Me, in more depth
I’ve been playing WoW, now, for… almost two years. Not quite one of the old-timers, but it sure feels like it sometimes. I’ve almost always been a priest, and have run every race except the new ones up to at least 40 (when the top was 60). I’ve had a dwarf and an undead at 60 back then. My main today is Zingiber, a level 70 Night Elf Priestess on Undermine. Yes, I said priestess, and I am male. If this bothers you… Read This.
I also like hunters and warriors (in that order), and my current alts include those classes among them.
I’ve been playing wargames – not computer games, but board and mini and rpg and… just about anything, since I was 16. Since I’m pushing 50 now, that possibly gives you some perspective.
I’m not particularly anonymous, though I’ve a few privacy quirks – you’ll know if you run across one. But this means I’ll share my email if you want to contact me semi-privately. I don’t promise to answer — real life may interfere, as may an inability to form a coherent (or, based on one email from a few years ago, POLITE) response may result in silence being what happens. Rest assured I’ll read it. I just may not respond. If, with that caveat, you still want to write me the address is k s p e n c e r 3 0 7 2 0 AT y a h o o . you can finish the rest. (Yes, this is a test. If you cannot get my address from that, perhaps some work on basic cognitive processes might be in order.)
Since this is the WoW side of things I’ll not bore you with what I do, have done, and hope to do. Just know that I do not live and breathe computer games – or even computers, though there for a while…
Rule one of the game: It’s a game. If you’re not having fun, quit.
Rule two of the game: It’s a game. If it’s interfering with real life, quit.
Codicil to rule two – Real Life may not always have precedence. The game may be more interesting than ‘that party’ for example. But if you’re giving up income and friendships over the game, you may want to re-examine your priorities.
More to follow as I think of it…
