Never A Dull Moment…


June 13th

Dear Journal,

I have such a headache and I wish Zippie would stop yelling at me this morning.  She’s mad because she gave Tymer and I some contracts to complete, which we did, however, we also went to Faire.  We were in the area and we both thought that we deserved some time off and time to have a little bit of fun.

We were smart enough to put everything that we had collected in the bank before going to the Faire because you never know if some rogue is going to pinch your money or other valuables.  Yep, rogues steal from just about anyone they think they can get away with it on.  Been there and done that already and wasn’t in the mood to be without a lot of money again.  I kept some money and so did Tymer so that we could buy our food and drinks and tickets for the rides  – yeah, it’s all about having fun, which we did.

I better explain about Tymer, she’s a cousin that has shown up in Orgrimmar without much of a big hurrah other than the fact that survived all of the stuff before she got there.  She was really surprised to see most of the Pratfalls were already there and well established too, so, naturally, she jumped on board with Morningstar Enterprises.  It’s been fun running around with her because she isn’t a stick in the mud like my sister has turned out to be.

I wasn’t real happy when we were all living in Silvermoon, too many elves, and there wasn’t much I could do for entertainment in the area because I don’t think they really like goblins if the truth were to be known.  Of course the next big city was the Undercity which really wasn’t my cup of tea either because the place always smells bad and it’s full of Forsaken – not what I’d call a real lively bunch no matter how you try to spin-doctor that.  Well, once we got the go ahead from the Boss that we could set up shop in Orgrimmar again, I can’t explain to you how happy I was with that idea.  Whew!  We were going back to a place that I knew and there were many of my old friends that stayed in the city even with all of the Orcs acting weird.

I know that we probably caused quite the hubbub when we left Silvermoon because I don’t think that the dust has settled yet.  Didn’t take us long to make the move back to the old warehouse and get the shop up and running again.  I was really kind of happy when we got that done and tried to settle in with my usual care.  No, Zippie has been running around like someone built a fire under her butt and has the temper to match it these days – I do wish the Boss would come back for a surprise visit to see all of the stuff going on.   I’m sure Zippie will settle down eventually, however, she is making everyone crazy right now.

I don’t think it was a bad idea for Tymer and I to take in the Faire, it’s not like we hadn’t done it before, I guess it just didn’t sit well with Miss “Thinksshesthebossofeverything” and she is just ranting about it to hear the sound of her own voice.  It didn’t cost her any money and it didn’t cost the company any money, so, I don’t know what her problem is other than the fact that we didn’t invite her to come along with us.

Man, we had a blast, literally.  I don’t know how many times I went on the canon ride, especially after we started doing shots  after each attempt.    The deal was that if you didn’t hit the bull’s-eye straight on, you had to take a shot and take another ride.  Well, I think I hit the bull’s-eye a few times and still did the shot so that Tymer didn’t feel bad.   We shouldn’t have done the canon ride before we did that flying through the rings thing.  Oh, my head is still spinning from trying to make the rounds on that one – I’d see what I thought I was ring and fly through only to see that it wasn’t really there and I needed to fly through the one that was still there – yeah, I was seeing double a bit.   Oh, then the racing – my butt still hurts  from falling off my mount because I’d get distracted by things – well, those little zeps hurt when the shoot you in the bum.   I’ll admit that Tymer did a lot better on the rides than I did and her wagering was pretty much spot on, I had to borrow some money from her so I could get something to eat and drink there at the last.

Naturally, we stayed way too late and rather than heading back to Orgrimmar, we spent the night in Thunder Bluff.  I think that is where the problem was – we should have gone back to Orgrimmar with the money and goods from the contracts, however, we didn’t know there was a deadline on the stuff that was so close that it would matter.   Tymer and I neither thought much about it because we were both too drunk to think that we needed to let Zippie know where we were either – it’s not like we’re rookies when we do our jobs and can work circles around these mooks.

We got on the Zep back to Orgrimmar this morning and made it back in plenty of time, we thought, until we saw Zippie pacing at the front of the warehouse.   Instead of the “hiyah, good to see ya” that we were expecting, we got the message that we were being fined for being late with materials from the contract that we took.  Well, I don’t think it was that big of a deal because  it was just a few Kodo hides and we had collected the money that we were owed.  Oh well, I’ll wait until she settles down and find what the real issue is.

I’m still happy that Tymer and I made it to the Faire, now, if only Zippie would shut up – my head is just pounding.

Dooddah Goes To The Faire…


March 4th

Dear Journal,

I know it wasn’t very nice of me to fool my sister, Zippie, however, when she kept asking for someone to go to Orgrimmar to pick up some contracts and check on our old warehouse there, I was all but jumping for joy.  Of course, Uncle Zednick could have done the tasks because he’s already over there, however, Zippie said that she wanted someone that she could trust to get the job done – which kind of left me.

So, off I went to Orgrimmar, filled with excitement about visiting the city and not being supervised by Uncle Zednick.  I could feel free to wander around and visit with some of my old friends while I was there as well as seeing how things have changed since Garrosh left.

One of the things that stayed in the back of my mind was the fact that the Faire was in town and I could spend some time there just having fun after I got my work done.  I could ride the rides, play the games as many times as I wanted too as well as eating all of the food that I wanted to eat the last time and didn’t get the change.

Oh, what a great time I had although I will have to admit that I got kind of sick after drinking so many fizzy drinks that I felt like I was going to explode, hope I didn’t mess up the people too much when I ended up throwing up on the people below when I was flying around with those silly wings and going through the rings.  Maybe they were just Alliance people, if that was the case, I’m sorry but not nearly as sorry as I would have been if they had been Horde.  I had so much and didn’t really notice the time as closely as I should have, I suppose.

There were just so many things to see that I hadn’t had the chance to see before because the others were too busy wanting to go to other places.   I even got my fortune read although I don’t know what she meant about success with my ventures – I’m not venturing anything, I’m just doing my job.

Whoa, I don’t know what they gave that turtle at the ring toss this time because he was sure zipping around like he had rockets under his shell.  It was pretty hard to hit that post on this back.  I tried asking what they gave the turtle to speed him up and the girl there wouldn’t tell me.  I wouldn’t mind giving my crab, Salad, some stuff to speed him up sometimes. I would even share some of the stuff with Panmoshu, my Panderan friend,  to give to her turtle, Soup, to see if he wouldn’t pick up the pace a little bit.  Oh well, may I’ll find out one of these days.

Oh, they added a new race on the beach.  I don’t think I did very well with it because I got lost a couple of days and hit a few things that I shouldn’t and got shot off into the water.  I’m sure that my race time was dead last, however, that’s okay, I still had fun.  I know that I wish they had cleared out some of those big wolves that seemed to wander through the race track area sometimes and scared me half to death – at least my mount kept running and I didn’t get eaten.

It was fun and I don’t regret slipping off to go over there with a few of my buddies from Orgrimmar, however, I know that Zippie will be kind of upset that I took the extra time to have some fun instead of racing back to Silvermoon with the contracts I picked up.  Oh yeah, the warehouse looks great and it looks like the Boss made his decision already because there were some Orcs putting up a new sign over the doors that said “Morningstar Enterprises” on it.  I wonder if we will be moving back here to live, it might be a nice change for us because I will have to admit that it makes me nervous being around all of those elves all of the time.  I hope we can get our little house back or at least have a nice size area upstairs to live again since the Princess has moved on with her life – we hope she has, at least.

Well, time for me to get some sleep and start back to Silvermoon tomorrow so I can turn in this stuff and let Zippie know about the warehouse.   It was sure fun getting away on my own for a while – it’s like Zednick and Zippie don’t trust me to be able to handle things on my own because I’m the youngest – well, I can take care of myself fairly well.

More Business On The Horizon…

February 20th

Dear Journal,

Well, it seems like it is a never ending thing here in Draenor and I know from my own past experiences that this is how wars go or even conflicts.  I hesitate to call this a war as the true creature that I am used too and have a knowledge of because this place, this time , seems as if it is made up of skirmishes with the various factions.  Albeit we know our enemies all too well since we brought some of them with us and the truce that we declared may be applicable to the factions back in Azeroth, however, here that truce is shaky at best and meant to be broken eventually.  One never knows how other members of my own faction may react to different things and I know that the Alliance must be having the same issues that we have been having too with the confusion that seems to overcome our troops upon occasion.

Alternate universe or not, there are times that I truly feel that we shouldn’t be here regardless of our mission to hunt down our ex-Warchief to make sure that he doesn’t spread his insanity  to these people here in this land, he has already interfered with the events in this land and introduced many of the weapons that we had available to us in Azeroth, however, one can only hope that someone will see through his evilness before it’s too late and not recoverable.    Ah well, I will be here until there is no further need of my services although I feel that it is something that someone else could do in my stead should I fall or return to my own time in Azeroth.

Speaking of Azeroth, I know that I have missed the holidays that meant so much to me when I was home and wish that there was some way for me to recover those times lost.  I did my best to get things mailed out for Winter Veil and I’ve done all that I can for the goblin holiday and sent out mail to everyone that was supposed to get things.  I know that I sent Amyn a beautiful fur robe and I hope that she got it in time for the holiday, not only getting it smuggled into Stormwind was very expensive, getting it shipped from Draenor to Azeroth was phenomenally expensive, I was shocked with the cost.   I hope she likes it, the white pelts were hard to come by although I will have to admit that I did have some of my garrison people helping me with it, it was beautiful.

I just go a letter from Zippie and it appears as though there is interest from some of the investors in Orgrimmar to have us reopen our offices there.  I am seriously giving it consideration considering the fact that our new Warchief has given some of the people their property back that was taken by Garrosh’s people.  Zippie said that she has already started negotiations on my behalf to recover the warehouse and offices that we had there and is very pleased to say that it isn’t going to cost nearly as much as she thought it might initially.   I know that some of the employees that we have with Morningstar Enterprises have been wanting to do away with the trips to Silvermoon and Shattrath and wanted to be able to stay within their areas of expertise nearer the Horde capital.  Sometimes that little goblin surprises me and sometimes it’s a good thing – this time it’s a good thing and I’m happy that she went ahead with the negotiations as well.  Now, I need to catch up with what has been going on and make sure that I have received the mail that she mentions from the city council in Orgrimmar.  She knows full well that I will approve or disapprove the negotiations as I see fit because it is my company after all.

Well, I did finally get the letter that she, Zippie,  was talking about and it was buried in the huge stack of mail that I got, discounting the military dispatches that don’t have to rely on civilian mail services.   Well, the deal does look rather interesting and seems a bit in the way of trying to rebuild some of the businesses that left hurriedly and went back to Silvermoon.   The cost doesn’t seem to be that extreme for the initial purchase, however, I am trying to figure out what Orgrimmar will get out of my business if I decide to start another office there – what kind of percentage are they are anticipating on getting from my hard work?  Hmmm,  I think that I am going to make arrangements to get back to Azeroth to look into this further and to take some time to see my family – might as well spend the money and get everything taken care of all at one clip, right?

I know that the leadership in Orgrimmar is well aware that the Blood Elves in the service of the Horde are really still very much tied to our Regent and will follow his orders above and beyond what we might receive from the current Horde leadership.  With all of the things that have happened in Pandaria and here in Kalimdor it is with good reason that we, Blood Elves, are trying to rebuild that trust that was violated by Garrosh and damn near sold us all down the river for a small fee.    I know that my loyalty to the Horde was shaken to the core when Garrosh was on his rampage for her “perfect” Horde that really didn’t seem to have any room left in it for those that were not Orcs.

Who knows how soon I will be able to make arrangements to take a leave and make arrangements for a portal back to Azeroth?.   I know that I have quite a few officers here in the Garrison that should be able to take over in my stead while I am gone.    While I am at it, I may as well see if Dawnglory wants to go with me because I know that he has been pining away for his woman in Pandaria especially since he found out that his going to be a Father for the second time.  I  can sympathize and empathize with him in his longing to be with Romy and his daughter because I have been through the experience myself.

I just asked Pan if he wanted to go home and I swear that he sometimes thinks he is a canine because his reaction was not very feline  – his excitement was rather hilarious to watch.   Well, I guess I had better start putting together the paperwork and getting things lined up so we can go home for a few days.

Family – What Does that Really Mean?


January 6th

Dear Journal,

You know it ain’t easy being a distant cousin to the Prattfalls and sometimes I think they want to keep it as distant as possible, you know.  I think it’s kind of hurtful that they all moved to that Silvermoon place and left me in the slums here in Orgrimmar.  I ain’t got nothing wrong with me that I know of other than being the youngest in the family and I’m not quite up to par with them socially, I guess.

I do get to see Dooddah and Zednick now and then because they seem to come to Orgrimmar with more frequency than I think that Zippie does.  Well, can’t expect her being the one to come to Org that much either considering she’s gotten kind of snooty with her job and stuff.    I was going to mention it to Dooddah the last time she was here but I thought better of it, no sense in losing a friend because she might think I was dissing her sister.  I just wish that I didn’t feel so far away from the family.  Oh yeah, sure, I have my own group of friends here in the Slums, it ain’t exactly the same as family.  I always thought that we were supposed to stick up for one another, you know, family-like.

I don’t think that I’d be in such a foul mood about it except that I didn’t really get anything from Winter’s Veil from them, no card, no invitation to come to dinner, nothing, it was like I wasn’t even here or something.  At least I got some stuff from under the tree and the socks keep my feet warm in these worn out boots that I have, even if they do get wet now and then with the holes in them.  I think it would have been nice if they had acknowledged that I even existed.

Look, I know the family wasn’t all that close back in Kezan, however, my Dad was best friends with Zednick and I would have thought that he might have at least remembered me from that.

I even put an application in for their stupid company to get a job and I still haven’t heard anything back from Zippie.  Guess they don’t need another hunter and I guess they don’t want everyone to know that they have poor relations living in Orgrimmar – it might keep them from making more money.

I know that I promised myself that I wouldn’t get in this funk about not being accepted and all that, however, it’s just not fair.  Even Dooddah took me out hunting with her and she said that I did real good.  I was going to ask her about my application and I didn’t because she may not know what her older sister is doing anymore than I would.   I get the feeling that Dooddah kind of does her own thing and the only reason that she went to Silvermoon was to be with her family.

Well, crap, some mooks are trying to start trouble here in Cross Roads, guess I better get my butt out of here before they start thinking that I look like an easy target or something.  The guards seem to be keeping most of them out of here, however, you’d think that the Alliance would try to find another place to pick on sometime.

Another Time…Another War…


Written in very cursive script denoting the maturity and education of the author

November 18th

Dear Journal,

You know that I should have seen this whole thing coming and failed miserably at it.  After all of the rumors and all of the summoning for meetings  that I have gotten from the Council and the Regent Lord, I still didn’t think that there was anything to worry about or even life changing at this point.  Well, I guess I was bloody well wrong on all counts.  I should have recognized all of the early warning signs and I didn’t pay attention to it because I had my head so buried in the business and some of the things going on in my personal life that I just couldn’t bring myself to the point of facing a reality that is going to be smacking all of us in the face living in Azeroth.

What I thought I had been doing for the past year has been kind of put on the shelf for a while because I have been recalled to “active” duty again and I had no choice but to follow the orders that have been given because of my loyalty oath to not only the Horde and the Regent Lord has come back to haunt me with a reckoning that I was not expecting so soon.

It almost seems like yesterday that we were all landing in Pandaria for the exploration expedition that turned out to be anything but that in the long term.  We still have the majority of our troops in Pandaria trying to get things under control and now, we’re off to another front.   I’m not going to bore myself senseless with all of the details that came to pass with the capture and the confrontation of our insane Warchief.  The trial was truly a mockery of Justice to begin with because some of the people that were testifying against Garrosh were guilty of as many atrocities or worse magnitude than the poor fool could have even thought of on his own.  Trial, what trial?  They needed a scapegoat and the biggest one they could find was Hellscream himself.  The sad thing is that the insane fool has escaped and of course, there are people in hot pursuit after him.  How did this happen?  How many lives were needlessly lost in his capture only to have him escape the justice that was going to be meted out to him?  How many times is history going to repeat itself with these fools?

I’ll admit that I truly never cared for the fellow and that he has put the Horde through a living hell that should have gotten him assassinated years ago.   No, the group in Orgrimmar just went along with what this fool was doing and now we are all going to pay the price.  Yes, we now have a new Warchief sitting on the throne in Orgrimmar and I am not so sure that this is going to be any better than it was before.  This is the first time that I know of that there has been a non-Orc sitting on that throne and I wonder how long that is going to last.  We’ve had to live with the arrogance of the Orcs in the city and now, we’re dealing with the Trolls.  Is this the lesser of two evils?  I’m not sure that I even care at this point however, it has changed a lot of the things that I had planned on doing in my life.

I will maintain my allegiance with the Regent and give the Horde a cursory tolerance as I have in the last few months and hope that I haven’t made a total error in judgment on that point.   Trading one savage as a leader for another one of similar ilk seems to be the worst thing that we could have done at this juncture.  Who knows what is really going on the mind of this Vol’jin anyway ?

After attending several meetings in Orgrimmar over the last few weeks, I’m still perplexed as to what we’re expected to do.  Then, we all get word that there is another kind of uprising going on in the Blasted Lands and some of us were actually send down there to investigate the situation and make a report back to the Regent.  Well, it’s war again.  Yes, all those years ago that our Fathers fought the Legion in the area and pushed back the hostilities in the Outland region, it appears as though we have another denizen to deal with.  A new race of Orcs has decided to make their way back through the portal that we should have close down at the end of that war.  We didn’t close it because there were many things still going on down there and a lot of unfinished business that need to be addressed  – well, to be honest, I think that we all grew to be complacent, myself included.

Shattrath is in for some rough times, I’m afraid.  Here we just put a lot of time of money and energy in getting the business set up there again and now we’re facing another kind of war there.   Something about a magical ability of crossing into other times has me perplexed and scared at the same time.  Haven’t  we learned that dabbling with magic can lead to some rather awful things.  The stories I have heard of demons coming through that portal and our people chasing them back have my hair curling and I’ll admit that even if it did sound like exciting times – do I want to deal with it again as if history is repeating itself?

If I were a younger man and didn’t have the responsibilities that I currently have, I suppose that I would be excited at the prospect of racing through into things headlong without worrying about the future.  This whole thing down there is going to make some major changes to my future, I’m afraid.    Now, I have to recall some of my employees and break the new to them that I will be heading off to take up another command and they will have to run the business without me being here all of the time.  Back to the way that it was when we were in Orgrimmar, I’ll get back to the business when I can and I have time away from my new duties as another Commander.

I still haven’t found Agatha and I would like to talk to her before I leave again.  I am also trying to get in touch with my wife to see if she has been recalled back to her active duty again with the Sentinels.  I know that if Amyn has been called back, that also means that Kal will be recalled as well.  Why do these things have to always happen to disrupt out lives just when we were getting to a point that we might even be able to be a family again?

Damn it!  I can’t just say “no” and walk away, I have to go.

Life Goes On…


October 15th

Dear Journal,

Well, I will have to admit that I am enjoying the girls’ little house in Orgrimmar that they have allowed me to sublet since they have already departed to Pandaria.  I would have enjoyed going with them, however, I had things that kept me back in Kalimdor and the Eastern Kingdoms.  Oh well, I suppose that it is just as well that they went on their own and I might join them at a later time for a visit. At least I didn’t have to bring much furniture with me because they left most of theirs here for me to use other than a decent coffin, which I will get a new one from home.

I think that I can understand why the girls were constantly bickering because their personalities are as different as night and day.  Hazey is a true huntress and has her own way of doing things while Bri, poor Brianca, would much rather sit and sew and make pretty things.  I think that I can understand why Hazey would constantly be fighting with her sister about her sewing things because I have found more than my fair share of pins in the strangest of places, mostly where I might place my posterior.  Tailors are truly an odd lot, however, Brianca will always be very special to me.  At least I do get to see Brianca now and then when she comes back to Orgrimmar to meet with some of her clients for fittings and making deliveries that she won’t trust to the mail.

I suppose that Orgrimmar is okay in its own way, however, I think there are entirely too many Orcs living here. Yes, yes, I do know that it is an Orc city and I do know that with the current regime that it is just something that I will have to tolerate although I am truly not in the city all that often.

Zippie seems to think that I needed a change of scenery or it may be that she wanted me to keep an eye on her Uncle Zednick – not real sure about me being any kind of good influence on the fellow because he is a typical goblin and very headstrong with the things that he does, not to mention, he’s a mage. He’s a strange little fellow that loves his drink a bit too much sometimes and has a temper that flares up sometimes with no apparent reason.   Oh yes, everyone knows about his getting thrown in jail for mooning the Warchief too, however, I really thought it was funny even if the timing was a bit off.  I know that the Commander was none too pleased at having to drop everything that he was doing in order to head back to Orgrimmar to bail the little bugger out, not to mention, there was a hefty sum that had to be paid as well as mending some diplomatic fences that had been damaged. I think that Garrosh should have appreciated seeing a goblin backside as a change of pace from looking at his own kindred, they are truly ugly.

Look, I’m Forsaken and I know what some of us look like, however, we can have a few things added or removed readily enough if we can find the replacement parts from a fresh corpse.  I think I am a pretty handsome fellow since I had my jaw replaced from the metal one that I had to a fresh new jaw that seems to work fairly well although it’s definitely not as strong as my old one.  I just have more to shave when it’s required now than I did before, however, I’m not one to complain about hair that actually still  grows.   At least it doesn’t look like the Alliance King’s chin, now that’s a chin to write stories about.

I think that I will ask the girls about changing the curtains in what we have for a bedroom though, the pink flowers really kind of annoy me and make me wonder if I’ve died and been left in a very feminine mortuary.  I’m sure that Bri made them, however, it does sort of make what I have left as far as masculine sensitivity feel a bit out of place.  Just for the sake of getting a good night’s sleep, I think that I might suggest some darker colors, maybe even black with some red and white lilies just to had some color.  I’ll have to talk to Bri when she comes to town again.   I think I will also ask her to make a couple of new satin pillows for me as well because my old ones are really more than a bit threadbare.

I ran into an old friend of mine here in Orgrimmar the other day.  I was really surprised to see that he had left the Undercity behind to go out adventuring.  Naturally, he was down on his luck and I was able to give him a few copper to hold him over until he could find some work. I actually told him to go to Silvermoon and see Zippie about getting work with Morningstar Enterprises because I will have to admit that the Commander does pay top dollar for the skins and leatherwork that I contract for.   It should be a good thing for him and I did give him some money to make the trip back to Silvermoon City too.

Ah well, I’m sure that I’ll get used to being in Org a bit more after some time passes. Staying based in Org doesn’t necessarily mean that I can’t go home every now and again either.

Traveling Goblin…


September 4th

Dear Journal,

I think that Zippie and I will have a nice long discussion when I get back from this trip she sent me on with the contracts.  I don’t mind the money, that’s a real perk, what I do mind is the way that things just seem to be spread out from one end of Kalimdor to the other.  Go to this place to pick up this ore and then go to another place to pick up some more so that I can fill my engineering contracts.  Luckily for me, travel time is not a problem because I can just make my own portals to go back to wherever I choose.  I suppose I ought to be thankful that she doesn’t have me traipsing to Pandaria to chase down the Boss’s sister for something or other – we still haven’t collected all of the money that she promised to pay back  with interest that she borrowed before she went on her latest trip.

Right now I am spending a lot of my time in Orgrimmar with some of my buddies, which really shouldn’t please Zippie all that much because she knows how we all like to drink and sometimes just taunt the heck out of the mooks that are here in the city.  No, I’m not going to get drunk enough to go moon Garrosh again and get thrown into jail, that was not a pleasant experience and almost got my butt sent to a labor camp.

One of the bonuses for the trip has been me finding a girlfriend of sorts.  Her name Fizzap and she has beautiful blonde hair and is a goblin – can’t see me with any other kind actually.  Anyway, she and I have been spending a lot of company together here in the slums of Orgrimmar, partying and just enjoying things as they come along.  She has a great sense of humor and she really knows how to make money on her own – that’s my kind of woman.  Anyway, I don’t mind the female company because it has been a long time since I have had a girlfriend, well, not since we had to leave Kazan.  The only drawback that I can see that might get people upset with my relationship is the fact that she is a warlock.

Heck, I thought that Fizz was just another mage.  I mean she knows a lot of the same stuff that I do and she can throw her magic around just like I do only hers seems to linger quite a bit longer.  I couldn’t quite put my finger on the taint that seemed to surround things until I actually saw her transform when we were out in the Barrens together.   Could have knocked me over with a feather when that came to pass.  I’ll admit that it was a bit of a turn-off for a while, however, we talked about it and we’ve decided that we’re just not going to tell anyone what she is.  I mean it could get a bit dicey when I decide to take her back to Silvermoon with me.  You know, for all the magic that surrounds Silvermoon and the residual effects of the fel magic that seem to crop up now and again, those folks have little to no tolerance for warlocks.   I’ve seen some things that have happened to warlocks in Silvermoon and I can tell you that none of it has been pleasant or I wouldn’t think it was.

I know that it’s nice to have Fizz along with me too when I’m out traveling, she’s a much better cook than I am and she’s someone that I can talk with. I haven’t told Zippie a thing about me seeing a girl because I know that she and Dooddah both would make a trip to Orgrimmar just to check things out.  I know those two really complain to me about how much I drink and all that, however, I know that they get a bit jealous every now and then when they think I am not paying them enough attention.  They have been like that since they were little girls and they latched onto their Uncle Zednick.

Let’s see, I’ve seen enough of the Stonetalon area to last me for a while and I swear those Thunder Lizards just seem to be drawn to me like a magnet.  I’ve gotten zapped a few times and I will admit that it does get old after a while.  Of course the mining is pretty good there even with the spiders and the Alliance wandering around like they owned the place.  I have seen more humans in the last month and not as many Night Elves as I might have thought I’d see up there.  Okay, I’ve had a few run-ins with the humans out there and it wasn’t because I started it.  I know that they stomp around and think that they are all big, bad and awesome, however, they can’t keep up with a fast moving goblin mage.  I can deal with the Night Elves, however, I do wish the humans would go back to Stormwind and they can take the Worgen with them.

I know that I hate to get into a running battle with a Worgen because they have some speed on them and I can move as fast as I want, even try to sneak away from where they are.  If they are in their human form, which is bad enough, and then they are in their worgen form, well, let’s just say that they can smell me from a mile away.  I’m sending the company a bill for the two robes that I have ruined doing their contract work for them and they had better pay up. No, I didn’t get hurt, just got some cloth torn and a couple of scratches from not blinking away fast enough.

I’ve got some contracts to fill where I have to get the materials from Desolace, Feralas and the Southern Barrens.  I do wish the girl had gotten a bit more organized with stuff because I do want to go back to Silvermoon now and again.  I like hanging out with my buddies where we can talk shop all we want and compare inventions, however, there is just something that makes me feel a bit more comfortable when I am in Silvermoon.  Could be the house that we live in and I have a real bed to sleep in.
