I’ve got a long day of work ahead of me and roleplay on the mind, so I figured I’d start a conversation about dracthyr RP!
Are any of you interested in roleplaying a dracthyr? If so, what are your ideas?
Since so little has been released about them so far, I feel a bit like I’m grasping at straws, but that hasn’t stopped me from brainstorming. What we do know is that they were created by the black dragon Neltharion to be living weapons millennia ago, and that they wield the powers of all five dragonflights. That’s enough to provide a framework, at least.
I figure it would be natural for a dracthyr to feel more affinity for some dragonflights over others, just like how real people have their own talents and interests. To that end, I’ve been thinking that I’d have fun roleplaying a dracthyr that prefers the Bronze Dragonflight the most, closely followed by the Green. She might even take a name that ends in -dormi to represent this, if the lore allows it. (And coincidentally, the healing spec is based on Bronze and Green magic, so that works perfectly in my favor.)
And in that vein, I love the idea that she hasn’t completely mastered her control over time yet, so she often gets confused about where in the timeline she is. Like, maybe she will walk up to someone she has never met before and say, “Hey! I had such a good time at that bar last night!” and they’re just like, “Who are you?” Then in a week from that point, that bar visit comes to pass. It might be difficult to pull off, given I don’t want to make assumptions about what other people’s characters might do, but if I can find a way to make it work, then I’m so down.
I’ve also never roleplayed a bubbly character before, so I thought I might give it a try. Maybe she’s overly delighted about pretty much everything and doesn’t use vulgar language at all. I’m still debating on what personality she should have, though.
What about you guys? If we all throw some ideas into the pot, I think we could inspire each other and get some great characters cookin’!
