This blog and podcast are here because of my love and frustration with Warcraft lore.
I've been playing World of Warcraft on and off since early 2005. Originally as a Dwarf hunter, later became a Troll Mage, later a Tauren Druid, and of late I spend most of my time playing a Troll Death Knight.
On personal level I struggle with learning disability that effects my ability to write. With the help of my wife and Marathanes I'm able to have them look at my work and point out errors I wouldn't otherwise see. My brain likes to skip words, substitute the wrong word and often spell things wrong 'it' and 'is' 'do' and 'to' for example. 'Very' and 'never' would be another example of my problem. Over the years I have gotten better at spotting these mistakes but from time to time I'll look at post that I think is ok then post it and come back a week later and wonder how anyone can read the darn thing. So I ask you bare with me. My wife and Marathanes are good but I'm a fair bit of trouble.
When not playing World of Warcraft I enjoy woodworking, gardening and reading. Nothing overly remarkable but I like it.
This week I review the story from Warcraft Legends Volume 3 I Got What Yule Need. Written by Christie Golden I figured if there is a time of year to review a Feast of Winter Veil story its now, much like how I did my A Cleansing Fire review around Hollow's End. So I hope you all enjoy the review. Score: 3.5 of 5 Stars
Half way through the final month of 2011 I'm joined by Noelove from the new Warcraft Podcast Heals and Headshots to talk about the 4th letter from the Art of Catacysm book. In addition to Lorna Crowley we talk about music in warcraft, epic quests, and much much more.
Welcome to the first new podcast of 2012. We are continuing our letters from the Art of Cataclysm series. The show is filled with goblins, plans, and generally sleepiness. I'll be honest its a bit rough but its important not to let deadlines slip to much.
This week we mix it up a little bit with new Introduction and Outro by apsana. Many thanks to her, I think these gives the show a bit more of a lore feel I love. The main subject is another in our letters series Fiasco Sizzlegrin.
This week's Podcast is the 3rd in my letter from the The Art of Cataclysm Book. Tharkan Bloodspike gives us this first hand account of the day Azeroth fell apart. And this stand as only of few stories other than Night Elf leader short story that focuses on that day.
This week it was my great honor to have Lady Illidarn best known for her lore segments on to talk about A Cleansing Fire and Hallow's End in General. Also if you would like to listen to Sylvanas Windrunner & Genn Greymane Wickerman Speeches they can be found in Episode 9. 5 of 5 Stars
Due in part to limited time and my appearance on Rep Grind Radio I decided this week to do another short story from the Warcraft Dungeons & Dragons Warcraft The Roleplaying Game. This short story is a about Oakwidow and her thoughts as the Alliance and Horde rip each other apart in battle for a gold mine.
