Trophies, points and Unlockable Achievements are all well and good, but if you have really made an impression in a game world, wouldn't it be nice to have some proper recognition? What's a Chaos Warrior gotta do to get some respect around here?

Warhammer Online aims to address this issue by erecting statues of highly-ranked players on each of its shard world servers. It may not be as permanent as actual stone, but it should last until the next client upgrade at least - which is immortality of a sort.

WAR Adding Statues to Immortalize Players [Wired]

DISCUSSION

I managed to inadvertently immortalize my Asheron's Call character many years ago by getting a story I wrote "published" at the library in Cragstone. By doing so, I was told that it meant that my two main characterz (whose other accomplishments amounted to little more than being a gimped level 60 template warrior and a slightly less gimped level 72 warrior) are part of the official canon as a result.

I don't know if the book is still around in game, but a web search on "The D00dz" should pull up the story somewhere.
