The State of Lakeshire - A [14] Messenger to Stormwind

Delivered to General Marcus Jonathan:

My Lord,

War is upon us. Doom harkens from our doorstep.

As Magistrate of the township of Lakeshire it is my duty to report the recent Military activity that has taken place in His Majesty's Easternmost colony.

Contained within these pages you will find an account of the State of Lakeshire, nestled within the Redridge Mountains.

The loss of Stonewatch Keep was very grave. In previous reports I detailed for you the alliance between the Blackrock Clan of Orcs and the Warlock known as Morganth. The Blackrock Orcs fought with horrific savagery, undoubtedly fueled by the evil magic of Morganth. Many of His Majesty's most valiant soldiers perished trying to defend the Keep but ultimately nothing could be done.

Oddly enough, Morganth turned on his Orcish cohorts shortly after their wretched victory. The Warlock constructed an arcane tower in the Northeast, and has used his powers to build a small army of Shadowhide gnolls to serve his malicious biddings. Both Orc and Man have fallen victim to the viscous brutes that serve the Warlock. As to what betrayal took place between Morganth and Gath'Ilzogg, the Blackrock Warlord, one can only speculate at this point.

To our peril, the foul Orcs seem more concerned with the demise of His Majesty's good citizens. In the last fortnight the Blackrock Clan staged a ruthless offensive on Lakeshire. Many brave men lost their lives that grim day. The Orc forces advanced with such speed and fury that the bridge spanning Everstill was brought to ruin. Our war supplies have greatly dwindled. We lack bandages to mend the wounds of the fallen.

Now I ask of His Majesty to support the good people of Lakeshire in this time of need. We are in need of new soldiers to defend the territory as well as new instruments of war to replace those lost on the battlefield. Food and building supplies run low as well. Please, my Lord, help us keep the final bastion between Man and wretched Orc thriving. The Enemy must be kept out of the Kingdom of Stormwind.

I fear a greater and darker evil brewing in the cauldron of corruption that the Northlands have become. It is imperative that the Kingdom of Stormwind take action lest we seek to become fading memories to the living or slaves to the Enemy.

The General's response - A [14] Messenger to Stormwind

Honorable Magistrate Solomon:

I mourn alongside with you for the dead. I shall see to it personally that the King is made aware of the situation and it is my fondest hope tha I can bring reinforcements to Lakeshire. His Majesty has been scarce of late and acts rather oddly. I share this with you in confidence.

Until then,

General Marcus Jonathan
Kingdom of Stormwind


Solomon's Plea to Westfall - A [14] Messenger to Westfall

Delivered to Gryan Stoutmantle:

Lord Stoutmantle—

The Township of Lakeshire humbly requests the aid of your Militia. As I write this, we find ourselves under siege from both the Blackrock Orcs and Morganth's Shadowhide gnolls. I would not send bidding if our situation was not severe. We await aid from Stormwind but until such help arrives, I beg of you to lend support Once the Kingdom is breeched, all of Humanity is in peril.

Magistrate Solomon

Stoutmantle's Response to Solomon - A [14] Messenger to Westfall

Your Honor—

All of Westfall mourns for your loss. But we are plagued with our own war in Westfall. The farmers have been run off by thieves and mechanical golems. Stormwind withdrew its troops, leaving the people defenseless. I mustered the People's Militia in the wake of Stormwind's abandonment to save what remains of this land. To take the Militia to Redridge would mean certain doom for Westfall.

My regrets, Gryan Stoutmantle


Solomon's Plea to Darkshire - A [18] Messenger to Darkshire

Delivered to Lord Ello Ebonlocke:

Lord Ebonlocke—

The Township of Lakeshire humbly requests the aid of the Night Watch. We are under siege from both the Blackrock orcs and Morganth's Shadowhide gnolls. I would not send bidding if our situation was not severe. We await aid from Stormwind but until such help arrives, I beg of you to lend support. Once the kingdom is breached, all of humanity is in peril.

Magistrate Solomon

Ebonlocke's Response to Solomon A [18] Messenger to Darkshire

Your Honor—

I regret to inform you that the Night Watch is unable to leave its post in Darkshire at this time. Perhaps you were unaware that Stormwind no longer provides military support in this region. The Night Watch has been formed and trained entirely by the people of the forest in order to defend Darkshire in Stormwind's absence. Without the Watch, the town would fall. I wish you luck with your plight.

—Lord Ello Ebonlocke
