I actually decided to re-start my druid and now have myself a worgen. I'll probably wait for a while to prod anyone, but I'm definitely interested in getting involved sometime soon!

Just like IRL, the female body provides the necessary "hourglass" shape to make a robe look good, more curvy and not like a sack of potatoes as is the case on males (unless said male has the typical V form body, which makes it somewhat better, but still not as good).

I know that style all too well, dear. I've had the dark-garments-with-a-concealed-face look for the past 4 years. I still win 'cause of the curves :3

To all Worgen Death Knights and aspiring Gilnean Paladins.

We've recieved an increasing number of applicants of the type Worgen Death Knight, aswell as a few hopeful people wishing to RP Gilnean Paladins. Now normally we're pleased to see the interest, but there are a few problems lore-wise with either which grants reasonable doubt to emit these two types into the Greymane Resolve, which is why we're turning most of them all down, at the moment.

First off, the easy one:

Worgen Death Knights.

The lore explanation from Blizzard is at best controversial and it has limited information regarding the creation of such. To sum it up, it explains that Worgen Death Knights have no other possible outcome to function in the universe and obey the laws of the lore, than to have been captured Worgen of the mad mage Arugal who first summoned the worgen to fight the scourge during the third war.
However these worgen were all feral, and have never been exposed to the only resemblance of a cure to this savage state that was introduced by the Royal Alchemist Krennan Aranas.
Arugal was a mage of the Kirin Tor who fled to Shadowfang Keep after Dalaran was destroyed, where he discovered the Book of Ur that explained the presence of the Worgen. He then summoned them but they were far too savage to control. Some of these worgen made their way into Gilneas where they began infecting the populace. The rest were captured and tortured by Arugal. Your death knight is then one of these captured, traumatized, tortured and most importantly -feral- worgen.
This, your, worgen then somehow escaped Shadowfang Keep and got killed by the Scourge and raised as a Death Knight.

That's all well and dandy, but a Worgen Death Knight is a feral, mindless killing machine that has no interest in turning human. It was once controlled by the Lich King as all the other Death Knights. A fact that gave it purpose and the ability to think thoughts. But now he is gone, it returns to being a mindless brute, much like any other Undead out there at present date WoW.

It is -highly- improbable that Arugal managed to find a cure similar to what the Royal Alchemist, Krennan Aranas did, since he is the only figure mentioned in lore to have discovered such and there is -no- evidence that Arugal was a skilled alchemist.

Even -if- somehow your character has a decent backstory to support all of this without being a brute and whatnot, it is still leaning towards being a snowflake, and it would be subject to much harassment and perhaps even subject to manhunts from the Resolve. It -is- Undead, it is no better in the eyes of the average Gilnean, than the Forsaken trying to invade and most would surely try to slay it on sight.

Therefore, we do NOT accept Worgen Death Knights.

Gilnean Paladin

Now... Gilneas had little to nothing to do with any other human nation during the First War and they only joined in the effort during the very late stages of the Second War. Later they pulled their forces back once the orcs were defeated and sent to interment camps. This ocurred in year 8 of the Warcraft Calendar.
The Order of the Silver Hand, the only institution capable of creating paladins of the Holy Light, were formed sometime after the First War when the Northshire Abbey was destroyed and Alonsus Faul fled to Lordaeron. This institution is created in Lordaeron and there is no evidence to suggest that a Silver Hand camp/church/training facility is located in Gilneas.
This means that any Gilnean who is a Paladin left Gilneas before the Second War, and went to Lordaeron, to train as a Paladin. After the Second War, the Gilnean Gate closes and Gilneas cuts off all communication with the outside world.
A grand total of 31 years pass until World of Warcraft: Cataclysm hits (Year 39 in the Warcraft Calendar) and the gate is shattered by the cataclysmic events (Or is it a Horde Gunship crashing into it? We will never know).
There is as far as I am concerned, no lore, regarding Paladin training or at which age boys and girls begin training. But one would assume that -any- Gilnean who leaves their homeland before the Second War, and is therefore eligible for Paladin training, is a Gilnean of particular unbiased opinion of the other human nations. He/she is somewhat of a pioneer, a curious soul and whatelse to willingly brave the world in search of adventure or whatnot. One would assume that such a person is fairly old, perhaps 16 when he/she sets out.
By the time this young human would return to Gilneas he/she would be no less than 47 years old, since the gate would prevent them from returning sooner.

As such, there are certain requirements in order to RP a Gilnean Paladin. First, his/her backstory must be compatible with before-mentioned facts (Facts that are easily found by browsing Google and typing in search words).
Second he/she must be atleast 47 years of age (Or younger provided he/she was a child and their parents were the pioneering ones, who then sent their child off to become a Paladin).
Thirdly, for aesthetic purposes, he/she should know the lore behind a Paladin and act accordingly. Following these links is a good place to start, and furthermore your character will be closely watched to determine that your actions are true to the ideals of the Holy Light and the Three Virtues:

http://www.wowwiki.com/Church_of_the_Holy_Light#The_Three_Virtues

Other links of reference for this reply:

http://wow.joystiq.com/2010/11/07/know-your-lore-the-origin-of-goblin-and-worgen-death-knights/
http://www.wowwiki.com/Timeline_%28unofficial%29

I understand that the timeline used is unofficial but it is a recording of known events put into a single linear timeline to determine when and what happened in the universe and is therefore more or less plausible to believe, along with all other information given by Blizzard (They -do- enjoy lore-raping and retconning).

If anyone is able to challenge these claims, be my guest so that we may work to find the truth behind things. However in doing so, please provide plausible explanations accompanied by evidence of Lore to back up these claims. Else your reply will be disregarded.
