Blackrock I; Completed 8/9/18
Argus is gone, destroyed seemingly in the wake of Sargeras' final mad act, however the echoes of the Legion's dark master still ripple. Doomsayers roam the streets of capitals proclaiming the return of the Black Empire, a historical period heavily tied to a primordial Azeroth ruled by the Old Gods. Naturally, more level heads have organized an expedition into what is believed to be a hotbed of such extremists; Blackrock Mountain. Lead by Juron Kazzarian of Moira's Dark Iron Clan, the mostly Dwarven expedition had gone missing days ago, and now the various adventurer guilds and anti-occult orders have called those willing to meet a contact in the shadow of the mountain.
A trio of adventurers, one unbound by banners, and two of the Horde and Alliance borne entered the mountain, sent on their way by Prospector Drukhar, this was after a brief conflict with a seemingly deranged human calling himself 'Woo Ping.' This was resolved quickly however and the band continued on, reaching the mountain with due haste, where they entered and found it to be mostly abandoned. The ghostly visage of resident dwarves was little more than a shadow. They reached the tomb of Forgewright, suspended by chains in the Molten Span, only to find orcs and undead holed up inside it. The enemies are quickly dispatched, as two sorcerers carrying matching journals are brought down. One journal held by Seona and the other by one simply known as 'the Windbeaten'. Maleves moved off temporarily, to allow for the mage and the warrior to continue down, until they reached the quarry which helped build the ancient halls of Shadowforge. This quarry was totally consumed by smoke as large misshapen blocks now stood, obstructing paths - a maze, no doubt, created hastily by the other two magi which had been seen depositing a crystal into the lava below.
Those attempting to read on further find the entry missing.. incomplete.
Two of the Fathers' Journals recovered.
Four confirmed disciples of the Father.
An entity claiming itself to be a successor to Archbishop Benedictus' position in the Twilight's Hammer is the leader of the cult. This is worrying.
Kazzarian's fate discovered.
