It’s not why you think!
- It’s not to remove the dishonor of its occupation by filthy Troggs.
- It’s not to save our poor leprous cousins.
- It’s not to save the environment by stopping the seepage of radioactive wastes through the sewers of Azeroth.
The Goblins are not the only small race to be subjugated by oppressors!
We’re being Repressed, We’re being Repressed!
It’s because of the Dwarves, and to some extent those upstart humans are oppressors through supposed friendship!
Have you ever had that situation where while you smoke your Fitzgadget’s smokeless, tobacco-less, cancer-less pipe while rocking your stone chair on the front porch of your Ironforge abode that it occurs to that the Dwarves aren’t really as helpful a bunch as the make out?
You have probably had similar experiences in RL, where that friend, colleague or family member makes a slip and you discover that their intentions aren’t all that holy.
They’ll follow it up with one of those statements…
Gnomes, I love Gnomes, some of… Err one of my best mates is a Gnome… Sure I haven’t spoken to him in years, but if I did, I would assure you he was my friend.
Have you ever noticed how we are relegated to one little street corner in Ironforge… One place to set up our 7/11 of tinker tools?
Have you ever noticed how we are tarnished with the Engineering brush…
Ohh yeah those Gnomes, they’re all engineered, that’s all they’re good for.
Even in Stormwind we live in squalor, in the dirtiest part of town, right at the back corner.
Have you ever notices how Old Town virtually smells of roses in comparison to our filth refugee camp?
But Gnomer, what would you have the Dwarves do?
We for starters they have whole uninhabited part of Ironforge that would have made the Gnomes feel right at home.
Yep, why didn’t they give us the keys to the “undercity”. Sure the Dwarves couldn’t make it pretty, but give 1/2 a dozen Gnomes a chance and Old Ironforge would have come up a treat.
The Gnomes would have put in:
- Central heating and cooling
- Fast and efficient mail delivery systems
- Transport systems
- Luxury stainless steel accommodation suites for Dwarven holidays.
I dare say that the Dwarves and Humans have been receiving some sort of Alliance Refugee Assistance Payments, keeping it for themselves to fund their exploration and war efforts while the Gnomes sleep rough on the streets and get relegated to corner shop owners.
I bet Tirion Fartface didn’t fund the Argent tournament… I bet it was the relief supplies that he sold on the neutral auction house via those dastardly Goblins. He probably used our blankets to make the tents!
No we don’t need to reclaim Gnomeregan to right the wrongs of the past. We need to retake Gnomeregan to escape the injustices of the present!
Rise up fellow Gnomes!
Raid your oppressors storerooms.
Take their picks and shovels now.
You can be assured that the only reason they will join forces with us to retake Gnomeregan is to pillage out rightful homeland!
Be sure to strip them of all our prized Gnomeregan artifacts before they leave your party… For rest assured, they will just trade them on the Goblin Markets!
Gnomer and Out!
