Laws of the Claws

Behold, the Power of Snark!

This week’s Blog Azeroth Shared Topic comes from Mataoka of Sugar & Blood and runs from October 15-21.

The Rules of Me: What are your personal rules you wish others would know about you?

Hmm, this is an interesting one!

I’m torn between making a really long list of everything that people need to know about how I play and how I wish other people would play– but after thinking about it for a bit I realize I can boil everything down to three rules. Continue reading

In Another Lifetime

This week’s Blog Azeroth Shared Topic comes from Dragonray of Azerothian Life and runs from April 2-7th.

…This of course always leads me to think about wow and who I would be if I could be and I wondered what everyone thought?

Are you more like Thrall or Jaina? Would you wish to be like Lady vash’j?

If I lived in the Warcraft universe, I’d probably be dead.

And not undead, unless I was very very unlucky, just the plain old normal dead of your everyday Stormwind NPC. Or Goldshire. Or Darkshore. Or Dun Morogh… Continue reading

Buddy Can You Spare a Hint?

This week’s Shared Topic over at Blog Azeroth was suggested by Dragonray and based on a comment from Logtar of WoW Stuck and is about what we do while gaming. The shared topic runs from March 19-25, so get a’typing!

Do you guys think that the LFR and LFD kill the sense of community, but taking it one step further; does it also kill the passing down of knowledge?

Yes and double-yes! Continue reading

A Business Casual Horde

Split Allegiances

For The-- err, Azeroth!

This week’s Shared Topic over at Blog Azeroth was suggested by Akabeko of Red Cow Rise and is about showing our Nerd Pride. The shared topic runs from Jan 22-28, so come join the fun! :D

How do you express your geekery? Do you own obvious paraphernalia like a Horde-symbol bumper sticker, in-joke t-shirts like the dps/ups pun, or less obviously related items like a gift from a guildie? Rather than physical indicators, do you mix nerd lingo into your everyday speech or talk/post about geekdom in non-nerd spaces? How do you advertise your nerd tendencies? Does it help you to attract new nerd friends?

You wouldn’t guess I’m a Warcraft player if you saw me in real life—unless you happened to see the screenshots in my screensaver at work. Continue reading

Of Turkeys And Blogs

Turkey Day

MSPaint + Touchpad = FAILTurkey

In honor of the 2011 Blog Azeroth Thanksgiving event, I give you yet another reason why I should not be allowed to do anything creative when I’m away from my main computer.

And Paint Shop Pro.

(not an official entry– I want to play, but not the prizes! *grin*)

Of Turkeys and Blogs

Avast my wide and worldly friends, all scattered ‘cross the web
Please take a momentary pause, all rested, fully fed
The turkey’s gone, the dishes washed, leftovers packed away
What better time than now to thank those friends from whom we’ve strayed? Continue reading

Blog Azeroth Thanksgiving Event 2011!

Blog Azeroth Thanksgiving Event 2011

Want to win a Guardian Mount or a Gurky/Lurky Murlock plush, or a pet? Well then strap on your thinking caps and head on over to Amerence’ post about the Blog Azeroth Thanksgiving event! (Deadline is Nov 26!)

I’m not sure if I’ll get a chance to play due to NaNo and holiday madness, but I’m going to give it a shot. Not for the prizes, just for the fun! I’ve had a lot of fun wandering the BA blogs and it’s certainly the season to be grateful for friends online and off. … Even if I’m more of a lurker. … *lurks* Continue reading

This week’s Shared Topic over at Blog Azeroth was suggested by Essence of The Gamer Girl Confessions and is all about the World of Warcrafts!

Inspired by Kalixta’s WoW Recipe IRL topic and the “World of Warcrafts” column over at WoW Insider, I started wondering, how many people are into making WoW-like things in real life? Not just food, though food could count too. But how many people create pottery inspired by WoW? Or wigs, or costumes inspired by WoW? Or even knit or sew things relating to WoW? Or are you a fan artist with pen and paper or pastels or clay? How about Machinmas? Comics? Stories?
