Exile of the High Elves7,300 years before Warcraft I "As the centuries passed, the night elves' new society grew strong and expanded throughout the budding forest that they came to call Ashenvale. Many of the creatures and species that were abundant before the Great Sundering, such as furbolgs and quilboars, reappeared and flourished in the land. Under the druids' benevolent leadership, the night elves enjoyed an era of unprecedented peace and tranquility under the stars.
However, many of the original Highborne survivors grew restless. Like Illidan before them, they fell victim to the withdrawal that came from the loss of their coveted magics. They were tempted to tap the energies of the Well of Eternity and exult in their magical practices. Dath'Remar, the brash, outspoken leader of the Highborne, began to mock the druids publicly, calling them cowards for refusing to wield the magic that he said was theirs by right. Malfurion and the druids dismissed Dath'Remar's arguments and warned the Highborne that any use of magic would be punishable by death. In an insolent and ill-fated attempt to convince the druids to rescind their law, Dath'Remar and his followers unleashed a terrible magical storm upon Ashenvale.
The druids could not bring themselves to put so many of their kin to death, so they decided to exile the reckless Highborne from their lands. Dath'Remar and his followers, glad to be rid of their conservative cousins at last, boarded a number of specially crafted ships and set sail upon the seas. Though none of them knew what awaited them beyond the waters of the raging Maelstrom, they were eager to establish their own homeland, where they could practice their coveted magics with impunity. The Highborne, or Quel'dorei, as Azshara had named them in ages past, would eventually set shore upon the eastern land men would call Lordaeron. They planned to build their own magical kingdom, Quel'Thalas, and reject the night elves' precepts of moon worship and nocturnal activity. Forever after, they would embrace the sun and be known only as the high elves. "A page from history.Of course, no idea comes without doubts, and doubts had assuredly arisen within Dath'Remar's group. Soon, these Night Elves began to band together, and voice their concerns amongst each other. Soon betrayal was spoken of; the idea of abandoning Dath'Remar to return to Ashenvale in hopes of forgiveness.As soon as the thought arose, Dath'Remar squelched the uprising, forcing them to leave. The motion was gladly accepted by the group, whom had begun to worry about the madness that seemed to be slowly engulfing the leader. Returning to Ashenvale, the Night Elves plead forgiveness, but were harshly turned away. With no land to return to, and no heading to set, the group, now led by Naedin Moonglow, shoved off towards the Maelstrom, in hopes of following the path that their brothers had traveled. By the grace of Elune, the group was not destroyed, but put off course rather, landing near what is today known as Westfall.Finding no purpose in life, the clan became sullen, spiraling into a depression. Many of the group wandered into the wild, in hopes of recreating the society they once called home. Some, simply disappeared. Those most loyal to Naedin, stayed awaiting his command. One night, several months after the landing, a plan arose. The group would atone for their sins, through fighting the Burning Legion where ever it arose. This newformed clan became known as "The Dath'Reman Exiles", traveling Lordaeron, at first, then Kalimdor as demonslayers, and adventurers alike. They attracted followers, and created friendships in those who saw the Burning Legion as a threat to the world, and struck fear in the hearts of those who revelled in it.Over the years, many of the original clan passed on to the next life, and the clan was summoned to (what is today known as) Darnassus to speak with the druids. "The Dath'Reman Exiles" sons and daughters were pardoned rather quickly, finding no sin in the decendant's lives. The children of the original exiles denied the invitation, unanimously agreeing to continue their work to complete what their forefathers' could not. The Dath'Reman Exiles continued their irradication of the Burning Legion, finally becoming what they are today: Rarely spoken of, rarely seen, demonslayers. Though not all of the members of this guild are not direct descendants of the original exiles, all are likeminded in one goal: To destroy all that claim themselves The Burning Legion, wherever it may show itself.You've been invited, so now you must make a choice. Will you venture within the fold of the Dath'Reman Exiles?
