The Sister Kingdom Empty The Sister Kingdom

Led by their indomitable king, Genn Greymane, the proud citizens of Gilneas once stood with the Alliance against the vile orcish Horde that sought to conquer all of Lordaeron. Gilneas survived but, in the years following the Second War, the kingdom drew ever inward. Distrustful of their former allies, the Gilneans erected a mighty wall at the borders of their land, closing off their nation - and their hearts - from an ever-darkening world. Now, many years later, as the seemingly unstoppable undead Scourge marches across Lordaeron, human civilization once again teeters on the edge of destruction. As war and terror close in all around them, the citizens of Gilneas are faced with one, terrible truth: their mighty wall cannot hold back the dead for much longer and, worse, rumors of a new threat have risen within the kingdom's borders of feral, nightmare creatures that walk upright as men but hunt and howl as wolves.

The world shook and rattled as they watched on as the undead surrounded the walls that protected their homeland from all..."Sir...they've breached the wall" came a soldier as the King stepped up moving to his telescope and looked through it, in the past he used it to simply look over the wall and to the world outside but was to see what the undead and their leader...Sylvanus the banshee queen would do next. "Start gathering the people we must protect them first." he stated as the man nodded, "but...what of the 'beasts' if we start gathering they'll come...." "we will handle that as well we are Gilneas's we do not back down!" he demanded but that didn't seem to help. The hours would go by as more and more of the people gathered at the palace and Greymane looked back off in the distance he could make out a light flashing. "tell our brothers we are going to leave the castle and make our way to the shore...we will have little choice but to retreat" he stated nodding, his guards doing as he requested. Off in the distance was another land it was rich with life and was the sister kingdom to Gilneas though they too cut off from the world allowing no other ships to dock in their ports they aided their brother kingdom.

However, nothing could prepare them for what was to come as they readied to welcome their brothers and sisters a massive explosion went off taking away much of the land and ripping apart farms and homes. The ships they had sent to pick up their allies sinking to the ocean depths. It was a plow to cut them off and to force Graymane's hand, Sylvanus was a cleaver thing and within a few hours....they knew why she was doing this. The banshee queen was the leader of the undead, bring corpses back to life with her Valkyrie and also taking life with a concoction she called the 'plague' a green substance that flowed through the channels of her kingdom and on numerous occasions past leaders ordered her to stop production. However, she never obeyed always doing what she thought was best for her...and her people. The city of Gilneas had fallen those trapped within died a slow and painful death thanks to the plague and those that lived in the neighboring kingdom isolated from the rest...watched on in horror unable to aid their brothers. However, they knew Sylvannus would mearly come after them so they had little choice but to use magics to protect their land from the undead queens grasp.

Chaos enshrined the Gilneans as plauge and war ravaged the people and their city. After many, many moons, most of the former Gilneans had evacuated their former homeland, only the true loyalists deciding to stay and continue the hold the warfront to not allow Sylvannis the opportunity to take both kingdoms. However in their new Kingdom, trouble was far from over. The sick and elderly needed medicine and treatment but the blockade made receiving any humanitarian aid almost impossible. Not to mention on their new isle, they have found that Jungle Trolls also pose a severe threat when scouring the leafy jungles for medicinal herbs and food for the people.

However, the blight of Gilneas did draw the attention of a young wanderer. One of the last remaining descendants of the last Emperor of Pandaria, young Ji-Po Shaohao had recently left the Wandering Isle of the great turtle Sheng-Zu after the ancient veiled mist surrounding Pandaria suddenly vanished. Ji-Po was as talented a monk as he was with concocting delicious brews and helpful medicines. While exploring the Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor in search of rare and delectable herbs for him to brew, he had heard wind about the plight of Gilneas and their transformation into Worgen as well as the plauged assault on their city. Believing in his abilities to make a difference, the young monk heads off towards the ruined city in hopes of being able to provide aid and relief to the suffering people, as was the Pandaren way of life."
