Brewfest and Harvest Festival 2018

Harvest Festival
Quick and easy.  Honor Luther, get a book to read, get a crystal to colour your character x3. 

Brewfest
Horrible Ram Racing Games for tokens.
Daily Iron Dwarves for 10 tokens and Coren Direbrew [one time reward of 40 tokens and a daily chance for a mount or the Direbrew Remote] battles for tokens.
Note: It was Katui's Direbrew Remote that took us to the bar to get drunk, watch the band and start a bar brawl for Mother's Day 2014. --giggle--

I Need tokens for:

200 - Brewfest Regalia [to get drunk and dance in Darnassus for achievement for Brewfest Title]

200 for Brew of the Month Club [for achievement for Brewfest Title]

200 for pet Stout Alemental which looks like the Pandaren Elemental pets and is very cool.  Goal #2 for 2018 after I get the Title.

200 for Mount Swift Keg Pony.

100 for a Brewfest Pony Keg which lets you drink year round and is a better deal than the pony below.

200 for Brewfest Keg Pony. A toy that can be used year round.

Vier Obituary

Vier Memorial 26 August 2018
I didn't get any screenshots of Vier's Square whilst we went crazy with our toys.

I did make sure to put down a Train and a Train Wrecker - those are for you, my darling daughter.

Bearminimum, Mierlin and I went crazy with our throwing toys, then progressed to our noise-making toys and finished with our character transformation toys.  Vier's toy mania was well represented!

We headed outside and showed off our mounts, we even had a random stranger join in for a while.  Bear was the only one of us with a Fey Dragon, Vier's Fave, so we watched the colour-morph for awhile in her honour.
Fiery Dragons

Purple Birds

Purple Tigers

Scary Vicious Wolves!

Mount Lust! - Bear has a Rat mount from Legion Fishing!  Must. Have. One.!

Darkmoon Feast - Fancy Clothes!

All Girls - 2 Space Goats and one Nelf

Shiny! - I had one --something-- to make our Nelf sparkly.  I wonder what it was, need more!

Sandbox Tiger from the Faire and Multiple Mierlins - plus a sparkly Bonestorm!

Spectral Wolves, one dancing, A Beer Keg, Blue and Green Stuffed Dolls, a cushion, a sign, a crystal bonfire and a ghostly Mierlin!  Many Toys for Jenn.

Green Ballon, another cushion and a Turnip Punching Bag

Finally, a sit-down for some cake.
The End.
Jenn/Vier we think of you everytime we log on to WoW.
We Love You.
We Miss You.

Missing Vier - Obituary


December 10, 1989 – August 26, 2017

Peacefully on Saturday, August 26, 2017, Jenn passed away at the age of 27. She is survived by her parents, Auntie Sandy, cousins Kyle. B.J. (Jasmin), Michael, Christine & family, as well as numerous other aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Special online friends, Leah of Great Britain and Rowan of Australia.

Born 10 December 1989 in northern Manitoba. Jenn and her family moved to the farm when she was four years old. She attended primary and secondary school in Manitoba. Her post-secondary education was in New Brunswick.

Jennifer loved words, books, languages, linguistics, expressing herself with wit and pith, and exploring cultures other than her own. She had travelled to the islands of the United Kingdom and Greece. In her second year at university, January 2009, studying French, German, Spanish and Japanese, she was making plans for a summer in Germany when she became ill.

Determined to continue her study of languages in the spring of 2009, she attended College to learn ASL.

At an early age, Jennifer was introduced to computer gaming, and was an early subscriber to the MMORPG “World of Warcraft”. After she became ill she dedicated much of her time to her online communities including battle.net (Hearthstone, Overwatch and WoW), Sapherna, Subeta, and support groups for people living with chronic illness.

In keeping with Jennifer’s wishes, cremation has taken place, and a private interment will be held.  In honour of Jenn you could play a card, board or online game with your loved ones; teach your pet a new trick; or read a book by J.R.R. Tolkien. You could also watch a Peter Jackson /J.R.R. Tolkien movie as long as you promise to snort or swear at the parts that are different from the books.

Jenn’s family thank the healthcare professionals at the Dialysis, ER and ICU Units. There are far too many medical personnel to name individually with the various team members running into the hundreds over the eight and half years. Your care and compassion in the treatment of Jenn’s illnesses and conditions were appreciated beyond what mere words can express.

Pippin: “I didn’t think it would end this way.”

Gandalf: “End?… No, the journey doesn’t end here.
Death is just another path, one we must all take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass,  and then you see it.”

Pippin: “What, Gandalf?  See what?”

Gandalf: “White shores, and beyond, a far green country under a swift sunrise.”

Pippin: “Well, that isn’t so bad.”

Gandalf: “No….No it isn’t.”
