From the ground up is a series of blog posts aimed at helping you create a roleplay character from the ground up. These guides are mostly geared towards creating characters for roleplay within the World of Warcraft, but the basic principals could likely be used for character creation for a variety of different games both online and on table top, perhaps even for fiction writing. With that said this post stands as the index page and below you will find an indexed list of links to all the parts of this series to make it easier to find what you need.

If you have read these guides and enjoyed them please let us know by leaving a comment, if you think we have missed something or could help you more by adding more about a certain topic or a topic we might have missed entirely, again please let us know. Otherwise if you have your character build up or already made you might also enjoy reading our series Beyond the Basics covering other aspects of roleplay beyond basic character creation and Venerable Villains where we look at what makes a good bad guy in the world of MMO’s. We also have a series running that delves into exploring the different zones and worlds in World of Warcraft for their lore and roleplay potential.
I hope you find this series useful, and if you do please get in touch and tell me about the character you made, I’d love to heard from you.
Until then please remember to follow me on the social media links at the top of the sidebar for updates!
