[A] The Redridge Brigade

Moon Guard
"There is no substitute for victory in the Redridge Brigade. We Redridgian’s, who bleed blue and yellow, have known nothing more than the irrefutable service to the King, to his city, and his people. Today is the day we lift our swords, and honor the work of our forefathers. Today is the day we take back our homeland of Redridge from the pilfering Blackrock Orcs, and from the decisively vulgar and cruel Shadowhide Gnolls. Today is the day we take responsibility for the future of this rich red soil that has offered us nothing but its affections."

~Captain Joelarshan Horatio, addressing the people of Lakeshire.


The Lakeridge Estate was once that of great pride for the denizens of Lakeshire. Before Lakeridge Highway was overrun by gnolls and orcs, the road led all the way to the looming Estate, which was always complemented by a blazing golden sun. Lakeridge Estate had been home to generation after generation of House Horatio members.

The Lakeridge Estate was erected by Lord Albanus Balfour Horatio, a grand warrior and Knight of Stormwind. He and his wife, Lady Cecilia Rayne-Horatio saw to its creation and lived in it for many years, along with their children, Scholar Cletus Damion Horatio and Lady Edweena Horatio-Lightgaard. They were benefactors of the Redridge Brigade, as well of strong supporters of Lakeshire in general. They often rented out minor cottages on the estate to the penniless of Lakeshire, and assisted the people of Redridge in any form that they could.

Upon entering the First War, Lakeridge Highway was frequented by soldiers going to and fro. The Estate served as a convalescent home to the wounded men and women fighting for Stormwind.

After Stonewatch Keep was taken over by the orcs, the Highway fell into misuse, and eventually it became overrun with gnolls. The people of Lakeshire stopped frequenting the estate, and soon the militia stopped patrolling it in general, seeing as they were losing too many men to the gnolls. House Horatio was forced into hiring its own separate brigade to patrol Lakeridge Highway and Estate.

Thus, The Redridge Brigade was born! The Brigade promised warmth, food, and money to those who joined its ranks. Not only did the Brigade protect Lakeridge, it patrolled Redridge in its entirety, and soon merged ranks with Lakeshire’s miltia.
