Dwarves in Silverpine

“There was something in the air. Something not quite right….

The evening’s mounted patrol toward the Sepulchur was as routine as the setting of the sun. Hours crawled and at one point it seemed like the patrol would not end. The two deaders mounted sternly upon their Warhorses did not waiver. Their bones rubbed against the bones of their steeds. Grinding gently as they patrolled at a trot. 

As they neared the Forsaken Rear Guard outpost Crowford glanced over his right shoulder toward Fenris Isle. As something floated a tower’s height above the water he reached over to the other Patroller and smacked Rhivesha on her shoulder. She glanced across her companion’s body and down his lengthy arm. At the end was his brittle finger pointing upward toward Fenris Isle.  As soon as she caught a glance at the object it seemed to have just floated downward in a controlled flight. The object was much larger than a crow or a bat.

Without a word she looked to her companion and nodded.

The two deaders tightened the reigns of their mounts and forced them into a full sprint eastward toward the Decrepit Fields. As the two deaders arrived at the water’s edge they dismounted and began their reconnaissance of what had flown into the Keep at Fenris Isle. As they emerged from the water the Rhivesha gracefully concealed herself in the darkness and proceeded as the Crowford awaited her return.

As she crept toward the Keep she found a small contingent of Dwarves mounted on Gryphons atop the towers of the Keep. She counted the numbers and positions and proceeded back to her companion.

They devised a plan of attack and engaged the Dwarves…. The battle was quickly handled. The deaders had driven off the Dwarves leaving two of them severely wounded. Rhivesha had suffered minor injury while Crowford was unscathed. The remaining Dwarves gathered their wounded and took flight toward the South and were out of sight.”

Territorial Incursion Incident #10974-B, Response: Artillary

Field Report: Territorial Incursion Incident #10974-B

Response: Artillery, Experimental Ammunition Used In Field Test

Location: Silverpine Front, Ambermill

Summary: Deathstalker Ikthael returned with reports regarding an Alliance encampment in Ambermill. The forces were cited as being armed, and armored: a hostile force. Given the defensive nature of the position, orders were given to shell the location. Due to time constrains, the paperwork to procure Blight was not able to be filed, and so experimental artillery was used. Apothecary Zedane prepared acid bombs, with the assistance of others. Additionally, Apothecary Ansadril took rotting Worgen corpses were gutted and stuffed full of disease riddled filth and the acid bombs.

Test Results: Success, further research requested on acid bombs and corpse bombs.

Area Status: Reclaimed, hostile forces present.

-Deathstalker Field Commander #1971U

Catapults from the Silverpine front lined were turned and placed, then aimed while the ammunition was prepared.

Under the cover of the last volly of catapult fire, we rode into Ambermill. There both forces clashed, the outcome bloody. Alliance troops suffered from acid splash damage, and the flaming pitch covered rotten worgen corpse had started a small fire. We had an unfair advantage, and used it.

Twilight Cultists in Silverpine?

“Word reached us that there were potentially a sub-sect of the Twilight Cultists settling into Silverpine. The ‘Order of the Grey’ had intell and info. As a pack the lot of us headed out cultist hunting, intended to recover their occultist research material and use their corpses…. -B”

Battle blessings were performed before we rode out.

Our bats got their first battlefield blood. Every forsaken riding out on the hunt, rode a bat.

The fighting was brutal….the ‘harvest’ great.
