When I first saw this on a character who hadn’t done the Hero of the Mag’har thing, I was like, “Bro, you’re just as terrified, else you would not be sniffing me. You probably just smell coffee and ore-dust.”
Then when I did it on a character who HAD?
Garrosh says this—
“Do not think that I have forgotten what you did for my people in Nagrand, <name>. Hellscream never forgets.
For that I am indebted to you and it is why I give you this chance now: run. Leave this place and never look back.
Return to your home and say a prayer for the dying.”
That line ended up turning into a major basis for how I characterize the big dork-butt in my writing :B Like, yeah I know it’s a one-off line but holy schlaMOLY the character-development potential is epic as heck forever.
I wanted to draw something for myself today, and also try out my new Copic markers (never used ‘em before). They don’t scan quite as dark as the ink I use for From Draenor With Love (alas) but they were very nice to work with!
I haven’t decided whether I will colour or do anything else to this yet. Anyway, this is Vidyala and Vosskah. I don’t know if I’ve ever drawn them together, so I just wanted to do a sweet father/daughter drawing, which in their case means he is trying to give her a noogie.
They spent so much time apart that at first they were tentative with each other but over the years they’ve realized they have many similarities. They are both very physical and so they roughhouse and Millya doesn’t understand it at all so she just rolls her eyes. You’d think it would bug Voss that his daughter is a Vindicator but it doesn’t, he’s so proud of her.

Bolvar, dude, you really gotta start hitting the gym.
The eerie skittering of the local geists going about their business and making deliveries across the vault was still so unsettling. Something about the way their clawed frozen feet clattered against the cold slate, something about the high echoes in the cavernous ceiling. Something about the…
Ahhhh I finally got the chance to read this, so good! Totally explains why these two unlikely, dissimilar friends/partners would end up as an arena team. :D Great job Narci!
Slow-mo Beau-mo is so elegant and graceful. Shelties are such coordinated creatures.
Twitch Plays Pokemon is the wildest thing I have ever watched and I frankly can’t stop.
If you’ve been living under a rock (or you’re just not up on Pokemon news, that could be a thing, in which case, your life must be so very sad), there’s a Twitch chat room with far too many people in it undergoing what the creator refers to as a “social experiment.” Each person in the chat submits a command they want the player to do and, with a 20-30 second delay, the Pokemon Trainer does the command.
It’s made it the most frustrating game of Pokemon ever played but also the best. Because they’ve been playing for five days straight, have four badges, and have somehow maneuvered two cave mazes.
Due to the delay and trolls, we have often found our poor trainer opening his menu, checking his bag, and looking to the Helix Fossil he acquired in Mount Moon.
Which of course, does nothing.
But in the middle of a Pokemon battle, better open my bag and check on the Helix Fossil.
About to cut down a tree. Better open my bag and check on the Helix Fossil.
I’m trying to enter this cave. Gosh, I need to make sure I haven’t dropped my Helix Fossil.
The people in the chat room have come to the conclusion that the Helix Fossil is an artifact of the Pokemon Trainer’s religion and that his ultimate goal is to resurrect Omanyte from the fossil.
Oh yes, they’ve brought religion into the game.
Even to the point where, when players in the chat were discussing that they needed a Pokemon to learn Surf, some had said “Let’s just wait until we get a Lapras later in the game. That just gets handed to us and will be much easier to do and we won’t run the risk of needing to deposit anybody in the PC and accidentally releasing anybody.” (We’ve already accidentally released our starter, so our current strongest Pokemon is a Pidgeot we call Based Pidgeot or Bird Jesus)
Others said “Let’s pick up the Eevee from Celadon Town! We’ll go to the Department Store, buy a Water Stone, and get a Vaporeon! It will be much better.”
We wasted all of our money on 8 Poke Dolls and an accidentally purchased Fire Stone.
Flareon has been called a heretic in this game.
Flareon is literally Satan to these players.
You weren’t there for the Celadon Department Store, okay. We got lost in there for one whole day and I watched it happen. It was awful. The work we put into getting this dumbass Flareon was awful.
So, we had to deposit Flareon in the PC because he was utterly useless. Which was when we accidentally released our Charmeleon.
The players determined this was simply what the Helix Fossil wanted and we had to trust in our Bird Jesus and never follow false gods again. Just let Lapras happen. Trust in the Helix Fossil.
Now, the players had been stuck in Rocket Hideout on those damn moving arrows for exactly two days. So the creator instated a chatroom based vote where you could decide on anarchy—the way we had been playing the whole time with individual players participating in a free-for-all—or democracy.
If 75% of the players had agreed on one form of governing, that was the system we were currently using in chat.
Democracy involves each player submitting a command and the game tallying to see which action is voted for most and popular vote wins.
This game has user-inserted religion and now creator inserted government.
The players spend so much time arguing over which form of government to use that we often get nowhere.
This is the weirdest virtual reality based Japanese RPG I have ever seen.
I have no idea what kind of social experiment the person who created this chat room is trying to do—they wish to remain anonymous—but this is positively delicious mayhem and I may never see this many people excited about a game made in 1996 again.
The Fabstorm cannot be contained.
