Transcript

Prelude

The orcs' ships lie scattered and wrecked along the coast of the Barrens. Thrall is seen standing on the nearby shore with some Grunts and Headhunters.
IconSmall Orc Male.gif Grunt: Warchief, our ship sustained heavy damage when we passed through the raging maelstrom. It's unsalvageable.
IconSmall Thrall.gif Thrall: I knew it. Can we confirm our location? Is this Kalimdor?
IconSmall Orc Male.gif Grunt: We traveled due west, as you instructed. This should be it.
IconSmall Thrall.gif Thrall: Very well. Has there been any sign of Grom Hellscream or the other ships?
IconSmall Orc Male.gif Grunt: No, Warchief. Not since we got separated.
IconSmall Thrall.gif Thrall: Hmm. Prepare to move out. If our comrades did make it here, we should be able to find them along the coast.

During game

  • IconSmall Orc Male.gif Grunt: We should check these crates for valuable supplies!

  • IconSmall Orc Male.gif Grunt: This is one of our ships, Warchief. It must have been smashed against the rocks in the storm.

IconSmall Orc Male.gif Grunt: A great battle took place here. The clay is red with flesh blood.
IconSmall Thrall.gif Thrall: Is there nothing in this land but dust and carnage?

  • IconSmall Thrall.gif Thrall: Those hideous creatures have the bodies of horses! Lok-tar Ogar!

IconSmall Thrall.gif Thrall: Those pig creatures are unlike anything I've ever seen before.
IconSmall Orc Male.gif Grunt: At least they're prettier than the humans.

  • IconSmall Troll Male.gif Troll Headhunter: Thanks for saving us, mon. We should hurry. The pig-men say there were other ships nearby!

  • IconSmall Thrall.gif Thrall: The horse men are slaughtering those bull creatures! I led us here to escape senseless conflict. Now, it seems, we're surrounded by it.

IconSmall Orc Male.gif Grunt: Throm-ka, Warchief. We knew you'd find us!
IconSmall Thrall.gif Thrall Throm-ka, warrior. I'm glad you are all safe. Were you part of Hellscream's group?
IconSmall Orc Male.gif Grunt: No Warchief. We were separated in the storm. We only just arrived.

  • IconSmall Thrall.gif Thrall: The horse men look as if they're dressed for war.

IconSmall Orc Male.gif Grunt: Throm-ka, Warchief.
IconSmall Thrall.gif Thrall: Well met, warrior. Has there been any sign of--
IconSmall Troll Male.gif Troll Headhunter: The horse men are charging! Defend yourselves!
IconSmall Thrall.gif Thrall: Lok-tar! Lok-tar!

Cairne Bloodhoof and a group of tauren burst through some nearby trees to greet the orcs.
IconSmall Cairne.gif Cairne Bloodhoof: I am Cairne, chief of the Bloodhoof tauren. You greenskins fight with both savagery and valor. I am intrigued.
IconSmall Thrall.gif Thrall: I am Thrall, and these are my brethren, the orcs. We've come seeking the destiny promised to us.
IconSmall Cairne.gif Cairne Bloodhoof: Seeking destiny? Hmm. It will find you in time, young one. However, there is an Oracle far to the north which might be able to--
IconSmall Thrall.gif Thrall: North? But there's an army of the horse men marching north.
IconSmall Cairne.gif Cairne Bloodhoof: What? No! My village is in danger!

IconSmall Thrall.gif Thrall: I must know more about this Oracle! Follow them! Protect Cairne at all costs!

  • IconSmall Cairne.gif Cairne Bloodhoof: We've arrived in time! The next wave is advancing!
  • IconSmall Cairne.gif Cairne Bloodhoof: Ah! We could use some help, friends!

  • IconSmall Thrall.gif Thrall: Lok-Narash! Here they come again!

  • IconSmall Cairne.gif Cairne Bloodhoof: Ah, they've brought a champion with them this time!

Epilogue

IconSmall Thrall.gif Thrall: Your tribe is safe, old one.
IconSmall Cairne.gif Cairne Bloodhoof: Thanks to you, young warchief. But the centaur drove off all the game in this region, and I cannot allow my people to starve. Soon, we must head north to the verdant grasslands of Mulgore.
IconSmall Thrall.gif Thrall: And you fear the marauders overtake you.
IconSmall Cairne.gif Cairne Bloodhoof: Yes. The devils' speed cannot be matched upon the plains.
IconSmall Thrall.gif Thrall: Well, if you tell us how to reach the Oracle you spoke of, then my brethren and I will escort you on your march.
IconSmall Cairne.gif Cairne Bloodhoof: I am intrigued by you and your people, young Thrall. You are more than welcome to join us.
