Oh Hello there! You caught unawares I’m afraid, I was not expecting you so soon. For those of who don’t know me, my name is Tinytitan, a Ret Paladin Dwarf of from the mountains of Ironforge. I know what your thinking, “If your a dwarf, where’s the accent?”. Well the author of this story has very limited ability to dip into the world of vernacular. Truth be told, I have know Mr. HandlebarWalrus since the days of the Burning Crusade. We didn’t help prevent Kil’Jaeden from entering our world, or bring an end to Illidan Stormrage either. We on the other hand were helping fight off many pesky Murlocs, because their aggressive tendencies brought great hilarity to our lives.
It wasn’t until the time of the Lich King, that we starting to see the seriousness of our current situation. Before Arthas became the major threat of our time, I remember him as a strong hearted sometimes overconfident prince. Reminds me of myself really, except for the royal bloodline; his charming good looks; and the fact that he could pretty much have any woman he wanted; including dwarves! That was a terrible, yet glorious time for Azeroth. We lost many lives in that conflict, but for one small moment both Alliance and Horde were willing to halt their conflict to combat the Lich King and his many undead.
I can still visualize it now. Horde and Alliance fighting as one! We were the mightiest force that Azeroth had ever known. That is until the breaking of the world form the black dragon himself “Deathwing The Destroyer”. Those were relentless and exhausting times in the Halls of Ironforge. Many died fight off elementals, and other died from the opportunistic foes known as the Dark Iron Dwarves. Though they are allies to us now, I keep a close eye our Dark Iron brethren, from all the years of fighting I have spent against them. Their kind has never been one of valor in my eyes. To me they seek the selfish opportunity for glory.
Enough blabbering from me trying to convince you of who to trust, let’s get back to why you are here. There is a new yet old threat, with the legion attempting to invade Azeroth. This threat is beyond serious and has called for Azeroth’s bravest heros to aid in this campaign. Mr. HandlebarWalrus and myself will be storming the shores of the Broken Isles when the time comes, but for now there are many tasks that require our attention in The Dark Portal. Though the threat of the Warlords are over and Ner’zhul has shipped himself to the Broken Isles, there much that needs tending to.
For the next couple of weeks (if you care to join us), we will be combating the power vacuum that has been created since the Major immediate threats have been concluded. The first location that requires our immediate attention is the land of Gorgrond. The land has become ever more ferocious, and in many cases unchallenged. We must stop this or all of Dreanor will flooded with the many elements that inhabit the forest. If you do intend to join in on this adventure, we will be leaving for Gorgrond in seven days. Bring only necessaities that you can hammer down, or the forest will scoop your belonging right under your feet. Go now and prepare for the next chapter of adventure is about to begin.
