Alright... Thanksgiving is upon us. You said (heck, I'm gonna exaggerate and say you PROMISED) to come back at Thanksgiving. ;-)I'd love to say something along the lines of "But my fellow blogger, I've never left you!" and go on to reveal something like I'm still playing WoW (and am actually Tobald), or something along those lines - but it's just not the case.
What may be of interest - is that I've been tossing in a decent share of time with Dungeons and Dragons Online (DDO)- which went free to download & play somewhat recently. I'm having quite a lot of fun (tabletop D&D has been a regular part of my geek diet for a number of years), and could see myself playing this MMO-incarnation for quite awhile. Yakra the Dwarf is making a living getting beat on, but in a slightly different light.
I'll throw this out there: Let me know if there is interest in hearing about the adventures and experiences of Yakra & Aertimus (& Company) in the world of Eberron. It's certainly a horse of a different color (compared to WoW) - but I do miss this community, and if the feeling is mutual I could stage a return.
