Role Playas

Fridays have more of a typical significance these days, in the life of this Mepper. That being the case, this animated piece screams Mep Friday, despite the fact that I uninstalled World of Warcraft last night. Oh noes, the Alliance is doomed!

Arcane Mage: A How to Guide

Now, I realize the level of nerdiness that goes along with the admission that I used to play one of these “arcane mages” in an “MMORPG” entitled “World of Warcraft.”
