Europeans buy less gold than Americans
Curiously the price of the WoW Token is rising again in Europe, hitting nearly 40k, while the US WoW Token is down to just above 20k. As the price reflects the relative supply and demand, it appears as if the players on the US servers are far more enthusias...

Semantic collision
A role-playing game is a semantic collision of two very different activities: Theatrical "role-playing" and playing a game with dice and rules ("roll-playing" or "rules playing"). Different people enjoy those two parts to different degrees, and they are pro...

The Favorites of Selune - Last Session
In the previous session the Favorites of Selune had fought their way through the troll warrens, uncharacteristically skipping an optional combat. That left them for this session with only the final boss fight of the dungeon left, against the troll king Skal...

One combat system to bind them all
Since last weekend I started doing pet battles in World of Warcraft. I simply missed out on them earlier and had only low level pets. So in the zones that were level-adequate for my high-level characters, the pets were too high level for me, and I wasn't in...

5,000!
This is my 5,000th post on my blog. That took me nearly 12 years, with an average of just above one post per day.

What do the gold buyers spend their gold on?
When the WoW Token was announced, I speculated that it would lead to gold flowing from people who didn't use it to players who had some need for it, who would go on a shopping spree and cause AH inflation. For me it appeared perfectly reasonable that somebo...

Alternative uses for WoW tokens
Talarian was musing whether he could make a profit by speculating with WoW tokens . Buying tokens for gold and reselling them for gold isn't possible. But you can buy subscription time for gold when tokens are cheap, and buy tokens for dollars and convert t...

WoW Token hits Europe
One could have reasonably expected Blizzard to launch the WoW Token in Europe at the same price than in the USA, because there isn't really a strong reason to think that the market value would be much different over here, with the Euro being at $1.07. But s...

Level cap activities
I am not a huge fan of playing at the level cap. Gameplay at the level cap tends to be more repetitive, with diminishing returns of gear rewards over time. And while reaching the level cap is great as a starting point for the next expansion, the gear reset ...

Personal blogging
Yesterday mbp asked "Would you care to share your thoughts on the ongoing relevance of personal blogging in this age of facebook / twitter / reddit etc.?" . I think the keyword in this is "personal", because that is where I see blogging moving towards to. A...

Oh wow, somebody calls me an idiot for posting at "4 o'clock in the morning" without considering that it isn't "4 o'clock in the morning" everywhere on this planet at the same time. Special bonus for this being the post where I say that I am in fact not trying to reach somebody but consider blogging to be personal and primarily for myself.

McDonald's is not responsible for your eating habits
The best thing I can say about Wolfshead is that fortunately he doesn't post often. But when he does it is always a long diatribe against the evils of modern MMORPGs, modern being anything from this century. Usually I just ignore him, but his current rant a...

On the role of the DM in a tabletop role-playing game
I've been reading a blog post about whether a DM in a pen & paper role-playing game should be an impartial arbiter, friendly guide, or deadly foe . None of those options struck me as particularly fitting, at least not for my style of Dungeons & Dragons gami...
