Enter to win a Spectral Tiger Mount from WoW Insider! {WoW}

Jul 26th 2007 10:41AM I am the Catfish Man, I still need my cat mount!

Forming a solo guild, or teaming up with a microguild {WoW}

Jul 17th 2007 2:04PM I have built a few guilds for alts that just sit around and serve just as a way to keep from getting guild invites and having a cool tabard. When I first started, I got invited to a guild and then the leader quit, leaving me in much the same situation as the OP. Took me a week to find how to /gdisband. I was the laughing stock of my friends for months after. Since then I only join guilds that I actually put some thought into.
@3 All you have to do is go to a low level place, have some guys sign your charter, have them ginvite your alts and then gkick everyone else. Not the nicest thing to do but still gets the job done. In compensation, you can usually keep them happy by giving them a bit of money.

Breakfast Topic: Lore and fantasy comparisons {WoW}

Jul 16th 2007 12:09PM I posted this in the Breakfast topic Is Wow Science Fiction? but I figured it would probably be better here. I feel WoW does draw heavily from several different fantasy worlds but most fantasies do the same. I do see a lot of key things taken from the series "The Wayfarer Redemption" by Sara Douglass. Humans are Xenophobes for the most part, Blood Elves are extremely vain and love magic as do Icarii, Tauren and Night Elves both value the power of the trees and nature and the Night Elves are extremely reclusive and unwilling to fight much like the Avar. Undead can be seen as the villains in books 4-6 (Don't want to spoil in case you read it) in they want to destroy all life by various plagues. There are a lot more similarities but they can be seen as spoilers. Definately worth the read IMO and I am glad to see Blizzard, even if unintentionally, has some parts of this series in their own Warcraft series.

Breakfast Topic: Is WoW science fiction? {WoW}

Jul 16th 2007 11:12AM For all of you screaming "OMG BLIZZARD RIPPED OFF TOLKEIN WTF", I recommend reading "The Wayfarer Redemption" series by Sara Douglass. I just finished it and there are so many things that it seems Blizzard took straight from it. Its a good series too so I'm not really that upset. Kinda made me laugh at some of the similarities between Blood Elves and Night Elves with each of the "Forbidden" races.

Tigole on Zul'Aman: Have fun storming the castle! {WoW}

Jul 12th 2007 4:51PM I am excited to be able to move onto another new 10 man instance. It is alot easier to find a time that is good for 10 guildies than 25.

I also liked Tigole's quote from Princess Bride. Got a laugh out of that.

MMO Champion's Armor Showroom is out {WoW}

Jul 5th 2007 4:02PM
Probably one of the coolest programs. Lets you try on any piece of armor / weapon on any race / gender / design. Its how I made my ninja costume and pirate costume. Now also includes enchants and mounts.

Nintendo's DS Lite getting redesigned? {Engadget}

Jun 20th 2007 2:40PM I would really like to see a slider or button to change the backlight. When lighting conditions change, I hate having to choose between just dealing with it or restarting. Also I think some kind of wifi pictochat would be awesome. It was always fun shooting messages across class but when not at school, it becomes useless. I agree that some sort of media storage would be awesome but I think having the web built in isn't all that important.
