Travel Advisory: Broken Isles

The Royal Aeronautics Corps would like to remind travelers preparing for eventual air travel over the Broken Isles that though you will soon have clearance to fly, you must adhere to military rule and regulation. The Legion still has airborne units active in the area and it will not be an uncommon sight to see a military craft or gryphon patrolling the area.

Please be courteous and respectful to any and all military personnel patrolling the skies over the Broken Isles. In the event that you should find yourself in the heat of aerial combat, please return to Dalaran or to the nearest safe point to your route and allow military personnel to resolve the conflict.

If you are not in a military organization or any order already committed to the war effort, do not engage Legion in the skies.

Thank you, and have a pleasant and safe trip in the skies over the Broken Shore.

Located in the northwest corner of Lake Superior Isle Royale National Park in Michigan is the place to go for solitude. The park is an island of roadless backcountry reachable only by boat or seaplane – making it the least visited national park in the lower 48 states. Photographer Carl TerHaar captured this moonrise from Pickerel Cove, one of the islands’ campgrounds that consists of a narrow ridge accessible by small boat.

L. David Mech and Adolph Murie both wrote an anecdote about wolves getting rid of fleas by holding a stick in their mouth while submerging themselves little by little, until they are completely underwater and the fleas all jump on the stick, which the wolf then lets go of.

anonymous asked:

What would be a good fusion between a Lace Black Pearl and a Jade? Also would you mind providing a color palette for one or two of them please, and thank you very much!

I’m sorry for the long wait you might have had in response to this ask. If you still feel like you need a fusion and a palette, here you go!~

I would recommend these gems for a fusion between a Jade and Lace Black Pearl:

Aventurine a good possibility. It can be translucent or more solid in color, and it has its Aventurescence which gives it a glittery shimmering appearance. For a color Palette, there is a palette here.

Kambaba Jasper (also known as Crocodile Jasper) is another nice stone that they could fuse into The swirls of green also look very lacy and pretty. And it can come in a pale green or a nice mossy green.
For a palette, I made up this:

Trapiche Emerald is like a green inverse snowflake with how it’s shaped. It’s shape can vary from thin lines to thick ones. And I imagine you could go for a streamlined look based on the spokes it has.
For a color palette, this could world as a possibility.

Chlorastrolite (also known as Isle Royal Greenstone or Green Starstone) is a very elegant looking stone, so if you’re going for an elegant look, this one could go nicely! It also looks like lace- or a turtle’s shell too.
For a palette, these colors could work:

I hope this helps you!

I spent 8 days on Isle Royale a couple weeks ago and had an absolutely amazing experience.  It really feels like a world away, and doing it solo made it even more real.  Without any real form of communication with the outside world, everything just seemed more simple, I took advantage of every minute of the day and it helped me realize what types of things are really important.  I think everybody should do a similar trip while they are young, it gives you real perspective and a real appreciation for nature and the natural resources we have at our finger tips.  In short: Shut off the TV. Get off the couch, go outside and explore!  The real entertainment is in your backyard, in the woods, on the river, the lake, the beach, in the desert, the mountains.   Go outside!
