Does Garrosh Hellscream deserve to die? {WoW}

Mar 23rd 2012 4:38PM I think people are looking at this too narrowly, as only a Horde storyline. I realize Mists isn't even out yet, but I've been thinking a lot about where the lore goes from here, in the expansion after Mists. Try this scenario on:

Thrall and Aggra have a healthy, bouncy, baby Orc (keeps fingers crossed he has his Mom's complexion and Dad's eyes). Junior displays a total lack of connection to the elements, despite having shaman for parents, but instead is happiest grabbing the biggest axe he can heft and killing the little critters of Kalimdor. He's heard the stories of his father, but Garrosh is his Warchief. Junior never knew the Thrall who was Warchief of the Horde. Frankly, he sees his Dad as something of a softy, communing with the elements and waving his hands around, rather than picking up an axe and swinging it like a proper Orc. Like Garrosh. When he's old enough, he begs his father for an introduction to the Warchief and quickly ingratiates himself to Garrosh. Though young, he is part of the inner circle, working in and around Orgrimmar, when the events that precipitate the Siege take place. He's there when it all goes down and shows he mixes the best of both the former Warchiefs ... Thrall's knack for leadership and Garrosh's strong arm.

Meanwhile, back in the Alliance camp, Anduin has begged his father to be allowed to join the Siege of Orgrimmar. With prodding from Jaina, Varian agrees with the condition Anduin hang back and use his priest abilities to heal any Horde citizens who get caught in the crossfire. The Alliance (and some portion of the Horde along with an intrepid band of 10 or 25 heroes) finally confront Garrosh and bring his reign to an end. The cut scene starts to play and we see Prince/Priest Anduin trying desperately to heal his mortally wounded father. The Alliance soldiers fall to one knee and bow their heads as Jaina approaches. She lays her hand softly on Anduin's shoulder and says "It's over. There's nothing more you can do Anduin. His soul is finally at peace."

And so we come to the expansion after Mists, with the next generation stepping up to lead the Horde and Alliance - King Anduin on the throne of Stormwind and Junior, the new Warchief of the Horde.

Mar 16th 2012 5:29PM Just one burning question .... WHEN????

Breakfast Topic: Who's the new star of the expansion? {WoW}

Jan 25th 2012 7:33PM I don't remember their names, but the 2 goblins who give you the safety demonstration while you wait to take the gunship to twilight highlands always crack me up.

Hey, I can shoot my house from here!

You're not firing that thing into Bilgewater are you??

No. Maybe. Just a little.

Profanity filters, homophobic slurs, and Blizzard's shaky relationship with the LGBT community {WoW}

Jan 25th 2012 7:12PM Censhorship may ease the symptoms, but only education will cure the disease.

The hard part on the internet can be separating THAT GUY from the one who really believes what he's spewing. THAT GUY is only trying to stir folks up ... Look at me, pay attention to me!!! Many times they don't really believe what they're saying they just know it will get a rise out of folks. Responding to them only feeds the fire.

But if you run into someone who who truly believes blacks/jews/immigrants/gays/people who read books - whatever - are "bad", then you can make an impact by discussing it with them. Respect their opinion, listen, and explain calmly why you disagree. Give them something to think about. One person at a time you can change a whole culture.

The Daily Quest: Something old, something new {WoW}

Jan 25th 2012 6:27PM I'd be happy if they could at least let the poor people of Menethil Harbor put their sand bags away.

Bashiok on BlizzCon: "It makes sense to focus our efforts" {WoW}

Jan 25th 2012 6:11PM Discussion around the water cooler at Blizz HQ:

Dev1: Crap, we're are sooo far behind on MoP. I'll never see sunshine again.

Dev2: I feel your pain bro. Starcraft seems to fall farther and farther behind no matter how much OT we put in.

Dev3: Yeah, if the suits don't stop coming up with changes to D3 this thing will never get released.

Dev 4: Blizzcon is gonna be horrible this year, with all the players QQing about why we haven't released anything yet.

CM: Hey, that gives me an idea .............

Breakfast Topic: What NPC do you miss the most? {WoW}

Jan 24th 2012 8:25AM Old Blanchy and the nice couple who sent you off to find him oats. Poor Old Blanchy, such a pretty horse. I always secretly hoped if I fed him he'd follow me and I could keep him :P
