World of Warcraft gamers plan virtual Ron Paul march

Posted by Humphrey Cheung

Irvine (CA) – You expect to see all types of people from housewives to steel workers at a political rally, but how about a Troll or Night Elf?  Well, some very dedicated Ron Paul for President supporters are taking their message online, specifically the mega-hit game World of Warcraft.  The group has planned a virtual march from the Alliance city of Ironforge to Stormwind on New Year’s Day at 8:30 PM EST.

To prevent any virtual political violence, the players will hold their march on what’s called a PvE server (player versus environment) - a type of server that generally allows combat by agreement. The group is certainly organized as it has already formed a guild called RP Revolution and a website.  You can read the initial message board thread about the march here.
