Suppose I should say sumthins about this race.
BRK says to me yesterdays "Ratter! I wanna do a race! With Tauren! But I don't know fashoozle about all that space between Winterspring and Silithus! There's a continent in there, isn't there? Where Taurens come from? What do you call it? I don't know! What can I do? I can't level a Tauren hunter to 40 to lead the race in 4 weeks! I don't even know the quests or the towns or the zones! I've never leveled anything that isn't a dwarf! I need a Hordie to lead things and plan things and make it all work so I can look amazing! But I can't think of any Hordies! What am I going to do??!?!?!!"
"Well, Kitty, I's Horde. I's walked across the Barrens a few times-"
"Yes! That's Right! You're Horde! Why didn't I think of that! It's brilliant! You're the faschnizzle! I can put you in charge, and then I can sit back and roll up a level 1 Tauren and have fun running and take all the glory afterwards! I love it!"
"Well, okay, I think-"
"Make sure you recruit people to man the start and finish line! And mages! We need mages to get everyone to Shattrath after! This is gonna be great! With my name and your amazing virility (have I mentioned I have a man-crush on you?) we'll bring'em in by the hundreds! By the thousands! By the tens of thousands! Huzzah!"
So, that's more or less how it happened. We're gonna be racing from Camp Narache in Mulgore to ... somewhere. Maybe Gadget. maybe Everlook. Maybe the gates of ZG. Haven't decided yet. I'll let ya know when we do.
Is gonna be May 3 (is a Saturday) on the Cenarion Circle server. Starting time is 4pm ST, which is 7:00 in New York, 4:00 in California, 6:00 if you live somewhere civilized, and bugger only knows if you live in Norway or Madagascar. You folks is on yer own.
CC is a RP server, but the horror stories of folks gettin' flagged and banned if they don't look and sound 100% like Legolas is pretty much an exageration. Just don't be a prick in global channels and keep things PG-13 or cleaner and I don't expect no troubles from the thought police. 'Course I been wrong before, but that'll be part of the fun.
I done got me friend Zinzi to vlunteer to be the finish-line flag-waver. I know she's a tasty piece of trollflesh, but be polite, you buggers. I needs her to still like me the next day. For mages to send folks to Shat, well, I'm a little short at the moment. Like, the whole way short. So if you's a Horde mage on CC, or yer brother is, or you know a bugger who knows a bugger what owes you a favor, lemme know. We'll work out some sorta quid-pro-walrus deal to make it worth your time.
So that's what I got at the moment. Is gonna be more later, here or at that other place.
