Wandering Souls

The Wandering Souls inhabit the realm of Scarlet Crusade on the world of Azeroth. This motley band of disparate characters strive to improve their lot in life, or the afterlife (depending on whether you are an undead or not), and that of their guildmates.

Blackfathom Deeps & Highland Games

We took Andawan up on his invitation and gathered for a venture into the cold dark deeps of Blackfathom. Andawan and Maalir scored perfect dives as they leapt into the dungeon’s pools from on high. Andawan mentioned something about being an expert at cow tipping or was it cow dipping? Not sure which. However, we all had difficulty in making the jumps across the ruins to penetrate deeper into the dungeon. I was surprised that the large Taurens could even make the leap. Now that was an awesome sight! Along with the two Taurens, came Eatem, Witch and I.

Problems arose with the Murlocs. God, I hate Murlocs! They killed us all, but we came back and obtained our revenge after sprinting from the graveyard. Other than that first hiccup, for the most part, the group performed like a goblin watch; sweeping through the caverns and slaying our enemies with clocklike precision. Unfortunately, we were quite literally killed by herd of turtles near the end and had to call it a night! I may learn to hate turtles even more than Murlocs. To relieve some of my stress, Eatem and I are going to kill and skin turtles in the river near Tarren Mill tomorrow.

We knocked off for the night and pursued more relaxing endeavors. In fact, Maalir worked on her sewing and learned a new pattern that Andawan picked up. It’s amazing what Maalir can do with those three-fingered hands. Here she is shown with her new Highland Kilt. She is currently planning our first Annual Highland Festival, which will be held sometime after the square dance. As a proud Highland Cow, she demonstrated the Clog Dance for me. During the festival, there will be, at a minimum, competitions on the following events: Clog Dancing, Sheaf Toss, Hammer and Stone Throw and Tug-of-War. I’m sure we will find a good spot in the Arathi Highlands. Hope to see you there!
