Trapped in the heart of Queen Azshara's empire with no obvious way home, can the Sentinels find Iyora and her missing Sentinels before the naga do?
A little too late. The Sentinels arrive just in time to find Guardian Iyora Silverhawk and her patrol surrounded, but not before she makes a desperate escape with her charges through the nagas' arcane portal.
A vicious battle. While General Fangterror and several naga persue Iyora through the arcane portal, a rear-guard fights to prevent the Sentinels from doing the same.
Nazjatar. With few supplies, no sign of Iyora, her Sentinels, or their pursuers, where will they go from here?
Azshara is a broken land, with a troubled history, and a cursed name.
It is, as well, part of our ancestral home.
Whatever misbegotten treaty that allowed the Horde to desecrate it for resources is now nullified following their warmongering and unforgivable atrocities against our people.
Although dangerously close to Orgrimmar, Azshara is the key to securing the eastern border of Ashenvale. Thus, our regiment has been ordered to Forest Song to bolster our forces in the region.
From there, as well as the small outpost of Talrendis Point, we will work to undermine the Horde position in Azshara, and confront whatever additional threats that might present themselves.
With luck and perseverance, we may also find old allies to aid us in this endeavor; although hunted and pushed to the brink of extinction by the Horde, mountain giants, furbolgs, hippogryphs, and chimeras still make remote areas of Azshara their home. Some of these may be willing to assist us in our battles.
A ship has been secured to return us to Ashenvale in the coming week. Make any preparations you see fit, as we will soon return to the warfront.
It may be easy to forget, in this time of conflict, that Darkshore is not the only area the Horde threaten on Kalimdor. Our enemies brashly strike up and down the length of the continent, endangering all Kaldorei lands and settlements. It would do us no good to protect Darkshore, but lose the rest of our homelands.
Thus, have received our new marching orders from General Feathermoon: Our regiment is soon to begin its traditional march across western Kalimdor, from Astranaar in Ashenvale to Feathermoon Stronghold in Feralas.
We will depart from Astranaar on the 30th day of this month. This trek will be by ground routes only, so expect to be away from Ashenvale for several weeks.
Make certain you have prepared enough equipment and supplies for an extended journey, and that your nightsabers are in fine and fit condition. Along the way we will be stopping at various Kaldorei towns and outposts, giving them whatever aid they may require. We will also take any opportunity to strike at Horde forces we encounter, to remind them--most-painfully--that these are Night Elf lands.
Be it known, Sentinels, that this march is no light-hearted holiday excursion. You can expect training exercises, patrols, instruction, and even combat missions.
All questions may be forwarded to myself or any of the Cadre's officers.
Again you are called upon to advance on the enemies of your people.
The time and occasion are deemed opportune by your Commander to address you a few words of confidence and caution. You have been organized, strengthened, and fully equipped. You form part of the Grand Sentinel Army, the whole under the direction of the able and distinguished General Feathermoon, who enjoys the confidence of our people and her soldiers. Your movement being in co-operation with other forces, both from within the army and without, it is of the utmost importance that no effort be left unspared to make it successful.
Sentinels! The eyes of the Kaldorei people are looking with anxious hope to the blow you are about to strike in the most sacred cause that ever called Sisters to arms.
Remember your homes and your loved ones, and bear in mind that the sooner your enemies are overcome the sooner you will enjoy the benefits and blessings of peace. Bear with patience the hardships and sacrifices you will be called upon to endure.
Have confidence in your officers and in each other. Keep your ranks on the march, your discipline on the battlefield, and let each Sister earnestly implore Elune's blessing, and endeavor by her thoughts and actions to render herself worthy of the favor she seeks.
With clear consciences and strong arms, actuated by a high sense of duty, fighting to preserve Kalimdor and the traditions handed down to us--if true to ourselves--victory, under Elune's blessing, must and will attend our efforts.
