Guild Stories: Nobody Expects the Faithless Inquisition

Hello, my still faithful (I hope) blog readers. Since we’ve started the guild, I’ve been writing up summaries of our stories there on the guild Discord, but I never published them out to the public. I figured people would be interested in hearing what happened to Krasha since, so I’m sharing the Discord summaries here.


While Ethan’s old friend, the gnome agent Jeb Spoggins, was visiting, the grummle Pennywise who helped ferry us to Azj’Aqir seat in his mole machine, came to us asking for help. After Azj’Aqir couldn’t pay him after his failure to beat Skitra, Pennywise was let go and returned to his village, only to find it worshipping Mazu – and the iconography let him believe they were worshipping Azshara. At his behest and the promise of loot, we went to his village, where it turned out few people liked him, especially after he said their goddess was an evil monster. But we tracked down their religious leader, Goldfish, to a cave nearby where we found – to our surprise – a sethrak being sacrificed to power a demonic gate. Goldfish turned out to be a wyrmtongue and after we dispatched him, Pennywise and the sethrak, Torque, left to try to find the demon the grummles were unknowingly worshipping.(edited)

We followed the trail to an old troll ruin at the coast of Kun-Lai, where we found a couple of demons trying to corrupt a devilsaur with fel. After we killed them, and the devilsaur ran off, healthy, we found the alleged goddess – in fact, a shivarra who wanted to open a portal to free Sargeras from his prison. She escaped, but she sent a hulking eredar brute after us. Although he caused some damage, we killed him fairly quickly.

Following on the shivarra’s whereabouts, we encountered the Shado-Pan, and Master Snowdrift promised us his help in getting Pandaria rid of this demon. For an evening we strategized and came up with a plan to deal with her. At the same time, we found out she’s not as powerful as she claims to be and will be unlikely to successfully summon Sargeras.

Nevertheless, soon after we enacted the plan. We drove Pennywise’s mole machine into the temple where the demons were congregating and killed a few of them with that alone. Then, we finished the crowd, while the Shado-Pan were distracting other demons.
In the end, we confronted the shivarra Mazikeen as her spell failed and she blamed us for it. With the help of Shado-Pan and T’Paartos who came on behalf of Calaara, we dispatched the shivarra.
We brought her head to the grummle village to prove what they were worshipping and the village leader admitted to his wrong. He offered Pennywise the hand of one of his granddaughters for his help, but Pennywise refused on account of preferring men, which caused a lot of shock to the simple grummles.
Pennywise then left with the sethrak inquisitor Torque to hunt down the real Mazu.

Planet Aman’thul

MenrimOur boss’s latest project caused some consternation. After Jhuuton announced he found a way to the Titan Pantheon, we thought it would be something best to remain far away from. Alas, Verroak had to insist on actually going through it. He was giddy with anticipation of the things he could learn from the Titans. He was sure nothing could go wrong – that even if the Titans would prove hostile to us, we could just get away quickly and close the gate behind us and pray – his exact word – they do not follow. He was always possessed with the idea of gaining more knowledge but many of us thought knocking directly on the Pantheon’s doorstep was too dangerous. As it would turn out, all of us – those expecting the Titans to be hostile and those expecting them to be friendly – were proven wrong.

Worlds of the Nether: Svarloka

Yaksha-Karphat-100I am Karphat Preung, and I have the pleasure of introducing you to my world, Svarloka. I am very excited to represent Svarloka among a new group of arrivals. Since your people started appearing here a few months ago, many stories started crossing the Nether. Some say your world is “the First Ordering”. Some say it’s “the Last Light”, the final bastion standing against the Burning Legion. Well, when it comes to the latter legend, either that isn’t happening for centuries or someone failed to notice all of us here. And I wouldn’t be surprised if they did – if we can hide from the Burning Legion that well, we can hide from others. But do not fear, I see many opportunities for both our worlds – and for others as well. We are not as far apart as you might imagine.
