With the destruction of Hammerfall and the retaking of Stromgarde, the Alliance once again has a staging point for retaking the northern Eastern Kingdoms. After journeying south to Stormwind to rally support for the continuation of the war, Thorlin Thunderhammer, leader of the Thunderhammer Army, once again heads to the front of the war. Joined by his powerful allies, The Blitz Mercenaries, and the new Alliance "Army of the North", Thorlin seeks to reclaim lost Alliance territories and bring the war to the Horde's doorstep.
But it wont be quite as easy this time. While they were caught unawares in the initial battle of the war, the Horde have realized the threat from the south and have turned their eyes eastward, awaiting the Alliance. Horde destroyers have began patrolling the seas south of Hillsbrad, and a Forsaken army has been marshaled to fight the Alliance assault coming from the east.
The battlefield has been set, and the wheels of war have been put into motion. All that awaits now is for the deadly game of chess to begin, and for the pieces to fall where they may.
((This is part three of the war campaign that began with "The Highlands" thread. You can join for the Alliance or the Horde, or a neutral party wanting to benefit off the war. You can join as a temporary character, or as an already made character with a biography. You can also join with a faction, but you must post exactly what you are bringing, troop numbers, troop types, etc.
Also there are posting rules. There is no posting order, but if you join the thread you must be able to post at least 2-3 times a week. If you take a position of importance in the thread, and you dont post for 6 days, then you will be GM'ed in a way appropriate to the situation. Also, if you must leave for a period of time, make sure to tell someone in the thread so that the necessary measures can be taken to keep the thread moving until you return.
If a disagreement arises in the thread, please try to settle it maturely rather than just leaving the thread. For any other questions either post in this thread or send me a PM.))
