It didn’t take long to get from Thunder Bluff to the Echo Isles – Ankona took advantage of a wyvern so she could think and plan before getting to her destination. She had information to confirm with the spirits – was Gromnor dead? Was he really in the northern part of the Eastern Kingdoms, somewhere […]

WoW as an agent of Counterterrorism?
comment 1 Written by on March 26, 2008 – 8:54 am


So, the study of Warcraft as a miniature reality has happened before, when the Corrupted Blood bug caused what was essentially a controlled virtual epidemic. Scientists used the reactions of players and servers as a way to study how disease spreads – obviously taken with a grain of salt – and garnered some usable data based on what the players’ responses to a virtual Black Death had been.

In this case, though, I think you need more than a grain of salt. Maybe a shaker? Or a wheelbarrow?

Why? Because this time, rather than studying the effects of a disease on the players affected by it, they’re attempting to link such things as Corrupted Blood and the Baron Geddon “Bomb” effect to the players who are doing the exploding/infecting.

Gearing up the Anna-tard*
comment 2 Written by on March 24, 2008 – 8:57 am

Angoleth has been 70 for a little bit now, wearing AH greens and random quest rewards, and slowly plodding along working on her leatherworking skill. Sadly, trying to get a bunch of instance runs together for your (undergeared) huntard alt when you have two other characters already keyed for Karazhan proved to be rather difficult. I snuck into Shadow Lab after a friend cleared the place out to get that fragment but hadn’t made any progress on the other two.

Dear Vashj…

letter I know that you’re busy being the leader of all those Naga, plotting to take over the world with Kael, and sucking all the water out of Zangarmarsh and stuff, but do you think maybe you could pass around a few new pieces of gear to some of your lieutenants?

I really don’t think that The Lurker Below has any actual *feet* to speak of… so I promise he doesn’t need mail healing boots anymore. Especially since he’s been donating a pair to our void crystal stash every week. Tidewalker doesn’t really need any more mage trinkets either, come to think of it.

The Stink Eye, Part II: You remind me of the babe

August 4, 2015 – 12:22 pm

An old story, reposted here as I’m shaking the mothballs off Ankona and needed an easy way to show people a little bit about the (batshit) things she gets up to. Enjoy, and don’t be too creeped out!

It really …

Very First Impressions

November 14, 2014 – 7:32 am

So I haven’t finished the intro quests yet (the server queues from the reduced server capacity due to the DDOS attacks meant I only got about an hour to play yesterday), but I’m finding that Draenor is pretty cool so …

A Girl and her Dog

November 13, 2014 – 12:30 pm

The morning of the all hands summon to the Blasted Lands, Aely went for a walk. The late fall air was clear and cool, and leaves crunched under their feet in the less-traveled parts of the streets. She and Roger …

Counting down to Warlords

November 11, 2014 – 3:09 pm

What a long strange trip it’s been. I’ll be the first to admit that, at the beginning, I wasn’t sure Pandaria was going to be for me. I’ve made clear my dislike of daily quests, and that seemed to be …

Squire Benjamin William Sullivan stood in the middle of Light’s Hope Chapel in his underpants.

Actually, it was white linen pants and a shift, but the effect was approximately the same. The little chapel was warm, on the edge of …

Introducing the Newest Anna

June 29, 2014 – 4:39 pm

So I’m not really in a position where I should be creating alts. This, of course, does nothing to deter me from making alts when the inspiration strikes. I’ve been really enjoying my Alliance hunter, and she’s my raiding main …

Bad things are happening in Stormwind – and beyond.

The Hand of Lothar, they call themselves.

Yva Darrows was their first target.

Tirith and Aely were their second and third.

They have since… expanded their reach and escalated their methods …
