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 […]

Guest Post – Lore based characters who aren’t Mary-Sues
comment 4 Written by on April 9, 2010 – 8:30 am

So! I have been keeping a secret from you guys.

Ok, it’s not really THAT much of a secret. A few weeks back one of the editors for WoW.com contacted me about writing a guest post.

It’s live today, and you can read it here.

The hardest part about doing this was definitely the word count. I had another point I wanted to make, and was already 200 words past my limit.  Oops! Everything else about the process was quite painless, and I’m pretty pleased to see my work tagged around at other places. It’s kind of a cool thing as a writer. 🙂

I hope you enjoy the post, and I’ll have a Friday post up here a little bit later.

If you’re visiting here from WoW.com for the first time via my post today, welcome and hello!


P.S. I didn’t choose the image of Rhonin as the header for the article (I forgot to choose an image. Oops again!), but it cracked me up when I saw it. Tee hee hee.

  1. I enjoyed the article very much. Well done.

    I must admit I’m secretly hoping that they’ll let you take over ‘All the World’s a Stage’. No offense to Mr. Grey, but in my opinion yours is the best article I’ve seen on role playing over there since David Bowers left.

  2. @Carol – Thank you! I’m /very/ flattered, and I’m glad you enjoyed it.

    The advantage I have over the regular WoW.com columnists is that they have to do it on a schedule, where with this article (and with any other guest articles I do), I can make sure I have a topic that both I and the Editors approve of, make sure it’s alright to post, and (as actually happened with this post) get a short extension when I had SURPRISE OUT OF TOWN land in my lap and needed a few extra days. The life of a guest poster is much more relaxed than that of a regular columnist (which is, actually, a lot more like what I do here at Too Many Annas, but even here I have the freedom to say “can’t do it today guys, back tomorrow”).

  3. Good post Anna. I’ll admit my lack of RP understandingness contributed to some mild confusion. Anyway, if you’ve got more to add, there’s nothing to say you can’t do a part 2 extension on your own blog :D.

  4. @Matt – I may just do that! Though on its own it might be a little ranty, so I think it needs to marinate in my brain for a bit longer. Of course, I harp on communication around here… well, all the time, so it won’t be anything new to my readers 😀
