Gnomes should merge with bunnies.

Confirmed: Anansimedes is actually a robotic man-shaped construct, built and piloted by an intrepid gnome genius.

(Except he locked himself in the suit accidentally, hence the screaming. Eventually he'll die in there, and the man-suit's autopilot will take over.)


(EDIT: This is actually how humans and dwarves evolved - the autopilot programs for two distinct models of giant robotsuits which continued functioning after their pilot-gnomes died for various reasons. The current lore on human-dwarf origins is inaccurate.)

Must have been confusing for him to realize that his entire people are a fictional group created by a dull bunch of humans, yet he somehow got into reality nontheless.

Probably the source of his insanity.

This system is working as intended. Sacrifices must be made. The greater good. The greater good. Manual override denied. This system is working as intended. Move along.

Don't know what messed up timeline you're following but according to Mt. Hyjal questing it has been around 12 years since Capital City fell.

Yes I've looked for it multiple times but I never found it.

Such a shame, and kinda odd to make such an awesome success and then never capitalize on your hard work. Where by capitalizing I mean get a few pats on the back from other fans.

I actually did find Reforged some time ago:

http://www.movellas.com/book/read/20...56766#chapters

I kind of forgot to mention it because I found it, um...disappointing, as far as my favorite character's characterization went. Also, I discovered it through a site about purple prose descriptions of eye color, which should give you an idea of what the writing is like.

I wasn't a fan of that Calia story either. It felt like it was all about showcasing a fan theory and didn't stand on its own very well, because if you don't care about certain forum debates, you have no reason to care about the "twist" at the end.

maybe she escaped to Kul Tiras and settled there

then Kul Tiras can become an active part of the Alliance in the reconquestation war of Lordaeron

When I was at Blizzard I had the idea of making her this really, really world-weary sardonic woman, the logical conclusion of her whining about being married to Deathwing as her only character trait. My image for her was basically like Lucille Bluth with a cigarette always in hand who just spends all day belittling everyone around her.

Then the Dalaran-coin implication that she apparently liked the idea of marrying Deathwing.

Makes me think she was Garrosh-level bipolar.
