Is Don Ratshag's Famous Hat Now!

So there I is outside of Gadget (don't ask why- is a long story, and she done signed the forms alreadies), when this sorry-arsed old bugger comes up and starts in on some woe-is-me story. Apparentlies a buncha years ago he were riding through the Hillsbrad Foothills all by hisself (is before the place got all plaguified and then I had ta go slaughter all them farmers), and he got jumped by a buncha glubbfumpers what stole his hat. Now, he's lookin' fer some buggers ta go back in time through them caverns and get it back. Says he'll give'em some nice hats if they does. So what the hey. I likes hats.

Well, me and Zinzi (what gives good resurrection) and Throttle with goggles and Aelion the cheeky blood elf never did see no gang of hat stealin' glubbfumpers, but we did find a dude with one of them cool hats ridin' down the road by hisself. We figured a cool hat's a cool hat, so we knocked him down and took it, fer to give the old guy back in modern times. Oh, and in his bags we found another one, with a label what said "famous". I kept that one fer meself. Came with a dingo and everythings.

Anywho, we took the hat to the old dude, who said that yes, this were indeed his hat, thankee so much. And he done gave us these here Hasilacisanilac hats in trade.
Ain't bad lookin'. Gonna haveta go bother me kid brother ta stitch up some matching pants and shirt, I think.

Odd Groups Go Ta The Left, Even Groups Go Ta The Right

Was way back, nearly two years ago, what I stood outside Onyxia's Lair and shouted me defiance at her. Was gonna be a long road fer ta gets there, but I knew I'd make it someday.

Last night, it finally happened. I led seven other members of The Purge inta that cave. And there she were, old Ony, larger than life and twice as nasty. She's been the terror of Kalimdor since before we orcs done got here, but tonight, that were all gonna end.

She were a tough old gall, I gives her that. Took us mebbe ten minutes fer ta wears her down, get her on the ground, and then finish her off. But in the end, she were no match fer me and me crew.
It were achievement spam and mostly useless epics galore. I did get me some smithing plans fer pally shoulders ('cause ya  never knows), and we let Tarsius the Younger take her head to Orgrimmar fer ta present it ta the Warchief.

Told ya we was comin' for ya, bitch.

Okay, this happened a few days ago, but I didn't talk about it then 'cause I's talking about it now.

Fim and Bre were both outta town and weren't Twisting They's Nethers, so Mystic Nibbles went all piratey and hijacked the show. Since she's just a little gnome, she done brought me along fer some muscle. I's good at that.

Anywho, the show be available fer downloading over here.

Vyprania's Story: Outland

Ratshag suggested that I spend some time in Outland, learning how to be an independent mercenary, instead of a spearhead with the weight of Acherus behind me. I wasn't sure about that at first; Outland seemed like a dead, forgotten place. But I found there was still work to do there. Small bands of orcs and demons still wandered Hellfire Peninsula, survivors of when the great guilds smashed the Hellfire Citadel and the Throne of Kil'Jaeden. In Nagrand, tribes of ogres still battled each other and the Kurenai. And a strange dwarf was hiring people to slaughter wild animals. I avoided becoming entangled in the never-ending squabbles between the Aldor and the Scryers; with the Shattered Sun Offensive over, those two factions were back to sniping at each other, fighting over the crumbs left behind by the raiding guilds. I thought they were pathetic.

Ratshag was right. Here, in this alien wasteland, I have learned to support myself, to operate independently, to choose my own path. The screams in my head have been fairly quiet, satisfied by the death and carnage I have created for, as Ratshag would put it, "thems what pay me."

I have replaced almost all of my gear here in Outland. From reading Kinnavieve's posts (yes, I have been checking up on her) I know she hated how this plate armor looks, how revealing it is. Obviously, it is immature. But I feel very comfortable, not wearing the signature saronite armor that we death knights all had at Light's Hope. Now, unless people look at my eyes, they cannot immediately recognize me as a death knight, and hurl insults or hide their children. And in this outfit, my eyes are the last thing most people look at. It will be good, however, when I go to Northrend in another season, that I am not bothered by cold weather, the way the living are.

Is Where Danger Mouse Goes To Desolace

Ratterss hates this place - calls it a bunghole. But I think it looks pretty - all nice and dead. And full of juicy centaurs for me to consssume, after I kill them. I guess thingss look different, when you don't have eyes...

Is Where Kinnavieve Gets Help From Some Friends

Hello gentle readers. And Bellbell.

I haven't been raiding for a while, due to the team's RL avatar being kinda borked, and Ratters hogging the computer when he isn't. I've been working on paying for epic flying training, earning some reputation here and there, but nothing special.

Last night I ran into Shianti, one of our guild's healers, and she said "Wow, your pants suck - let's see if we can get you some better ones in VH." She can be kinda, well, frickin' blunt. But she used that bluntness to wrangle up some dps and off we went!
Well, we weren't able to get the tanking pants to drop (stupid stinky dragon), but it was a productive evening anyway!
So thanks Kashi, Celli, and Jerk for killing things, and especially thanks to Shianti, for making it happen. Maybe we'll get to try again in a week or so.

Tag! Tag! Tag! Tag! All Right, Alreadies!

So, here's the deal. I done been awarded this here piece of scrap by the lovely Lady Jess, the equally lovely Siha, and the truly scrumptious Matticus, and I's pretty sure I saw me name at least one other time, but now I cain't remember where. Anywho I's sure it were from someone lovely.

When accepting this auspicious award, you must write a post bragging about it, including the name of the misguided soul who thinks you deserve such acclaim, and link back to the said person so everyone knows she/he is real.
Choose a minimum of seven (7) blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. Or improvise by including bloggers who have no idea who you are because you don’t have seven friends. Show the seven random victims’ names and links and leave a harassing comment informing them that they were prized with Honest Weblog. Well, there’s no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon.
List at least ten (10) honest things about yourself. Then pass it on!

The bragging about the award part:
It is a damn fine picture of a piece of sheet metal, with both words and a picture printed on it. How could anyone not be pleased, honored, and thrilled?
