LFG: Wishlist Feature Set

LFGTL;DR version
The current LFG tools sucks.

I think it needs the following features:
– Signup for more than 3 places
– Save signups per toon
– Allow you to monitor LFG for a toon’s signups even when you’re on an alt.
– Allow you to inspect (gear/talents) people in the LFG queues.

Waste of damn time

NO! It is evil and bad to think to ones self, “self, if you multiboxed you could get a new copy of the game, two months of playtime, one month of free time and a shiny new Zhevra. I mean it’s only $70.. and well it’s a Zhevra. You know you want to.”

Now, [...]

I can had vacation

Pennsic 37I was here. Remember that other hobby I occasionally talk about? The SCA? No. Hrm.. You need to pay more attention.

Ok. For my other all-time-consuming hobby I play in the SCA (The Society for Creative Anachronism). It’s a medieval recreation group that studies and recreates the middle ages (from 600-1600 AD). I cook and sew. Fiancee fights and makes armor (This is heavy marshal combat where they wear medieval armor for protection and use rattan weapons). Together we camp in a medieval-like manner and occasionally go to “war”. An SCA war is when several large groups get together to fight on the battle field.. and then drink and carouse together afterwards. Oh.. there’s also some really great class.. and shopping.

Pictured is the Pennsic battlefield. Pennsic is the largest SCA war. The event lasts for two weeks. I was only able to go for “War Week”, the second week. This picture shows only a slice of the encampments. There were ~10,000 people in attendance. Think of Pennsic as a medievally themed Burning Man.. only without the caustic alkoli desert that will strip your flesh off your bones. Oh.. and with more medieval classes and shopping. Did I mention the shopping? (I so totally blew my budget)

It was -terribly- fun. If you ever get a chance, I -highly- recommend it.
