The Blessings of Nurgle, God of Decay

chosen1Sorry I haven’t been writing much, I haven’t been playing much I have been truly blessed by the god of sickness and decay, Grandfather Nurgle.  As I am feeling much better now, and escaping the God of Decay’s plots, others have plans of me. Perhaps Lord Tzentech has some use of me next. For the Ravens are going to the Super Bowl. The Changer of Ways has deemed it so.  For now let us march on to the laughing, and thirsting of Dark Gods.

On that note Mark Jacobs did a great interview of Massively talking about Warhammer Online.  I’m a huge fan of Mark Jacobs, and all he does…am I fan boy…perhaps, but unlike people who demand respect. Mark is one of the few people who earned my respect, he is honorable in victory, and defeat. He refuses to push people under the bus, and I think like a phoenix he will rise from the ashes once again. Reminds me of myself and few other friends who had a guild in Mark’s game called Dark Ages of Camelot. We walked away from one of the major guilds on the server, and started one called Phoenix Ascension and rose from the ashes to become the number one guild on our server.  As we move from the past of DAOC, and Warhammer, City State Entertainment releases another trailer, and if you look closely around the internet Mark is leaving breadcrumbs as to his design notes…

“Foundation Principle #5– Choice and your choices matters!

This game will offer the player a wide range of choices of race, skills, armor, weapons, etc. and every major choice you make will have an effect on your character. You want to play a 4’2, 70 pound girl who runs around in lingerie and still wants to play a fighter? Sure, go right ahead but we hope you have major medical insurance. OTOH, if you want to play a character that looks like a fighter but also has lots of non-fighter like abilities/skills/etc., this game will allow you to do it. There will also be real and meaningful differences between races, genders, etc. Choice like size, really does matter, no matter what some people say.” ~ Mark Jacobs.

It’s starting to get me hyped, and  leaving one question. Who’s ass do I have to start kissing to get into closed beta?

As I crawl out of my mire, and back into the world of the living I got some stuff I want to talk about, So stick around because I may get sick, and down, but I am never out. I am Iron Within, and Iron Without!!
