Post by Visceril on Sun Feb 10, 2013 2:32 pm



Character name: Kai'gron Ripclaw
Gender: Male
Age: around 37
Race: Orc
Class: Rogue

Birth region: Draenor
Specific area/town: Tanaan Jungle
Family: Gor'grull-Father, Kaigor-Grandfather

Description: Standing at around 6' 8" / 7' with boulder-like shoulders, skin is a subtle shade of green. Red eyes, Raven mohawk hair and beard. Most notably is that his right side of his face and covering all of his arms and legs are blood red tribal tattoo's which indicate his Ripclaw history. Often wears a red and black tribal patterned tabard which signifies his Ripclaw lineage. Many tribal trophies are worn around short necklaces, upper bicep straps and through pierced ears. 2 large ripped claws hang from both the hilts of his boned blades.

Personality: A boulder of a Orc, his muscular appearance stands in contrast to his quiet, spiritual and meditative personality. Kai moves with a fluid grace and his reflexes are fast, acute and is honorable and admires, respects any enemy that can go toe to toe with him. Although often spiritual, Kai'gron still seethes with a suppressed rage. He speaks with a deep, guttural voice.

History:
Son of Gor'grull Ripclaw, Vira'kur of Tribe Ripclaw, Kai was born around the end of The Dying Times (-6 WoW time line) and was set into warfare as a pup. Hailing from Ripclaw lineage, the young Orcling immersed himself within the packs culture. As with all you young bloods of the tribe upon adulthood the first phase of their om'riggor would begin. He was cast into the wild to fend for himself, utilising all that was bestowed to him, his task was to trophy a claw of a great beast. It was here the young male Orc completed his trial, and would be accepted as Caiju'ka and the Tautae (tattoo) would be started by the Yaut'ja (Shaman) of the tribe.


The final phase of his om'rigg saw the now older and wiser Kai'gron hunt a rogue Garn known as Shar'kar, this old worg had killed its own pack and roamed within the deep jungle of Tanaan. The Yaut'ja forsaw that the spirit of Shar'kar would bestow a blessing to the one that trophies the great Garn. Kai'gron, along with five other Caiju'ka each set out alone to slay the Garn, it was Kai who returned with the carcass of the Shar'kar, but he also brought the bodies of his tribal brothers and sisters all slaine by Shar'kar. He would later accept dual blades formed from the skeleton and claws of Shar'kar from the tribal elders as his trophy of slaying the great rogue Garn of Tanaan.


Utilising various flowers, seeds, sap, animal venoms and other natural dangers Kai can produce and mix varying degrees of vicious poisons, powders and toxins which can be administered in a number of lethal ways. The thrill of the hunt, the pride of the kill is a creed taken from his birth tribe that Kai adheres to throughout his life, taking a trophy from those kill, that he himself deems worthy.

Things you may know about this character: Takes pride in the preparation of herbal infused tea. Adept master poisoner.
Things you may not know about this character: Cutting gemstones as one of his hobbies.
Possible crime record: None

Since Blizzard released the RPG books. If not before.
Orcs are not small things.

Huh. Fair enough, not the way they are represented in-game from their physical models at all!

According to the same RPG book resources, trolls also have fur. I don't trust em one bit. Have you ever seen a troll (primals aside) with fur? I didn't think so. Just go with the in-game representation.

Very very short fur?

According to that wowpedia research, orcs are longer then trolls on average.
Yet in-game every troll is taller then every orc.
I'd rather trust what I see in-game then some obscure resource.

There have been discussions about the fur before. I think the general consensus was that it's up to the player to decide whether they have a lot of fur, a bit of fur here and there, or just none at all, since there's been such a division about it.

I think it's safe to say Bliz mucked up on the original models in more than just one way, as both orcs and tauren (and probably trolls) are too short (probably to prevent having to make building entrances and such too huge), orcs have no eyebrows even though they do on all the art, and so forth. And yes, if you look at some of the old art work and such as well, you can see orcs being far larger in size as well. Not to mention the representation of orc children, where in the officially recognized book (just saying) Lord of the Clans, Thrall was described as being taller than most other humans at the mere age of six already, whereas in the game all orc children are just tiny toddlers.

Having said that, someone's personal character page probably isn't the best place for such a discussion. If people are really eager to have this discussion, perhaps a mod could move it.

Reason orc men don't apear as tall are the hunched over shoulders.
Same with trolls. (male).
And Forest trolls are mosscovered, not fur covered! The fur is the ice trolls!

But as Koz said. The Ingame modles are sorta. Bland and bad a lot of the time.

Discussions like this tend to sprout up in the most unlikely, or unwanted places. If Kraigon doesn't like it in his thread, he can PM a mod to get it removed. No problem Very Happy

I'm a "what you see is what you get" kind of guy. I've not seen a single piece of artwork, in game, or in art galleries, that depicts trolls with fur. Or moss. The only source that states it, as far as I'm aware, are the RPG books.

If the new troll models introduced in Mists of Pandaria are any indication of how the new player models are going to look if blizzard ever makes them, I doubt that's going to change any time soon. Therefore, I will play out trolls as having no fur, and I will play out orcs as being the size they are in-game (on average!)

Click for MoP Troll Models:
This is not to say someone can't play a furry troll, or a tall orc with a straight back. That's up to you to decide. A moss-covered forest troll druid does sound pretty damn cool. But as the base-line, the average, the canon; I will take what I see in-game.

Slightly irrelevant. But that's Vol'jin. I doubt trolls would look like him since blizzard seems to make their heroes a bit unique.


Also what's so hard with imagining their skin being covered in a short, thin layer of fur or moss? We're not talking about lion manes here.


Also feeling bad about this derailing, should take it to a discussion thread.

So here's some more.

Spoiler:



Interestingly, the blue one, presumably an Ice Troll, does have clear fur on his legs. Rejoice! The green one does have some hints of body hair, but nothing that can be called "fur" with a straight face.

Perhaps in-time we'll see the claims of the RPG books emerge in-game, after all.

So Scuzy.
Since "What you see is what you get" for you.
Are all human males on Azeroth musclebound freaks the size of Arnold and Stalone, including people who've never lifted weights in their life?

Also, Kai'gron is an epic character!

No. But if I meet one, I will assume they are unless they have stated otherwise in their MRP, or emoted it. There has to be a baseline to work with, and using the in-game models seems like the logical, and most convenient way to go, doesn't it?

Sweet mother of god people, leave this poor profile alone! It needs some tender love, not discussion. Sad
