Roleplaying on the Server
While at first it may seem that little roleplay occurs, it only takes a short while for a good roleplayer to get involved in a universally connected community. Roleplay on Wyrmrest Accord is not only prevalent, but immersive and involving (when you find it). There are two distinct factional cultures (as most servers have) with the respective amounts of roleplay measuring about the same, but expressed through different mediums. Both factions schedule regular roleplay events, and the server could always use more additions to the roleplaying community. This is owed to the mass exodus of roleplayers from RPPvP servers and a good number from the other roleplaying realms. From the beginning there was a great interest in fostering an active and connected roleplaying community on the server.
Alliance side has a great deal of public roleplaying, especially in Stormwind city. While some of its denizens are a smidgen lax in their application of the lore, it is nevertheless conducive to a good time. Joining a guild typically increases the quality of storylines one can participate in.
Horde side is slightly more clannish, your best bet here is to find a good guild, apply, and join in on the fun. There is great variety to choose from, and while you have to root out the guild that is right for you, someone is always recruiting. There is a great deal of public roleplaying in Silvermoon and Dalaran.
The Covenant of Wyrmrest Accord
Posted by Huatar on the Wyrmrest Accord Server Forums:
The credit for this goes to a very old roleplayer of Kirin Tor, Sesobael the High Proctor of the Poor Sages of Lordaeron, I hope what he has wrote affects Wyrmrest Accord in good ways in this present and it's future. The link to the original covenant will be at the bottom.
So now I make to you this covenant, and if you agree, you can join in.
I will treat my fellow World of Warcraft players respectfully on an Out-of-Character level even when they don't seem to deserve it. I don't know what sort of day they've had.
I will not respond to immaturity with further immaturity.
I will acknowledge and respect the roleplaying choices of other people, even if I don't understand them. This includes the choice not to roleplay at all. I do reserve the right to respond in-character how my character would normally react, even if that would not be positively, but I will bear no animosity to the player of the other character.
I will offer friendly advice and criticism, but back off if it is not wanted. You just have to tell me to do so.
I will listen to offered advice and consider it. I can't promise to follow it, but I won't dismiss it out-of-hand.
I will name all of my characters appropriately and according to RP realm naming conventions.
I will not use leetspeak, excessive abbreviations, "lol" or the like while in-character, as they could be damaging to other people's roleplaying mood.
I will try not to hold a grudge about loot or PvP. It's only a game. The character on the screen is not me, it's just a video avatar associated with a long string of semi-personalized numbers.
I will not go to another realm's forum and complain about their behavior on the Battlegrounds. I'd like to show some dignity and class so perhaps players from those realms will start treating us the same way.
If I am having a problem that I can't resolve myself, I will ask for help. There is no shame in asking for assistance, and a fresh perspective might be just what is needed.
I will play World of Warcraft to have fun. If I stop having fun, I will stop playing. If it becomes inconvenient to play due to real-life circumstances, I will stop playing. It doesn't necessarally mean that the other players on Wyrmchrest Accord have done anything wrong. No, you can't have my stuff, I might come back someday. Seriously. Sheesh.
I will respect the time and decisions of the game masters, designers, forum moderators, public relations representatives, and other employees of Blizzard, even if I don't agree with them. These people put a lot of time and effort into making our gaming experience worthwhile for everyone, and are just trying to do their job within the constraints given to them by the company, its parent's company, and the law of the land. If I have an issue which needs to be regarded, I will go through the proper channels.
I reserve the right to add or remove aspects of this covenant, and to respect the decisions of others with regards to the covenant. It must be, and is, a self-regulating code of honor. I will not look down on others for not ascribing to the covenant.
I will encourage roleplay on the forums by bumping, reading, responding to it with positive and helpful attention. (Credit goes to Esis)
I will go to as many events, run by as many people, as possible. I will invite as many people as I can.(Credit goes to Esis)
I will not force fellow roleplayers to discard or otherwise destroy their preferred character's development through IC death of their character without the player's consent, nor will I disrupt the community's stability or diversity by forcing the IC destruction or disbandment of a guild that is not my own.
Collected players of Wyrmrest Accord, thank you for your time. Sincerely,
The player of Sesobael alias "Simon Bale" known as "High Proctor of the Poor Sages of Lordaeron"
