Exploring the Story – World of Warcraft

I’m not a huge gamer. The most recent systems in our house are a Gamecube, which I’ve had for over 15 years — maybe 20, which is scary — and a PS2, which we just took from my in-laws’ house because my brother-in-law didn’t want it anymore.

However, there are a few games that I will always love to play. The main one, if you hadn’t guessed, is World of Warcraft, an MMORPG that first came out in 2004. I started playing in 2005, and I played off and on until about 2014.

Well, as promised, we’re going to look at yet another region that, while geographically and demographically small, holds enormous sway in Úr’Dan. Continue reading “Exploring Úr’Dan: Naebvael”

Exploring Úr’Dan: The Hundred Teeth

I’ve been watching Planet Eath II on BBC America with Present Wife recently, so I’m inspired to delve into my alternate universe a bit more.

On tonight’s episode… Mountains! What life could survive in some of the most rugged and extreme conditions of Úr’Dan?

Okay, I’ll drop the David Attenborough act, tempting though it is. Continue reading “Exploring Úr’Dan: The Hundred Teeth”
