So – I got and installed The Wrath of the Lich King.

I must say, so far, it’s pretty freaking cool.  Meet Kurmudgeon:

Kurmudgeon is a level 55 Death Knight (they start at level 55).  His story is a simple one in that he doesn’t really have one.  I needed an alt and I’d used him a very long time ago so he was resurrected as a Death Knight.  We’ll see how it goes.  🙂
