WoW IRL

I suppose this is a somewhat misleading title, but I’ve always been terrible at coming up with titles for things so it will have to suffice.

While my guild has members all over the US and Canada, we’ve got a decent number of members (plus about two-thirds of the officers) who are located in my vicinity.  I hosted our first meet up about 3 years ago after having been in the guild for about 8-9 months; it wasn’t weird, the world didn’t explode, and it was fun so we’ve continued to have random get-togethers about once a year for the “locals” and whenever some of our members from farther away happened to be in the area for whatever reason.

Last week our RL was in the state doing all the stuff you do when you’re looking to move and set a day out of his schedule to come hang out with us.  We had an absolute blast!  The conversation was non-stop and covered all sorts of topics; what can you say, most of us have played together for at least 2.5 years at this point.  There were tons of pictures (and even some video!) that we’ve got posted in our forums for those who weren’t able to make it.

The side effect, for me anyway, of having been able to meet and hang out with our RL is that I now snicker (only internally, mind you) whenever someone fucks up during raids and we get yelled at.  It has definitely made raids far more amusing for me.  😀
