IntPiPoMo 2012 #6 and #7 - Sha

November is the month of NaNoWriMo. If a picture is worth a thousand words, and the NaNoWriMo target is fifty thousand words, then Angelya of Revive and Rejuvenate has said, surely we can post fifty pictures and be winners as well - IntPiPoMo!  This is part of my contribution to the series.

Ten thousand years ago, Shaohao, the last Pandaren emperor, sought to rule wisely, that he might save Pandaria from ruin. To better his people, Shaohao undertook a grand quest to strip away his own negative emotions. He succeeded, and the doubt, anger, fear and still more that he plucked from himself was imprisoned beneath the earth. But it did not lie still. It seeped into the very land Shaohao hoped to protect. In the heart of Pandaria, Shaohao’s darkness – the Sha – waited, feeding off every harsh word, angry fist or pang of despair. The Pandaren have trained themselves in compassion, patience, and love of life in order to limit their contribution to the power of the Sha, but with the arrival of violent outsiders on Pandaria, all their care may be for naught.


This is the Sha emerging from the Jade Temple Serpent after we had that big clash with Alliance resulting in the breaking of that gorgeous statue we helped to build...


And this is the Sha of Anger, the not-so-rare that pops up in Kun-Lai summit, up close.  Also known as Loot Sha.  He doesn't agro even when I'm right in his face!  Interesting....

  1. The Sha is so angry, it can't focus its vision and suffers from myopia. Anger Management could help with that.

    Or glasses.

    Bifocals even.

    1. They look a bit like Aliens don't they? A shame they all look the same...
