“It’s all fun and games until someone loses durability.”
I am a geologist-for-hire and a guild leader.
I have been playing Warcraft for several years now and have had the pleasure of running (and being run by!) my very own raiding guild for more than half of that time.
WoW has seen me through many of the trials and tribulations of my life. Sometimes it has been a crutch, or even a parachute, the tiredly cliched “light in dark places” for me while aspects (and sometimes the entirety!) of my life have (or has, pick your tense) travelled up said creek with only said device to hand. And sometimes it has sent me there.
My guild is so much of my world, and so is my science that I am practically inable to seperate the two, and indeed I find strong paralells between them. Guild “dramaz” and their solutions find interesting and even uncanny counterparts in the supposedly ‘real world’ life that I live.
So for better or for worse, for good or for awesome, I have vowed to maintain a log of my musings, a blotter sheet of the crimes against sanity that both guild-leading and field geology have driven me to.
