Ran into Lassair in Cathedral Square the other day, but only would’ve been a minute or two after I got there that she had to head off, take this woman down to the ship to give birth. Good thing she was there, really…it’d be a pretty tough spot if you found yourself going into labour without anybody on hand with much in the way of knowledge on how to help out. Did see Melek after she’d headed off, talked to him for a little bit, just about how I’ve been getting on lately. Not too much of note, ‘part from the fact that he ended up leaving me with this green whelpling. Said he won it over cards, thought it’d help keep me company while I’ve still got a little recovering left to do. No idea what I’m gonna do with the thing…doesn’t seem like it’d be aggressive or anything, so I’ve just been letting it wander around the outskirts so far. Guess I could see if Balderos’d like to try raising it. Considering we’ve already got a kodo out back nowadays, not sure there’d be a massive amount of room ‘round the cottage to keep a dragon. Guess it was nice of him to give it to me, tricky as it’s gonna be to figure out what to do with it.
It was Pirate Day that day. Didn’t quite remember until this one draenei wandered up, told me I was a pirate for some reason or another. Wound up having to change back before too long, but I figured I’d get dressed up for a little while for the occasion. Even put a little bandana type thing ‘round Gloria’s head. Had the stuff just lying around home, for the most part, so figured that was a better option than going for one of the spells that were being thrown around. Odd how those types of things function, at times. One Agnes got tossed at her shifted her into worgen form. Got her in a bit of a fuss, from the sounds of things. Kialthos’ gave him hair. Odd seeing him with anything other than a bald head…I’d figured he was that way naturally, but turns out he shaves it. Story behind that’s that his dentist back on Argus wound up trying to kill him and he got his hair grabbed while he was trying to fight him and his assistant off. Came out of it alright, but he’s kept his head shaved since, ‘part from a couple periods here and there where he’s let it grow. Can definitely see the practicality behind that particular decision. Makes me kinda glad I haven’t really wound up in any situations just yet where my hair’s been a disadvantage, long as it is.
Hung around the square a little while after that particular discussion before it was time to head down south, make our way to Darkshire. There was meant to be this meeting in the town hall, something to do with the rebels that’ve been causing issues ‘round Elwynn and Eastvale. Actually, should mention we ran into Eleysia and Adamar before the meeting got underway. Been months now since last I saw either of them…is good to see they’re still alive and well, even if I didn’t have much in the way of time to catch up with either of them before things with the meeting started going downhill pretty quickly. Suffice to say, rebels aren’t just causing problems north of the river anymore. Grenade got thrown into the town hall while the meeting was going on, ended up doing some damage to a couple of the people who’d been presiding over it. Noise got people in the crowd outside panicked. There’d been a few in the mix with white bandanas ‘round their arms who came at us with knives. Few people who’d been drinking in the Scarlet Raven joined in, started throwing bottles. Wound up being a fair bit of a scuffle, but I think we came out of there without too many major injuries. Didn’t kill anybody, at least as far as I know, although the Night Watch came pretty close. That bastard Riverson was there, ordered a few Watchers to open fire. It’s a good thing we were there to knock most of the javelins out of the way before they could hurt anybody. Don’t know what the hell he was thinking, or what anybody else was listening to him. Hopefully won’t do in future with the piece of my mind I gave him before we got people into the infirmary and headed home.
Anyway, that was I guess what you’d call the major event for the day. Didn’t really do a whole lot when I got back to the city afterwards, ‘part from talking to Agnes and Strahm a little bit. Guessing she hadn’t been planning on doing it right then and there, but after Strahm let the cat out of the bag, she didn’t have a whole lot of choice but to let me know that she hasn’t heard anything from Aurric in a long while now. Means she’s decided to suspend the position of regent, at least until we can find somebody to fill it while Aurric’s off wherever the hell he is. Not that that’s gonna be easy, of course. Don’t think any of the officers’re really ideal for the position, considering I’ve got Gloria to take care of, Balderos has four kids to be looking after and Mitta and Lumenar both have Izzy to think about. Guess anybody filling the position wouldn’t necessarily have to be completely devoid of a personal life, but still, want somebody who can really dedicate themselves to it, as important of a job as it is. Probably something we’re gonna have to put a fair bit of thought into, although the conversation didn’t go too much beyond that point last night. Seemed to be devolving into a bit of argument between Strahm and Agnes after he made a comment about Aurric having been in a relationship with a prostitute, so I figured it was best if I left the two of them to it.
