Bear tackles roleplaying and how it relates to Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead (which is Hamlet, in a roundabout sort of way).
His main point, which I absolutely agree with, is that we’re like R&G in that play/film. We’re not Hamlet – we’re not Arthas. We’re not Jaina Proudmoore’s younger sister who has a love affair with Illidan and is conspiring against Kael’thas.
We’re like Rosencrantz and Guildenstern – minor characters that go about doing our own things and our own lives and occasionally having brushes with greatness, but having separate and equally interesting adventures as well.
I’m just hoping that the end of WoW is somewhat happier than the end of Hamlet (at least, I hope the good guys get to live!).
