Forgive me for the method of sending this message. My shadow mages in Alterac are intent on their tasks, forcing me to use a foreign messenger -- conscripted from our new "allies" -- to bring you this report. But I have encrypted this letter with one of our most esoteric ciphers. Its words are safe from these yokels.
Our plans progress well; as mentioned, we made an alliance with a group of humans who call themselves the Syndicate. Its leaders were once the nobles of Alterac and they crave to once again hold sway here.
And so they have struck a bargain with us. A bargain they will regret.
Today the Syndicate holds little power in these lands, but they know the area well and have assembled sufficient manpower for the tasks ahead. With proper guiding I am confident that soon, the Syndicate will again rule Alterac.
In addition, we have urged the Syndicate to aim for the city of Stromgarde in the nearby Arathi Highlands. The city is a battlefield between our forces, ogres and the humans of Stromgarde, but we feel that with careful tactics we will own this once great city.
And when this is done, the next stage of our plan may begin. With a nation of our own and a base of power in this region, we may then prepare the way for the Third Host.
Soon, the Legion Lords will reward our works by raining fire from the skies once again!
In Sargeras' Name,
- Patch 4.0.3a (2010-11-23): Removed.
