Juuno’s delightful adventures

Hello Ctrl Alt Wow darlings!!  I've been running super busy the last two weeks with making costumes and baking yummy Halloween treats, I'm so sorry I didn't have time to do an email or audio last week, and though I don't have time to get an audio in this week either, I just saw the time and hopped on the computer real fast to say hello!  I'm working on a zombie make-up for a party tonight right now!!  hehehe
I hope that you're all having a GREAT October and going to a party too!  Be safe and have lots and lots of FUN, even if it's just in Azeroth!  
I did get some time in the game here or there...I was super happy to find out that the Hallow's End events are very quick & easy, so I've been popping in when I can to get them done and kill the Headless Horseman... (still no mount, lol)  I LOVE having jack-o-lanterns all over my garrison and am never going to take them down!!!  hehehe
Okay, the liquid latex on my face is drying so I better go apply some more... I love you guys & gals!!

/great big spooky hugs & kisses!  *muah*
For the Horde, for the Alliance and for Hallow's End forevahhhhh!!!

From Alisaunder.
Hello everyone.
This week the Real Life Boss has been pwning my time in WoW.
I grabbed the three new ghostly pets from Hallows Eve and helped some friends work on Raiding With Leashes. Unfortunately the raid on the auction house produced more results than any of the dungeons we tried.
Only had time to run one Onyxia and Four Winds and almost no pet battles.
Most of the time that I did have was spent on garrison tables and researching the Lore Tour of Ulduar that I ran Wednesday evening. One of the best raids ever, the architecture is so good.
It was fun to talk about the Titans, the Old Gods, the Loken and Thorim storylines elsewhere in Stormpeaks and finish up with saving the world with Ronin and Bran in Dalaran.
Raise your eyes to the skies ladies and observe...
BlizzCon is coming.
Have a great virtual ticket!

Greetings CAW Crew & Happy Halloween!

Sorry for the lack of audio effects for the past few weeks. This being your episode nearest to Halloween, i thought i'd make it up to you, which is attached.

Also, for your viewing pleasure, i did this bizarre odd Halloween video which was meant to be a bit scary. Anyway, i made this in 2011 and it's not publicly posted on Youtube but hope you enjoy it.

and finally,  below is a picture of one of my best pumpkin carvings from last year.


For the Horde,
For the Alliance,
For being back in Clan of Darkness!



So mum came for a visit this week it was good to see her and lifted my spirits I been depressed the last few weeks and her visit help realign my head. Basically I been suppressing the more violent side of my personality and after a long talk and a couple of days thinking I came to understand my head space. Basicly I am a person that deals with stress by seeking a pound of flesh when I can't claim said pound of flesh be it physical or meta physical I basicly start mentally digging at my body like a ice addict chasing bugs. Now I know what to look out for I can channel that into violent games and or a possible gym membership so I can physically beat up a punching bag. Now onto my gaming this week as it has been limited by mum coming to say hi I managed to get half a lvl on postmortem hopefully this time next week I will hit lvl 60 then 90. Played some hearthstone tavern brawl oh why did it have to be spiders this week some must have escaped Juunos garrison won a couple of games and opened my free pack. Played so HoTs and managed to crawl over the 10k gold mark and buy johana yay for the 50% bonus xp week and I also got the latest assassins creed game but have yet to play it. So that's been about it for my week still working 6 day weeks so yer the money shall be nice and who really needs days off to relax in.

So for the Horde

For the alliance

For the Sandgrophers

And for haveing the time and effort to record next week

(From Tiber)    
Hello Aprillian, Leetah, Rogueslayer, and Tedrah
I've never thought about writing anything poetic since they stopped making me do it in school.  Juuno's epic reading of  The Sleeper by Edgar Allan Poe ( ) inspired me to send in a submission for Sumduud's contest.  My apologies to Junno, the ghost of Edgar Allan Poe, and anybody else that might be affected.


Greetings and salutations C.A.W. crew.

Been a while since I've checked in with you guys, but I wanted to wait until I had more to say than "I logged on, did dailies and logged off"

That brings me to the subject of the my email. I was perfectly content to pop on to the game for a few minutes, do some garrison management and log off and play some PS4 or catch up on my Netflix queue. Would have worked until Legion came out, but somehow Leeta's brand of insanity has somehow become contagious. Stuff that would normally turn my brain into jelly just doesn't seem so bad when Leeta talks about them. Hours of murdering mobs on Timeless Isle? Sure! Not all your pets are level 25 AND rare quality? ZOMG I better fix that! Obscure faction that you're not exalted with. Where do i sign?!? Only a scrub has less than 15K achievement points! Oh no! I don't wanna be a scrub. The only bit of madness that I can't blame on Leeta is this whole iron man challenge mess that Rougueslayer champions. Curse her and her completely enthralling stories... Why oh why you guys hate me so? I write emails (a whole 4 this year) and I even say "Hi" in guild chat. What more do you want of me?

The only good news I have to report is that I have so far been able to resist April's multi-boxing temptation, but I don't know how much longer I can last. Oh Lords of Azeroth save me.

So, in short, I've been farming mounts, pets, toys, achievements and started an iron man toon while having a blast. Thanks for the ideas folks!

As always, have a good show and I'll catch yall in Azeroth

A Week With NO Deaths
‘Cause ya gotta play to die !

Death Scar Screen Shots
Notice the name of my turtle !

Below is why Aprillian was yelling at me to run at the beginning of the cast !!! But I got the shot !



Gnome run sat

Hail CAW Crew,

Lately I have found myself procrastinating about finishing up Tanaan Jungle, so I have been leveling all my 90's up to max level. Thirteen down, and five to go.  I have been keeping up with some of the holiday events, enough to get the new pets and toys that have become available.  I finally got a Nightshade Sproutling to drop for me from the garrison herb garden. Still working on the sack of spiders toy.

I would like to encourage anyone who is free to join the Gnome run for cancer awareness on Sat the 24th on the Scarlet Crusade Server. I have attached a picture of my little pink haired rogue, Orchidae, that I wil take on the run.  November 2nd will mark the first anniversary of my mother's death from cancer.  My two older sisters are both breast cancer survivors.  So this is a cause that is very close to my life.  Please come and show your support.  The details of the run are posted in last show's notes.

For the Gnomes (just this once),

You get a Terky and You get a Terky everbody gets a Terky

So I suspect i am the last person in game to get this cute lil female Murlock So here's my audio

My week in WoW. Long and not cheery.
From Alisaunder,  
Hello Ladies,
This is long and not a very happy email so you can skip to the last paragraph if you prefer. I wouldn't read it either. 😐
I saw a question on Realm Maintenance about what they want to hear at BlizzCon and it stuck a nerve.
After wrath I was extremely concerned about if i would like Cataclysm and turned out I was right. I wasn't sure about Pandaria with what we knew and was mostly right there too but it was a pleasant place so turned out to be the rest I needed to heal my wounds.
Legion I thought would be pretty great, my hopes were way high and overall it's been good up until the end game. I love my beautiful Alliance garrison and only regret that it was never made into a Guild garrison.  
And now there is Legion, and I just don't know. And that is what I want to know.
There was so much potential in Legion and an epic story so good they wanted to do it again, but the game we got was in many respects, not the game for players like me who enjoy crafting, farming herbs and ore in a lovely area.
A respite from what was a rough year.
A vacation land.
Not my second job.
I've been pouring my heart out for months now to podcast after podcast because I have no one else. Blizzard has walled themselves off and none of my RL friends play anymore.
I feel like a relationship is failing. A marriage or whatever, not with a bang but silence and disinterest as they pursue raiders or younger players or, I don't know.
I tend to play other games now, but I got my Terky pet ( Squee! ), ran the Circuit of Optimism for a while, got Exalted with two more factions ( and their pets and mounts ), farmed the Sapphire Cub Design for a friend and handed out baby blue kittens to bunches of friends, and you know, I was happy.

Rigarmorty Audio
Greetings CAW Crew!
So it's been another hectic busy work week and i had my R&R but no Wow sadly. Fingers crossed i'll get back on next week either EU or US side, depending.
For the Horde,
For the Alliance,
Rigarmorty x
