A self-styled priestaphiliac, Piroska is a long-time player of World of Warcraft having participated in the beta-testing (though admittedly under her brother's account). While originally an active member of both the Horde and PvP realms, she was eventually convinced to reroll Alliance on the Feathermoon US roleplaying server. There Piroska joined the ranks of prepubescent teens everywhere by rolling her Night Elf, a hunter by the name of Eszti Nightwing.
While interested in the vast - and often contradictory - lore of the universe, Piroska readily admits that she has never really played any of the previous Warcraft games; she enjoyed decimating the ranks of the Terran by playing the children of the Xel'Naga in StarCraft much more. She attempts to correct this deficit by talking to lore-mongers, researching on a number of informative websites, and actively participating in a variety of roleplaying- and lore-based websites.
On Conquest of the Horde
Piroska has been a member of Conquest of the Horde since February 2010. She stumbled across the server's site some months before joining while researching information for a character that she had recently rolled. Intrigued by what she saw, she explored the vast majority of the site and its accompanying wiki. While she was enamored with the idea of a roleplaying server like Conquest of the Horde, she was initially loathe to make the jump to join.
In the months that followed, she had occasionally lamented that the Feathermoon US roleplaying server would be better if it paralleled the roleplaying ideals (and rules) of the server. Her words must have fired up the imaginations of her guildmates because suddenly a number of them were struck with the sudden desire to experience that sort of an environment. They came up with a potential guild and backstory for it, created character profiles, and submitted their introductions while waiting with bated breaths.
Piroska styles herself a roleplayer, disdaining the use of terms like casual, medium, and heavy to refer to her style. However, if pressed, she will admit that she would most likely be categorized as a heavy roleplayer. She tends to conduct herself in an in-character fashion at almost all times when she ventures into Azeroth, with the largest exception being when she raids since the way her main raiding character butchers Common would leave her fellow raiders in a state of utter confusion. She continues to roleplay in-group in the face of frequent opposition from players who, for some odd reason, disdain roleplay and yet play on a roleplaying server. This is a state of affairs that still perplexes her, some years after having actively joined a roleplaying server.
If given the opportunity, the woman would gleefully inform anyone that, despite the stigma associated with many roleplayers by non-roleplayers, she actively engages in frequent PvP (both in the Battlegrounds and world PvP) and raids on two characters. Piroska is known to promote roleplaying to neophytes on the Feathermoon US RP server and has taken numerous young transfers to the server underwing in order to help ease them into a roleplaying mindset; she stringently condemns anyone that denounces roleplaying and roleplayers. That said, Piroska will not go out of her way to harass non-roleplayers and doesn't even mind attempts to ruin immersion (while the use of shorthand, leet, and dewd speak has be known to drive her bonkers), though she has been known to join crusades to enforce roleplaying server policies in regards to Blizzard's reactive response to violations.
In creating characters, Piroska heavily researches lore through the two most comprehensive World of Warcraft sources readily available to her: WoWWiki and a copy of the World of Warcraft The Roleplaying Game handbook that was given to her by a friend some years ago. She delights in using these sources to further flesh out her characters and help create extensive, well-rounded, and believable individuals. She disdains the proliferation of so-called Mary Sues and so her characters are typically very minor participants in the world with very limited spheres of influence.
One of Piroska's greatest kept secrets is that she was roleplaying in the World of Warcraft universe well before being coerced to join the Feathermoon US roleplaying server by an unnamed friend. Months before her emigration, she was roleplaying as both her human priest and gnome rogue on the Arthas US PvP server. She did this in the face of constant condemnation and harassment, most likely because she enjoyed watching the adverse reactions.
