Flintheart Fireforge, Dwarf Hunter Beastmaster, engineer, archeologist, Mining guru.
3000 lbs hairy rhino, picked up in Northrend, during the frozen throne expansion. Known to have a mind of his own, and often ended up absorbing the contents of Flinthearts stomach due to a specific animation sequence and default location that grinder always ended up being when the dwarf decided to drink. Has been known to wander up a Specific death Hill in a specific dungeon, all by himself without telling anyone he was going there… Has cause many headaches for Flintheart.
One of two Spirit beasts picked up by Flintheart while mining in a part of northrend, these two followed him around for a while before he decided to make camp, and give them some food…. They have not left him since. This one’s name is Imagination….
The second of the two Spirit Beasts, Hallucination, Also follows the hunter, along with his sister, Imagination. Usually both in Stealth, so you never know if they are ever actually there. And considering the Dwarfs daily intake from his Pony keg, some might wonder if they exist at all…
Bluebell, was running around in outland, on a particular section you could only reach by flight. Braving the twisting nether, the hunter found her and befriended her. Just note, When she gets mad, She will let out the Loudest screech you have ever heard, for miles around….. Not one you want to take with you while trying to sneak by anything.
One of Flinthearts first pets, has been with him from the beginning of time… since the dwarf seems to be older than dirt… Lucas has been a good companion over the years.
Marcus, has also been one of the earliest to join the hunter in exploring azeroth and beyond. has been known to be the loser to many hide and seek game with Imagination and Hallucination, when they get together….
April 13 2020, Under house arrest…..
Welcome to The Grinder news network, where everyday turns into Azeroth daily. This is Flintheart, your guide in the daily life of this hunter and his pets. with daily updates as to the life in the kingdoms.
Today I decided to take grinder with me to the stormwind navy credit union… which for some reason they were making sure everyone was 6 feet away from me and grinder… and not for the normal reasons. Grinder had his bath for the week prior to visiting. I guess there is some kind of illness going around, that is keeping everyone off the streets. As there was no line, and driving around the streets, there was no traffic.
After we hit the bank, we went to a local restaurant to get some food. I was told I could not sit inside, again for some strange reason… it was surely not because of the smell of the rhino… I had to order my meal “to-go”? ah well, they were nice enough to give me a drink to sit on the patio while I waited for my order. Some fruity drink with salt on the rim. I was the only one there ordering, so I guess they slipped more booze in it than normal. Lucky for grinder, he did not get a taste of it. not sure he would have liked it… and I have to wait for the murlocks to recover before i can take him to get bathed again…
I got my food, then headed out, forgetting to get a drink for the road, to I decided to go to one of those ride-thru places for something that wont keep me from driving straight. One place that served lots of chicken but tends to close one day at the start of the week, They were open. sort of, their sign saying they were preparing to open an hour later than it was at the time I got there, other adventurers rode past the pointy orange things, to see if they could still order, only to be told they had to wait for another hour…. I left that place and went to Jack’s box, knowing he could fill my order quickly. Then made my way home with my food…. I was besieged by Imagination, Hallucination, and Marcus, once I walked into the door, Bluebell could care less that i returned…. I think she is molting…. or just giving me attitude.
After eating, Well trying to…. the cats all wanted to be pet while I was eating… and I think hallucination got into my chips…. they seemed to keep disappearing…. But I had been told by my boss, that I had to stay home…. but I don’t think it was because of grinder causing trouble, Because apparently a curse had been placed over the land, and it was wide spreading. To reduce those affected by this curse, they have send messengers throughout the kingdom to keep everyone home as much as possible, to reduce exposure. Making sure I had my pants up, before going out, I figured I would be ok to take care of some business today. But for the most part, I have been working Via Crystal…. updating the timing of all of my sites. it’s really weird working with this “keys-board” to do what I normally would have to do with all my tools.
But since no one was showing up to my sites, as they had been closed because of the curse. and the witchdoctors and warlock are unsure of the lasting effects of this curse. some have recovered, and what was supposed to be two weeks, has quick become two months. I only hope the rest of my guild is ok, I have not heard from many of them. I have been keeping myself dru…. I mean busy. We lost the lake two weeks ago,,,, it got filled in by a mudslide, now no water gathers there. It flooded two nights ago, when the winds got angry, we had to watch for them, to make sure they did not come close to the house. the flooding was not too bad, but if I know anything about foundations,,,, this cant be good for this house…. the tab it sits on, may not like the water that much… if it decides to sink into the mud, I will be climbing out of this place
Although grinder did get a good shower that night, and even a blow dry from the winds…. which is why I did not think people were avoiding him for the Normal Vomit covered reason they normally avoid him.
Aside from ordering food and other activities from the Amazon jungle, which I think are costing me more than it should to normally get the same items, the local CO of Cost, was missing many item they normally keep week stocked. Lucky for me I stocked up on my backside cloth before all this hit.
