The Ultimate Nerdery – AU Your WoW Character
I was trying to amuse myself on a slow work day, so Dee and I got into some weird discussion about Alternate Universe (AU) and our WoW characters. Who would they be in current society? What would their habits and interests be? It was sorta fun to flesh out Raz from a modern day fantasy perspective. I polled Mal about it over dinner (we were drinking, sometimes discussions get weird) and jotted down the questions that were asked/answered.
I thought in some strange corner of my mind that this would be fun to do across the blogosphere and am curious to learn more about other people’s thoughts on their WoW characters in today’s times!
General Character Factoids
- Character Name
- Age (you can stay true to RP age or convert it into a more “human” number)
- Sexuality (optional)
- Work Background
- Does your character work?
- If so, what do they do?
- Does it tie back to their in-game professions?
- Do they own their company, are they in management, or are they a peon (zug zug)?
- Do they work 9-5 or is their schedule flexible based on what they do (maybe a mercenary?)
- Where does your character reside?
- Do they live with others or alone?
- If they live with others, are they roommates, spouses/significant others?
- Talk about their house
- If they are single, is it the ultimate bachelor pad?
- Is it cluttered with all the things that fill your bags and bank (lucky rocks, archaeology finds, etc)?
- What’s their decorating style?
- Fashion – what’s their style?
- For the guys: Boxers or Briefs (or commando!)?
- For the girls: Well, the girl side of this question. (Typing th— on my blog actually weirds me out for some reason)
- What sort of music defines them? This could be the music you listen to when you PvP or raid. It could be a song that you think highlights your character.
- What’s their favorite food?
- What’s their favorite drink?
- Transportation – would your character drive or use public transport (or have a driver)?
- What’s one thing that your character would take with them from Azeroth to the current times?
I’ll be posting my info shortly–I just wanted to get this out there (it was too funny to ignore) and see what other people came up with!
Enjoy my Monday derp post!
