Fabulor decided this weekend that it was time for him to take up a craft. He mused over the potential choices for some time, weighing the various merits and drawbacks.
Blacksmithing and Mining were immediately out, of course. All that soot, dirt and dust? Unthinkable! Herbalism was similarly discarded. Rummaging around in the dirt like some rodent would absolutely ruin Fabulor's perfect nails, you realize.
Inscription seemed intriguing, until Fabulor realized all those inks and pigments would unquestionably stain. Rejected!
Jewelcrafting, however, seemed a perfect match. Expensive gems, elegant jewellery? Mithril Filigree? Totally Fabulor. He told his butler to purchase some basic gemcutting supplies and put them aside for later.
As for the second choice? It was a no-brainer, really. Fabulor was entirely sick of his flying mount, a plebian, hairy, smelly wind rider. An Elf like Fabulor needed to fly around in style...something that would immediately set him apart from his "peers" and visibly indicate his vast superiority. A Flying Carpet was really the only way to go.
Plus, Fabulor mused as he collected his various silks and cloths from the mailbox, there were so many delightful shirts and outfits he could make! In fact, he may have made himself a beautiful Robe of Power because it complemented his Silvermoon tabard marvelously, despite the Robe being absurdly expensive and utterly useless to him.
Ah, the price one pays to look good.
Fabulor tried to teach a Troll about the fine art of fashion. Sadly, it may have been a lost cause.
Soon, Fabulor's fabulous shirts were a hot item, flying off the Auction House as fast as Fabulor's servants could list them. This was no surprise, of course. Just the latest in a lifetime streak of unbelievable success.
Word spread quickly - everyone wanted to be like Fabulor. Of course, this was utterly impossible, but they could at least pretend to be like their handsome idol with one of Fabulor's special creations adorning their gangly frames.
Fabulor quickly realized the lucrative opportunity on his hands, and decided it was time to take his craft global. He labeled his clothing brand - what else?- FABU, then expanded his wares, established a healthy stock, and before he knew it, FABU had swept across the planet.
