Gamers vs Violence: Michele Morrow on RIP Ethan Nichols & Carissa

Actress Michele Morrow, dubbed the scream queen of horror films, is spearheading the Gamers vs Violence campaign to let the world know how a passionate Call of Duty: Black Ops, World of Warcraft and StarCraft II gamer was murdered heartlessly in a park months ago.

The actress openly announced her interest in playing the role of Sylvanas Windrunner in the upcoming Sam Raimi's World of Warcraft film a few years ago.

With this campaign, the actress wants Blizzard Entertainment to add an in-game memorial in honor of Ethan Nichols as a nod to him.

Blizzard Entertainment is known for their real life and pop culture references in their video games including quests, NPC names, and items. Blizzard has also added in-game memorial nods to friends who have died like Blizzard artist Michel Koiter (Twincruiser) who has an in-game memorial atop a hill near Crossroads in the Barrens, Brad Bridenbecker, brother to Rob Bridenbecker VP of Online Technologies -- who has an entire questline memorial named a Tale of Valor with NPC Bridenbrad, or Crildor in Darnassus in memorial to a Dutch Warcraft fansite moderator who died in a car crash prior to the release of WoW.

The most notable in-game memorial based on a community fan was performed when the kid was still alive. Ezra Phoenix was invited to Blizzard Entertainment thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Ezra recorded his voice and created an NPC and a quest by himself.

He created the quest Kyle's Gone Missing! by NPC Ahab Wheathoof. Ezra passed away, but players remember him close to their heart.

Michele Morrow wishes a similar in-game memorial treatment for Ethan Nichols. (PC, Starcraft II, StarCraft II: Wings of LIberty, World of Warcraft, World of Warcraft: Cataclysm)
