WoW Nerd in Deutschland: Part I

OK, so a week or two ago I promised to get more pics from my trip to Germany posted. I may do this in a couple posts. There were quite a few times I could see influences on WoW scenery in the sights.
Who remembers fighting religious zealots in the colonnades and courtyards of the Scarlet Monastery?
That's what I thought of when visiting Römerkastell Saalburg, the restored Roman fort in Bad Homburg vor der Höhe.
And finally our trip through SM concludes at the Cathedral. OK, so it's not as grandiose as the Scarlet Cathedral, but it reminded me of the great porch and doors. It's late, so I'll stop here. More tomorrow.

  1. Great pics, but the WoW comparison throws me in great despair for the future of MMO gaming. xD

  2. Aww! You don't like the comparison? But wait there'll be more!

  3. That first pic reminded me of SM before I even read what you said.

  4. Didn't it though? Actually being there is what inspired me to take the pic; though I suppose any colonnaded courtyard would have a similar vibe.
