AZEROTH: YEAR 35
In January of 2021, a group of dedicated role-players came together to collaborate on an extremely ambitious project: write the story of what was happening on Azeroth during the Shadowlands expansion, and develop an entire year of weekly server events.: The Year of the Scourge.
What we ended up with was not only one of the most active years for role-play for many involved, but also an incredible sense of community with over 90 people on our discord server and participation of regularly 20+ at our weekly events, totalling 49 primary campaign events and countless side-missions, was nothing short of amazing!
The Year of the Scourge has now come to an end, as the three commanders leading the New Scourge have been defeated and our brave heroes have been recognized and honoured.
But there are many loose ends to tie up all around Azeroth, and our coalition of allied forces are ready to take up the cause.
As we archive our other forum thread at over 13K+ views, we cannot wait to use this new Master Thread to share our adventures with you, and provide not only World Update Posts to give others an active setting to role-play in, but also an opportunity for new characters to join us in our adventures all around the world.
So follow us, or join us, for a brand new year of content!
Our community is one made up of brave heroes and guilds from many nations, working together cooperatively. They are more dedicated to helping and healing Azeroth, and leave the faction conflicts at the door. We welcome characters and guilds from the Alliance and the Horde, and ones more neutral, to join in our collaborative efforts.
The use of Elixir of Tongue and Cross-RP addon help us run smooth events.
Our discord server is the absolutely best way of staying in the loop about planned events and updates to our story. Anyone is welcome to join here: https://discord.gg/NsBR4ue9dY
World Update Posts (Opt-in, always)
One of the key goals of our journey is to make Azeroth feel alive as it evolves and faces new issues. ON a regular basis, we will provide World Update posts: these will describe the current situation and climate in one of Azeroth’s many regions, helping to add to the ambiance and setting for anyone choosing to role-play there, with or without our group.
We may describe Westfall as being devastated by the Scour incursions in the area over the last year, with very many farms destroyed or blighted. Many in the area suffer from famine as a result. There is a sense of urgency to re-build as the area provides much of the food for the people of the kingdom of Stormwind.
As a reminder: these posts are entirely opt-in and no one in our group expects everyone on Wyrmrest Accord to adopt it as server-lore. We simply wish to be as open and inviting as possible and help foster more role-play in the old world of Azeroth.
Where do will our story go?
While the admin and leadership team is still working out the final details of our future campaigns, one thing we know is that our story will take us all over old-world Azeroth: Kalimdor, Eastern Kingdoms, the Broken Isles and Pandaria will be the settings for multi-week campaigns and investigations as we tie up many loose ends from the previous year.
If your character or guild calls one of these areas home, or are travellers who might just happen to be in these areas when we are, feel free to join our discord server (above) to see how you can get involved!
As we enter a brand new year and anxiously await any word on World of Warcraft’s next expansion focus, we are committed to providing a quality role-play environment and opportunities for the dedicated players who are still here and who have remained or are returning to Azeroth. May we help each other grow and prosper and always remember that we are in this together…
