The Homestarmy is growing!

Good news for The Homestarmy, my World of Warcraft guild (in case you’re wondering, the name is a reference from Homestar Runner)! We’ve gradually been introducing our friends and family to WoW, and we’re now up to around 13 active members. It’s been great recently, as having 6 people online at the same time is no longer an extreme rarity, and we have 6 players at level 70, with another 4 over level 60. Now is a heady time of wild speculation and forecasts of being able to run Karazhan in the near future. Now I know that having only 10 level 70 players means that all 10 have to be available every time we want to run the 10-man raid dungeon, but it’s great to dream. Maybe we’ll just pug a missing player or two.

Laeral has pretty much become my main, with Kinz relegated to off-hours work. I’ve been slowly accumulating honor and marks to buy the Merciless Gladiator’s Right Ripper for Kinz (once Season 4 comes out), and helping level guildies, but most of my work has been with my paladin. I’m working on improving my gear to a point where I will be able to main tank Karazhan, and having enough level 70 guildmates to run dungeons is really helping me reach my goal. I recently ran Mana-Tombs and got my Flesh Beast’s Metal Greaves. My short term goals are as follows:

Once I get all that acomplished I should be ready to tank Karazhan! It’s an exciting prospect. More updates when they happen.

Today’s flash game is a little something called Vector Tower Defense. Once upon a time. there was a real-time strategy game called Warcraft 3. This game came with a level editor with which players could create their own maps for the game. One day, someone created a map in which waves of monsters would traverse a winding route toward the player’s base. The twist was that no mobile units could be built for defense, and the player had to rely on static towers to shoot down the invaders. The map became very popular, and some enterprising player decided to create a web-based version of the game using Flash. More Flash versions of the Tower Defense game appeared, including Vector Tower Defense, in which all the graphics drawn with retro-style vectors. Different towers are strong against different types of enemies, as well as having different properties, such as a burst attack or a slowing attack. Check it out!
