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.

Lean, Green, Fighting Machines

Well, maybe not so lean. At least in Andawan’s case!

We learned today that the color coding on the quest log really means something, as we optimistically tried to “Rescue the Princess” in Arathi Highlands. For those of you that don’t know - The glowing red letters in the quest log mean --- “Danger, Danger, Will Robinson!

However, with a loud snort and a gusty laugh, our two awesome warriors, Odor and Andawan, in their brand new green goblin suits shook off any thoughts of danger in the menacing cave as they rubbed their palms together in greed as they thought of all the mineral riches that the cave held! Besides, they were dragging me along, just in case they ran out of bandages. While I on the other hand, who had absolutely no interest in metal or rock, followed them unknowingly into the jaws of death. Besides, what could go wrong? These were Kobolds! I remembered Kobolds from a former life in Northshire Abbey. Kobolds fell over when you breathed on them.


We knew we had problems when the monstrously mean little Kobolds ignored the big brawny warriors in their fancy green suits and instead were drawn like moths to a flame to my pretty cloth robes and I. Obviously, they eat silk.. Oh and priests of course! As they did repeatedly, by the way. But, warriors are stubborn beasts and THAR BE GOLD IN THEM THAR HILLS! … and Mithril and Iron and Lesser Bloodstone. Our wee little group slogged on and eventually after repeated near-death experiences… oops, typo. And eventually after repeated actual-death experiences we reached the goal of the quest. It was at this point that Andawan’s connection gave up and he vanished from existence…. ARGGHH!

Truly, it was the most difficult and unfortunate of quests. The unholy bane of my poor internet connection pulled me from Drywhisker Gorge just as we reached the height of victory! Atohne and Odor must have felt a truly emotionless victory over the kobolds without their jolly green tauren!

Fortunately, I managed to venture in the next day with a sorry (and I do mean pathetic) group of non guildmates to try to save the princess! Having gone so far as defeating the stone giant Fozruk, he await the company of the fine warriors Odor and Atohne again so that they may finish the quest, and free the princess!
