Agents of the Forsaken uncovered an Alliance plot to establish new bases here in the Eastern Plaguelands, at abandoned towers throughout the area.

It is imperative that we not allow them to establish a significant presence on our eastern borders, and so we must stave off this Alliance incursion. Our current plans are to drive them out of any towers they may have already seized, and occupy those that we have under our control against further attacks.

This is good news, <name>. It will be a constant struggle here in the Plaguelands until we have fully driven back the forces of the Alliance.

Until that day, I hope that we will have your continued assistance.
