Azeroth Interrupted: Using WoW to teach children values

Kids on the internet is (or at least should be) a pretty scary thing for parents. There are predators, perverts or people with questionable ideas that you just don't want to expose your children to. I find it odd, therefore, that so many parents let their elementary school age children play WoW unsupervised. They must see it as an electronic babysitter like television or single player video games rather than what it really is: having your child be babysat by 9 million potential weirdos. These children attempt to get much needed guidance and attention from whatever stranger happens to be nearby. More than just exposing children to negative influences, these parents are missing out on a great opportunity to teach their children some very important life lessons.

It’s fast, light, and powerful. Spot other roleplayers at a glance, see which RP AddOns they are using, and get a quick overview of their character in the tooltip! Change your character’s name; add a last name—or whatever you wish!

What if your character’s appearance changes, say when they wear different clothes, or shapeshift into different forms?

First Crop of 4e Tools

It was a 1500 word article on teaching a RPG to new players, I’ll repost it here as soon as Johnn puts it on his site. That also means that I have no meaty article for here this morning… time for some linkys! Fans are taking initiative in the wake of WotC’s on par performance with DNDinsider (i.e. they always sucked at software) and making some incredibly useful tools for D&D 4e.

First and foremost is Asmor’s Random 4e Encounter generator. You plug in the Encounter level, the number of PCs and the difficulty of the encounter. The results might not make a whole lot of sense… but some of the encounters presented in the Monster Manual aren’t all that logical either. Use them to stretch those creativity muscles and don’t forget that an encounter now is usually spread over larger area (i.e multiple dungeon rooms). Also from Asmor, here’s his 4e Monster Math Cruncher. Asmor, you are a freaking Genius! Related. John Kim's Styles of Roleplaying Page.
