Indeed so, Webbles.

____

In towns in and around Khaz Modan, the following notice can be found:
DANGER

The Azure Flame are violent cult bent on the destruction of Khaz Modan! If spotted, report their whereabouts to a mountaineer.

These notices all have been put up by a death knight, remarkably still cold to the touch.

____

*In response to the announcement to Ironforge Senate and the new wanted posters regarding Skarain and Azure Flame appearing around Khaz Modan, a letter arrives in an envelope together with the usual mail to the Wardens of Azeroth headquarters, addressed to Steyen Duskblade - whose name is followed by a finely drawn pink heart. The letter have no sender. The envelope is of industrial made paper, extremely common and ordinary. The ink used to write the address is likewise ordinary.*

*Within the envelope is another envelope. This one is simply addressed to Steyen Duskblade. The wax seal that closes the envelope bears the symbol of a blue flame. This envelope is made of another quality of paper that is slick to the touch and interesting enough, both water and airproof. The ink seems perfectly ordinary. No magical energy seems to be present in the envelope or in the letter within.*

*Cracking the wax seal and opening the curious envelope reveals a letter inside. If the second envelope seemed unusual, the letter itself breaks all the norm of ordinary. The paper used seems parched and fragile. The ink used is of a hue of blue and smells slightly of alcohol. The letter is written in simple but fine handwriting.*


The Letter:

This Letter is "Out of Character" information that may not be used as material in roleplaying, unless you are the owner of the letter. It was posted on public for general reading enjoyment, and to sheen more light into the inner workings of The Azure Flame from an In Character standpoint.
To Steyen Duskblade

From Skarain Feirand

___

Good Steyen.

Things have spiral out quite far from what was originally agreed, don't you agree? Last time I remember, you were interested on striking a deal, knowledge in exchange of wiggling out a pardon for a certain someone. I waited and waited but ah, you sent me no letter. And I who were so expecting forward to our meeting in candlelight, discussing matters of the dark without neither ones associates standing out in the open or lurking under magical cloaking. Alas, the dreams that we have - roughly half of them ends up buried. Amongst them this meeting of ours.

There is more that I find curious. Not only did you chose to ignore me so coldly, but you ended onto two ends of conflicting opinions with my associates in Tol Barad Peninsula, amidst a most charming graveyard from what I hear. You could have at least sent me a letter, demanding an explanation, or the knowledge gained surrendered. But no, you found it more fitting to brand my entire gathering of like-minded fellows as outlaws and cultists. I can assure you, we are only the former, living "outside" the "laws" of Alliance.

Last time I saw, Tol Barad was not an Alliance town but a pesky little isle in the middle of nowhere that both the Horde and Alliance would, oh, just love to possess to gain a militaristic advantage. Yet, the area remain contested and as far as I can see, in a standstill. Those of mine did commit no crime on Alliance territory and nobody that you would miss got hurt.

It seems that the Alliance trend is to brand whoever that happens to cross their paths with crossing interests as an enemy of the state. Quite a healthy diplomatic approach to have, that is. Not excluding the armada and armaments that climb as high as to shadow out the sun and all light even if one gets as far as to "negotiate" with the mentioned world-power.

Does hearing this make you still wonder why some of us, those with sufficient power and knowledge chose to split off from the Alliance? Oh, I can assure you, we tried to fit in. We tried to blend in and play by your rules, yet all that we got was scorn and spit upon our faces - no matter how nice we try to be.

Yet, while you did not see fit to ask for an explanation onto why The Azure Flame was to Tol Barad, I shall grant you that.

My associates were on the island, as part of my suggestion, to which they agreed. The cult in question whose camp we wrecked was one I had been doing negations with. The Azure Flame seeks knowledge and does not discriminate the source. In my negotiations, it turned out pretty soon that the entire "cult" was only a gathering of imbeciles following blindly the orders of their extra-mysterious "master". Since the whole lot struct me as the crazed sort, I did propose to my associates to take them down - for the good of the world and to expand our own knowledge while at it.

In that regard, I must say that what they tried to do: create constructs of bone, infused with the souls of the innocent (or whoever poor sod would end to their hands) turned out to be extremely impractical knowledge to us. There is not a single practitioner of necromancy in our ranks that would be interested of binding the massive load of souls to create such an aberration. Not only such is immoral, but our interests are scholarly, not raising an army. Where would we be needing such? Besides, trying to raise an undead army would surely irk Ebon Blade, Cenarion Circle, Argent Crusade and every other world-protecting organisation out there. That is not the kind of attention that we need. Destroying or dominating the world is not included in our list of interests.

While still on the subject, my associates did bring one of the dark-robed fellas whose camp we razed alive to our stronghold, hiding him from view before you and yours showed up to the site. I must say, he had quite the self-destructive tendencies. Apparently, failing your master means that you are unworthy to live, lesser than a worm and not deserving to live. While tearing his memory into pieces, I did come across the face of his employee. A pretty dead looking Blood Elf, a bullet-size hole decorating their once-so-fancy forehead. Our dark-robed friend remembers his boss making reference to "the Damned" in a sense that I presume means more than reanimated deceased people in general. If you can make any use of that knowledge, feel free to!

And yes. Our friends, whom camp we razed, were definitely a cult. Following "the Master"'s word and whatnot. Let me elaborate what is the difference between "them" and "us", as you and your associates to the Senate have this awful tendency to fling the word "Cultist" into places where it does not belong.

A Cult is a near fanatical sect that follows a religion, deity or belief. Can be Light, Old Gods, Loa, The ancient spirit of the Oak or whatnot. A mysterious master also qualifies, if one worships that thing.

We worship nothing. We follow no religion. We bow to no Master. Thus, we are not a Cult.

What the Azure Flame is a 'Collective'. A loosely linked group of individuals, connected by our interest to magic and our will to remain unbound. We bow to no king or queen, leader nor tyrant. Each one of us is free to pursue the path of their choosing without restrictions and discrimination. While this obviously does sound reckless and dangerous to you, we do self-regulation in place and decide internally if some of us have step out of the line and became a risk for the collective. None of us are a supporter of mindless slaughter, madness or stupidity - and we like to keep it that way.

We left the Alliance knowing that the faction would not accept our ways. We have kept out. We have stayed away. Yes, we have stayed to Westfall. Yes, we kept a gathering point to Dun Morogh for a time. Those were only temporary solutions, never meant to be permanent, although our departure from Kharanos got a slight shove after quite horrendously failed negotiations with Senator Bavragor. You can't expect me to consider it my duty to oblige to a demand of a Senator to create anti-magical bullets through my skills in enchantment when I am the Speaker, the public face of a collective that -expected- the Alliance to turn against us at some point. It's like you handing a dagger to the hands of an Orc to be used to stab you in the back later. That is where my official "Outlawfullness" started, after we made a quite blasting departure from the "hospitality" of Ironforge, regardless of whether you want to believe this "slippery tongue spilling lies about senators" that the Ironforge Officials oh so lovely worded.

Spread posters all around Khaz Modan for what all I care. We don't have the 'slightest' of interest in that area, whether you chose to believe me or not. We have left the Alliance for good, without the slightest of intention to ever come back, "ask forgiveness" or whatever disillusioned thoughts you might have.

Not a single denizen of Khaz Modan have seen the symbol of blue flame in nearly a year, and if destruction of Khaz Modan is what you are after, issue a call to the Twilight's Hammer or The Burning Legion instead of us. I am sure they'd be more than happy to raze the mountain-kingdom to the ground for you.

What more, The Ironforge Senate have issued a bounty not only on me, but to my associates. Let me warn you, they 'tread on dangerous waters'. We have kept away, as far as we can from the Alliance. Our paths cross once, and the Alliance decide to start hunting us. Like a cornered beast, chase us long enough; we will turn and bare our fangs.

You do 'not' want that.

Have you ever felt desperation? To have your life crumble all around you, leaving you with nothing? You probably have, as a Death Knight. I to have seen that. I have both felt and witnessed that. My Master Drustai, the second most powerful individual necromancer on Azeroth, rivalled probably only by Amal'thazad, the Arch-Lich of the Ebon Blade, was inches away from turning all of her knowledge against the Alliance. All that because an Alliance Judge saw it fit to turn against those whom you cared about, instead of her. If not for me standing by her side, she might have just done that.

Likewise, those under The Azure Flame are now my family. They may be the most dysfunctional family ever, but a family nonetheless. I will take whatever action that I need to protect what I have built. It have so far mostly meant about staying out of reach, but I am willing to change my approach if needed.

Should you see a reason to respond, the address I have given you have not changed.


Signed by,

Skarain Feirand

Speaker of The Azure Flame


Ps: Keep the letter away from fire. It catches fire extremely lightly. I had originally planned on to cast a minor enchantment to cause the letter to combust once read but I decided otherwise. Spread it to your friends for what all I care.

pss: Don't bother to ask a mage to scry for me using the letter. I already cast spells to mess up with the sympathy, not to even mention the other protections I have around me.

Well I could recognize Virra's shadow outline anywhere. I hope I can actually be a floating skull again or something entirely else and see what you people are up to.

Sure, Sieg. A skulking skull is always welcome to float amongst us.

And now, a short Q&A.

Q: What will be your plans come Legion?
A: The Azure Flame intends to relocate to Dalaran, which is both a Neutral city and the center of efforts against the Legion on The Broken Isles. We will probably set camp to legerdemain Longue, the neutral coffee shop close to the profession trainers and run our business out from there. Few of us like the thought of bowing down to Demonic Overlords, so we shall be doing our own part in bringing the Invasion to an End.

Q: Does the Azure Flame accept Demon Hunters?
A: Yes, on an "individual basis". It is likely that AF would find the assistance of a DH useful in the fight against the Legion, but whether one such would be welcome as a full-time member is another question. Amongst the AF there is an unwritten rule to "not take liabilities", so in other words, we are not overly accepting towards characters whom we will have to "watch over". Demon Hunters are in lore described as struggling to maintain control over the demon within from time to time. If the DH in question would be stable enough, with little risk of losing control, we would be willing to consider one as a member. There is of course a question on what a Demon Hunter would seek amongst a group of darkcasters, rogue-mages and other Alliance split-aways. Perhaps a feeling of belonging, as we do not shun fel-users. Depends on the character, most likely.

Ironforge Senate Session, 20th of October
Written by Chancellor Blackforge.

Steyen Duskblade began by reporting an appeal have come in from a wanted criminal of Ironforge, Skarain Feirand. As she and her group intends on joining the fight against the Legion, it would seem counter-productive to have a warrant on their members in these dire times when they come to aid. After some discussions back and forth regarding this, a vote was called for handling the matter, resulting in a nullification of the warrant. They are free to come and go as they wish, to better fight the Legion.

[...]

When the reports were done, the word got free. First to raise a topic was Skarain Feirand that wished to contact a person responsible for diplomacy and such, to which we pointed out that our Seat of Relations had recently left us. However we still have our Seat of Transactions, which should suit the need for now. Recommended her to send a letter to him to be able to reach him...
