IntPiPoMo: Homely

This post is part of IntPiPoMo, where I post a screenshot each day during November. It's not too late to join in if you wish!


In a tiny cottage above Northshire and east of Stormwind City lives a gnome called Agee Tyler. He has a flock of sheep outside, but one of them carries a secret...

This post is also doubling up for the Through Your Interface challenge as my Day 8: Vacation Spot.  Who wouldn't want to spend a few days relaxing by the fire or enjoying the view in such a beautiful place? There's also a campsite at the bottom of the waterfall if you'd rather not cuddle up with the sheep.

15 Days of Screenshots: Inspiring Imagery

This post is part of a series for Saz's Through Your Interface screenshot challenge. 

Day 12: Inspiring Imagery

Show us something that inspires you within World of Warcraft.


Whitereach Post, Old Thousand Needles.

It probably comes as no surprise that images are a huge inspiration for me when it comes to writing. The image above, for example, inspired me to write a story about my shaman, Balindah.

Grizzlemaw, Grizzly Hills

Northrend is a wonderful place for big-landscape shots. It really feels like the zones were designed to be viewed from afar as well as up close, and that still inspires me to stop and take screenshots all the time while I'm there.

Orgrimmar

I wonder from time to time how life goes on in Azeroth's cities for normal citizens, especially during festival times. It's fun to wonder what our heroes get up to when they're not off fighting in wars or killing ten rats in far-flung places.

Day 11: Profession of Choice

Show us an image of you doing what you like to do best. 


I know, it's not strictly a profession, but healing a group in order to achieve goals is what I like to do best.

15 Days of Screenshots: Wow Crew

This post is part of a series for Saz's Through Your Interface screenshot challenge. 

Day 10: Your WoW Crew
Who are the people you hang out with day in and day out?


Leesah is the solitary sort these days. She mainly goes about her business in Orgrimmar, with the occasional trip to Mount Hyjal to help with the war effort.


Aoifen is an Effer, but due to the world being round, I am rarely online at the same time as the rest of the guild. This makes Aoifen the solitary sort as well.

I miss my guildies.  I think I've just worked out why the game is starting to hold less interest for me these days :(

15 Days of Screenshots: Hometown

This post is part of a series for Saz's Through Your Interface screenshot challenge. 

Day 9: Your Character's Hometown

We all have the same starting zones where we begin our various quests, but where does your character actually hail from?

Although the Tauren are traditionally nomads, Leesah's family and tribe live in the area around Bloodhoof Village, Mulgore.

15 Days of Screenshots: Best Screen Shot

This post is part of a series for Saz's Through Your Interface screenshot challenge. 

Day 7: Best Screenshot

Show us the best screen shot you believe that you have ever taken and why you think it is the best (content, meaning, how you framed it, etc).


This was quite a challenge for me as I'm quite fond of all the screenshots I've included in my Gallery page.

This shot of the Thousand Needles at night is my absolute favourite though - I think it's the moonlit road leading off into the distance that makes me feel like I'm on an adventure.

I do miss the old Thousand Needles. It was so beautiful day and night!

15 Days of Screenshots: Favourite Quote

This post is part of a series for Saz's Through Your Interface screenshot challenge. 

Day 6: Favorite Line of Poetry/Lyric

Most of us have a favorite poet or song. Give us an image that you think represents your favorite line, or what line inspires you most. 


We live only to discover beauty.  All else is a form of waiting.
Khalil Gibran


I don't really have a favourite song or poet per se, more a wide variety of things that inspire me at random times. I came across this quote recently and thought it summed up quite well one of the things that I most love to do - find beautiful things in everyday life.  We play a beautiful game but we also live in a beautiful world - one which we should make sure to get out and see it from time to time.

15 Days of Screenshots: Titles

This post is part of a series for Saz's Through Your Interface screenshot challenge. 

Day 5: Title of Choice

Show us an image of you pimping your favorite title and give us a reason why you dig it so much.

Titles have evolved so much over the years. While I'm glad that they have made them easier to obtain, there aren't many that are still truly unique anymore, unless you're willing to take part in weeks of grinding.

The titles that I've really admired are ones that I haven't had the opportunity to get - Hand of A'dal, Starcaller, Loremaster, Guardian of Cenarius... but my favourite for my Shadow Priest was always "of the Nightfall". For my Druids, I quite like "Elder", but Leesah has always secretly coveted "Guardian of Cenarius".

I didn't get a chance this week to be too creative with a screenie so instead I'm cheating by posting some random shots instead. Enjoy!

A light in the darkness

15 Days of Screenshots: Greatest Accomplishment

This post is part of a series for Saz's Through Your Interface screenshot challenge. 

Day 4: Greatest Accomplishment

I've never been at the fore-front of progression raiding so I don't have any of the fancy drakes or even much special gear, so my accomplishments are probably pretty low-key compared to some. I'll share a few with you anyway.

Completing Karazhan
Hells Reapers started out as a levelling guild in mid-Burning Crusade times. It grew to a decent size and once a few of us got to level 70 we started to run heroics together. The transition into raids took a while and a load of work, but with the hard work of a few key people plus the core raiders we completed Karazhan in June 2008. I was the GM at the time and I was so proud of everyone!

This shot is the roof of the Opera, one of my favourite encounters in Kara. What will the show be tonight? Wizard of Oz? Perhaps Romulo and Julianne.. or the dreaded Big Bad Wolf during which most of the raid were sure to perish!



Slaying Malygos
Later, in a different guild and a short while after Wrath had been released, we had started to run Naxxramas. One Saturday morning a group of 10 of us decided to have a crack at Malygos, since one of us had got the key during the week. Five or six hours of wiping later and after about a total of 16 people taking part as people were subbed in and out, we got him down. What made it even better was that we hadn't even realised that getting Maly down would earn us the Champion of the Frozen Wastes title, before many others on the server had it. We wore that title with pride for many weeks, or at least until everyone else had it.



Kingslayers
Much later, and on the other side of the world, a small 10-man raiding guild killed the Lich King in the dying weeks of the expansion. Yes, we had 25% buff and someone with us who had done it before, but I was so proud of my Kingslayer title after that night. I miss my guildies... I wish they would come back from Rift :-/

15 Days of Screenshots: Player Housing

This post is part of a series for Saz's Through Your Interface screenshot challenge. Make sure to go check out the other bloggers taking part!

Day 2: Player Housing

If you were to claim a place to call your own, where would it be and why?

I'm going to answer this one from a personal point of view rather than my characters - I'm sure they would each choose somewhere in their home city or perhaps the Druids would prefer the tranquillity of Moonglade.

My favourite city and one in which I would choose to live would have to be Stormwind. I've always loved walled cities and castles and Stormwind has that cobbled narrow street feel. Since the Park is no longer available to live in, I'd have to go for lodgings in the Mage Quarter.



For a country retreat, the abandoned mansion at Dandred's Fold to the north of the Alterac Mountains has a picture-perfect spot beside Lordamere Lake. Since the Cataclysm, the area is no longer infested with Syndicate agents. There's even a warm fire eternally burning inside, ready for the next occupant!



Lastly, for a seaside holiday, who could go past Shadowprey Village in Desolace? Relax on the beach or go paddling during the day and party with the Trolls all night!
