do it soon enough!

    Fun fact: the icon is not even of Eihrissa!

    1. Why did you choose the class of your guild character to be that one?
    Lauf was a warlock, so of course I rolled her as a warlock! Though I don't really care which class Lauf is nowadays, If I had to make her again it would probably be mage or warlock.

    2. Why did you choose the personality of your guild character to be that one?
    I guess I made Lauf a 'tard all that time ago because being evil was mostly crappy and I've always loved stupid, naïve people! - Though most of the people on the server make their characters like that without wanting too ._.

    3. Why did you choose the forum avatar that you use in the forum to be that one?
    I chose it, beacuse I thought that was the first picture I found that came close to what I imagine Lauf to actually look like!

    I imagined Lauf the exact same way, actually :O You should paint her hair black in my opinion, though, like the in-game avatar. Or brownish as it was actually.

    She actually has strawberry-ish blonde hair though, it's just dyed at the moment!
    And she would have it tied up but she fails at doing it, I usualy use the rushed hairstyle when she's got it short, because it looks like something she'd spent time on and still failed xD

    1. Why did you choose the class of your guild character to be that one?
    Well, when Merone (my first Earthen Ring character) worked at the Cathedrsl, she was a Shaman but always wanted to be a Priestess. I decided to make Zeeri as a Priestess because both I and Merone wanted to be a Priestess, and needed an excuse as to why Merone wanted to be one. That was because Zeeri (her mother) is a Priestess.

    2. Why did you choose the personality of your guild character to be that one?
    Well, Zeeri was terrified upon hearing that Merone and her Paladin sister Meroil died, thusly she forced herself to fear all living other than her own race. She met Iko and Eyre, trusted them, forced herself to trust her patients. And she typically developed from there. Zeeri's a proud and confident Priestess. :)

    3. Why did you choose the forum avatar that you use in the forum to be that one?
    Because I drew her myself! (Deja vu) I wanted something original and things, so I drawn Zeeri as she looks IC with her huge bushbaby eyes and cuteness! <3
    ZO = Zeeri Olixen!

    Edit; OMG MY AVATAR IS CREEPY.I suck at drawing.

    Edit 2: It's nice now. The cute Draenei in her little pink top :3

    ...you mentioned that you thought your avatar sucked in game too. Now I see it is because you want us all to go "No way, it's the imbaest avatar ever". You just want our applauds.

    ...and I agree, it is awesome. It is... also... very... Erm... No way to describe it.

    1. Why did you choose the class of your guild character to be that one?
    Vethen was created several months before I even applied for the guild in the July of 2010. Vethen original started, when actually beginning RP'ing with him, in the Guild called "The Draen'Amir". T'was a good guild, and allowed Vethen to add some more interesting background then I already had planned. Class wise...we all love fury...how can you not love fury warriors?

    2. Why did you choose the personality of your guild character to be that one?
    Er...in truth, I didn't choose myself. It was after a bomb went off in the Infirmary, and where I finally plucked up the courage to get involved, that I actually got noticed by some of the community. I still remember to this day, I had a two-whisper response from Telka applauding me for RP'ing a Draenei properly, and I even had Maryanne suggest I join the Silver Hand! But alas, she then told me, after realising Vethen was not a paladin, and after some discussion, that I should try to apply for the Church. Alas, I did, was successful, and so I stand here until the day he dies.

    3. Why did you choose the forum avatar that you use in the forum to be that one?
    Because until I can be arsed to draw one myself, it is being that one. Alas, I still want that damned hammer...

    1. Why did you choose the class of your guild character to be that one?
    I rolled a priest because I didn't have that character yet. It's just that she was a Blood Elf for a long time before turning into Soophy. I changed her into a Gnome because I wanted to join the church as a pupil. One who knew absolutely nothing about the Light yet still wanted to be part of it. I have stuff in store for her development over the next year, after that, I'll see what might happen.

    2. Why did you choose the personality of your guild character to be that one?

    So far, most of my characters have had strong personalities. A strong will, a tough exterior when needed. I haven't RP'd a pushover little crybaby in ages, and haven't done so in WoW at all. Due to the fact that I mostly can't stand those people who RP that kind of character wrong and demand attention with their wimpyness. I always tried to avoid that at all time. However this seemed fitting. After Shimizu, Soolie, and Claera, it was time to have a different kind of Gnome. An overweight little insecure person.

    1. Why did you choose the class of your guild character to be that one?

    Actually, it could've really been anyone. Only problem was I couldn't fit into a priest's mindset every time I've tried, and those characters I do have - like Tiamos or Enyon - are more free-spirited than anyone else, so being a volunteer seemed more appropriate for them both (though that might change for Enyon). And I can hardly have a DK, can I?

    Beyond that, I had a character over on Kilrogg Horde-side, Gordrake, that had hit 80 and was basically gathering dust. With the changes in Cataclysm, I knew I didn't want to go back to Horde, even less so in RP cases, but I didn't want an 80 to go to waste, so I paid for a transfer of server and faction and came to the decision that I should have someone built for the Cathedral. So it just happened to be a Warrior through that.

    2. Why did you choose the personality of your guild character to be that one?

    The name, Skar Fenoris, is actually an old name from an RPing community forum I was a part of in the past - The Light Within, A FF RP forum - and so I kept some of his ideals and mannerisms through that transition, but made him more wiser from experience in this incarnation. He started off, personality-wise, as a rough-around-the-edges, battle-hardened blade that only fought and thought for himself. Having come across a few close moments in his time since then, he's learned, developed and experienced a lot more of life and so he's opened his heart more to others. He still has memories, though, and he'll often utter something if such a memory is provoked.

    3. Why did you choose the forum avatar that you use in the forum to be that one?

    Er...I don't have one at the time of writing, but I will be looking to make an Enyon/Fenoris combo shot. In fact, Enyon is a lot like how I originally saw Fenoris, so there's an interesting character connection between the two in that respect.

    1. Why did you choose the class of your guild character to be that one?
    I like Paladins, I like the fact that I can quest on my own and quickly, that I can deal damage in dungeons and in pvp when I'm not rping and the fact that I have played a Draenei Paladin before. I enjoyed it a lot and thought I would give rp another go (that and I was asked to create my char :p)

    2. Why did you choose the personality of your guild character to be that one?
    She's quiet and respectful, waiting until others are done talking, even if this means that she is ignored for a long time. Why? Because she respects her elders. Not only in terms of age (because only Vethen is older than her I believe) but also in terms of status. But once you get to know her, she has a carefree, fun side. She will flirt and joke around and she will dance and sing songs. Why? Because rp shouldn't be serious all the time and it should be fun and people should enjoy their time online. I think some guilds and some people forget this. She will never be rude to anyone, unless they are rude to her first or say something about her being a Draenei. When it is needed, she will be serious, but most of the time, she will be full of laughter.

    3. Why did you choose the forum avatar that you use in the forum to be that one?
    I had a friend draw it for me...but she looks more like my former Pally I think...but anyway, it will do until I can edit a screenshot of her Smile
