Phat Loot Phriday: Iron Boot Flask


When we last left our heroes, Throgg was complaining about Garrosh, essentially proving his membership in the Horde ... or, alternatively, proving his membership in the Alliance. Hatred of Garrosh is a unifying force in Azeroth, similar to love of Legos in the real world.

The four rode into Tirisfal without much fanfare. Lolegolas was careful to guide the party away from the dirt road, staying out of sight from the undead guards who stalked the kingdom's highway. Throgg grew increasingly quiet.

"I've not smelled Abercrombie," the Gilnean said quietly. "Not a whiff of a food court, Hot Topic, or Cinnabon within miles."

Miranda stared at the druid hard for a moment. "You stealing my gig, Spot?"

"My name is not Spot," the Gilnean replied absently. "We'll have to go into Undercity beneath Lordaeron." He frowned, and his jaw clenched. "Hate that place."

Lolegolas clapped the Gilnean on the shoulder, speaking quietly. "If it helps at all, we do, too. No one likes reminders of bad days."

"This is very touching, but let's keep to business. We'll need to take the sewer exit in," Miranda said. "We could maybe hitch a ride with one of the inevitable Alliance raids, but I think we're better off sneaking in. Ride flying mounts to stick near to the ceiling, maybe, until we get close to Sylvanas."

"And then we all die horribly?" Lolegolas said. "We can accomplish that plan anywhere, we don't have to go into Undercity to do it."

Miranda reached under her jacket and produced a small Iron Boot Flask.

"Miranda!" Throgg exclaimed suddenly. "You are too young to be carrying around alcohol."

The young woman peered at Throgg, narrowing her eyes. "Did you really just say that? Do you have any basis to guess how young or old a human female is?"

"Well, no," Throgg said. He kicked the ground abashedly. "But it felt appropriate."

"Anyway, it's not like that," Miranda continued. "It's a potion. We'll go disguised as Iron Dwarves."

"I'm ... not sure I see how that will help," Lolegolas said slowly. "It's not like Sylvanas has a secret treaty with Iron Dwarves or something."

Miranda sighed. "No. But it's a common thing for both factions to do. We all like being Iron Dwarves. So, people in the Undercity will see us and assume we're just Horde in a costume instead of Alliance in costume."

"Uh. Little elf and I will be Horde in costume," Throgg pointed out.

"Just go with it," Miranda sighed.
