I think I told you about the Hozen before? They’re an odd bunch – calling me a wikket (whatever that means!) This is their leader Tooki Tooki. He’s a pretty chill dude. Well really, besides the occasional freakout over random stuff, they all are. They do seem to have an unflinching dislike for a race called the Jinyu. The Jinyu are a strange race too. Not that I’ve had much to do with them, but they’re the Hozen’s enemies, so I guess they’re ours now too.
I helped the Hozen out for a bit since General Nazgrim is looking to establish a foothold here and the Hozen seemed fairly co-operative. The Pandaren, on the other hand, seem strangely neutral. They’re not outright siding with us or the Alliance, so it’s kinda strange. It does mean that I keep bumping into Alliance all over the place.
Speaking of bumping into the Alliance – just look at this! I couldn’t believe who we captured – the human prince. His name is Anduin. The Human king Varian is going to be so angry when he hears his son has been captured by the Horde! It’s a little weird though, I had the chance to talk to Anduin for a while and I kind of feel like I’m on a similar wavelength as him. Oh, I know it’s wrong – he’s Alliance and I’m Horde – and I am loyal to the warchief. Mind you, a lot of what Anduin said made a lot of sense. I’m going to have to think more carefully on his opinions.
Lorewalker Cho then asked me to head to another Pandaren village called Dawn’s Blossom. I think they consider it a city, but really it isn’t. It’s lovely though. It’s the sort of place that fits the word ‘quaint’ perfectly. Plus the locals are adorable, well the kids are. They call them cubs and they wouldn’t leave me alone to start with. We became pretty good friends though. Probably because I helped a bunch of them that got scared and got stuck up trees. After that we saved another cub that had been captured by a witch and turned into jade.
Speaking of jade, they do have quite a fascination with it here. Take a look at this view from near Dawn’s Blossom. Amazing view and even more amazing structure. I’m not sure how much longer I’ll stay in the Jade Forest since I keep hearing about so many other areas here in Pandaria. I do want to take a closer look at that tower though.
