Shared Topic: Tracking Time

Last week Danslate asked about the flow of time in Azeroth:

Note: This topic was originally mentioned by Rioriel on Twitter and discussed and developed further by Rioriel, Angelya and myself. Therefore, if any credit is due, it is due to them (especially Rioriel for spawning the idea). Of course, I leave it to the moderators’ discretion to shorten the actual Shared Topic or edit it for concision.

Here is Rioriel’s original tweet:

Other than the general passing of years, there’s no defined calendar in Azeroth. What would you name the months? #Warcraft

I would like to further this idea a bit:

Time passes, in real life and in WoW. But except for how long a day and a year are, we know virtually nothing about the calendar in Azeroth. Are there also twelve months in Azeroth as there are here? How long are they? Only because February is 28 days long in the calendars of Western civilizations doesn’t mean Azeroth’s February has to have the same length.
As there are many different civilizations with their own languages spread throughout Azeroth, what names might the days and months have?

Giving us there thoughts were:

Akabeko from Red Cow Rise

Kajite from Around Azeroth

Danslate from Danslayers

This week bloggers are making their own legendaries! To participate, blog about the topic and link back to your post in this thread.

It’s also the holiday season, yet our shared topic wish list is rather shy of topics. Give your favorite forums a holiday gift with a great topic!

Netherhood Welcome Wagon – Bubbles of Mischief

Hello Everyone! I’d like you to join me in welcoming Cymre of Bubbles of Mischief.

Cymre has been playing WoW since Vanilla, starting off her adventures as a hunter. However as the Burning Crusade was about to change the face of WoW forever, Cymre decided to see how it felt to turn in her arrows and find the light – or more simply known as rerolling a priest. She is a bit of an achievement hound, using her free time to chase them all down. In addition to managing her guild website, “catching them all” when it comes to non-combat pets and keeping up to speed on her professions, Cymre has become quite the fashionista! She’s discovered tons of ways to dress herself up for any adventure or activity in the game.

Over atBubbles of Mischief you might learn a little bit about Captain Sanders and his mysterious treasure map, or perhaps you have been dying to know how to craft a Buffy outfit for transmog purposes. Not into Buffy? Well that’s ok, we can’t all be perfect. Maybe you are looking for that perfect style putzing around with Archeaology! What do you mean you aren’t into dressing up?! Fine. Perhaps you would be more interested in learning about Azshara or maybe find out how to spend your time out at the Darkmoon Faire!

Regardless of what you are looking for, Cymre is sure to have something to tickle your fancy! I certainly can’t wait to see what kind of clever outfits she finds next! Welcome to the blogosphere, Cymre!


Every Tuesday, Beruthiel from Falling Leaves and Wings is bringing you the Welcome Wagon, introducing new bloggers and great reads. If you know of a new blog to the scene or wish to get your name out there, please send an email to, with the subject line “Welcome Wagon.” She’ll do her best to highlight as many as possible

Shared Topic: Double the Fun!

Welcome back to the Blog Azeroth Shared Topic. I was horribly disorganized the last couple of weeks, and unfortunately allowed a week to slip away from me! This week we’ll be featuring the Shared Topic for the last two weeks in order to get back on track.

First up was a wonderfully creative idea suggested by Mia:

With the new Mists of Pandaria expansion, a lot of people didn’t like the idea of Pandas being part of World of Warcraft. So using the races/models that are available; try your best to mix and make your own race. (ex: You can make half nightelf and half turtle! Or Undead Orcs!)

What racials would you include? What classes can this race have?

Making their own creations were:

Mia from Chronicles of Mia

Shoryl from Tiny WoW Guild

Kajite from Around Azeroth

JDKenada from Amateur Azerothian

Amerence from Amerence Love WoW

Effraeti from Effraeti’s RP

This past week Amerence provided us with another creative topic that asked us to invite our game characters into our real world lives:

Hi guys, We all know that we play WoW in a fantasy world, but I am just so curious to know What if your characters are ported to the Real world? Where will you stay, What Inn? What food to eat? What clothes are you going to wear? (Maybe take a naked picture of your WoW character and put a real life clothes to fit with it) and How will you use your powers to help others in what’s happening in our society now a days. Please share your thoughts! Thank you!

Inviting their characters to play were:

Amerence from Amerence Love WoW

The Ancient from Tome of the Ancient

Kajite from Around Azeroth

Effraeti from Effraeti’s RP

This week Danslate challenges us to tackle time in Azeroth. How is the calendar in Azeroth devised, and how are the months/seasons/days divided? To participate, head over to the Shared Topic thread and a link to your own thoughts from your blog. If there’s an idea that you’d like to see bantered around the Nether, leave us a post with your idea at the Shared Topic forum.

In addition, our holiday Blogging Exchange is being organized right now! If you haven’t signed up for Furtive Father Winter 2011 visit Akabeko of Red Cow Rise, or leave your information at Blog Azeroth. Entries will be accepted until December 15th (that’s Thursday folks!) Give a post, get a post, and connect with your fellow bloggers!

Happy Blogging!
