This is very accurate.
Aegnas 11:25 pm
Aegnas flew to the mountains separating Nagrand and Zangarmarsh. The plateau he chose was just north-west of Garadar. From the edge, he could see the orc village. It made him frown. The orc patrols might see them if they weren’t careful.
Aegnas’s armor was his usual bright blue set, with the crown over his brow. The runeblades in his hands, however, were new. They had skulls incorporated into the hilt, and the blades were long and serated. The runes he’d engraved into the saronite were very visible, brand new and not yet worn with use. Considering their age, only a few days old, there was an oddly-strong aura of malice around them. They’d be strong if they continued to feed.
While Aegnas was now pale, gray-skinned since he’d destroyed his crystal runeblades, he moved with a grace and surety that spoke of his recovery. He scanned the skies, looking for Traejan’s frostwyrm.
Traejan 11:37 pm
Traejan had approached from the direction of Shattrath, flying high to avoid being noticed by the orcs and then circling down, coming to land once he had spotted Aegnas. He dismounted along with the skeleton that clung to the beast’s spines as it always did, the drake uttering a low rumble before it moved off to wait until he called upon it again.
He wore the same armour he had been seen in most recently, the green-tinted plate with the scale detail and the enchanted maws on either pauldron, occasionally opening wider as the brightly glowing tongue darted out. His black tabard and the metal itself was dotted with blood spatter, reddish-brown caked most heavily into the detailing on his gauntlets, particularly where the metal on the fingertips curved down slightly to add something of a claw-like effect. His hands rested on his blades which he hadn’t drawn just yet. He wore his goggles which effectively hid his eyes, his expression otherwise set in a grim frown as he studied the other death knight, noting his appearance and the new blades.
“… I’m sure there’s some interesting tale behind whatever happened to you. But it hardly matters.”
Mammy, buy me a friesian?

Russian Imperial Palaces → The Catherine Palace
The Catherine Palace is a Rococo palace located in the town of Tsarskoe Selo, 25 km south-east of St. Petersburg, Russia. It was the summer residence of the Russian tsars. The residence originated in 1717, when Catherine I of Russia engaged a German architect to construct a summer palace for her pleasure. Empress Elizabeth, however, found the residence outdated and incommodious and asked her court architect to demolish the old structure and replace it with a much grander edifice in a flamboyant Rococo style.
It was even rumoured that the palace’s roof was constructed entirely of gold. In front of the palace a great formal garden was laid out. Although the palace is popularly associated with Catherine the Great, she actually regarded its “whipped cream” architecture as old-fashioned. When she ascended to the throne, a number of statues in the park were being covered with gold, in accordance with the last wish of Empress Elizabeth, yet the new monarch had all the works suspended upon being informed about the expense.
When the German forces retreated after the siege of Leningrad, they intentionally destroyed the residence, leaving only the hollow shell of the palace behind. Prior to World War II, the Russian archivists managed to document a fair amount of the interior, which proved of great importance in reconstructing the palace. Although the largest part of the reconstruction was completed in time for the Tercentenary of St. Petersburg in 2003, much work is still required to restore the palace to its former glory. In order to attract funds, the palace’s administration has leased the Grand Hall for such high-profile events as Elton John’s concert for an elite audience in 2001 and an exclusive party in 2005 featuring the likes of Bill Clinton, Tina Turner, Whitney Houston, Naomi Campbell, and Sting.
