The Digi-Cult

A New Religion for a Digital Age

Welcome to Azeroth!

Hello all people in cyberspace! I am starting an experiment based on the fasination with MMORPGs. For those of you not familiar with this term it means Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games. The most common game circulating the web lately is World of Warcraft. It has been spoofed not only by The Simpsons but also South Park. The fascination with this game is pretty intense. I have been playing WoW since 2006 and since I am a student, only have one level 70. But lets start by explaining the game:

Wow is a massive world created by Blizzard Entertainment. In this world individuals may choose characters to play, on two factions, the Horde and the Alliance. by choosing your faction, you choose a path in the game that sets you apart from the other half of the players. Also, you must choose not only a race, but a class. Race indicates what kind of character you will be playing be it Human, Night Elf, Blood Elf, Tauren etc. An individuals class is the kind of abilities your character will have, the World of Warcraft is filled with mages, druids, warlocks, warriors, priests, hunters, shamans, and paladins.

For my experiment I will be starting with a low level character and explore the world of warcraft and describe it along the way. I have got my account, downloaded the latest expansion (WoWs The Burning Crusade) and I am ready to play…lets see what the week has in store. Talk to you later digi-cult fans! I will see you in Azeroth!
