One of the things I like most about the Wildfire Riders is that, at heart, we are as much a writing community as we are a gaming community.
While I’ve gotten to take a peripheral spot in a few stories that have gone on so far, I’m taking up as a full member (so to speak) for the first time with the most recent story. It has all the potential of being both epic and tragic – for it is centered around one of the more monumental moments yet in World of Warcraft – the Battle for the Wrathgate. I’ll be posting Aely’s story here in parts, as it goes live on the Riders site (don’t have to worry about spoilers), and while she is somewhat separated from the rest of the Riders and her story stands on its own, keep in mind that what is happening for her is still tied in with what is happening for and with them.
Several of the Riders will show up, notably Tarquin and Jolstraer – so you are warned of accents and apostrophe abuse.
Also, since he comes up at the beginning, Fyodor Gallwick is the commanding officer over recruited companies – and he is NOT happy about the Riders being there, and has threatened both Tarquin and Bricu. As the Riders have a few questionable members and past events, to Fyodor, they don’t belong on the front (Tarquin isn’t known as “the man they couldn’t hang” for nothing). However, his own commanding officer (Fordragon) would not let him throw them out, and so there they are, in a camp in the mountains, preparing to support the flanks of the Seventh Legion of the Alliance Army.
The first part of the story will go up soon, and takes place the evening before the battle itself. You can see all of the posts in this story on the Story Archives page, by searching for the Wrathgate category, or through this link.
