[A book slams on the desk, as all the candles in the room burst to light. A hand-rolled cigarette sits smoking and unattended at the desk. Plagos draws a quill and starts writing.]
Fighting demons is easy. The Burning Legion is highly predictable. The Scourge, though overwhelming in number, is only capable of a single focus. We pushed back its seemingly unrelenting tide. This new twilight cult is highly destructive, but easily rooted out, and the Alliance is cunning, but does nothing to hide themselves.

Now admittedly, the worgen are a problem, but I'll have to cover that some other time. The threats I now fear most are those within the Horde, even inside our own ranks.

[He begins mindlessly tinkering with some mechanical device while etching his thoughts in the journal.]

A graveyard seems like a place for rest and solitude, but not these days, at least in Brill. Worgen are constantly attacking. We've been hard pressed keeping them at bay. How they are able to get past our front lines in Silverpine is beyond me, but I assume some help from the Alliance, or goblins.

One goblin in particular gave us great trouble last night after using a far seeing ritual to eavesdrop on the patrons. The presence of certain Kalimdor residents, such as Bloodaxe, unsettled me even further. We've been acquainted in the past, but that doesn't change our present climate, and I have far too many lingering suspicions. After said goblin informed me he was working in the interest of Stormwind, well...

[He shoves some loose scrolls to the side, and sets a skull on top to hold them down.]

Now more than ever I’ve taken my focus away from other things to focus directly on my own guild, and ironically it seems more than ever the eyes and ears of the Horde and Alliance are pointed directly on us. What they seem to fail to understand is that provoking a hornets' nest in such a way will eventually get you noticed. And trust me; we will attack hard, and we will be merciless.

[The cigarette burns, untouched. Ash falls to the ground.]

I suspect this goblin is Orgrimmar by now, seeking refuge within the Warchief's walls- a place into which, out of respect, we still refuse to pry!

[Plagos pinches the bridge of his nose, he continues...]

The audacity and utter foolishness of these incursions shows me one thing: that we have been lax in showing that we are not to be trifled with. Evidently the lessons of the Wrathgate have already been forgotten! Perhaps once again we need to... show a more forceful hand. We should show everyone that, after the end of the Lich King, after the occupation by the Kor'kron, we are not impotent and weak.

A few other notes: there was a curious disappearance of the mercenary blood elf, Dryx, as well as the new Forsaken recruit, right after I'd issued orders to search. I must remember that the greatest threat can come from within our own walls. I'll have to check with the Doctor whether they checked back in.

Doctor Vi'le has meanwhile returned to cavorting with his former kind, participating in a courtship with a female elf, plus bringing that fool Highspire into our employ. I at one time saw these “blood” elves and their knights as our greatest assets and allies. But with the Sunwell restored, they are just another political obstacle around which we must navigate.

I doubt that Silvermoon sees things our way any longer, not like they did when they begged for our help in stopping the Legion and purging the Scourge from their precious forests. Even now they only seek our help in pushing the mindless dead from their land. In reality, all of Lordaeron should rightfully belong to the Forsaken. But as long as the Dark Lady wills it, they are our allies.

One thing is certain from all this: The Gallows is no longer safe in the open. We're going to have to find a more enclosed venue, even if it less than welcoming.

[Plagos slams the book closed and his cape glides across the ground as he storms back out the door.]

[A trail of ash lays silently on the desk.]

(( I love it. I wish I could get to the Gallows more and help. I was also wondering if Doc's actions were going to catch the eye of the Plaguefather. :P ))

((I don't know, I'm starting to see this as how he most often thinks. I think I'm just taking the time to be more expressive about it.

Either that or he is finally about to doom himself. I can't really be sure at this point! :D))
