Stormwind's Pet Patrol Goes Too Far: Guards Hugging Criminals to Keep the Peace

01-04-2023 BY Hardhy Lester / Editor IN Misc
In a bizarre turn of events, the Stormwind Guard's "Pet Patrol" program has taken a new approach to law enforcement: hugging criminals. The new policy was introduced last week, and it has already caused controversy among citizens and law enforcement officials alike. According to Sergeant Lisa Adams, one of the officers involved in the program, "We found that sometimes, all a criminal needs is a hug to turn their life around. We're not condoning their behaviour, of course, but we want to show them that we care about them as human beings." At first, the idea of the "Pet Patrol" program seemed like a good one. Officers would be accompanied on their patrols by a variety of small pets, including cats, dogs, and even rabbits, in an effort to make the guards more approachable and friendly to citizens. The hope was.....[READ MORE]

Elwynn man's wild ride: eyewitnesses recount Crazy Carl's dangerous stunts

28-03-2023 BY Hardhy Lester / Editor IN Misc
In a recent incident that has left many scratching their heads, Carl Groo, who is better known as "Crazy Carl" to the locals, was spotted attempting to build a makeshift hot air balloon in the middle of a field just outside of Stormwind City. According to witnesses, the Crazy Carl had fashioned the balloon out of various pieces of cloth and string and was attempting to fill it with hot air using a makeshift burner made out of an old oil drum and some sticks. Even though the balloon was clearly not airworthy, Crazy Carl seemed determined to get it off the ground. "He was completely focused on his task," said one witness, who asked not to be named. "He didn't seem to notice that the balloon was falling apart right in front of him." After several failed attempts, the man managed to light .....[READ MORE]

From mayhem to success: The story of how Know-lodge became Dalaran's go-to bookstore

27-03-2023 BY Hardhy Lester / Editor IN Misc
The Know-lodge book-store in Dalaran has quickly become a popular destination for book lovers and knowledge seekers alike, offering a unique selection of academic and classic children's books, authored by some of the most esteemed writers in the area. I spoke with Daras, the owner of The Know-lodge, to provide an inside look at the store's history, selection, and events. When Daras first arrived in Dalaran, he was surprised to find no book-stores, only a library that catered strictly to those within the academy. This realization led him to open The Know-lodge five years ago, with a desire to share knowledge with anyone who was interested. The first few months were chaotic, with long lines forming down the street and a staff of only five people. However, the store has since calmed, but remains a popular desti.....[READ MORE]

Paladin's Actions Not Representative of Church of Holy Light, Says Leader of Cathedral Chapter

22-03-2023 BY Hardhy Lester IN Misc
The recent incident at the Blue Recluse in Stormwind involving a Paladin's heinous actions has provoked a strong reaction from the community. In a letter to the editor of the Lion's Roar Newspaper, Justicar Vincent Haringoth, a prominent member of the Cathedral Chapter, expressed his deep concern and condemned the actions of the individual involved. To better understand how the community feels about this issue, we went out to the streets of Stormwind to gather opinions from the public. One citizen we spoke with, a local tailor, stated that the actions of the so-called Paladin are despicable and do not reflect the teachings of the Church of Holy Light. "As a member of the Church, I am appalled by the behaviour of this individual," she said. "They must be held accountable for their actions, and we must work to.....[READ MORE]

Young woman murdered by self-proclaimed Paladin

The Blue Recluse in Stormwind was the centre of attention last night as rumours of a murder case spread through the city. The victim was reportedly a young woman, and the perpetrator was identified as a heavily armoured man who called himself a "Paladin," although eyewitnesses claim he was nothing but a disgrace to the Light. According to witnesses, the incident began when a bottle was smashed from upstairs, prompting several patrons to investigate. They found the so-called Paladin holding the woman by the throat, choking the life out of her. The guards arrived on the scene and tried to intervene, but it was too late. The woman had already sustained serious injuries, and the Paladin was taken into custody and charged with murder. "I can give you the story, but not the names," a witness told th.....[READ MORE]

Dwarven Adventurers Brave the Dragon Isles: Encounters with Tuskarr, Giants, and Centaurs!

17-03-2023 BY Torryk Ironskin IN Misc
The Dragon Isles Titans' blessings dear readers, I am Torryk Ironskin, a dwarf from Ironforge, who was asked by Mister Lester to write a report of the experiences that the adventuring group of dwarves, that I am a part of, The Morodnir, gathered on our first journey through the Dragon Isles. We only saw a fraction of these lands and I would like to emphasise that it is not safe to travel there alone, as both the wildlife and the threat of the Primalists remains very real. Our leader, Frolbar Boldbeard, decided it was time for us to experience these new lands, seek out both adventure and the opportunity to lend a hand or two in the fight against the Primalists, shortly after the attacks of these cultists on the Eastern Kingdoms had been contained. We took precautions for an expedition that would last for an,.....[READ MORE]
