So just how did all those Dark Iron warriors end up here, on the doorstep of Ironforge, on the verge of invading our city?
Does not 'Empress' Moira, a member of our esteemed Council of Three Hammers, rule the Dark Iron? This cannot have happened without her knowledge and consent. This was no ragtag band of rebel dwarves, but a well-organized and fully equipped invasion force.
I have prepared a report on the battle for the airfield. Take it to Ironforge, to the High Seat and confront her!
What is the meaning of this intrusion?
And just what is this?
<Moira takes the report and the color drains from her face as she reads.>
This is impossible!
Take Rixa's Flying Machine back to Gol'Bolar Quarry, run south a few yards to Dominic Galebeard, the Gryphon Master, and hop on a gryphon at Gol'Bolar to Ironforge. Run southwest around the Great Forge to the High Seat, where the council is in session.
- Moira Thaurissan says: How dare you storm into my throne room and attempt to spread this conspiratorial nonsense!
- Moira Thaurissan says: I will not let you and this treasonous Commander Stonebreaker steal my son's birthright!
- Muradin Bronzebeard says: That is quite an accusation, Moira. It's hardly your throne room in the first place.
- Muradin Bronzebeard says: I know Commander Stonebreaker and I will vouch for his loyalty and his honesty. We must take his word.
- Muradin Bronzebeard says: What cause do the Dark Irons have for taking up arms against Ironforge? Are you unable to control your own people, Moira?
- Falstad Wildhammer says: Muradin has a point. If you cannot govern your own people, you have no place at this table.
- Moira Thaurissan says: Both of you know I would never order such a thing! Why would I set one half of my son's inheritance against the other?
- Moira Thaurissan says: No, this is the work of a traitor to both our peoples. Despite my best efforts, some Dark Irons remain in the grip of Twilight's Hammer.
- Moira Thaurissan says: The cult must have someone in the city to coordinate this kind of attack. That only leaves one suspect, Ambassador Slaghammer!
- Patch 4.0.3a (2010-11-23): Added.
