Twisted Nether Blogcast

Episode 163 on the Twisted Nether Blogcast is coming up this afternoon with me as today’s special guest. If you’d like to listen and join the the live chat, please do. It should be on from 2pm (server time/Sydney time) or 8pm Pacific time if you’re on the other side of the world.

So I have to say that it was a lot of fun talking to Fimlys and Hydra today. Thanks very much for having me on the show.

The one question I didn’t fully answer though was how I came up with my main toon names. I started talking about my Hunter Tallys who was my first main but then kind of went kind off on another tangent; but back to the question.

Cymre was first spelt as Cymry, a name I used for one of my Hunters pet names. Coolidge (Hugadarn back then) had helped me find and tame the rare cat Broken Tooth in Badlands and I wanted to do something special for him, so tried to think of a name that had something to do with his as a thank you.

After some research, I found that Cymry was the name of a Celtic race or group (depending on where you look) that followed Hu Gadarn – the Druid horned God. Over time, when I created my Priest, I decided to name my main Çymry. The spelling may have changed a little, but the idea remains the same.

I was also asked what I thought Blizz did wrong with Cataclysm. At the time, I couldn’t really think of anything but this is what I would have said (had I remembered). I really think it was a mistake that you could literally level up to 85 in about a day *cough Bel ;P Speed levelling for people who are starting toons might be a good idea if you’ve done the content already but you miss so much of the lore with the XP boosts and heirlooms nowadays. Sure it’s nice to experience the content in the latest x-pac but why the rush for 80’s getting to 85? Take your time… I’m really looking forward to taking my sweet time levelling when Mists comes out. Coolidge and I plan to do a lot of exploring before we even start on quests.

Another big thank you to all the listeners who tuned into this blogcast. Fimlys was saying it was a record for guests in the live chat :P After the interview, Coolidge told me there were around 30 listeners. Holy crap! I though there were only the 7 that I could see from the initial chat window :)

If you missed out on the live interview, that’s ok since it’s up on the Twisted Nether site now.

  2. just finished listening to the podcast. Sounded like fun and was interesting too. You mentioned about blogrolls and how you liked Blogger with that feature, You may wanna check out WP Social blogroll. It actually does it.

    • Thx for the tip. Glad you enjoyed it :)

      As far as I know you can only use that plugin on self-hosted sites and not the free one like mine. You can actually do it if you set the modules up separately for each blog but I don’t really want to do that ;P

  3. Understandable, I’ve never used the WP version your using so never know what is allowed or not. I guess I always liked dabbling with different CMS myself before I realized WP s by the best.

    Still Love ya blog ^_^
