My Illustrated World of Warcraft Diary

Did I mention that I played World of Warcraft?

I was late to the game, playing maybe 10 hours a week mostly after midnight. It was fun! After about a year I finally achieved the highest level of the game and lost interest. In case you were wondering why Cockeyed.com sucked from August 2007 to January 2009,  Warcraft is to primarily to blame.

The game itself sells for $30, and requires a seperate $15/month fee after the first 45 days.

The game is vast. You create a character and control his actions through a sprawling universe. There are six very large cities, each with more than 40 businesses, plus probably another 150 smaller towns to explore. In all there are probably 2,000 non-player characters in the game, and the cities and lands are crawling with other human players, each of whom you can chat, trade, cooperate and die with.

Below is a directory of the diary I kept, writing on Wordpress as "Piehands". I added some images to the descriptions to set the scene a little.
