Light Hope's Chapel
The Ashen Vale and Redwood Tribes meet for the 3rd anniversary Friendsgiving in Light Hope's Chapel. Compared to the previous years, some of the parties present greeted each other like old friends, while others seemed to barely remember the last two meetings and festivities had ever happened. The food was fantastic, and then it was time to race while many asked each other about what they thought of Sylvanas and the new realm she had opened up above their very heads. See you all next year... we hope!
Rites of Passage
Sunrock Retreat saw a great gathering of Tribesmembers from both Frostreaver Clan and Redwood Tribes as many completed another Rite of Passage. This time the Rite of Honor, one of four rites as Tribemen learn and grow within the Tribes and train to become elders. There was no lacking fighting spirit and all seemed to genuinely understand the concept of Honor as they faced each other in one-on-one duels throughout the glade.
Tall Tales & Epic Fables
Stonetalon Mountains 12.3.20
Well, I did make it to the Shadowlands, after all. I must be a fool, despite being a Sage.
Not sure what I will be able to do out here, so for now, I am staying in Oribos and concentrating on learning on all I can to assist the Tribe and all of us, to be honest.
Meanwhile, there is talk that the armistice is faltering, even as some of our leaders are stuck in this Torghast Prison. At least there was word of yet another Dwarven attack on Orgrimmar and the portal room. This time, however, the Horde was waiting and watching.
And... their are rumors some of the Tribe have been called to Mount Hyjal by the other Sage, Okwaho Skyseer. I am awaiting word on those Perilous Escapades.
Earth Mother watch over us!
Fishing in Shadowlands
The Tribes Go Fishing
The Tribe begin their excursions into the Shadowlands with some fishing.

The Tribe began fishing in the new lands with Ardenweald and more recently found some fish in the green slime of Maldraxxus... are we eating those?

Shamanic Journey of Healing 2
The Redwood Shamans called for another Journey of Healing through the Capitol and surrounding lands to celebrate the Winter Solstice. Other healers of the Light joined them and together they marched and healed the land, the people, and the spirits of all they encountered. It was only towards the end was a break taken to enjoy the Holiday festivities with a cheerful sleigh ride and perhaps found some healing for themselves.

A first hand account of the chaos these Dwarves continue to instill, despite an armistice:
