In his wayward youth, Tirion Fordring was smitten with the love of a beautiful princess. They went back to “her place:” Maraudon.

However, when Tirion woke up, and the Rhapsody Ale goggles wore off, he found the “beautiful princess” was actually quite ugly, hefty and… hungry.

  1. Bwahahaha! Brilliant! I'm not sure which is my favorite, but I am tempted to write to Blizz and beg them to implement some of these ideas!

  2. The Warsong Tactical Fortress actually would be a cool idea to see implemented, a battleground that was slightly different each time you zoned in. That would be something I'd legitimately like to see them implement.
