The midday sun was shining down on Elwynn Forest just like any other summer day. A light breeze was flowing through the trees giving a minor respite to the inhabitants of the forest. The sound of birds singing echoing through the area could be heard by all. It seemed like just another day in the kingdom of Stormwind.
Suddenly the air sizzled with magic electrical energies. A thunderous noise could be heard from all around as the earth shook violently. One could barely make out cries of scared citizens in the distant town, Goldshire. In the distance the terrifying visage of a doomguard slowly made it's way through the unprepared forest denizens.
"Azeroth has cowered too long under our shadow! Now, feel the power of the Burning Crusade, and despair! Tremble now before the might of Highlord Kruul!" the demon exclaimed as he sauntered through the forest. His horns protruded from his head like two onyx troll tusks both the size of a large man. Its skin was golden brown like fresh baked bread with giant leathery, black webbed wings so large that they threatened to swallow herds of cows in one swoop. Not to mention those eyes, the eyes that were a piercing fiery red that one look at them and you could feel your spirit drain from your body.
If ever there was evil incarnate this creature surely could be described as such. Droves of the greatest warriors and spellcasters assaulted the doomguard with such fervor it would make the old gods cower. But even their martial prowess was not enough to turn aside the evil monstrosity before the city gates of Stormwind. One by one rendered incapacitated as if they were merely insects to the Highlord. "Cower, little worms! Your heroes are nothing! Your saviors will be our first feast!" he stated as the number who dared oppose him dwindled with each passing second. "Where? Where are the Shards! You cannot hide them from us! Your fate is sealed, Azeroth! I will find the Aspect Shards, and then you will not stand against our might!"
And as suddenly as he had come, he left just the same. As if our fair city was not worthy of his effort. The demon mentioned the Aspect Shards...the Dragon Aspect Shards. Items of such immense power that helped protect our world. The demons had reopened the dark portal from Draenor, the homeworld of the Orcish Horde, in search of these shards.
This could not be allowed to pass, this new invasion of the Burning Legion must be stopped at its source. It was then that I knew I must heed the call to arms set forth by, Regent Lord Bolvar Fordragon and traverse through the dark portal to do my part for Stormwind, the Alliance...for all of Azeroth. May the light guide and protect us all.
