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 …

It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad Monday
comment 4 Written by on August 31, 2009 – 9:32 am

I’m fighting with the “I have too much I want to do and not enough time to do it” problem with WoW lately.  I’ve got four – maybe even FIVE – characters I’m in the process of leveling, and I can’t seem to stick with one for any extended amount of time.

Add to that the fact that I’m somehow busier without a job than I was when I was writing part-time so I’m not in game as much… and I end up a somewhat frustrated Anna!

Here’s what’s been going on though:

  • Annie Mae is level 55, completely done with Un’Goro, and will be finishing up Burning Steppes (only 2 quests now, no more Onyxia questline :( ) before heading up to Felwood –> Winterspring (hooray Timbermaw Rep) and the Plaguelands.  I’m going to try to hit 59, if not 60 in the old world before heading to Outland, since that speeds things along nicely once I get there.
  • Anaje is working her way through the Southern Barrens.  I may detour back to do some starting zones for rep/loremaster reasons, but for now she’s chugging along nicely.
  • Anaelle is still 75, Angoleth is still juuuuust shy of 71, and Annylais is still 63.  I guess that means I’ve got my current alts picked out!
  • Thanks to some happy coincidences, Annie Mae has a story in progress, as well as a drawing commission that will probably be up in the next month or so.  Woo!
  • I’m <thisclose> to having my new Argent Crusade tabard – at which point I get to start working towards the Pony Up achievement.
  • Aely had good fun at the Rose Ball on Friday, though the idea of “dressing up” finally wigged her out to the point that she just wore her shiny purple dress armor instead of an actual, you know, /dress/.  She did wear her hair down though!
  • It’s really weird to log into a character that’s had a major hairstyle change!
  • I’m off to get my house ready to be invaded by crazy people with sewing machines tonight.  I’m feeding them lasagna.  I’m not sure if that’s the appropriate food for crazy people with sewing machines, but I figure it’ll do.
Heroic Deadmines?

Gryphonheart, over at The Lion Guard, has a hilarious post up on how to make Heroic Deadmines more heroic.

Go read!

Some weeks you’re the pigeon…

Other weeks, you’re the statue.

TRI logged in last night, ready to pwn some nubs in the Coliseum and face down some Twin Valkyr.

Everyone groups up, we take out Northrend Beasts… and anyone in the raid living in Washington or Oregon crashes.  And can’t get back online.  7 people down, including three healers and two raid officers.

Wait 20 minutes?  Still no dice.

In a raid that only works 2 nights a week, for a total of 7 hours, getting your night ruined by a login server crash is a major setback.  We won’t see the new boss in ToC this week – and not for anything we can have done about it.

So!  In an attempt to cheer myself up about it, I’m accepting suggestions for tonight’s server-wide RP event, the 6th (ish) Annual Rose Ball!

Should I bring Aely?  Or Annie Mae?  And what should she wear?

Wallpapers Wanted
comment 21 Written by on August 27, 2009 – 8:36 am

In light of the upcoming changes to the Old World, I’m setting out to finish up the Wallpaper project.  You can see what I’ve done so far here.

If anyone has suggestions of particularly picturesque places for me to use, please let me know.  I’d like this to be a good tour of all the places that make Kalimdor, Eastern Kingdoms, Outland, and Northrend particularly beautiful, so I’m happy to head out to any spot on any continent!

Leave your suggestions or places you’d like to see in the comments, and I’ll post again when I upload another batch!

Patrol

November 13, 2013 – 9:59 am

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 …

Riders in Lordaeron – Memory

November 7, 2013 – 1:33 pm

(Written by Jolly, Tarquin, and Annalea)

The highlands of Lordaeron were not for the faint of heart; be it the putrescence of the Scourge’s long-lingering remnant, or the rock-strewn hills and valleys that made farmers out of only the most …

September 13, 2013 – 7:11 pm

(With Tarquin and Annalea)

Once more, four people made their way through the thickets and hills of Lordaeron, this time in the crisp chill of late morning, seeking after the Rider. Aelflaed had snatched what sleep she could while Chryste …

She hadn’t wanted to leave Jolly – not so soon after finding him again – but once away, it took about five minutes for Aely to figure out she had a problem.

That problem had just announced that …

Riders of Lordaeron: Arrangements

September 9, 2013 – 10:05 am

It was an uneasy goodbye for him, but it was agreed by both he and Aely that a stroll back to Hearthglen would not be very easy to explain, nor would the explanation needed for the three Argent soldiers once …
