@ProductWhile i might be up to play a nation could you give me a sheet for heroes. And small factions. I dont know much about the OG warcraft games but i doe know quite a bit on world of warcraft.



@ProductI have some interest. But is it fine if im not the greatest roleplayer. Usually i stick to freestyle but this seemed very interesting.


If you're not up to running an entire nation you could try playing a single character in someone's faction. Like a Hero unit from the RTS games, or stick to a smaller faction and make alliances.
What of a Dwarf expedition


You can do wildhammer Dwarves in Aerie Peak, Hinterlands or Ironforge Dwarves in Dun Garok, Hillsbrad Foothills without breaking lore. If you're planning for an expedition it would probably make the most sense to go the Dun Garok route.
@Willy VerebI believe picking a color is an important part of a Warcraft Rp. It pays homage to the RTS games, but if nobody want to do that we can opt out.

People are free to make custom tribes/clans/orders as long as they’re lore friendly. The Vilebranch tribe from my example is an actual tribe though :p

Made a discord.

Slapped together a CS. I've never run a Nation RP before, so let me know if you feel like some importantt details are missing.
@Product

So great host. When we starting?


Good question. I thought this RP was dead in the water, so I haven't been putting much thought into it. I've never done a nation RP before, so I need to work out what sort of mechanics there will be. Does everyone want stats?

I should also do a role call to see who's all still interested. Haha.
@Bright_OpsOh, forgot this is post Third War. Albeit this raises the question of exactly when. Frozzen Throne era? Because technically the Third War concludes in Archimonde's death. Basically at this stage the fighting is far from over and the Scourge dominates most of Lordaeon. I feel that scenario wouldn't make a good nation game environment, either.

But again, @Product said we have AU setting with relatively custom nations. So whatever chaotic times we'd canonically be in, it can be sorted out.


I was going for a mid TfT start. After Arthas' exodus to Northrand, right before the Dreadlords ask Sylvanas to join them and Garithos is enslaved by Detheroc.

@Product

Interesting idea. I do think we can keep it in Lordaeron if need be. Don't want to get too divided apart.

Plus this being Warcraft anything is possible. Perhaps. Is it possible to persay reform the Kingdom of Alterac even?


Yes! Thats exactly what I was going for.

@ProductOn the second thought if you allow custom factions you can fix almost every problem you have with Warcraft. In lore let's just say national borders are insane as you can have dozens of troll tribes roaming free within human kingdoms without the two ever properly interacting. Or how typical NRP activity can be done for factions that technically have no territory. If you make this into a heavy alternate universe version of Warcraft then all these issues could be reliably solved. Amani and Gurubashi have their own proper nations. Dwarfven realms that can exist without strong dependence on Ironforge. Gnoll/Murlock nations. Corrupted lands already in control of the Scourge. Etcetera, etcetera...

If we dramatically alter the plot of Warcraft and only use the lore at its core I can see this working out. And yes, Lordaeron is big enough already to host a great variety of nations.


I was always hoping for custom factions (personally going for a troll tribe in Hinterlands). I'll use the existing lore to create events when applicable, but the narrative will be a major altar of Warcraft lore.
@King Cosmos@Sloth@McHaggis

These are accepted. Put them over in the character tab.

@Product@Bee

These are accepted after you give all of your Pokemon names.


Are nicknames necessary? I’ve never been a fan of naming my Pokémon.

Yeah, it might seem weird but Lordareon is too small for a semi-decently sized NRP campaign.
Forget WC3, you'd struggle to play WC2 style events on it.

I can make an alternate suggestion, though. What if we expand the scope to the entirety of the Eastern Kingdoms and to make things interesting we take an alternate ending to WC2 where neither side won and the Orcs still hold Arathi and Stormwind? WC3 events still kick in with the Scourge's appearance but things would be more diverse and chaotic.


I personally think Lordareon is the perfect size for the RP. The current map holds the (pre 3rd war) Kingdoms of: Lordaeron, Stromguarde, Gilneas, Dalaran, Amani Empire, half of Quel'thalas, Frostwolf Clan and the Dwarves of Aerie Peak. After factoring in lost territory due to the scourge it's a good size area to slowly expand before butting heads with one another.

I guess it all comes down to how many people were willing to join the rp. I had planned for most of the plot to revolve around the conflict with the Scourge, and that wouldn't really be possible south of Silverpine. I am willing to lengthen the map if there's a great demand for it.
