Mage, magus, sorcerer, warlock...?

My new sister is a ...

Actually in French it is easy, she is a "mage".

I don't know exactly how to name her in English as I found several translations: mage (in WoW Official Strategy Guide), magus (in Harraps's Compact Dictionnaire), sorcerer (in and warlock (I don't remember where I found this one)

Anyway Manomag is a human mage, whereas my other "alts" are rogue elf (Manonnen) and rogue undead forsaken (Nennonam)

Although my new character can have tremendous powers, she still has to wait for the tram to come.

I knew better means of teleportation, I will have to be patient before getting some special tricks.

No, no, a mage does not have horns that would grow in the open.

And at the end of the day even a mage can be tired and need some deserved rest.

Where are going all this people deserting Second Life?
I hope not in WoW, we are numerous enough.

Invent (s)tory

There is one thing WoW has in common with SL.

No, it is not the beauty of the bank front office...

It is the problematic management of your inventory.

Not that you are lost in your numerous items, but instead you dramatically lack room for new stuff.

And my pockets are as empty as an island in SL

Oh, by the way, I received a picture from my (bad) sister.

Did I tell you she is a rogue like me?

Now I've got a sister, a bad one...

I wanted to experiment the other side.

My sister is an undead forsaken.

After all, in those second lives we all actually are sort of undead.

Forsaken, it's another story.

Don't be afraid to come and see me.

I've got a pet

I began the day with a dazzle.

No, the murlocs are not my best friends...
I was only here to open their coffers.

Here is my best friend.

I was for nothing in the wreckage, I swear it!

At last a good yawn and the day is over.

A good pet is a pet you can ride.

Angry or hungry? That is the question.

Yes, it's me.

Do not rely on appearances, they always lie.

Tout feu tout flamme

J'aime voyager dans des contrées lointaines au péril de ma vie.

Mais seulement quand je ne cours aucun risque.

Hum...est-ce si sûr que cela...que je ne cours aucun risque...?

Enfin, on verra bien.

La seconde vie est une rivière sinueuse dans laquelle on n'attrape pas les bons poissons.

Overview of the situation

When you know you are playing a game, you do not pretend living another life.
