Zandali Missives

"Mah journey almost be over, Hierophant.

Dese missives gonna be comin' a bit slower now wit me being so far from home. Can't just be sending letters on Huitzul's back no more. Dis Amani be missin' his hunting grounds, though dere be more Humans here den you'd tink. Ain't seen any Elves just yet and mah trophies be rottin', all goin' ta Quetlikun's beak. Dem tings aside, ah nevah thought ah'd be missin' Tanaris. Da Farraki at least be knowin' how ta make da sands and heat tolerable. Dis barrens place be misery, and da wastes ahead be lookin' even worse. Can joo be believin' dat dese Orcs chose da dirt and mud ta settle when dere be a forest right across da rivah? Dey may have tusks, but dey not too bright.

Bwa'chech be takin' ta dese lands well, much game for him ta eat. But da animals here not be used ta pterrorwings. He be scarin' da hunt away for now. Quetlikun be missin' da others of da clutch when we was on da ship. And da slave? Insufferable wit all her questions. Should've left her behind da gates of Zul'Aman. But, she'll be knowin' her place again soon. It be a shame dat ya faithful adherent could not have been stayin' instead in dat city of dead Humans. Much closer and would've saved me dis travelin'. Would be just like Zul'Mashar if not for all dat fightin' ya warned of in da area. Dem Alliance and Horde always be at each other's throats. Ha! Dis one be laughin' while dey bleed each other dry.

We be headin' into da capital tomorrow. Ah'm sure dis Horde will be interested in what da Zandalari may bring. And if not? Ah'll still be watchin' dem. I wonder how da other envoys fare elsewhere? Da Zanchuli be needin' eyes everywhere now if Zul's will gonna be done. Dis Vol'jin turned his back on his kind before, but at least he be a Troll. Much has changed since da Tunda Isle, and dis Horde be much weaker. Maybe dere be hope for da Horde just yet...

"Dis Amani be seein' now why joo and da Archons were not wanting ta set foot in dat city yaselves, Hierophant... Filthy place it be.

Da Orcs were ignorant of ya servant, dey be lettin' me pass witout so much as lookin' at me. But, da Darkspear knew bettah den dat. Da moment ah be walkin' past dey be watchin' close like, knowin' bettah den ta turn dem backs on Amani'shi... Da slave was more useful den expected despite her jabberin'. Dey be confused seein' da Elf walking behind as if she were mah companion. Joo be tinking dat dey know a slave when dey see one since da city be rife wit dem, though dey all look ta be small Orcs.

We be walkin' through da city, and it not be so bad at first. Da place were no Tor'Watha, but dere not be much ta work wit...until ah be comin' close ta da slums. Goblins...dey be lettin' da vermin skittah about wit dere foul metal tings. Still, dere be worse deepah into dis Orgrimmar. Down in da dark reaches dere be whispahs like ah be tellin' joo about when we be passin' through Stranglethorn on da way ta ya boat. Da Archons dere be tellin' me about many beggin' for bad blood, for someting dey be callin' "wreave." Ah be hearin' da same around dese parts... Bad juju be followin' da Horde wherever dey be going, but it not mah place ta question da Zandalari.

Ya adherent be denied audience wit da Warchief, though dey be ready ta give demands already. Dey be sayin' dat ah be free ta roam about so long dat ah don't cause no trouble. Dey also be seein' Bwa'chech long before we be arrivin' and dey no want him in da city...Bah! Can joo be believin' da insolence, Hierophant? Maybe dis Vol'jin not so weak afta all? Dis envoy will be playin' nice for now like ya be wantin', observin' dem from now on. Dey cannot be ignorin' da Zandalari name forevah.

Ah was glad ta be rid of dat canyon dey be callin' a city, and free of da slave too once we returned ta camp. Flyin' atop Bwa'chech be givin' mah head much rest...and a new sight ta see. Da Darkspear be havin' a littah place along da coast dey be callin' da "Echo Isles." We be landin' dere for a littah while, be catchin' da eye of many dem young Trolls. Dey probably nevah seen no real huntah before, eh? Dey have no Hierophant about dat place, dem young-tusks gonna be growin' up witout knowin' dey heritage. Taught ta worship dis Horde...It be bad voodoo.

Dere be much ta tink on and see, and tomorrow ah be lookin' into dat strange portal ah be seein' in da Warchief's hold...

"So... "Tiny but useful," eh? Is dat what da Horde gonna be ta da will of Zul, Hierophant? Strange words like dat be comin' from strange places, wit plunda and riches ah nevah been tinkin' before. Ah been learnin' much while watching dem. Dere be too much ta write on dis here hide, and more yet ta see.

Ah be rememberin' dem rumors when we was at Zul'Kunda. Da Bloodscalp be frettin' bout some happenings in da lands south of da Atal'ai temple. Paid dem omens no heed, talkin' bout Orcs comin' through dat portal again. Orcs always be everywhere, screamin' about blood and tunda wherever dey are. Why should dis Amani be carin', eh? Ah tell joo why...

Dis one be knowin' ya stories about da war wit da great Zul'jin when ah was young. Dis... "Draenor" be where dem Orcs hailin' from, it be dey home. Da Horde be dere now, been fightin' lots. Dere be demons too, bad voodoo all around dem. But, dis world be ripe for da conquest. Dere be forest land and jungle wit spoils ta be had dat da Horde and Alliance be wanting. Look at dem. Dey own world not enough, so dey be reachin' out ta take anudda, eh? Dey be like Hakkar and nevah gonna be sated. Das what dey be hidin' in dat hold in dere Orc city, a portal ta dis place. Ah be havin' a vision of da Golden Fleet rulin' da seas around dis Draenor... but, maybe dat be jus' a dream. For now ah be listenin' real good, learnin' all dat can be known for da Zanchuli.

Dey be desperate for peoples ta come into dat Warspear place on da otha side. Dey be warrin' wit dem Alliance ovah dis..."Ashran" island. Dere be mercernaries here, many ah tink, and dey be sayin' dat da hunting be good. Ah'll be seein' dis mahself soon, if dat Goblin be speakin' truth. Can joo be imagining ya adherent listening ta one dem littah creatures for long? Ah be meetin' one last night, da first of dem kind not ta piss and peddle trinkets at mah feet. "Rutilus Luna" be dere outfit, and da Horde seem ta be havin' plenty foddah like dem. Dis Amani can be hearin' much when dese kind come ta drink and stuff demselves full, metinks.

Ah be wonderin' if ah should be leavin' da slave behind. At first ah be growin' wary ta draw too much attention ta mahself, but da Horde so far not seem ta be carin'. Dey be havin' dem dumb Orcs slave away, but none be Elf like mah trophy. She not so great a gift like Bwa'chech was, but she be havin' uses, Hierophant. Even if she sometimes seem ta forget dat Huitzul always be watchin' dem. Anyway, dis Amani gonna be lookin' round dat Draenor place while waitin' for dis Warchief ta be seein' me. Loa grant dese tusks patience...

"Da huntin' be good, Hierophant.

Dem mercenaries be speakin' da truth about dis Ashran place. Dis Amani be crossin' da bridge ta be seein' what da Horde be willin' ta spill all dis blood for. Dere be magics here, old and powerful in da very stones. Da Warlord dere be callin' himself Volrath. Dis Vol'jin be placin' Trolls ahead of everyting, not be leaving tings ta da lesser races. A wise choice ah be tinkin'. Dat Volrath be welcomin' dis Amani'shi, be sayin' dat da headhuntahs dere can be learnin' much from our ways. Dere must be more Gurubashi in his veins den most Darkspear, eh? A shame dere not be more. He be tamed like da others, or else dere would not be so many Elves leadin' da efforts. Someting dey be callin' da "Reliquary" be spearin' much, demandin' relics dat be found. Bah! Dem Elves always be wantin' tings dat not be deres, lands dat not be dey own witout havin' da strength ta take it demselves for long.

Ah soon be stalkin' da fields from afar, watchin' dem bleed out wit da Alliance. Dey not be seein' dis Amani and dere be plenty places ta watch da throat cutting. Dere be many groups and dey be doin' most da fighting. Da Horde be waitin' while da foddah pushes da lines, walkin' in afta da skirmishes be done. Dis must be how da Horde be affordin' all dis, dey be calling da littah bands so dey not be needin' dere armies. Still, da Alliance no be givin' much ground and dey be fighting in circles. Dis Volrath be no Jintha, dat be sure.

Dere be otha tings fighting on dis island, strange tings ah nevah be seein' before. Any dat stray too far from da roads be findin' demselves hunted. Lynx men dat be remindin' dis one of Halazzi prowl da cliffs and caves, but dey not be seein' dis Amani either. In da dark woods dere be sickly birds and dey at first make me tink of Akil'zon, but dey be gnarled and wicked lookin' instead. Ah not be lingerin' dere long since dat forest be filled wit voodoo. But, ah be makin' sure ta take some dem trinkets and juju. Ah be makin' a shrine ta Zanza on da isle so dat dey Loa be watchin' ya envoy. Dere also be Ogres here, but dey be different den da ones da Horde be bringin' through da portal long ago. Dese Ogres be smartah, be weavin' spells and tamin' beasts as if dey be tinkin'. Mark mah words, dis island be givin' off strong mojo.

It be here dat ah be huntin' now and mah necklace be heavy. Dey Alliance gonna be fearin' da Amani'shi. When ah be growin' weary ah'll be seein' ta dem lands south of Orgrimmar and da forests west dere too. Give da game some time ta return afta Bwa'chech be scarin' dem off. Da Horde no be carin' ta barter wit scalps and ears, and da coin ah be takin' from dat now dead Dwarf camp near da Goblin port be runnin' low. Ah be worryin' at first, but dis Ashran place be payin' for trophies... Ah not be bringin' in so many since Zouchin! Maybe dis Amani be makin' dat Warchief wait a littah when he be callin', let me hunt a littah longah, eh?

"Ya words be dire and troublin' ta dis Amani, Hierophant...

And still joo be wanting dis Amani'shi ta remain watchin' da Orgrimmar and Warspear places? Ah be tellin' ya about dis Draenor, but dey riches here not be mah home. Joo be sayin' dat da fighting between dem Alliance and Horde be movin' north since last ah traveled. And worse, joo be sayin' dat more Elves be skulking through da forests before Zul'Aman? Ah should not be here, mah spear should be dere ta hunt heads for da tribe... Forgive dis Amani, Hierophant. I be knowin' dat da will of Zul must be done and dis one gonna be havin' ta trust his bruddahs ta hunt witout him. Ah know what dey will be doin' while dem armies be marchin'. Dere would be much ta prepare.

Zul'Mashar will raise da dead and den be sealin' demselves in dere temples, waiting for da hosts ta be gone. Zeb'Nowa gonna be movin' past da temple-city, into da mountains dere behind Zul'Aman. Dem left at Zeb'Sora and Zeb'Tela probably gonna be hurryin' north ta Tor'Watha. Maybe some seal demselves in da catacombs too. Dere gonne be Amani'shi ta bar de gates of Zul'Aman and watch da city, but not too many. Mah bruddahs not gonna be holdin' long alone, Archons watch over dem. Maybe dey be layin' ambushes at da pass? Afta dat dey gonna be watching and waitin' for both sides ta bloody demselves and grow tired. Den dey gonna be pickin' dem off through da land before retreatin' and holding fast. Dat be what dis Amani'shi would be doin', sharpenin' mah tusks and waiting ta strike...

Ah gonna be makin' offerings ta da Loa so dat mah spirit be dere, and dey not be hunting alone. Da Zandalari be wit dem. Dis Amani be knowin' dat joo gonna be guidin' our people from harm, Hierophant. For now, ah'll be seeing ta mah task and ya request for me. Ah not been hearin' from da otha envoys like ya be askin'. Dis one will be lookin' into dat, maybe even lookin' around dat Tunda Bluff place. Da Gurubashi adherent ah not seen since da ship and Zul'Farrak. I bet dey jus' been layin wit da Farraki in da sun and not even been ta dey post, eh? We will be seein' soon.

"Da Grim, eh?

It seems dat not all da Horde be alike, Hierophant. Mah slave been speakin' tings dat dey been listenin' to while dis Amani be hunting in da Ashran place. Tings dat foddah of da Horde be sayin' while dey fill demselves at dat waterin' hole in Warspear. Da words of a slave not be worth much, but dat ah be seein' elsewhere seem ta agree wit dem. Besides, if dey be lying den dey know dat da wrath of an Amani'shi gonna be on dem.

Da slave be tellin' ya envoy about Horde dat take scalps and dat dey not be carin' who from. Dat dese ones be ruthless and dat some here even be fearin' dem. Dey be callin' demselves da "Grim," and dey be out for blood. Dey be sayin'... "Peace through annihilation," or so ya adherent be hearing when dey be talked about. Maybe dis Amani be wrong ta doubt ya, Hierophant. Da Horde be havin' Darkspear leading all, and now ah be hearin' about some among dem dat know how da world really be... Dere still be many weaklings, but dey at least not all be witout hope afta all.

But... dese Grim don't seem ta be mercenaries or da like from what else ah be hearin'. Da slave be tellin' also of how dey temper supplicants. Dey be hearin' about trials and someting about gougin' eyes too? Da Grim be soundin' like zealots ta dis one, reminding dis Amani of ya stories about da Atal'ai. Still, dere be uses for cults like dat if joo be knowin' how ta control dem. Peoples like dat be like serpents wit useful venoms and coils, but also ready ta bite ya throat and strangle ya if joo not be watchin' dem close. How long until dese Grim turn on dey mastahs, eh?

And now dis Grim be callin' for a hunt? Dey be callin' it da "Great Hunt," but it be no hunt at all. Dey invitin' otha Horde ta come togetha ta fight dem in da Goblin fightin' rings. Offerin' gold ta lure people into da bloodsport. Sayin' dat dey be wanting ta cull dere weak. Bah! What kind of hunt it be when da prey know dey bein' hunted before it begins? Amani know how real huntin' be, we be doin' so since we be young as a game! All dis be is a contest, ta show dem otha Horde dere strength. Fitting dat dey gonna be usin' da old Gurubashi arena for da end since dey be so alike. Dat tribe always be makin' a show demselves, preenin' dere feathas for all ta see. Sure, ya gonna be showin' otha groups who be bettah, but dey still gonna be watchin' ya. Dem eyes do more den gawkin', dey look past ya strength and see ya weaknesses too. Den, when it mattahs, dey know ya tricks and it be too late...

Hrm, maybe dis Amani should be watchin' dem from da crowd if ya be permitting? Dis envoy could be learnin' much wit da eyes of Huitzul, observin' and keepin' dey flaws close for when da time be right.

"Da envoy be dead, Hierophant.

As joo be commandin' dis Amani traveled south ta da Tunda Bluff place where da Gurubashi adherent were supposed ta be goin'. Da lands about dere be fertile and healthy, not like dis barren wasteland all around. Dere gatha da cowmen, but dey not like da ones ah be seein' before in Pandaria. Dey be smallah den Yaungol, lookin' less fierce and able for da warrin'. Da Drakkari at da Tunda Isle once spoke of huntin' Taunka. Ah nevah seen dat kind before, but dis Tauren look softah den how dey sounded. Da plains be lush and wide, but da forests be few and no place for any Amani. Still, da city be sittin' nice atop da bluffs and so dey be seein' all dat happens in dere land. Dem totems and tents be so high in da skies dat dey be remindin' dis one of ya stories of where Zuldazar once be.

None da Tauren be seein' any Troll envoy or pterrorwing until ah be arrivin' dere ta look around. Dat troubled ya servant grave like dat dis envoy not be servin' da Zanchuli when dey be wantin' it. Ah left mah slave den wit Huitzul and Quetlikun at da Tunda Bluff so dat mah searchin' be swiftah. Ah did not have much time ta be lookin' around since Bwa'chech was eyein' dem great herds of kodo beasts dat roamed about. Ah was needin' haste and did not want ta chance him carryin' off wit a calf into da hills for days.

Dis Amani first be scourin' da mountains surroundin' da valley before headin' south again. Ah be reachin' dat canyon of drowned spires dey be callin' da Thousand Needles when Bwa'chech be actin' up more den usual. Atop a lone cliff we be finding da remains of da Zandalari saddle... and what be left of da otha envoy. Ah seen da body burned and da saddle wit dem quick like since da musk of da mount was angerin' mah beast. Da otha envoy must have lost control of da pterrorwing gifted ta dem... Dat Gurubashi be shamin' his tribe and da Beast Ward for trusting him wit such a ting. Bah! Jalak spit on dey weak mojo!

It fell ta dis huntah ta track da stray beast dat da envoy let away. Ya faithful adherent be doin' so into da west of Feralas. Dere be forests dere, thick and ancient dat would be good ta da Amani... if it not be teemin' wit Elves and Ogres dat be. Still, press on did ya envoy afta da prey. It would disgrace da Zandalari ta let such an animal fall into da hands of Elves. It be takin' some days, but dis Amani'shi followed da creature and da bodies it be leavin' behind. Ah was waitin' long into da night for da beast ta sleep before stalkin' dere and stabbin' it behind da skull and nape like Ku'lai be tellin' me at Za'Tual. It be bad voodoo ta slay such a beast, but it need be done. Dey spirit be wit da Loa now. Ah be feedin' its heart ta Bwa'chech so dat he be flyin' strongah now, and den we be burnin' and burying da remains.

Dis envoy will be seekin' da Farraki again, seein' if dey can be replacin' da Gurubashi adherent at da Tunda Bluff. Maybe ah be huntin' a bit in dese woods too before retrievin' mah slave afta. Dere also be dem fens and thorns wit many pigmen ah be seein'... Ah tink ah'll be lookin' dere ta hunt as well on mah way back ta da Orgrimmar, eh?

"Ah be seein' a curious ting dis day, Hierophant.

It be long into da evening when ah be arrivin' again at da Warspear, checkin' dey gathering places and watchin' around. It not be long until ah saw someting unexpected. It be most fitting dat ah been ta Zul'Farrak recently. Dis Amani be seein' da first Troll otha den mahself on dis Draenor dat not be Darkspear. Ah be tired of dese jungle Trolls, so dis be a good sign. Dere was dis dainty littah Farraki ting, talkin' wit one dem undead Humans. But, da Sandfury not be tellin' ya envoy about sendin' anybody ta da Horde while I was dere...

"Lilliana Bloodshine" be dey name, and dey be claimin' ta be Grim... Maybe dis one was wrong about dem? Ah been hearin' dat dey bloodthirsty warriors, dat dey be huntin' and fierce like. She no be lookin' like dat ta dis Amani'shi. She be speakin' in an accent ah nevah heard before, gentle and higher den any Farraki ah known. How such a delicate ting be takin' scalps, eh? Dey also be sayin' dat dey been wit da Horde for a decade now, and stranger still dey not be callin' demself Farraki? Metinks dey been wit da Horde too long.

Dis one nevah been hearin' about a Farraki not belongin' ta da sands. Da Sandfury be weak and small among da tribes, so dey always be stayin' togetha ta endure. Just like dey martyr Theka be wantin' for dem. Ah be wonderin' if she been ta da Tunda Isle...was she dere, strikin' down Sul and her own kind wit da Horde?

Da Farraki tribe be sayin' dat though da sand be littah can it still flay ya alive. Hrm...dis be needing more watching. Dat encounter was short, but ah wager dey'll be around again.

"Loa help dis Amani...

Joo be askin' for much, Hierophant. Mah patience be thinnin' afta da trial ah be weatherin' dis night. Ya envoy be hearin' about some meeting place da Horde be hostin' every some days. Dis place supposed ta attract even more den dat tavern in da Warspear dey be sayin'. Ya adherent be going dere outside da city ta watch da Horde as be da will of Zul... Zanchuli grant dis servant fortitude knowin' dat ah'll be needing ta watch dere again. At least da drink be good.

Elves... Dey be skitterin' in da corners of da Warspear and Orgrimmar places, but on dat ship? Dey be like plague on da lands and everywhere. Dere be one in particular dat dis Amani'shi gonna be watchin' for when dey back be turned. Dey be claimin' ta be "Warden" of da Amani, be spewin' filth and nonsense dat dey gonna keep dey eyes on dis one. Dey be saying dey gonna protect dis Amani... And worse, dey be ignorant too. Da Elf be sayin' dat Zul himself be unda dere authority, as if dey be sailin' da Golden Fleet demselves. Bah! Can joo be believin' dis blasphemy? Arrogant, like all dere kind, and not even knowin' who da great Zul be. It be takin' all mah might ta restrain mahself from runnin' mah spear through dey throat!

But, even dat would not shut dey mouth. Dey be risen, and it be tellin' ta dis one dat dey were not brought back right in da head. Ain't dis place da Darkspear's now? Why Bwonsamdi not be takin' dem, eh? Dis one will be da one watchin', not dem. Gonna be waiting ta tear dem down when dey not expecting like Jan'alai. Ah can endure dis for da Zandalari until den. Dey wanna watch da Amani? Dey can be doin' so from inside Bwa'chech!

Da fool aside... da otha peoples at least not be so intolerable, even if da place be chaos worse den da whirlpools in stranglethorn. Dere be many groups mingling dere and much needing ta be listened ta. Ah be meetin' dere many bruddahs. Revantusk, Shatterspear, and even da Farraki again. Da littah Sandfury be around just like ah be tellin' joo, and dey not alone. Dey be keepin' one dem dead Humans as a pet. Ah may be needin' ta leave Quetlikun behind since he be eyein' da risen ones hungry like. She be introducin' dis Amani ta more Grim. Ah be meeting one dey be hailin' as "High Inquisitor." Dey be an Orc, seasoned and wit strong mojo, who be callin' demselves Khorvis. He speak ta ya envoy about trials, scalpin', and dey "Mandate" for peace when ya enemies be dead. It be a shame dat one not be born Troll, but at least he not be chewin' stones like most dem Orcs.

Dis Horde be more diverse den ah be seein' when ah hunt da forests back home. Dere be a deep web, Shadra be praised, of alliances and grudges ah be sensin' just beneath da surface. Ah'll be returning dere ta observe when mah weary tusks be ready again. Dis Amani'shi gonna be needin' Huitzul's eyes and da wisdom of Zanza for dis task...

"Ah be movin' camp, Hierophant.

Da shanty town below dem cliffs be insufferable wit dey noise driftin' in da air. So, ya envoy be bringin' his slave and following da coast from dat port along da rivah. Dis Amani be seekin' a bettah place between dese horrid lands, if dat even be possible. Eventually ah be comin' across a littah hut wit nobody around. A shame it not be needin' claiming and killin' like da last place, but it be sturdy and lookin' like it be built wit Troll hands. None been comin' ta claim da dwellin' for now, and even if dey do? Well, dey gonna be in for a surprise ah be tinking. Dis belong ta ya adherent now.

It be quietah here and da Orgrimmar city be in mah sights, da parched lands just across da Southfury. Da hills and trees be grantin' dis Amani reprieve from da sun and Huitzul plenty places ta be hangin' from. It be along some road, da path we be takin' first time into da captial. But, dere nevah be nobody... Ah be bettin' dat be because of da rivah since it be aplenty wit crocolisks. Dey be sunnin' on da far bank all day while watchin' da shores for da careless. Dey meat be good and da hides thick. Maybe da beasts be growin' strong here off da Orc flesh? Dis Amani'shi be collectin' dey bones and makin' a shrine ta Mahamba so dat maybe he be comin' ta dese waters, eh?

Da hunting was easier south, but ah'll be havin' ta endure again. Dere was Humans and Dwarves in dey littah forts further down, mah necklace nevah runnin' light. But, more den dem, dere were da pigmen ah be tellin' joo of. Dey be called "Quilboar," and da Orcs be hating dem. Be givin' good for dey tusks... In some ways dis Amani be pityin' dem. Dey defendin' dey land from all sides, and dey be tenacious when hunted. Still, dey be tastin' too good ta leave be! Dey be weak and it be dey fate. Ya envoy may have been movin' camp south instead ta dem hunting grounds if not for what ah be seein'.

While on da hunt dere be a presence in da pigmen's bramble lairs. Ya adherent be swearin' dat through da thorns ah be spyin' Loa, a great boar dat be watchin' dem. Maybe da Zandalari could be reachin' out ta dem quiet like, offerin' dem powah ta take dey lands with dat Loa? Dat could be good ta sever da land between da Mulgore and Durotar wit dem, no? Of course, dat be for da Zanchuli ta decide and not for ya servant ta be wastin' words wit.

Dat aside...da slave be hearin' tings again. While ah be out hunting da Ashran and dey lingerin' about dat place ta stay in da Warspear. It seems ta dis one dat da Horde be more worried about dem demons den da Alliance most da time now. Dey be hearin' talk like dat all around, but ah be tellin' joo dis already mahself. What be catchin' mah ears be dat she be listenin' ta some dem Horde talk about a weapon. Someting dat dey be usin' ta out and fight da demons... If dat be true, den it must be havin' terrible voodoo. Ah'm sure da Zandalari would be interested in dat. Dey also be hearin' a name wit it..."Shokkra." Forgive dis Amani for dat all ah be knowin' about it, dis through da slave.

Ah be tinking of bringin' da slave ta dat ship when da Horde be gathered dere. Ah tink ah be hearin' dat name before in dat place. Ya envoy been cautious, but da Horde dat seen dem so far not seem ta be carin' about such tings. Maybe ah be hearin' more through dem since dey be so many dere kind about? Da trophy be behavin' well anyhow and it be troublesome ta be keepin' Huitzul watchin' dem all da time... Ah must be learnin' more.

"It been too long since ah last be writing ya, Hierophant. Da hunt been tryin', but what dis envoy not find in prey ah bring in answers.

Since ah be arrivin' in dese lands ah tink it strange dat da Horde not be settlin' in da forests west of da Orgrimmar. Da woodlands dere be loomin' above dem hills in da distance higher den any trees ah ever seen, lush and thick wit game. Ah been hearin' much about dem lands, dat dey be Elf land, but it was time dat ya adherent saw for himself. Dat ah be seein'... it be a wondah dat da Orc city still be standin'.

Da forests be ancient in dis "Ashenvale," and ah be wonderin' if dis Amani be da first of da tribe ta hunt dere. Dere be Loa beneath da boughs and spirits aplenty roamin' around like joo nevah seen. Still, it be true dat dere be someting unnatural in da land. Elves...it be like da forests beyond Tor'Watha. Dey can't be leavin' da world around dem alone, always needin' ta make dey mark wit magics. Ah be rememberin' ya stories, and da tales da Archons tell. Da first Elves, and da enemy of all Trolls. Ah've caught glimpses of dem in da fighting of dat Ashran place, but not like dis.

Dese Elves be much different den da ones ah be huntin' back home. Dey be more of a challenge worthy of dis Amani'shi. Of course, ah'll always be preferrin' da pale ones for what dey done ta mah people, but dat hunting be hard ta come by while bein' ya envoy. Da will of Zul says nothin' about da purple kind, eh? But, as ah be sayin'... da huntin' be tryin' lately. Dese Elves be fightin' savage like, and dey meld wit da forests almost as good as mah bruddahs. It even seem like da forest be watchin' out for dem. A good huntah be knowin' when ta pace demselves. Dese woods be foreign ta mah spear, and da prey be knowin' it well. Dis Amani be only takin' a single trophy afta many days of preparin', but dat will change wit time.

Mah kill be worn now about mah necklace, and it be standin' out good like wit da otha ears. A shame dat one was so resilient. She be fightin' dis one ta da end, though ah be enjoyin' dat too. Ah'm sure ah'll be gettin' a chance ta have mah way wit anotha when da time come. Dese Elves not so fragile and dey almost be matchin' mah kind in stature. Ah be tinkin' dat it would be bettah if da slave was more like dat. Though, da flesh of dese ones be lean and tough. It be strange...even though dese ones be mostly womenfolk, ah can see why da Orcs been havin' so much trouble. Dey once pushed deep into da forest, killin' and huntin' everyting in dey way. It not be like dat now. Dey be havin' a treaty for da forests north of dey capital. Bah!

Ah be hearin' about da Hellscream afta da cataclysm dat shook da world. Dat Orc be knowin' how it be and was tryin' ta take da land from dese Elves while dey was weak. Maybe da Darkspear should have been leadin' da way back den since he failed. He even be bringin' ruin ta da Shatterspear. Da Orcs be sayin' dat da Elves was led by a great Loa, a wolf dat be havin' a champion among da Alliance. Dey forced da Horde from dere forests years ago, and now let dem scavenge da lessah woods.

How long dat gonna last?

"Da bijou filled wit honey sometimes be claimin' more spirits den da one wit blood. Ain't dat right, Hierophant?

It been long since dis Amani be communin' wit Huitzul. Ya adherent been busied wit da hunting and watchin' of da Horde. Much time has passed since ah be arrivin' in dis strange place, but dat be no excuse for not payin' heed ta da pale watcha. Ah'll be makin' offerings ta Hir'eek soon so dat Huitzul keep dis one in dey sights. Last ah be peerin' in dem eyes be before da Tunda Bluff place, and dey fur been bristlin' when dey soar about since den...

Huitzul be showin' ya envoy all he be seein' through da eyes of da beast. Nothing be escapin' his gaze on da land, but someting be catchin' mah eye special like. Da slave was meetin' one dey kind in da Tauren place while dis Amani'shi was off erasin' da shame of da Gurubashi envoy. Dat fool failed da Zanchuli and ah needed ta leave all but Bwa'chech behind while on da hunt. Still, even wit Huitzul watchin' dem, da littah Elf met wit dis stranger many times... Mah property was needin' ta know dey place again.

When ya adherent first be seein' dis ah be wanting ta hang da slave by dey ankles ovah da Southfury. Let dem choose between talkin' about what dey friend was tellin' dem and da hungry crocolisk below. Den ah be rememberin' whatcha told dis Amani. Dat da soft hand can sometimes be drawin' out more den da whip... Joo was right. Ah be not even needin' da bloodthistle like before. Bein' ya envoy be difficult, but it be teachin' dis huntah much dat can't be done wit da spear.

Ah could smell dey fear once dis Amani was finished speakin' wit Huitzul. Dey be knowin' dey was seen. So ah be waiting until dey fear be growin' more undah dey skin. Afta dat be when ah usually grab dey braid and raise dem into da air until dey bones shake. Instead, ah be actin' slow and warm like. Be speakin' gentle and treatin' dem like dey be pleasin' dey mastah. Even be feedin' dem before mahself. Mah bruddahs would nevah be believin' da sight, but it be worth da patience. Wit a bit of stridah in dey gullet, and some dat Pandaren wine ta follow, dey was singin' like dey was Quetlikun! Da secrets dey was hiding be spillin' like blood den.

Dis otha Elf was pourin' tings into da slave's ears, weak tings and lies like all dey kind be good for. But, worst of all, dey was...Farstridah. Been long since mah necklace was wearin' one dem as trophies. Can joo be believin' da fool promised ta kill dis Amani'shi? Ah be hearin' dat before and ah gonna hear dat again many times. Even den da Elf could not be keepin' pity out dey words when dey heard how da slave be taught ta talk. Ah long be tellin' dem dat dey kind nevah gonna be wanting dem, dat dey not belong dere. Dey be feelin' it and ah be takin' dat ta make dem proud ta serve. Da Zandalari be kind ta gift dis Amani such a well trained ting. Dey was conditioned since before dey was given on mah return home. Still...

Ah slave be a dangerous ting. Ah be knowin' dat, and it be good dis one fear mah wrath as it should. Bein' ya envoy mean walkin' among dese lessah races, stayin' mah arrows and watchin' mah tongue. Ah be needin' Huitzul and ah can't be havin' dem watchin' only da slave forevah. Dat be meanin' da slave gonna need come along more soon... Dey gonna meet many peoples, and dey gonna fill dey head wit many tings. Proddin' dem ta use against dis Amani in time ah wager. Ya adherent gonna be needin' ta make sure dey know dey place and dat dey not even dare tink of anyting else. And for dat ah gonna be needin' more den fear. Ah gonna be followin' ya advice, Hierophant. Gonna soon not need ta draw dem in dey fate, by da Loa. Da slave gonna come runnin' ta dis Amani willingly.

Not all chains can be seen, eh?

"Da time ta put ya ways ta da test be approachin', Hierophant.

Dis one been keepin' da slave off kilta wit ya lessons, showin' dem dey place and makin' dem want ta be dere. Da mastahs of da slaves brought behind da walls of Zul'Aman would be proud of dis Amani, eh? If only all Elves were knowin' dey place beneath da Troll heel. Soon dat "Cantina" will be happenin' again, and ya envoy gonna be bringin' anudda set of ears dat will maybe draw loose more words from dese Horde.

Ya adherent been investigatin' da forests ta da north of dey Orc city in da mean time. Dey be callin' it "Azshara," and it be da woods dat da Alliance be givin' dem. Da trees dere be feelin' more familiar ta dis Amani, and da game be plenty too, but dere be a sickness about da land. Ruins belongin' ta da Elves littah da grounds and cliffs dat sink into da sea. Naga beasts be roamin' aplenty dere abouts wit dey slithering and hissin' dat would rival even da great Hethiss. But da worst of it be dat da woods be infested wit da Goblin vermin! Dey be foulin' da forest wit dey loud metal tings and foolish ways. Dey even be ruinin' da land wit monuments and da like...it be revolting. Dis one remembah ya tales of da Goblins when dey was slaves ta da Zandalari. Why da Horde does not place dem in chains and see dem mining like da Zanchuli did baffles dis Amani'shi. Da only good dat be comin' from dere kind be dat dey gonna use all da lumbah dere soon enough. Den da Horde gonna be lookin' ta da Ashenvale again, ah knows it!

Dem tings aside... dere also be venerable creatures in da forests, tings dat ah be wonderin' long about. Ah was glimpsin' some dem and dey dens in da Ashenvale, but dere be less covah in Azshara and so da hold be easy ta see. Ya envoy be seein' many bear men dat be remindin' dis one of Nalorakk. Dey even be havin' totems propah like ta worship, though dey seem ta pray ta more den one... Even if not da children of our Loa, ah not be wantin' ta anger da bear spirit and so ah be leavin' dem be from mah huntin'. Ah even be doin' bettah and layin' offerings of Goblin at dey totems from da shadows. Ah know ah be ya envoy, but ah doubt anybody gonna be carin' if some dem vanish. Besides, da more ah hunt? Da more appear in da land seekin' ta replace da dead ones! Da huntin' could be very good here. But, dis Amani could not be stayin' dere too long since dere be preparations ta be made.

Ah headed back today ta make sure da slave be ready for da Horde meetin' place. Dey loyalty gonna be watched by ya servant close like. And, at last, Huitzul gonna be free of dem so dat he can be watchin' dis Amani from afar. Ah be bringin' da slave ta da cliffs ovahlookin' dat shanty ship. Be tellin' dem how dey gonna be. Dat bay be where da Alliance came when da old Warchief failed. Da Hellscream was weak and lost control of his subjects. His slaves revolted and usurped da Orc when he shoulda known ta kill dem long before. Da slave be knowin' now dat her mastah not be so foolish, and dat death be awaitin' da disobedient. Whethah dey truly know dey place...we shall see.

"Drokognir.

Dat be da name of da weapon dat can be killin' demons ya envoy told joo about, Hierophant. Da slave was speakin' true about what dey heard. Dey call it da "Demon Terror" and dis Amani seen it wit mah own eyes, a great spear wit a strange shape. When ya adherent first be hearin' about such a ting he was tinkin' of trying ta take da weapon for da Zanchuli ta keep. Da Hex Lord Malacrass be da last ah seen among da tribe dat could be bendin' demons ta his will, but he still was needin' da essence of da Loa. Such a powahful weapon could be servin' da will of Zul great like, afta all. But...dis one now be tinking different and dat it best be left alone.

Dis Amani'shi met da wieldah of da spear, da Orc dat dis Horde be callin' Shokkra. Dey clan be da Warsong. Dey seemed ta also have a littah elf as a pet, though she be somewhat affectionate ta da ting. Still, dere be promise in dis one and Zanza be praised for dat. In time dis Orc could maybe be an ally. Dey be anotha dat see da world how it really is, and bettah yet dey not feelin' dat dey belong ta da Horde wit how it be now. Dey be tellin' ya servant of dis Drokognir, dat it be a weapon blessed by da elements on da Orc world of Draenor. Ah be believin' dem afta seein' it since da spear be havin' strong mojo. Da elements be strict wit who dey lend da powah to and ah be tinkin' dat no Amani could be wieldin' such a ting witout da same Orc blessings. Da Zandalari could, of course, wit time as all tings...but, such a treasure would surely be sought afta in pursuit by da Horde. Besides, dis Shokkra be impressin' ya envoy wit dey words and spirit.

Ya envoy was growin' wearied and disheartened wit his task before dis meetin'. Da Farraki remains a puzzle and one dat be grindin' down mah patience wit dey tricks. Ah was hopin' dat maybe dis Amani could be findin' an ally in dem, but it not lookin' ta be so right now. Da Bloodshine be a Zulfi dat turned dey back on dere tribe and dat disrespects da Loa! And even worse be when dis Amani encountered a Loa-speakah dat was sayin' nothing but blasphemy! Ah not be sayin' dey name, ah be cursin' it before disrespectin' joo wit da sight. But dey teach dis Amani someting. Da Darkspear be worse off den ah was expectin', even while ah knew dat dey always been weak. Dey be forgettin' da old ways and dey heritage. Dey be forgettin' what da Zandalari done for all Trolls. Dey be a Priestess of Shirvallah and ah be pityin' da Loa dat need be endurin' dey prayers. Yes, dis task be testin' ya envoy in ways ah nevah could be seein', Hierophant.

Da Shokkra Orc be remindin' dis one dat dere be hope for dis Horde. Dey all remind dis Amani of da tribes when Zul be bringin' da Trolls togetha again. Many and plenty different, but bickerin' and wit old grudges. Da difference between us be dat da Horde don't have da Zandalari ta guide dem and keep da peace. Ah was talkin' long wit da Warsong about how different da world would be if da Trolls had not placed dey faith in da foolish Tunda King. Da Mogu failed when dey was given everyting. Maybe da Hellscream's Horde woulda been strongah, eh? Da Kor'kron Orcs coulda been eradicatin' dey enemies wit Zandalar behind dem, dat be da truth. Dey even show reverence when da talkin' turn ta da Beast Ward and Dinomancy. It be a shame, like wit da Khorvis, dat dey not born Troll. Dey kind would be knowin' da strength da Zanchuli could offah, unlike dis Vol'jin dat still not be grantin' dis envoy an audience. Da Warsong claim dat da Warchief done littah leadin', she be sayin' dat da Banshee and even Humans be doin' bettah. Ah wondah how deep dis feelin' goes among da Horde? Dere be much yet ta learn.

Dat be why ah be watchin' da Cantina gatherin' again. Dere be too much ta ignore dat goes on at dat place. Dis time, afta usin' ya methods, ah brought da slave. Ah be callin' dem mah servant and it be strange how littah words can change tings. Ah wondah how da Elves dere be tinkin' of dat, one dey own serving dis Amani! But, da slave be provin' demselves ta dey mastah. Dey be listenin' in da chaos like ya envoy, and be puttin' dey senseless drawin' ta good use at last. Da pichas dey make hold many faces and insignias of dese Horde. Amani nevah forget dat dey see, and now Huitzul also gonna be rememberin' dem even bettah. Ah be tinkin' dat in time da Horde gonna be talkin' ta mah slave more. Maybe dey gonna let slip tings ta dem dat dey would not be sayin' in mah shadow, eh? Da slave been rewarded and dis one knows dey gonna be more useful den ah first thought while here.

Dat be all dis Amani can be writin' for now, Hierophant. Ah gonna be investigatin' someting strange happenin' recently in da mean time. It seems da Horde be givin' away dey young for some days. Ah wondah if dey be demandin' dem back? Quetlikun would be enjoyin' such an offering...

"Sanctuary...

Forgive ya envoy, Hierophant. Dis Amani be failin' joo. Everyting was going well and just as joo was sayin' until ah heard dat name. Da Shokkra spoke of it before and othas questioned dem about such tings. Dat be da order dey serve and sworn dey axes ta. Slowly dis Amani started listenin' for anyting about dese people, but it be more hushed in da Horde den how dey talk about da Grim. It only be afta ya last missive dat ah be learnin' da truth, and ah seen it now clear like. Dis "Sanctuary" be a disease in da Horde, a dangerous ting dat can cripple dem from da inside.

Ah was expectin' warriors like da Warsong. Dey speak proud and joo know what dis Amani'shi saw in dem. As envoy ah be ta learn about and watch ovah dis weakah Darkspear Horde, but dere be da otha task too. Ya adherent supposed ta be showin' dem all what da Zandalari can be offerin', even if dis Vol'jin nevah gonna grant me audience. Ah offah ta share wit dat Warsong da old ways ta strengthen dis bond. Dey could know a littah maybe how it woulda been if Kazra'jin were hunting still. Ah offah dem even more afta joo was advisin' dis Amani. How bettah ta show da Horde da strength of Zul den ta teach one dey champions our ways, eh? Dey accepted ya terms and dat woulda been dat...but, by den ah had heard too much about dis Sanctuary. Da Warsong be wit a sickness because of dem, an illness dat gonna be makin' dem weak before dey know it. In time, and wit ya aid, ah coulda maybe been callin' dem Shokkra'rohk. But now? Only da Loa can be knowin'.

Dis Sanctuary be weak and ah not know how far dey weakness spread among da Horde. Da Warsong say othawise, dat dey can be fightin' even if she claim ta be dey fangs. Dey preach da peace wit dey enemies and dream fool tings. Dey forbid da hunting of ya foes, waitin' for dem ta strike ya helpless like. Dey sheltah da weak dat would be dyin' and going ta da spirits. Even da Warchief before, da Hellscream dis Shokkra honor, hunted dem down until dey was hidin' for dey lives. Dat be what dis Amani be hearin' when ah seek dat name wit da cunning of Huitzul. Such be da work of da weak, ta weaken everyting around dem so dat dey maybe not appear so weak anymore. Da Warsong be afflicted like dis, and it be takin' ya servant by surprise deep like.

Ah know dat ah seen in dis Orc. Dey spoke like da tribe and wielded da mojo strongly...and yet dey seem like anudda person when dis Amani confront dem. How could dis be da Orc dat knew how da world coulda been and how it be? Dey was Kor'kron and now turn dey back on everyting dey be sayin' before. Dey be betrayin' dey bruddahs and sistahs... Ah could not be teachin' dem anyting like dis, Hierophant. Ah know joo undahstand dat da Loa would be angered fierce if da old ways was used ta protect da weak. Ya told dis Amani before of people wit more den one soul in dey body, and dat dem spirits always be fighting. Ah tink da Shokkra be like dis and dat dey not know it. Dey be fightin' against dey nature, but how ya be inside always gonna survive. It nevah gone and dere may be hope yet once dis Sanctuary cast dem aside. Den da strongah soul, da Warsong ah be seein' in dem, will devour da otha. Ah'll be waiting for dat time. But, for now dey not be worthy of da old ways and dose of Zandalar.

Da way dey was speakin'...da fool actually be believin' dey words. Ah seen it in dey eyes. Yes, dey be filled wit da illness of da weak. It be bad juju and dat be da truth if it can bring low one dat impressed dis Amani before. Dey talk filled mah veins wit da fire dat ah thought ta maybe end dem and dey misery right dere. But, ah know dat would bring foul voodoo and disgrace joo, Hierophant. Dis Amani shared prey wit dem ovah da fire and spirits. Dat be a sign of da bond ah offah dem and da Loa frown on dem who forsake da signs dey give. Ah could not insult Zanza when ah be givin' dem his hospitality. And more, ah be ya envoy and such killin' would be bringin' ill on da will of Zul. It be a great shame dis dat disappoint ya adherent...

Still, dis meeting was not all wasted. If da Shokkra truly belong wit da weak and dey submit ta dis Sanctuary and dey sickness... well, da weak always be showin' what make dem so. Ah tink da Warsong brought dey weakness wit dem ta mah camp. Da otha elf... Dora be dey name ah heard. Dey always be givin' mah slave strange looks dat be curious like. Maybe ah can be usin' dis in mah favor for da glory of da Zandalari? Dere always be much ta learn, and dat learned can be becomin' mah spear. Da slave will have her uses yet.

"Dis Amani been prayin' ta da Loa and makin' offerings ta da shrines ah built ta dem across dis land since mah failure wit da Warsong. Ah been huntin' more in da Ashran place, showin' dese Horde da prowess da Zandalari can be offerin' dem. And now, when ah return ta mah otha tasks as ya envoy? Ah gonna be makin' offerings again so dat Zanza can be warding dis Amani'shi from da foul voodoo ah seen, Hierophant.

Ya adherent been again ta da Cantina where da Horde gatha demselves. Da ship be run by a bruddah, but dat thought no longer bring dis one any comfort. Dey be a Hexah of da Revantusk dat call demselves Tahzani, and dey be like most dey kind. Dat tribe always be dependin' on dey fancy words ta survive, clinging ta da coasts of dey land and da ankles of da Horde. Ah not tink too much of dis Revantusk since dey seem ta be no threat. Dey serve drinks peaceful like and ah not tink dem capable of much more den boiling frogs or blackenin' tusks wit da voodoo of his people. Dis Amani know bettah now den ta accept drinks from da hands of dat one...

Dis Tahzani been sick like, maybe for some time since last ah saw dem at da Warspear place. Ah was not tinking at da time dat it was bad juju brewin' inside dem. All seemed da same at da gatherin' place when ah come today ta watch dem and see what could be gleaned. Ah was not dere but a few moments before dat Revantusk keeled ovah in agony in da middle of everyone. Dey flesh boiled and dey mouth seemed ta seal itself shut while dey howled in pain. Dey contorted on da floor, writhing like ah seen othas when da hex and curses be on dem. Dis Amani not sure what he was seein' afta dat. Dere was symbols and scars on dey mouth, and when dey pry dat open? Ah hear voices dat screamed out...and none belonged ta da Revantusk. Dis Amani be knowin' now dat dey maybe hide much. Dat maybe dey no Hexah at all and instead a Souleatah, eh? Ah was havin' dese thoughts when someting caught mah eye in da commotion.

Da entire ship came ta a crawl da moment dis Tahzani fell ovah. It not mattah where dey belonged or who dey was wit. Da Horde dere flocked ta da Revantusk, seekin' ta help dem anyway dey could. Dey trust dat one deep like... Ah wondah, if dey be a Souleatah, dat dis be how dey do it? Dey lure da othas into trustin' dem, and den when dey not expectin'? He eat dem whole and keep dem in dey stomach wit his meals. Ah seen dem wit da Zulfi Bloodshine before, and it would not be surprisin' dis Amani. And afta all dat, once da pain and voodoo be gone? He lie ta dem all and dey eat da words from his hands. He was claimin' dat all be well and dat he made a deal wit da Vilebranch. Bah! Da Horde may be ignorant of da tribes, but dey must take dis Amani ta be an e'chuta if dey tink ah gonna believe dem! Dere be no Vilebranch alive dat would be makin' pacts wit a Revantusk before seein' dey head on a spear. Dis all be strange and dere be bad mojo at work, Hierophant. Ah can feel it in mah tusks.

Dis Amani been ta Jintha'Alor many times. Ah hunted alongside da Vilebranch for Revantusk and da painted Dwarves. Ah made mah offerings ta da silk dancer at Shadra'Alor and steeped mah spear in her venoms. Someting about dis be vaguely familiar ta ya envoy. Da marking on da Revantusk and da screams dat come from dey mouth. But, ah not remembah from where and ah be too far from da Hinterlands. Mah time wit da Vilebranch always be endin' wit da eating of da hunt and da beddin' of dey women. Ah not be a scribe and dey tales not all be known ta dis one. Forgive ya servant for dis lack of knowin', Hierophant. Ah only know dat whatevah voodoo dis Revantusk stepped in not gonna be ovah yet. Da spirits gonna seek dey due and ah not gonna be dere when dey consume him. Mark mah words, Shadra gonna be claimin' dat one before dey know it. Until den ah gonna need ta be watchin' dis Tahzani much closah den before.

Zul watch ovah dis faithful Amani'shi.

"Dis be da end of da Horde, Hierophant.

Da demons came wit da foul mojo jus' like da rumors dat dey was spreadin' for so long. Ah been huntin' heads on da Draenor until ah be forgettin' mahself and mah post. Dis adherent was beginning ta tink dat dese Horde was fearin' nothing but dey shadows afta all dis time. Dis Amani was wrong. Ah seen dem gatha demselves and dey champions. Da Horde got togetha wit dey greatest leadahs wit so many ships dat joo would tink dey was tryin' ta be like da Golden Fleet. And den dey left, far into da sea beyond how far Bwa'chech or Huitzul could be seein'. But dere was bad voodoo all around and dey remains told all dat dis Amani needed ta know.

Da Horde gonna be no more soon, ah can feel it in mah tusks and blood. Dey lost everyting. Dey lost so many dey bruddahs. Dey lost dey spirit. Dey even lose dey own Warchief... yes, da Vol'jin be gone and any hope for dis Horde died wit dat Darkspear. And now? Dey replace him wit da risen Elf? Dis Horde be desperate and weak, Hierophant. Dey not be worth da time of da Zanchuli. But, even knowin' dat must dis Amani beg ya forgiveness. Ah cannot be stayin' around dis place no more.

Da skies be full of dese Demons, like da Loa demselves bringin' down da wrath upon da land. Dis... dis gonna be da end of more den da Horde. Maybe dis when joo need mah eyes more den evah, Hierophant. Ya servant be unworthy of dat trust and need. But ah been away too long and now dat da world be in chaos? Dis Amani'shi need ta return ta his tribe, ta Zul'Aman. Da Amani gonna survive no mattah what it be takin', dat be true. Da eyes of Zul be upon us and ya Archons gonna guide us through dese times. Da people need ta gatha now and talk ovah da spirits and fire how ta endure dis all.

Ah lost mah slave. Da air was brimmin' wit da Demon tings, and dey fire was fallin' like da rains demselves. Bwa'chech be saddled and Quetlikun secure wit dis Amani when dey came crashin' down on mah camp. Ah seen terrible tings rise from da ground just as dese horrors come from da skies. Dis Amani was separated from da slave by dese monstahs. Dey was a gift and trophy like no bruddah ah know evah been havin', but she not worth da moss on mah hide. Ah seen Bwa'chech lift off and make way from da chaos as fightin' erupted soon afta da Demons came. Ah not see da littah Elf from da air again, but ah'm sure dat dey be dead. No slave gonna be survivin' dat. Let dey spirit be taken by da Loa ta wait for dey mastah so dat she can be servin' dis Amani when mah own time come. Dey should be tankin' Zanza dat dey was given a chance ta serve dey mastah one last time ta distract da Demons! Ha!

Maybe one day dis Amani will return. Dat be, of course, if dis Horde manage ta survive demselves. Maybe dis adherent gonna be more involved den he tinks... or hopes. Dat gonna come ta da mercy of da tribe and da spirits. Ah gonna be needin' da craft of Zul'jin himself in dese times. Dis gonna be mah last lettah, maybe for a long time, Hierophant.

May da will of Zul watch ovah joo.
