[H] Looking for General RP Partners & Specific Type of IC Instructor.
Hello there!

First off, my character(s) make their home on H-MG but with CRZ, Battletags, IM and email that hardly seems to matter anymore. My timezone is CST and I'm usually available in the evenings, however I would be more available for rp via email during the day.
Most of my characters are tauren, but I do have one pandaren. I'm open to roleplaying any of them, but right now I'm looking to focus on my Tauren priest.

What I'm looking for specifically right now and my general information...Collapse )

[H] Looking for RP partners
moist > edward
I’ve called WrA server home for awhile now but I still know very few people in the RP community. It would be wonderful to meet players with whom I can develop storylines and characters, or even just RP with causally.

As of right now I have two characters I’m interested in RPing. While I’m detailing their personalities and possible story ideas below, I’m flexible and am open to all sorts of plots and relationship types, so don’t be afraid to contact me if you want to RP something that deviates from the ideas listed here.

While I'm not someone who takes three chat buffers to describe my character sitting down, I tend to writer longer RP posts. I also type slower than most. If this bothers you then you probably won't enjoy RPing with me.

My time zone is EST, and I’m normally on during the evening. My BattleID is HiroEB#1616, if you wish to contact me in-game.

Player Intro

I've played World of Warcraft since 2006 - about May I believe.  My account has never been anything but active even during times of busy-ness where I didn't play much.  I was not a gamer - but the idea of living in a fantasy world was just way too appealing.  My husband and I love to play together.  He enjoys tanking, and I enjoy healing.  I also enjoy DPS particularly caster DPS.  But most of all I love Roleplay!  In fact I love it so much I have characters only on RP servers, and I've learned all the "rules", as well as some of the faux pas by accidentally falling into them.  I've even run a Hordeside RP guild for a few years.

I have been away from the game for a little while due to some medical issues that arose for me in the past year, but I keep my addons up to date, and my game patches downloaded, and now that DH is done with his computer engineering degree - I am excited to play once more, and most excited to RP again.  If you would like to connect with me in game, or via a messenger of any kind - just send me an LJ message and I'll give you the info you request.  I am willing to RP in many forms - forum RP, messenger RP, in-game RP, story RP.. and yes I am totally good with walk up RP providing it's not trolling (which I seem to get a lot).

I play predominantly blood elves and mostly on Moon Guard, and Wyrmrest Accord.  I do have some Alliance characters on both of those servers as well.  I have some really old Alliance toons on Feathermoon (my first server).  I love fantasy stories - reading and writing them, and tend to really really enjoy the storyline of the world of Azeroth.  I tend to RP within the bounds of the lore - but if approached with something outside the lore I will interact so long as I'm not on one of my characters that is more strictly storylined.  Just let me know if you're interested!

I plan on playing a bit here and there between Christmas and New Years, but starting in 2013 - WoW will once again become a favorite hobby of mine. :)

Mod post: Welcome!
Forsaken woman
Hi everyone! I am your friendly mod, nightfallpriest. I created this community because I felt there was a need for such a resource here on LJ. Like many others, I had a desire to get more involved on my roleplaying realm but wasn't sure where to start. I thought this would be a great way for World of Warcraft players to meet others who are interested in roleplaying, find a guild, get involved in storylines, and even find partners to write with out-of-game.

A few things about me: I'm a college student in my early twenties. I've been playing WoW for nearly three years now, but I've been roleplaying for about ten. I love to write and I dabble in modern fiction, fantasy, urban fantasy, and occasionally erotica for the fun of it. As for my faction, I play and enjoy both, but my first love is the Horde. My username might suggest that I have an affinity for the priest class, and that would be largely true. ;)

Since this community is still in its infancy, I'd like to start with a more "laissez-faire" approach rather than with a bunch of super strict rules. I want to encourage people to post here and make them feel welcome. Obviously there are a few rules, which are outlined in the community's profile, and I will make more if the need arises. But for now, welcome to rp_wow! Enjoy your stay, and if you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to PM me.
