By now I assume most of our readers here have already heard of the great project that Kevin Michael Johnson and Blue Loon Films have been working on, called The Raid.
Essentially it is a documentary following the lives of a number of different raiders. It is more than “just a documentary”, its a great film that showcases why we play the games we play, why we enjoy World of Warcraft, why we enjoy the raiding enviornment, and why we become friends with our guildmates. I am very excited to see this.
A number of community sites and blogs are going to be giving away/contesting away tickets to this very exciting event! A full list of supporting websites/blogs is available here. It is with much gratitude to the folks over at Rawrcast and The Raid that I am very excited to share with you all that Tales of a Priest will be giving away 6 PAIRS of tickets. Entering is easy!
