Currently on my crafting table:
Behold... The Sword of a Thousand Truths in Real Life!
Straight out of the 'South Park' episode 'Make Love Not Warcraft' and is currently a real item in the 'World of Warcraft'. Many people including myself started playing the game because of this episode and yet there is nothing on the Internet of anyone making this cosplay sword. I however am doing it right. I spared no expense and have learn the ways of professional crafting to bring you an authentic glowing replica complete with wall mount and plaque showing it's stats.
The sword is almost finished. I have all the mats. It's just this blasted cold weather and my lack of a warm shop that's holding it up.
I am also producing a marketing video for it. The first version will cost $350.00 USD
Have you ever been to a GameStop the night before an expansion for Warcraft was released?
If so, you will have most likely found a huge group of awesome and fun, hardcore fans lined up around the little strip-mall.
They come out of their nerd caves for one night and we really begin to actually see how many there are around us. This is the hidden MMORPG gamer community! We don't go to bars, hell we don't go out at all unless we're out of bacon or something.
I have always thought wow, wouldn't it be great if we all had a way to find each other in our local area. Think about this... Every week the server's go down for 6 hours and millions and millions of people world-wide are wondering at once around the Internet looking for something to do, someone to connect with.
I'll make this short. I'm very excited about this community! It's going to be HUGE!! and AWESOME!!! Come join us every Tuesday night for our weekly Online All Night Live Server Maintenance Party ٩(˘◡˘)۶
I come from a time when fantasy worlds could only be experienced in one’s imagination as defined from books and a hand full of movies. Growing up back then one not only developed a powerful imagination but also the ability to suspend one’s disbelief. If I could have looked into the future back then and seen today’s MMORPG’s it would all seem like a crazy awesome dream. Interacting with real people in a persistent world that keeps on existing even after you log off. Knowing that there will always be someone there no matter when you log in. Creating a unique character in a virtual world where you can be the kind of person you want to be. A world where others only see the character you pretend to be. No one cares who you are in real life in this social network, just how fun you are to be with. You can pretend to be a noble knight or a reprehensible thief, ether way there are no repercussions for how you act. In an environment where you can act how ever you want it shows a lot about who you real are.
Although the game mechanic aspect of MMORPG’s can sometimes be frustrating, unfair, and even boring at times, it’s the social interaction that is exciting to me. It is not just being able to chat with friends, it's knowing you are battling real people that makes it endlessly compelling and all ways new. Real people are much more unpredictable but best of all when you win a fight you know you got the better of someone real, somewhere. Even if I lose at least it was a shared experience between two or more people. When you get 30 or 60 real people together in a battle it’s absolutely epic. Imagine that many people in the real world out in a field somewhere having a mock battle.
Other awesome aspects of the MMORPG's are the amazing musical scores that like the worlds themselves continue to evolve. Music has a way of invoking emotions. We make mental connections that create memories, memories that we grow more fond of in time. Sometimes I like to just sit up on my favorite hill in Arathi Highlands next to a campfire, listen to the music, and just reflect on when the World of Warcraft was new to me. When untold adventures and friendships awaited; when I was so proud of my level 40 sword that I worked so hard to get, and my cool looking new helm that I ventured far to find.
To me MMO’s aren’t really games. They are so much more. They are a garden where we can grow into the character we want to be, not who others put us into. So when something crazy happens in our real lives we instinctively react the way we should react, and not the way we are expected to. This real world that we are thrown into is sometimes boring and opportunities to prove your valor and heroism are hard to come by. By getting out of this world for a while and being a great warrior in a world filled danger and excitement helps us to lose that image of ourselves that others impose on us and break free of the cycles we get trapped in from everyday life.
Just like in game (WoW anyway) MMO Nation has an Auction House. With it we can support each other. The more we support our own community the less we have to grind for the gold in real life, and the more we can game.
It's simple, just craft something, anything related to an MMORPG. It could be anything your heart desires from artwork to clothing and everything in between. Send in a picture of your craft with a description and price and we will post it here (note the AH is under construction). Once your item sells and you are payed you just ship it to your buyer (we take a 5% finders fee). We will offer customer assistance through email and soon by phone if the funding comes in.
The first large scale project on the art table is a comic book about Swifty / aka John Pile and other Youtuber's such as Bajheera, Hotted, and Panser in an epic tale of adventure.
Coming soon - The Swifty comic book - First Epic issue - The Multi-boxer War.
Watch as Swifty and friends battle a one man army in their real lives and in-game in a comic book years in the making.
I rewrote these real life personalities into an existing story that I had, breathing new life into it, making it even more awesome. I swapped my main villain; a hacker, with a much more real threat, "the Multiboxer". Based on actual events and mixed with a story I've been working on for years. An epic tale filled with action and drama.
To be released as an e-comic on Kindle and later as a limited print run. I will fund it on Patreon, Kickstarter, and a few other crowd funding sites. Some of the rewards for donating will be original artwork, the ebook version, and early access to the limited print version, more.
