I posted this on wow_ladies just now, but I figure I'll post it here too in case someone out there knows. And in case you haven't seen it yourself and would want to.
I randomly swung by that little park in Stormwind Keep today (where you have to kill those noblemen for the Missing Diplomat chain as a lowbie). To my surprise I saw that huge honking yellow exclamation point on my minimap and quickly located this little girl wandering around the park with a quest for me. Her name is Alicia and she wants me to deliver a letter to someone named Caylee on the Aldor tier in Shattrah. Okay, I think to myself, must be the start of some shiny new quest chain or whatever.
Head to Shattrah and sure enough, opposite the Mark of Sargeras dude there's a new NPC: Caylee Dak the NE Hunter and her Nightsaber, Dusky. I'm surprised, however, when I hand her the envelope, get my 3-4 gold and.... don't get a follow up? Wait, that was it? I discover that I can talk to Caylee again and when I do the only option is to ask her to read me Alicias poem - the one that was in the envelope.
And it's sad :/
Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am in a thousand winds that blow,
across Northrend's bright and shining snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain,
on Westfall's fields of golden grain.
I am in the morning hush,
of Stranglethon's jungle, green and lush.
I am in the drums loud and grand,
the hunderous hooves across Nagrand.
I am the stars warmly gleaming,
over Darnassus softly dreaming.
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there. I do not die.
It reminded me of that toombstone in Hillsbrad Foothills (read about it on wowinsider I think) that was put into the game in memory of a person close to a Blizzard employee or something that had died. Is this something like that? Was this put into the game with patch 2.3 or has it been there longer and I just never noticed? Does anyone know what the story is? And is this only for Alliance Aldor people, or does Alicia ask you to deliver it at the Scryers tier if you're Scryer?
Sad panda :(
Edited: A lovely poster on WoW_ ladies found out. Awwww :/
