May 8th 2010 7:06PM It's been a busy week, indeed. It all started out with fighting troggs. Troggs, troggs, and more troggs. Is this what I get for staying in Dun Morogh? But, no... Leaving home didn't mean leaving the battle against those blasted troggs at all! Instead, I find myself defending King Bronzebeard's lands against... MORE TROGGS! Although a chance errand to Stormwind did result in my dealing with a grave menace to the people of Elwynn Forest, along with meeting some new friends.
...And a rival, of sorts. Blasted kids these days, no respect for their elders, I tell you. I'm sure the lad means well... but nonetheless I find myself needing to show him up, blasted whipper-snapper.
Even now the other mages are laughing at my studying the arcane school. While they hurl fireballs, or cast bolts of frost, my primary skill is summoning food and drink, and turning people into sheep. I'm much too old to be put out by their derision, of course, and know full well that my choice is, in the end, the most reasonable one.
My meager and laughable skills aside, I've been striking fear into the Defias Brotherhood, killing many of their number and gathering their bandanas as proof. But my time in Westfall was short (here, here!). There is little (here, here!) to hold me there. A chance request sent me back to Loch Modan again.
I must go. Captain Rugelfuss has tasked me with the job of killing the leader of the Troggs of Loch Modan, Grawmug, and his two guards, Gnasher and Brawler. He's even offered to sweeten the deal by promising me a new pair of trousers...
May 1st 2010 9:55PM Gampher Gyrolock here. If it spins fast and locks in place, it probably has MY name on it! I'm not only the world-renown inventor of the gyrolock, but I've trained more and better engineers in my time than... What? You've never heard of the gyrolock? Old Gampher is completely unknown to you? Kids these days!
So I've been retired longer than most of you young whipper-snappers have been alive! I still have all my mental faculties, and that's what it takes to be a mage by gum! I also have all my TEETH! Good gnomish dentistry, that's what. Now if only time and age had been so kind to my hair...
For our leader Mekkatorque, I'm willing to come out of retirement one last time. But this is IT. We take back Gnomregan or die trying and then I'm headed back to my retirement villa, and Wednesday shuffleboard. Never heard of gyrolock... What is the world coming to?
