[World of Warcraft] aka The Lukewarm Crusade: Day 3
We had a really good time playing our Blood Elves last night. The quests around Silvermoon City are quite fun. My wife continued her social experiments, this time with someone whispering to her asking if she checked her mailbox yet. She did, only to find out that she has been given gifts! Lots of gifts. Her latest says he is 35 and married with 4 kids. So perhaps his intentions are simply to help out a new player. All I know is that nobody is giving me gifts. Isn’t my Blood Elf fancy enough? At least she promised to share her gifts with me.
We had a quest to eliminate a “spy” located at the North Sanctum. We traveled out, wondering what our “spy” might look like. The orders were to eliminate the spy without being seen to avoid the shame of allowing a spy to infiltrate our little club. We arrived at the Sanctum and looked around, finding the dead body of a dwarf. Someone already got to the spy first. Good thing another spy with the same name will show up soon so we can fulfill our orders.
As we were standing there with about 5 other people, I asked “Is this the line to secretly kill the spy?” which generated some good laughs and we all decided to team up for the assassination process. Time ticks by and still no spy. Eventually, someone gets bored enough to go look around and we find the spy outside. After talking to him he heads inside and towards the heavily armed group of people, oblivious to our intent. Assassination complete! Who would have guessed that the dwarf would be a spy?
One of the quest rewards was a two-handed sword that was as tall as my character. Final Fantasy, meet World of Warcraft. At least we can laugh at it. In fact, we find ourselves laughing at the game a lot lately and I guess that is a good thing because fun is fun, right?
