Guard Your Kneecaps by rachelillustrates Guard Your Kneecaps by rachelillustrates
Some WoW humor, inspired by an incident at my support-job. Being a short person is annoying sometimes. This is how I imagine my warrior, Knuffig, would react ;p

:bulletred: EDIT :bulletred: Edited to make the blacks like they should look. Muuuuuuch better.

My gnome warrior Zipstitch would agree. "Laugh while you can, I've just pwned your kneecaps!" :evillaugh: And yes, Zip's a tailor... because a warrior can have a lot of fun sewing pretty robes for his squishy cloth-wearing buddies. :XD:

Hehe, awesome! This Zipstitch sounds very interesting, and I'm sure my Knuffig would get along quite well with him :D

Zipstitch is great fun, he's leveling slowly since he's one of my many alts, but he does very well indeed for a little blue-haired dude. "Speak politely and carry a big two-hander sword..." He's working toward being able to sew up a flying carpet - somehow he got wowed by one in Stormwind and that made him take up needle and thread. That and the chance to sew up pretty shirts for his lady friend the human death knight Ron Tuaru.

He'd get along with your Knuffig just fine. He'd be happy to buy a round of ale for her and her friends sometime at the tavern. :beer:

Lol, awesome! Knuffig does love her ale, especially when she doesn't have to pay for it :ahoy: Again, he sounds fantastic. I really like that he got wowed by a flying carpet - very nice, real touch. I love fleshing out characters like that, since those kind of RP aspects of the game often get put aside in favor of killing and looting.

If you have any drawings or screenshots or anything of him, I'd totally love to see them! Might even result in at least a sketch ;p

I always end up with backstories for my guys, whether they're on an RP server or not. They all have their tales to tell. :boing: I love the game for its stories and so far I do much of my character-leveling via questing.

I checked last night and didn't have a single screen cap of Zip, so I took a couple. I'll try and get those up soon. At the moment he's got a bunch of gear from his foray into SFK. He didn't much approve of Lord Walden and his buddies. :XD:

Very cool. I do most of my leveling by questing too, so I get what you mean. Ironically, I only have one character on an RP server, and she has the least story out of all of them ^^;

I'll keep an eye out for those screencaps too :D

Heh, if you keep RPing, your character will get a background eventually. :XD:

Finally got some screen caps of Zip and put together a simple reference sheet. I haven't tried drawing him, myself, I need to give it a go. His reference is here [link]

I've done two drawings of my main character, the death knight Ron Tuaru, and one of my Worgen druid Greyling, but that's about it. I really should do more. :D

Ooh very nice! He looks like he'd be a lot of fun to draw :D

And I'm sure that one character of mine will get her story eventually. I'm a little stuck where she is right now, because it may involve killing Gnomes, and I have such a hard time doing that even though its just a game. I do want to get going with her soon, though, because she's a Goblin and I think the Goblin/Gnome interplay is lots of fun (especially in that one barge town in Thousand Needles).

I'm but 5'6", and I'm teased by most of the women I know...for being the tallest one. So - in a way - I guess I can understand her frustration! :D
I didn't think that 5'6" was that tall, until I found some short friends! LOL!!!

Ha ha I love it! This is what I wish I could do to my customers at work! (I work in a liquor store and I'm only 4'10" so I get alot of rude comments on how much I look like a child :|)

But yeah anyways nice work! I love the text too, so clean and neat <3

I have a friend who has a most intense hatred of gnomes for their small size, believing them to be fit for use as footballs and little else.

I showed him this. He laughed.

Doubt it, but it means he can put aside his seething hatred long enough to appreciate talented artwork, at least.

:giggle: Don't kid about that stuff, I had a Gnome sorceress in DnD once who Magic Missle'd a naked human man who was stupid enough to jump right in front of her, so certain parts of his anatomy were right in her face.

That's the central logical flaw with Japanese Hentai movies. You'd think a creature that led with its genitals would be pretty easy to deal with. ;)

Okay. I did get it, but haven't had time to sit down and check it yet, assuming its something you want me to read and look over and such. Will do soon. At least I've managed to get Tanisevania's flirting going ^^;

I'm in no real hurry for the Book IV stuff. I've got about six other projects going right now, not to mention my campaign has started up again. I have gotten all your stuff for the flirting and am doing my best to stay on top of responding to it.

Cool beans! Sorry about tonight too, with Kel's back. But at least that gives us more time to cover the flirting, especially with what's come up in it.
