green machine by *nefar007 on deviantART An axiom is, “a premise so evident as to be accepted as true without controversy.” The Hulk being the Strongest One There Is is, in the comics world, a well known axiom. That Bricu is a Bastard is another, more WoW specific, example of an axiom. While it would [...]
1. What’s your Name. Hello there! My name is Thyanel, and I’ve been playing World of Warcraft since 2007. In fact, the name I blog under is the name of my first serious character (a blood elf paladin). My hobbies in-game consist of roleplaying, a bit of dungeoneering, and mount collecting, although I have yet [...]
Let’s start with how it ended: Broken bodies, a kidnapped blood elf and a hostage worgen, grudges and rivalries (re)established that would last an expansion, the organizer of the event horribly burned with a shadowbolt, and players of all factions saying “Hell yes!” This was the event held on Feathermoon (US) in 9/7/12.

Stormwind City by ~janesthlm on deviantART Lady Constanza Montrose looked out from her balcony in Stormwind, took a deep breathe of the warm, summer air and wished for the entire bloody city to burn. Not the now-familiar dragon-fire that nearly sacked the entire city, but the familiar, Scourge fires that still burned in Stratholme. It [...]
Heroes, Antiheroes, villains and bad-asses: What do you play in WoW and why?
In the spirit of full disclosure, I snagged this song idea from All Songs Considered. So you and your RP group have decided to run with a romance story. You’ve agreed to certain boundaries and you’re having a grand old time. What do you do next? You keep the story alive. Look, a story is [...]
