Lord Afrasastrasz calls Alexstrasza & Lirastrasza bitches, gets kicked out of Red Dragonflight

Lord Afrasastrasz, former Commander of the Wyrmrest Temple Defenses, has been kicked out of the Red Dragonflight after drunkenly insulting Alexstrasza and Lirastrasza.

According to eyewitness reports, Alexstrasza and Lirastrasza had just finished meeting with some of Azeroth's mortal races, where they had adopted their customary elven forms. While awaiting the ship that would take them back to Northrend, the two disguised red dragons were quite shocked when Lord Afrasastrasz -- also in his mortal form -- stumbled up behind them and began verbally harassing them.

"I'd never work with you bitches if I got the chance!" slurred Afrasastrasz at the astonished female dragons, after noticing their Wyrmrest Accord garb. "Do you know who I am??"

"We certainly do," bellowed Alexstrasza, transforming back into her draconic form, towering over the shocked and surprised male. "And do you know who I am, Afrasastrasz?!" The Life-Binder then spent the next ten minutes berating the disgraced Commander, before banishing him from the Red Dragonflight on account of being a miserable embarrassment to his flight.

A contrite Afrasastrasz issued a statement the next morning, after spending the night on Ferithos' couch.

"I'm so very sorry! No excuses," said the humiliated male. "Not the dragon I want to be or want my kids to be. Raised by Mom, 3 sisters. Ashamed of my words."

Death Knights Accidentally Raise Two-Handed Axe as Fourth Horseman

As a result of a bizarre misunderstanding, the Knights of the Ebon Blade resurrected the final member of their new Four Horsemen yesterday: Trollbane, a two-handed battleaxe.

Trollbane, an epic-quality weapon sporting +20 Agility, +50 Stamina, and two Prismatic Sockets, joins Nazgrim, High Inquisitor Sally Whitemane, and Darion Mograine as the new Four Horsemen, raised to battle the Burning Legion at the behest of the Lich King and his new champion, the Deathlord.

When asked why the death knights would choose a literal axe to be one of their horsemen, Ebon Blade lieutenant Thassarian frowned and rubbed his forehead wearily.

"You know this blade..." he muttered. "Everyone does. A little too well, apparently. See, we actually wanted Whitemane to resurrect Thoras Trollbane, legendary warrior and former king of Stromgarde, to be the last horseman. Unfortunately, it seems there may have been some...miscommunication, somewhere along the way."

Thassarian sighed, watching the other three Horsemen attempt to buckle Trollbane into its new Deathcharger saddle.

"Well, what's done is done," he said. "I guess we'll just have to chalk this up to clerical error."

Archmage Khadgar muted by new Dalaran Silence Penalty

After Dalaran's Council of Six implemented its new Arcane Silence Penalty city-wide enchantment yesterday, it took only mere hours before the powerful spell muted their first person: Khadgar.

The archmage was clearly upset, gesticulating wildly at nearby citizens, but the spell's silencing effects prevented him from being able to verbally explain his frustration. He did, however, hold up a copy of the letter he had received from the Postmaster for curious passerby to read.

"Dear Khadgar, your fellow heroes have reported you for abusive language multiple times. Due to these reports, we have had a Shadow Priest silence you for 24 hours and deleted your premade group post "Please, We Need to Stop the Legion" in the Dungeons & Raids Finder. If you want to appeal our decision, please submit a ticket."

"This clearly be some sort of bureaucratic mistake, mon," said a troll rogue volunteering to translate for the beleaguered archmage, who was still able to privately whisper people. "When the Council agreed to cast the spell across the entire city -- thanks for that, Rhonin -- I was told it wouldn't be no automatic process. Clearly someting's gone wrong. Buff Outlaw Rogues!!"

Fellow Council of Six member Archmage Modera seemed equally baffled by the incident. "Yo, there's still an investigation when you get reported," said Modera. "The new silence penalty doesn't mean some multi-reporter can insta-silence you." When asked how Khadgar had ended up silenced, Modera frowned and said the Council would be "looking into it."

Despite Khadgar's experience, others seem to have nothing but positive things to say about the new Dalaran feature.

"Me and my 39 demonic friends think the new silence penalty is just great," grinned Gul'dan, Darkness Incarnate, Destroyer of Dreams, the Great Betrayer. "Like, sure, let's say hypothetically someone were to gather a bunch of people and then all report someone they don't like...it sure would be awful and easy to abuse if their spell automatically silenced that person without checking or verifying the reports! Ehh heh he he hee...but who would do a thing like that. Drink."

Boorish ogre stabbed 126 times after telling Garona he'd like to see her naked

Guests and dignitaries at Azeroth's first global peace talks were utterly shocked when the emissary from the ogre clans began spewing lewd comments at Garona Halforcen, renowned and respected warrior-assassin.

During the stunned silence that fell over the crowd following his initial remarks, the ogre -- crude and classless even as far as ogres go -- winked at Garona and suggested they should go out sometime.

"I can get a little grabby," leered the disgusting ogre before being interrupted by the deadly assassin, and by interrupted we mean brutally and mercilessly vivisected.

Following the incident, everyone retook their seats and had a wonderful time. A custodian was called to collect and deposit the ogre's remains in the trash, where it belonged.

"I'm really not sure why they picked him to represent them," said Anduin Wrynn afterward, cringing. "I mean, their entire reputation to the rest of the world was riding on his shoulders, and he made a total ass out of himself with his shameful, gross behavior. It's going to be really hard for everyone else to take them seriously now."

Wrynn sighed. "It really was a fantastic evening, too. It's such a shame that idiot had to ruin such an important night with his big stupid mouth."

"Maybe next time they'll pick someone who isn't a total disgrace."

Stormwind City destroyed after Horde stops saving it

The capital city of the Alliance has been destroyed by Warlord Zaela of the Iron Horde after a small group of Horde adventurers elected not to stop her.

"Have you come to get a first row seat for Stormwind's destruction?" taunted Zaela from atop her dragon after being confronted in her lair deep within Upper Blackrock Spire.

After conferring for a few seconds with his companions, Genshi, an orc rogue, stepped forward and shrugged.

"Actually, that sounds pretty good with us," he said. Behind him, the other four Horde adventurers nodded and gave Zaela big thumbs-up signs.

"Good, I have been waiting for -- sorry, what?" said Zaela, blinking in surprise. "Um, well, okay then. In that case....uh, off I go!"

"I'm really not sure what she was expecting," said Carianna, a blood elf paladin, as the Alliance capital city went up in flames far off in the distance.

"Granted, we did save their city once already from the Botani and that big genesaur," she added ruefully while sticking a handful of Conjured Mana Marshmallows on skewers. "But like, there was a real lot going on right then, and that mage lady was being really loud and wouldn't stop shouting, plus I think Saurfang was giving us like 50 gold to stop it.

"But this time? Hey, have at it, lady."

The extent of the destruction has not yet been fully determined, but survivors were able to confirm that when Zaela began the attack by dropping a massive Iron Star into the city, it landed directly on top of the newly-restored Park, utterly demolishing it.
