Northern Kul Tiras
When the Third War began, Duke Falrevere, a human naval officer of Kul Tiras, was at sea with one of his battleships. A gryphon rider found him and the small fleet with which he sailed; the dwarf told him of the war and begged him to come to the assistance of Drisburg, on the northern coast of Kul Tiras. Falerevere, who was a staunch believer in human supremacy above the other races, sneered at the dwarf but agreed, and put his sail to the wind.
Upon sighting Drisburg, the duke saw that the Scourge had landed a small army on the coast and laid siege to the town. The defenders fired catapults and a few cannons at their besiegers, but there was little they could do. Falrevere calculated, and came to the conclusion that if he landed and fought the Scourge, Drisburg would have about a 50% chance of surviving the onslaught, but most of its people, and Falrevere's people, would die. Many of Drisburg's citizens were gnomes and dwarfs immigrants from Ironforge. Falrevere's choice was clear. He turned his ships around and bid goodbye to the doomed settlement. Many of his crew members railed against this action. Falrevere threw the loudest overboard.
