The Riders worked on a story wherein a few unsavory people figured out a way to sell Lotus on the cheap. This pitted a cartel against the Riders, and for a large part of Cata, it did not go well for the Black and Red. And this is how that story ended. For the record, [...]
I won’t parse words here: Cataclysm RP was more difficult than Wrath. Don’t get me wrong: I enjoyed a lot of this xpac, and the rp it inspired, but coming off the high of Wrath… Well, it was hard to top. Truth be told, cata was a Hard xpac. We lost people. Stories took forever [...]

Azeroth has a variety of alcohols, tobacco products, and it has coffee, but what about other, more illicit narcotics? In Dalaran we can see the washed up mage, a victim of Kungaloosh: Shattrath had it’s own down-on-their-luck NPCs, and let’s not forget the Blood Elves. I’d be remiss if I didn’t include herbalism and alchemy [...]
In the next xpac, we’re headed towards not just towards Pandas, but an elevated level of conflict between the Alliance and the Horde. On a more depressing level, we also need to realize we are going to loose people as WoW hits 7 and other games launch. During these next few months, before we run [...]
