The Greedy & The Desolate

Horde Meeting


Hearing about the recent encounters between Horde and Alliance, Chieftain Abrahof Ragetotem led a contingent of braves to a War Council in Stonard.  Notable among them, Warbrave Torahate Redwood, a large imposing figure.

Among several Goblin cartels, the most prominent, Swiftsilver and Quickfuse, Scabber continued to dole out goods and sought to make a profit regardless of the meeting's importance. 

While some thought it necessary to waste their breath implying that Redwood's attention was elsewhere while they defended the Horde, Chieftain Ragetotem largely ignored the mercenaries that appeared to only be there for profit as they track down an artifact in Alliance hands.  Pledging braves in defense of the Horde, the Chieftain departed and the Warbrave requested to see if there were peaceful means to obtaining the object in question and made ready to embark to a meeting with the Alliance, time and

location to be decided.

As an aside, The Warbrave made friends with an irksome Peep!

Desolate Clinic, atop the gates of Orgrimmar


Desolate Clinic again took their place to see patients suffering from strange and mystifying ailments, however one visitor seemed to have a different stance on diagnosis and treatments.  Zaxie Redwood took time away from Moonglade to check out the clinic himself and spent most of the time questioning Father Benedikt and his staff of "experts".  He was horrified by some of the "cures" he witnessed.

Warbrave Redwood continues to suffer some ailment to his hoof and received a stern warning against stomping.  (Perhaps

he should not snort as much either!) and local editor received a Druidic treatment to clear up Hoof and Turf disease.  "It was horrible, Lohkawas said, "Flowers popping up every time I took a step... and I couldn't grab them up and take them to Mokalyn, either!  I think the addition of a Druid to the medical staff and lack of ooze in the treatment was very refreshing."

Chief's Corner

Greetings all!

We are coming into the rise of Summer and things are heating up!  Temperatures rise throughout the lands as does the trouble brought about by these shadowy portals. 

Take note that also on the rise are out of work mercenaries.  Where there is no war and conflict these mercenaries take hold and stoke the flames even higher.   They seek gold and blood only, friends.  Defend yourselves if you must, but realize that we are on the brink as the shadows grow... and these mercenaries will sell you out as fast as they claim to defend what is yours.

Earth Mother watch over us!
