Your character has just received word that there’s a terrible storm coming directly at where he or she is currently living (on Azeroth – as far as I can tell, Outland is a different beast when it comes to weather). This storm is expected to do a lot of damage, and potentially be deadly to the unprepared. In that light, five questions about his or her response…
1 – Would your character leave or stay? Why or why not?
2 – Where would they go (if they were leaving), or take shelter (if they were staying)?
3 – How would they get there?
4 – If given 2 hours to pack, what would they bring with them of their current posessions?
5 – What would they leave behind?
And, as always, since it’s only fair to answer the questions I’m asking!
1 – Annorah would get the hell out. She knows the fury of the elements and how fickle Wind can be, and has no desire to be there if she’s got any chance to leave. (Aelflaed, on the other hand, would stay. She’d say it was so she could be useful, but part of her just enjoys being daredevilish and living on the edge, and she’d want to see what it was like)
2 – Probably anywhere she could get to in a reasonable time. Particularly if it is away from the rest of the people leaving. She likes quiet.
3 – Zuu, her Elekk. Or possibly Ghost Wolf Form, if the trip wasn’t Elekk friendly and she had the time. That’s her preferred way to travel.
4 – Her four totems, her engineering tools, the small black scrying stones she uses from time to time (a gift from Nobundo), her firefly Gizmo, her goggles, and at least one comfortable, soft outfit. Mostly what she usually carries with her at any given time.
5 – Annorah doesn’t have much in the way of accumulated posessions, so that’s not as much of an issue for her. Annalira would have a much more difficult time deciding between what got left and what she brought along.
It’s only fair for Matt to answer too!
1 – Mallet is a retired frontline Priest lecturing at the Ironforge Academy of the Arcane Arts – Restorative Division. He’s a stubborn old Dwarf and would never leave. It also helps that he lives under a mountain. The great gates of Ironforge have withstood the battering from Horde invasions. A little wind is nothing compared to 3 full sized Horde raiding regiments!
2 – The bar. But if he was forced to evacuate, he’d head down to Stormwind and take a position there at the Uther Lightbringer University teaching the younger Monks and Clerics. He prefers the hustle and bustle of urban life.
3 – Catch the first available Gryphon. Mallet always flies first class. After that, he’d travel around on his trusty Suburban Bear with offroading capabilities and front end horns capable of impaling anything in it’s path. Although with the high price of salmon, he may need to switch to a more environmentally sound and friendly Wintersaber. It’s a little sleeker and slightly faster with optional spoilers and fog piercing eyebeams. Perfect for those misty days.
4 – His staff. The Apostle of Argus as served him faithfully. In a time where it’s powers are no longer needed as extensively, it operates as a walking stick. Mallet is an old Dwarf after all. The staff helps support him while he moves. Other possessions include his pet frog, Mojo and his full Absolution dress robes.
5 – Not much. Mallet’s wealth is stored in various off short vaults (the Steamweedle Cartel and Mallet have an "understanding").
