1/72 Multiverse has finally reached the 100,000 milestone!
I will have to confess I've neglected posting for the month of July because of that massive time sink known as WoW. Other than entering a MUD way back in the early 90's, I have not looked into playing any of the MMORPGs that are now so popular among gamers (though I do like looking at their various character and monster designs). At the behest of some friends, I signed up for a free month-long trial of WoW, and took advantage of a huge discount on the game and it's expansions. Frankly, because we are scattered all over the world, this is really the only way I can game with members of my old gaming group.
A big thanks to all the readers who have made this possible.
MMORPGs are just about what I expected. The mindset of most players is definitely that of a video gamer for whom "death" is a mere inconvenience, and clearing levels as fast as possible is the main objective. Still, I guess it's more about the social aspect of gaming with friends that makes it enjoyable.
Now that I've leveled up to where I can participate in the same dungeons as everyone else, I should be able to get back to a more regular posting schedule.
