Mercyful Fate - The Lady Who Cries

I swear to God, King Diamond is the only singer alive who could pull off this song without it sounding like a train wreck. :P
3452  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / The Misadventures of Alisandre, Part One of Fifty on: May 01, 2006, 02:52:05 PM
Meet Alisandre, Warlock of the Slutty Robes.  Unfortunately for this poor little gnome, the person who controls her really doesn't have a clue what he's doing at times.  As such, a simple quest to go look at an elite turtle turned into a continent-spanning orgy of confused exploration.

It was the Hinterlands, home of gryphons, trolls, and filthy dwarves.  The quest was simple:  find and take a photograph of Gammerita, a level 48 elite turtle.  As you might imagine, Gammerita had a serious issue with having her photo taken, and she went on the attack.  Like every warlock should be familiar with doing, I turned around and ran like a bitch.  And kept running.  And ran some more, because the damn thing was on me like a dog on a bone.

Once I finally came to a halt, I was in the far northeastern corner of the zone, well away from the safety that Aerie Peak provides.  Since I was so far away, and I had no real idea how to climb back up the cliffs I had dropped down to get to the turtle, I had a grand idea:  I'd swim north to the Eastern Plaguelands and get back to civilization that way.  My hearthstone was still cooling down, so I couldn't just zip back in a heartbeat.

Oh dear.

As most of you probably know (and I do now), the Eastern Plaguelands are landlocked.  But I had no idea.  So I swam and swam for what seemed like forever.  I saw no signs of any sort of civilization.  So I kept swimming.  And kept swimming.

I got my first glimpse of trouble when I saw that I was apparently swimming through solid ground.  But I persevered, continuing my long, arduous swim to something remotely resembling an actual zone.

Ah, there it was.  I got that lovely bit of text that said I was in the Eastern Plaguelands.  Finally, I just knew I'd find a beach of some sort so I could actually get on land.

I did.  Sorta.

Out of nowhere, about twenty minutes into this little jaunt, a night elven ruin appeared on the horizon.  No NPCs, no enemies; just me, my trusty felsteed, and an eerie sense that I was somewhere that I really wasn't meant to be.

(This area is found here on the world map, FYI.)

After seeing this, I got excited.  Surely now I was close to getting away from this damn swimming.  No such luck.  I kept swimming west, knowing that eventually I was bound to hit a zone, whether it was the actual Plaguelands or somewhere else.

Then I got some welcome text:  I had just entered Tirisfal Glades.  Lovely, I thought...but then I took around.  When I saw mountains in "Tirisfal" that put Ironforge to shame, I knew I should probably buckle down for an even longer haul across the seas.

So I did what anyone would do:  put myself on auto-run, open the map, and went to get some goddamn breakfast.

When I came back shortly thereafter, I was overjoyed.  I could actually see myself on a zone map.  But although I was in the water on the map, a quick cancellation showed that I was, in fact, standing on dry ground.  I despaired.

I shouldn't have.  The goal was near, the end was in sight.  Sure enough, within a few minutes, I was on soil that actually existed on a map, near a dead sea turtle just to the northwest of Scarlet Monastery.

It was about this time, when I opened my bags to set off fireworks, that I remembered the existence of my Ultrasafe Gadgetzan Transporter.  Oops. :P

So there you have it, a swim that nearly spanned a continent, seeing sights I'm willing to bet few people have seen before...namely miles and miles of uninhabited coastline and enough water to make you loathe the color blue. :P

I bought the Mercyful Fate album "Dead Again" the other day.  I used to have a copy of it, but a friend of mine moved out of state with it after I lent it to her.  The whore.

Man, this thing kicks more ass than I remember.  And I remember it kicking a lot of ass. :P

If church were like this around here, I'd go to church more often than Easter and Christmas.


If you happen to be at work or school, I'd think twice about clicking that link. :P

Too bad it's full of annoying newbies, but that's what happens when you have to scrape the bottom of the starting zones to get signatures. :P

Oh, and I traveled all the way across the world to fight twenty enemies in SM.  That was just silly. :P

Yeah, I couldn't find a large picture of a hammer, but Ban Mallet doesn't have the same ring to it. :P

I have a feeling this will degenerate quickly (yeah I know, like it hasn't already :P), so here are the lessons learned from this thread:

1.  Ctrl + F for the win.  Right clicking and choosing copy comes in a close second.

2.  It's against the rules to cuss here, you fucking cocksuckers.

3.  If you can't find a character's name in a list, you should probably switch over to a genre less taxing on your reading comprehension.

Good day.

Dade, you should know by now that GameFAQs doesn't let you directly link to a faq.  Doesn't negate what you said, though. :P

Well, we moved our old Shadowsong characters to Norgannon earlier in the week, and we've been giving them the lion's share of our time, so don't get too worried about not being there...because we aren't either. :P

I bought the Sabbath live album "Live Evil" this afternoon, because Dio is greater than Ozzy.

Most of Priest's first few albums (barring the first one)  are quite strong lyrically.  They don't really start to decline until "Hell Bent For Leather" and "British Steel", where they first start to get in the sci-fi/biker rut.

That robe came from Razorfen Downs.  We need to go there, because there's some good warrior shit that drops there. :P
