On Saturday morning, Navi woke me up to tell me that someone had come for a visit on our server and would like to see me. When I asked who it was, I had a few names pop through my head but was pleasantly surprised to hear it was Ironyca. As soon as I had logged in I was invited to group. First thing we did was go for a ride, giving Ironyca an aerial view of The Barrens and Mulgore heading towards the junction where you can see critters at war. But this didn’t prove to be a very nice spot for any pictures so we headed over to the nearby abandoned tauren camp above Red Rocks.
It was nice to see a familiar blogger in the pixel, especially when it was on our own home server. Although this was not a first for Ironyca, she came here several months ago for my Birthday. Well, not really for that reason, as the Dath’remar fashion show happened to fall on the same night.
Navi had to leave due to a prior engagement but Ironyca and I had a nice chat about blog posts, screenshots and transmog. Not really surprising that mogging would come up as a subject, right?
The next morning, while reading Kamalia’s blog I saw that she had been asked to be a guest judge on Fizzcrank, a US server. It just so happened that the show was going on at about the same time so I took a chance and made a toon on that server. Creating a gnome, I began my journey sending Kamalia a pst on the way there. Seems they were just entering Round Two which meant selecting the Top 10. I also made sure I whispered Ironyca as it was something I wanted to do last time but didn’t want to intrude with the proceedings. Meanwhile, on my side and two deaths later… I ran as fast as my little legs could take me – over to Cathedral Square. Just as I entered the cathedral, I could already see the chat going on as Elvine announced a winner. Then as soon as I entered the main Hall, I heard Noelani on the stream say: “…and hello Cymre.” :)
I must say that I’m not used to being so low to the ground as a gnome. It was pretty crazy in there, with all these giants running around. It was interesting being on the other side of it though, not competing or judging, I could just take my time and have a look at the contestants. Be sure to check out Kamalia’s follow-up post though as it was great to be able to see what I missed at the time.
