  1. <p>I r miss joo. <img src="<fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/huh.png" alt="o.O" srcset="<fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/huh@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" /></p>

  2. <p>Why did you delete your journal?</p>

  3. Proposed compromise to offer Blizzard: Just give me a queue and an idea of how long. They do it with BG's, they can do it with instances. At least then I can go do something productive instead for that hour or so.
  4. You know, with such a radical change to the "vanilla" stuff, isn't it possible that they're just going to create a brand-new WoW? World of Warcraft 2: The Cataclysm? A full overhaul of the old world seems to me almost like asking for outrage from people who have never experienced old-world stuff (post-Cat new guys), and people who enjoy the old-world stuff so much that they tend to get Loremaster of the continents before they go near Outland? ...But then again, Blizz HAS been doing a lot of crap that results in outrage from the customers, so I guess that's not a valid point. And to those who say that race-class restrictions are unbending: it seems to me that you're arguing that people CAN'T change what they believe. Now that, say, tauren are meeting humans (especially through the Argent Crusade) and seeing that there's something TO this whole Light business, it's possible that tauren could turn to the Light, isn't it? And vice versa for humans and dwarves and whatever else. I'd like to see more flexibility.
  5. To clarify something: I -would-, however, think "hero classes" would be better served if you had to "sacrifice" another character of suitable level. You know, the old "prestige class" kind of thing? There'd just be no going back.
  6. I'd take worgen and goblins over another blasted hero class any old day. And I want to roll the first gnome paladin!!! Taffey Lightseeker FTW! And now, I'm going to attempt a thread hijack and mention that old "third-faction" suspicion that's reawakened in me and is now growing again. Why did Blizz take down the "wall" that prevented people from rolling both factions on the same PvP server? Maybe because splintering off DKs into a third faction would require such a mechanic...?
  7. I guess they've given up on lore and RP at this point. "Well, we've managed to contradict ourselves fifty gazillion ways in our game, so screw it all. Let's just upgrade Ony." 1. You know, almost nobody runs BC instances anymore, yet somehow, we still wound up spending almost an hour trying to get into SH. I smell cattle feces. 2. Locking out even more people who want to instance is a GREAT solution for instance campers! That way, MOST of the instances can be...uh...hmm. 3. A better solution would be, say, a time limit on instances based on full-clear at slightly less than level recommendation. I'm pretty sure people would be only TOO happy to help them measure that. But such ideas require thought, consideration, and logic--none of which are standard for human beings. 4. "The way we can give people more of what they want is by not giving it to them! BRILLIANT!"
  8. Time to think of more positive things. The house is feeling a little empty these days, with Aveia now installed in her new home. She still comes around frequently, to ask for help and advice, and they come around for dinner sometimes, but it's not quite the same. I think I begin to understand what it's like to have a child grow up. Derakor's actually expressing a great deal of interest in cooking. I always figured there was something of the artist in him, but never really appreciated it until he showed how much he loves Aveia. He's still a thick-skulled blockhead, but he's HER thick-skulled blockhead...and what more can you ask? He treats her well. My back is giving me increasing grief. I can't even go from standing to sitting without something popping loudly. We won't be able to travel much longer. I'm actually looking forward to maternity leave. My temporary "house arrest", I think, went a long way toward reconciling my doubts about my utility should our efforts for the world be put on hold. Now I can approach being "just a mom" for a while with a sanguine attitude. The hard part might even be going back to our travels... My evening sickness has found a cure; Terraya had once given me a potion for Melerra's colic, which we wound up not using (thank the Light she recovered quickly!), but I took a swig of it the other night, and I felt much better for it. I must let her know this. Still expanding the cookbook. I wonder how long it will be before these "recipes of necessity"--invented to make weird meats edible, much less palatable--become delicacies and gourmet food? Perhaps when people spend less time up north, and more time at home? I look forward to that. Peace would be good, for a change. Still have to dispense some justice, though. Can't be any peace while the leaders of the other side countenance atrocities...because atrocities happen when you let yourself forget that your enemies are people, too. How can we forget, with Melerra in the house?
  9. <p>Thank you, you two did pretty well too.</p>

  10. Server load's not bad? Try ricocheting off the entrance to ST for 35 minutes on a Tuesday night. Try ricocheting off the entrance to SH for 55 minutes on a Thursday night. Blizzard. Less new content, more access. We're not all running Ulduar yet. ...That's my piece, all I gots ta say.
  11. <p>Hey, I never mentioned this to you before, because it kept slipping my mind.</p>

    <p>Good grief, you're one tough guy. To take on two of us at once and almost win? That's crazy-good.</p>

    <p>I hope you didn't think I was popping Ice Barrier because we were going to attack you, though. I just figured you might actually be as kick-butt as you really are, and didn't want to risk getting chewed up should you be feeling frisky.</p>

    <p>Good fight, man. Good fight.</p>

  12. UPDATES! ((OOC)) Dunamis has now implemented "Instance Nights", on Tuesday and Thursday. We will take up any Old-World or BC instance that our members need, hopefully two in a night if we can manage it. Also, we are beginning patrols of hotly contested areas. Peaceful Horde have nothing to fear from us, as always, but may the hostile beware! We are also forming our Heroics team! We have a wide variety of candidates just within our ranks, and perhaps we can even form two teams! We are looking forward to some shakeup in our RP environment. Some familiar faces will be slipping to the background while fresh ones will take their place, and now more than ever, we will be giving opportunities to our membership to take the lead! Excitement is coming! Finally, we have acquired a satellite guild, using that vault for even more of our crazy overflow. (So this means we now have seven bank tabs and three bank alts to hold all this wealth.) Members above a certain level are encouraged to create alts to access it, although nothing is kept back from them! Fortune is smiling on us; if you can commit to our vision (visit dunamis.guildportal.com), and you want to be a good guy rather than an anti-hero (for a refreshing change of pace), contact any of us, and we'll set up an interview!
  13. Well, Cytiana left us. We rather expected that she would; despite our best efforts to make her feel welcome, it was fairly obvious that she wanted to spend more time with Trigin. She never came around on her leave anymore, anyway--and before she left, she did something that really annoyed me, a very shabby treatment of Drikner, like a servant she treated him while she...but it doesn't do any good to think about it, I suppose. Being upset won't change the past, or make her repent of it, or encourage her to be better. Now I'm hearing rumors that he and that thug group decided to "defend the Alliance" by sneaking into Orgrimmar and ambushing younglings coming through their portal. Ambushing those who haven't a chance? I hear they do this a lot. What kind of dishonorable scum has he fallen in with? He wrote to ask us to visit with him, but I think I don't ever want to see him again. I don't think I could bear the disappointment. From all accounts, he's reverted to exactly what he was when we met him: a drunk, a butcher, a user, a thief and a liar. Is his integrity wholly dependent on the company he keeps? If so, that's not integrity. He's found another mother, one who, rather than expecting the best from him, will cheer him on as he follows her down the path of destruction. The woman's hand leads him away from the Light, just as my dream foretold. I hate being right. Why is the world so full of lying, cheating, self-absorbed beasts masquerading as people? The Dusk Watch will always have the accolades of the world, but they will never see Paradise--because they seek to impose Hell on Azeroth. Issachar reminds me that we do not have our base in Stormwind--and that he does not use his title if he can avoid it--because he does not consider the Alliance to be worthy of our complete dedication. We serve the Light, and this leads us to aid the Alliance much of the time...but we are not of the Alliance. We have aided the Horde in the past as well...There are those whom we would aid again, even against some of the Alliance... We belong to something higher. We belong to the Truth. ((NOTE: Don't take this stuff personally, people. Tir has her definite opinions IC, which sometimes differ from mine. I'm fairly sure that most folks in Dusk Watch are decent people OOC--like Omy or Wechsler, just to name a couple. If you feel yourself personally injured because my character doesn't like yours...maybe you're taking this game too seriously, maybemaybe? *cute smile*))
