Fear leads to anger

ishitomb

Well, Elder Cloudfall arrived at Domination Point today – with monkey boy Zhi-Zhi in tow, no less – just in time to get treated to one of the very cheeriest of my cheerful moods.  Because no sooner was he on the premises than messengers arrived with a no-kidding-around one-two punch of suck.

So for starters, Ishi and his team of Kor’kron reached that mogu tomb that our scouts located, and were able to confirm that it IS the place that Shan Kien told us about…and then let a team of night elf Sentinels get in there FIRST.  Because SURE, WHY THE FUCK NOT, with the way this week has been going, right?  For fuck’s sake, how did the night elves even fucking KNOW about the tomb?  And they manage to get there AHEAD of us to boot?

Oh, but hey, don’t worry, because even though the night elves got the jump on us, Ishi and his people fought their way into the tomb and hacked their way through the elves, until they reached the Dentinel leader right on top of the Divine Bell…just in time to watch her SNAP IT UP AND HOP THROUGH A FUCKING PORTAL TO DARNASSUS.  DON’T MY MINIONS HAVE THE MOST SPECTATCULAR FUCKING TIMING?

Awesome.  JUST FUCKING AWESOME.

Oh, oh, but hang on, we’re not done with the parade of fantastic news yet.

As if losing the Divine Bell wasn’t bad enough…you know how I’d sent a detachment with Commander Scargash to that panda temple to set up an early-warning outpost for Alliance activity?  Well, they didn’t need to show much patience waiting for some Alliance activity to monitor, because as it turns out, they were attacked this morning by an Alliance force – led by Varian him-fucking-self.  Because apparently dude has nothing better to do with his time.  Based on the initial reports, losses for our side were near-total.  Including the Commander.  And very well also included…never mind.  I’m not letting myself think about it until we’ve had a chance to send some scouts to confirm.  But based on everything we have to go on at this point, it looks pretty damn bad.

I swear, if another messenger comes in here today with anything remotely resembling bad news, they’d better finish by naming their next of kin, because I would NOT want their life expectancy.

So now I get to spend the day with nothing to think about other than an assortment of things I DON’T want to think about.  Like how Varian fucking rolled on in and cost us I don’t know HOW many good people.  And how the Divine Bell — the key to my plans to tip the balance of power in this war – is now in the hands of our enemies.  And spirits know WHAT Varian’s going to do once he gets HIS grubby paws on it.  As if he hasn’t fucking done enough ALREADY.

Spirits save him when I finally get him in my sights again.  They were KIDS, dammit, and…

No.  Never mind.  I can’t even.

So Cloudfall, meanwhile, HE can just cool his jets about this Kypari field trip of his.  Right now I have bigger fish to fry than wandering off to the Land of Vague and Ominous.  Much less when I’ve got other sources telling me there’s more bad news there for me to boot.  We’ve already lost enough good people this week, thanks.  I don’t think we need more volunteers.  So he and his monkey sidekick can kick back and enjoy a little Horde hospitality until we’ve gotten a handle on things.  Ben-Lin probably won’t mind keeping Cloudfall company for a couple days anyway, and as for Zhi-Zhi, hell, goofball that he is, I’ll bet the kids will really get a kick—

Never mind.

I really need to start remembering where that fucking delete key is.

I need to go.  I think there’s a patrol leaving in a minute to do a sweep for Alliance intruders.

I need to go with them.

I need to kill something.

  1. You sent the kids there, don’t you think you should take some of the responsibility for your own decisions?

    • Ok, so I’m risking a lot by admitting that I’m not always the Warchief’s number-one-fangirl, but really?
      Do you WANT to die?

      • Oh, and if that comes off as a threat, it’s not. It’s a warning for you to stay away from the Warchief until Ben-Lin can calm him down a little.

      • The Warchief isn’t much of a leader if he can’t accept the consequences of his decisions. They aren’t children remember? Orcs consider 14 yos suitable for war, that’s their culture.

      • OOC: alliance player – I did warn Averry I’d be less than polite when the time came :) Absolutely love the blog though.

  2. Varian kills children and claims it was for the greater “good”? Typical smug shit. Didn’t even deign to get his hands dirty too….

    OOC: Yeah, I was NOT a fan of “A Little Patience”.

    • ((Same. I finally understood the Alliance players rage once Horde was allowed to play through it. Horrible, horrible writing. The mechanics aren’t very enjoyable, either.))

    • ((High Overlord Saurfang says: I think it was the sounds of the draenei children that unnerved most of them… You never forget… Have you ever been to Jaggedswine Farm? When the swine are of age for the slaughter… It’s that sound. The sound of the swine being killed… It resonates the loudest. Those are hard times for us older veterans.
      Garrosh Hellscream says: But surely you cannot think that those children were born into innocence? They would have grown up and taken arms against us!))

      OOC: Sorry but Garrosh Hellscream has no qualms about the killing of other ppls children.

      • ((“Sorry but Garrosh Hellscream has no qualms about the killing of other ppls children.”

        He had no qualms before he met Gurtash and the kids of the DPS. Blog-Garrosh has grown and developed as a character. Game-Garrosh is probably still without qualms. Or maybe Game-Garrosh will randomly develop qualms without warning. Blizz seems to like to change Garrosh’s character at whim without establishing any motivation for his actions. :) ))
