Some of you may, or may not, know of our resident mascot who, if he decides to make an appearance, lifts our spirits, raises our energy levels higher of that than Red Bull and commands us on to magnificant Boss Kills when we feel all the odds are against us!

His name? Lurky.

For the past three years Lurky has been supporting us through the mass of achievements we've completed as a Guild and we owe it all to Lurky. At the time of The Burning Crusade, when he joined The Dottagers in his rightful place as a mascot, he lead us through Karazhan, Gruul, Maggy, TK, SSC and more... and now during the World of the Lich King adventures he has been there to guide us through Naxx (all over again), through the mechanical world of Ulduar and then put up with the enclosed auditorium that is Trial of the Crusade and finally into the fortress that is Icecrown Citadel.
This appears to be where Lurky is most excited for us, summoning all his might and power to lead us further and deeper into the Fortress. We are not quite sure why Lurky behaves like this, but rumour has it, Lurky wants to avenge the Lich King. It is apparently said that Lurky can not wait for the day that he can face the Lich King and taunt him (to death?!) with his significantly distinct dancing skills. Dancing skills that some might say are better than yours truely (blasphemy)!

So, it is shocking and sad news to announce that Lurky, in all his excitement of getting so close to the Lich King, has died. His spirits have faded and due to this extremely sad news the admin team are deliberating in respect to Lurky and the whole WoW community, that we, The Dottagers, will not continue through the Icecrown Citadel. We feel we would not last without him and a replacement would be severely unjust.

R.I.P. in peace, Lurky.

I doff my cap to you, sir! :doffcap:

RIP in peace indeed.

I vote we sell the contents of the guildbank and use the funds to build a statue of Lurky in Crystalsong Forest. A monument so tall it looks like lurky is wearing Dalaran as a hat. A fitting tribute to the greatest Dottager.

We're not sure, we know he is too clever to die in the fire, other than that, all we know is that he isn't with us anymore!

Can anyone solve the mystery of how Lurky died?
