Failed retraction


You know, they say you’re not supposed to kill the messenger, but in this case I just couldn’t help myself. So that was that for Grimtotem #1. As for Grimtotem #2, the one we found lurking around the Dranosh’ar Blockade, I still wanted some answers about what HIS deal was, so I handed him over to our old friend Draz’Zilb and told him to work his magic (literally). Here’s what he dug up.

Both of these Grimtotem were among a small portion of the tribe still loyal to Magatha. Ever since her business with the Twilights, most of her people got pretty chilly with her, at the least, but she still has a handful of supporters. These were two.

The original messenger was sent with Magatha’s letter several days ago. The whole point – obviously – was to give me a few days after…well, you know…to give me time to stew and suffer and really sit down for a big serving of my own liver, and then slap me with the truth to rub salt in the wound. Apparently, though, after the messenger was sent out, Magatha somehow caught wind of what we have brewing for the humans – Draz’Zilb’s uber-corruption and Sylvanas’ plague and the attack on Theramore and I’m thinking maybe I should stop announcing this stuff on the internet. Anyway. So she decided it would be better to hold off on telling me the truth until AFTER I’d opened all those cans of worms. Why not get me going taking my vengeance on the humans, THEN hit me with the revelation that I was avenging myself on the wrong people? In Magatha-World, that’s just getting the best return on your investment.

So, that’s when she sent Grimtotem #2 to try to intercept Grimtotem #1, to try to prevent that letter from being delivered just yet. It was just pure dumb luck that we got it before that could happen.

That’s us. Just swimming in good luck.

All that said, blasting Theramore into pea gravel is STILL the right thing to do. It’s the logistical staging area for everything the Alliance is doing — everything the Alliance HAS done — in southern Kalimdor. Take it out, and their forces in the Barrens die on the vine. Or at a minimum, they require a lot more effort to support: a well-trained Mage is way more expensive than a mule team.

It really doesn’t matter that JP had nothing to do with recent events. Her city is too dangerous to be allowed to exist.

I would first be interested in what Magatha would get out of Theramore’s destruction, ensure she won’t get her way, then blow that place to bits.

If Garrosh wants to make a statement abut his feelings for the Alliance, Theramore is the way to go. I have to wonder what the impact will be to the ongoing conflicts (Splintertree, Astranaar, etc.) and Grimtotem infestation in 1k Needles. The Orc’s are mighty but this ups the ante quite a bit. I can see needing a little help from friends.
