Belated update

Been performing the odd things around the place recently.
I've managed to learn how to pick locks. Not that I have found an active use for it yet. I've also learnt a trick that incapacitates dudes, this has become very handy to collect those items that are guarded.
I have found a whole bunch of carcases that some mad woman will reward me for handing over, but they are always swarmed by murlocks. I need someone to scare them away, it's so frustrating.
The tree that was blocking the path north of Eastern Plaguelands seems to have been cleared. There is a vast wondrous land there for be to explore.

On a side note, I received mail from another noncombatant. It is nice to know I'm not the only person who has the right attitude to life.

The life of the adventurer

A strange cult cropped up all over Azeroth, building everlasting bonfires that burn non-standard colours. They asked me to get burnt all over the place.
Some of the places they set up their fires are damn remote. The creatures I had to avoid in Azshara were savage and numerous.

This did encourage me to traverse almost all of Azeroth.

From all the hardship I went through I was granted some flamey clothes and a summonable death machine (something called a Cinder Elemental). Why would they give me something that just goes on a killing spree? Do they not know me at all? I foolishly thought it was a cute little pet that would just follow me around for a bit, but no, it started killing everything in sight.

A busy day

I read somewhere that some ship had crashed on a forgotten island off the north cost of Kalimdor.

On investigating, I found several people who were willing to pay to have all manner of things collected/recovered from around this island.

The most interested experience was a tormented furbold who guided me on an astounding tour of the island. S/He cast some extremely usefull spells on my person in order to assist me (I wonder if the postal service has access to these abilities). These consisted of a mild form of flight (more like controlled falling), high speed underwater swimming. The most surreal of all was a transformation into something that resembles a panther and a temporary shifted into an alternate plane of existence. This enabled me to move about the land without any interruption from any interlopers, but my vision was like I was tripping on some unstable hallucinogenic drug. Pitty it only lasted 3 minutes.

I really wished skills like pickpocketing allowed me to obtain inconsequential items like generic keys and not just cash and random junk. I would deeply like to free various trapped victims, but the damn captors will only relieve they grasp on the keys upon death.

The local trainer taught me a new ability, this is meant to allow me to stun an opponent for a few seconds. This seemed like a perfect solution to acquiring some items in the Ban'ethil Barrow Den. Unfortunately I can only put one person to sleep at a time, the nasty side effect of this action is that I become visible again, consequently everything else in the immediate vicinity starts pounding on my helpless body. Oh well. I'll try again some other time.

Self degradation

Last week I met this little boy in the Stormwind orphanage, Jesper. He asked me to go fetch him some sweets from various people round the place, since he's not allowed to leave the orphanage.

I thought this would be an easy job, which it was, just the things these bastards made me do. They had no problem with giving me the sweets in question, just as long as a prance around in front of them like some demented prat. Never before have I been required to parade myself in public so ashamedly just for a piece of sugar, that I don't even get to eat myself.

Once I degraded myself to these respectable members of society, Jesper was kind enough to reward me with some weird transformational matrix thingy. Every time I use it, I transform into something horrible, though it doesn't seem to scare people away.

Progress so far

Over the past year and a bit of the odd adventuring, I have managed to venture over most of this strange land.
On occasion people wish to have various objects passed to an acquaintance (these people are too slack to use the postal system, lucky me), some times they wish an item to be retrieved (more often than not these items are guarded by unpleasant people). Frequently they give me lots of money for this simple roll. I've even been asked to drag some poor child all over the place, little blighter was so eager to see the outside world (I'd hate to be cooped up in an orphanage as well).

I've been making a small amount of money from selling the rocks I've been digging up from around the place (people are strange). Flowers seem to be in demand as well. It feels bad to deprive the plant of it reproductive system, but I come back after a few hours and the plant seems to have grown more, so I must be pruning it the right way.

The beginning

I was born into this strange world that is obsessed with the continual pursuit of violence towards almost everything around us shortly after the world was created and decided that this is wrong.

There must be a better way to live one's life other than constantly killing, so I have thrown away my weapons and seek live a life in harmony with the world, even if it does not wish to live in harmony with me.

I decided to make a pact that I will adventure without causing any harm to any living creature and no harm to any creature is allowed to be dealt in my defence. This has become quite a challenge as the world seems to be geared towards causing damage to others in one way or another.
