• Five years ago today

    It was December 26th, 2004, and as usual, Valinar had gotten a ton of video games for Christmas. One of the games he'd gotten was World of Warcraft. I'd heard of WoW. I was familiar with the Warcraft franchise, having been with Valinar and one of our good friends at the midnight release of Warcraft […]

  • Misheard

    Me (as heard by Valinar): Want to log in and play our little Ovis? Valinar: *cracks up* I think they're called "dwarves", not "Ovis". Me: I said lowbies! Want to log in and play our little lowbies? By the way, if you're on Twitter, and would like to contribute to a running list of "stupidest […]

  • Five questions: Winter Veil

    Finally, finally, something dwarves can (mostly) lay claim to! Yes, it's the dwarves who shared Winter Veil with humans — and elves and gnomes and draenei. So it's time for another five questions! How do you celebrate Winter Veil? 1. Do you celebrate Winter Veil at all? If so, is it a new tradition for […]

  • Five questions: Talents and abilities

    I really had fun with the five interview questions I tossed out last week, so I think I'm going to give that another shot this week. If you have interview questions you'd like to toss out, I'd be happy to save 'em for a later post! Talents and abilities! 1. What's one thing you're particularly […]

  • Why can't I roll on that trinket in a random heroic? This is why.

    The other day I took Ovistine — my shadow priest — to Oculus. Now, Ovistine's trinkets kinda suck, so when a Pendulum of Telluric Currents dropped, I was pretty psyched. I was the only DPS caster in the group, so I figured it was a no-brainer that I'd get it. I tried to click the […]

  • "One cannot cheat fate."

    (( "Perhaps we can't, Mr. Data. But at least we can give it a try." Another Ovistine story. ))

  • Five questions: On romance

    I've been reading the Aely and Arrens story with all kinds of interest — it's always neat to see how characters' relationships start out. (Also, I can't help but think the fallout from Arrens going all neanderthal and telling Tarquin to keep his paws off Aely must have been awesome.) Romance seems to be the […]

  • Three shoulders, three days

    I hadn't pugged an instance in more than four years. I stopped pugging when I finally fell in with a bunch of folks in WoW, and I still play with those people, plus I've got a raid now, and I often group with them. There's been no need to pug, plus I just generally had […]

  • But why is the boat gone?

    The disadvantage to dragging my heels on things like, say, writing out the Lighthammers at the Wrathgate story is — well, in the end, the game itself moves on, and while characters on their own may not have continuity issues, when your characters are interacting with other characters, continuity in an MMO becomes a whole […]
