15 Minutes of Fame is our look at World of Warcraft players of all shapes and sizes – both the renowned and the relatively anonymous.
In last month's Confessions of a Teenage Warlock, we saw a well spoken, capable, creative young man out representing for the legion of teenagers who play WoW without dragging everyone else on the server down to the level of Barrens chat. "He's nothing special!" cried some readers in the comments – and rightly so. Seldorm's not the youngest player, or the most uber player or even the most outspoken player. In fact, you might most accurately characterize Seldorm as the poster boy for "normal" WoW-playing teens who don't make little worgs of themselves online. (There are more of them than you think!)
This week's 15 Minutes of Fame looks at another young WoW player – "young" being the operative word. Under the protective wing of his parents, Zeshon began serious raiding in Karazhan last summer at the age of 10. Now 11 years old, he's filling in as a DPS sub in his guild's Serpentshrine Cavern raids, studying boss strats ... and getting his homework done and to bed on time. We talked with Zeshon and his mom, Melynthris, to see how the family that raids together, stays together.
