The Thunderfist Warband was a warband of united Horde races bent on preventing their home of Kalimdor from falling to their enemies, whether it was the Alliance or some primitive foe of old.
It was once led by Garthak Thunderfist, the warband's namesake, and later Aknug Stormrider until protege Mograh Ragefury defeated Aknug in honorable mak'gora. Ragefury led the warband until its eventual disbanding.
Thunderfist CampEditThunderfist Camp was the main base of operations of the warband. It rested in the mountains to the northeastern corner of the Barrens, close to the harpy nests, and on the border between both Ashenvale and Stonetalon. The camp was divided in two main bodies, the one nearest to the gate more unprotected and filled with more utilitarian buildings, while the more vital buildings were enclosed by a metal fence on the second part of the camp. There was also a small mesa overlooking the rest of the camp. The path there is still treacherous to this day, but it was easily defensible for the group. At the very border of Ashenvale is a small lake that provided water to the troops.
The camp at its foundation contained several huts, the wolf stables, a pig pen, a broken down blacksmith, several outlooks, war machines and an arena. Later on, further additions were constructed: an inn, an infirmary with an herb garden, the commander's room, a wooden enclosure for the teaching of mixed magics, a raptor pen, three wyverns, and the blacksmith had been repaired. Several huts were also built for shelter.
A small, floating shamanistic shrine had been added to the lake, connected to the small docks at the lake by a series of buoys. This zone was the most sacred area of the entire camp, only reachable by swimming or walking over water. It was here that the warband's members could come to meditate, and also served as a place for funerary ceremonies to be held. To its side were several closed chests containing the ashes of slain members of the warband, as well as any items they held close to them such as weapons, armor, and other valuables. Whenever a member of the warband passed away, a new chest was added as a memorial, which allowed the remaining warriors and loved ones to honor their memory.
