Oh, my boundless geekery!

So, apologies to those of you who read the blog for, you know, stuff about my writing. My entry this ayem set off a conversation about Lady Sylvanas Windrunner, the Banshee Queen. I've been reading her backstory over at the wowiki. I love that you can actually read the lyrics of the song she sings at the end of the "Journey to Undercity" quest, "Lament of the Highborne," in Thalassian:

Anar'alah, Anar'alah belore
Sin'dorei
Shindu fallah na
Sin'dorei
Anar'alah
Shindu Sin'dorei
Shindu fallah na
Sin'dorei
Anar'alah belore
Shindu Sin'dorei
Shindu fallah na
Sin'dorei
Anar'alah belore
Belore


or

By the light, by the light of the sun
Children of the blood
Our enemies are breaking through
Children of the blood
By the light
Failing children of the blood
They are breaking through
O' children of the blood
By the light of the sun
Failing children of the blood
They are breaking through
O' children of the blood
By the light of the sun
The sun


Oh, and there's this video montage, released by Blizzard, which uses the song as a backdrop to the story of the fall of the High Elves, the coming of the Scourge, and of Sylvanas' death and resurrection, and so forth.



Okay. I'll stop now. Oh, wait, by the way, in related news, Blizzard is now offering FREE, though irreversible, sex reassignment for only $15. Hell, that's cheaper than Tijuana, and without the risk of gangrene!

Blizzard never ceases to amaze me.

You must reach lvl 55, get WotLK, and roll a Death Knight just for the experience. It's some of the best gaming that can be had in WoW, inclusive. Although, well, it takes being lvl 55 ...

I must first say that 'elf pr0n' is the best tag ever.

That being said, that's a cool vid, thanks for sharing. Blood elves really have the best backstory in the game, imho.

I think so.

Actually, it is reversible, but you have to wait 30 days before doing so, just like changing the name of the character.

I would also agree that playing a Death Knight is a must for enjoying the end-game content. I'm playing mine more than I ever played my druid. There's nothing better than seeing a patch of ground under your enemy suddenly turn into dead soil and skeletal arms come up from beneath to cause damage.

Again, beats Mexico.

Have always lusted after the Lady. Always.

She is lustworthy, above all others. Anar'alah.

the WoW lore is really engaging and keeps me in the game, even when some of those I play with are more focused on 'playing to win' instead of enjoying the experience.
