[A] Gnomes-only Firelands raid, 08/24

Please join me, my gnomish brethren, in a symbolic coming-together where we will be decimating various things many times our size. It is a gesture to let Azeroth know that we will not tolerate the oppression of the dumb, useless Talls (present company excluded, of course) and that it is only a matter of time before this world understands who its true rulers are.

As a "something to do" while we wait for MoP, I'm going to be hosting a gnomes-only Firelands raid on Friday, Aug. 24th, at 9:00pm EST. Depending on how many people sign up / show, it will be either 10-man or 25-man.

Please post here or send me in-game mail for a calendar invite.

Basic rules:
- Your character must be a gnome. No Tallie pets allowed!
- Loot will be distributed under the in-game "Need Before Greed" scheme. This includes the legendary quest items.
- If you don't have the intimate knowledge of all the fights, please be able to join vent (listen-only is fine).

---

UPDATE:
The event was a lot of fun!
Here are some screenshots:

What a wonderfully fun idea! I wish you the best of luck in this and I'm sure that I know some Gnomes who would love to participate. Alas, my little Gnome is only level 62 at the moment. Perhaps she'll be ready for the next one though!

Prove it. Do the secret handshake.

Oh, wait. You can't. You don't have enough fingers!


He's only got one less than you. Weird four-fingered freaks.

I could wear Burgy Blackheart's cap. Does that count? =P


I got a similar question about http://www.wowhead.com/item=54651/gnomeregan-pride

I'm afraid that Talls disguising themselves as gnomes will be seen as infiltration attempts and subsequently used as cannon fodders / bait meat for Core Hounds.

(Serious answer: I'll consider it if we're short on attendance.)

Sadly my Gnomes have been morphed into either a Goblin Mage or a Fem Orc Rogue. I am waiting for the day when BLIZZ allows us Gnomes in exile to return home as member of all classes. Until that day, I will remain as I am.

Hmm, maybe if I learn how to shapeshift into gnome form, I could get let in...?

Wait, I think I have a potion for that somewhere here in my bags...

Thanks for the nice words everybody.

My biggest concern right now is tanks. I'm hoping Nat can main-tank for us. (I urge everybody to send him copious amounts of cookies, particularly the fortune ones, with blackmail threats inside.)

Everything except Beth'tilac, Ragnaros (and probably Shannox) can be solo-tanked and I can bring my gnome warrior to off-tank those two if we get a healer backup for me.

What I have always wanted to see is a 40 man premade AV run of all gnomes.
