Now that you know what your character looks like, and you have an idea in mind for their flaws and virtues and who that makes them as a person. We are going to talk about your character descriptions. These are used in several add-on’s that 98% of all roleplayers will have to make RP that bit smoother and easier. They allow you to write a description of your character that folks can see within the game. It is not mandatory; that is, you can indeed role-play without any kind of description, or you can have this description on a profile outside the game if you like. Most role-play realms have a wiki or an external hub for their RP community; on Argent Dawn we have the Archives at www.argentarchives.org. That said I would strongly advise against it: having one of these add-on’s is like having your curtains open in the Red Light District. Without it, people will assume you’re a raider and move along.
