HEAR THE CALL OF ADVENTURE

Introduction

The Citrine Eagle is a paramilitary force within the Alterac Mountains. With the lasting legacy of treachery that plagues the area from the defunct Kingdom of Alterac, the Citrine Eagle seeks to use the area as a staging ground to exemplify the best of humanity, and Alterac has had to offer throughout its history. From the rugged Alteraci in the days of Ignaeus the Trollbane, to the legacy of General Hath, who placed the fate of humanity before any single kingdom; the Citrine Eagle seeks to bring to light these legends of old, and use their legacy as an example of great tenacity and human spirit to better forge a fearsome force of Azerothian protectors to serve wherever a threat may lurk.

Talongrab is the staging ground for Citrine Eagle operations in the Northlands which lies east of Alterac Valley. Once a fief within the old Kingdom of Alterac under the rule of the first Matriarch’s blood, the fief fell into disarry as the Kingdom fell, and the Lords were stripped of their claims. With the onset of war in the valley, and a brewing desire for the Alliance to expand, the lands were reclaimed under Citrine Eagle rule and protection for a new age of pioneers. The area consists of Talongrab, and the Bearlands in the mountains northeast of Strahnbrad.
