#29 - For Azeroth!: “Council of the Black Harvest”
• Garrett • Jocelyn
Intro: Welcome to For Azeroth!
What We’re Up To
Tomb of Sargeras!
Meat of the story goes here.
- Awful loot luck and I don’t care. Awesome content
- Geared up my Ret Pally quite a bit
Into the Rift
- Now that the Legion invasion has begun, the Council of the Black Harvest has realized their only chance is to grow stronger by tapping into the powers of the Twisting Nether
- The Council formed after Deathwing’s defeat, in an attempt to harness all different powers they had witnessed. Led by Kanrethad Ebonlocke, the council split into teams to recover the powers.
- Kanrethad became completely corrupted by fel energy, and was banished at the Black Temple during the events of Mists of Pandaria
- The newest member of the council, the warlock adventurer, joins the Council in a ritual led by Zelifrax Wobblepox
- The portal and summoning bring forth Jagganoth, a pit lord, who Zelifrax fails to contain. The council is captured and jailed in the Dreadscar Rifts
- Being spared the brunt of the attack, the warlock is able to control the jailer long enough to free themselves and Ritssyn Flamescowl, who is then slain
- The warlock, with the help of a tortured demon named Calydus, frees the remaining Council members, Jubeka Shadowbreaker, Shinfel Blightsworn, and Zinnin Smythe
- Shinfel wishes to enslave the pit lord, but Zinnin is against the idea. The warlocks make their way to the Dreadscar Rift archives, where they gain access to many Legion tomes
- Jagganoth appears, hurling Shinfel across the room, infuriated at the warlocks. The group flees the pit lord, who throws fel fire at them as they go
- One by one, the warlocks fall, leaving only the adventurer to make it through the portal back to Azeroth, and close the portal behind them, leaving without the Council
Dreadscar Rifts: The Return
- After locating a powerful artifact, the warlock returns to take on Jagganoth and rescue the Council, but he is too late. The Council has been moved, and are now in the hands of Jagganoth’s lord, Mephistroth
- With the power of the new weapon, the warlock is able to defeat Jagganoth, and claims his heart to become Lord of the Dreadscar
- Mephistroth arrives, warning the warlock that the fight is far from over
- All the demons of the Dreadscar now answer to you, and so the Rift becomes the base of operations for the Warlock order
- The warlock then finds the body of Ritssyn Flamescowl, and resurrects him to help with locating Mephistroth and the rest of the Council
- The warlock order discovers a tome in the demonic archives that details how to create a gateway to any Legion world, as long as the creator knows where to direct it
- Kira Iresoul is a powerful warlock with knowledge that could help direct the portal, so the warlock goes out to find her. She shares her knowledge of bloodstones, powerful items that need to be fed the blood of demons in order to function
- As of right now, the stone kills the demons Kira intends to enslave, but she resolves to keep working on the powerful blood magic
- Kira returns and helps create a gateway that points to… you guessed it...
Did someone say… Niskara?
- Upon arriving on Niskara, the warlock is able to free Zinnin and Jubeka, but Shinfel is gone
- She has been taken by the dreadlord, and must be found because if the demons break her, they will be able to mount an attack on the Dreadscar Rift itself, potentially wiping out the order completely
- The warlocks should be able to summon her, but will need an anchor made of powerful soul shards to do it
- They also need an unclaimed soul to act like a beacon to pull her through the Twisting Nether, which the warlock gathers from the Amalgam of Souls in Black Rook Hold
- Kira and Ritssyn assist the warlock in the summoning ritual, and bring Shinfel to the Dreadscar Rifts, but she is under a spell, and her mind remains with her captor
- The warlock travels to Bradensbrook to seek the aid of a powerful alchemist to try to break the curse. According to him, the curse will get worse with time, ending in death, unless the caster of the curse ends it
- The Alchemist is able to brew a potion to weaken the curse and slow its progression, but it can not be cured
Oh Sister, where art thou?
- Shinfel is able to name those responsible, Lady Sacrolash and her twin sister Alythess. They are assisting Mephistroth, who is building an army to attack the Rift and steal the Felblood Altar
- If the twins can be summoned and controlled, it should rid Shinfel of her curse, as well as weaken Mephistroth’s forces
- Kira recommends using the bloodstone on the weakened sisters in order to control them
- The power to control demons comes from the bloodstone consuming a corrupted heart, making Cordana Felsong the perfect target. With her heart fed to the stone, the order searches for a powerful ally in the Broken Isles, as the last demonic summoning didn’t go well
- They find Lulubelle Fizzlebang in Stormheim, sister of Wilfred who messed up the summoning of Lord Jaraxxas. Because of this, Lulubelle is blamed for all summonings gone wrong, so she and the warlock set out to clear her name
- With her accuser defeated, Lulubelle is proven innocent, and can focus on battling the Legion
- With their new champions and the empowered bloodstone, The warlocks begin summoning the sisters on the edge of Dreadscar Rift
- After the combined might of the Council is put to the test, they are able to weaken the sisters enough to control them
- The Council needs a sixth member, so the player gets to choose between Kira and Lulubelle for the final spot
- The Council vows to unlock the secrets of the Burning Legion, and the warlock is named Netherlord for their ability to bend demons to their will
