My home away from home…in WoW

2 weeks ago (wow, I’m falling behind), Syrco Owl posted an interesting question:

I’ve played WoW for many years now and I’ve spent a lot of time running and flying around exploring the different zones and areas in the game. Most of the zones are very unique and nothing like anything I’ve ever seen in real life, but some of them reminds me of where I’m from and they feel like home. (…)Now, tell me: What in WoW reminds you of your home?

As soon as I saw this question, I knew I had to make a post about it. The only problem is, Canada is a very diverse country, and you could drive for 30 minutes and you wouldn’t recognize the scenery. So, I thought about doing my home province. But, while Saskatchewan’s stereotype is that it’s “wheat fields and flat”, it’s actually more diverse than that. Yes, there are fields, but there are also forests and marshes and sand dunes and the Canadian Shield and giant lakes up north. So I took a step back and thought, The question is what reminds me of my home. So, here’s my home!

Pond in the back yard.

Bench in the side yard.

Gazebo in the back yard.

...And the entire back yard.

Now, the area I chose probably wouldn’t come to mind for most when they think of Saskatchewan, but walking around our yard and garden just made me realize why I loved questing in Eversong so much – hint: it’s because it reminds me of home. Eversong 1         Eversong 2

Now with bonus druid!

Eversong 4 Sure, these are a little more…decadent, than my own yard. But the decorations and colourful flowers and fountains and benches and tall trees with gorgeous gold and red leaves (at least in the fall) are still the same. I’m going to pass along Syrco’s question: What in WoW reminds you of your home? – Katherine
