Theme Week Human: HUMANS are AWESOME.

ATTENTION. ACTUAL DISCUSSION WITH JESS.

SEAN: I think the humans are awesome.
JESS: You suck.

There may have been more words attached. None the less, the message is clear. JESS HATES HUMANS OR AT LEAST THINKS THEY ARE BORING. In this, she is WRONG. Humans are AWESOME in a LARGE VARIETY OF WAYS.

FIRST, humans are the first race in the history of Warcraft, along with orcs. You don’t get Warcraft without them, and this is why the game is BUILT AROUND THEM. If you have a human character, you can drive a character history all the way back to THE FIRST GAME, with all the RICH, JUICY back story this provides.

Which brings me to my SECOND point. Humans are the DOMINANT Alliance race. More so than ANY RACE they CONTROL the Alliance agenda. Humans have a COCKY ARROGANCE that is a lot of fun to play as a result; they know they’re ON TOP and you should show this.

Along with these highly convincing points is a THIRD ARGUMENT. Humans have no PRECONCEIVED STRENGTHS OR WEAKNESSES. Unlike other races, there’s no firm stereotype to begin with. This makes them a really terrific choice for people who want every character to be a UNIQUE AND PRECIOUS SNOWFLAKE. There’s an unbelievable amount of variety in the human lore, a STAGGERING number of places you could have come from, and NEAR INFINITE POSSIBILITY.

Playing a human is COOL. You get to be THE RULING BODY, to KNOW IT, and to have A WIDER RANGE OF POSSIBILITIES THAN ANY OTHER RACE.

This article was absolutely not my attempt to sound like JOHN HODGEMAN. Who is also AWESOME.

An AWESOME HUMAN.

  1. Forget more cow bell, more CAPS dammit lol. :p

    But you did make some good points for sure, on why humans aren’t the plain jane vanilla race of the game that lots of people may view them as. And I must admit, I was one of those people to some extent but this place has for sure helped me love them more and see all the possibilities one can have as a human.

    I know I will definitely be rolling more humans in the future, thanks to this place! šŸ™‚
