Beyond Basics is a series of posts that delve into different aspects of roleplay beyond the basics of character creation within an MMO setting, for our purposes this setting is World of Warcraft but it can be useful in others too. This series will look at things like plots and storylines, conversations and the world and community around you as a player in an MMO and how you can best make use of that and how it might differ from roleplay on tabletop games for example.
