World of Warcraft podcast The Instance! threw me a link on its popular show. I'm a drop of the week! =D The podcast has a good weekly roundup of WoW news, legit and leaked. Thanks also to JACOB, who sent abits.com in to them.
[edit: Apparently the Instance! link I put up has been broken for two weeks, and despite someone pointing it out in very plain language on the forum, I didn't notice. alllll better now.]
The Next Two Months

Bad news. My current job requires me to work 12-15 hours a day, every single day that they make in a week. It's for a good cause, and it's fair money, but I'm gonna have to cut back on updates - it's gonna be update as update can, instead of once every Friday, between now and the second week of November. Sorry, guys.
If you wanna get allerted every time I update the site - since it'll be less regular now - you should sign up for my mailing list, if you haven't already.
In the mean time, I've added another page to Chapter 16 - just bringing us a step farther along in the mission.

I know that this is old news by internet (and 24-hour news network) standards, but did you hear about Steve Irwin the crocodile hunter, getting killed by a sting ray? Which stabbed him in the heart? The guy died when a wild animal stabbed him in the heart. He died as he lived. I think that all other things being equal, that's the best way for people to die - as they lived. It's not always a charitable thing to wish on a man, but in this case: Godspeed, crocodile hunter. They couldn't take you down until they stabbed you in the freakin heart.
A couple other things. I've redone the default Murloc page on a keen suggestion from forum-hound lordmurray. The full table of contents is still there, just one link away from the main page. If you like that better as your port of entry, you can bookmark it here.
Next other thing: I said last time that Chapter 16 would be the last one in Part Two, but I decided that I had enough left to do that it merited two more chapters. Chapter 17 will be the last chapter of Part Two. Now you know.
Last other thing: this week is looking shaky for an on-time update as well. I'm doing part two of my crazy move tomorrow, which involves a twelve-hour marathon solo drive to Ohio. After that, I start up a job which may or may not turn into a twelve-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week gig. I'll feel it out once I get there, but story posts may be a little shorter between now and November, or I may decide to come off my (semi)reliable Every Friday update schedule for the duration. Don't worry - I'll still keep on writing. I just thought I should give fair warning that it might slow down a little bit for a little while.
Chapter 16 - Not late after all

Rabbits. Also, if you've ever wondered why farmers wear flannel in the middle of the summer, I found out why - hay bales scratch the hell out of your arms when you're throwing them around.
Turns out I was wrong about this week's story being late. Hopefully the fact that I haven't slept on it won't ruin it, as it's a fairly important post. I give you: the first few pages of the last chapter of Part Two. Zounds!
(edit: that previously said this was the last chapter of Book Two. Book Two will keep on keepin' on - it's Part Two that is nearly over.)
