    OOC: We've had one or two queries regarding the population demographics of New Moonbrook pertaining to racial makeup. We'd like to stress that due to constraints with the NPC models cycling through a limited amount of options we only have a 'set' amount of models for the guards, and workers etc. Please consider reading up on the 'New Moonbrook NPCs' section to find a more accurate breakdown of NPC racial makeup. This applies to CIVILIAN npcs however due to the guards models it is assumed that unless specified through named NPCs (such as Sgt Thorne) these NPCs are comprised of -ALL- Alliance races: Gnomes, Dwarves, Humans (of varying kingdoms), Night Elves, High Elves, Worgen and Draenei. If you have further questions regarding this, don't hesitate to PM the New Moonbrook account (this one)

    Some of the bounties appear to have had alterations made to them: The bounty for Sir Reginald has had a line drawn through it and gone from '55' to '30' The bounty for the eredar demoness has a line drawn through it and gone from '80' to '50' Blackcreek's bounty has also had two lines drawn through it from '100' to '60' for his death and '150' to '110' for his capture. These relevant bounties seem to have the same note attached to them: "By decree of Baron West The bounties for 'Sir' Reginald, 'Lord' Blackcreek and the Eredar demoness have been reduced. This is in most part to these percieved threats having not presented a threat to New Moonbrook or generally to allies and friends thereof recently as such whilst the threat is present it is considered 'low' in the faction's priorities. Those seeking larger payouts for bounties should draw their attention to more recent bounties or check back from time to time."

    "Wanted Dead or Alive Individual(s) responsible for the murder of the Zan'Watha embassy occupants, theft, and usage of dark magics. Following a recent investigation after silence from the embassy, it was discovered by Baron West that the previous occupants of the Zan'Watha embassy had been seemingly assasinated by what is likely to have been a group effort before the embassy was robbed of all valuables and the remains of the trolls were desecrated then used in some unholy ritual which resulted in hostile abominations rising from the remains. Whilst the threat has not been aimed at New Moonbrook or any of its inhabitants, this threat is on the settlement's doorstep and has targeted what was once a close ally to New Moonbrook and so this bounty serves as a preempative strike against those who would consider harm to the friendlier denizens of the Doldrums. The individual(s) responsible are wanted on the following charges: Murder Desecration of corpses Grand Theft Use of forbidden magics* As well as the above atrocities, a single letter has been found stating 'I am back' and signed by 'Heinrich's Bane' Although this has incurred a significant amount of rage from Baron West, it is entirely possible that the perpetrator is utilizing this former knowledge of the warlock known as 'Heinrich's Bane' as a means to lead the investigation down a false path. Those who are undertaking this bounty would do well to consult either Councillor Dothrel of Tordala or Priestess Emily of High Hearth as both have expressed experience and skill in dealing with unholy magics and come highly recommended by Baron West of New Moonbrook. A large amount of supplies at the embassy were also stolen during this incident. This is a large amount of goods which cannot easily be hidden so those looking to investigate should see if any group(s) or other individuals have acquired a large supply of Troll goods as of late. The Baron is intending to cordon off the Zan'Watha embassy until the threat is secured. This area will be an active crime scene and only those who are assisting in the investigations may be allowed access to the settlement. Those wishing for access should speak with Baron West directly. A sum of 100 gold pieces is offered for the head of the individual(s) responsible for the slaughter of the Zan'Watha embassy occupants. A sum of 150 gold pieces is offered for the capture of the individual(s) responsible for the slaughter of the Zan'Watha embassy occupants so that they may be executed publicly in Haven or New Moonbrook. Additional gold is offered on a case-by-case basis for anyone who can provide additional information to Baron West which leads to the capture or execution of the culprits. Alternative rewards can be made via prior arrangement with Baron West of New Moonbrook *Baron West states that even though he is magically numb he was able to sense the strength of the dark magics used during this foul ritual which permeated the building. In addition the abominations appeared to he comprised of parts of the previous occupants of the embassy. Those who ascertain the location of the murderer(s) should inform New Moonbrook post-haste prior to dealing with the threat(s) themselves as New Moonbrook will lend assistance with the bounty with no claim to it.

Wagons laden with goods deposit their supplies adjacent to Baron West's charcuterie and start to assemble them into some sort of 'storage space'. When these workers are questioned by anyone passing by they continue working but talk at the same time. "Wha's this? Oh, th' Baron's bringin' a load o' goods from New Moonbrook to sell to th' folks of the Doldrums." When pressed further as to what goods are available, the workers happily respond: "Oh, all sorts. Food, fabric, arms, armour, metals, gemstones, and more! Ought to pop by and give the stuff a gander yersel'!" The peasant smiles and returns to unpacking crates and stockpiles of timber. OOC: Hi All To help break the current monotany i'm going to host a small trading opportunity. Its effectively a means to get shot of some of New Moonbrook's assorted materials in exchange for gold to pay for some more bounties that are due to go up as well as a few other overheads.

    "Wanted Dead or Alive Lord Blackcreek Wanted for assault upon Alliance soldiers, siezure of king's property and a litany of other crimes! This false Lord is believed to be the one responsible for assaulting Haytham's Landing and ultimately the leader of all the bandit groups based upon Opej'nor and quite possibly others who have yet to be identified. Lord Blackcreek (and by extention those who serve under him) are wanted on the following charges: Murder Attempted Murder Membership of a Hostile Faction Grand Theft Treason Inciting War Waylaying Usage of forbidden magics* Lord Blackcreek has until now been considered elusive and an enigma with not even his name known to the denizens of the Doldrums however thanks to the efforts of a adventurers too many to list here, his name has been revealed and his intentions are slowly becoming unravelled. It is worth noting to any who embark upon this bounty that Lord Blackcreek was seen leaving Haytham's Landing during the assault in which Corporal Osbert of New Moonbrook shot the bandit leader clean through the head and yet this individual seemed uneffected by such. Further to this arcanists who attempted to halt his boat's path found their icy barriers melted away which suggests that Lord Blackcreek is either a highly skilled arcanist himself or has one such individual under his employ. As of now it is assumed that Lord Blackcreek is in fact either a master illusionist or one of the undead and the bounty posted below reflects the perceived danger of this foe. Those who wish to seek out Lord Blackcreek would do well to start with interrogating his own bandit comrades and working up their 'chain of command' until finding relevant information on him. The Bandit Insignias which can be handed in to Sergeant Thorne at New Moonbrook are believed to be the Lord's own personal insignia and he is believed to be a Lord of the northern kingdoms of Azeroth (likely Alterac) rather than that of Stormwind. *During the assault on Haytham's Landing, what were believed to be New Moonbrook prisoners turned out to be dopplegangers of a magical nature. These creatures, when slain, appeared to decompose rapidly into a gooey black substance. One was also seen lighting an explosive device whilst in the presence of Lord Blackcreek's own men which suggests these creatures have -zero- self preservation instinct and an ability to impersonate whosoever they choose. An additional bounty will be posted regarding these foul creatures. A sum of 100 60 gold pieces is offered for the bandit leader's head. A sum of 150 110 gold pieces is offered if the bandit leader is brought back to New Moonbrook alive to face execution. Proof of it being the real Lord Blackcreek will be ascertained upon delivery. Alternative rewards can be made via prior arrangement with Baron West of New Moonbrook Those interested in undertaking this bounty are encouraged to inform Baron West as to the movements of this bandit leader as they will receive the full support of New Moonbrook in ridding the Doldrums of this pest.

    A short line is placed through the number '35' for the reward for Sir Reginald and has been replaced by the number '55' and a small note: "By decree of Baron West The reward for Sir Reginald has increased by 20 gold pieces. This is following reports of a Sotoran warparty having accosted the Flamespire Clan in close proximity to New Moonbrook, the Sotoran threat is ever present and so this reward increase is to hopefully incentivise others to slay this wayward 'knight' - Baron West"

    A poster slowly makes its way around the Doldrums town-by-town from the southern reaches of Opej'nor and the encampment of High Hearth to the settlement of Tordala upon the Isle of Menhirs: "Wanted Dead Unnamed demon sorceress Wanted for numerous crimes including demonic possession of the beast known as the 'Tyrant Queen' upon Opej'nor The location of this demon sorceress, intel informs New Moonbrook that the creature is known as an 'Eredar', is currently unknown. It is known that many factions upon these isles have had dealings or encounters with this being in one form or another. Following recent events it is believed that this sorceress is the one who commanded or was otherwise the 'master' of the Dwarvern Warlock known as 'Heinrich's Bane'. The reward offered reflects the danger of this creature who is not to be taken lightly. Currently the sorceress's death is sought after on the following charges: Murder High Treason Inciting War Magical Corruption of Wildlife Abuse of forbidden magics It is known that the people of Tordala have been particularly plagued by this creature and those seeking the demon's death may also wish to approach them to discuss a possible reward for it's head. Any information pertaining to the location and / or means of killing the creature should be relayed to Baron West with due haste. If this leads to the creature's death there may be an additional reward. A sum of 80 50 gold pieces is offered for the Eredar's head following confirmation from a competant arcanist that aforementioned head is in fact not an illusion"

    Half a year Half a year it has been since the founding of the fledgling settlement of New Moonbrook. Whilst the Orcs relocate to Haven, Drustgarde burns and strife seems to fill the land around them, the golden lion of Stormwind and the Grand Alliance endures. It has not been an entirely smooth sailing so far and this missive in the annals of the settlement's history is somewhat of a 'recap' of events so far as well as highlighting some advances the settlement has made (these are by no means in chronological order) Rescued a large chunk of the Alliance Combined Arms Brigade including their acting commander Corporal Jeremy Thorne. Leo-Lupus pact formed in retaliation to unchecked influence of Haven in terms of possessing artefacts. Currently disbanded. A magus from the Opej magic academy on the north-western shore has been stationed outside the town to observe and work on the arcane rift. Construction of an outpost on the Isle of Kolai following Haytham's destruction of the Razorbranch has commenced, it has been named 'Haytham's Landing' in his honor. 'Sir' Alistair Roux of Egtown has been working hard to complete a number of bounties aimed at dealing with threats to New Moonbrook. Coporal Thorne is now a questgiver within the town dealing with the bandit problem on Opej. Haytham's Landing lost to bandits. Multiple wounded, no dead from New Moonbrook. Corporal Thorne received a promotion due to his loyalty to New Moonbrook and persistence in taking action against local threats. He is now Sergeant Thorne Private Garret stationed at Haytham's Landing was promoted to Corporal Garret for quick thinking in escorting his comrades and covering them whilst they fled back to Haven. Construction has begun on a foundry intended to produce firearms en masse for protection as well as producing cannon for defence. Construction on the New Moonbrook bathhouse has been completed, allowing residents access to hot water and bathing facilities.

    No sooner had the news reached Baron West and the rest of New Moonbrook, a call to arms in the form of a poster was released to all settlements from High Hearth to Haven all the way to Tordala: Bounty has been partially claimed Following an assault on Haytham's Landing the bandits were routed but the leader escaped. Those in attendance were paid their share of the 20 gold. A new bounty has gone up instead. "Wanted Dead or Alive Leader of as-yet named bandit group which have assaulted Haytham's Landing upon Kolai. Wanted for assault upon Alliance soldiers and siezure of king's property. These bandits have seemingly appeared from thin air and are currently believed to be unaffiliated with both the 'Rat Pack' and the unnamed bandit group operating in Eastern Opej'nor. Currently this group on Kolai are wanted on the following charges; Grand Theft Grievous Assault Attempted Murder Tresspass Membership of a Hostile Faction These bandits are responsible for chasing off the garrison stationed at Haytham's Landing and as of now it is considered occupied territory. The safety of those visiting Haytham's Landing cannot be guaranteed by Baron West at this time. As well as the bounty on the leader of this band of knaves, Baron West welcomes any information as to the identity of this faction of bandits in addition to any clues as to how they may be brought down, those with the relevant details should speak to Baron West personally. A sum of 15 gold pieces is offered for the bandit leader's head. A sum of 20 gold pieces is offered if the bandit leader is brought back to New Moonbrook alive to face execution. Alternative rewards can be made via prior arrangement with Baron West of New Moonbrook Those interested in undertaking this bounty are encouraged to inform Baron West as to the movements of this bandit group and any attempts made to defeat, route or otherwise remove them from Haytham's Landing and / or capture / kill their leader. Final reports from those who fled Haytham's Landing suggest approximately a dozen bandits who are surprisingly well armed and are not to be considered common brigands!

    A collection of posters make their way around various settlements, this time though a few end up specifically around Tordala on public noticeboards "Information Wanted Information sought on a magical firearm henceforth known as the 'Hellbane Rifle' supposedly responsible for the death of the warlock known as 'Heinrich's Bane' Baron West has a desire to procure a firearm which, in the wrong hands, could be an extremely deadly weapon that could be employed against any of the settlements here in the Doldrums. A reward of 20 gold is given to any information which leads to the magical weapon being recovered by New Moonbrook. Those who bring the weapon itself to New Moonbrook will be rewarded the handsome sum of 50 gold pieces. This is a deadly weapon which was capable of killing the aforementioned warlock in a single blast It is expected that multiple individuals will be coming forth with an assortment of information, the reward will be granted upon retrival of the weapon to who offered the most u seful information in acquiring this weapon including (but not limited to) Where the weapon resides Who the owner is or who possesses it Specifications of the weapon The affiliation of the weapon's owner Those with information regarding this bounty should seek Baron West directly.

    A new glut of bounty posters appear to be doing 'the rounds' The poster itself reads: "Wanted Dead Bandits found committing acts of rampant highway robbery, grievous bodily harm and murder along the Baron's Highway These bandits, seemingly part of a well-oiled and prepared 'gang' have seemingly sprung out of nowhere to cause chaos in the eastern reaches of Opej'nor waylaying those who travel between the Wizard's Enclave, Grom'Goshar, New Moonbrook any many other settlements which is causing trade to stifle. Multiple counts of Grand Theft Multiple counts of Assault Multiple counts of Grevious Assault Multiple counts of Waylaying Multiple counts of Attempted Murder Multiple counts of Murder These bandits can be found as far south as the 'Pond' previously known as 'The Sanctuary' and as far north as the road leading to New Moonbrook and Zan'Watha Embassy. They are in various numbers from small isolated bandits to larger and deadlier groups of three to five. In addition to the bounty listed, Corporal Thorne of New Moonbrook has been tasked with ending this bandit threat. Should any individuals find useful information as to where these curs are handing, the Corporal has been tasked with rewarding those who provide such relevant information appropriately. I have received information from those who have launched preliminary hunting parties for these bandits that they are not only armed with coshes and simple leather jerkins but a number of them seem to be semi-competant magi and a further number of them appear to be archers. As a warning to those travelling, it is STRONGLY advised and recommended that you hire a bodyguard or mercenary if you intend to frequently travel the eastern regions of Opej'nor especially along the highway until such a time as this threat is neutralized. Men and women of fortune can be found frequenting the streets of Haven or the slum-settlement of Egtown. As it currently stands, the rewards for the bounties are as follows: Each bandit ear brought to Corporal Thorne will be rewarded with 50 silver. Those who have been hunting many bandits can turn these in at 5 at a time for 250 silver. Anyone who finds the insignias that these curs sometimes possess can turn in two for an armour token, these can be redeemed for 'uncommon' equipment at the Haven blacksmiths. Corporal Thorne will not be dealing with Horde races who are not allowed into New Moonbrook except under exceptional circumstances, therefore Horde adventurers wishing to claim the bounties should find an Alliance mediator willing to turn them in.

    The bounty notice for Heinrich's Bane appears to have had a new addition pinned to it at the various settlements it now seems to be visible at: "To those still seeking to claim the bounty on Heinrich's Bane: Reports have come in from the outpost Haytham's Landing on Kolai that a Warlock, possibly Heinrich's Bane, has assaulted the soldiers stationed at the outpost with a pack of imps and is believed to be employing powerful magics to confuse and spread fear. As of writing this addendum, the bounty still stands and will be honored however it is noted that the target is to be considered EXTREMELY dangerous. - Baron West"

    Salutations all! With New Moonbrook well underway to becoming a steadfast fortress-settlement it's somewhat time to look inwards to the settlement's slowly growing numbers of troops. Having recovered men from both the shipwrecked vessel upon the Isle of Menhirs as well as rescuing captives from Sotoran frigates, there is a time more than any to establish some order in which the chain of command is followed. Being a settlement which takes inspiration from the Alliance, the current list of Alliance military ranks (also known as PVP ranks) are the means by which the settlement will establish the chain of command. Simply put: the higher you are on the list, the higher you are in administering orders to the rest of the settlement. As it currently stands the highest ranking position on the list is the ruler of the settlement (at the time of posting: Baron West) working its way down. At this current moment in time the second highest authority in the settlement is that of Corporal Jeremy Thorne (marked in game as 'Alliance Corporal'). https://wow.gamepedia.com/Alliance_Military_Ranks Promotions up ranks will depend on a number of factors: Settlement size. We will shortly be implementing what settlement population size is required for each rank. If the settlement consists of 5 people it seems somewhat daft having a 'Grand Marshal' in command. Actions in-game. This applies to both players and NPCs. If an NPC guard goes above and beyond in the line of duty then they will be marked for a promotion. If they perform poorly they will be demoted. Same can occur to players. As well as increase authority, promotions may also include factors such as nicer accomodation, a new suit of armour, a shiny new weapon or other perks such as increased pay. Ranks for individuals will be marked in this thread either beside their player name or their NPC name (even if players are just civilians, they are considered 'privates' if drafted into a militia)

    The latest 'round' of bounty posters from New Moonbrook seem to depict a rather smartly shaven knight in black plate. The poster itself reads: "Wanted Dead Sotoran false knight by the name of 'Sir Reginald' Wanted for the kidnapping of multiple Alliance marines as well as open bombardment of Haven. This false knight is responsible not only for kidnapping Alliance soldiers but also piracy, inciting war and affiliation with a faction openly practicing necromancy upon Alliance soldiers. The full list of charges by Baron Timothy West and the settlement of New Moonbrook are as follows: Piracy Inciting war Performing necromancy upon Alliance soldiers Kidnapping Multiple counts of murder This so-called 'knight' was last spotted fleeing Haven in a badly damaged frigate which had sustained cannon fire from New Moonbrook cannon crew. It is known that in the middle of the conflict his leg was blasted off making him a very distinct target for those who seek to claim this bounty. Those with information pertaining to this false-knight's location should report this information to the leadership of Drustgarde, the Captain of Haven and Baron West of New Moonbrook. As this villian is affiliated with Sotoras and has assaulted not only Alliance vessels but also the port of Haven, those claiming the reward for this bounty may also wish to consider approaching both Haven and Drustgarde for additional rewards for they also will likely wish for the demise of this individual. Currently the false-knight's blasted leg is in the possession of the Elves of Tordala who are attempting to scry his location on behalf of the arcanist 'Elle', those seeking out where the pirate may be found should start with the Elves. A sum of 35 55 30 gold pieces is offered for 'Sir' Reginald's head. Additionally there is a substitute rewards for the following individuals: 'Sir' Alistair the Forsaken Death Knight. Currently has an outstanding bounty on his head from Haven due to threats made against the settlement. Should he be the one to return with this head then although no promises made, Baron West will lobby on your behalf for the bounty on your head from Haven to be rescinded or substituted for a lesser punishment. Priestess Emily of the Scarlet Crusade Currently banned from entering New Moonbrook due to affiliations with the Scarlet Crusade. Should she be the one to return the false-knight's head then this will be considered sufficient proof of the intentions of the Scarlet Crusade within the Doldrums and it will be understood that their normally overzealous attitude to non-human races may have voided - the Scarlet Crusaders of High Hearth will be considered 'neutral' to New Moonbrook should they deliver the false-knight's head. Arcanist 'Elle' of the Isle of Menhirs Currently banned from entering New Moonbrook due to reckless usage of a magical artefact and attempting to arrest Baron West on a false charge of theft of aforementioned artefact. Should the arcanist be the one to return the false-knight's head then her ban from entry into New Moonbrook shall be rescinded."
