The Khaz Modan Expedition Group dedicates themselves to exploration, trading and storytelling. They travel the width of Azeroth far and wide to discover new points of interest, new story's and new friends.
Unlike the Explorer's League they are more interested in writing travel guides for the public and compiling a complete set of story's for each region far dating any others.
The Khaz Modan Expedition Group is very young compaired to most of the establishments based in Azeroth but does not lack in the high expectations the group wishes to uphold. It was formed mainly to preserve the wonderous landmarks around the Khaz Modan area in the Eastern Kingdoms and compile a sort of "Tour" guide for wondering travellers to see these places themselves.
After the Catacysm many areas around the world were either damaged or completely changed forever, some for good and many for ill. Not many parts around the Khaz Modan area had been affected but no one was going to take any chances. A commision was ordered to create a group who would travel to these landmarks around the regions and compile useful information and history about the place they visit.
Expedition Ranks and TitlesEdit
The structure of the group is rather loose as each member is treated more like a close friend than a rank. However such things also require paperwork and organizing therefore ranks have been created.

Explorer - The full member title for group member who have passed their stage one field exam. They are free to explore the world and report back to the Master Explorers. To progress to become a Master Explorer the explorer is required to take the Stage two field exam and pass a couple of pratical tests as well.
