Praedyth – Part 1

The screams were deafening. Despite the stoic resolve of the Wardens, Praedyth watched – paralyzed by his own horror – as his town burned.

Phewph, that was a lot of World of Warcraft related stuff. I’m taking a break from it for the moment, because I know there’s going to be even more announcements to write about, and I don’t want to get crippling excitement pains. Well, not just yet anyway.

I hate beta invites. Passionately. I never ever get given beta keys, I get my knickers in a twist and then I have to wait for everybody else to parade their fortune in gameplay videos.
