IntPiPoMo – With Pleasure Domes and Sunless Seas

So I’d almost decided that I wasn’t going to bother posting my last shots because December had all but snuck up on me but a chance remark in guild chat provided the inspiration I was lacking. On route to kill the Lich King someone started quoting Coleridge and in that moment, this post was born. So with apologies to the poet and thanks to a guild mate, I’d like to present the Azeroth version of Kubla Khan which takes me from picture number 40 all the way to 50.
 

In Xanadu did Kubla Khan

A stately pleasure-dome decree:

Where Alph, the sacred river, ran

Through caverns measureless to man

   Down to a sunless sea.

So twice five miles of fertile ground

With walls and towers were girdled round;

And there were gardens bright with sinuous rills,

Where blossomed many an incense-bearing tree;

And here were forests ancient as the hills,

Enfolding sunny spots of greenery.

  1. Erinys, you’ve outdone yourself — perfect in every way.

  2. Wow! Just Wow! :D

  3. I loved you’re screenshots :) I read them but I usually forget to comment :P

    • Thanks.
      I have a bad habit of reading stuff at work/whilst commuting and thinking oh, I’ll go back and comment but I never do.

  4. I’m not much of a student of great English literature and poetry, so I always love when you make posts like this! I feel like I’ve learned something new :D

    • Yay. I must admit I love how some themes and images are universal. Need to write the post which is buzzing around in my head about Victorian Literature and Icecrown Citadel.

  5. Brilliant!

    Your screenshots are always superb, and posting it like this just made it all the better :)
