Tyr's Hand Welcomes You
A Home on Wyrmrest Accord
Past the Thandol Span Bridge, across the wheat plains of the Arathi Highlands, and the roaring pines of the Hillsbrad Foothills, and enclosed in the thickets of Darromwere forest lies Tyr's Hand - The City of Churches. Since the glory days in which the Kingdom of Lordaeron and its Alliance prospered, Tyr's Hand was renowned as a Holy City, and a place of pilgrimage. With a city size and population comparable to Stratholme, Hearthglen, and Capital City; peasant and lord alike entered the city to seek spirit and fortune. During the days of the Third War, Tyr's Hand became home to the Resistance of men and women who followed in the footsteps of Alexandros Mograine. Afterward, the City became one of the strongholds of the Scarlet Crusade - but that is all a thing of the past! The Brotherhood of the Light has reclaimed Tyr's Hand, and now: It shall prosper as it did in the days of old. Come one, come all! And join the city we seek to restore through our plethora of guilds and ideas that provide a safe and wonderful community, that can only be found: OnWyrmrest Accord.
- Disclaimer: We do not claim the City belongs to any guild or player faction. We fully agknowledge that the City belongs to the Brotherhood of the Light and will only act in the boundries set by the lore.
