We’re not the New York Times. We’re not going to throw up a paywall in front of our jargon (or get tricked by April Fool’s Day pranks). No, that would defeat the purpose of this blog, which is to express our great love of the medium that entertains us so thoroughly. To spread its word and highlight the highs and lows of the industry. But that doesn’t mean we don’t need money. We have domain fees, hosting charges and all that pesky camera equipment to worry about. And let’s not forget about the hamsters that run our gear. They need both food and water! Daily! Those needy critters.
One of the ways you can support LoreHound.com is by playing a game. Yes, that’s it. Fire up your browser of choice (like the one you’re in right now) and head over to Shakes & Fidget to make an account. The name may ring a bell, as it was once an extremely popular WoW comic, before Blizzard sent it a letter of the Cease & Desist nature. “No matter” the creators said. “We’ll just do something different with the property.” Fast forward a few months and a free-to-play browser game set in a hilarious fantasy world was born.
The title is basic, a text-based MUD fleshed out with hilarious art and quest text, which allows it to be played without giving it constant attention. Basic, yet highly addictive. Pick your actions and let your newly-created orc, human, gnome, dark elf, demon or dwarf ravage the countryside and assault dungeons for epic loot. “How epic?” you ask. How about chicken-based bazookas and bows made out of rockets epic. Is that epic enough for you?!
