The Twilight's Hammer Clan was once one of
the most feared and powerful collection of Ogres
and Ogre-magi enlisted by the invading forces
of the Horde. Lead by the Ogre-magi Cho'gall,
this clan claimed that they would be the harbingers
of the apocalypse. There have been more than
one occasion where this was almost true.
Cho'gall was a great mage who had been the chief apprentice of Gul'dan, master
warlock of the Horde under the command of Orgrim Doomhammer. His loyalties and
the loyalty of his clan always fell to Gul'dan rather than the "limited"
goals of the Horde. When Gul'dan chose to lead his own clan over the vast sea
to the island that held the Tomb of Sargeras, Cho'gall proudly had his clan
And so the clan of warlocks and mages fought to the death at the very doorway
to the Tomb of Sargeras, holding off the forces loyal to Doomhammer. Cho'gall
himself was slain in the doorway to the tomb while trying to buy Gul'dan more
time to locate the skull of Sargeras. What few Twilights that survived fled
the isle and headed west to the lands of Kalimdor.
As the remnants of the Twilights began to rebuild
in Kalimdor, they sought out other evils that
could meet their goals. Old gods and evil elementals
were easy to contact in this ancient land, and
they struggled to find the greatest of these
evils to aid them in the apocalypse. With so
few numbers, their clan dissolved and from the
ashes came a doomsday cult that the people of
the world at large have come to know and fear.
The Twilight Cultists have spread their influence
across Kalimdor, incorporating members from
all races, regardless of Horde, Alliance, or
other affiliations. They have even enlisted
the fallen elves of the Naga, Satyrs, and Blood
Elves. While most of their plans remain in secret,
masked by cryptic codes and hidden messages,
their plans have not changed. They still desire
the coming of the apocalypse. But now, rather
than the simple motivations of a demon blood
fueled Ogre clan, this has become the fanatical
drive of a religion.
Twilight Cultists are found in varying strength across Kalimdor in places of
great power and evil. Darkshore has become infested with these Twilights around
the burial site of a titan. The Blackfathom Depths have become host to a slew
of Twilights trying to empower an ancient water lord of the Abyssal Council.
Emissaries of the Cult have been dispatched to Blackrock Depths to investigate
the power and prestige of Ragnaros and his kin.
