She was barely fifty years old* when she took her first – a contract handed out in Everlook, though how she’d ended up in that godsforsaken ice-sheet she couldn’t be sure. It was a simple thing to kill the woman listed on the paper she had signed. Anryl had no idea what Telwae Lightsorrow had […]

It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad Monday
comment 4 Written by on August 31, 2009 – 9:32 am

I’m fighting with the “I have too much I want to do and not enough time to do it” problem with WoW lately.  I’ve got four – maybe even FIVE – characters I’m in the process of leveling, and I can’t seem to stick with one for any extended amount of time.

Add to that the fact that I’m somehow busier without a job than I was when I was writing part-time so I’m not in game as much… and I end up a somewhat frustrated Anna!

Here’s what’s been going on though:

  • Annie Mae is level 55, completely done with Un’Goro, and will be finishing up Burning Steppes (only 2 quests now, no more Onyxia questline :( ) before heading up to Felwood –> Winterspring (hooray Timbermaw Rep) and the Plaguelands.  I’m going to try to hit 59, if not 60 in the old world before heading to Outland, since that speeds things along nicely once I get there.
  • Anaje is working her way through the Southern Barrens.  I may detour back to do some starting zones for rep/loremaster reasons, but for now she’s chugging along nicely.
  • Anaelle is still 75, Angoleth is still juuuuust shy of 71, and Annylais is still 63.  I guess that means I’ve got my current alts picked out!
  • Thanks to some happy coincidences, Annie Mae has a story in progress, as well as a drawing commission that will probably be up in the next month or so.  Woo!
  • I’m <thisclose> to having my new Argent Crusade tabard – at which point I get to start working towards the Pony Up achievement.
  • Aely had good fun at the Rose Ball on Friday, though the idea of “dressing up” finally wigged her out to the point that she just wore her shiny purple dress armor instead of an actual, you know, /dress/.  She did wear her hair down though!
  • It’s really weird to log into a character that’s had a major hairstyle change!
  • I’m off to get my house ready to be invaded by crazy people with sewing machines tonight.  I’m feeding them lasagna.  I’m not sure if that’s the appropriate food for crazy people with sewing machines, but I figure it’ll do.
Heroic Deadmines?

Gryphonheart, over at The Lion Guard, has a hilarious post up on how to make Heroic Deadmines more heroic.

Some weeks you’re the pigeon…
comment 1 Written by on August 28, 2009 – 9:16 am

Other weeks, you’re the statue.

TRI logged in last night, ready to pwn some nubs in the Coliseum and face down some Twin Valkyr.

Everyone groups up, we take out Northrend Beasts… and anyone in the raid living in Washington or Oregon crashes.  And can’t get back online.  7 people down, including three healers and two raid officers.

Wait 20 minutes?  Still no dice.

In a raid that only works 2 nights a week, for a total of 7 hours, getting your night ruined by a login server crash is a major setback.  We won’t see the new boss in ToC this week – and not for anything we can have done about it.

So!  In an attempt to cheer myself up about it, I’m accepting suggestions for tonight’s server-wide RP event, the 6th (ish) Annual Rose Ball!

Should I bring Aely?  Or Annie Mae?  And what should she wear?

Wallpapers Wanted
comment 21 Written by on August 27, 2009 – 8:36 am

In light of the upcoming changes to the Old World, I’m setting out to finish up the Wallpaper project.  You can see what I’ve done so far here.

If anyone has suggestions of particularly picturesque places for me to use, please let me know.  I’d like this to be a good tour of all the places that make Kalimdor, Eastern Kingdoms, Outland, and Northrend particularly beautiful, so I’m happy to head out to any spot on any continent!

Leave your suggestions or places you’d like to see in the comments, and I’ll post again when I upload another batch!

Descent and Ascent

September 8, 2015 – 9:51 pm

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 – …

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!

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 …

Elevation

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 …
