By popular demand, we're returning one of the reader favorite columns. For as many different World of Warcraft players as there are out there, there are equally as many different WoWspaces for people to game in. Each week, we'll bring you a WoWspace sent in by one of our readers and let them tell you all about it. Would you like to share your own personal space? Just drop some pictures and your description to us here at readerwowspace AT gmail.com!
This week we have a WoWspace that includes not just our regular reader, Ten, but also Ten's husband's WoWspace so that they can kind of game "face to face" together. Curious? Read on for all the info, courtesy of Ten, aka Laelvalin / Vijanwi!
My workspace is truly a bubble of space in itself. I sit directly across my husband's computer desk, and together, our computer 'island' (flooded with light from the huge windows, hiss!) takes up a third of the living room. Which I incidentally think is just the right amount.
I've been playing WoW since 2005 and have severe altitis, but my two mains (yes, two) are my Warlock Laelvalin and my Warrior Vijanwi. Prot all the way from level 1 on. Altitis has a side effect of masochism, I guess. I raid a little and level alts a lot, but I'm really in the game for the RP with my awesome guildies. My husband tried to get into the game as well, but he just can't find much fun in it. A shame, since our computer space is so optimal for beating each other up on screen.
My computer is a slightly old, but trusty and often upgraded Packard Bell, and my most precious possession is my Wacom tablet, which works just fine as a mouse-pad too ;).My screen rests on one or the other volume of Harry Potter. It's the perfect height. What else are books for? The little dice cups are a reminder of my pen & paper gamer side. They are actually filled with equally little d6, for when I have a sudden fit of wanting to make a new D&D char.
My desk is not always that orderly, especially when I had a long WoW session, during which my faithful servant... I mean husband, brings me all the food and drink I desire. And more often than not, I have at least one of my two cats claiming the desk in the name of Spain. Or Kitten. (Don't ask about the feline play ground called Cable Hell under the desks. It would suck your soul in.)
That's it for this week's Reader WoWspace of the Week. We'll be back next Sunday with another close look into the scene behind the scenes from another reader's home. If you're feeling brave and would like to show off your own personal space, drop us some wowspace pictures and your description of the space to readerwowspace AT gmail.com. (And if you sent one in before but it wasn't featured, please re-send it so we have it!)
