The Upcoming Vanilla PvP Gear Surge

The upcoming Marks of Honor changes in the current PTR build means more than just easier PvP access to the people of Argent Dawn. It means some neat outfits.

The Vanilla (World of Warcraft before the two expansions) PvP sets were very reminiscent to the armor of Warcraft III. With Alliance RP holed up in the Human city of Stormwind, the Plate sets are very popular for those who RP with a Military background.

Pew Pew

Brief bit of news from the latest PTR build:

Engineering: The Pet Bombling and Lil' Smoky non-combat pets are no longer Bind-on-Pickup.

Something tells me there'll be a small arms race in the coming weeks.

The Gyrocorps And You

Yum, Gnome Guilds. When done right they're just so enjoyable. Which is why I want this to work.

The 1st Gnomeregan Gyrocorps are the first line of the future Gnomeregan Reclamation. Based in Kharanos, they're dedicated to making the process run as smooth as possible, and they need you! send a Plain Letter to Tirrypin if you're interested. It's a Military guild with a Gnome twist (read: about as strict as a Theramore Peace Conference).

What's that? A New Gnome Guild?

Coming soon to an Ironforge near you, a new Gnome Guild!

I used to run a Gnome Guild with a friend of mine called The Gigaflux Guard. I'd link you to a site or something, but their current state is... not what I wanted when I left. The whole reclamation of Gnomeregan has stirred things up in the Gnome world, and I feel the time is right to run another guild to represent them. Equal rights for smaller rights, and all.

Argent Dawn and Me...

Now the site is somewhat legible (unless you use an ancient version of IE) I figure I should actually start posting about what I wanted this site to be.

About, let's say three years ago, I joined the Argent Dawn EU server thanks to my brother. At the time he was already part of the servers Roleplay illuminati, so it was easy to piggy back off his success. Somewhere about a year into my RP-time, I discovered the wonders of Gnomes! Since then, my main has been Moppentoff.

Football - A Diamond-Encrusted Mugs Game

For my Writing for Broadcasting course, we've been given the task of writing 300 words or so on Football; debating on whether it's a good thing or pretty sucky.

Obviously this is being written for Radio, and kind of needs to be neutral. I forgot about that at first:
...I went to the cinema recently and was subjected to an advert for a generic sports brand of clothing. The ad entailed of numerous people, clearly at their place of work, instead playing with a football than actually being useful to the worlds economy. That group of people probably single-handedly lost Wayne Rooneys daily wage in the space of thirty seconds. Arseholes.

This idea of Football being the one true escapism from the drudges of normal life is pretty tedious. It's a sport, not a ticket to surefire glory and "bitches in the back" or whatever the kids call it. The amount of effort that people put into their obsession with the game can be scary. Football Manager is a strong testament to the lenghts people will go to to make sure their Pixel Perfect dream team dominates the globe with an iron boot.

Ah well, back to the drawing board.
