Um, Who are these People?

If you’re ever flying around Feralas there is a lake north of Dire Maul with an island in the middle. I decided to check it out and found a large group of people who seem to have recently survived some kind of violence, and it looks like the violence took its toll as there is a grave with the marker “Ivan” on it. Questioning them doesn’t work they aren’t very responsive. They all have un-azerothian names and someone brought their pets along as Rocky and Rose the cats wander the area.

On goggling Lake Dumont you can find this listing at Wowpedia. It’s bad enough that I now spend most of my wow time flying around digging up fragments now I’ll have to stop at every out of the way place to check for stranded people because now I’m convinced if there’s one group there has to be more!

How I Spent my Wow Holidays

Yep, still addicted to archaeology. I feel like a naga version of Where’s Waldo. After I got my Bones of Transformation I think I tried those babies out in every continent. I have to find just one more rare and I’ll be an Associate Professor, yay!

Aside from that I’ve been doing important things like trying to find a Mysterious Camel Figurine. I’ve been trying to find Aeonaxx again. The first time I was in Deepholm I saw him and had no idea that he drops the Reins of the Phosphorescent Stone Drake, I think flew away from him, I thought he was going to get me, geez.

And I’ve been gambling. When my scribe was leveling up she made a bunch of Fortune Cards. At the time I was saving them up as they are used to make Fortune Cookies but then I found out that there is a infinitesimal chance that if you flip them you might get a Fortune Card that sells for 5000 gold. Yes, I flipped them all, I think I made about one gold and some change. I have resisted the urge to waste my Blackfallow ink on making more so far but it isn’t easy.
