Hot Topics from the Nether!
No Kodos for you! Warcraft Mount and Bre are on a quest for a Kodo!
The Brewfest, like many of the holiday events has been retooled to have a new summonable boss, and a new kodo mount. But unlike last year that both factions could obtain a ram mount, this year Alliance players will only have access to the ram and horde to the kodo.
Which way is Mania’s? East or West?
Okay this has to be on of the coolest things I have seen in a while. Mania from Mania’s Acanica the mistress of Petopia put up a post about a certain map from the creator of El’s Extreme Anglin’,Tim Howgego made a relationship map of the wow community sites and it is just awesome.

Twisted Blog of the Week and Guest-Auzara!
This week, we have Auzara from the Chick GM . She comes with a party hats and notes! Auzara is very prepared! The GM of a progression guild in Sunwell, Auz offers excellent guild management advice. Chick GM is full of fantastic advice and great writing. From her site:
I’m writing because when I started leading guilds I did a lot of reading. A few talented people shared their insight via blogs, forums and one on one conversations. Those people gave their time and energy and that allowed me to be a better leader. I hope that my energy may provide the same benefit to a new leader in training, or maybe just provide insight to an established leader.
In addition, I’m currently in the process of writing a book on guild leadership. While the book is factual and not based too much in my personal experiences, I believe documenting my day to day joys and frustrations will help keep me in touch with my personal experiences as a GM.
Finally, I’m writing because I believe as a reasonably articulate, female leader of one of the top 1000 US guilds, my perspective and experiences are fairly unique in the gaming world, and may prove to be interesting to at least one other person.
