LICH-22 GOES CHAPTER 11

26 January 2005

World of Warcraft, you scrumptious delicious game you! Here the conclusion to my unforeseen diptych concerning this MMORPG.

When last we met I was rather upset at the prospect at not being able to play WoW, but now I am happy again. It seems my soul was easier given away than I thought, and I succumbed to the impeccable lure of Azeroth. I'll be getting internet soon and when the game is released here on februari 11th, I'll be indulging myself tremendously.

I have to say though that I'm taking it very carefully
, taking precautions to ensure that I don't lose myself on the internet again when I could also be doing work. I don't know how yet. A radical and bit overkill-esque stunt would be to remove my internetbrowser altogether so I have nothing to do but play the game. But somehow that just doesn't compute. Maybe it's all just a matter of willpower. And getting rid of the easy-access button in the start-bar. Surely if I have to dig through countless windows to get to the browser.exe I'll come to my senses. There you go, once again devious human trickery overcomes our primordeal instincts to surf. Go me.

Back to World of Warcraft. I already know what I'll play, what name I'll take and which class I'll choose. I won't tell because my mighty influence might encumber your own choices. What I will tell you is that I'll be joining one of the roleplaying-servers. There are a number of servers, most of them normal or PvP (Player vs. Player), and then there is a small host of RP, roleplaying. The people visiting these are the ones that treasure most to lose themselves in the experience. I'm already preparing myself to meet some really over-the-top zealots boasting the most dreadful Shakespearian language ever typed, but I'll indulge them. So long as I don't run into Optimus Prime or Arthas_f@nb0i_123 I'll be more than happy to put up with uncontrolled medieval-speak of the cringing sort. The consistency of the world stands or falls with the attitude of its inhabitants and therefore I'm glad that there are places meant especially for the hardcore crowd who wants to dig into real roleplay.

Of course then there's the whole deadline thing and heavy workload that I'm going to ignore which is why I'm basically doomed. But hey, who needs a college degree when you can summon an Infernal?

Roderick.
