Poetic Musings

Thank you for taking this literary journey with me! Here I post personal thoughts on social issues, reflections about day-to-day living, and of course a healthy amount of stories inspired by the many games I’ve played over the years. I try to update several times a week, and genuinely appreciate the care and support of all who read these words, whether the post is fanciful or heartfelt.

The Where to Start page has great suggestions for first-time visitors, and all posts are sorted by the Categories you see in the right-side menu; feel free to narrow things down!

Rogg: Barren Wastes

My return to Orgrimmar was met with little fanfare – I was just another traveler in a long line of those coming and going from the Horde capital. I had found some useful herbs on the way which let me make a poultice for mending my arm after an errant stag...

Character Appropriation

Role-playing games encourage players to step out of their normal lives and to explore and develop stories that don't necessarily match their own experiences. Aside from portraying other species like elves or goblins, or beings with immense cosmic power like vampires...
