Warcraft: An addiction. A playground. An escape.
To some, it’s more about the community than it is the game. It’s an escape into another world. It’s the ability to experiment with different races, interact with other players, and work together to kill challenging bosses.
The addiction began with the books. Masterpieces so brilliant, I could not help but try the game. The addiction spread like a virus. Minutes turned to hours. The first few levels came quickly, too quickly, and I found myself wanting more. Before I knew it, six hours had passed and the day had turned to night. Grudgingly, I turned myself in, excited for my next day off where I could escape into the world again. But I’m no warrior. I’m barely a blip on the WOW scene. Not yet anyway.
Lately, forums have been asking, “Where is Bone when you need him?”
If you haven’t heard the name, Boneshaker is the name of one of the top DPS Enhancement Shamans in Blade’s Edge. Several months ago, he disappeared off the face of WOW. No one knew what happened to him or where he had gone.
For several months, he remained a ghost. Not a whisper, a message, or the dreaded /gquit. Only silence. His account remained active, yet dormant.
Boneshaker is loyal, supportive, zany. A shaman draenei who can kick some serious ass in a raid. He will stay up late into the night and early morning to help finish off a boss. He is no guild leader, only a warrior at heart who speaks his mind, one who will not stand quietly while he or others are trampled. He loves the game, but he does not live for the game. (You know the kind I speak of. The kind who dominate the guild, demote officers while promoting their own. Or the kind in need of blood pressure medication–or something–while leading a raid screaming, “More DoTs!”)
He is a man who believes himself to have been born in the wrong century. A thousand years ago, he sees himself not as a conqueror, but a strategist. He is a gamer, a husband, a die-hard Leafs fan, and a brilliant storyboarder.
I’m going to let you in on a little secret…
Bone a.k.a. Slade Sewell has been here with me, breathing life into an idea he originally thought out for an RPG. Like Warcraft, Legacies of Talimura: War of the Witch ignites your inner childhood, reaching the young adult audience and beyond. Talimura is a world of magic and adventure, war and tragedy. Fall in love with the cast from Astanyx, Barret, Ramza, and Princess Luccia to the dragons, hellfangs, and the evil Debonair. Leave the real world behind and enter the world of Talimura where you can take risks, feed your soul, and become anyone you want.
Click on the link Legacies of Talimura: War of the Witch and enter the world of Talimura.
Now that the book has been unleashed to the public, Boneshaker, once again, returns to Warcraft.
If you haven’t met Boneshaker yet, beware. He’s back.
