Lol.. On public servers I couldn't even stand the Alliance side. I met some cool people on Horde though.

A long time ago I used to run a private RP server called Vitality WoW. It only reached a memberbase of about 30, but it was still pretty cool. And because I owned it I was able to incorporate a lot of the ideas I'd wanted to, from custom playerhouses, to custom maps, custom scripts, and more. Unfortunately it wasn't active enough to keep going.

Although, there is another private RP server out there that's strictly roleplay and has a pretty decent memberbase (usually around 20 on at a time). Used to play on it but left when I decided to make my own because they were so conservative about new ideas for the server.

Retail WoW's RP has always blown, to be honest. You're better off going with LOTRO's retail RP.

Weird. I only tried the private server once and it didn't work out for me. They had a massive application system in which you basically had to make a huge introduction topic to administration team to get accepted or denied, covering the subjects like, your roleplay experience, character profile, and whatnot. You actually had to plan everything out, every character must have had a story behind and all characteristics filled in.

But they had activity issues for me I didn't quite like so it ended up with me quitting. RP on Retail sucks a little bit yet the communities get formed, they don't last long.

Can anyone suggest me a pretty solid Role-play private server then? It sounds quite interesting and unique.

If you have some money to blow on World of Warcraft, the Emerald Dream server has some pretty solid roleplay Alliance-side.

I actually used to play on a retail server a few years ago when there were no expansions out, but when the three months subscription that came with the game expired I decided to give up on it, mainly because I considered it a waste of money back then.

I will, however, consider the idea nonetheless.

Not really into WoW RP, I don't really like the RP that's on there.

But I strongly recommend Argent Dawn EU alliance (Retail) if you'd like to try it out. Stormwind is very populated and there's a lot of great roleplay going on, if you like the theme which is something like fantasy/medieval.

Role-play in World of Warcraft is impossible. Once you even attempt it people will frown down at you unless you're in a private role-play server.

I don't know what you're talking about; you're completely wrong.

I have one actually, will be taking more soon. This is a screen shot of the Kor'Kron's arrival in the Undercity.

By all means add me in game and I'll take you along to a hub. My name is Dakol on Earthen Ring, an orc warrior on Horde. The standard of RP is excellent in my opinion and a great place to learn. Orcish RP in itself is by far the most interesting and enjoyable. They basicly adopt spartan culture. For example on entry to the Kor'Kron, a RP guild, you'll have to duel one of the Warbound, a high ranking officer who will test your metal.

Right now my guild are going through a rather long event. We're currently in the Undercity making preperations to march on the Worgen this weekend. So this would be a good week to get involved if you're interested in learning and watching/taking part in a RP battle between the two factions.

As for the wedding, such things normally take place on Alliance. A lot of players RP in Stormwind. There's a guard, council, citizen base and so on. Where as on Horde, it's more gritty. More tavern brawls, a greater back story to characters in my opinion, there's more honour in day to day interaction.

Rico_Mancin wrote:Too many dickheads in my opinion. Plus, I really can't be assed to re-roll and re-level to 85 on a realm that I probably won't have any interest in later on.

However, I really have been interested in the RP aspect of wow.


The great thing about a RP realm is that it supports everything that a normal realm does, with great activity in PVP and Raids as well as offering RP. There's players who are completly OOC as any other realm, except you have another style of gameplay open to you.

As far as I've seen, the guys and girls I've RP'd with are great people OOC.

As I said before, if you're interested in trying it out one evening, add my character on ER, Horde.

Your from ER right? I was in the SWCG on Alliance from 06 - 11

When I took a break from LS:RP I went over to WoW for RP/OOC entertainment. It was fun at first, a friend and I started a guild ( Moon Guard server ). The thing about it is, people frown at rp on the game and most people show no respect to Moon Guard cause there is one place in the entire map where about 30 rpers decide to make a strip club or w/e. But, anyway... we made a guild called Order of Boralus which name changed to The Opulent Principality. We stood for an island out on the sea that would support the Alliance from time to time. It is very easy to bring great RP to the server since they aren't as experienced as the rpers on LS:RP. The guild was very successful, but since the staff doesn't have admins to watch over RP like LS:RP many Metagamed and powergamed. But, anyway here are a few screens from our experience.

Back on retail, my guild on Proudmoore US server used to roleplay on specific days just for fun, maybe before or after one of our raids. It's a PvE server, but roleplaying is somewhat big on that server. Was fun indeed.
