Baal Moloch Background
Baal Moloch
Angkar Plainstrider was a typical Tauren Brave for the most part, large, powerful and stoic. He chose the warrior's path as a way to protect those in need and was rewarded for his diligence by being assigned to BloodHoof village, the better to protect the next generation of Braves and Spiritwalkers for his people. He was experienced in battle against the Harpies, Quillboar and Centaur, the latter most of all having been one of the Tauren to survive the exodus to Mulgore.
Likewise, Farina Windspeaker was quite the opposite. Petite of frame, especially for a Tauren, she was a generation younger than Angkar and much smaller. Angkar stood an impressive seven and a half feet in height and weighed close to 400 lb., while Farina barely topped six feet and weighed a petite 190 lb. Still the Earthmother conspired to bring them together in Bloodhoof when it came under attack by Galak Centaur one fateful autumn evening.
Angkar and Farina had been trapped in the upper level of the inn

Rorg Wolven-Heart
Rorg Wolven-Heart is the firstborn son to Karg a veteran of the Second War who retired to become a Guardsman in Orgrimmar and Felika a trader well known along the Drag in the Horde Capitol. A fierce warrior whose fury seems boundless, Rorg prides himself as a "whirling death machine" and often allows his weapons to speak for him. Nonetheless he is rarely foolish, knowing what role he best serves in battle and relies on the strengths of others to win the day.
Like his younger sister Magwar, Rorg is an accomplished Blacksmith but rather than focus on mining materials to accommodate his skills, he prefers to mix his talents with Leather working, the better to craft grips for blades and padding for better armor. Despite their differences Rorg was instrumental in helping his sister take her first steps down the path of the warrior, having crafted her first axe for her and given her her first few years of training.
Rorg spends a good deal of time seeking out what he might deem to be "worthy"

Wilona Soft-Hoof
Wilona Soft-Hoof is the only daughter to Yonn Deepcut and Gennia Runetotem, the chief skinner and Druid instructor of Bloodhoof village in Mulgore. Her closest friend growing up was her older Cousin Baal Moloch "Sacred Bull". It was not uncommon for them to be mistaken for siblings, such was the strength of their bond. In many ways, they were mirrors of one another. Both Tauren. Both destined to follow the Druidic path. Both quiet and soft spoken, contemplative to a fault.
But that was where the similarities ended. Wilona was female, Baal obviously male as evidenced by his larger and heavier built stature. Wilona was patterned in white with lightly brown splotches of color while Baal was a graying color with black contrasts. Wilona's skin was pure and hardly blemished. Baal's hide was spattered with scars from a lifetime of conflict. Where Wilona was a devout healer and teacher of the Earth Mother's ways, Baal had found a different calling, one born of slow reaction but powerful decisi

Magwar Wolven-Heart
Magwar Wolven-Heart is an Arms specialist warrior of the Thunderlord Clan of Orcs. Her brother Rorg is a powerful Fury warrior and was responsible for a great deal of her warrior training. Magwar herself desires nothing more to be the greatest female warrior in the Horde and hopes to someday rival Orgrim Doomhammer, Kargath Bladefist, Grommash Hellscream and the like with her reputation. As it stands, she has a long way to go.
Aside from battle Magwar is a skilled blacksmith and takes great pride in her creations, always looking for new and better techniques and materials with which to stay a step ahead in the Horde war machine. She's been a long time friend of Wilona Soft-Hoof and was introduced to her friend by Rorg when he went to Thunder Bluff to visit his old adventuring companion, the Druid Baalmoloch.
One of two offspring, her father Karg is one of the guards who loyally protects the rear gate of Orgrimmar into Azshara. Her mother is a trader called Felika who wanders the Drag i

Elisabeth Barstrom
Elisabeth Barstrom is a wicked and cruel woman, or at least, she is now that she's dead. Little is known about her former life, only that she was single, and human. She seems to have once hailed from a noble family, given her expensive tastes and attire. Now a less than prominent member of the Forsaken Undercity in Tirisfal Glades, she's a fairly well known Warlock specializing in the subtler application of Affliction.
A power broker of the highest caliber, to Liz the ends justify the means. After all if a dozen warriors die in battle so that the army may claim victory how is that different than cutting down trees for their lumber? Or the peasant humans who die as a side effect of a bio-agent released into the Alliance lands? As long as the winners come out on top... While cynical, and in many ways spoiled, she's an expert in her fields of enchantment and has an eye for cloth wares that rivals many Blood Elf fashion designers.
She also takes particularly vile pleasure in tormenting tho

Chy'Jan
Chy'Jan is a Troll Shaman of the Zandalar Tribe with a particularly potent affinity for the Elements. She is also a consummate herbalist from her time in the Stranglethorn Vale jungles and is quite adept at mixing potions as well. She's been long time friends with Magwar Wolven-Heart of the Thunderlord Clan. It was through Magwar that she met and eventually became friends with Wilona Soft-Hoof. While technically part of the Zandalar tribe, her Father was a raider of the Gurubashi tribe, an aspect evident in her blue-green skin pigment.
Like many of her tribesman, she was a bit of an isolationist until encountering Magwar and Wilona in the Jungles fighting Alliance reconnaissance scouts. The three joined forces to escape the Human ambush and ended up regrouping with Wilona's cousin Baalmoloch and Magwar's older brother Rorg. From there they made their way about, eventually getting Chy'jan home to Yojamba island before moving on back to Grom'Gal. Before they departed, Chy'jan had rejoine

Gideon
Gideon is the main character and focal point of our story. A man displaced, he finds himself in a world he knows nothing about, doesn't speak the languages, and has nothing in the way of local currency. Fortunately for us, that really doesn't change anything for our main man! Gideon is a hunter of many talents and boasts not only impressive skills but an equally impressive arsenal. While he may be quiet, enigmatic and even blase to a fault, he knows his trade and lives for it.
Gideon comes from a tribal people similar in culture to both the Orc Clans and Tauren tribes, though physiologically bears more in common with Elves or Humans. His culture focuses on the Hunt, with everything else falling to the side. Teamwork and hard effort are his values, but he isn't above or below tackling something alone if he has to. His people tend to be less "savage" and more feral in behavior. As mentioned, he rarely speaks but commonly hisses, growls and snarls to express himself. And of course, body l

Just an idea of what we're in to!

Well everyone, welcome and hello! I'm Brandon, the writer and crazed idea-man of this weirdness. As most of you could probably tell, I'm a gamer. ergo, I'm a nerd, geek, dork, or any of several dozen colorful epithets to describe a deviant. That being said, I feel right at home! My friend and Partner Az, whom I am hoping will take the time and effort to crawl out of his protection totems atop Pokke Mountain to say a few words here, is the artist for our little experiment. Speaking of which, on to the show!
  Az and I are both gamers in many ways. White Wolf Game Studios, Games Workshop, TSR and Wizards of the Coast and a veritable plethora of video game companies including Blizzard entertainment and Capcom to name just a few. A while back I came up with the idea of blending Capcom's lush and challenging world of Monster Hunter with Blizzards Warcraft franchise. All in a tasteful story form, of course. However fear of villianous reprisal from the Ancestor Fatalis, and Arthas the Lich King along with lawyers hungry for the blood of copyright infringes stayed my hand and kept me quiet and sullen.
  Recently I have found dozens of honorific stories, artwork and similar pieces that use the aforementioned mediums. As a result we have finally decided to get this ball rolling and share our stories with you! Monsters of War is the tale of a Hunter, displaced from the world he knows and tossed most uncouthly into the world of Azeroth just after the fall of the Lich King. A stranger in a strange land we will be following his adventures and those of the many people who come into contact with our Hunter and find their lives changed for it. While the artwork is still, well, in the works, We will be updating regularly with character profiles, story snippets and side tales for your viewing pleasure and entertainment. Please feel free to comment, we'd love to hear your feedback!
As the story evolves so too will the medium, hopefully turning into a webcomic sometime in the next few months. If you like what you read, let us know and if you happen to play World of Warcraft and think your character might make a fascinating addition to the story, by all means tell us about him or her! Commissioning artistic pieces for other people of their characters is something Az has mentioned is on his to-do list, and I'm pretty sure I can come up with some sneaky little way to slip your character into the story if you'd like. For now, thank you everyone for your support and here's hoping you enjoy our stories as much as we enjoy telling them!
