- Me meeting up with my date
Ok now before I go on any further I think I should clear some things up from my previous post.
'NOT A REAL DATE' DISCLAIMER
-This was not a real date as such. We just both play the game and thought we could meet up in there to play on the same realm. The 'date' part was really a joke between us. And I know what she looks like in real life. She is not a fat dude with an impressive array of handguns as suggested by the gamers over on my 'GiantBomb.com' blog. Which I'll admit was quite funny.
However, she is in fact a hot girl. Yes that's right, hot girls do actually play games. Not all of them, just the ones with a good taste in hobbies.
And lastly, me and said girl are in fact dating in real life, that's probably the most important part of the disclaimer–
Meeting with someone on WoW is always tricky. Simply because everyone I know seems to be on different realms. After some discussion I and the princess had decided to meet on her realm. Mainly to do with the fact that she was a higher level than the character on my realm.
I was pretty cool with this, but being a somewhat old fashioned 'manly man', I did feel a bit castrated by her level 80 character
-I totally had the situation under control :/
And yes, I am the light red one. NOT PINK...light red. I was going for the Hellboy look.
So after meeting up in Darnassus (the night elf spawn point), I decided to head off to the Human capital city under the impression that there might be something cool to do there.
On the way there my date had turned into a wolf and then night elf mohawked me
At this point of the date I had realised two things. One- Mr T's hair is making a comeback in modern day pop culture. And 2- this isn't how I had planned the date in my mind.
So there I was a light red night elf with a Mohawk and my date had turned into a wolf. At this point though I started to worry. I've got no idea where in the city I was going to take her! Once again she took the lead, and said for me to follow her...
Eventually we arrived at Goldshire.
I had been at Goldshire before but never realised that it's the same place they used in the South Park episode (Make Love, Not Warcraft 2006). After goofing around with some of the locals and re-enacting scenes from that episode, we headed into a local inn and kicked back for a bit. Hey it's better than just talking on MSN.
Unfortunately at this point I had to disconnect as my laptop screen was about to get fixed by a planned in house engineer appointment. I had warned the princess about this pre game, and she was pretty cool about it.
Thanks to a speedy fix I was back in Azeroth in about 15 minutes! At this point however though my date had left Goldshire and gone on a quest somewhere up north. I had decided to use my Hearthstone and teleport back to Darnassus for a hopeful pick up by the princess.
But then disaster struck! Waiting for me at the teleport point was a band of Horde looking mighty vicious. Three of them, one of which appeared to be the leader were seated on a crazed rhino. Me forgetting that I was on a 'normal' realm, and being somewhat stupid; walked up to the toughest looking one and struck it with my staff. Within 1 minute I was a spirit looking down on my awesome Hellboy light red body.
So I realised there was only one thing I could do, I had to call the princess for help. I managed to resurrect my body when the Horde had their back turned whilst ganging up on some other poor Night Elf. I ran into a nearby house and immediately contacted her. She just said 'stay put I'll be there'.
- Me hiding out, I mean waiting for the princess to arrive. I wasnt really hiding...
Within 5 minutes, she writes 'ok, all gone'. I'm thinking 'hmm maybe she's joking'. I slowly peer out through the doorway and scan the area. Peaceful. And there she was. Standing in front of me with her awesome axe weapon in hand. I think I'm in love
We then had virtual sex. JUST KIDDING! We called it a night.
'AFTER READING' DISCLAIMER TO AVOID REPETITIVE COMMENTS- No, I don't actually think I'm in love. Yes I realise that my Samurai/Hellboy character is sort of a pinkish colour. No, seriously she is not a fat dude with loads of handguns.
