This week I transfered my blog from BossytheCow.com to Keith-Baker.com. I immediately received the following email:
Hello, my name is Freya and I am a WoW addict.
I was once coerced into killing Bossy the Cow by some mean ol’ NPCs. As I’m sure you can understand, I found this to be a horribly traumatic experience. Here is my question: is this the real Bossy, your Bossy, the only Bossy who really matters? If so I shall feel even more like a heel and boycott that quest on any other character I ever run who ventures anywhere near Booty Bay. Ever.
I mean, I once put her image on a cake… Traumatized, I tell you.
Needless to say, this was deeply disturbing to hear. I leapt to the nearest Google search engine and was able to unearth the following image:
COULD IT BE TRUE? Was this the reason we’d changed websites – because Bossy had been pulled into some sort of terrible trap? I ran to my desk, and to my great relief, found that Bossy was still there.
I asked her about it, and she explained.
“I was moo-nlighting on WoW, kid. It’s not the best role I’ve ever had, but that’s show business. It beats waiting on tables.”
“Wait – when did you get a job?” I said.
“No, literally waiting on a table, kid. It’s not like I’ve got a lot to do.”
So Freya, don’t worry about doing the quest. Just remember, when the Academy Awards come around, who deserves the Best Supporting Bovine in a MMORPG Quest award!
In other news, Jenn and I have expanded our household by two, somewhat to the consternation of Mr Pants:
Our two new kittens are named Fey and Haggis. Jenn observes that it’s like we’re living in an adorable YouTube video stuck on permanent loop!
I’ve gotten a lot of good Eberron questions and some interesting general RPG-related questions over the last few days, and I also want to write about my overall experience at PAX. For now, I’m going to answer a few quick questions – check back for those other topics in the week to come!
Tremendously bummed I missed your panels at PAX – can I find them online anywhere?
As far as I know, they weren’t recorded. If anyone knows otherwise, please fill me in!
Did you announce your cool new project at PAX? Will there be a blog post/press release?
I briefly mentioned my cool new project at my Eberron panel. Our goal is to release at GenCon 2013, so I’m not going into too much detail yet. However, expect to see a blog post here sometime in the next few weeks.
That’s all for today. If you’ve asked questions on other topics, check back – I’ll get to them as soon as I can. If you have new questions or ideas for things you’d like to see here on Keith-Baker.com, let us know below!
Oh, and in Kickstarter news, here’s the latest projects that I’m getting in on… Get Bit and Unexploded Cow (don’t worry… it’s Bossy approved!).
