|This page is intended to be a collection of roleplaying related material where you can find links to RP tutorial articles as well as player-created fan fiction and roleplaying histories. This is not meant to be a play-by-play worklog to chronicle your PvE or PvP experiences, but to be a collection of lore created by you -- the player!|

This page is for those who enjoy roleplaying and wish to make a record of the events and storylines that they create either through RPing or other means. This is not a worklog or a journal for your Warcraft gameplay, but more of a fan fiction lore section for you to chronicle your Warcraft-derivative storylines. It focuses on roleplaying and stories that evolve from events occurring in-game rather than the forum posting type that involves users responding to each other's posts and creating a story based on that out-of-game. Examples of what should be listed here are player character biographies and Guild articles with a written history or background, usually revolving around existing in-game events but elaborating upon them by involving your characters.
This form of player-created material does not necessarily have to rely strictly on canon Warcraft lore, especially if a player character has a unique back-story independent of Warcraft history. Just as long as a story of some kind exists, it is worthy of the Roleplaying Compendium.

Character Profiles Edit
Please add only detailed characters to this list. If your character is just a name, level, race and class, it is uninteresting. A roleplayer needs more than just flat characters; they need characters of interest with an expansive breadth of background information. Try to immerse yourself into the character while writing him or her, so they can have a life of their own. What are the character's dreams, accomplishments, beliefs, prejudices, desires, companions, etc.? If your character interacts with another character of minor importance, please do not make a separate stub on the insignificant character. Nobody wants to click on the name's link to find one sentence on your minor character. Just content yourself with having a little information inside your major character's story.
