-A Horde RP D20 Mini Campaign, The Horde Vanguard-
Raszageth, The Storm-Eater has been defeated, but not without releasing her siblings from the Vault of Incarnates. The emboldened Primalist have been retasked across Azeroth, seeking relics of power for their cause. Traders, patrols, and other holdings have been attacked and ransacked; with pinpointed strikes within the reaches of Southern Kalimdor. All hostilities direct towards the Tauren Capital of Thunder Bluff. With the elements in upheaval and the encroaching Primalist challenging the Horde, the Vanguard answers the call to defend the Bluffs.

Invitations are sent to vendors of all varieties around every corner of Azeroth. Flyers are posted in taverns, inns, and marketplaces of questionable repute across the realm. Each one reads the exact same message:
“You are hereby cordially invited to venture deep into the dark and dangerous reaches of the North. The Forsaken Kingdom of Lordaeron buzzes with life even through undeath. With the reclamation of the upper parts of the city, a Trade District has been cleared and remains empty…until now….

What kind of merchant booths are you looking for? We are currently looking for fun and darker-themed booths that fall in line with the guidelines of our community which can be found in our discord server. Examples – Poison Crafter, Abomination Parts, Pirate goods, Fenced Illegal goods, questionable magical items. Please keep your booth and wares PG-13
Can I host a new booth? Absolutely! We just ask that the booth falls in line with the theme of the market. We aim to create a certain vibe and aesthetic for this market that provides a quality RP experience for our visitors.
Do RP merchants charge in-game gold? Most merchants generally take rp currency, not game gold. However, it is important to remember that each merchant is different, some merchants might charge game gold for valuable rp items such as crafted goods and toys. Gold tips are always welcome, however.
Are there limitations on the items I can sell as a vendor?: While we are aware that this is a ‘Black Market’ or ‘Illicit Market’ there are certain darker adult themes that are not allowed within this event. Please keep your booth strictly PG-13. More information on this can be found on our server.
“With the return of the beloved Crown Princess Calia Menethil to her people in Lordaeron proper, we are seeing a larger mix of the living passing through the area. As a result, our tavern nights have an interesting blend of traffic on some nights. This weeks gathering included a lost soul, an Augent squire, and a curious assortment of the usual rotters. -Sister Power Of The Shovel Of Mercy”
“There is a wealth of information to pillage in the Dragon Isles. While the masses are distracted by plunger, wealth, and advantage, our attention has turned to the elements of decay and the questions they might pose or answer. Among the Apothecary, there is talk about potential cures to undeath..which could be weaponized against us. By orders of High Command, we were deployed to round up and acquire Gnoll test subjects.”
“The Dragon Isles have shipped the Horde so far from the base of established supply chains, that there is a felt strain among the living deployed here. Our militia was uprooted from Silverpine and moved out alongside allies to act as aides and supporting stewards to the efforts of the living. As such, I continue to volunteer our men for efforts to restock and supply troops with fresh food from places otherwise unwelcoming. Ice fishing in particular proved successful this month, as the fish below the ice are a favorite among the orcs and trolls, yet the weather is so hostile.
Left unmentioned to those attending, we are gathering key reagents from under the ice to support research by the Apothecary into the Dragon Isles.”
“A Forsaken priest is a curious beast, their path an unusual course. Their shadowy rites cannot come from the Light, so they seek a more sinister source.” – A rhyming poem recited by Dark Cleric Duesten to the beloved RP community,
I invite you to join members of the Cult of the Forgotten Shadow on the evening of February the 5th, a Sunday, at 8 pm ST for a night of prayer and reflection.
As many of you know, the cult preaches balance. It mandates that shadow priests must never forget the dangers of falling too deep into the dark energies they manipulate, for it is often too hard to find one’s way back to the Shadow from the deep reaches of the darkness. We believe in the teachings of the three virtues: respect, tenacity, and power, and wish to share them with you in the form of sermons.
As our leader, Natalie Selene, once said….
“The Void is filled with many whispers. The kind that should have us all worried. We cannot afford to be separated by our beliefs. We must come together as priests of both Light and Shadow to face whatever challenge may be ahead.”
Shadow Sermons: OOC Info
-Date(s): The first Sunday of each month at 8 pm ST -First meeting: February 5th, 2023 -Where: The Ruins of Lordaeron (Must be level 60 with the 9.2.5 Lordaeron questline completed from Shadowlands) -Who: Everyone is welcome. -Contacts: Eveline Harrington, Estella Blair, and Sanari Shadowtear
“The Primalist threat in the Dragon Isles is ever present, and a number of the members of the Hrode were called to ride out and confront one such threat. During this, a few less than cunning types discovered the threat posted by lightning when one stands in water.”
“A diplomatic invitation and arrangement was made between those representing the government and Kingdom of Gilneas and that of Lordaeron. A number of Deathstalkers were assigned escort duty and shadowed the traveling remaining nobilities of Lordaeron. For the first time in many years, the two courts mingled, much to the horror of the Alliance of Stormwind.”
“As foreseen, the Horde on the move needs a healthy supply chain to sustain its troops. So far from our main bases of operation, and civilian support, the Horde deployed to the Dragon Isles have had to lean into a great measure of self-sufficiency. Food being central to the morale of the living combined with cranky orcs and hungry trolls are problematic, we have elected to help ensure the stability of the food chain for our allies. As such, fishing is on the docket once a month.”
