The Dusk Watch (Lvl 25 RP/PvP)

Arthas. Illidan. Sargeras.

Mention these names and you'll find a hundred heroes ready to claim the glory of defeating them. Men and demons of nightmare, these names represent a danger to all and everything...

But, what about your other nightmares?
The one's that hit closer to home?

What of the Orcs who raid farm and countryside? The Undead and their new plaque, the Blood Elves and their careless abuse of magic...what about all of your fellow “heroes” who stand by and watch as the Horde enters their main cities unchallenged? That pillage their outlying towns without recompense?

Of these constant nightmares, whom of these grand heroes claim the less brilliant heroism? The grueling, un-graceful fighting between the farms and streets of our homes and the homes of our families?

The Dusk Watch challenges these nightmares.

We claim the truer glories, we claim the gritty victories brushed off in favor of a shinier, more glory filled dream. We claim substance. The mug passed around between honest friends after a long, and satisfying engagement. The quiet triumphs. The farm saved so it can continue to feed our 'glorious' and far-off heroes. The comrades earned though countless battles. The bloody fights no one will write ballads of...

...the Stormwind raid laid to ash in the streets.

It begins in cities and towns, wherever the banners of the Alliance fly. Here the Dusk Watch seeks to challenge and end the Horde's freedom, to sow seeds of fright. To return the notion that the army to fear, isn't just the massive one. We seek also to protect the land, and the younger heroes who travel there...those that one day might end our generation's greatest evils. Hired for various jobs, where a territory under trouble requires the help of a quick force, the Dusk Watch will make themselves available to any traveler upon the land...and be paid, handsomely, for their time.

To this end, The Dusk Watch requires those of skill and heart, a worthy and tenacious force to answer and end the Horde's transgressions. It is not something ONE of us can do, though skilled and prepared we might be. We need teamwork, communication, dedication, trust...ferocity.

The Horde are NOT our friends.
We must shatter this pitiful dream. Drag it screaming out into the dusk of truth. We tolerate their existence until we gain sufficient power to obliterate them from the face of Azeroth, leaving nothing but old bones and the nightmares only children believe. They want to be legends? Let's make them so. Let future generations pick at their bones and imagine what hellish creatures such animals might have been.

We will meet them upon battlefields wherever they are formed; from the streets of our own cities to the plains and forests and mountains between them. We will fight any and all who seek to untie Horde and Alliance. Such weakness only dooms us all. “Peace” has gained us nothing but time, time the Horde has used to prepare and train for a final fight. We are fools not to do the same.

As King Varian Wrynn said so well, “ We have lost some of our greatest heroes to "peace." Let us see what battle brings...”

Dusk has fallen.
The selfish extremes of simple light and shadow have no more place in the world.

Let us remind the Horde they do not own the night.

((A sizable force of Horde under the banner of the Grim attacked Ironforge today, and failed.

Many thanks to all of the people who joined our raid from Trade, and helped us defend our city.))

((This Thursday the Dusk Watch took other RP/PvPers and went into Thunderbluff. After over 30 minutes of little reaction from the Horde, we invited about 4 more Alliance from trade, summoned them out there, and got them their Baine Bloodhoof Achievement.))

THE ALLIANCE FIGHTS BACK

After months on end of weekly assaults by the Grim's forces, as well as irregular strikes from other various groups, the Alliance has had enough. We are not some small child to be bullied for our lands and lives like they are candy. In the past few weeks the Horde have found itself hard pressed to assault our homes. Now they will find it difficult to protect theirs.

We first moved around the city, looking to bring forth the same criminals that had unjustly assaulted our cities. But nobody came to the aid of the cows.

Finally, the Dusk Watch, Ironforge Regiment, Invictus Sanctum, and Ivory Protectorate, along with some irregulars stood together and pushed Baine Bloodhoof and his Honor Guard into full retreat. In the middle of the Tauren's Capitol, we were barely opposed as we struck at the Leader of the Tauren people.

As Captain of the Dusk Watch I, Sir Urivial Beckett am astounded and appalled at the defense the Horde put forth for their bovine allies. It is rather telling to the state of the Horde when they cannot protect the race that turns out their healers, and some of their strongest warriors physically.

As a final message to any Horde who might read this, I want you to understand one thing. This is very important that you know this. We Will Not Go Quietly Into The Night. We will do whatever we must to defeat, and if need be, destroy your capability to make war. This is your one, and final warning.

Sincerely,
Sir Urivial Beckett, Captain of the Dusk Watch.

*Papers with this writing on it were strewn across Alliance Cities, Horde Cities, and neutral cities alike. For the Alliance, it was meant as a rallying cry. For the Horde, it was meant as a warning. Anyone else who read it needs to pick a side soon, before the lines become more blurred than they already are.*

Today our third Alliance Seminar took place. Here are some screenshots.

A couple hours after this event, the Dusk Watch escorted a shipment of Alliance Goods through Stranglethorn Vale. Luckily the Horde were nowhere to be found ((All doing ICC ;P))

Instead, Pirates attacked us, people we thought were friends! Allies! We fought in three war games over the bridge in Blade's edge arena, to represent the Bridges we were fighting on in the actual world. The Watch prevailed in the end, and won the night, delivering our shipment safely. A small snapshot of our party of Caravan Defenders.

THE ALLIANCE FIGHTS BACK PT.2

The Grim's strike at our fires soundly rebuffed Sunday, the Alliance once more looked towards the Offensive. Our last attack a resounding success, we hoped to duplicate the effect. And we did. The Undead Abominations that call themselves Forsaken make their home in the sewers of a once great Human Civilization. Quite fitting. This very eve we struck at this "Undercity" with all the force we could muster!

http://i46.tinypic.com/23vksg4.jpg

In the Military Quarter as the undead call it, we came across human captives being slaughtered. We of course took down their evil captors and helped them escape to safety!

http://i47.tinypic.com/vspabr.jpg

Moving onto the Magic Quarter, we found numerous rune circles for terrible demonic summoning! Do the Forsaken's evil know no bounds? We quickly dispatched these circles and their tenders, moving up the stairs and taking down the portal operators as well.

http://i46.tinypic.com/14j9jxk.jpg

We moved onto the rogue's quarter, fighting numerous Deathguards as well as other Horde terrorists as we went. We cleared out this quarter, lighting up the shadows and taking down those who would hide in them.

http://i48.tinypic.com/2qlr0ht.jpg

Finally we went down into the Apothecarium, where the vile undead create their plagues. We freed more Alliance captives and destroyed hundreds of suspect samples! Hopefully the Undead's ability to make plague will be seriously hampered for a little while at the least.

We had a bit more Horde resistance this week then we did last week, which to be honest causes me great dismay! The Horde are willing to protect monsters that commited atrocities like SOUTHSHORE, but they lift barely a hand in defense of the Tauren, some of their strongest fighters?! In the end though, resistance was futile. We destroyed numerous Forsaken supplies, and crippled their warmachine tonight. I thank all who attended, and to those Alliance, or Neutrals out there who sit on the fence, unwilling to attack? I ask you this. Will you sit stationary for years while the Horde loom above your heads as Southshore did? Tonight we avenged Southshore. Do not make us avenge you as well.

To the Horde: You are weak, and we are strong. I ask you to waste yourselves against our defenses. I ask you to continue breaking under our assault. For that is all you can do.

Sincerely,
Sir Urivial Beckett, Commander of the Dusk Watch

((OOC Info: Had a lot of fun tonight. Went to SMC after this attack OOCly, and was pleasently surprised the Horde got their stuff together. The jumping all over the place when you guys retaliated made it really hard to get our two raids together for an actual brawl though, so that was slightly disappointing :( Still, thanks for showing up to defend, all of you Horde.))

THE ALLIANCE FIGHTS BACK!

After a rather sad showing made by the Alliance across the forests of Azuremyst Isle on Sunday, we rallied on Thursday, for an assault on Bilgewater Harbor! Azshara was once a beautiful land, populated with peaceful Night Elves! Until the Goblins settled there, turned the land mass into the Horde symbol, a symbol of hatred and tyranny, and made a mockery of the once spectacular lands! Well no more!

http://i46.tinypic.com/vde4wz.jpg

We made our way into the city, encountering little true resistance! Only to find the tavern full of drunk passed out guards! The excess of the Horde knows no bounds.

http://i46.tinypic.com/24e48c6.jpg

Making our ways to the docks, we moved onto the boat, putting down any goblin that got in our way, and dismantling several key components of the boat. As a Grandmaster Gnomish Engineer, I can tell you, fellow Alliance that that machine of war will not plague us for many more months.

http://i50.tinypic.com/35j06ea.jpg

http://i46.tinypic.com/2a0b81d.jpg

Moving inside the control room for the goblin's giant cannon smack dab in the middle of Bilgewater, we set about demolishing the pieces in place that made it function. This is an effort the Dusk Watch has worked on for months. If we have our way, the goblins will never finish their super weapon.

http://i50.tinypic.com/o93f5u.jpg

Finding this huge explosive device just laying around, most likely to be used as ammo for the giant cannon, some might say it would be poetic justice to use it to destroy the goblins and their little city. But we of the Alliance are not the villians. We are not evil. Instead, this bomb was dismantled by our expert engineer, the ArchCode-Gnome. Down into base components that we hope to someday use for things that promote life, not death.

I implore you Alliance. Step up and stand tall and proud as we do. Together, we will end the Horde's ability to make war on our lands, and their own.

Many thanks go to the Alliance organization Rooks, for their generous assistance in our latest endeavour. I hope more of the Alliance take from their example, and help us in our efforts to quell the Horde threat.

Sincerely,
Sir Urivial Beckett, Commander of the Dusk Watch.

((OOC info: Many thanks to Ashenfury for at least trying to rally some Horde to Bilgewater! We also went to Orgrimmar's Valley of Spirits after the IC Bilgewater raid. Got ourselves stomped a few times, but everyone in my raid told me they quite enjoyed it regardless! I consider this event a success!))

THE ALLIANCE TRIUMPHS!

After barely pushing the Horde back from Dolonaar, letting ourselves be beaten to keep our night elven allies alive, the Dusk Watch and it's Alliance allies set it's sights on Orgrimmar... but first, there were other areas to consider.

http://i48.tinypic.com/8vx2dz.jpg

The Crossroads have long sat in the exact center of Horde lands, a trading center for orc, tauren, and troll alike. Today we entered the town... and spent 15 minutes setting fire to it. Those left alive at Crossroads will eventually rebuild, we would expect nothing less. But no horde soldiers will find themselves recieving weapons and armors from the Crossroads today.

http://i49.tinypic.com/2l8bzm1.jpg

Leaving the inhabitants of Crossroads to tend to their dead and wounded, the combined Alliance forces thrust it's way into Razor Hill, destroying anything they could get their hands on, much as they did at Crossroads. After clearing out any horde scum, we were able to relax in their fortress for several minutes before moving on of our own accord. The Horde's defense seems severely lacking...

http://i47.tinypic.com/1fcl8x.jpg

After ransacking Razor Hill, we were ready for our main objective. We overlooked the gates of Orgrimmar before descending...

http://i50.tinypic.com/2vx0f21.jpg

We fought...

http://i50.tinypic.com/3026ezo.jpg

And fought...

http://i48.tinypic.com/n3lnhx.jpg

And fought. We blocked up the front gates of Orgrimmar for an hour and thirty minutes before overwhelming Horde numbers forced us into retreat.

Take heart Alliance! We have more than proved to the Horde, we will not be taken lightly. In the past 4 weeks we have destroyed countless horde weapons, crushed every force we've come across in our assaults. We are making a difference, but we cannot do it by ourselves. We ask you to step up, join us in our fights. Join us as we achieve victory against the Horde Menace.

Yours truly,
Sir Urivial Beckett, Commander of the Dusk Watch

((OOC Info: Well, this was the funnest RP/PvP event we've had yet! Thank you to all of the Alliance who came along! Thank you to all the Horde who fought us, where ever you fought us. Thank you to the Ele shaman that showed up right as one of my people was like "Should we really be on an edge like thi- OH !@#$!" That was a kodak moment.))

The Sudden Assault (RP/PvP)

((The events in this story took place ingame, in an RP/PvP event. This thread is for IC reactions to the event after the fact.))

Grimbles Cogknob was a goblin. He was specifically a goblin engineer that helped with the production of Horde Demolishers. He wasn't a fighter, so when the Alliance came wearing mainly Dusk Watch Tabards, with stony faces and destruction in their hands, he hid. He wasn't expected to fight them after all, his job was to build weapons of destruction!

He hid behind crates for quite sometime. The Alliance forces were pushed back, only to return ten minutes later for more destruction. All of the Horde Demolishers and vehicles under construction were broken and torched. Fire dominated Grimbles' mind as all he could do was stare helplessly at the destruction.

Eventually, it was over. After an hour and fourty-five minutes of what he could only consider the most terrifying moments of his life, there were finally overwhelming Horde reinforcements, that were able to push the Alliance group back, out, and seemingly away.

Grimbles slid from behind his crate carefully, making sure no grunts saw him and accused him of cowardice. He looked around. All his work on the demolishers was undone, all of any goblin's work was undone now. As he moved down the road into the Valley of Honor, trying to stop the tremors in his hands, he looked around.

Bodies littered the Valley of Honor, each time the Alliance pushed in, they'd killed any armored fighter who stood in their way. At the same time there were shaken people like him who were completely untouched. It seemed those who did not fight back were not dealt with. (You naughty bluewallers you ;3)

The Blacksmith area was trashed, the Horde Auction House pilfered. Every weapon Grimbles could see was broken beyond repair, beyond use. All they'd be good for was a melting down into their base minerals. Grimbles Cogknob gaped openly at what he saw.

"M-maybe we shouldn't have joined the Horde..." He muttered to himself outloud as he surveyed the wrecked portion of the Horde city.

There were no fliers this time. The Silence of the Dusk Watch and Commander Beckett might bring more fear then the posturing of before. It was a clear message. The posturing was over, and now the Watch fought to end this war.

((OOC info: I consider this our best Event yet. It's been brought to my attention that my pictures are too large, and I'm too bad to fix that, so I've taken them out and made this solely words. Hope you all enjoy it a bit better.))

The Dusk Watch is always recruiting! The Horde may be a disorganized rabble, but they have the masses to cause death tolls numbering in the thousands quickly, if not efficiently! Join The Dusk Watch today and defend your homes, families, and life!

((Our number of events have tapered off recently, but we still hold a tavern night and an RP/PvP assault weekly. As well as attend the Cathedral Service that Paxon hosts every Sunday!))
