    Mages are balanced. It's just that they aren't balanced for Azeroth.

    Haven't seen any serious RP on these forums. I could be wrong tho.

    Not necessarily, I Rp frequently on this forum. To get started all you need is a character. This character will be one of the races from Azeroth and a BIO is their tale how they came to be the individual you role-play as today. You would assume this person's persona as you engage in a storyline called an "RP" with other role-players who would interact with you and other characters, both enemies and friends.

    Once you had a set character, story and the lore around him, her or it is sound then you're ready to join other people in a role-play. We have beginning role-plays such as the Salty Sailor Tavern which is designed to get new role-players into the swing of things. But if you feel you're ready I have an upcoming RP called War of the Greys: Aegwynn's Vengeance. This is the fourth part of a series that I've made over the last year. We have a group of regulars that would be more than happy to guide you through the story and help you have a more enjoyable experience.

    So, BIO then RP, basically that's it. If you need to research we'd recommend Wowpedia, and feel free to ask questions. If however you decide to switch forums then you'll meet a similar process and that's up to you. An important part of choosing a forum is community and you should decide what group you'd like to be involved with. (Of course you can be a member of multiple.)

    I wish you luck, for a BIO template check out our stickies or my character page below. The stickies go in depth about the template, my character page would be for examples of successful BIOs. Good luck and I look forward to RPing with you!

    First of all one should direct you towards the Sticky thread for Character Creation we made. It answers most basic questions about the how tos.

    Character Creation

    On Topic reading stories, we were about to collect the finished RP's in a dedicated thread, but that effort sadly got forgotten. Maybe we can pick that up someday. It's possible.

    Yea I would highly recommend looking through the stickies in the rp forums here. Like yourself I am rather new to the whole idea of role-playing and got a really good start just reading through the stickies. They give you a really good template on how to write your character bio and links to sites (that most if not all) rpers on the forums here use that give you very helpful info to write it up.. make sure you really give it a good read through though (specifically the unofficial timeline on wowpedia).


    Best of luck with your character bio! Can't wait to give it a read through!!!
