Blizzcon 2010 – Down to the Wire

image

It’s getting closer! This is just another update with all the Twisted goings on this weekend. We will try to keep updating here and also with updates over on the TwistedNether twitter account.

  • Make sure to follow the @FimBlizzcon twitter account too so you can keep on top with Fim’s adventures at Blizzcon!
  • If you aren’t going to be at the conference, stay tuned here for updates including watching the LiveBlog we’ve got setup: Day1 and Day2
  • Hang out with the TNB crew and lots of your favorite bloggers, podcasters, twitterers (is that a word?) at the 2nd annual (hopefully) Twisted Nether Blizzcon Party/Meetup. Information about the meetup is available on our Blizzcon 2010 page. If you aren’t going to be in Anaheim then hang with us on the UStream channel during the event. We might even have a vent server setup for you at home to talk amongst yourselves (TNB VENTCON!! WOOT!)

We’ll try to keep up the liveblogging as much as possible as long as there is something interesting going on. Usually the second day is a lot less full of new stuff, but we’ll do what we can. We also have a Flickr account where we will put up the photos and videos taken at the event as soon as we can. You can head there now to see the ones from 2009!

Episode 105 – Moonqin Quippery

The Twisted Nether welcomes Qieth from Qieth’s Quips to the show this week and so, of course, there is a lot of Moonkin talk! Wrapped around and through all of that a bunch of 4.0.1 information, of course, since it went live this past week. Not much in the way of anything else for the show, but not surprising given the concentration people are giving to the patch. Enjoy!

SPOILER ALERT! WE TALK ABOUT CATACLYSM!

Shared Topic: What’s In a Name?

Another Sunday, another roundup of Shared Topic posts! And this week, I’m actually on time. Take a screenshot since you might never witness a moment like this again.

Last week’s Topic was suggested by the lovely Llani from Pocket Heals who asked us about our character naming habits:

How did you decide upon the name for your character(s)? Did you delve into Norse, Greek, or Roman mythology? Did you choose a name from one of your family members? Did you mash the “Random” name generator button in vain until you stumbled upon something you liked? Is your name a play on aspects of your class, using spells or other traits? Did you play around with syllables, vowels, and consonants until you found something that you loved?

How long did it take you to come up with your name? Do all of your characters share the same ‘theme’ or naming convention? Have you ever run into someone who had a similar name? How did you feel? Does your character have a partner with “the other half” to your name (such as “Salt” and “Pepper”). Do any of your characters have a “themed” guild that goes along with your name? Do you have a nickname that your guild, friends, or significant other has given your character?

Has your character name become your online persona, or maybe the other way around?

Do you have any tips for naming your characters in WoW, or any other game? Resources, name generators, mythology websites, sources of inspiration, etc.

If you are an avid roleplayer, how was your name decided upon by family/friends? Did your character choose the name later in life or were they given it at birth? There are whole stories behind naming/birthday celebrations that I am sure are floating around out there.

So much can be said about names. What does yours say?
