Brain: What do you care, you are a Mage writing Mage Blog
Gnomeaggedon: Yeah, but this is BRK!
Brain: /Scoff. You don’t even have a Hunter!
Gnomeaggedon: Yes I do, Snowdabow was my first toon!
Brain: Much loved too. When was the last time you played him?
Gnomeaggedon: Ummm 2 servers and 2 releases ago…
Brain: Yeah, see unloved.
Gnomeaggedon: Hey I love Snowdabow, it’s just back in those days I was fighting an uphill battle against the Huntard label. I knew what I was doing, I even wrote how to play Hunters on the Guild forums.
Brain: So you shelved your hunter because others were so bad, but you were so good?
Gnomeaggedon: Well, no. But BRK’s blog wasn’t born back there, an it was hard work keeping up. Along came a major change to Hunters and a server move by all my friends, so Snowdabow was retired.
Brain: But you still love your Hunter….
Gnomeaggedon: You bet, Here Brain look at this…
Gnomeaggedon: See, I love him so much that I have kept him in Halloween gear (just like Pugnacious Priest – and I have another one in Halloween gear too!), and not this last Halloween either, that bat outfit is years old. I still check in on him every month or so… don’t ask me why. Just long enough to say hello to him and Altas, not so long that he looses his bat costume.
Brain: That’s a scruffy dog with your hunter. Couldn’t do better?
Gnomeaggedon: Better? Better than Atlas. My 1st pet, named by my wife, with me from the first day I could tame beasts. Sure he’s old, but scruffy isn’t fair!
Brain: Whatever, you won’t even notice BRK’s absence.
Gnomeaggedon: No, no I will miss BRK. BRK is more than a Hunter Blog, more than an institution. He is, or was, an awesome presence in the WoW Blogsphere. I will sorely miss him, but kudos to him for setting the right priorities – I know first hand how difficult that can be… maybe I should follow his excellent example.
Brain: Queue 21 gun salute!
Gnomeaggedon & his brain will miss Big Red Kitty and his brain very much… Take care… live well & long!
Gnomer and Out!
