Mekkatorque/Thermaplugg Team Up! also Gnome History

Dwarves took everything from Gnomes in Warcraft 3.  Now I’m taking something from them!

Mortar Team!  Mortar Teams were added in Warcraft 3 and appear to be an extension of Warcraft 2’s Dwarven Demolition Squad.  If we were to reference the Warcraft 2 time period, that would be before “The Grand Betrayal” when Mekkatorque and I were still best friends.  (Even If I was already plotting against him.)

It would create an amazing opportunity for some very funny lines, and give us a tiny glimpse in to what gnome were doing in Warcraft 2.  With all the books that have been written and references to the history in the Warcraft Universe, we never hear anything about what Gnomes were doing in Warcraft 2, even though they were there on the front lines.  I imagine that Mekkatorque and Thermaplugg are both Veterans of the Second war, but there is zero information or history about them prior to the Third War. As much as gnomes need more presence in the current story lines and expansions, we need history too.  For us to build our characters and fell like we are a part of the world we need to know what Gnomes have been up to during the major events of the world.

Anyway, look at how awesome this mock up is?  And isn’t “The Grand Betrayal” a GREAT name for an ultimate ability!?




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

Year After Year After Year

I’ve been unfairly characterized and having “snapped” when Gelbin was elected High Tinker.  This is not the case!  Do you know how often High Tinkers are elected?  Of course you don’t!

Mekkatorque took the position young, right out of college.  I tried to be patient and wait it out, but year after year, election after election, the Council of Tinkers gave the position to Mekkatorque.  Every time I would come up with a new more elaborate plan for Gnomeregan’s future.  Only to be shot down by Gelbin’s cronies on the council.

We were starting to get old.  My chances had almost dried up!  If I didn’t do something drastic I would have lived my whole life in that pompous windbag’s shadow!  I had to PROVE my merits with ACTION, and not wait for the political machine to recognize me.

Testing, 3… 2… 1…

Is this thing on? Good, write this down.

Citizens of Gnomeregan! It has come to my attention that Gelbin Mekkatorque and the cowardly gnomes that abandoned Gnomeregan during the Trogg invasion have been spreading lies about your Beloved Leader, ME!

I feel that I owe it to you and to HISTORY to set the record straight on the events of, and leading to the Trogg invasion and subsequent irradiation of Gnomeregan.

Prepare your brains for my up coming clarifications on these events.

That is all.
