After Hours

Through the Dark Portal and into the Burning Crusade

We make it no secret that many TechRepublic staffers and members play The World of Warcraft. So it will come as no surprise that we were quick to snap up copies of the latest expansion pack for that popular MMORPG. The Burning Crusade expansion includes a complete new continent, additions to the old continents, and several new instance dungeons. Intrepid Warlock Elkwinkarma, leader of TechRepublic's Technologia Guild and never one to shy away from an adventure, took some screenshots of what he saw when entering the new continent known as Outland. Let the new adventures begin.

Ah, new Windows desktop wallpaper.
