Oh come on now, you all (by now) know I like a challenge, and so I bring you the Slayer, Book of Grudges style:

[ps. for the record I think what the owner of this dog did is pretty bleh and don’t condone it at all]

[pps. I call him Regis]

Amusements

These things made me smile:

A bunch of Warhammer Online videos taken from action on Karak Eight Peaks. There’s a wealth of videos to choose from, and it’s great to have them all available. Do you have anything similar? Let us know and we’ll take a look!

And Roo, famous from DAoC days, over at Freddyshouse, has returned to verse to produce something pretty spectacular in a thread about potential Dwarf Slayers:

Young orc, der’s no need to feel glum.
Me said, young orc, kick a dorf in da bum.
Me said, young orc, ‘cos you’re in a new zone
Der’s no need to be unhappy.

Young orc, don’t get hit in da face.
Me said, young orc, knockback elves into space.
You can slay dem, and Me sure you will find
Many ways to be ded rock’ard.

It fun to slay at da F-O-R-T.
It fun to slay at da F-O-R-T.

You is green and you mean, biggest orc on da scene
You can eat all the gobbos you see …

Young orc, are you listening to me?
Me said, young orc, get some skulls on your gear.
Me said, young orc, No! Flowers make you look queer.
But you got to know dis one fing!

No orc does it all by himself.
Me said, young orc, get dorf heads on your shelf,
And just go there, to the F.O.R.T.
Me’s sure dey can rez you today.

It fun to slay at da F-O-R-T.

Me felt da uvver orcs were all cunning.

Dat’s when someone came up to me,
An’ said, young orc, drag yer arse up da street.
It a place there called the F.O.R.T.
You’ll be da big nob some day.

It fun to slay at da F-O-R-T.

Why I don’t do Temple of Isha

Don’t get me wrong, there’s a certain amount of manic frenzy about standing at an exposed flag and fighting. I enjoy that part of it, but.. from the very first time I saw the map, I can only think of one thing. First, let’s look at the Temple of Isha map:

And now onto my warped mind.. this is what I think of everytime I go into that scenario…

Yes, the female reproductive system, stuck in my head since those lovely sex education classes at school. So, it’s never been a scenario I can take seriously, and I spend more time wondering if the designers missed the likeness. When I mentioned it to my scenario group once (I’ve been kind of tentative to mention, because well.. I wonder if I’m just weird), none of them had thought of it that way… oops. It did lead to a whole scenario worth of jokes about it though! I’ll leave some of those to your imaginations.

Tor Anroc, while popular and crazy never makes my mind wander – so bring it on!

More discarded post titles

And here we go again, a trawl through the post titles we’ve had sitting in our drafts for so long we deleted them (not really, I don’t think we’ve considered any as proper posts – yet!)

  • Which hairdo for your Swordmaster?
  • Knit your own nurgling
  • Leeching for dummies – max your annoyance contributions
  • What moron domesticated cats?
  • Capturing the Tlag – A WAR Spelling Bee
  • The Good Beer guide to Altdorf
  • That’s it – I QUIT!!!!!
  • Ulthorin and Arkanin: can cross house romance ever work?
  • If PvP = pet vs pet…
  • Feed a Dark Elf a Pie Week starts!
  • Roland the Headless Organ Gunner

Things we love about the game: no. 42

Quality moments catching people on the toilet in Altdorf. Stand too close and you can hear straining noises. No really.

There were tears, but there were also a couple of laughs

Yesterday our guild got formed. For Order characters we found (what we believe) to be the best way to do this fast. Get your 6 people grouped up and get 50 brass each to fly to Altdorf – Flight Masters are at the War Camps. In Altdorf, head to Market Square and pick up the quest to go visit famous locales (Bright Wizard College, Docks, Temple of Sigmar, Emperor’s Palace). Hand in, get 25 silver each. Head to Guild Registrar and make the guild (it costs 50 silver).

Now, we were quite excited about all this, despite woes about the entire guild not being around to share the moment. So excited that we decided to give everyone invite power, so we could grab people as soon as they got in. We quickly found ourselves logging in on top of one another and going invite-crazy.

So crazy that a couple of people got invited purely cos the character names they picked matched up with forum names of our guild members. Oops. Cue much hilarity on Teamspeak as we mocked ourselves for being quite so silly.

The ‘new’ people took it really well, went to check out our guild forums, said they were cool with just being in the guild during the open beta phase. But we spent the rest of the evening laughing about it!

So, beware the perils of inviting people purely on their character name choice (we’ve now instituted a little more security to our inviting too, you need to know the ‘sekrit word’)

Whose breasts are they anyway?

There’s a certain advantage in being a female blogger. It means we can bring you this overview of the breasts in the WAR universe. So, here’s a screenshot of every female char’s breasts – clothed and unclothed (and rank 31, since we’re working with templates at the moment). There’s one from a rank 1 char in there, and I think I left out 1 set of high elf ‘naked’ breasts as the racial unclothed breasts all look pretty similar – showing clothes make all the difference.

Go on, see if you can tell which class each pic is from?

Many thanks to my husband who took all the screenshots while I was out at work and then with our visitors. He managed to capture this screenshot while working on the project – it made me laugh a lot, because the other player is clearly checking out the naked dark elf!
