Undead and Sort of Liking It, I Guess
After a long, unfortunate break from our game of choice, I have returned with a new lease on life, or unlife, as it were.
Browsing my previous posts easily shows that my penchant for creating multiple alts that get to about level 10 or so and float aimlessly through the long-forgotten limbo of whatever random server I happened to choose at the time. I see no reason why this character should be any different. I like to be predictable.
I’ve decided to roll a Forsaken. He is of the male variety, and his name is Necrophage (from the Latin necrophagous).
Necrophagous \Ne*croph”a*gous\, a. [Gr. ? eating corpses; ? a dead body + ? to eat: cf. F. n[‘e]crophage.] (Zo[“o]l.)
Yeah, it sounds icky, but it’s not like I made that part up.
I’m always surprised when I think of a name it isn’t already taken, especially something as obvious as that. It’s like making a Tauren named Lawnmower.
I’ve played Undead characters before, but Necrophage is going to be my first real exploration of the Forsaken content – after a long break from the game, I come to the Horde with fresh eyes. For instance, I’ve already lost my way in Undertcity, that maze of skulls and green goo that seemingly sprang forth from Tim Burton’s enigmatological fantasies.
I like the hunched-over stagger of the Undead character models, and the kick-ass dance, but mostly I just like eating corpses.
