Last Tuesday I went with the guys from work to pick up a copy of World of Warcraft, the new MMORPG from Blizzard.
Long time Cruft readers may recall that I played one of the first MMORPGs, Ultima Online, for four years. In early 2001, I stopped playing Ultima regularly. I simply got tired of the stress from the virtual world. In the game I had been a vigilante, a Guild Leader, and even the Mayor of an imaginary town. I realized I really didn't need the stress, despite the fun. The fun is recounted here in my stories.
I tried a couple other games but never got hooked. I decided to give World of Warcraft (WoW) a try. So far I've been having fun and enjoying all aspects of the game.
Here are a few pictures of the game so you get an idea of what it's like.

As you can see, there's a lot to do in the new world. Hopefully my blogging won't suffer much. ;)
