I now have a second noble steed in Warcraft: a purple raptor named Xeen for Vger, my troll shaman persona. My friend with whom I play that character and I pooled our money and purchased our mounts together. Cute. :) I still feel an eerie sense of accomplishment, despite it being a wholly virtual purchase. In fact, I pay Blizzard real money for the privilege of spending hours and hours buying things with fake money.
I played around with a couple different ways to word that. "My friend and I mounted for the first time late tonight" didn't really quite have the ring I was going for.
I've now logged in 403 hours on my two characters. That's unsettling.
