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.

Episode 40: Expansion ideas for after Mists
Feb 26th 2012
I'm not the greatest writer in the world, having a learning disability in written language often limits me. I do my best to over come it on my own but there were just some things I wasn't able to get across in Fridays article Heart of Elune, which had my ideas for a Warcraft expansion. So rather than do my normal show I decided to talk about my idea. Still not sure how well it came across. But this is a idea which a I would love to see even if I honestly never expect it to come to pass.

Episode 41: Mass Effect: Deception
Mar 14th 2012
This week I come back a from a long break. With a review of the newest Mass Effect Novel Deception by William C. Dietz. If your looking for me to say nice things about something this is not the podcast for you. But its still clean.
Episode 42: Townlong Steppes Cop
Mar 28th 2012
Quick show this week. I still feel show 25 does a great job laying everything out. Short of just complete details of the zones. There are also literally 100's of people trying to be Totalbiscuit right now in the Mists Beta and I have no desire to comb through the good and bad.
This is also part of why I hate do "current" news. Feels like I'm doing the samething as so many other podcasts. So back to stories for me unless I see something I really need to talk about. If you need your lore fix Check out my list of other Warcraft Lore Podcasts. A lot of different favors I dare say they are all better than me .
You all have a good week.

This week I'm joined by Janaell from the 5 WoW Things Podcast to talk about the leader short story Fire and Iron about the leaders of dwarfs of Iron Forge. This one goes off the rails quite a bit and we end up talking about RP and lore of Rift its a fun show if a bit unfocused.
