The Ghosts of Darmoon Island

Alright, so I stated that I would post an introduction... but first I had to get this discovery of mine out first...

While traveling through the woods of Darkmoon Island, one may come upon these mysterious sparkling areas that move around.

Well, if you die and wander around the island, you'll find out that those sparkles are actually ghosts! In total I have found six.

The first I found on the West side of the island, and is a human male named Brenden Paulson.
What he says:
"I ran away from my home in Strom after my father tried to kill me."
"I remember telling Silas, "I never want to see my family again."
"For most of my life the faire has been my home."
"I joined the faire as a child..."
"My life before the faire was hard. I never missed it, or my family."
"I joined the faire to escape my family."

The second I found on the east side of the island, and she is a blood elf female named Sithera Wellspun.
What she says:
"When I woke up, I couldn't find my way back to the campsite..."
"I was supposed to get fireword for the campsite..." Yes, the typo is actually in the game.
"I have such a hard time gathering firewood..."
"I though I saw something in the bushes nearby...Then I suppose I blacked out."

After finding the first two, I covered every part of the island I could. I eventually stumbled upon a female Tauren named Arlon Surehoof.
What she says:
"These woods are dangerous. A lesson I learned the hard way."
"I am to keep a close watch over the camp."
"I don't know how long I've been watching over the camp..."
"Even death will not keep me from my duty to watch over the camp..."

After Arlon, I found a male Goblin named Kupp Coincare.
What he says:
"My debt was almost repaid. No one was going to miss those last gold coins..."
"I didn't think anyone would mind if I didn't stay to help runt he faire."
"Most of my debt was repaid... I think..."
"Silas was able to repay most of my debt as long as I worked at the faire."

Then I bumped into a male Troll named Zazla.
What he says:
"I barely survived the shipwreck..."
"Silas kept me safe from my previous captors..."
"I saw my captors die horrible deaths. And I laughed."
"The faire kept me from an execution. It saved my life."

Finally, I found a second male human, which I did not expect, named Franklin Jenner.
What he says:
"So many have died at my hands. I just wanted to escape those horrors."
"I was promised I would never have to encounter the horrors of war at the faire."
"The war against the orcs, there seems to be no respite."

Ghost Locations:
Note: Tazla = Zazla. I spaced out.

Now, what's REALLY interesting...

If you go to a certain area, you'll find a tree with a bunch of cages around it. Inside each cage is one skeleton. 5 cages hang in the tree, and one sits at the base of the tree. 6 cages, 6 ghosts. Coincidence?

And then there's that cannibalistic vendor not too far away...

So, very interesting! I will definitely have some trouble sleeping tonight (I am the type of person that cannot watch horror movies, even Shawn of the Dead freaks me out to no end).
For more cool information, check out this thread on Petopia! The community there has information on some well-know NPCs that show up, all the animals at the zoo, and some fun discoveries such as a underwater cave!

A New Adventure

I've never really blogged before. I've wanted to but I haven't really known what to blog about. I've read some of my friends World of Warcraft blogs and have decided to base a blog around WoW as well. Right now though, it is rather late and I have classes tomorrow, so you'll either see a proper introduction tomorrow or in a bit from my iPhone. Pretty excited about this and I hope that I can stick with it. I always have so much to say about World of Wacraft (I'll put in bluntly: I'm addicted to this game) but I never really write/type down what's in my mind unless I bring it up in a conversation.
Anyway, must head to bed (and not fall asleep for at least two more hours, huzzah), here's hoping I keep updating!
