((Temporary OOC Update))

At the moment, I am looking for online content writing/editing opportunities. I thought I'd mention it here in case any readers knew of any examples. If you do, please comment or send me an email at destron@live.com. Thanks, and I'll take this notice down in a week or so.

On an unrelated note, I found this:

This is a map of Shattrath City, labeled with the neighborhoods I created for it in the travelogue. The map's done by a Moon Guard guild called the Lower City Watch, which is apparently using the travelogue as inspiration. If any of you are reading this, thank you for taking the time to read my blog.

Also (and I mentioned this in the comments section, but I'll put it here as well), the next update is going to be late. December will probably only have one update, since things have been hectic in real life.

  2. I'm afraid I can't think of any to answer your statement, but I am, however, curious about something.

    In your stories I've read about a character called Cassian that introduced the Light to humanity. I'm wondering if there's any actual lore behind this, or if it was an interesting creation of your own.

    Thanks!

  3. Cassian's entirely of my own creation. If you're not sure if something's from official lore, or is poetic license on my part, check Wowwiki.com. Generally, if you can't find any mention of it there, it's something I made up on my own.

    Also, since this seems like a good place to mention it, the next regular update will be a bit late.

  4. Thanks for your quick response! I appreciate it.

    Also, am I to assume that you have a character somewhere on Moon Guard? Horde, likely?

    If my asking too many questions on this message board is annoying or awkward, I wonder if you have an instant messaging program you're open to using?

  5. Don't worry about asking too many questions on this board; if anything, I'd like to see more comments here. You can also contact me at destron@live.com, if you wish. Really though, blog comments are fine.

    I actually just created an Alliance character (named Corestiam) on Moon Guard, for the purpose of offering another signature to this Lower Watch guild (assuming they still need signatures).

    However, I don't have time to level or RP another character. It's really just to help the Lower City Watch.

  6. Have you considered asking Blizzard about a job? Your work is very good, better than a lot of theirs that I've read. You might bundle up your work and submit it to them with a resume.

  7. Blizzard knows about the travelogue; they featured it on the WoW Community Watch back in February 2008. I did apply for a creative writer opening, but never got the job.

    I'm gradually moving on to other things anyway though, so it's probably for the best. Besides, my interpretation of WoW, while generally accurate in regards to lore, is pretty idiosyncratic. I'm not sure how well it would fit with the game.

  8. Any updates on your re-writing of the old Azeroth stories? I haven't read any of them yet, and am quite eager to start whenever you get your revision to a comfortable spot.

  9. I kind of got caught up in writing new material. However, the revisions are really very slight. There's no new content or anything, I just wanted to improve the quality of the writing.

    Thanks for reminding me though. Since I'm only going to be able to do one update this month, I guess I'll have time to edit the older sections. I left off at Orgrimmar, so there's not that much left to do.
