Pig Grease and My Bloody Valentine

It’s a slow day at the office; perfect for catching up with all the new blogs from the Age of Blogging. The Warhammer Online community is ablaze with news of hair products, Schwarzenegger DVDs and bloody valentine cards. The bros at Mythic have been sending packages to bloggers, having them solve a riddle and get the word out. If we were to talk about money well-spent, Mythic certainly has the PR dudes earning their keep.

Update 1/27 9:18PM GMT +8: There are other cards at Rainbow MMO and Epic Slant. The plot thickens.

Update 1/28 4:35PM GMT +8: LagWar and Stylish Corpse receive their bloody valentines. The suspense is killing me!

Update 1/28 5:10PM GMT +8: A random envelope arrives at /Random.

The first two packages strongly hint at the upcoming Dwarf Slayer and Greenskin Choppa – badass melee classes that smelt of Garnier Nutrisse and Austrian testosterone respectively. Solid careers, but not really my thing.

Okay, the thought of orange mohawks and pig grease-styling is kinda amusing.

With the positive response from these marketing stunts, now we have Valentine cards. There are at least 13 and 3 7 8 of those have been sent to Keen & Graev, Asuryan’s Flames, Rainbow MMO, Epic Slant, LagWar, Stylish Corpse, Werit, and /Random. The cards contain poems, bloody splatters and black kisses – reminds me of my last ex-girlfriend.

What could these cards signify? Regis over at Wizards & Wenches thinks that it could be a portent for Death Night (not Death Knights, nimrod), a Dark Elf ritual chock-full of murder, sacrifice and Druchii lesbian orgies.

Okay, I made the last one up.

Nice mental image, though.

The whole thing is still a mystery. Somewhere, a mailman is holding one of ten six five remaining pieces of the puzzle; a key to the twisted awesome mind of Paul Barnett and his crafty marketing department. Gotta love these kinda events.

Much love. Now if you could just send one of those brand name pig grease products my way.

Thanks to Regis for the image

    This idea by Mythic is awesome. Really making people wonder about the whole thing, At the moment I think it’s gonna be some kind of live event for Valentine’s day. But I don’t think it will be about the Slayer or Hammerer, more likely witch elves.
