No particularly strong theme for the last day of Old Links Week – just some posts from this year I thought I’d highlight again as particularly good, interesting or fun:
- I’ve got a soft spot for the incredibly unconventional A Tale In The Desert, and Jeromai amply illustrated why it’s so unique in this great post on Papyrus
- Rades, Zellviren and Tzufit formed a trifeca of interesting in our roundup of off-the-wall perspectives on Mists – bonus points to Rades for once again predicting WoW’s plot.
- Erinys’ series comparing classic literature to WoW plotlines was very cool, but the piece on Magetha Grimtotem and Lady Macbeth was particularly good
- Bravetank might have only had a brief stint as Official Theramore Travel Agent before the place went boom, but I think we can all agree she did a hilariously good job selling the holiday attractiions of this sleepy seaside town
- Rampant Coyote’s discussion of the evolution of games toward true RPGs was interesting for any tabletop gamer
- The discussion a couple of months ago on griefing, how to combat it, and whether that’s even possible is still very relevant and unlikely to go out of date any time soon
- And finally, I found Tzufit’s description of her mother’s discovery of the wonder of WoW both inspiring and touching
That’s it – I’ll be back next week! See you then.
