The last coals of the Fourth War have died out, armies of the Alliance and Horde prepare for another war! Knowing that their goals have not been met, but peace is maintained for the time being. A small recurring conflict threatens that tenuous peace, Alterac Valley. Cold hatreds rouse again through the conflict of the Stormpike Clan and Frostwolf Clan! Meanwhile other nefarious forces lay in the dark waiting to spring their plans…
Shadows of Lordamere is a warfront phase between Horde and Alliance along with other neutral-hostile factions. The phase will include a RPG-lite system inspired heavily from DnD 5e, a super simplified ruleset for ease of combat. Allowing a quick 10 minute read to get one’s bearings. Elegance is the name of the game! Emergent depth with simple mechanics! The phase will include all of Lordaeron and Quel’thalas, but will start out with Alterac Valley as the center of conflict and the phase will slowly expand outwards. Player-driven DMing with a couple of planned events for intersecting storylines.

Currently, I have been working on the Alterac Valley and Northern EK portion of the phase for 6 months in earnest. I have some of the big building things out of the way, making everything look HD, I need help with decorating large buildings and creating NPCs mainly before we can launch. **DMs and Builders wanted!** But future players can get an early head start and join too!
