Introduction Edit

Written by - Restoration/Valindras - Emerald Dream US

The Lich King of the Scourge lies defeated, and the ancient Old God of Naz'arak, Yogg-Saron, has been vanquished. The events set in motion by Varimathras' betrayal have begun to wind the machinations of war. With the common threat defeated, The Horde and Alliance clash over territory and false claims of treachery. Gilneas, the long-seceded human nation, becomes the target of these land disputes.

Azeroth ZonesEdit

Pandaria - Panderen Starting Place

Gilneas - Possible Worgen starting place. Gilneas is a human nation located in the peninsula directly south of Silverpine Forest on the continent of Lordaeron. The kingdom was founded following the breaking of Arathor and is ruled by the Greymane dynasty. Besides the peninsula, the kingdom also included the island of Zul'Dare. Gilneas is a large peninsula that juts into the sea south of western Lordaeron. Silverpine Forest lies to the northeast and Kul Tiras awaits across the sea to the south. Lord Genn Greymane never supported the Lordaeron Alliance in the Second War. Thus, after the war, he constructed the Greymane Wall: a massive barrier spanning the entire northern border. The enormous wall barricades Gilneas from Lordaeron. Gilneas does not allow anyone in or out, and none knows what has been transpiring there since the end of the Second War.

Kul'Tiras - Over one thousand years ago, the city-state of Kul Tiras was founded upon a large island west of Khaz Modan and in between Stormwind and Lordaeron. Kul Tiras developed a thriving economy based on fishing and exports. Over the years mighty fleets of merchant vessels were built and they sailed throughout the seas in search of exotic goods to trade and sell. Over the many years the great nation of Kul Tiras thrived on exports of seafood, livestock, lumber, grain, gold, and other artifacts. Also over the years they have developed problems with pirates and raiders on the seas and on the coasts. Murlocs constantly posed a problem to those on the island. These threats, however, have become larger and more serious especially since the Second War all the way to present day.

Tel'Abim - Home of the popular Tel'Abim Banana, the island of Tel Abim can be seen on maps as a large, inaccessible island zone southwest of the Maelstrom and far off the eastern coast of Kalimdor. Not much is known about the island. Lands of Mystery shows the location of this island on a map of the South Seas, which corresponds to an island on the map of Azeroth in World of Warcraft.

Kezan - Goblins are in charge on the Isle of Kezan, making the whole place a swarming cesspool of corruption, chaos, scheming and invention. Several cities exist on Kezan, including the nefarious Undermine, the de facto capital of the goblins’ trade empire. Kezan is a tropical island, and palm trees and other greenery appear in profusion. Kezan’s many ports bustle day and night as merchant ships approach and depart, carrying goods of all sorts to places of all sorts for people of all sorts. Kezan is a valuable way station between the eastern and western lands, and almost all travelers stop here, whether traveling by ship or gryphon or more esoteric means. The island is the heart of the goblins’ mercantile efforts, pumping trade throughout Azeroth.

The Broken Isles - Islands noted in Warcraft 2 & 3 Lore

Zandalar - Zandalar is the island homeland of the Zandalar Tribe, and all other tribes of Azeroth. It is located somewhere in the South Seas and the capital city is Zuldazar. It is the center of Troll civilization in the world currently. It is a solid center with its satellite stronghold of Zul'Gurub (in Stranglethorn Vale), and Zul'Aman (in Ghostlands, North-East Lordaeron), the trolls aim to retake their former lands and recreate their ancient empire

The MaelstromEdit

Naz'jatar - Nazjatar is the great capital of the Naga built into the abyssal trench on the sea bed beneath the swirling waters of the Maelstrom. It is here most Naga dwell and their Queen, Azshara, holds court within a beauteous palace even larger than her former home on land.

Gishan Caverns - North of the Rift is a series of enormous caverns in the seafloor. Volcanic activity is responsible for these caverns, and the naga avoid them — they believe that gargantuan sea creatures dwell within.

The Drowned Reaches - Located on the southeastern edge of the Boiling Terrace, the Drowned Reaches is a great ships’ graveyard. Since 10,000 years ago, ships that run afoul of the Maelstrom are caught in its whirlpool and sucked downward, and the currents rip them asunder and deposit their remains here. Because the sailors die in fear and agony and are surrounded by the Maelstrom’s unstable influence, the dead often do not find peace. The zombified and skeletal remains of these unfortunates wander the Boiling Terrace, raging at their fate. The naga fear the undead and avoid this area; so far, they have managed to avoid outright conflict with the millennia-strong drowned men and women

The Rift - The Rift is the remains of the first Well of Eternity. At the end of the War of the Ancients, the powers released in the Well of Eternity blasted the well downward into Azeroth's molten core. 10,000 years later that core is still exposed. The well's descent broke an enormous fissure in the ocean floor. The red and orange light from lava is visible deep, deep down. It is held sacred by the Naga, who are capable of reaching its depths. The seafloor around The Rift is noted for its thermal activity. Nazjatar is constructed on the sides of the Rift.
