The Troublemakers

Bringing a Metric Carp Ton of fun to Sunday & Monday nights

We are a casual Alliance raid team on the Aerie Peak server and part of the Convert to Raid guild. We are looking to make progression in normal and heroic raids for World of Warcraft Battle for Azeroth.

The Case of the Missing Bodies - 6/8 Normal Eternal Palace

Day one -

QUEEN AZSHARA: Welcome to my palace. Now dance raid monkeys! Amuse me or I will end you.

BOSS MAN SHAMADIN: Ok everyone, welcome back to raiding. We have some old faces returning and some new * mumbles * converted faces again. Each of you should have a raid strat packet. I hope you have looked it over and…

AURANE: Um okay, she’s certainly full of herself. End me…pshhh. Azerite explosions didn’t ‘end’ me”.

BMS: Aurane, are you paying attention?

AURANE: Absolutely!

BMS: Ok then, you know what to do. Let’s get in there and wreck face!

< INSERT RAID TEAM EXCITEMENT >

Fast forward to Commander Sivara = REKT!
”Don’t cross the streams!”
”You got your poison in my frost! You got your frost in my poison. Two awful tastes that DO NOT go great together.”
”Ok, group up everyone for a kill photo”
< body disappears >
”What the?”

Fast forward to Blackwater Behemoth = WREKT!
”Can we do a kill a photo here?”
”Oh look bubbles!”
”I want to pet the jellyfish.”
”OMG! Sea horse rides.”
”Nevermind the photo, I guess.”

Fast forward to Radiance of Azshara = REKTED TOO! Electric Boogaloo
”ARCNADOS! MOVE!”
”I’m afraid of the dark, hold me!”
”That dude has been working out since Legion.”
”What is this crystal? No body? Lame.”

Fast forward to Lady Ashvane = WRECKTIFIED! (Is that copyright infringement?)
”Uh, she DID NOT age well…yikes.”
”RUNE BUDDIES FOR LIFE!”
”Guys, this is nuts! I thought we were supposed to save the coral?”
”Ok, we have a body, group up for a photo”
< body disappears >
”SERIOUSLY!?!?”

Fast forward to Orgozoa = SO SO REKT!
< Dances like a raid monkey >
”Ew, wth is incubation fluid? GROSS!”
”Where did he go? AFTER HIM!”
”IT’S A TRAP!”
”Get the hulk!”
”Ok, NOW we’ll get a kill photo.”

“OH COME ON!”

Day two -

Fast forward to The Queen’s Court
”What are you doing?”
”Raid lead said pee in the back.”
”He meant Pashmar you idiot. Gross!”
”Oops!”


Time warp to the kill
”KILL SHOT, everyone get in.”
< body disappears…again >
”Ok, this is getting ridiculous. I give up.”

Will our heroes solve the case of the missing bodies? Are they merely so excited to loot new bosses that the bodies disappear almost instantly? Tune in next week for our shocking conclusion…maybe.

Jaina, we are so very sorry. It wasn't us, I swear! (Hides AotC badge)

PERSONAL NOTE:

Congrats to our Troublemakers for another Ahead of the Curve. You guys are awesome for sticking to it and it feels good to finally have the job done. It really is awesome to see how far everyone has come as players. You rock! Keep up the good work and we will see you in the Eternal Palace.

Also, shout out to our Facepull friends that tagged along on various attempts to fill in some role gaps. We could not have done it without you.

Now…Jaina, show us on the doll where the bad horde touched you. It totally wasn’t us doing a Freaky Friday. Promise.

But wait, there’s more…STORY TIME!

Aurane approaches the team’s office door. She pauses for a moment before opening it, talking only loud enough for her to hear.

“It’ll be fine, right? I mean, I’m not dead. They will be happy to see me, right? So I totally didn’t send any word back after that whole Silithus thing, but after what went down in Tanaris it was radio silence. I mean, I couldn’t send them any word without jeopardizing Operation Safe House. They’ll understand…right?”

Aurane takes a deep breath, holds it, then exhales and opens the door.

“Hello?”

Silence.

“HeeeellooOOOOoo?”

Nothing.

“Huh, they must be out.”

She takes a look around, surveying the new office space.

“The new digs are nice. I could get used to Boralus.”

“Clearly I’m going to have a lot of cleaning up to do. I leave them alone for a few months and the file system is totally jacked. I mean, who files like this? This isn’t the post office fer crying out loud.”

Aurane wanders over to the desk to check out the latest logs & reports.

“Awww, they did it! Good job guys. They are probably out celebrating right now.”

A smile slowly spreads across her face as she sits down at the desk…then fades.

A moment of silence for Mekkatorque's suit

It was a nice suit.

In honor of our achievement over the great High Tinker Mekkatorque hurdle…more haikus, because the world could always use more haikus.

ONE SHOT! The Kat says.
We dive in with no leader.
Victory or death!

Wipe after wipe ends.
The mighty Mekkatorque down.
For the Alliance?

Yeah, that still feels weird, but now..it is on to Blockade and AotC!

Seas swell and storms wail.
Tempting songs lure us to death.
Lo Stormwall Blockade.

See you next week everyone!

~ Aurane

I'm sorry...here's a haiku!

Yes, I know. The stories have been lacking. To start the amends process, I give you this hastily written haiku commemorating our 100th attempt on Heroic High Tinker Mekkatorque and the 1% wipe last night.

It tastes like burning.
Ow, ow, ow…owie…ow, ow!
Hate you sheep shrapnel

Burned into my brain for all eternity.

Burned into my brain for all eternity.

Your humble chronicler,

~ Aurane

Adventure awaits!

Boss Man Paladin sat alone in his office. It had been a tiring, but reasonably successful first week in the Nazmir jungle. After locating the ancient Titan facility known as Uldir, the new team had done a good job getting in there and cleaning the place up a bit. There was still a lot to do, but they were really starting to come together. His thoughts were interrupted by a firm and steady knock on the door. He rose from his desk, went to the door, and opened it.

POSTAL WORGEN: Mail delivery for you sir. Sorry for the delay, mail routes have been all kinds of squirrely since we moved operations from Dalaran to Boralus. We are still trying to catch up.

The worgen handed him a rather large stack of mail with a postcard on top. Boss Man Paladin knew immediately who it was from.

He flipped over the card and read;

Hey Boss Man,
I made it to Tanaris! The new crew is already here and we are ready to get production under way PRONTO! It’s hotter than Moonguard here during the day, but the evenings are nice. Give my love to the gang.
— Aurane

Underneath the postcard was another letter, also from Aurane, only this one was severely damaged. He opened it and found a hastily scrawled note.

I hope you get this because HOLY CRAP! Plans changed overnight here in Tanaris. We were all set for some location shooting when the ground started going all rumble bumble on us. Word from Silithus was that Magni needed help so pretty much the entirety of Gadgetzan has been conscripted into his service. Our film project is on hold and we are moving out. No idea what’s going on over there yet. I’ll try and report back when I know more.
— Aurane

POSTAL WORGEN: I know it’s been awhile because of the postal delays, but I’ve got some friends down in Silithus I can get word to now that the portals are open. Want me to see if there is any word on your friend?

Boss Man Paladin had completely forgotten the worgen was still there and was mildly startled by the question.

BOSS MAN PALADIN: I’m sure she’s fine. She’s a resourceful gnome.

Boss Man Paladin quickly scribbled a note of his own down on a card and handed it to the Postal Worgen to deliver to Aurane. It simply read…

Four new big bads down.
You’re still short.
