I thought I'd post more about my WoW characters and history. I started playing in Marc h 2006 when a few of my friends from work kept talking about the game. One day, I spent some time on the official website looking over classes and backstory, etc. Instead of testing out using the 10-day trial, I just went and bought the game that night (back when there was only one to buy.) My friends were playing on Eitrigg, but that server was “locked” that night, so I just created a new character on another server (I have forgotten which by now.) Had fun on there, got confused a few times, talked to some weird know, all the normal things.

I finally was able to create a character on Eitrigg the next day. I liked the sound of the Rogue when I was reading up on the game so I picked that as my first class. It was an Undead Rogue named Sideshow, since my friends were also Horde. I picked that name since he had a crazy hairstyle that reminded me of a circus freak. Sideshow is currently my main (at level 78) and still the most fun to play for me.

Since then most of the friends that were on there have either stopped playing WoW or have gone onto other servers. One friend stayed from early on, but he plays mainly Alliance. The second character I ever created was Alliance (since I wanted to try both factions.) I made him a hunter since the pets looked fun and I named him Gertbee (inspiration). Currently, he's at level 71. Amazingly, he's the only Gertbee in the game according to the Armory. I play him here and there. But, Horde is still where my heart is at.

The other characters I have that I play “regularly,” as in here and there (On Eitrigg unless otherwise noted):

  • Zideshow – Level 69 Undead Mage (also used as an auction mule since Teleporting is wonderful!)
  • Luminthia – Level 40 Blood Elf Priest (learning how to Healz)
  • Zod – Level 46 Tauren Hunter (not played as much due to my higher hunter, but I dare not lose the name.)
  • Zepar – Level 21 Undead Warrior (learning how to Tank)
  • Gudrott – Level 61 Orc Death Knight (I had to, you know)
  • Jazzerus – Level 30 Night Elf Druid on Azgalor-PvP (A friend of mine is on here, plus trying the Druid)

I assume Darcy will list her's in no time. Think she's feeling a bit under-the-weather right now. Wish her well.

We are a family of gamers. Mom (Darcy/Syrana) and Dad (Brian/Sideshow) have been gaming for as long as they can remember back when you only had a joystick to use and saved your games to cassette tapes.

They've been gaming together since they met in 2002. Sometime after 2006, they both started playing World of Warcraft and did that for many years. They started this blog, originally called Sideshow & Syrana which has now transitioned to the new Stay-At-Home Gamers site, while keeping all of the original content.

Starting in 2010, two more gamers came along (now known as Princess Boo and Mr. X) and they are now old enough where they both enjoy playing games and watching others play games. They are both excited to have others to watch them play their favorite games. Come along with us and let's enjoy these games together!
