The Liebster Award comes to Orgrimmar

liebsteraward

So this one was a surprise.  Here I was, going through my volumes and volumes of fan mail LIKE I GET ON A DAILY BASIS, and lo and behold, I get a message from someone nominating me for an award.  The someone in question was Myriade, writer of Myriadoscope, and the award in question was something called the Liebster Award, which I didn’t really know anything about at the time but which I could already say with confidence that I DAMN WELL FUCKING DESERVED.

So I did a little looking around to see what the deal was with this award, and what I would need to do to beat out the other nominees to win it, like if there was honorable combat involved because holy crap you know I would be all over that shit, but, come to find out, it doesn’t work that way.  There’s no final WINNER, just a chain of nominees naming other nominees to draw people’s attention to other blogs.  Which is kind of cool, as far as spreading the word about good reads, even if it IS a little hippie for my tastes what with the “we’re all winners!” vibe, which, come on.

Anyway.  Here’s the quasi-official description of the award, which everybody seems to be quoting, because it’s the hip thing to do these days:

Well, it is only an AWESOME award given to up and coming bloggers. Given by other up and coming bloggers. It’s a cool way to find other blogs and feel like you are getting into the blogging stratosphere. It is simple, you get nominated by someone else, mention their page and a link to their blog in your Liebster Award Post, answer the 11 questions they give you, then tag 11 other nominees and give them a new set of 11 questions to answer.

So, as you can see, receiving the nomination means I have some work to do now.  FUCKING AWESOME IDEA FOR AN AWARD, FOLKS, HONOR PEOPLE BY STICKING THEM WITH FUCKING HOMEWORK.  Anyway.  Here are the 11 questions from Myriade:

1.  Favourite race/class in WoW and why?

Quick note on the lingo here: Those of you who aren’t as internet-savvy as yours truly might be a little thrown off by that “WoW” acronym.  Apparently it’s a new thing in online circles to use that as an abbreviation for “Whole of World,” as in, fucking everywhere.  Which, granted, is kind of like how some people will literally say “LOL” now rather than just laughing, which I’ve never really gotten on board with myself, because fuck those assholes.  Anyway.

As for the actual question, I mean, come on, you even need to ask this?  Orc, because what the fuck else would I want to be, and warrior.

2.  Achievement/Title you’re proudest of?

Obviously, the easy answer here is the title of Warchief.  Hard to top that one.  Still, I could probably make a case for Chieftain of the Warsong Clan, since that one came from me pulling my emo head out of my ass to assume my place as leader of our clan and Grom’s successor.

But, nah, I’m still going to go with Warchief.

Although, since I’m probably going to be heading down to Blackrock Mountain soon, I may have to see about picking up [Leeeeeeeeeeeeeroy!] while I’m in the neighborhood.

3.  What’s in your bags (any character, or all of them)?

Huh.  I’m not sure if this is asking about real life, or my Earth Online characters.  I mean, for myself in reality, I don’t really walk around with a whole lot of stuff on me.  (Such as, you know, a shirt.)  I try not to weigh myself down more than I have to, seeing as I need to be ready to leap into action at a moment’s notice, and really, keeping Mannoroth’s tusks balanced on my shoulders can be a tough enough job on its own, without lugging extra crap around with me.

As for my EO toons, hoo boy, they have flat-out TOO MUCH stuff in their bags.  Just tons of random crap, receipts from vendors, little odds and ends that they’ve picked up but aren’t really useful for anything but I still haven’t ever gotten around to tossing.  And by the way, I just have to ask, who the fuck is the psychopath over at Genesis Entertainment who designed the bag system in Earth Online?  Dude, you can’t carry fucking ANYTHING with you!  You pick up like six or seven things, and your bags are full.  Have these game designers never left their houses or something, so they don’t even know about stacks of 20?!

4.  Favourite expansion/instance/boss fight?

Huh.  Another Earth Online question.  Okay.  Well, there’s still plenty of content I’ve never gotten around to, to be honest, but I’m pretty fond of the BlizzCon raid.  It’s always kind of a hoot seeing which random contestant spawns you get in the cosplay gauntlet leading up to the Joker Jay <Host with the Mohr– er, Most> boss.  But I think my favorite encounter is the Lore Panel council fight — you know, the one with the lead quest design guy, and the historian adds, and most of all the council leader guy, Chris what’s-his-face, the dude with the beard who kinda sounds like Varian.  I LOVE getting to run up and smack that guy in the face.  Especially if it’s one of those pulls where he randomly mind controls me for a minute and makes to do some shit that doesn’t make a damn bit of sense.

5.  Pet peeve in WoW?

Wait, you want me to narrow this down to one?  I don’t know about that.  But here’s a few, off the top of my head:

Humans.

Gnomes. OMFG gnomes.

Whoever it is who keeps using the last of the toilet paper in the Grommash Hold outhouse and not putting out a new roll.  (Your Warchief does NOT like having to do the Waddle of Shame over to the storage shed.)

Dontrag.

Utvoch.

“There”/”their”/”they’re”.  Because FUCK YOU, internet:

grammar

Varian, especially the way he keeps breathing.

Being corrected on which one is Dontrag and which one is Utvoch, as if anybody really gives a shit.

6.  What inspired your blog?

I think I mentioned this way back in my first post.  It all got started when Eitrigg recommended I take up blogging.  He said I might find it a helpful outlet, to talk about what’s on my mind, keep a running record of my experiences, all that sort of thing.  I think he figured it would give me a chance to reflect more, and think about situations before acting.  Or some lazy old man shit like that.  Anyway, that’s how it got started, and it’s just been a gravy train of awesome since then.  AREN’T YOU LUCKY.

7.  Favourite blog-related moment?

Umm… Well, considering I detail almost everything that happens to me here, pretty much any moment from the last couple of years would be a blog-related moment, right?  Gotta say, that one mailbag where Windblossom wrote in about clocking Varian still gives me all kinds of happy.  Memory lane:

fyv

I’m sure there others.  I might point out others as I think of them.

8.  One thing you can’t live without?

Okay, okay, go ahead and make your joke about lemon squares.

Real answer?  Sappy as it sounds, Gorehowl.  Not even for what an awesome weapon it is, either.  Having it with me is like a constant, living (but not) reminder of where I’ve come from, of the legacy of my father and the resilience of the Horde, of everything our people have endured and overcome.  Having it with me is like a validation of our kind.  Like a little part of Grom is still here, watching what he enabled us to become.

9.  Place you’d most like to visit?

Hmm.  You know, I’ve gotten around a whole lot the last few years, between the Northrend campaign, and all my inspection visits around Azeroth, and now all our work in Pandaria…  I’m not sure if there’s really anywhere I haven’t gotten to see at this point, other than, like, other planets and shit.  Or, say, getting to see places I know, like back home on Draenor, back before things got all fucked up.  But that would be changing WHERE I’d most like to visit to WHEN I’d most like to visit, which is cheating, for one thing, and also, FUCKING TIME TRAVEL.

10.  Favourite fictional character?

At the risk of being repetitive, this guy:

metzen

I mean, can you imagine if someone like that actually existed?

11.  Soundtrack to your life?

Well, most days, when things are going fairly well, it’s pretty much this:

 

 

But there’s also this:

 

 

And this:

 

 

(Also, in that one, note the Mortimer cameo at 3:24!)

And, let’s face it, given the clowns I usually have surrounding me, some days I feel like it might as well be this:

 

 

And last but not least, if I’m honest, when I’m in one of my more puckish moods, this:

 

 

Also, the kazzoo?  That’s totally me.

 

So, next up.  This is the part where I’m supposed to link 11 more blogs, and give those bloggers 11 questions of their own to answer.  One problem, though — I was going back through some blogs to tag, and while there are a few that still haven’t gotten a nomination already, for every one I found that no one had gotten to, there were like 10 would-be nominees that were already off the table.  So, you know, if you do the math there, that means that in order to pull together my 11, I would have to rifle through something like 110 blogs, and, I mean…I’m just way too lazy for that shit.  I mean really.

SO.  Here’s where I cheat a little and change things up, so I can still do some tagging and point some attention to some worthy bloggers, while also indulging my laziness.  STAND BACK, BITCHES, because your Warchief is about to flip the script like Lor’themar flips benches.

SO, here’s the deal.  I’m still going to toss out 11 questions to be answered, but instead of scraping together a blog list to tag, I am tagging…YOU.  That’s right, you — if you’re reading this post, consider yourself tagged, so you scroll your ass right down to the comments and post a reply with your 11 answers.  NO DUCKING OUT ON THIS COMMAND FROM YOUR WARCHIEF, PEOPLE.  Especially if you’re one of my regular readers and commenters — I know you’re out there, and I know who you are, and most importantly I KNOW WHERE MANY OF YOU LIVE.

And now, the questions.  READ ’EM AND WEEP.

  1. Do you write a blog?  Link it here if so!
  2. What was the first Azerothian blog you ever read?  Was there an early memorable post that hooked you?
  3. Recommended reading, part one!  Link and endorse three bloggers that you’d encourage your fellow readers and minions should check out.
  4. Recommended reading, part two — link one single post, from wherever, that makes you think “OMG, people HAVE to read this.”
  5. How long have you been reading the Command Board?  What post or storyline was your jumping-on point?
  6. One more chance for shameless self-promotion: Are you on Twitter?  Give yourself a non-Friday #FF here if so.  Also feel free to recommend a few accounts worth following.
  7. What class do you play on Earth Online?  (Don’t try to deny that you play.  I know my readers.)
  8. What real-life ability to do you wish your Earth Online character could use?
  9. Here, I’ll throw a bone to Utvoch.  The age-old hoof question: Fem-taur or draenei girls?
  10. Whose head would you rather have on a pike, Varian’s or Magatha’s?
  11. If the world were going to end (or change substantially) in, say, oh, six months or so, what would be your bucket list of things you’d want to get done first?

There, you have your assignment.  Get to it!  YOUR WARCHIEF HAS SPOKEN.

  3. A Concerned Citizen Says:

    1) I blog in-character here: http://timsthoughtfulspot.blogspot.com
    2) Oh, man, that was a long time ago and I’ve slept since then. Probably WoW Insider? Or that one that Sargeras (allegedly) wrote.
    3) More EO goodness: http://www.artofmanliness.com http://qntm.org http://projectrho.com (you could lose yourself for HOURS in that last one)
    4) Start here and read the whole thing … when you have time. It’s quite long. http://qntm.org/unbelievable
    5) Since October 2011, the Mailbag.
    6) I also tweet in-character, @McGahaTim. @Seanbabydotcom is usually pretty funny. @SciAm is usually pretty interesting.
    7) Aerospace Engineer. These days, I usually rock the flight controls/handling qualities build.
    8) It’s a toss-up between Divine Shield and Lay On Hands.
    9) Draenei, without a doubt.
    10) Is it asking too much for both?
    11) Go BASE jumping off that really big totem in Thunder Bluff.

  4. 1. Do you write a blog? Link it here if so!

    Well, I have a blog, but I haven’t posted anything since… Aug. 30. Hmm… I should really start writing again. If anyone cares, the url is http://blogofthetreant.wordpress.com/

    2. What was the first Azerothian blog you ever read? Was there an early memorable post that hooked you?

    I honestly don’t remember the first Azerothian blog I read… I’m sure it was druid-related though.

    3. Recommended reading, part one! Link and endorse three bloggers that you’d encourage your fellow readers and minions should check out.

    Really hard to narrow it down to just three… Let’s see here…
    – That Was an Accident, http://mechalis.wordpress.com/, written by Prinnie Powah. Consistently hilarious.
    http://tomeoftheancient.wordpress.com/ Sweet, funny, awesome.
    http://repgrind.wordpress.com/ Also awesome!

    4. Recommended reading, part two — link one single post, from wherever, that makes you think “OMG, people HAVE to read this.”

    http://iam.yellingontheinternet.com/2014/01/29/raid-awareness-is-a-learned-and-practiced-skill/ Excellent post for anyone who raids at any level, or would like to raid, or thinks they aren’t good enough to raid. (Spoiler Alert: Nobody started out “good enough” to raid.)

    5. How long have you been reading the Command Board? What post or storyline was your jumping-on point?

    Um… I’ve been here since before the first post was written! In fact, turning this into a blog was my idea! Averry and I were joking around about how stupid Garrosh was, and it was hilarious, so I told Averry he HAD to turn it into a blog! The rest is history.

    6. One more chance for shameless self-promotion: Are you on Twitter? Give yourself a non-Friday #FF here if so. Also feel free to recommend a few accounts worth following.

    I have a twitter account, but I haven’t used it in ages. I find twitter a bit exhausting, what with the constant updates from hundreds of people in no particular order, and how do you guys even manage to follow the conversations, omg, brain asplode! People do occasionally still follow me, which boggles my mind, because I haven’t tweeted anything in a million years. But if you really want to, you can find me @Khizzara

    7. What class do you play on Earth Online? (Don’t try to deny that you play. I know my readers.)

    Housewife, Gamer. I’ve dabbled in many other classes though.

    8. What real-life ability to do you wish your Earth Online character could use?

    Flying. Seriously, why can’t we fly in EO? Airplanes don’t count, they’re soooo inconvenient. And what’s with all the extra security they added a few patches ago?

    9. Here, I’ll throw a bone to Utvoch. The age-old hoof question: Fem-taur or draenei girls?

    Um, we prefer to be called Tauren. >:(

    10. Whose head would you rather have on a pike, Varian’s or Magatha’s?

    Magatha.

    11. If the world were going to end (or change substantially) in, say, oh, six months or so, what would be your bucket list of things you’d want to get done first?

    As of two days ago I would have said, “Finish getting all gold challenge modes”, but I got the last one on Saturday! :D Right now I guess that leaves me with trying to finish off all the heroic raid content, leveling my future boost baby to 60 so I can get free professions, and maybe trying for the Proven Healer title in the proving grounds.

      There’s an EO patch for that, but it’s difficult to install correctly. Be sure to back up your files first…

  6. 1. Do you write a blog? Link it here if so!

    –Sadly, no.

    2. What was the first Azerothian blog you ever read? Was there an early memorable post that hooked you?

    –Probably either Blessing of Kings or Kurn’s Corner. (Technically, my main [not Cygnia] is a pally, so I was looking for any and all advice.)

    –Honestly? I’d rather talk to them as individuals first…

    –Finishing up some archaeology digs would be up there. (Not to mention FINALLY getting Cygnia up to 90 properly, ie. no insta-boost)

  7. 1. I do, in fact! http://shadopanshammy.wordpress.com/ I am just getting started out, though, so there is only the one post.

    2. I started off with reading Orcish Army Knife, and the posts that drew me in were the “Letters” series of blogs that kind young orc ran about the travels in Northrend and the world after it shattered again.

    4. http://textsfromazeroth.tumblr.com/post/63465804625/i-never-had-the-luxury-of-sleeping-through-times#notes This entire blog, really. Although they had some odd things to say about our Warchief…

    5. I started sometime in 2013. I cannot remember which post. All I knew is that I had to read the whole thing to get caught up and got hooked.

    6. I am! My twitter is ShadoPanShammy and I do add things from time to time. As for the FF, RuekieShaman! We wielders of the elements have to stick together!

    7. Cat herder, retail slave, perpetual student. They’re difficult but rewarding, especially when the feline minions decide to come cuddle with your toon.

    8. Definitely Wind Shear. You never know when you need a gust of wind to silence your foes!

    9. I like both equally, although I seem to enjoy spending time with the Tauren more. The Draenei act strangely and scream “RACE TRAITOR!” at me whenever I come near. I wonder why that is…

    10. Magatha. Hands down.

    11. I would like to explore all of it before it changes, either for better or worse.

    • For those of you curious, I play on Snyder-Kalimdor. That server is a bit of a dump, though. Reminds me of the in-game zone, Detroit, even if my toons have their in-game equal to hearthstones outside of it. It’s much prettier when you get out of there.

  8. 1. Do you write a blog? Link it here if so!

    N/A

    2. What was the first Azerothian blog you ever read? Was there an early memorable post that hooked you?

    I tink der was one earlier than da Warchief blog, but I dunno what da name was.

    Nah. Dis social media stuff just ain’t mah ting.

    I ain’t chosen one yet. Der be a wide field and I dunno what I want.

    8. What real-life ability to do you wish your Earth Online character could use?

    I guess conjuring food. Cooking in “real time” be a hassle — I do dat already in real life.

    9. Here, I’ll throw a bone to Utvoch. The age-old hoof question: Fem-taur or draenei girls?

    I don’t tink I’m da right gender ta answer dat. >_>

    10. Whose head would you rather have on a pike, Varian’s or Magatha’s?

    Magatha. Dat witch be more unpredictable than a lotta ol’ enemies I can tink of. ‘Sides, McChin ain’t goin’ anywhere.

    11. If the world were going to end (or change substantially) in, say, oh, six months or so, what would be your bucket list of things you’d want to get done first?

    I start visiting ol’ haunts first. Chat up ol’ buddies. Guess it don’t matter much, though, cuz DARKSPEAR NEVAH DIE! *cue cymbals*

  9. Oh, this looks like fun!

    1. Do you write a blog? Link it here if so!
    No. :( No one will let me use their computer long enough!

    There’s MORE? Where?

    I, uh. I don’t know. Mr Warchief is pretty funny sometimes though!

    5. How long have you been reading the Command Board? What post or storyline was your jumping-on point?
    Someone told me about your first visit to Mylune!

    6. One more chance for shameless self-promotion: Are you on Twitter? Give yourself a non-Friday #FF here if so. Also feel free to recommend a few accounts worth following.
    What’s Twitter?

    7. What class do you play on Earth Online? (Don’t try to deny that you play. I know my readers.)
    No one lets me play! I think the Student class looks neat, though, from what Mr U has told me.

    8. What real-life ability to do you wish your Earth Online character could use?
    I would feel so weird if I couldn’t shapeshift.

    9. Here, I’ll throw a bone to Utvoch. The age-old hoof question: Fem-taur or draenei girls?
    ..um, what?

    10. Whose head would you rather have on a pike, Varian’s or Magatha’s?
    Why are we putting people’s heads on pikes? That sounds mean!

    11. If the world were going to end (or change substantially) in, say, oh, six months or so, what would be your bucket list of things you’d want to get done first?
    I want to learn everything and go everywhere and meet everyone!

  10. ((AHAHA this was such a fun read – that Gaston parody made me laugh so hard! :D))

  11. 1.Do you write a blog? Link it here if so!
    -No. I don’t….at least, not yet.

    2.What was the first Azerothian blog you ever read? Was there an early memorable post that hooked you?
    -The Warchief Command Board. It was something about lemonsquares.

    -Varok Saurfang joins Earth Online in Roundhouse Cleave to the Face episode: http://commandboard.wordpress.com/2012/08/01/roundhouse-cleave-to-the-face/

    5.How long have you been reading the Command Board? What post or storyline was your jumping-on point?
    – Ummm. I think its been…two years now? I don’t particularly remember when I jumped on, but I blame the lemon squares and Twitter for luring me in.

    6.One more chance for shameless self-promotion: Are you on Twitter? Give yourself a non-Friday #FF here if so. Also feel free to recommend a few accounts worth following.
    – Twitter. Oh my goodness. Yes. I’m on Twitter. A lot. @rakaelwhispers, a human paladin who has a great fondness for Varian Wrynn. (Shut up, Garrosh)

    A few worth noting – of course, all our friends from the blog and our lovable characters from the blog.
    – @garroshhllscrm (of course)
    – @Dontrag_Utvoch, cause you never know what they are going to say.
    – @ruekieshaman, one of the DPS kids and has a chronic problem of saying the right thing the wrong way.
    -@myGarona because…umm.

    7.What class do you play on Earth Online? (Don’t try to deny that you play. I know my readers.) Yes, I play. Totally immersed in this universe as a stay-at-home Mom of one married to a cross-country trucker. Has two dogs and a cat.

    8.What real-life ability to do you wish your Earth Online character could use?
    Conjuring meals.

    9.Here, I’ll throw a bone to Utvoch. The age-old hoof question: Fem-taur or draenei girls?
    Neither.

    Varian.

    10.Whose head would you rather have on a pike, Varian’s or Magatha’s?

    Magatha’s. She a traitor.

    11.If the world were going to end (or change substantially) in, say, oh, six months or so, what would be your bucket list of things you’d want to get done first?

    Write a book.

    Paint, draw, and just make stuff like crazy.

  12. 1 Do you write a blog? Link it here if so!
    I write an EO blog based on my exploits in game but I have been so busy with the Panderan campaign that I have not updated it in a looong time so I am not going to link it.

    2 What was the first Azerothian blog you ever read? Was there an early memorable post that hooked you?

    The Warcraft Hunter’s Union was my first blog that I read. I wanted to figure out how to be a better hunter and even though this guy is a smelly dwarf hunter he had some great ideas on how to improve. I am sure he would have tightened his blog security if he had realized that he was helping Horde hunters be awesome as well as the alliance hunters.

    3 Recommended reading, part one! Link and endorse three bloggers that you’d encourage your fellow readers and minions should check out.
    WHU has gone defunct and I have gotten busy with my ever growing responsibilities with the Horde army so my time to read blogs has been limited to reading here. It is part of the job to keep up with what the Warchief wants of me.

    4 Recommended reading, part two — link one single post, from wherever, that makes you think “OMG, people HAVE to read this.”

    It is hard to choose only one glorious post from this blog to single out. You are such an amazing writer that I can’t just pick one.

    5 How long have you been reading the Command Board? What post or storyline was your jumping-on point?

    I have been reading since it was announced on Earth Online Insider. I knew that I would need to keep up with it if I wanted to get ahead in the army.

    6 One more chance for shameless self-promotion: Are you on Twitter? Give yourself a non-Friday #FF here if so. Also feel free to recommend a few accounts worth following.

    I have two twitters or pet birds, well they screech more than they twitter. I like to use them to snatch the weapons out of the hands of the idiot alliance soldiers. They get all freaked out when they get a face full of feathers and suddenly it is all where the hell is my sword and finally an arrow to the chest ends the confusion.

    7 What class do you play on Earth Online? (Don’t try to deny that you play. I know my readers.)
    I play a Stay at Home Mother. I don’t plan on having any of my own kids so I thought it would be funny to have a minion class. She has 4 minions and is partnered with an IT male. He is a bit useless at times though, it would be so much easier if the minions could go to the orphanage.

    8 What real-life ability to do you wish your Earth Online character could use?

    Camouflage. It would be so nice for her to be able to hide when her minions got whiny and annoying. Kill command would not be too bad either.

    9 Here, I’ll throw a bone to Utvoch. The age-old hoof question: Fem-taur or draenei girls?

    I am not into girls, I don’t swing that way. Orc men are the only ones for me.

    10 Whose head would you rather have on a pike, Varian’s or Magatha’s?

    Magtha’s because you could BBQ the rest of her and get a nice meal out of it. Human meat tastes disgusting.

    11 If the world were going to end (or change substantially) in, say, oh, six months or so, what would be your bucket list of things you’d want to get done first?

    I have done just about everything I can think of. I would be pretty excited if the world did change soon, things are getting a bit stale,

  13. Wotcha!

    1. Do you write a blog? Link it here if so!

    Been there, done that. It’s been on hold for awhile. Sometimes I think about another rant about important stuff like HOW I WAS WRONGED AND MY MAN RAN OFF AND JOINED THE DEFIAS BANDITS AND THEN I GOT KILLED BY ZOMBIES. Then I remember I got more important things to do like get my chainsaw certificate.

    (It was never IC which is a great shame really :) http://spinksville.wordpress.com/)

    2. What was the first Azerothian blog you ever read? Was there an early memorable post that hooked you?

    Pink Pigtail Inn. http://pinkpigtailinn.blogspot.co.uk/

    3. Recommended reading, part one! Link and endorse three bloggers that you’d encourage your fellow readers and minions should check out.

    Not reading many WoW blogs right now. Everyone should read Captain Awkward though. http://captainawkward.com/

    4. Recommended reading, part two — link one single post, from wherever, that makes you think “OMG, people HAVE to read this.”

    Scourge chat log! http://www.cwsargeras.blogspot.co.uk/2009/03/scourge-chat-log-1.html

    5. How long have you been reading the Command Board? What post or storyline was your jumping-on point?

    It was the one recommended by Sargeras.

    @copperbird

    7. What class do you play on Earth Online? (Don’t try to deny that you play. I know my readers.)

    There ain’t much call for undead warriors in EO so I went for next best option, social worker.

    8. What real-life ability to do you wish your Earth Online character could use?

    Confession.

    9. Here, I’ll throw a bone to Utvoch. The age-old hoof question: Fem-taur or draenei girls?

    Yeah no.

    10. Whose head would you rather have on a pike, Varian’s or Magatha’s?

    Varian because the pike’s up his ass anyway.

    11. If the world were going to end (or change substantially) in, say, oh, six months or so, what would be your bucket list of things you’d want to get done first?

    Track down Mr Spinks and file for child support (there aren’t any but he don’t know that, it’s the spirit of the thing). Then open another pub but this time with less rotting bar staff.

  14. Do you write a blog?
    — Nope.

    What was the first Azerothian blog you ever read?
    — Hmm… I think Land of Odd (landofodd.wordpress.com) when it was still WoW-focused (“Oddcraft”). Still in my bookmarks but I haven’t read that blog in a very long time.

    Recommended reading, part one! Link and endorse three bloggers that you’d encourage your fellow readers and minions should check out.
    — Uh… there was a travel blog hosted by a Forsaken that was pretty epic. He finished it in Cataclysm, I think. Don’t recall the name. Obviously, people should also be reading the Command Board.

    Recommended reading, part two — link one single post, from wherever, that makes you think “OMG, people HAVE to read this.”
    http://childrenofwrath.blogspot.com/2011/10/misteps-in-cataclysm-misfired-story.html Very much applicable to today.
    — BONUS! http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/689927-Jaina-Proudmoore

    How long have you been reading the Command Board? What post or storyline was your jumping-on point?
    — Near the beginning? I think when your mailbag got ‘trall’-ed. (lol)

    One more chance for shameless self-promotion: Are you on Twitter? Give yourself a non-Friday #FF here if so. Also feel free to recommend a few accounts worth following.
    — @AliokWOWDB. I don’t use twitter too much, though. I’m a professional lurker. Also, I am going to cop-out and just link to the list of accounts I follow. https://twitter.com/AliokWOWDB/following

    What class do you play on Earth Online? (Don’t try to deny that you play. I know my readers.)
    — Network specialist. Kinda like Spazzle, except my character is taller and not green.

    What real-life ability to do you wish your Earth Online character could use?
    — I was going to say teleporting or invisibility, but screw it – I’d want my character to be able to conjure food and water.

    Here, I’ll throw a bone to Utvoch. The age-old hoof question: Fem-taur or draenei girls?
    — Troll. Once you go troll… ;)

    Whose head would you rather have on a pike, Varian’s or Magatha’s?
    — Magatha, no contest. She’s evil. Varian’s a huntard in comparison.

    If the world were going to end (or change substantially) in, say, oh, six months or so, what would be your bucket list of things you’d want to get done first? …*starts blushing* *like really, really blushing with a dreamy smile on her face*

  15. Beshara Says:

    I know it’s late, but I’m doing it anyway.

    Do you write a blog? Link it here if so!
    Nope. Never enough time. Thought about it at one point, but it wasn’t for me.

    What was the first Azerothian blog you ever read? Was there an early memorable post that hooked you?
    Big Bear Butt. I don’t remember a specific post hooking me to his blog. I think it is more his style of writing about his excitement and the good times gaming with his son.

    And this one are the three I still keep up with after retiring from the war.

    How long have you been reading the Command Board? What post or storyline was your jumping-on point?
    Umm…I think I started reading when Mylune was first encountered in Hyjal, however long that has been.

    One more chance for shameless self-promotion: Are you on Twitter? Give yourself a non-Friday #FF here if so.
    Used to be, but I let it go inactive

    What class do you play on Earth Online? (Don’t try to deny that you play. I know my readers.)
    Working mom entering the Terrible Twos level on the home side, trying to spec into IT tech on the work side.

    What real-life ability to do you wish your Earth Online character could use?
    Portals. Travel just takes too long some days on Earth.

    Here, I’ll throw a bone to Utvoch. The age-old hoof question: Fem-taur or draenei girls?
    Draenei

    Whose head would you rather have on a pike, Varian’s or Magatha’s?
    Magatha

    If the world were going to end (or change substantially) in, say, oh, six months or so, what would be your bucket list of things you’d want to get done first?
    I think I’ve done all I care to in Azeroth. I spend my time playing Hearthstone now. Man that game is addictive, especially now that it’s on the iPad.
