The Herald is the culmination of my character Dreanna's roleplaying on Steamwheedle Cartel. It's the close of a chapter and the start of a new. It's a work in progress and I hope those that read it enjoy and feel inspired to roleplay more. Updates to follow as soon as I write them. Not to be used for Meta-gaming please.

Prostrating himself before her he replied 'Apologies for my behaviour mistress. I did not mean to threaten you! I will tell you again what I have learned.'
