Don't get me wrong, I didn't mean that as a dig against you personally, nor am I offended by it. You're not the first person to use the term, however and it makes me cringe every time I see it. While "band of adventurers" may technically fit the description, to me it's like throwing Mall Security into the same Category as the Navy Seals. I don't know, I suppose it just doesn't conjur the same mental imagery for me as it does for other people. I've always felt that it kind of dumbs down the context when Algalon has to report in to the Pantheon and tell them that a random group of adventurers kicked his butt back to the cosmos or a bunch of people looking for a good time went in to ICC and tore apart the most powerful mortal being on Azeroth. When Deathwing - the one who conned all of the aspects and stole their power, merged the Elemental Plane with Azeroth (literally tearing the world apart in the process), and threatens all life - gets taken down by "a band of adventurers" . . . eh. Whatever, though. I'm just nitpicking. The KYL articles are always a great read and this was no exception.
