The Arathi Basin is vast, expanded. It is a pinnacle of supplies for whomever seeks it's wonders. It was the only place in the northern Eastern Kingdom to have a Gold Mine that was still operatable. It featured plenty of land to raise mounts for war and good soil for growing food. It boasted many trees capable of being used as lumber in the war effort. It was for this reason that Thrall and Cairne had ordered Vol'jin and Sylvanas Windrunner to capture it for the Horde. It was also the reason that Varian Wrynn had ordered Tyrande Whisperwind and Magni Bronzebeard to claim it for the Alliance.
The Defiler's den had never been in good condition. It did make a perfect base for the Forsaken. Forsaken wielding spades began digging the ground around the Defiler's Den. Vol'jin stood with two shamans watching over the Basin. "Soon, Sylvanas. Soon we be takin' what is rightfully da Hordes," Vol'jin spoke. Emerging from the hall was the Banshee Queen, Sylvanas Windrunner. Following her were two of the infamous Dark Rangers, Anya and Volleya would guard their queen until their deaths. "Yes, Vol'jin. The Horde will take this Basin. However, we need to make sure there is no Alliance Presence before we begin plundering it's resources," Sylvanas spoke. She picked up a small object, a whistle. Taking a breath, she blew into the whistle. It made an irratating squeak of a noise, Vol'jin covered his ears. Arriving was an elegant Eagle. Sylvanas faced the Eagle on her arm. She whispered in Gutterspeak to the creature. To Vol'jin's suprise, it nodded. "Go, the Dark Lady watches over you," Sylvanas said as the Eagle propelled itself from her grasp.
Vol'jin's armour swept in the wind, "What be yer plan, Sylvanas?"
"The Eagle will scout the Basin, and report back to me once they find any Alliance presence," Sylvanas spoke. "Anya!" Sylvanas called.
Anya paced towards the front of the Banshee Queen, she knelt down. "Yes, my queen?" she asked.
"I want you to go the front line. Whether the Eagle finds anything I know King Varian cannot resist claiming this place for the Alliance," Sylvanas.
"Smart plan, Sylvanas. How can ya make sure it'll work?" Vol'jin asked as his Troll warriors began to leave the hall.
"Vol'jin, I know that the King's armies are here. I merely sent my Eagle to see any other Alliance presence," Sylvanas replied smirking.
