6, What is the back-story and history of your character? (Feel free to be as detailed as you would like.)
Family and Beginning Life:
Life and death are always in the balance, but what matters is family. That is at least what Sang Chol’s mother told him. Sangs story begins on the back of Shen-zin Su 25 years ago. Born alongside two sisters and three brothers, Sang’s days were filled with life, laughter, and food.
Sang’s mother was a part time acupuncturist, mist walker, and all around full-time mother, his father, a brew master. It was expected that all members of the family participated in the crafting of the Kegthrower beer and, for many years, that was Sang’s life. Stirring, bottling, labelling, he and his family laughed and sang as they worked to continue the crafting tradition held for generations. When extra gold was needed, Sang Chol and his sisters would assist their mother in running a small holistic clinic.
The Kegthrowers were followers of the Huojin philosophy, quick to action and festivities, always searching for the next exotic ingredient or the next adventure. It was said that the Kegthrowers brew held the same energy and love of life that they held dearly. This was, of course, only when they were not focused on their training.
Martial Arts: Martial arts training was a Pandaren way of life, and the Kegthrower clan readily embraced that. While not the best students, the Kegthrower children met all of their challenges with the same passion and zest for life that their family was known for. Coupled with both their strength from the years of hauling kegs, as well as their gained experience with harmonizing the chi of others, the Kegthrower family’s sparring sessions were energetic and passionate, known to go long into the night.
For the Horde:
When Ji Firepaw left for the horde, much of Sang Chol’s life changed. His family stood behind their Hujoin philosophy and followed eagerly into Azeroth, their gut instincts telling them that a new brew (and a new market) would be awaiting them. To them, Shen-zin Su was healed, was safe and no longer filled their wanderlust. Should they wish to return, they felt they always could, but it was this new land that meant much.
While in the Horde, The Kegthrower family found limited success in Ogrimmar, scraping a living out of guiding trade caravans supplying front lines. Desiring to open a brewery of their own, the Keg thrower family acted as trader, healer, and sometimes smuggler when ever the Horde requested. As the exploits became more and more ambitious, and their actions more and more dangerous, Sang began to quietly fret for the safety of his family. His family needed money to create their future and Sang needed his family to be safe. A mercenaries life would not be that hard, would it? I mean it pays well.. and they will always need someone who can hurt as much as he can heal.. and hey, armies travel on their stomach!
7, Tell us about the personality of your character.
Sang Chol is an adventurous, loyal, and joy filled Pandaren. Driven by his duty to help his family, Sang Chol willingly pushes himself into danger to earn the coin that will keep them safe. Due to his belief in the Hujoin philosophy, Sang Chol is, at times, reckless and will follow his gut feelings more often than his mind.
8, What does your character look like?
Sang Chol, like many of his Pandaren brethren, has a distinctive black and white coat, with black fur around their eyes and on their ears, muzzle, legs and shoulders. He has just reached the Pandaren equivalent of adulthood and maintains a rather youth filled appearance. Despite the age, he Sang proudly maintains a long beard that will always be maintained to a clean tip
Sang will have wrapped tape around his hands, preferring to have battles weapons of opportunity (his favourite a kitchen cleaver). With his money being primarily sent to his family, Sang Chol will keep a modest (but clean) style of dress.
9, What does your character think of their war-chief, Sylvanas Windrunner?
IC - “When I learned about our war-chief, I was fascinated. I was fascinated by all of the Forsaken. How did they survive while their chi was gone. They moved, they talked, they even channeled energies but seemed to lack a chi force like my own... Even more importantly, did they even eat!?
Oh well, no matter, it is she who leads us forward and it is she who will keep my family safe.”
10, The following questions are designed to get a better grasp of your character within their race and position within the Horde. Only answer the question(s) specified to your character’s race. If the question does not apply to your character perfectly, still try to answer to the best of your ability.
Being a rather “new” arrival from the wandering isles, Sang Chol has found a combination of suspicion and fascination from many of the new races. Being of a travelling trading family, Sang has become accustomed to many life ways but has not ventured far from his family so is always interested in learning new ways. Sang is particularly fascinated with the forsaken as they “violate” his understanding of the life force, chi. He has found himself even comforted by the silence of the forsaken and will spend time in their company when possible.
11, Which pages of the site did you read?
The Legacy, Kalimdor Mercenaries, Rules, FAQ, Forum posts to establish a better understanding of the type of characters, How to join. As much as I could!
12, What does the large feline-like to eat?
The large cat likes to eat polish sausage. The pandaren does as well.
13, Can you initiate role play on your own? How often do you? How do you?
Yes, I most certainly can. I find the best way to begin a short role play is presenting an idea “hey I think it would be good for my character.” or “hey there is this event, how can we be apart..” or “I have a keg, who wants to drink?” For longer role plays, a forum thread/discussion area would be required. The size of the event is
14, What does the tiny automobile use for fuel?
15, How involved do you like to be in the guild community outside of the game? Do you enjoy using forums/mumble, etc?
I am quite happy participating in forums and being involved in events that may use discord etc. I do prefer to keep my roleplaying to text (I don’t want to do a bad accent for my character but always remaining willing to talk/state “Sang will do *insert text*.)
16, Why do you want to join Warforged Legacy?
What attracted me to the Warforged Legacy was the guilds desire to have quality roleplays. I found this particularly evident in the presence of strict guidelines. It is in strict roleplay environments I know I can thrive. I also quite appreciate the use of a mentoring system as no matter the experience level of a role player, one can always improve with proper guidance.
17, Do you know anyone in the guild, and how do you know them?
Sadly I do not know anybody beyond some of their forum posts.
18, How did you hear about us?
Searching through forums, actually. It began with returning to WoW and selecting the most populated horde RP server followed by reviewing numerous other guilds. After reading through the forums of many websites, I found the Warforged Legacy.
19, On average, how often do you log into this character and play? Try to be specific.
4 days a week for 2-3 hours in each session.
20, What was the name of the last guild you were in, and why did you leave it?
I have never been in a World of Warcraft guild before, actually. Before this I did independent RP’s with other characters. In other games, most notably Star Wars Galaxies, I was a member of the XVI stormtrooper roleplay group and later the Imperial Office of Criminal Investigations (IOCI).
21, Anything you would like to add? (Tell us about yourself, etc.)
I am a veteran role player that has recently returned to WoW and feel quite excited to role play in a serious, mercenary stile, roleplaying guild not only to improve my own style but to have fun. I am, of course, always open for feedback and willing to grow. (Oh and yes, my character is always able to die/be mortally injured)
