The machinema is good for a first attempt, whenever I caught myself tweaking at the choppiness I reminded myself it was a first attempt and I frequently tolerate worse machinema on the basis of story alone.Which brings me to my main point: am I the only one to find the story cliche? A gnome being ignored by large quantities of non-gnomes, especially the women folk. I've always felt gnomes get the raw end of the race deal. I don't know why they are treated like throw away dime store kittens (or more accurately feeder mice).You know what I want to see? A gnome machinema where the gnome kicks butt and it isn't because they are sad about being rejected for being a gnome.

I actually worried about it being cliche: overlooked guy goes on a rampage and then regrets it, but I couldn't ignore Cellophane and rogue together.The gnome thing had nothing to do with anything, at least from the creation standpoint. The reason he's a gnome is because my husband's rogue is a gnome, and it was the only high-level rogue I had access to. It could have just as easily been a night elf or a worgen or a human (for the Alliance!).

Fair play on the Gnome thing, but then my question becomes why pick only human and night elf females? I didn't mention it in my original post, but the music matches the story and the character - and the pacing is spot on.
