News from Gnonest
Hallo! Zis is Gnonest. I zought it vas a bit unfair zat Gnolly should heff to do all ze vork keeping up zis journal, so I heff decided to post a bit uf news myself.
First uf all, you should know zat I don't like machines very much. Sure zey may be convenient sometimes, but at some point zey vill break down und zen you heff an entire city uf leper gnomes on your hands. Magic is much safer, zough Gnolly vill disagree viz me I'm sure.
But lately I heff been running around a lot. Say you vant to catch ze ferry to Booty Bay und you are in Feralas. You heff to run halfway zrough ze Zousand Needles und halfway zrough ze Barrens yust to catch ze boat! Vhen you valk it takes forever, und on top of zat ze Barrens are very dull und ze Zousand Needles little better. Also I tzink Gnolly may heff been getting a little bored heffing to valk vhen he has a mechanostrider at his beck und call.
So I broke down und decided to by a mechanostrider uf my own. First I had to raise some cash, vhich I did by taking on some contract vork in Alterac und ze Highlands. Unfortunately I met viz some resistance from ze locals, usually viz results like zose you can see below.
Efter much hard vork I vas able to buy a small feazerbeck.
It is certainly much faster zen valking, but so noisy und dirty! Vheeze, clank, vheeze, clank viz much engine noise und big puffs of smelly black smoke vherehever you go. Und uf course zere's no telling vhen zese gnome-built contraptions vill blow up or break down. Honestly I em so nervous vhen I get on zis tzing I can hardly stop shaking. In fact some human guards pulled me over in ze Highlands because, zey said, I vas "piloting erratically."
But I complimented zem on zeir uniforms und efter smelling my breaz zey let me off viz a varning. A good tzing too; efter buying zis piece of scrap I can hardly afford zread!
