Each week on BlogAzeroth a new topic is posted for general blogging. We encourage our listeners to post about that topic on their own blog and then post a link to it in the forum.

Shared Topic: (link)

Strumwulf of Strumwulf’s Page of Stories and Ideas came up with the great idea of RPing a scene with your favorite mount.

My idea is that we roleplay a scene with a mount your character has. It can be anything from how you acquired the mount to its death.

Next week…

Next week, sadly, we won’t be here… But we’ll be back the week after that, see you then!

  • Hah, “Fetaltree” ftw! Changes the tone of the blog a bit ;-)

    Thanks for the linkage for my site though.

    Actually, most druids stealth before an arena match begins, so you really don’t know what they are until they pop out. Also, on the Paladin comment, you can tell pretty much what spec a Paladin is by looking at how much Mana they have. Between 5-10k they’re ret, 20k+ they’re holy. Prot will have around the same Mana pool as ret, but you’ll be able to tell by their health or what gear they’re wearing (Sword/Board or Two Hander).
