Texas Teleportation

Eatem and I met some goblin in Booty Bay named Scooty a while back and he mentioned someting to us about a newfangled contraption that would let us take trips to far away lands without the long waits that tend to exasperate those of us that have used the blimps and boats. He'd been doing quite a bit of goblineering and had just about perfected the device. Unfortunately, he only seemed to be able to dial it into a couple different locations. The first being Gnomeregan and the second being someplace called Texas.

We'd already been to Gnomeregan and found it a little over-irradiated. We absolutely love toasted gnomes, but the glow in the dark gnomes leave a bitter aftertaste in your mouth. We figured Texas was worth a gander. Scooty hadn't actually been there and wasn't actually certain that it was on Azeroth. However, he'd beamed some strange looking humans, creatures and plants across and they all looked interesting.

Scooty said that the device, like all Goblin-engineered gadgets, wasn't guaranteed to work and he made us sign some silly forms about not holding him liable for delays, death or dismemberment. He also said that the device would have to be adjusted to work properly with undead beings. We experimented by beaming Eatem back and forth until we had the bugs worked out, as we really didn’t think it would matter if Eatem lost an appendage or two or if they got mixed up. In fact, I think his appearance may have actually improved. However, once he appeared to come out looking similar to how he went in and could talk in complete sentences – we decided it was safe enough for me to use!

Upon arrival, we discovered that Scooty had also, inadvertently, opened a portal between Texas and Winterspring! It was much colder than anticipated and dampened ours and our little ones spirits to a great extent. I even managed to catch some Texan plague and my dripping nose almost matched Eatem's drooling. However, we still had fun in Texas even though it appeared to be overrun with humans. To their credit, they acted most friendly and were only slightly put off by Eatem’s scary hair and interminable drooling. We intended on meeting Jodmos in some town called Austin, but I failed to get the contact information quickly enough before we’d moved on to Houston. Sorry, Jodmos!


p.s.: We enjoyed our trip, but missed our WOW time. Hope to see you soon!
