What Are You Scheming, BRK?

So, since the day I caught my hunter's Skoll, I've been hopping over to BigRedKitty's old site in the hopes of re-reading all those stories from hunters just so excited to pick up Loque.

Except...the site is gone?

At first, there was just this black image, with a barely detectable outline of BRK's old logo. Then that disappeared, and there was a black image with what looked like a spotlight shining down on the middle. And now...

Now the spotlight is surrounded by four speech bubbles. "Hey Hobbes, what does 'NDA' mean?" "No Dwarves Allowed." "Why, that's an outrage!" "That's Cataclysm."

NDA? Cataclysm? Dwarves? Could the most famous hunter of all time be finding his way back to the scene? What is he hiding? Is he (gasp!) race changing to Worgen? Why is he such a tease? Will he be using the BRK-1000?

Gah! I'm too curious; I need to know.

Whoa, I hadn't even noticed. How intriguing!

oh, Wow!!!! DANIEL!!!! What's up??? :)

Curious minds need to know... :)

Very interesting. Something clever is going to happen.

Urak said...

I know that his status on Google chat and been 'NDA, That's All I'll Say, EiEiO.' Now this makes a wee more sense.

Oh man, I hope he does come back! I was listening to some podcasts the other day and thinking about how much I missed hearing his voice on them. *fingers crossed*

Hydra said...

That is funny! Here is hoping that hunter changes have the BRK touch.

Hana said...

:o I would be nice to hear from him again. ^_^

NDA=Nondisclosure agreement?

Could he be in the alpha?

Angelya said...

It's either Alpha or they've offered him a job :-/

*excited whisperings around the blogosphere*

Armond said...

I would be very surprised if he weren't invited to the alpha.

I'm also surprised that darkness.jpg is no longer on the servers. (That was the old pic you mentioned. At least, I'm pretty sure that was it. I can't find blackness.jpg, either.) Did anyone think to save it, I wonder? I didn't, as I thought it was a "this site is now closed permanently" type of thing.

Google hasn't cached any of the new images yet and Daniel was smart enough to both password protect the FTP connection and not upload any further images under the "conversation_#.jpg" naming scheme. The only thing I can offer is the opinion that there are nine or fewer pictures of this conversation to be discovered, as he named them starting at 1 instead of 0, 00, or 01.

The short version: I'm way too curious about this.

Armond said...

Clarification: I'd be surprised if he weren't invited to the alpha, but not if he declined the invitation. Then again, maybe he feels ready to give WoW a try again.

NDA here, Alpha and Friend (on Brain needed space blog) - can't be anything but Alpha testing.

Euripides said...

The image on his site changed again :)

All I can say is WOOT! You two (BRK and Bell) have to be my favorite WoW blogs/bloggers. Which makes me ponder something... is there some natural way of WoW life that makes many people roll both a hunter and a druid?? I can't tell you how many people I've run across that claim to have 2 mains - their DPS hunter and their healer Druid. What do you guys think?

By the way Bell, you have been named as his official BRK Executive Assistant of Alpha! Is this true?!

Tom said...

I am so stoked to have, at the very least, a partially back BRK (although even a 1 episode revival of the podcast would be almost as good as a beta key!) He makes the game as a whole better, even if it is just testing the Alpha.

As for the Druid/Hunter thing, It is soooo true. I am guilty of it as well. Hunter as my main and a Tree as my only other leveled alt. It could be no other way.
