Yiff the Worgen
If you were paying attention to BlizzCon this weekend you probably heard that Blizzard will introduce two new playable races when they release the expansion World of Warcraft: Ca term of affection, excitement and (sometimes) sexuality frequently used by Furries.. Attendees had the chance to get their hands on both races. I did too and will be writing in more detail about them soon. While checking out the Worgen I couldn't help but have a bit of fun with the new Alliance race. I named my character Yiff --
Sure, the Worgen are pretty much werewolves -- a man/beast hybrid imagined long before the first furry donned a bear costume. But just have a look at the concept art for the female Worgen that Blizzard showed us this weekend. Maybe I'm hypersensitive to all things furry, but that pic set off a zillion different alarms with my internal Fur-dar. It was fresh from seeing that sexy lady wolf that I rolled my first Worgen character. The name "Yiff" was the first thing that came to mind. And based on the reaction I got from other players, I'm sure I won't be the last to point out the Worgen/Furry connection.
The Alliance gets a bad enough rap as it is. And I know some huge brown sack is going to try to make this a Horde-is-better thing. But man, if you thought the role-play in Goldshire was weird, just wait until the Cataclysm rips thought the Eastern continent.
