An old story, reposted here as I’m shaking the mothballs off Ankona and needed an easy way to show people a little bit about the (batshit) things she gets up to. Enjoy, and don’t be too creeped out! It really was a pretty thing, now that she got a good look at it. The polished […]

So, is it just me, or is it really hard to look at Morogrim Tidewalker and not immediately think “Yarr! It’s drivin’ me nuts!” *


* So a pirate saunters into a bar and sits down to get himself some rum.  He’s got a hook on one hand, a wooden leg, and a ships wheel sticking out of the front of his pants.  The bartender looks at him curiously and asks “So, what happened to your hand?”  “Arrr,” he says, “go’ bit off by a shark!”  “Ahh,” said the bartender, “and the wooden leg?” “Arr, lost it in a deck fight – out numbered 4 to 1!” “Impressive,” said the bartender, “And the ship’s wheel in your pants?”

“Arrr!” he said, “It’s drivin’ me nuts!”

Good Morning!

*tinfoil hat on*


What happens when someone you think you knew, maybe someone you’ve raided with, or someone that’s been in your guild awhile, turns out to not be who they say they are? And how do you approach that person afterwards, especially if they’ve been malicious to other guildmates?

Well that sucked.

Raid leader’s sick, sounds awful in vent, had to leave early to try to sleep. Raid assist has 2 year old twins with the flu. Main tank is Raid Assist’s husband. Healer Lead skips out 20 minutes in (school or something), leaving yours truly to coordinate again (no replacement is brought in for him). AFK’s galore, disconnects left and right, can’t seem to get either of our usual mages to stay connected more than 2 minutes, and Al’ar bugged out and reset at 9%. lavaspawn

I know. Al’ar doesn’t have a reset. But at 9% we all dropped combat and he went back to flying around the top of the room. I don’t know either.

Then another raid leader (from another raid) steps in as a sub, and while she’s very nice… she’s not really our raid leader. She’s got a few of her own raiders with her as subs as well, and while she was nothing but courteous and soft spoken, her other raiders proceeded to tell us what to do, what we’re doing wrong, call out for various skills/abilites that they think people should be using RIGHTNOW OMG, including a mage who told our pallytank how to play (and that he’d rather just have hunter pets tanking adds) but couldn’t manage to wait 3 seconds to start DPS on the adds so that the tank could get aggro.

Said mage also said in raid chat “rez me lol!” when I was the only surviving raid member and hadn’t rezzed any of the priests yet (selfrez ftw!) – no sh*t you need a rez, idiot – I can see that you and everyone else around me are corpsed! Also couldn’t figure out what spells he should use to fight Al’ar since he’s fire invulnerable. And he sounded like Beevis in vent.

cannotpass3 hours of wiping on Al’ar. Funny how 3 hours of wiping can feel like you’re making progress and learning a fight, or it can feel like you’re in a room with 24 other incompetent morons beating their heads against a flaming death chicken. (And yes, I include myself in the incompetent moron dept.)

And I get to do it all again Friday/today! Since apparently there’s a group of the raid that want to do MORE WIPING instead of getting a chance to recoup some of our losses and gear up on things we know. This week was supposed to be “wipe on Vashj” week – so much for that.

Very First Impressions

November 14, 2014 – 7:32 am

So I haven’t finished the intro quests yet (the server queues from the reduced server capacity due to the DDOS attacks meant I only got about an hour to play yesterday), but I’m finding that Draenor is pretty cool so …

A Girl and her Dog

The morning of the all hands summon to the Blasted Lands, Aely went for a walk. The late fall air was clear and cool, and leaves crunched under their feet in the less-traveled parts of the streets. She and Roger …

Counting down to Warlords

November 11, 2014 – 3:09 pm

What a long strange trip it’s been. I’ll be the first to admit that, at the beginning, I wasn’t sure Pandaria was going to be for me. I’ve made clear my dislike of daily quests, and that seemed to be …

Squire Benjamin William Sullivan stood in the middle of Light’s Hope Chapel in his underpants.

Actually, it was white linen pants and a shift, but the effect was approximately the same. The little chapel was warm, on the edge of …

Introducing the Newest Anna

So I’m not really in a position where I should be creating alts. This, of course, does nothing to deter me from making alts when the inspiration strikes. I’ve been really enjoying my Alliance hunter, and she’s my raiding main …

Bad things are happening in Stormwind – and beyond.

The Hand of Lothar, they call themselves.

Yva Darrows was their first target.

Tirith and Aely were their second and third.

They have since… expanded their reach and escalated their methods …

The cathedral bells stop ringing overnight, except for chiming the hours. Three bell strikes, and Angoleth padded softly around another corner of the Cathedral District, staying carefully in the shadows. Trained ears picked up Mogget’s soft breathing – nearly inaudible …
