World of Warcraft Dungeon – Scarlet Monastery

The Monastery was once a proud bastion of Lordaeron’s priesthood – a center for learning and enlightenment. With the rise of the undead Scourge during the Third War, the peaceful Monastery was converted into a stronghold of the fanatical Scarlet Crusade. The Crusaders are intolerant of all non-human races, regardless of alliance or affiliation. They believe that any and all outsiders are potential carriers of the undead plague – and must be destroyed. Reports indicate that adventurers who enter the monastery are forced to contend with Scarlet Commander Mograine – who commands a large garrison of fanatically devoted warriors. However, the monastery’s true master is High Inquisitor Whitemane – a fearsome priestess who possesses the ability to resurrect fallen warriors to do battle in her name.

World of Warcraft Dungeon – Razorfen Kraul

Ten thousand years ago – during the War of the Ancients, the mighty demigod, Agamaggan, came forth to battle the Burning Legion. Though the colossal boar fell in combat, his actions helped save Azeroth from ruin. Yet over time, in the areas where his blood fell, massive thorn-ridden vines sprouted from the earth. The quillboar – believed to be the mortal offspring of the mighty god, came to occupy these regions and hold them sacred. The heart of these thorn-colonies was known as the Razorfen. The great mass of Razorfen Kraul was conquered by the old crone, Charlga Razorflank. Under her rule, the shamanistic quillboar stage attacks on rival tribes as well as Horde villages. Some speculate that Charlga has even been negotiating with agents of the Scourge – aligning her unsuspecting tribe with the ranks of the Undead for some insidious purpose.

World of Warcraft Dungeon – Gnomeregan

Located in Dun Morogh, the technological wonder known as Gnomeregan has been the gnomes’ capital city for generations. Recently, a hostile race of mutant troggs infested several regions of Dun Morogh – including the great gnome city. In a desperate attempt to destroy the invading troggs, High Tinker Mekkatorque ordered the emergency venting of the city’s radioactive waste tanks. Several gnomes sought shelter from the airborne pollutants as they waited for the troggs to die or flee. Unfortunately, though the troggs became irradiated from the toxic assault – their siege continued, unabated. Those gnomes who were not killed by noxious seepage were forced to flee, seeking refuge in the nearby dwarven city of Ironforge. There, High Tinker Mekkatorque set out to enlist brave souls to help his people reclaim their beloved city. It is rumored that Mekkatorque’s once-trusted advisor, Mekgineer Thermaplugg, betrayed his people by allowing the invasion to happen. Now, his sanity shattered, Thermaplug remains in Gnomeregan – furthering his dark schemes and acting as the city’s new techno-overlord.

World of Warcraft Dungeon – Blackfathom Deeps

Situated along the Zoram Strand of Ashenvale, Blackfathom Depths was once a glorious temple dedicated to the night elves’ moon-goddess, Elune. However, the great Sundering shattered the temple – sinking it beneath the waves of the Veiled Sea. There it remained untouched – until, drawn by its ancient power – the naga and satyr emerged to plumb its secrets. Legends hold that the ancient beast, Aku’mai, has taken up residence within the temple’s ruins. Aku’mai, a favored pet of the primordial Old Gods, has preyed upon the area ever since. Drawn to Aku’mai’s presence, the cult known as the Twilight’s Hammer has also come to bask in the Old Gods’ evil presence.

World of Warcraft Dungeon – Shadowfang Keep

During the Third War, the wizards of the Kirin Tor battled against the undead armies of the Scourge. When the wizards of Dalaran died in battle, they would rise soon after – adding their former might to the growing Scourge. Frustrated by their lack of progress (and against the advice of his peers) the Archmage, Arugal elected to summon extra-dimensional entities to bolster Dalaran’s diminishing ranks. Arugal’s summoning brought the ravenous worgen into the world of Azeroth. The feral wolf-men slaughtered not only the Scourge, but quickly turned on the wizards themselves. The worgen laid siege to the keep of the noble, Baron Silverlaine. Situated above the tiny hamlet of Pyrewood, the keep quickly fell into shadow and ruin. Driven mad with guilt, Arugal adopted the worgen as his children and retreated to the newly dubbed ‘Shadowfang Keep’. It’s said he still resides there, protected by his massive pet, Fenrus – and haunted by the vengeful ghost of Baron Silverlaine.

World of Warcraft Dungeon – Wailing Caverns

Recently, a night elf druid named Naralex discovered a network of underground caverns within the heart of the Barrens. Dubbed the ‘Wailing Caverns’, these natural caves were filled with steam fissures which produced long, mournful wails as they vented. Naralex believed he could use the caverns’ underground springs to restore lushness and fertility to the Barrens – but to do so would require siphoning the energies of the fabled Emerald Dream. Once connected to the Dream however, the druid’s vision somehow became a nightmare. Soon the Wailing Caverns began to change – the waters turned foul and the once-docile creatures inside metamorphosed into vicious, deadly predators. It is said that Naralex himself still resides somewhere inside the heart of the labyrinth, trapped beyond the edges of the Emerald Dream. Even his former acolytes have been corrupted by their master’s waking nightmare – transformed into the wicked Druids of the Fang.

World of Warcraft Dungeon – Deadmines

Once the greatest gold production center in the human lands, the Dead Mines were abandoned when the Horde razed Stormwind city during the First War. Now the Defias Brotherhood has taken up residence and turned the dark tunnels into their private sanctum. It is rumored that the thieves have conscripted the clever goblins to help them build something terrible at the bottom of the mines – but what that may be is still uncertain. Rumor has it that the way into the Deadmines lies through the quiet, unassuming village of Moonbrook.

World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade – Hellfire Citadel Instance

On the blasted world of Outland, within the heart of Hellfire Peninsula stands Hellfire Citadel, a nearly impenetrable bastion that served as the Horde’s base of operations throughout the First and Second Wars. For years this gargantuan fortress was thought to be abandoned.

Until recently.

Though much of Draenor was shattered by the reckless Ner’zhul, the Hellfire Citadel remains intact? inhabited now by marauding bands of red, furious fel orcs. Though the presence of this new, savage breed presents something of a mystery, what’s far more disconcerting is that the numbers of these fel orcs seem to be growing.

Despite Thrall and Grom Hellscream’s successful bid to end the Horde’s corruption by slaying Mannoroth, reports indicate that the barbaric orcs of Hellfire Citadel have somehow managed to find a new source of corruption to fuel their primitive bloodlust.

Whatever authority these orcs answer to is unknown, although it is a strongly held belief that they are not working for the Burning Legion.

Perhaps the most unsettling news to come from Outland are the accounts of thunderous, savage cries issuing from somewhere deep beneath the citadel. Many have begun to wonder if these unearthly outbursts are somehow connected to the corrupted fel orcs and their growing numbers. Unfortunately those questions will have to remain unanswered.

At least for now.

World of Warcraft – The Loa gods Lore

The Trolls draw power for their Voodoo Magics by performing rituals and invoking the Primal gods or Forest spirits: the Loa gods.  According to Warcraft RPG: Magic and Mayhem, the Loa spirits are more powerful than the Elementals, but not as powerful as gods.

The Shadow Hunters’ faith and communion with the Loa gods grants them shadow and healing magic and other abilities. Shadow Hunters learn magic that hinders enemies and aid allies, gaining a unique mix of spells that delve into the more occult aspects of the Loa

Among the known Loa gods are:

Shadra – Spider Loa

Shirvallah – Tiger Loa

Bethekk – Panther Loa

Hir’eek – Bat Loa

Mueh’zala
The Tablet of Theka says Mueh’zala is the God of Death.

Loa Zanza
He appears in Zul’Gurub Instance as an ethereal form within one of the many temples. The Arcanums created from the various tomes originated from Troll magic were stolen from Zanza by the High Elves, and used against his people.  The Trolls of Yojamba Isle, the Zandalar Tribe, respect and venerate Loa Zanza.  However, with the rebirth of Hakkar the Soulflayer, these Zandalar Trolls prayed to Zanza to grant powers to heroes of other races to defeat Hakkar in Zul’Gurub.

The Loa Legba
He is a master of swift motion. Through him, the shadow hunter learns to move with great speed granting the ability of Batltle Stride.

Loa Lukou
The Loa of healing and respite, she grants the ability to heal allies with a Healing Wave. With a word, the Shadow Hunter invokes healing with a wave of soothing light.

Loa Ogoun
The Loa of war who grants the Shadow hunter the Hex ability to place dire curses upon his enemies. This Loa ability allows Shadow Hunters to turn an enemy into a frog.

Loa Dambala
The Loa of serpents and treachery, Loa Dambala teaches the shadow hunter to move swiftly and quietly by changing his shape into a serpent or snake. Shadow hunters can change form to serpent or back to normal for an hour or when he wishes to turn back.

Loa Samedi
The Loa of cemeteries and the restful sleep of the dead. The undead are an abomination in his eyes. The shadow hunter can cast Smite againts a undead creature.

Loa Shango
The Loa that controls the realm of storms. Shango guards the secrets of lightning and mayhem. The Shadow Hunter may channel the fury of Shango, unleashing a lighting bolt named Stormspear, that does electricity damage.

A troll in Zul’Gurub calls the name of another who might be another Loa god: Hethiss.  Supposedly a loa of serpents.  However, Ula-Tek is also referred as a serpent goddess.

The Shrine of Ula-Tek is located in Zul’Aman.  Zul’Aman will be an instanced region in World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade.  Zul’Aman is located northeast of Light’s Hope (Eastern Plaguelands) and Southeast of Quel’Thalas.

Troll Tablets

Altar of Zanza
We call upon you, Zanza of Zuldazar.

Thanks Sarakesh
