MLG seeks Adventurers for Menace

Sorry Mekkatorque, I think it’s time we menaced other people.  It’s clear that I am just too much villain for you to handle. Operation Gnomeregan was a nice diversion, but you failed, and I think it’s time we both moved on.

I am sending out a resume to other heroes of Azeroth to take me on.  If you know of an ACTIVE hero looking for an involved and interesting antagonist, please let me know!

My accomplishments include:

– Betraying the trust of my closet friend.

– Exterminating 80% of my own race.

– Multiple unethical experiments

– Patent violations

– Half Machine (Waste down)

Skills:

– Engineering

– Alchemy

– Knitting

Job History

– King of Gnomeregan from year 20 to present.

– Adviser to High Tinker 10+ years

– Veteran of the Second War, Submarine commander

Mount up!

There have been some requests that I unrestricted the airspace in Gnomeregan.  That’s not going to happen.  I don’t even allow ground mounts down here!  The Anti-air disruption field is not going anywhere!

BUT that did give me an idea.  What better way to get adventures to work slavishly for me AND for FREE!

Sell them mounts.  The best part it that they still PAY for the mount, they just do the work for the RIGHT to buy it.  I can’t stop giggling to myself about the idea!  Ok here goes.

Honored – Giant Irradiated Cockroach  It’s first on the list because I have a LOT of them down here, and I want to get rid of them.

Revered – Metal Snake  Inspired by the Rock Worm samples from Deepholm.  These are a complex set of magnetically quantum locked gears. There were a lot of kinks to work out, seriously hundreds.  The first one I tried to turn on collapsed in on itself like a Quel’dorei Soap Opera.

And finally I was told everyone already has a bunch of Rockets to ride, and even some meks!  PLUS some a-holes stole the plans for the Mekgineer’s Chopper from me and made a bunch.  So I had to go a different route.

Exalted – Lifelike Mechanical Magnataur  Ride around like a bad-ass on the coolest monster ever.*

The Best Part of My Day

The best part of my day is hunting down the foolish adventures that think they can defeat me and openly mocking them on Social Media!

Oh you got this?

GnomeAch

Defeat eh? HA!  I’m coming after you with 140 characters of taunting revenge!

I might be down, but I am NOT OUT!

A Gnomeregan Carol #OOC

I asked all the people I follow on http://ask.fm/SiccoThermaplug if they could add a quest to the game, what would they like to add?

I asked because I have one in mind.  I would like to see Gnomeregan moved to the Caverns of Time.  The quest would be to escort Sicco Thermaplugg of ~30 years ago through the dungeon and show him the destructive results of his deeds, Ghost of Christmas Future style.

Then when you get back to regular Gnomeregan, it is a full and flourishing city in the over world, because it was never destroyed.

It might be that Gelbin needs to do something important and the infinite dragon flight stopped him now we need to make it right.  Whatever the lore reason, that way the Devs get the keep the dungeon as a dungeon, but also give gnomes their city back.

Gnomish Zodiac

I promised after renaming the days of the week and the months, that I would post some old Gnomish Zodiac stuff that was sitting neglected in a library. A few notes:

1.  I have not updated the old Month names to reflect the ones I previously announced.

2.  These are considered old superstitions by most gnomes.

3.  I can’t match the constellations pictured to actual stars on Azeroth.

4.  I have condensed some VERY long passages in to their core ideas.

Introduction: “The universe is a large turning wheel.  Each of these signs is a part in a larger machine.  The role we play in life is a part of a larger whole.  These signs are meant for those who feel lost or out of place to find a calling that resonates with them as individuals.”

Z06Clutch – JUNique 22 – JULtility 22

A control or operating mechanism. Clutch gnomes enjoy using new tech as opposed to designing or building it.  These gnomes are most likely to be pilots. They tend to only master enough engineering to keep devices working.  When in a group they feel a need to be in charge.

Z08Visor – AUGizmo 22 – SEPTransgear 23
