The Mended Vale
Surrounded by the lush wildlands of Stormheim, ripe with predators and conflicts aplenty, lies the Mended Vale. This land holds a single seafront village wherein tradesmen from lands far and wide made business with the local Vrykul society, trading livestock and various goods.
Until very recently, the Mended Vale had established itself as a peaceful business opportunity for many a wanderer. However, in the world of Azeroth, good things never last. The folk of the Mended Vale, be they seers or skirmishers, fell prey to a meteorite chunk that plunged its way deep within their tranquil waters. A bright flash of cerulean light followed closely after the impact, making some blind while others deaf. Those who survived the crashing meteor went back to their trades shortly after, though they found that their land had been disturbed, foiled. The crops did not yield reward, and the wind blew irregularly.
The village seers along with their leader, Yluf Aherdsson, regarded the meteor as an ill omen, a sign of calamities to come. Perhaps out of worry or sheer annoyance at the leading seer's words, the leadership of the village chose to exile him and his adherents indefinitely.
With no one left to turn to, Yluf called upon adventurers to heed his warnings, and soon an order called Ordo Aurora arrived at his feet. Whether they mean well or not, one cannot easily decipher. What is certain, though, is that you have been called here to uncover mysteries beyond the layman's perception.
Phase 279576 promotes neutrality and quality of interaction. What that means is not necessarily that your Orc cannot open fire on that rowdy Dwarf that's been taunting you, but that they both accepted in the same space. Remember, faction/race tension will always be there, and it always depends on characters.
If your character dies in the phase, it is your choice whether it constitutes to phase-only death or server-wide death. I do not make the rules for your character.
Exotics are fine, so long as there's a reason to travel to Stormheim.
Do not equate OOC with IC. Your character lives in a fantasy world, not you.
