  1. Thoughts on Why I Don't PvP

    Chogath posted a new thread on the forums today that got me thinking about why I don't spend much time or energy on PvP. I should PvP, it's the standard progression for wizards who have been in the Spiral for a while, or 6 years in my case. Yet I don't care much for the idea of PvP. I have an ideal for what would be fun in PvP, but my actual experiences in the arena don't rise to the aspiration.

    First age PvP was fun for me, for the most part. I played with my necromancer, pyromancer, ...

Especially for children, the orderly structure of the game and the motivation to complete tasks teach valuable lessons in time management, organization, and pride in a job well done.

  4. Whitman for a Rainy Day

    And who art thou? said I to the soft-falling shower,
    Which, strange to tell, gave me an answer, as here translated:
