EverQuest II - SOGA dark elf
If you were to look over my army of EverQuest II alts, you'd see that seven of them boast identical visuals and single-letter variations on the same name. This is due to the fact that I wanted to try a bunch of EQII's classes while roleplaying a single personality.

Most of these guys were made many years ago, and the sad fact is that I don't roleplay much anymore, but if I did I'd have what amounts to Norrath's biggest jack-of-all-trades since technically there's a single dark elf out there who's a Shadowknight, a Guardian, a Berserker, a Bruiser, a Dirge, a Brigand, and an Assassin. And that's not even looking at all his tradeskill professions, either.

What about you, Massively folk? Assuming you care about roleplay, are your alts unique characters or are they class-based variations on the same individual?

Every morning, the Massively bloggers probe the minds of their readers with deep, thought-provoking questions about that most serious of topics: massively online gaming. We crave your opinions, so grab your caffeinated beverage of choice and chime in on today's Daily Grind!
