Do not fear to repeat what has already been said. Men need the truth dinned into their ears many times and from all sides. The first rumor makes them prick up their ears, the second registers, and the third enters.

 In Memoriam

 

Boggy Firehand

   Just a month ago, he celebrated his 34th birthday. He was born a simple gnome but with a great future. 

   Bogenshold was not like most other gnomes. Instead of working on fun engineered toys, he would spend his free time in the library reading about cultures of far off lands. His parents did not mind it because he already had nine older brothers who became engineers so they thought it was alright if the tenth child was different.

   As soon as he reached maturity, Boggy went on to become a librarian in the Ironforge Royal Library during the age of exploration brought to dwarves by King Magni Bronzebeard. 

   Boggy never came back to Gnomeregan. With dwarves he stayed in Ironforge through its siege during the First War and all the way until the end of the Third War.

   In year 22 at the age of 30, Boggy left for Dalaran. He heard and learned a lot about magic but the constant conflicts did not allow him to become a wizard. The brightest days of his life began there.

   Within 3 years Boggy earned a degree of Professor of Fire-Magic Theory. He helped the reformed Kirin Tor rebuild their precious city and he trained new mages to join the ranks of the order.

   At the age of 33, Dr. Firehand arrived in Stormwind to begin a new life. The shortest and the most important time in the Kingdom. 

   Boggy encouraged learning and gave away gold to pay for the commoners' lessons in the Stormwind Academy. His scholarships made him famous and he soon became a member of the Alliance Scholars' Society. For his works in the field of Magic Theory he received the Order of Valor of the First Degree.

   In July of this year, the gnome proposed an idea of creation of a non-profit press communication service the result of which became The Stormwind Times where he worked as editor and writer.

   Bogenshold's ultimate glory was brought when Elisabeth Windsor was arrested. He organized massive protest demonstrations and asked the Earl of Stormwind to free Elisabeth and punish the corrupt officials.

   Boggy was successful but his success brought his death. He believed that this cause was the most important and worthy to die for because without the freedom of speech there can be no liberty at all. We love you, Boggy. Rest in peace.
