Death Yield

Wednesday, August 29th, 2007

With Max 'Expendable' Redshirt turning up asking for a progress report from the councillor, we let him know what little we've found out. Our main hope of getting closer to the political mind behind the possible revolt is still fighting as gladiators in the arena in the hopes that the currently sole agitator sees the […]

Rolling High Gets You Anywhere

Wednesday, August 29th, 2007

An old player who left the group because of moving overseas popped back in to the country and came along to a session to catch up with everyone. We kept our current campaign running and the GM had to think of some way to weave him in to the story temporarily. We start playing, and […]

Loot: Leaving it All Behind

Monday, August 20th, 2007

There are some obvious problems with loot, and Melmoth covers many of the more absurd properties in the World of Warcraft system in one of his wonderful stories. He misses at least two aspects that are peculiar to loot and drops. One is how certain creatures don't drop body parts consistently. Using a boar as […]

Gladiators Ready!

Thursday, August 16th, 2007

With Plan B out of the way, the party signs up to become a gladiator team in the arena, without yours truly for the good of the team. After a couple of days preparation, which pretty much consisted of trying to acquire tremorsense and staying away from the toxic booze in the only inn in […]

Plan B From Out 'er Face

Thursday, August 16th, 2007

As a group, we are discussing our options on how best to infiltrate what on the surface appears to be some rabble-rousing but we have been told is part of a greater plan of sedition against the city state. As the sedition is being spread primarily at the gladiatorial arena, and it is believed that […]

Requiem for a Dungeon

Friday, August 10th, 2007

Stratholme, the Scholomance, Blackrock Spire and Dire Maul are all lost. Just before Burning Crusade was released some friends came out of retirement and sharpened their blades again, to get ready for the opening of the dark portal to the Outlands, and we entered some of the level 60 dungeons. I had visited them many […]

Making Use of Idle Time

Thursday, August 9th, 2007

'You're back at the inn, what would you like to do?' 'Acquire tremorsense!' '...realistically.' 'Try to acquire tremorsense?' '<sigh>'

The Trouble With Tradeskills

Tuesday, August 7th, 2007

The new World of Warcraft expansion, Wrath of the Lich King, has been announced, and like The Burning Crusade the level cap will be increased another ten levels. This means that tradeskills will be increased, because no one will want to craft level 70 items at level 80. I imagine that this will also mean […]

Hit Me With the Nerf Bat

Sunday, August 5th, 2007

I picked up playing my now-neglected warlock, if only for a change of pace. I ran around completing some familiar quests in Hellfire Peninsula, for he is only level 61, not having been played much since the release of The Burning Crusade. When I was playing my warrior a few weeks back I remember seeing […]
