Imagine a desolate landscape
where the moon is always full,
where living trees are always leafless,
and a hawk always sits on a branch just so;
where snowfall gathers in the same places,
and only the bark of a bush nourishes a lone goat.
It’s always the same every time you visit –
a place of dreams.
World of Warcraft is filled with dream-like places. This image from Drustvar at night shows one of them. There’s something eerie about it and yet serene too. Ichabod trees jabbing the sky with the tips of their limbs contrast with the melancholy warmth of an old abandon mining cart. Yet the full moon brightens the snow and offers a moment of reflection for the weary hunter who has stayed too long in the mountains. It is time for this solitary hunter to give up the hunt and go home to bed, perhaps to dream of a desolate landscape where the moon is always full.
