arvashSasche had done her dailies and procured her dinosaur bone quota for the day so it was Cat’s turn. Cat wanted to replace some poor and common quality pets. She was cursing in a most unladylike fashion at the new 10% forfeit damage. In the wilds of Stranglethorn while hunting for a Crimson Moth of other than poor quality she noticed she had mail.

Cat was so intent on her search for the elusive Moth she didn’t remember her mail until returning home. What’s this! An email from The undisputed King of Gadgetry and Pets? Arvash of The Crimson Hammer? OMG! OMG! I won! I won a pet! A Gusting Grimoire! YAY! YAY! She was pretty excited! I don’t blame her!

Arvash had posted a contest, he said:

So, interested in owning your very own Grimoire? Well, I’m giving away two Grimoires to two lucky readers, all you have to do is leave a comment at the bottom of this post, telling me what your favorite or most memorable book or books are and why. I’ll go first.

One of the most memorable series I remember reading were the Anne McCaffery’s Dragonriders of Pern books.  During middle and high school, I spent a lot of time at the local library after school waiting for my ride home, immersing myself into the fantasy world of dragons.  McCaffery’s books immediately got me hooked on these mythical creatures; maybe that’s why it was so easy to pick up WoW, with all of the flying beasts it contains, lol.

I had loved the Dragonriders of Pern series. One of many worlds that I lived in before Azeroth. When I was twelve I lived in West Africa in a time before Kindle and suitable books weren’t that easy to come by. I raided my father’s library and I think that started my dual citizenship in real life and other worlds. The first I remember was Asimov’s Foundation Trilogy and the rest is history, lol.

grimI wasted no time getting him set up with coaches and off they went to the Heartland for training. He’s level thirteen now and taking to battling like he was born for it. Oh, and his name is Tome of Pern!

A really, really, big, Thank you Arvash!
