Just so you're aware...a complete set comes with poutine. Which you *have* to eat.

Hi everyone!

Background stuffs i'm married (met wife Hordeside on wow in late 2006) Prior to meeting her i started playing in early 2005 and was Alliance for about a year before going Hordeside. 10 years later i'm back to blue...purple! Once i heard Gnome Hunter's were going to be a thing i convinced my wife (She plays a Hunter too) it was time to move over :P

We originally are from Twisting Nether RPPvP but during early CATA the RP community started to collapse and we decided to move on. We heard WrA was the best for an evenly split (faction) server with both vibrant RP communities so decided to take the jump! After being here fora few years we are glad we did!

My main is a recently transferred lvl100 MM Undead now Survival Gnome Hunter!

I have a farming alt i'm going to try to move over sometime in the future. I usually love playing ranged DPS (Exp with Boomies, Shadow Priest, Warlock, and Shammies) but get that melee itch from time to time (used to main all of the above plus Rogue & Monk). But i always came back to rerolling a hunter after 6 months or so of playing each class to max lvl. Finally have settled on Hunter now that they have melee and ranged!

No real Raid exp other than LFR. The guild my wife and i met on was RP / PvP. After out guild died in 09 we have just played solo together in a guild of just the two of us ever since so this is my first exp being back ina big guild in many years!

I play mostly in the morning and daytime (I have YEARS of old quests to do now Hooray!). Evening and night my playtime is sporadic but hoping to be on more in the evenings for guild stuff! My wife is planning to transfer and apply sometime in the future (her playtime is very limited atm).

Thanks for the welcome into the family and i hope to meet and run around with all of ya'll!

Hello fellow Gnomies!

Just joined today and am VERY excited to be part of a vibrant, friendly, positive group of individuals.

My name is Leo, 28 years old, half Japanese/Taiwanese, born and raised in Vancouver, B.C., CANADA! I have 2 degrees; my first in Life Sciences and my second (most recent this year in April) in Nursing. I am currently studying to write my license exam in a few weeks!

I started playing WoW in 2007 with BC casually with some friends. My first toon was (surprise, surprise!) a gnome rogue on Stonemaul. I started getting more serious with WoW in WotLK when Ulduar was released, and moved to Proudmoore as they had one of the biggest Japanese raiding guild at the time (GoW - Guild of Wasabi). I have been playing a holy BE paladin up until Cata (when they introduced the new talent system). I stayed on Proudmoore and moved to alliance when GoW died off with players moving on to different games or simply lost interest in WoW entirely. I joined and still have toons in another Japanese guild on Proudmoore (Harapeko Soul) where I developed my interest and enthusiasm for gnomes! I have a WW gnome monk where I PvP'd and PvE'd competitively throughout MoP.

I wanted to change servers and find a very social and tight-knit guild. It is difficult to stay in touch with my guild due to the time difference in Japan and here in Canada (but also the fact that since I do not raid competitively anymore, I don't feel like I belong in that guild anymore...the competitive atmosphere drove my interest away). Now I play casually, focusing more on random BGs, transmog (a big bulk of my time on WoW), and trying to find people to socialize with - be it through old raid contents, dungeons, BGs, arenas, etc. RP is something that I have never done before but intrigues me regarding the social and creativity aspect that it comes with! I hope to learn much more from every member here to expand my knowledge on the superior gnomes, and look forward to creating new memories and experiences with G4!


Other games I've played: Asheron's Call (my first MMO), DAoC, Quake 2 - Expert CTF, CS, D2 + D2:LoD, D3, Pokemon Go.

I'm also a fitness enthusiast, emphasizing on calisthenics and sports performance training. I dance (breakin' and locking) and also love to boulder!



Here's a giant picture of my face.




...And here's me bouldering.




See you in game! (My main on WRA is Cragstone)

Hi Everyone,

This is Khoria and I'm sitting at work waiting for the traffic to die down so I can get home where the servers are also down soon for the patch and therefore, I will be forced to interact with my family <joke>. I thought I could do my own intro and I'll try and make it interesting if I can.

So I'm a gnome. I've been a gnome since Vanilla ever since my hunter angered the tank in a dungeon by taking aggro 'helpfully' which led to a 10 year friendship, a new gnome warrior (Khoria), and an understanding of the word 'tank' in WoW :) Since that moment, I have played almost exclusively gnomes, filling in the class gaps as necessary with other races, but it's gnomes all the way.

My gnomes have hitherto resided on the EU servers since I live in the UK. However, like Cragstone, I'm half-Japanese (other half is white-American-Scotch-Irish-Jewish-from-NY) and also like Cragstone, I'm "from" B.C. Canada and was raised in Vancouver -> Victoria -> Vancouver ... and onwards to the rest of the world. I say "from" because I was born in Seattle, WA but I haven't lived in the States much, just when I was a baby and a little later in California.

I have:

- 8 gnomes at level 100 EU side
- hours and hours of WoW playing
- been a guild leader in WoW, in Earth and Beyond and played Star wars Galaxies
- lived on an RP server in WoW
- lived on an RPPvP server in WoW
- lived on a normal server in WoW (yuck)
- lived in RL in Canada, California, Switzerland (Geneva), Luxembourg, UK (Leeds)
- raided heroic Dragon Soul (endlessly as well as many other raids since Karazhan came out)
- 'retired' from raiding (ha)
- fished many many many fish (in WoW and RL actually (Canadian - it happens)).
- farmed many things
- played too much WoW
- 3 citizenships (US, Canada, UK)
- 3 children (1 daughter, 1 son, 1 genetically-female but self-declared genderless)
- 1 step-child (daughter)
- 1 husband
- 1 ex-husband
- 4 immediate family members who play WoW (all gnomes except ONE doesn't like them !!!!)
- 2 immediate family members who play Overwatch
- reached level 50 in RL levels :)
- a job writing C# production code for a cool healthcare software company in the UK
- been programming since I was 13
- taught myself how to code since I was 13 and am still learning
- high blood pressure
- type II diabetes
- 2 bright but grown-up children with Aspergers (one heading to university in fall, one barely coping as is tired all the time but is probably something else)
- a need to lose weight!
- a messy house

And a huge desire to be useful to my guildies and hope I can fit in and play as much as possible despite the time-difference!

I'm looking to level up a set of 8 gnomes with all professions again and 'recover' all my pets, mounts and achievements that don't transfer over from the EU because of the regional battlenet shared thing (not shared across regions). I will be very sad to lose my baby blizzard bear but the gaining of so many like minded people in my life is surely worth it!

See you in game,
Khoria (also known as Darwhyn)

Wow another Canadian Gnomie. Welcome Cragstone! I've lost count but i know we have a fair few now. And that rock climbing thing looks like fun but my days of scaling things are behind me. I used to do a bit of backpacking in the sierras when I was your age. Alas that was back before the internet became The Next Big Thing, so all my photographs are 35mm slides stacked up in little yellow boxes. One of these days I should look into an affordable/convenient method of getting them digitized.

And dont worry Cyna, we have a lot of refugees from Red Side, and a lot who play both sides at once, so youre in good company. I played a Blood Elf through all of Burning Crusade. But I find I'm not really comfortable playing on the "Bad Boy" side. Too much of the hero in me.

Welcome to both of you!

Figured it was probably time I introduced myself. I am a native Californian but only 1st generation. However, I'm very interested in the local history and preserving information on the California Pioneers. Which means I spend a lot of time in cemeteries, much to the dismay of my husband (Primist). I'm also an avid crocheter and quilter.

WoW is my first MMO and I've been playing since Vanilla. I've played primarily on RP servers. It's Forbs and Dyna's fault I joined G4. Saw Forbs' tweets and Dyna's comics and thought this has to be a great place! So, I rolled Mynday on WRa and joined G4. And it is a great place with great people! This server has some of the richest RP events in the game. There is always something going on.

I am an Altoholic and truly believe a Main requires a village. :D After 37 years, I retired from AT&T. I thought it would give me more time, but it hasn't. I'm still always under the gun for something. :P But when I hit RL level 60 next year, I get flying, right?

I am owned by two cats (Maxamus and Myndy). They're named after our mains on Kirin Tor. They were found on the street at 4 weeks old. No idea what happened to their mother. And I don't want to know.

That's about it. Thanks for reading. :)

Hey Everyone!

My name is Kara and I'm a 35 year old, software engineer, geek girl. I currently live in Seattle, WA and love it. I spent 10 years in the game industry at EA Sports and am currently taking a break form that industry and working as a software engineer for Amazon.com. I'm a huge technology buff and maker of all sorts of things, from props, to jewelry, to purses, and sometimes soldering for the fun of it. I have 3 pets, my cat Enoch, pictured below, and my two Chihuahuas, Luna and Chianna. (My molten corgi is named after them, Chuna!) Here are some pictures cause I suck at written text that isn't code.

My computer rig and Enoch!


My Dogs (and Enoch again)!


Me!

Hi, all!

So, my name is Jerry (most of my toons' names start with "Jer"), early 40s, live in IL about an hour south of Chicago, and have been gaming since I was about 9 and my dad brought home an Atari 2600. I was a console gamer until I took a year off from gaming all together and then built a PC for the first time in early 2014. I was a pretty hardcore SWTOR player until that game started going in a direction I didn't like. I had played WoW a little but never really could get into it. On the last day my sub was to be active a friend told me he might be getting back into the game but him and his friends played Alliance only. I made an Allied toon, got to Stormwind for the first time, and fell in love with the game and have been devouring as much Blizzard/Azeroth history as I can ever since; I dropped SWTOR completely and have been playing WoW full-time since Dec of '15.

Other than games I really love films, traveling, and baseball (Go CUBS, the 2016 World Series Champions :D!)

Hello fellow gnomes!! My name is Matt, but my main's name is Hyrcules. I have just joined the guild as of last Friday so you may have already seen me around a bit but I wanted to introduce myself :)

My WoW background: Started playing in 2007 right when TBC came out. Used to be a heavy raider back in the TBC days on my feral druid, but eventually started rolling gnome alts for more casual play and fell in love with them. Hyrcules is a fury warrior, but I have about 6 other gnomes as well. These days real life takes it's toll but when I have time I either level up alts or do casual raids LFR or Normal groups.

Non-WoW gaming: I play a lot of Overwatch, and occasionally some SC2 and HS. Other than Blizzard, I'm a huge fan of the Battlefield series games (favorites BF2 and BF3) and Star Wars Battlefront (the new DICE one).

Quick RL background: I'm 30 years old and work in mobile web development in the Bay Area. When I'm not working or playing games I'm often out on my motorcycle which is my other favorite hobby after blizzard games. I've gone to BlizzCon the last three years, two of those times riding my bike all the way down, it's a great road trip!

Hope to see you guys in game!

Awesome! I play a bit of Overwatch myself but cant claim to be particularly good at it. At least I can be counted upon to move the payload. =)

Hello fellow gnomes! My name is Holly. I'm somewhat new to WoW, and never considered myself a serious gamer. I use to mainly play Pokemon and Sims. That is til my husband introduced me to the world of Azeroth, and I've come to love the game. I especially enjoy the array of good stories that it has. In the real world, I'm a wife and mother who walks a bit on the goth side.

Thanks for letting me join such an awesome group.

Hello my vertically challenged friends!!! My name is Craig and I am an old school WoW player from the Beta Stages... Yes I played Vanilla but mainly played Horde on Scarlet Crusade... I was the main tank in a raiding guild called The Impalers... You can see us assisting with the Opening of AQ on SC server... I loved to PVP and held the High Warlord rank on my old account for 2 months... I played hard core up to WoD then took a break just after... I am now playing Alliance and wanted to take an easier more relaxed approach to the game, so I made this gnome warrior and wanted to join a RP Guild... so what better option is to join a ALL GNOME GUILD!!!! Which I think is awesome... I also ran a Ever Quest 1 guild on Prexus back in the day called Clockwork Collective, which was an all gnome guild... I am happy to be part of this guild and look forward to tanking for you people and pvping with you people as well... I am just waiting on Forbes to guild tag me as I was literally running out the door to Disney for a vacation with the family when I finally was able to chat with her... So hopefully the interview goes well and you will see me in guild chat!!! Have a super awesome day!!!
Give it to me... I'll fix it!!!
