The shadow of a golden feathered vulture soars over the milk-grass of Kun-Lai Summit. The high and bright sun reflected off the defiant snows of the narrow mountain passes. It had been several months since the Warchief had marched to Kun-Lai, but the Horde army still lingered in the frigid passes. The war in the south raged bitterly for weeks and yet, no victory could be found. Even now, the armies of the Golden Lion and the Black Scorpion fan out across Pandaria.
It would not be long before the Warchief's excursion into Kun-Lai would be noticed. Alliance regiments had marched from the Shrine of Seven Stars through the Eternal Vale. Their bright sapphire banners waved defiantly against all odds. Bright plumed helms on thick plate reflected the dying light of a waning sun. Their goal was simple: find the Horde army in the mountains and destroy them.
Horde forces, landing off the northern shores rode swiftly through the mountain passes. Despite the snow and the bitter cold they managed to make camp at the Garrosh'ar Advance. Chieftains, Warlords, Knights, and Covens from all across the dominion gather en masse to claim Kun-Lai as their own. No force will stop and defy them, not even the Alliance.
The vulture circles high and low. Its sharp eyes watch with hungry intent as it eagerly awaits its coming meal. The banners of either faction shift and flap in the wind. Two armies, prepared to clash on the open plains of Kun-Lai ready their weapons of war. The land will tremble under the impossible will of these factions, and blood will seep into the hard tundra soil.
The control of Kun-Lai will fall into the hands of the victors, and the defeated will fill the belly of the carrion birds that circle above. War and its terrible eyes find it necessary to engage in battle here, and all of Pandaria will hear its cry.
On 2/21-2/23rd, a two part battle series will clash amidst the strongest factions of the Alliance and Horde. I would like the server to take part in this dangerous and epic clash on the plains of Kun-Lai and in the mountain passes above.
Event information will follow below:
The Gathering of Banners: Feb 21st at 8pm.
Due to hard blizzard conditions, flying inside the area of Kun-Lai is all but impossible. The Mogu have seized the August Gate. Horde forces will be forced to march south from the Zouchin Province. The Alliance gathering on the far side of the thundra will march east from the Oxgate. Both factions will gather their banners and set up their war-camps at Eastwind and Westwind Rests. The Alliance may either choose to engage them on the march or choose to wait to a more opportune night to engage.
The Battle of the Conquerors: Feb 22nd at 8pm
Horde forces, entrenched in the Garrosh'ar War-camp will march into the tombs of the Ancient Mogu and attempt to capture a remaining relic of considerable power. The relic will allow the Horde the strength to wipe the Alliance from the mountain once and for all. To prevent the Horde and their conquest, riders of the Alliance will ride ahead into the mountain and prepare an ambush and defend of the narrow passes. They must prevent the Horde from scouring the ruins to find the last remaining relic critical to the Horde conquest.
If the Alliance should fail, then all of the strength must be saved for the final battle of Kun-Lai itself to overcome the massive Horde War Machine. If the Horde are unable to secure the relic, then they must suffer a crippling defeat and hope their strength at arms will override the Alliance's gallant resolve.
The Battle of Kun-Lai: Feb 23rd at 8pm
Horde and Alliance forces will clash in the plains between Eastwind and Westwind Rests. In an epic clash of banners each faction will line up and charge face to face in the final battle of Kun-Lai. Depending on the prior night's victory will determine the final outcome of this battle. Prepare for an epic battle!
The victors of the event will drive their rival faction from the field and crush their ability to fight in Pandaria drastically. The bloody battle will ensue for days after the major one, but the vanquished will be ultimately driven from the land.
