Xero asked me to post a history of Sanctuary. I figured I’d do it here instead of on our website, as I’m used to typing extensively on Windows Live Writer. I’ll begin with the story of how Term and I started to play WOW. Here we go 🙂
My son (Term) started playing WOW in June of 2008. A classmate of his was playing, and he created a character on that realm (I can’t remember which one, though I remember it was a PvP realm). His friend was higher level, though, and Term found it hard to keep up with him. So he continued to play and level, mostly on his own. He asked me a few times to try it, but I was playing Neverwinter Nights (both solo and with some friends), and I really didn’t want to try a new game.
One Saturday in late June/early July my wife and son were gone, and I decided to give the game a try. I rolled a human Mage on the recommended server (Terokkar) and proceeded to die over and over again. 🙂 I did not know how spells/abilities worked, I had no idea how mana came and went, and I had lots of trouble actually facing mobs to kill them.
So I logged out, read up on the game a bit, and decided to roll a human Paladin (I liked the description of their gameplay and abilities). Several hours later, when my wife and son got home, I was still playing – Term was overjoyed. 🙂
We shared an account at that point, with Term and I taking turns playing. He continued to play on his realm, and me on mine.
Tomorrow: the story continues 🙂
Blessings & Peace
