I'm a big fan of roleplay inspired videos. They not only give us a little bit of insight to how RPers play the game, but also tend to use lore in some interesting ways. And, if nothing else, roleplay videos really help bring some panache and style into our everyday escapsim.

Today's movie is Tales of Icecrown Part 3 -- Ashes to Ashes. You may not be familiar with Tales of Icecrown part one and part two, but I don't think that's entirely necessary to enjoy this installment. The story is a quick snippet about a man becoming a Death Knight. That's not exactly new to the world of Wrath roleplay, but the video still does a pretty good job of framing the narrative.

This also gives hints about a new roleplay alliance (with a little "a'), or maybe it's hinting at a guild being formed. But the idea of the Knights of the Ebone Blade and the Argent Crusade forming a specific new covenant is a pretty cool idea. And, I admit, I like the name Ashen Verdict. It sounds all gritty and raw, and definitely seems like a group ready to go take on Arthas.
