<Letter of Intent>
Stepping outside to the stale cold air of the Trisfal Glades, a letter awaits you lying on the ground. You go to reach for the message and a gust of warm air sweeps up the letter. Catching it the air settles. Opening the letter you find a parchment, and a quick glance shows the frantic handwriting of a desperate individual. It reads:
The alliance took what was dearest to me. A fellow combatant in war, and in more peaceful times a partner I would have settled down with.
The day is etched into my brain, almost taunting me. We had been tasked with pushing back a centaur camp that had settled close to the crossroads, becoming a menace to local trade routes. It was a long fought battle, but we came out victorious, yet tired from battle. As the smell of battle settled, a familiar stench filled the air. Before I was able to pinpoint the source of it, I felt a sharp pain enter my side. I looked down to see a poison soaked blade had penetrated a weakened spot in my armor. As I began to black out I watched as the rest of my war group fell at the hands of Alliance assassins.
I awoke in a daze being drug back to camp by a Tauren that had found our bloodied bodies, I was weak from the poisons coursing through me and do not remember much. All that is etched into my brain is looking over to see the lifeless bodies of my brethren, and her lifeless corpse. At this point I lost consciousness, and did not awake for 3 days.
Upon awaking, something has changed in me. My spirit grows vengeful and I have seem to become more sensitive to the elements.
I beg of you, return purpose to my life and give me the means to channel this anger. I would give my life, if it meant the annihilation of the alliance scum that took what was most dear to me.
If I am needed I can be found in Durotar regaining my strength and controlling this new spiritual power that has been gifted to my vengeful soul.
