Yes, that’s Akromah, in ghost form. Because she’s dead. Dead, why? Dead because I kept turning away from my monitor during my daily trip to Quel’Danas to watch the DNC.

I’m an election dork. I simultaneously love and hate every candidate by Election Day and I lap up the completely staged conventions and debates like a kitten laps up milk. I’m not a (D) and I’m not an (R) so I can enjoy/heckle both parties simultaneously.

But not only did I die, I went so long without even paying attention to the game that I was automatically logged out. And when that happens, you’re greeted on your next login by the spectre of death.
