Warcraft Summer 2020 – Beach

This week is about the beach. I have many favourite beaches in real life because I love just sitting on the sand listening to the waves and enjoying the salt smell which permeates the air. Many years ago when I lived in Sydney I would regularly drive from my share house in Allambie Heights to …

Warcraft Summer 2020 – Summer Outfit

But…it is Winter? Yeah I know 🙂 I thought why not, it gives me at least one post for each week and it can be a little fun I am sure 🙂 Fair warning I am only likely going to be posting screenshots since I cannot draw, doodle or render in any way. I might …

Two things on my mind

Firstly, I am sorry to anyone who has ever been abused or harassed by people in the industry. I am horrified at the pure number of stories being told, not even touching on the content of some of those stories. It is heartbreaking that people who want to be involved in a hobby they love, …

What happened?

My long time readers will know I try, to the best of my abilities, not to shitcan or badmouth WoW or Blizzard too much. There has been a few negative posts and talk etc but I hope I have managed to limit it over the years. I love this game and I want to be …

The literal fortnight from hell

After last week’s raid I was pretty much on a high, but I need to step back and start at the monday for you to understand the absolute crapper of a fortnight we have had. There are definitely some major positives in there as well, which is what makes the negative so much worse. The …

Whispers of War Podcast – featuring moi :)

You might remember a few months back I mentioned I was doing an interview for a podcast, well – it is now out and I am too scared too listen to it incase I sound like a right royal looney bin!! So since I am too chicken, I expect all of you to listen and …

Rainbow Blaugust

I am sure you are all sick to death of Blaugust, which is why I thought I would have a wee break before posting this one. The complete write up of who participated and how many posts they managed can be found by clicking here. I just wanted to mention I actually did achieve 31 …

What a whirlwind!

So after the joy that was Blaugust, I had a week before making a flying trip to the US for work. Long story short I had a week of flying and meeting rooms with very little (and I mean zero) downtime to do anything but sleep. Game face had to be on from 7.15am until …

#Blaugust2019 – The aftermath

I saw a decent jump in views during my posting bloodbath for Blaugust. In the last 30 days the Blaugust posts have been the main target which is great 🙂 But I noticed some of the posts only had a couple of views in total for the last 30 days. Having a couple of days …

#Blaugust2019 – OMG I DID IT!

All 31 days of August had a post. I cannot believe it. I have absolutely no idea how I managed to do it honestly. It get very hard towards the last week – I was just running out of ideas. There were plenty of writing prompts but I had written about them previously (or recently) …

#Blaugust2019 – Classic Lies

So I know, I know!! I posted less than a few days ago saying I wasn’t going to jump into Classic again, but then Apophis mentioned some people in our first original guild wanted to get the band back together and I got all giddy and Classic crazed. I was working from home due to …

#Blaugust2019 – Cliff Empire

A few posts back, I spoke about games I was interested in playing after doing a super brief search and probably the one I am most keen on is called “Cliff Empire”. It is available on steam for about $17 or so and I think I am gong to download it this weekend and give …

#Blaugust2019- Warcraft Tattoos

Can you tell I am scraping for topic ideas now…OMG this is so darn hard. A post every day! But whilst I was trolling twitter for other Blaugust writers to steal writing prompts from, I found this and had to stop and appreciate the awesomeness. Here is Algalon from @Warcraft Tattoo after my session #1. …

#Blaugust2019 – Classic

I won’t be playing Classic, in fact I haven’t even installed it. I played on the beta weekend a few months ago and whilst I was all nostalgic for the game, it was enough of a taste to remind of why I don’t need to go back there. This tweet reinforced that in my mind. …

#Blaugust2019 – Why do I actually blog?

This is a question I have had running through my brain the last few weeks quite a lot. The answer is I am not sure, I just enjoy writing posts and like to know people are reading them. I think it shows insight to how I view games and what excites or angers me in …

#Blaugust2019 -Backlogs?

One of the things I have stumbled across since starting this challenge when reading other blogs is this idea of a backlog. Of games. This blew my mind hole so far open I am not sure I will ever be able to close it again. I am such a WoW addict, I had never considered …

#Blaugust2019 – The Queen’s Court of mischief

The guild actually killed the Court last week, but I was not online for it as I was at home, playing (and losing) Harry Potter board games with friends. So I was pretty excited when our next raid night we started a fresh heroic run and managed to get all the way to the Court …

#Blaugust2019 – IRL Collecting

What do I collect? I can’t collect real life mounts or pets (although that is a tempting idea) I do have a thing with collecting Pinny Arcade pins. I am always open for donations to either keep or swap with people at our yearly pilgrimage to PAX. PAX for those unfamiliar is a gaming expo …

#Blaugust2019 – Creator appreciation – Music

Music is one of those things I want in my life playing all the time. Sadly I need to be talking to people and watching other things, so I can’t have music going as much as I would like. It is a huge part of my emotional rollercoaster balancing as well. It can put me …

#Blaugust 2019 – Creator appreciation – INTPIPOMO 2018 RESULTS

You might remember, towards the end of last year I did INTPIPOMO….well I did some of it. Not all of it. I only managed to post a few photos, but that was enough apparently to score me a little random win. Who would have thought 🙂 You can read the full post here but I …
