A Day in the field/ And a revisit to Lion’s Arch

Adaliind started her day off as she always does.  She was prepared to go out and farm for minerals and just enjoy the beautiful day and adventures that may await her.  She started off in the Shiverpeaks Mountains in Lornar’s Pass.  She was near the Winterthaw trading post when she came across some Destroyers.  After taking care  of them she ventured further out and came across a tribe of Ettis.  Once again they were not friendly and deadly matters had to be initiated.   Lastly, she decided to visit her favorite place, Lion’s Arch.  She was one of the hero’s that had taken Scarlet down, so she was intrigued to go visit the city and see how it all fared out.  As she visited she kept hearing whispers of an Elder Dragon that might have awoken during Scarlet’s drilling in the bottom of the sea.  Adaliind’s hair raised up on the back of her neck, an Elder Dragon, a worthy opponent is all she could envision.  Only time would tell if this rumor was true.  But if it was, it was a battle she definitely would look forward to with great anticipation!

Several of the memorials seen around the city.  This one is actually thanking some of the heroes of Lion’s 

Arch for their courage and valor in defending the city.  Adaliind was amazed to find her name on the board.

Much damage and months of work it will take to rebuild Lion’s Arch

Many citizens left behind are trying to find places where they can temporarily call home.

Lionguard is trying to maintain peace and keep looters away from peoples belongings left in the rubble.

Much of the water is filled with debris, but it was nice to find this Quaggan home still intact.

Hopefully its owners will return soon. The sea is also showing signs of returning life.  Crabs, Shrimps,

schools of fish, Salmon and jellyfish are among some of the creatures seen so far.

And yet another memorial for those souls that were lost during this battle.

Truffles?

While Zeallana was questing around Kessex Hills,  she came across the Eukaryan Caves and met with Malal, a Hylek frog that watches over the caves.  He likes to have visitors dig for truffles.  What he doesn’t tell you is what FORM you will be in as you dig………

Zeallana

Zeallana

Zeallana comes from the race of humans.  She was raised by a noble family, but has yet to find her real parents.  Zeallana is a warrior.  She is young and still has much to learn, but she learns fast.  She has more of an extroverted personality.  She is not afraid to express her opinions.  She has little fear and will be the first to run into battle and fight with the best of them.  Her mentor is Commander Logan Thackery, who is Commander of the Seraph at Divinity’s Reach.  She continues to learn much from him as well as from her other instructors.  Her weapons of choice are the sword and axe, and for distance a longbow.  She fights well in hand to hand combat and has learned many forms of close combat tactics.

 Balthazar, the God of War, blessed her when she was young.  When she was 2 years old, a group of Centaurs entered her home.  She became separated from her parents and eventually found herself in an orphanage in Divinity’s Reach.  This is where she was adopted from.  She knows in her heart Balthazar was there to protect her from the Centaurs and since then she has followed his principles.  She enjoys roaming the areas near her home world and has entered the region of Kessex Hills.  She returns home from time to time to visit her adopted family and attend family functions, but her true passion is to explore the unknown and to hopefully find her real parents one day.
