InPiPoMo: Finale

This post is part of IntPiPoMo: posting 50 screenshots in 30 days.

And so another IntPiPoMo has come to an end. Thanks so much to everyone who took part this year, and all those who visited, commented or retweeted!

I think some people hit their 50 images way before today (eg Navimie, Godmother, Akabeko!) and others didn't quite make it, but there have been some beautiful contributions from Pandaria, the old world and real photos too, not to mention other games!

I've added some of my pics to my Gallery page. You're welcome to download any you like for your own desktop.

There are some fantastic bloggers and (in-game and out, sometimes) photographers in this list. Please pay them a visit if you can.

I hope you've enjoyed the event, and if you're a NaNoWriMo winner, congrats!

Call to Arms: Secret Santa 2012

This is a quick call to arms for all you Aussie and Kiwi twitterers and Wow players out there!

Liala, or @Discopriest as she is also known, is organising a Secret Santa for Wow players. She will be pairing up those living in the same country where possible. Here's where I come in - I'm the only Aussie to sign up so far, so I have no-one to send to!

If you're an Aussie or a Kiwi (or you're from any other country for that matter!), you can join in with this exciting event. There's just one catch - the deadline to sign up is November 28th! That's the middle of our Thursday, Aussies and Kiwis, so get on it as soon as you can!

Sorry for the late notice, but I only found out there were no Aussies on the list this morning!

To sign up, enter your details into Liala's mailing list, here. You should get an email or two with some more details about the event, and a short questionnaire to fill out that will be sent to your Santa.

Incidentally, I would be more than happy to adopt a Cinder Kitty...

How Does This Secret Santa Work? 
Each participant will send out a Christmas gift package to a randomly selected WoW/Twitter friend. You'll keep your identity secret until your recipient gets their gift. The value of the contents should be around $20. Festive wrapping paper optional.

You will receive your Secret Santa gift recipient's name and a copy of their questionnaire on Friday, November 30th, and will have between then and December 15th to mail your gift to your recipient.

All of the gift givers and getters (Twitter identities only) will be revealed on December 24th on, along with links to related blog posts and any images of gifts/happy people enjoying gifts that anyone wants to send in.

What About Privacy? 
The only people who will see the address of your package are the person who is sending it to you and @Discopriest. If you would like, you do not have to give your actual name; however, you will have to provide an address where you can pick up your package. Because otherwise, well... it would just sit in package limbo somewhere. If there is someone you definitely do not want to receive from for reasons of security, please let @Discopriest know immediately.

IntPiPoMo: Wyrmrest

This post is part of IntPiPoMo: posting 50 screenshots in 30 days.

The Wow 8th Anniversary [Celebration Package] has encouraged me to dust off a few alts. Angelya, my baby shadow priest, has been languishing in Northrend for a while. Today I took her through the Wrathgate quest chain, and while I tried to take some screenshots during the cinematic, they didn't work!

I did get these few snaps of Wyrmrest Temple, though.

Shared Topic: Thankful

Blog Azeroth Thanksgiving Event 2012

I'm taking a little break from my IntPiPoMo posting to bring you this post as part of the Blog Azeroth Shared Topic for this week. This particular topic was brought to you by Amerence!

It's Thanksgiving over there in America this week, and although we Aussies don't celebrate it, it's still nice to reflect on things we are thankful for.

I'm coming up on my third blogaversary here at R&R and although I've been very quiet during this year, I am soooo thankful for all the readers that are still dropping by and saying hello from time to time. I'm not going to name anyone in case I miss people, but you make this all worthwhile! Yes, you! I don't tend to get a lot of comments but I love it when I do, so thank you all!

I hope, whatever you are up to this weekend, you have a lovely time in your Heartland with your family, friends or whomever you spend it with.

This post is part of IntPiPoMo: posting 50 screenshots in 30 days.

So, we're over halfway through November now - how's your total coming along, words or pictures? I've got a bit of catching up to do to stay on track...

The Pandaren love to travel by balloon. Here are just a few of the balloon locations from around Pandaria and the Wandering Isle.
