    Quietly Dawn peered over the ridge at the site below. "Crimson Dragons! Is this what you brought me here to see Fayaxion?"

    "Yes Lady Dawn, it is. This is where the Crimson horde has been hiding, I've risked much to find this place, now I need your aide."

    "Anything, I can do I will, without your aide Luna would still be under siege!", Dawn replied "But what is it you have in mind?"

    With a growl that almost gave away Fayaxion's draconian heritage, "The Platinum Dragons will attack catching them unprepared, destroy this enemy and our others grow weaker, but I would like some of your army to assist in this, I do not ask you to come yourself, I know your planning a much more dangerous assault, but I would like what aide you can provide. I've learned that the Crimson Dragons have provided much magic for followers of the Shadowlords including hidden chambers for them to plan in secret, carved from reality with their magics. Destroy the Crimson Dragons, and the followers of the Shadowlords will be more greatly exposed. "

    Nodding, Dawn gazed back at the Crimson Dragons and wondered if they soon would be walking into a death trap.

    "Tonight at twilight I'll gather a force to accompany you, but let me ask you this, what if you fail?"

    "Let us hope that does not happen."

    Meet at the Cove Docks if you wish to join the Platinum Dragons Assault

    Fayaxion fails grammar.

    (Not a shot at you Ian, I'm assuming this is a copy/paste from some text you were given. I have a higher standard for 'officially' released things. If you did type it yourself, ignore me, people not getting paid are allowed to make mistakes =] )

    Nope, copy/paste

    I actually had fixed an error in the title, but I didn't bother to read the rest as it was sent to me earlier today and I didn't have a chance to post it until now.

    If you want real grammatical entertainment, you should read some of the "Live Event" postings on the Herald

    Huh, excessive commas, and a sex addict. If the Fayax machine can't stop thinking about her aide even in the middle of stalking the crimson horde, I dunno if he's the best man for the job.

    ... What about with a growl? Did he say something after a growl? That's implied by the quotes, but it makes my brain skip reading it. My brain knows there's more to the sentence, but it doesn't know what!

    GEE ZEUS ****ING HELA.... Somebody take away that man's commas. Our other what's growing weaker? What about her planning? Why the **** is he still fixated on her aide? Leave the poor aide alone.
    Apostrophe.

    Bleh, I'm bored.

    Who writes this though?

    This is an event?

    What the ****?

    "Let's create a gate into the middle of 20 AoEing dragons. The story behind it? There are dragons AoEing there, and we're gating you into it. Oh, after you get your stuff, kill them or something."

    I'm going to go eat.

    Is this what passes for an event these days?
