The idea was originally conceived by Vaneeesa Blaylock, as a way for people to share six pictures w/ stories about their favorite virtual world locations.

She proposed that you could choose six spots within the same world, or spread them out throughout several virtual worlds.

I liked the idea but though I would frame mine as a tourist guide, trying to convey why both WoW players and non-players should go there and why it's an interesting place.

I made six categories of travel destinations, each covers only one chosen location:

1. Spectacular Nature
2. City Break
3. Leisure and Spa
4. Horror and Mystery
5. Humanitarian Aid Work
6. History Tour

These are just ideas, you could also do:

- Beach vacation
- Jungle expedition
- Mountain climbing
- Visit a hermit
- Skiing

As an example, I already wrote number one (I used more than one picture, but one is fine):

As for the Gimme Six! idea, you could go with my addition of a tourist guide, or just do one or more significant locations framed in whatever way you prefer.
For example: another author have written a Gimme Six post including pictures from Lord of the Rings Online, Star Wars: The Old Republic and Mass Effect.

And another has included Everquest 2, Dragon Age and Skyrim.

I'd love to see more versions and for someone to tackle some of the themes I'm not going to cover myself. Also, I always enjoy seeing pictures from other worlds, where I'm not native and hearing why they matter to someone.

I hope this inspires someone out there ;)
