he fficial esearch (and uesting, nofficially) xpedition wants *YOU*!
We are about to embark on an epic, all-gnome, in-character run through the new leveling experience - featuring all of the best gnome-based content World of Warcraft has to offer - and we want you to join us.
That's right, we're going to roll new Gnomes and level from 1 to 110 as a group! This will be a RP event and should be quite friendly to new RPers! (I'm 100% new to RP, after all, and will be learning from the more experienced G4 members as we go).
The current plan is every
The first event will be January 27th.
Meet us in New Tinkertown with your freshly rolled gnome and be in character!
At it's core, this is a social event - we're not powerleveling, but 'looms are totally allowed. We'll be primarily focused on questing with some dungeons sprinkled in (we'll figure out the grouping for dungeons as we go).
We encourage our fellow gnomes to jump in, even if it's "late". At just ~2 hours every week, we're going to be taking this quite slow. If you didn't make the first (or first several) "episodes", don't feel that you can't catch up! We'll work you into the story! And the new level scaling should make catching up with us a breeze - just do a little leveling between each week's "official" event time and you'll be on-par in no time!
Already have an in-progress gnome? You can either join us early or watch our progress and jump in when we get near your level.
And most of all: absolutely no pressure. This is for fun - 100%. Can't stay the whole time? Only able to make it sporadically? Rather work on something with your main this week? No problem - lets work it into the story and just have fun with it.
Camaraderie, plain and simple. We've all been through the leveling experience (and/or the dungeoneering experience) dozens of times, but we haven't... er... Why are you looking at me like that? Oh! You meant "Why?" as in, "Why are a group of gnomes traveling the world? What's the impetus of our RP story?"
Well, the loose idea is that we're a group of scientists, engineers, researchers, and support staff that are working with Chromie to discover why certain subterranean caverns, a.k.a. "dungeons", are stuck in what appears to be infinite time loops - events playing out the same way over and over.
After cutting our teeth with some field work in New Tinkertown and the surrounding area, we'll be setting out in earnest - trying to puzzle out this temporal quandary whilst also seeking out gnomish populations from the Abyssal Depths to Zangarmarsh and offering our services.
Well, you, we hope! Come, join the T.O.R.Q.U.E Squad and together we'll spread the word of gnomish excellence far and wide across Azeroth and beyond!
