Obviously your main character doesn't quite understand the true sinister nature of gnomes. Smiley: laugh



I have to be honest. There's nothing in the world quite like sitting at work at 1am, with an eyepatch on your eye(long story) and a piece of kleenex shoved up your nose(I have a cold and managed to make my nose bleed) reading about lesbians while sipping chamomile tea.

Lulz. I got so excited when I noticed that someone had posted something new that I forgot why I clicked into this thread in the first place. I finally got around to posting my latest chapter tonight.

Chapter 7: She Who Fights Monsters

For those of you who haven't read any of the previous ones.

I'm not sure if it's my absolute favorite quest, but I recently did the Klaven's Tower quest line for the Rogue class. At first I couldn't figure out what to do. Usually I'd go to here or thottbot if I get stuck, but for whatever reason I just popped open the quest log and it told me to read the diary.

Well, I actually read the thing and it was fairly interesting. It said something about the artifact having some sort of effect on the nearby guards. That's when it struck me. I remembered seeing a funny looking guard patrolling outside. I was going to test out my ambush ability to finally see how that worked out. Then I noticed another shiny little button on my stealth bar that I'd forgotten about. Poof! Got the key without even having to kill the guy. This must be what opens that chest inside!

So I go back up to the top of the tower, clearing people as I go. To my dismay, I still cannot open the chest. It seems the key is to something else. If only I had a Rogue to open this... DOH! I am a rogue. This is a rogue quest. I need to use my rogue skills -- duh! Unfortunately my Lockpicking skill was 0. I remembered I had a quest in Lakeshire that had something to do with picking a lock so I went there and completed that. Conveniently there were practice chests that allowed me to open chests until level 75.

Normally I'd be peeved at having to hearth, go all the way to Lakeshire to do a quest, and then back to Westfall to get the item. For some reason though, I had a blast doing these rogue quests. There's one more part to the chain to go and I look forward to when when I get some time not raiding/crafting. I think the reason I've taken a liking to these quests are that you have to use skills and tactics you don't usually get to play with. How often do you get to sneak up behind someone to pickpocket them or use your lockpicking skills for a quest. I'm hoping that even after the Rogue class quests, these abilities will open new possibilities for me. For example, if the quest objective is to kill a guy to steal his item, maybe instead I could pickpocket it. I'm no pacifist, so I'll be sure to kill him after I pickpocket the item. :)

Cortello's Riddle!

Going across the world and finding specific locations just by reading a vague text is quite tricky and quite refreshing!

Haven't completed it yet so will have to take a raincheck on the story until I have.

It saddens me that we've gone so long without a new post here. Will give rateups for new things to read. Smiley: nod


I've almost finished the next chapter of my horrible fanfiction, so I'll post that when I'm done. And I'd like to remind everyone to start thinking about your Halloween story this year. I'll probably hold another contest and it'll likely be similar to the one from this year, so if you're interested in entering, I'd definitely think ahead.

Riding to the front lines of battle at the Dark Portal, where great demons and mortals clash, Grashlok noticed out of the corner of his eye an Orc. The Orc was a little weary, it seemed, as he was sitting down. He was in full battle garb, mace in hand. Grashlok knew he must ride further, but something about this Orc seemed to call him.

It was too great to pass up Grashlok decided. Grashlok dismounted off his wolf and walked to the Orc. As he came to the Orc he noticed a peculiar aura about the Orc, but thought nothing of it. Walking up to the Orc Grashlok stuck out his hand and said calmly, "Come, old one, it is time to get up." The Orc put out his hand for Grashlok to grab, but, as Grashlok went to grab for it to help the Orc up, Grashlok's hand went straight through the Orc's hand. Grashlok gasped, backed up and drew his daggers.

"Calm down," the Orc said while standing, "I am your friend. And I'm in need."

Grashlok did not sheath his weapons. "You're nothing but an apparition. Who are you?"

"I'm Trebor, young one. My souls knows no rest, which is why I wander here."

"What do you need from me?"

"I was the leader in a raid into the Blasted Lands. Nineteen of my men fell in battle. Had it not been for an ambush by Murlocs, orders would have gotten to me to tell me not to venture into these ill-begotten lands. But it is all in the past now. I want you to help free my men from the clutches of the demons. I have escaped the demons' grasps, but my soul knows no rest. All nineteen of them still reside in the Blasted Lands."

Grashlok took an easier stance, but still weary.

"And what of the demons after I help your men?"

"Orc, if you can get there, then I have plans to destroy the demons that bind my men and help eradicate the Blasted Lands from the evil that resides there."

"Trebor, I was just riding into the Blasted Lands to fight against the demons coming from the Dark Portal. I will see what I can do to free your men and bring you peace."


I'm attempting to do a mock-up of the Fallen Hero of the Horde quest line. I'm not that great at writing in third person, but it's doing alright I suppose. I'll have fun writing this I think.

You know, at this point, I'm just happy to see new stories, so don't worry that it's more character than quest focused. I'll have to check it out after I eat(about a minute til pizza's done).

Edit: that's pretty awesome. Can't wait to see how it continues.

For the two people actually reading my bad fanfiction, I've posted up my almost completed 8th chapter of The Lore of Poldaran. Again, I must stress that it's not done, but since I moved a copy of it over here, I thought I'd share that with ya.

Edit: If you want to read an older one, here's the link to the table of contents.

Been doin' some writing and questing on various characters, here's a story I wrote for a quest that I've had fun with.

The quest line in the Mightstone Quarry was my inspiration for this one.

I know I can't be the only one who hates it when a guy advertises that he's an ungilded rouge.

If he's not willing to put the effort into making himself all shiny, why should anyone else bother?

Added a new story. One May Challenge. It's the story I entered into the Blizz Writing Contest.


Since you're seeing it here, obviously I didn't win. Smiley: frown

New short stuff for Poldaran. Well, not new, but posted in another thread where it might not have been seen before.

-----------------------

The morning sunlight streamed through the windows of Velox's home. The sound of exotica fauna trickled in as well, encouraging him to get his day started. Though his aging bones creaked and ground as he rose - souvenirs from numerous campaigns against the Burning Legion and the Scourge - he knew that the Stranglethorn warmth would revive his spirits quickly.

Half an hour later, he stepped off his porch and admired the lush jungle around him. His home sat mere yards from the Nazferiti River, a haven for many of the forms of wildlife that lived in the region. The larger predators left him largely alone, as they considered him neither food nor threat. As he sat on the edge of the river, clad in his favorite overalls and a weather-beaten hat that seemed to bring him luck, he cast into the river with his favorite fishing pole. Velox could not imagine a more perfect day.

He had dozed off slightly when a rustle on the breeze roused him to full alert. Three of the local Venture Company crew were walking towards his position along the beach, likely scavaging for junk that frequently floated on the river. Velox simply grinned and went back towards his fishing. The goblins were no threat to him and the smarter ones steered clear of him. One of the goblins paused and nudged one of the others, pointing in Velox's direction. The two of them sauntered up to Velox, while the third seemed to have a little more sense and walked cautiously around the grizzled man to continue on his way down the beach.

"Hey, old man," he mumbled. "Nice fishing pole. Think we could borrow it?"

"Sorry boys," Velox replied. "I'm kind of partial to this one."

The goblin quickly produced a dagger. His friend pulled one as well.

"We weren't asking, old man."

Velox smiled. He hadn't had any action in a while, and while he enjoyed his retirement, he did miss the thrill of battle. The goblins were about to make his day.

"Okay, pal," Velox said. "Here you go."

Summoning the undead strength that still coursed through his veins, Velox brought the fishing pole down on the goblin's neck in a vicious blood strike. The bone fishing pole crumpled the goblin almost instantly. Velox spun to face the other goblin, who stood frozen with fear. Velox pointed the makeshift weapon towards the second goblin, who noted that the air suddenly felt strangely cold for such a hot day in the jungle.

"You have two choices," Velox said, his voice oddly reverberating. "Take your friend and leave, or join him on a facedown float down the river."

The goblin moved to quickly drag his friend back the way the came, towards the large Venture Company installation near the lake. His eyes never left Velox, and his face remained frozen with panic that the surprisingly strong man would change his mind and kill him with a single strike. He now had no doubt that he had crossed a death knight and was somehow being allowed to live.

Velox waited until the goblin and his near-dead burden were out of sight before returning to his fishing. He sipped the lager Captain Rumsey had shared with him and allowed himself a quiet smile. His joints no longer ached, the sun felt great, and the fish were biting. Maybe later he would ride down to Booty Bay and share a fishing tale with Old Man Heming and sell some of the junk he found in trunks, or cook up the catch of the day.

It was going to be another great day in the Vale.

Since no one's adding their quest stories lately, I think I'll add an excerpt from the story I'm currently working on in hopes of motivating you folks to start thinking about writing some more.

With no further ado, I bring you: an angry cake elemental.

Quote:
Her composure returned by the discovery, Nagisa hurried into the kitchen, only to find the kitchen covered in flour and both her mother and Diane hiding behind a counter. "Quick! Hide!" Lisa said to her daughter.

"What on earth is going on?" Nagisa asked. No sooner had she spoken than a glob of something flew at her from across the kitchen. She dodged quickly and the projectile splattered across the wall behind her. With a quick dive, she was behind the counter with her mother and her friend.

"So, Diane had what seemed like a great idea at the time," Lisa said, beginning the explanation. "She suggested that if we used a water elemental instead of a bowl of water, we'd have to do fewer dishes after dinner."

"As you can see, that hasn't worked out very well," Diane said.

"Yes, as you can see, water elemental plus cake ingredients doesn't yield a floating cake batter and fewer dishes. It apparently instead yields an angry cake elemental!" Lisa pulled a towel around her head to protect her hair from the flying batter. "Cover me, I'm going in!" she ordered. She stood and teleported past the counter to where the elemental was making its stand.

Nagisa threw some nearby kitchen knives to the other side of the elemental, to distract it from her mom's approach. Diane launched a water bolt hoping to dilute the creature. Both attacks served well to distract the creature and Lisa took her opportunity to dive at it. She quickly spoke the words to a spell and the elemental was struck with a powerful fireblast.

Nagisa dove behind the counter again and Diane reacted quickly, creating a shield for herself, blocking the explosion of batter and flour that shot through the room. Lisa, however was too close. When the flour cleared and the room was once again visible, Nagisa stood to see her mother, covered from head to toe in batter and flour. Lisa licked some of the batter from her finger. "Well, at least it's tasty," she said.

Nagisa laughed in spite of herself. "Mom, a lady should really be more elegant," she said while giggling.


And with that silliness out of the way, I return you to our regularly scheduled nothing. What I'm trying to say is "POST MOAR!"

Chapter 9 of The Lore of Poldaran is up. Took me forever to get it done, but it's done finally. Without further ado:

The Sorceress' Apprentice


I intend to write one last story now that I've finished this one, and that should wrap up my story chain. As always, all chapters are listed here.

I took a break from WOW after defeating the Lich King. After coming back for a bit, I rolled an ally toon and am leveling her up. I did the quests in lakeshire and I loved the quest line based off of the first blood movies. They were very entertaining and being a fan of the movies, I had a blast!
