King Louis XVI: You said it! They stink on ice!
--From History of the World Part I
I have a mid-40s Dwarf Paladin over on the Moonrunner (US) server that dates from the pre-Real ID days. Back then, myself and a few other WoW bloggers created a social guild to connect in-game. As Real ID and cross server grouping has replaced the need to hook up on the same server, the guild has fallen into disuse. That said, every couple of weeks I login to Balthan to get in some low level BG action on a Ret Pally.
Well, the other day I logged in and was greeted by the following pop-up:
Now, let's set something straight: I know that the GM isn't inactive; he's Rades of Orcish Army Knife.
Before you ask, yes, he has an Alliance toon. And a female Draenei Hunter, no less. (So much for that Horde bias, right?)
Considering that I know Rades hasn't exactly bolted for greener pastures, I got in touch with him about this little pop-up. Naturally, he thought it funny that it appeared, and he wanted to see what would happen if I tried to dethrone him. I wasn't so sure about how this would work out, since I was the only person from the guild to login for the past 4+ months, and if there were a vote, I wasn't sure how that'd work out with nobody else to cast a ballot. Hell, given the fact that we'd never identified which toon belonged to which blogger, I had no idea who was even still around to assist.
Well, I need not have worried.
And that was how I ousted Rades in a bloodless coup, providing him with endless fodder for blog posts as the exiled GM of Puggers Anonymous. (Well, it's not really that bad; I kept him on as an officer. You know the quote: keep your friends close and your enemies closer....)
Hmm, maybe I should create a Fabulor toon on Moonrunner before Rades decides to make one there....
