A nearby seabird sqwarked overhead as quiet talk wafted over the group. Several checked and rechecked their battle gear as they waited for orders.
Additional Alliance aid had been requested from the Al'shar lo Dor'ano days prior. Their enemy Nyx, a horde group that Al'shar had a long history of encounters with in the past, had engaged them heavily upon the battlefield weeks earlier. What had exactly started the conflict between the groups was uncertain. Rumors of a dwarven tablet that had been found seemed to be the behind the urgency of these battles.
None the less, the Al'shar were called to arms and stood by their allies.
The Alliance groups made their way towards Warsong Hold. Information had come to light that the Nyxian general was being held inside the massive structure. The opportunity was ripe and group rode forth in an attempt to capture and/or kill their General and delivery a swift blow to the Nyxians.
Unfortunately the defense at Warsong was strong. Horde guards swooped down upon the group in a flurry followed by the members from Nyx who. It was a strategic challenge trying to make it through the gates. Eventually it was realized that the front was impenatrable and a call to retreat was made.
Nyx, infuriated by the assault, made a counter attack upon Valiance Keep. The initial wave was successfully defended. However, the battle was fierce and there were many losses on Alliance side as the evening drew late. The Nyxians managed an upper hand and pushed further into the Keep, destroying much of the insides as they lay wasted to everything in their path.
Bloodied and beaten back, the Alliance forces retreated to tend to their wounded while the leaders of each clan restrategized on how to deal with Nyx's brute force for the next battle.
