    Do we have to use a allready in the Lore character is a better question:D Cause I'd rather make up a new one then having to write about like The Tauren Chieftain (Cairne Bloodhoof or something like that:D)

    I liked the Orc Gladiator, maybe I will make a story about a Tauren that became a Gladiator after being attacked by some Ogre's from Dire Maul. It sounds like a good Idea?

    Finally a place to get my imagination flowing out.

    I'm in.

    The story will be about lone warrior, travelling around the Azeroth in search of something... that will be written in my story.

    Well, I know all about arakkoa and furbolgs, however in furbolg story there will be lots of lore made by me and stuff, plus its more dynamic. It will tell the story of the tribe saved by Tyrande in RoC.

    Arakkoa is less dinamic and tells the story of Terokk's relics and the origin of Skettis Exiles.

    A half-elf is an interesting concept to explore. Especially because humans nor high elves will take them in.

    Do we have to use some event in War3 universe (or WoW) and make a story out of it, or can we just have strong foundations in lore, but imagine our event.

    He said after War2. But I don't know if that's war3 or does it include wow.

    And must story be just something picked from lore and worked on, or made up, with few lore to support it...

    I think I will try this out. Just two questions: is there a cutoff in the game time line, or is it just any time after war2? Also, when you say war2, does that include the expansion?
