Villains and bad guys come in a vast range of shapes and formats, but they are rather rare, and to find them done well is even rarer still. They are also essential to any good story-line or plot for breeding conflicts and tensions. Within World of Wacraft, you can happily and easily content yourself with Blizzard’s pre-made Bad Guys in the form of the Legion, the Scourge, the various cults, and so on. But some folk look for and desire something on a more close and personal basis, something that can develop and grow, change and adapt to suit their story and within their time frame. This leaves a desire and/or a need for player character (PC) villains for that personalised and touch and the ability to adapt with a story-line. As such occasional people will create a character to stand in as a bad guy for various plots and stories for themselves, their friends or their guilds, and some people will just be drawn by the idea of playing a bad guy even if they don’t have a pre-set need and slot for the character. We are going to talk about all kinds of bad guys here so buckle up and stay tuned.
