On the 6th of September the Guild gathered, as agreed, at the Town Hall in Southshore, planning a mission to trace the source of the letters to Van Cleef back to Silverpine, to learn the Scourge's purpose.
Despite this call to arms the meeting was far from easy. First Guild Master Nichollas announced that he would be forced to step down, to maintain the illusion that he was still loyal to Rall he was forced to travel on a mission that would take him out of contact for many months. After a touching farewell the remaining members went to the inn to plan their assault, only for a fight to break out between Groling and Talathonos!
In the Inn Groling claimed to be a member of the Worgen race, a rogue from behind the Gilneas wall ... a wall guarded for generations by Talathonos' family. Talathonos hotly denied that any could have escaped, Groling in turn claimed to have slain the watching guards when he did so. Combat was only prevented by Alviana's intervention, but both Groling and Talathonos left at speed.
As a result it was a much reduced group that made it's way into Silverpine seeking the Scourge camp where Pelontir was sure the letters had come from. The camp was not hard to find, but it turned out to be heavily defended by Scourge minions, requiring stealth, rather than brute force, to enter. Pelontir, Alviana, Asfalath and Estel made the attempt, penetrating some of the buildings in the base, but were quickly discovered and surrounded!
Realizing that they had been expected, and were now almost caught in a trap, the Lux members fled, fighting their way through the tightening cordon of undead. Estel was separated from the rest, who forded the lake beyond the base, fighting undead Murlocks and werewolves, before finally reaching the safety of the ruins of Dalaran.
