Last post was on the 15th. Didja all miss me?
That yellow gown might happen, but only as a collaborative effort, not a personal one.
We got through the MHRA inspection last week with only a few minor observations. Yay! We get to stay in business.
My car had to work hard to start this morning. I am hoping it was just the cold. And it is very cold.
Speaking of cold, last week the AC was broken, so my floor at work was up near 80 thanks to the boilers. Today... 66. My fingers are going to get chilly.
Yesterday I did the "Culling of Strathholme" for the first time (WoW reference). I find it VERY disturbing to play an undead character (probably any character, but undead in particular) while helping to ensure that Arthas becomes part of the entity known as the Lich King. And the part that isn't disturbed... wants to cry.
I can still, to this day, remember my shock to see the hero of Warcraft III (it was three, right?) turn into the villian. I thought for sure we would see him redeemed by the end.
You know... I still expect to see him redeemed by the 'end'. Whenever that is...
Yay for your company being able to stay in business!
Stay warm today. Brrrr. 66 in the office sounds horrible.

I knew you would sympathize with the heat deficiency. I think you would have enjoyed the almost 80. Heck, if I hadn't been wearing a sweater, I think I would have, too.

Yeah, like the plague! Lol, jk.
...prolly in Warcraft IV or WoW-2.

I dunno. Maybe we will just get to kill him? But that really would be 'the end' unless we are to start taking on corrupted aspects directly.

The Culling of Stratholme is when Arthas realized what the plague was doing and decides that everyone in Stratholme has to die, as most (not all..) are infected. It's kind of the last straw before he is made into the first death knight. I am pretty sure it's the section where you have to destroy all the buildings - a part I really sucked at.

They don't quit being disturbing about the whole thing. Witness the "Culling of Stratholme" instance I refered to (it's a time travel thing) and the instance we call "Black Morass" (also with the time travel) where we have to protect Medivh while he opens the Dark Portal, letting the demon-tained Orcs through into Azeroth.
And this doesn't even touch some of the quests we are giving by some of the Undead NPCs. *shudder* I don't want to give anything away, but something that happens in Northrend (specifically in Dragonblight) shouldn't really come as a surprise to anyone in the Horde.
OH! And doing the Blood Elf paladin quests! Blood Elves are not very nice people.

Something I wasn't clear on - the players are there to help the Bronze Dragonflight keep the timeline on its 'original' course, while the Infinite Dragonflight is trying very hard to stop the culling of Stratholme....
Just like they tried to stop the freeing of Thrall.
And the opening of the Dark Portal.
And.. wait, I am not sure how they were interfering with the Battle of Mount Hyjal... I bet the devs just wanted to set that up for the Multi-players
I've been thinking about how to do it, too. I have some ideas...
I've wondered what Strat people were talking about. Is it in CoT or is it really at Strat?

The Culling of Strat is in CoT, yes, right next to Black Morass, if I remember correctly.
I thought Mount Hijal was next to BM in CoT.
I dont' know. I've never been beyond H BM in there.

As you come out the entrance ramp (not to be confused with where you set down if you fly down) Mount Hyjal is the first cavern on your right, with Old Hillsbrad beyond. It used to be that Black Morass was the first cavern on the left, but now Culling of Strat is first, with BM beyond... unless I got myself all turned around, which is possible.
