It is my personal pleasure to direct all of you to the grand premiere of the new home of loldruid fun and games, The Road to Blizzcon!
Some are calling it a brand new webcomic, but I think that it is a much greater treasure.
You see, the site is being done by two truly cool people, Doodlebug and Eustacious, and I am fortunate enough to be able to say that I have actually chatted with them both. They is like, teh uber leet coolness x500. I haz had a brush with greatness! Or at least some minor grooming.
The Road to Blizzcon will document the adventures of our two droods as they try to make their way from Azeroth to the epic coolness of Blizzcon.
I am certain that, quite often, hijinks will ensue.
Hijinks, I said!
So check it out, bookmark it, enjoy it… leave your crankiness at the door (I’ll certainly try) and just enjoy the light hearted druid fun!
Thank you to a reader known by the cryptic name “twww”… she alerted me this morning that Looking For Group has started pre-order for a second run of the Richard statue.
I got MY order in, baby! [insert evil cackle here]
Ah, that will so damn sweet sitting on my desk next to my Megatokyo Boo plushie with the guardian angel wings.
Whattaya think? Isn’t that the best evil/good match up ever? Richard likes flaming small, furry things… and Boo is a badass small furry guy with a sweet heart full of gold.
Place yer bets! Richard may be powerful, but can I help it if I want to see Boo with a rocket launcher and a jet pack win the day?
And half my readers are saying, “what the heck is he smoking today?”.
That’s cool, that’s cool. I gots me a Richard statue on da way.
Is By Way of Booty Bay a webcomic?
Frankly, I dinna ken. I think so… it’s comics, and they’re like, on the web. Ya know?
There is just a ton of neat WoW themed stuff, and it’s fun. Be advised, however, some of it’s on the risque side. On the other hand, hot orc chicks and some unsavory Druid cross-faction shenanigans. Amusing, at the least.
For example, there was one that made me think of Squirrelz (a player in my guild), as such;
And then there was another that made me want to adopt my new all time favorite Alliance warcry…
“Unleash Monkey Overdrive!”So hey, go have fun, check it out. I am barely started on their archives, and I’m having a blast.
It occurs to me that not EVERYONE in the known universe may have seen a certain…. webcomic.
This blog is, after all, about Feral Druids. I feel I have a certain duty to my public.
(Bellwether is already screaming “Noooooo!!!!!!” I can hear it!)
Yep, there is a comic out there about Feral Druids.
It’s the one the adult Feral Druids all know about, but no one admits to having seen.
It was posted on the World of Raids website. It features, for the geeky among you, a certain CSI/Judge Dredd theme….
It should be safe for work. Your howls of outrage, laughter, or disgust may not be.
I present to you the “most twisted Feral Druid webcomic of all time that is still somehow appropriate for most audiences”.
You can thank me later.
No, not from me.
Looking For Group today has showed how they can step up to the stage and bring us the funny.
I ain’t gonna blow the surprise punchline from that comic, but let me say that I think it takes genius to go out into the game, take one of the tiredest, most overdone sad-ass concepts from the forums, and just seize it and make it fresh, new, and funny.
Yes, Youtube used the same concept as the foundation for their April Fool’s gag, but this just takes it to the next level.
Way to go, Blind Ferret.
That’s right, all of you wonderful, wonderful people!
The greatest WoW comic in all of existence (and yes, I know, that other one is awesome, and this other one is pretty damn good too) is alive!
Oh happy day, oh happy day. New episodes, oh happy day!
What’s that? You’ve never read The Scout Report?
Start from the beginning.
But make DAMN sure you take it slow, and read through the archives with care, savoring each one. Because when you’re done, you’re gonna cry for more.
I found it funny that the patch notes, at least for hunters, show a change that almost seem directly inspired by Scott Kurtz’s WoW comic Ding!.
Check it out. First, the comic in question that talks about Hunters.
And then, check out the patch notes, and specifically read the section about Hunter changes.
And I quote from the patch notes;
Instead of a rant, I’m going to bring a smile to your face.
I know I will.
Just follow the link, and smile.
You’re just gonna love this.
And a few strips later, we leave the sweet and cute and enter the realm of the wildly inappropriate, and yet hysterically funny.
SAdly, it’s the inappropriate one that’s WoW related.
Well, not playing, so much as ‘have written’ your song.
Bellwether of the awesome blog 4 Haelz has written what I think is a Grammy-worthy epic ballad proclaiming the triumph of all that is Feral…
I urge you to go forth and bask in the joy of… “Feralicious”.
I am working feverishly to find someone to sing this sucker, but somehow, I’m not finding a lot of volunteers. Dang it.
Oh, and speaking of basking in the joy, a whole bunch of great bloggers have mentioned a WoW webcomic I’d never heard of before… and reading the archives brought me untold joy. What an awesome hunter.
Okay, anything that makes me laugh in delight at the sheer evil is full of win, as far as I’m concerned. Please go blow a few minutes checking out The Scout Report. I’m serious, it’s amazing. And thank you to Ratshag for being the first this weekend to slap me about the head and shoulders with it’s greatness.
Yeah, since I’m all commercial and everything these days, I thought I’d rip off the thin veneer of original thought that I’ve used to conceal my hard, grasping, greedy corporate heart, and blatantly plug someone for cash.
Go read the latest Looking For Group. Go ahead, I’ll wait.
Every time you click that link, 15 billion dollars and 72 cents is deposited into my secret offshore account.
And on another note…
“Kill yourself and roll a Rogue. We’ll wait.”
