Around Azeroth: The NIOSH report is forthcoming

"Keegan Firebeard did not think things through while stabling my mounts in the garrison," writes submitter Amrasillias of BiS on Eonar (EU-A). "Ten out of ten firemen would not recommend putting a Flameward Hippogryph next to a single stack of hay, let alone two stacks of hay. Long story short: I had to rebuild my garrison. Firebeard is fired, of course." (For the 99% of you who don't read the NIOSH fire fatality reports, you're welcome to check them out here.)

Around Azeroth: The end of the innocence

Submitter Shikí of Sojourner on Kargath (US-A) was on hand to document the final destruction of the Warlords of Draenor beta servers earlier this week. While she was on the server that was crashing constantly, she managed to snap a few good pictures. "Stormwind was very full of people on their shiniest mounts," she writes. "About thirty minutes before the snails arrived, the sky got strange and it started to rain. I thought it was a really pretty effect with the spiral of flying mounts amidst the stormy sky."

Around Azeroth: Fright night

Since it's Halloween, I tried to come up with the scariest screenshot I could find. And then I stumbled across this gem from Mayliffe on Argent Dawn (EU-A), who combined Belbi's beer goggles with the Gnomish X-Ray Specs to create a world where everyone is a naked male gnome. AAAHHH! I'm terrified! But really, I hope you all have a spectacularly spooky night. As for me, I'll be working ... on Halloween ... on a Friday night ... when we're down three ambulances on the schedule. Now that's scary.

Around Azeroth: Cat versus water

"I decided to have a little fun when my orc death knight was abruptly transformed into a cute little black cat upon opening a Hallow's End pumpkin at Sri-La Village in Jade Forest with his Path of Frost still active, and gleefully took off across the sea," writes submitter Klawe of Maximum Pwnage on Earthen Ring (US-H). "However, he stopped short of actually making it to Windward Isle because I hear there's some even bigger cats prowling around there."

Around Azeroth: The price of greed

"Pssh," scoffs skeptical submitter Ghouldilocks of 憤怒使者, which she translates as Wrathbringer. "The 'Cursed' Cache. A likely story to keep would-be robbers at bay. Look at that treasure! A heap of gold just wanting to be loved, to be held ... it needs me. It's almost as if it wails to me in loneliness. Perhaps a bit too forward -- certainly a tad too loud for my tastes. But don't worry, darling. Tonight, you're min--"

Around Azeroth: Watch the throne

While everyone was distracted by fighting the Iron Horde, submitter Planck of Planet Express Crew on Shu'Halo (US-A) decided the time was right for a unilateral invasion of Stormwind. Of course, it didn't hurt that the 6.0.2 patch had temporarily removed all NPCs from Eastern Kingdoms on his server. Planck bravely fought his way through nothing to make it to Varian Wrynn's throne, where he donned some shades and chilled with the gold lions until the NPCs presumably respawned and instantly slaughtered him.

Around Azeroth: Not exactly Hogwarts caliber

"There's something new added to the Mages' Quarter in Stormwind - an outdoor Wizard's School," writes submitter Arugadh of The Brotherhood of Iron on Wyrmrest Accord (US-A) "Which looks odd and scary all by itself, because the kids are all the same boy and girl, stretched and enlarged and shrunk to different sizes, though all with the same blank-eyed zombie expression. Oh, and the male mage desperately needs volunteers for his lessons. Really desperately. Go on. Talk to him and find out how desperate. Don't say I didn't warn you."

Around Azeroth: Midnight blue

"File this under our guild motto, "Hold my drink and watch this," writes submitter Gimmlette. "Spectacular Death on Llane (US-A) ran Siege of Orgrimmar, first wing, to give a few boosted 90's the chance to get gear. After Norushen, one of the tanks, BigBearButt, suggested he run into the next room and use his battle horn. What could possibly go wrong with this idea? Or, as Peter Venkman says, 'I love this plan! I'm excited to be a part of it!' We only wiped out half of the raid the first time. A couple more blasts and we had 98% of the room. There were a couple that stubbornly resisted the call. Rounding them all up created a really cool pattern, almost like Picasso's blue period."

Around Azeroth: Too cool for Westfall

Are giant, square '80s sunglasses the new Azerothian trend? I hope not. Some things don't ever need to be revived. "With the new model updates, I noticed the mercenaries by Mortwake's Tower are looking just too dang cool for their own good," writes submitter Revy of Moon Guard (US-?). "Only they would be able to pull off a look this good."

Around Azeroth: First in, last out

We get more of these every expansion. Submitter Mementh of Earthen Ring (US-H) wanted to be the first one to welcome the Iron Horde to Azeroth, so she camped out at the Dark Portal Monday night, just waiting for the green mist to turn into red. Instead of greeting her in a civilized fashion, they chose to run her through with spears for being part of the traitorous, fake Horde. And she'd cooked them a nice dinner and everything!

Around Azeroth: I read it in the daily mail

"Everyone knows about the poor mail service in Azeroth, what with wages and benefits being reduced and mail carriers on a work-to-rule campaign," writes today's submitter. "Sestertaa, my faithful banking alt on Thunderlord (US-A), therefore didn't have high expectations the other day that her anticipated package had arrived. Much to her surprise, however, some poor sap was in a much worse state from the long wait for his mail to be delivered. Sestertaa is now seriously considering using AAMS (Anytime Anywhere Messenger Service) next time she sends that special package."

Around Azeroth, Beta Edition: Animal attraction

What do wild animals think when they see a druid in feral form? Do they consider it an outsider, or do they welcome it into the fold? Beta tester Skamp of Thunder Cats on Borean Tundra (US-A) seems to have drawn the attention of this weird toucan-like bird, but so far it's holding off on attacking him. Good thing, too, because that sword-beak looks like it can do some serious damage.

Around Azeroth, Beta Edition: A woman of mystery

Who is that orc? She's so mysterious! Well, she's standing atop a bed of flowers using a branch with berries as a sword and a flower as a shield, which is actually pretty mysterious behavior for anyone who isn't a six-year-old girl or a drunk cosplayer. Still, if you have to title yourself Mysterious Orc, you might be trying a little too hard. (Thanks to beta tester Nganga of Pact of War on Silver Hand [US-H] for the screenshot!)

Around Azeroth: No room at the inn

"Thanks to the weakening of the boundaries between alternate realities (CRZ), this is just your average day in Goldshire's Lion's Pride Inn," writes submitter Enishi of Darkwind on Wyrmrest Accord (US-A). "Alliance, Horde, debauchery, it's all here. Those unfamiliar with this Moon Guard reality take heed; there have been troubling reports about people who've spent too much time there. It changes everything about them -- acting different, dressing different, growing mustaches. They collect robes, lotions, new bedspreads, curtains, have tastes for thick carpeting and weirdo lighting, and they often get new friends to match their new tastes. If you're not into that, keep your head down, get in, do your quests, get out, and leave town without reading chat."

Around Azeroth: Next season on Game of Thrones!

Let me tell you a story, adventurer. This is the tale of an age long past, when the pandaren were forced to worship the larger, levitating pandaren. Someone was carrying around a red ball. There was also the ghost of a dead saurok, and a statue of a dragon, I guess. And ... all the larger pandaren were doing the YMCA dance? None of this makes any sense! Assistant Lorewalker Martin! This story is incredibly long and confusing. When will you have the next tale prepared? Six years, you say? Adventurer, do you still have that blackjack you used on those Lazy Peons so many years ago? I have a new quest for you. (Thanks to Qaeto of Trollbane [US-A] for the screenshot!)
