I feel I’ve brutally decieved some of you.  I should have made it clear that I used to play WoW.  When I played, (I stopped about 3 or 4 months after BC came out) I played on the server Kirin Tor and was in the guild Mellonea.  Kirin Tor is an RP server, and especially when I was playing, it was relatively heavy into the RP side of things (outside of Goldshire and the barrens, obviously).

My character was a human Paladin, and I did a fair bit of raiding as well.  We made it into Molten Core, BWL (I was there when we downed the first two bosses for the first time, it was a lot of fun) AQ 20 (only the first boss I’m afraid) and Zul’gurub.  I was raid leader for my guild, and so I led AQ and ZG raids.

I also did some PvP, where I was quite successful (mostly ret build with some in healing), but what was best about WoW was the people in my guild.  We were mostly female, and the average age was something like 30.  This meant there was little drama, and a lot of close friendships.

However, because I am not playing anymore, I am reluctant to do this story.  I don’t want to get addicted again just before my senior year, and I’m loath to take my 65 to 80 for the class.  Also, I wrote a serial with my brother about our characters for an online gaming magazine, and kinda… well,

Blizz may have sent us a “cease and desist” letter

Basically, I wanted to explain to you guys why I’ve decided not to do the WoW story when there was interest.  That being said, I’d be more than happy to write a blog post or two about my character if you are curious, and I could of course copy over some posts I made on the Mellonea forums.
