Begin

Duty Now for the FutureA blog. About Warcraft, mostly, and other gaming. Somewhere to capture my thoughts.

As this blog begins, I’m in the thick of Warcraft, having been there for a good 18 months now. In other words, a late starter, but fascinated by it. I’ve always gamed, but until Warcraft it was limited to single player with the occasional “drag a PC to a friends house” LAN day – huge fun but a logistical nightmare.

The social gaming I did revolved around Dungeons & Dragons, which didn’t seem possible to recreate in PC gaming. We played fast and loose with the DnD ruleset, playing the game in a very ad-lib way, making it more about the interaction than the system. We were blessed with a fantastic GM who could create entire worlds, political systems, religions, and brilliant NPCs, and our monthly sessions were a highlight.

Then a couple of us started to dive into WoW, having heard so much and yet steadfastly ignored it. And we, of course, were instantly hooked & utterly staggered.

Which is where we begin.
