Hallowed Wand production!

We’ve been cranking out these babies like crazy this year!


I love having a season when I can visit Stormwind, Orgrimmar, or any other place I like with impunity.

AND!  With our newest invention I can come and go from garrisons as I please!


Dress up in your leper gnome costume, or force you guards to dress and send pictures to me @siccothermaplug !


Recognition at last!

I received this letter over the weekend.  It is about time.

“To the King of Gnomes, Mekgineer Thermaplugg,

It has come to our attention that you are smarter and cooler than the current High Tinker of the Gnomes.  We would like to offer you a place in the Alliance.  Mekkatorque is boring, we like you a lot.  If you accept, please repair the tram that runs from the entrance of Gnomeregan to the Tinkers court.  We have a large number of Ambassadors that we wish to send for you to meet, and they would like to by-pass the trogg filled tunnels and security systems you have put in place.

Looking forward to meeting you,


King Varian Wrynn, Council of Three Hammers, Tyrande Whisperwind, Malfurion Stormrage, Prophet Velen, Genn Greymane, Aysa Cloudsinger, Jaina Proudmoore, Anduin Wrynn, Master Mathias Shaw, Danath Trollbane, Grand Admiral Jes-Tereth, Halford Wyrmbane, Vanndar Stormpike, Lord Darius Crowley, Vereesa Windrunner, Shandris Feathermoon, Mordent Evenshade, Broll Bearmantle, Muninn Magellas, Brann Bronzebeard, Kurdran Wildhammer, Velog Icebellow, Nobundo, Jarod Shadowsong, Arechron, Ivar Bloodfang, and Elder Lusshan”

I accept.  I need to get the trains running on time down here anyway!

PR Firm

Ressa heard @pommie_tappet ‘s “image problem” comment and took it upon herself to hire a PR firm from Booty bay.  They sent up some junior human with a list of feed back.  Listen to this nonsense!:

“Things take a break from:

1. Stop threatening to kill the High Tinker Gelbin Mekkatorque.  Your stance on him is clear and people are beginning to feel you are obsessed.

2. Stop using the words, “leper” and “irradiated”.  We want to move your image away form the incident in Gnomeregan.

3. Stop attacking on sight anyone that enters the city.

These things are holding you back and you need to let go of them.

There are some things you could to actively improve your image.

4. Begin to removing troggs from Gnomeregan.  Troggs tested very poorly with all groups, especially Gnomes and Dwarves.

5. Play up your desire for gnomes to have a larger presence in the world.  Many gnomes feel neglected by the Alliance and can sympathize with the desire to make an impact on Azeroth.

6. Express some kind of remorse for the event in Gnomeregan.  If not a full out apology, a “Knowing what I know now I wouldn’t…” style statement would go a long way to soften your image.”

Other than #5, I can’t imagine doing any of these.  What would I talk about!?  Knitting sweaters!?

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)


– 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 they PAY to do it!

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  turned 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?


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

I might be down, but I am NOT OUT!
