Sapphire Skills Up

Wednesday, August 27th, 2008

Having spent so much time trying to make the Night Elf faction happy I became fatigued with all that Azeroth had to offer. I had heard many tales from both Faust and Tiger about their adventures, and then young Knifey headed out in to the world to stab anything in sight. By the time I […]

Knifey Enters the Battlegrounds

Monday, August 25th, 2008

Sapphire told me of her recent attempts to push back the Horde in Arathi Basin, picking up a tabard commemorating the Spirit of Competition for her efforts. With her being a protection-based warrior and me a blade-wielding stealthy rogue, I thought I'd be better able to do my bit against the Horde threat in battlegrounds. […]

Rolling for 'play

Thursday, August 21st, 2008

If dealing with a sarcastic prescient isn't bad enough, the elf in our party, Adran, tries to hit on every other elf in the inn. Thankfully, for all our sakes, there are only two of them, but it is still painful. 'You want to hit on her? What are you going to say?' 'Shall I […]

Prescience is not Intelligence

Thursday, August 21st, 2008

With our mission to map an Old Keep for a gentleman scholar back in a distant town, reach the nearest town, that of Winterhaven. After settling in we ask the locals, of which there are around 900 packed in to a couple of dozen houses apparently, about any information that may have about the Old […]

Sapphire Becomes Exalted With Darnassus

Tuesday, August 19th, 2008

Although there is something regal about riding atop an elephant, it didn't appeal to me, particularly when compared to a ram or big cat. With my friend Knifey getting himself a pony and a ram, I decided to go for the big cat, which meant raising my reputation with Darnassus until I was exalted. This […]

Ring the Changes

Thursday, August 14th, 2008

'You run your longsword through him and he drops to the ground, dead.' 'Good. That means I can move and not provoke an opportunity attack.' 'Not from the dead kobold, you're right.' 'I meant the other one, the one that's still alive.' 'But you also don't provoke from the dead one.' 'Which I believe is […]

Fourth Edition Introduction

Thursday, August 14th, 2008

Hired by a doddery academic to map out an old abandoned keep near the town of Winterhaven, I join a disparate band of adventurers. As we start our journey the introductions are made. 'What's your name?' 'Iago.' 'That's nice, Argo. Me Jane. HA HA HA!' 'No, Iago. *sigh* Do you have no culture?' For some […]

Saving the World

Tuesday, August 12th, 2008

The party heroically defeated the monster and saved the world! Had we not succeeded I wondered previously if not saving the world meant we could no longer play in the Iron Heroes setting. After all, it would have been destroyed, there would be nowhere to adventure. It was pointed out that this is a ludicrous […]

The Joy of Fishing

Monday, August 4th, 2008

Sapphire, my warrior with a tail, is in Stranglethorn Vale taking care of the pirate population when I spy some floating wreckage nearby. Fishing has never been a profession I've taken too much interest in, being rather too passive and not offering much direct reward. With each new character and the early fishing quests I […]
