Who Are These People?

March 14th

Dear Journal,

I almost feel like what Dawnglory sounds like.  Where the hell are all of these untrained people coming from.  Has that shithead back in Orgrimmar completely lost his mind.  Things were cooling down here in Pandaria and I’ll be blessed if they haven’t sent more new recruits up there that couldn’t pour piss out of a boot with directions on the heel.

Ty and I both are just kind of keeping to ourselves because we’re in a bit of a shocked state of mind.  We see supposed Rangers that have no clue about anything.  Where are they coming from?  I know that there are certain requirements to be met to become a Ranger, however, there seems to be a real open door policy going on right now.   I watched a fellow try to kill a tiger and after missing the beast several times, just politely lead the beast back to where I was standing.  Oh, it was a simple kill for me, however, the fellow just smiled and took off again.  Where are they coming from? He didn’t even stop to skin it, so I did, and watched him scamper off into the forest as if he had an appointment with a lady or his hairdresser.

Oh, I know that a few new Death Knights have shown up and they seem to be surviving okay, however, there is something real strange about them.   They know they are free of the Lich, however, they aren’t real sure why they were sent here either.   The ones that came through Silvermoon and the Regent Lord are at least trained and have some idea as to why they are here in Pandaria, however, they are full of a lot of questions about just basic things.

There must be something going on that we aren’t aware of right now.  Why all the new raw recruits are being sent here is a mystery to me unless they are trying a new training program.  If you live through the training here, then, you move onto the next area?  I don’t know, there are always rumblings of things on the horizon with these politicos and it makes you wonder if they have started letting some Village Idiot lead the parade out of Orgrimmar and the Regent is trying to keep pace by releasing some real green kids to come up here to cover his interests.

Well, Ty and I almost have enough money to buy our farm now and I am looking forward to getting there and settling down.  I should say that I am looking forward to getting there and hide out until all of this passes and someone tells us what in the name of the Light is going on.  Did the Sunwell blow up and these are the people escaping from that?

I haven’t heard a word from my brother in the last few weeks and I am getting more than concerned.  Naturally, I am still getting letters from Faendra with all of her complaints about being in Silvermoon and how the living conditions are there.  Poor little lamb is having to work for her money and she isn’t too happy with that.  Naturally, everything is Fnor’s fault and she is going to let him know how she feels – she says he slapped her the last time he was in town.  Well, knowing my sister and knowing my big brother as well as I do, she did something to set the fireworks off.  She’s no innocent, that’s for certain.  I think I will drop a line to Fnor and put the bee in his bonnet about trying to marry her off so she will leave Dawnglory alone.

Oh, I saw the baby, Mirrin, in Halfhill and she certainly is growing and from what I gathered from Romy and Dawnglory, she’s quite the handful.  There is nothing sacred in their house that this little one isn’t either trying to explore or to shove into her mouth.  She’s adorable and Dawnglory certainly can’t deny being her Father with all of that golden hair.   I guess they are getting married, which came as a real shock to me, I never thought that in a million years that any woman would be able to tie that rascal down – he’s always been one to hit any skirt that sat still long enough.  Now, he’s a Father and soon to be a husband, who’d a thunk it?

I’m sitting here trying not to burst out laughing.   Ty is trying his best to teach Fuzzbutt to be an attack cat.  To see this grown man down on the floor and taunting this kitty to attack anything is just funny.  He even tried to get her to attack a moth that he had caught flying around the lamp.  Well, Fuzzbutt was intrigued at first and then ran over and jumped up on the bed and curled up.  Then, the laugh finally had to come out – Ty wanted to know how hunters get their pets to track and hunt like they do.  Well, hello, my almost brain-dead love, the beasts are much larger and the hunters know how to work with them.

Luckily, Ty and I are alone tonight and the neighbors don’t seem to be inclined to visit here in Halfhill quite as often as the barracks where you had no choice but to tolerate people being around constantly.  I think that Ty and I are just happy that we were able to rent this place for a while until we save up our money for the farm.  When Ty heard that Dawnglory was getting married, he looked at me afterwards as if he was going to say something and then clamped his jaws tight and had this kind questioning look on his face.  I asked him what was wrong and he said “Oh, nothing, I just swallowed a bug and I was wondering what kind it was?”  Oh, likely story that is.

  1. Sounds like Fel is going through the same thing her big brother went through when he was stationed in Pandaria; lack of experienced people and tons of people who don’t know the first thing about fighting . They have every reason to be concerned because the inexperience of the new recruits can get them all killed . Great to hear that she and Ty are doing well.

  2. LOL, well, she’s not real thrilled with the influx of new recruits, so, as she said, she and Ty are going to go into hiding when they finally get their farm. They are just trying to figure out where these new folks are coming from and why they are here in Pandaria.

    ((Actually, it’s to celebrate the fact that Felaran made it to 90 the old fashioned way and is now having to contend with the new 90s that haven’t a clue about what the mechanics are on their new characters – I may have been the worst DK in the history of Azeroth coming up the quest chains, however, I think I have seen a few that might beat me in the last few days. No knocks on the new 90s, I have some of my own.))
