Putting the chic into chicanery

I’m a mature grrl gamer. I live with my fiancé, two dogs, two birds and a cat in a house in California. I work for a big media company and make almost enough money to buy a house in California. My unofficial job title is “Evil Queen of Ads” officially I’m a “Senior Software Engineer” (the official title is boring).

I’m a dedicated player of World of Warcraft. I started playing WoW in February 2007, yes, I’m a BC baby. I had my first 70, a draenei named Tatia the Holy Paladin, in August 2007. I took a long break towards the end of Cataclysm.

I won’t say I play a lot of toons.. but I do have quite a few. Nibuca (used to be named Lilac) is my current main. She’s an gnome affliction Warlock who was my first 80 (December 2008) and then my first 85 (December 2010) and then my first 90 (February 2013). I also have a smattering of other toons of different races, classes and levels. I love raiding and leveling almost equally. I’m pro-addons and anti-smurfing. I don’t PVP, it makes me cuss.

I started blogging about WoW about 2 weeks after I started playing (February 2007). For a while I was a co-host of Twisted Nether Blogcast (April 2009-August 2010), a podcast about WoW and the bloggers/podcasters who talk about Wow. At one point I was also a co-host of The Overlores, a podcast about Leveling and Lore in WoW. I’ve learned a lot along the way and I hope to share it with others. This blog is (I feel) evenly split between hard-hitting class/game specific posts, toon progression reports.. and whiny/fun-to-read kvetching. I do all equally and without schedule.

I also play in the SCA as Baroness Sylvie la chardonniere.

I’d love to get email at WoW-mail@fibergeek.com or you can follow me on twitter as Nibuca.
