Around Azeroth: We drink alone, with nobody else

"So after finally recruiting Fargo Flintlocke to my garrison, I've taken to having him patrol with me as I run around doing all the daily duties that a good commander does -- y'know, try to influence him by example, that sort of thing," writes submitter Arugadh of The Brotherhood of Iron on Wyrmrest Accord (US-A). "But yesterday, he wasn't out in the open hanging around the Pleasure-bot as he usually is. I found him in the Inn, sitting at a feast-loaded table with one of the lumberjacks and Admiral Taylor. Admiral Taylor looked decidedly miffed at being there. Which leads me to wonder if Flintlocke was at Taylor's Garrison before it got run over ... and what the true circumstances of Taylor's demise are. Knowing Dave Fargo, there's a story there that'll be the source of a hysterical cutscene at some point as yet unrevealed."

Around Azeroth: Get teenage kicks right through the night

Who's that staring at his motorcycle pin-up calendars and smoking behind the high school? It's Charlie Brown, the baddest teenage goblin in all of Draenor! Although considering their tendency towards explosive engineering failures, it's pretty common to find young goblins smoking. They're just usually on fire while doing so. (Thanks to submitter Nounours of GrandGalacticInquisitor on Llane [US-A] for the screenshot!)

Around Azeroth: Something to talk about

"In scenic Elodor, before the Altar of Sha'tar, both neutral groups and Alliance organizations convene to plan the downfall of the Iron Horde and the safekeeping of Draenor," writes submitter Ironholde of The Dwarven Vanguard on Moon Guard (US–A). "Ironically, few draenei seemed interested in participating. No wonder they were obliterated in our timeline."

Around Azeroth: We're living in a powder keg and giving off sparks

"Being undead isn't all it's cracked up to be," writes today's submitter. "With the help of the Dark Lady, Goodytwoshoe on Duskwood (US-H) may have escaped the Lich King's control, but her mind didn't quite come with her. She can't always remember whether she's an Alliance human or a Horde undead, so when she found herself with gunpowder, she may have tried to blow up the wrong target." Or she's a double agent for the anti-Thrall contingent! Burn the heretic!

Around Azeroth: Half faerie, half dragon, half pig

Submitter Istara of First Bank of GWAR on Crushridge (US-A) stepped into her garrison one morning to discover that two of her pets had mated to produce ... whatever this is. Dragonboar? Faeriepig? I guess it doesn't really matter. The important question is this: is it edible? Because those wings look like they would be delicious with some honey glaze. Time to take it to the barn and find out what it's made of!

Around Azeroth: Give me that old time religion

"While I may not be a young tater tot of a gnome anymore, I still like visiting Greatfather Winter," writes submitter Perki of Spectacular Death on Llane (US-A). "Especially for an old timey-wimey photo op!" Greatfather Winter has the same look on his face that mall Santas do when they have stoned teenagers trying to sit in their laps. Maybe the energy spikes from the legendary cape are hurting him?

Around Azeroth: Patience is a virtue

"My friend and I decided to take a flight using Aviana's Feather," writes today's submitter. "Things didn't go so well, as we ran into the Tanaan Jungle Exclusion Zone. Somehow, we ran into one of the hidden walls and I (the druid) got stuck. He tried to get off and stretch his legs, but were it not for being an gnomish engineer, he would have become a pile of guts on the ground. After a while, I tried to walk, and discovered that this was a knife's edge, as I soon fell. Thankfully, having an engineer friend saved us both." Stop trying to get into Tanaan, folks! It never ends well.

Around Azeroth: I knew we forgot something

"These socks are so cool!" exclaimed guildmistress Gimmlette of Spectacular Death on Llane (US-A), upon receiving her present from Greatfather Winter. "We need a guild photo with our socks. Meet me in Ironforge by the tree in the Explorer's Hall. Wear your sweater and your socks."

Five minutes later, Gimmlette deeply regretted not including pants in that order. But they went ahead and entertained bystanders anyway.

Around Azeroth: What's mine is mine

"Having a good day, collecting garrison resources," writes submitter Tomez of Whisperwind (US-A). "Having a good day, collecting herbs. Having a good day, collecting ore -- oh my God. Huh. How did this happen? What the heck did the miners do to my level 3 mine? This is not what was in the blueprint!" Sneaky little thieves, those miners. It''s those damn Molly Maguires again! Someone call in the Pinkertons. We'll have your mine back in a jiffy, boyo.

Around Azeroth: Loves me like a rock

Ah, crap. My bad, guys. I honestly thought I'd clicked off the Odd Polished Stone buff before the boss fight. Okay, we can salvage this. Does anyone have an empty plot in their garrison and really want a souvenir of this victory? I figure we can get a couple of warriors to chip away at this thing like a pinata until we can reach our loot. It should only take a couple of months. Oh, come on, a /gkick? That's a little excessive. Everybody makes mistakes. (Thanks to submitter Corvinna of alea iacta est dignitas on Earthen Ring (US-H) for the screenshot!)

Around Azeroth: Peace on Draenor and good will towards birds

Submitter Aibelle of BloodOath on Ravencrest (US-A) noticed that her Pepe was getting lonely in her garrison. Also, she was becoming a little tired of constantly cleaning bird mess out of her hairdo. So she was rather pleased when she built her new stables and noticed Sky'reen had taken up residence. Now Pepe has another avian friend, and Aibelle can explore coiffure options beyond "basic night elf ponytail."

Around Azeroth: And that's why you don't play around in a lumber mill

"Apparently Phylarch the Evergreen didn't have to be worried about 'inhumane' wood processing techniques," writes today's anonymous submitter. "Why, humans can safely sit on top of a circular saw with no ill effects! Trees, on the other hand ..." I think I saw a video about someone who tried this on the first day of middle school shop class. It didn't end well for that kid.

Around Azeroth: Visit Ye Olde Orgimmar

"So I was doing my daily quest to get my Stolen Present in hopes I would get this year's version of the dagger," writes submitter Magoi of Clan Plaid on Staghelm (US-H). "Being a rogue in need of a main hand upgrade has been my motivation. No luck yet. However I did get a Scroll of Storytelling and thought I would try to take a old-timey photo of Orgrimmar. Turns out it looks like something my character's grandfather might have taken many, many years ago. Hope you enjoy and happy holidays to everyone there!"

Around Azeroth: Decorating with dragons

Today's submitter writes, "Professor Excaliblur from Magtheridon (EU-A) loves to mess with arcane forces -- shape shifting, matter entanglement and such -- and often lets the brainstorming blow his mind. Some call him insane. He says he's an artist. So why not make a time-frozen dragon do a very odd limbo dance move trying to eat a wreath ribbon? He quickly found a suitable dragon by rummaging through the portal space. (Unbelievable what stuff mages are dumping there.)"

Around Azeroth: Because I'm tacky

"Because you can find garrison resources most anywhere, I spend a lot of time poking around in all the buildings," writes submitter Gimmlette of Spectacular Death on Llane (US-A). "(Yes, I know about the maps you can get, but that kind of takes the fun out of 'Oooh. What's in here?') I was questing in Pinchwhistle Point and ran up into the main building. To quote George Takei, 'Oh myyyy.' Complete with door beads, I'm not sure if this is an homage to the 1960s or just bad taste. It does need the addition of a lava lamp and mirror tile to be complete, but this makes me thankful for dwarven decorating tastes."
