By Order Of High Command: Happy Holidays

12-19-2016-8-27-04-pm

“The rotters in High Command have a twisted sense of humor. For yet another year the observation of Winter’s Veil has been passed down to us via High Command as a mandatory celebration. The mentality behind such an order is simple – remind us that we are to jump when told. The typical spin is that the parties and festive interactions boost morale, and that low morale troops are subject to recycle. And so like every year, we host a small awkward holiday party and exchange gifts. -U”

A Bloody End

5-16-2016 9-02-48 PM

“Horde Tavern Night was very much a standard affair, the goblin travel agency who hosts this monthly affair selected the World’s End Tavern for this month’s gathering. Initially the evening was going well, though it soon melted down into a series of disquieting events that ended in a murder suicide.

Tests on the food from the evening show that the food was tainted with fel magic. This food was fed to the masses, any who ate consumed it. More concerning was that the meat in particular was that of the flesh of the races of the Horde. Who is responsible for these actions remains unknown, though the murder suicide at Horde Tavern implies some connection.

A fresh recruit of the Nexus, bearing our tabard was responsible for the slaughter. Without warning, or being provoked, he lashed out and utterly eviserated a young elven woman from behind. The gory display horrifying for even veteran members of the Horde who bore witnessing the murder. The Forsaken responsible for the murder was quickly detained. Restrained he began screaming, proclaiming in a frenzy that his actions were my own orders, and thus the will of Forsaken High Command. He had no such orders. In his mad ravings he spoke of another figure head, of the Marshal and the promise of power.

I ordered his tabard stripped from him, Henry quickly and easily tore that tabard from him. That tabard is now of special interest, as it is now the only thing reamining of the Forsaken assassin. Shortly after having had the tabard torn from him, the Forsaken assassin blew up in a wave of emerald fire – seemingly a suicide, or not? A number of individuals were injured in the blast.

The tabard acquired from the assassin will soon be subject to arcane scrying in an attempt to learn more about this individual’s past.

Alarmingly, there was no soul for even our most talented of Necromancers to acquire. -Deathstalker Field Commander #1971U”

OOC: The Tournament of Thorns went off without a hitch, and was a HUGE success! A lot of people came together to make this event possible, a special thanks to the Umbrella Enclave, Xulili, the sponsors and everyone in the Undercity Nexus who helped make this event possible no matter how big or small they contributed!

We really love this format, and will use this again in the future!

Total raised for the Humane Society: $50!!!!!! The full amount! Thank you Moon Guard for helping out homeless pets!

The Tournament Of Thorns had a record turn out, with the elite organizations of the Horde in attendance as well as many leaders. Everyone in attendance was eager to see the tournament play out.

The Cult Of Forgotten Priestess Sereta, a member of the Nexus, offered a opening prayer and blessing for the Champions. Unexpectedly they knelt before her, awaiting her words of encouragement and empowerment.

The duels were brutal, and no one easily yielded. The audience was frequently impressed, and cheers and chants could be heard through the night. During the opening round, the Champions were to first salute their generous patron, and then announce their cause. Afterward, they were free to lay on.

Aside from the tournament, there were other distractions offered. The Cult put forward one of their Priest, who in turn offered Death Predictions to those brave enough to learn of their ultimate fate. The death predictions were rather popular after the tournament had finished.

Arathi Campaign – The Caravan

“Though defeated on the fight night of combat, we will not so easily yield or let this dampen our spirits. -U”

The siege has begun, and based on the skirmishes is already bloody. To try and turn back the tide of war, and the odds into the favor of the Horde we rode out to strike at a supply caravan of critical goods.

Horde rally before ride out.

The Horde caught the caravan outside the tunnel, blindsiding them. Clashing headlong into their forces, the fighting was bloody. There were heavy losses on both sides, and the wounded were dragged off the battlefield at alarming numbers. A medical station was held at Hammerfall, and soon was flooded with the injured.

Soldiers and leaders alike fell, the Horde was defeated…barely. The smell of blood, open wounds coupled with groans of pain made the Hammerfall camp less than peaceful overnight.
