(About road to Supremacy);
*In Lordaeron an ancient gathering of Nobles, the very elitistic society of The Iron Ring begins dealing with certain groups of Sin'dorei, exchanging words and rumours of certain artifacts rumoured to hold vast amounts of power.
*In Quel'Thalas, the fanatical cult of Akeiri'Vermilion are sending out grunts and interceptors to the distant lands of Kalimdor to steal samples of blessed Moonwell waters, to be brought back to Quel'thalas for unknown reasons.
*In Kalimdor, tensions between the Temple of Elune and the Cenarion Enclave are becoming more appearant, as powerful Druids leave the city in an uproar for unknown reasons. Authorical people deny any affiliation with the rebelling druids.
*The Forsaken, stirred by unknown hands launches massive attacks on several Kaldorei outposts, finally being repelled at the foot of Teldrassil.
*In Quel'thalas, shadowy creatures are stalking the streets, abducting the citiszens of Silvermoon in the night. The Royal Council is forced into action.
*The Forsaken-Sin'dorei outpost of Tranquilien comes under attack from Alliance mercenaries, led by a certain Night elf Druidess. Any attempt to establish a connection between said Druidess and those Druids who rebelled in Darnassus weeks prior have so far failed.
*The Forsaken-Sin'dorei alliance gathers intel that commanders from the assault are residing with the Wildhammer Dwarves, and decides to launch a counter attack at Aerie Peak.
*The Forsaken-Sin'dorei alliance are summoned from the Hinterlands to travel across the sea to Kalimdor, as the Kaldorei attacks on Warsong Encampments have grown increasingly more severe. A strange new sorcery is rumoured to have blossomed across several Kaldorei Druids, but the Cenarion Circle denies any involvement in the creation of theese dark druids, known only as "Shadow wings"
*The Forsaken-Sin'dorei alliance recruit Defense-Warlord Armos Taisha'ishte to command the defense of the Warsong Outpost.
*Dark and previously unknown sorcery overwhelmes the Horde defenses, and the Forsaken-Sin'dorei alliance suffers severe casualities in the ongoing battle. Several "Shadow Wing" druids are reported to have been present, yet no evidence seems to support this theory.
*Certain Dalarani maguses under the command of "The Violet Vanguard" are reported to have broken their Ambassador statuses and openly sided with the Alliance in the offense of Warsong. Several Forsaken and Sin'dorei who were previous citizens of Dalaran are provoked into action.
*The Horde is defeated at the Defense of Warsong. The Forsaken-Sin'dorei alliance is shattered and retreats back to Durotar. Several acres of land is lost the Silverwing Sentinels in Ashenvale.
*The dread Warlock Lord Santern Deface unmasks his "Den Of the Haemonculi", sending Quel'thalas into a state of chaos. The Royal Council tries to weed out the members of the Den, the so called "Mandrakes" with limited success.
*Kael'thas Sunstrider returns to herald his people in Quel'thalas. The victory is shortlived, for Kael'thas Sunstrider reveals his true colors, sending the land of Quel'Thalas into civil war.
*The Royal Council of Silvermoon is dissolved, later re-forming itself as "The Convocation". The Shattered Sun Offensive launches it's campaign at the Island of Quel'Danas.
*The Shattered Sun is making progress. Sin'dorei Magi have established that there were, infact, Dalarani mages siding with the alliance in the defense of Warsong. Retribution is unevitable.
*The Den of the Haemonculi is destroyed, it's leaders have vanished and rumours say they are either dead or no longer of this world.
*Stirred and manipulated by unseen hands within The Iron Ring, High Warlord Antus Draconus and Magistrix Poesi Verdande sign a treaty to revive the Forsaken-Sin'dorei alliance, accepting all members of the Horde as equals.
*The Forsaken-Sin'dorei alliance is revived as "The Crimson Storm", and begin to gather allies for the retribution on alliance Dalarani maguses, said to have their stronghold in the Magus stronghold of Nethergarde Keep, in the Blasted Lands.
*The Battle of Nethergarde. The Horde charge headlong into the Alliance, but the defences are too strong. High Warlord Antus Draconus is captured, and faces of against the leader of the Alliance forces, the Draenei Kimbalin. The Forsaken is victorious, and after showing a level of honour and respect towards the Alliance, manages to sway a minor victory.
*After the battle of Nethergarde, negotiations with the Kirin Tor allow the Horde a presence within the City and council. Having secured the position for the Horde, the Crimson Storm disbands. The Wrath of the Lich King becomes apparent soon after, and attacks against capital cities on both sides provoke a joint attack against the Lich King himself.
*Forces successfully land in Northrend, and begin battle against the harsh climate and creatures found there. The Royal Apothecary Society shows a peculiar interest on testing their plague through-out Northrend.
*The Wrathgate incident and the Battle for Undercity. In the chaos and confusion, the Alliance mistake the Traitor Apothecaries as members of the Horde. War is declared.
*Captain Serian blackwater initiates a meeting with the previous Commanders of the Crimson Storm, attempting to reform the alliance in order to start an attack on the Alliance. The other members disagree to the war-mongering, and Captain Blackwater is left to her own devices.

What is the Crimson Storm?
The Crimson Storm is a revived alliance between the Forsaken and the Sin'dorei forces that re-took Silvermoon from the Scourge and has been re-taking Quel'thalas from Dar'khan's control steadely ever since. Their enemies lie partially in Alliance aligned humans from Stormwind aswell as the Kaldorei, both of which would gladly see the downfall of the Forsaken and the Sin'dorei.
The main enemies of the Crimson Storm are the Scourge - With some Sin'dorei harnessing special hatered towards the San'layn, and some (most) of the Forsaken harbouring great hatered towards Arthas Menethil.
The Crimson Storm has their main headquarters - not in Silvermoon, but in Tranquilien and in Lordaeron. When Tranquilien was attacked by the Kaldorei during an earlier Road To Supremacy RP-PvP campaign during the Dorei Wars (War of the Children), the Tauren Warlord Armos Taisha'ishte answered the Forsaken and the Sin'dorei's plea for help and so brought a legion of Horde volunteers to Quel'thalas to defend the base.
Since that day, the Forsaken and the Sin'dorei forces stationed at Tranquilien has followed the Horde into a great deal of battles, including the invasion of Aerie Peak and the Battle for Warsong.
At the Defense of Warsong Gulch, however, the Horde suffered tremendous defeat - Partially due to the interference of Dalarani maguses. This defeat shattered the alliance between the Forsaken and the Sin'dorei and made both races withdraw from the Horde offensive to tend to their own lands.
NOTE: This does not mean the Sin'dorei and Forsaken race as a whole. It would be ludicrous for anyone to claim that they speak for an entire race - The above statement refers only to the Forsaken and Sin'dorei roleplayers who roleplayed as part of this offensive force.
Months later, the secretive and dangerous order of the Iron Ring set into motion a political underground campaign to ressurect the alliance between the Forsaken and the Sin'dorei. The Preceptor Lord, Archbishop Abraham Tremayne and the Kul'tiras noble, Lord Shavrash Aramain were the primary puppeteers pulling the strings within the Royal Council of Silvermoon (also known as the Convocation) and saught out powerful and influential Sin'dorei and Forsaken with enough power and personality to spark the alliance back into life. The Iron Ring found their puppets in Warlord Antus Draconus and Magistrix Poesi Verdande and made sure that fate would them meet.
The Iron Ring played on the Forsaken and the Sin'dorei's thirst for vengeance to fuel their enthusiasm, and so the Forsaken-Sin'dorei alliance was reborn - under the name of the Crimson Storm. The official banner for the Crimson Storm was a red L - The mark of Lordaeron, adorned with bloodied swords and graced by Phoenix Wings on a black tabard.
The true motive of the Iron Ring's manipulation of events can be discussed greatly, for the order is secretive. Those few who are aware of the fact that they are being manipulated, however, assume that it has to do with things greater then the conflict of a single Kalimdor outpost - Indeed, most eyes turn to Dalaran.
The interferenace of neutral Dalarani ambassadors at the Defense of Warsong was seen as an insult to many Forsaken and Sin'dorei of which many were former citizens of Dalaran. A campaign was launched towards Nethergarde Keep in the Blasted Lands to punish the Alliance aligned Dalarani and force the Violet Citadel to acknowledge the Sin'dorei and the Forsaken as equal citizens within the city.
The Crimson Storm demanded that atleast one Forsaken or Sin'dorei magus be accepted into the Six as a ruling member of the city.
Although the battle of Nethergarde led to crushing defeat to the Crimson Storm - their goals had been accomplished. The Arch Mage, Aethas Sunreaver - Who had no affiliation with the Crimson Storm what so ever, rose to become a member of the six - and many Sin'dorei and Forsaken citizens began their exodus to Northrend - to return home to the Violet City.
However, the Crimson Storm still stirs... What is the Lion Shield?
During the initialization of the offense at Nethergarde, the Crimson Storm executors demanded that the alliance stop sheltering traitors and those who defected from Dalaran's side to aid in the attack on Warsong Hold. The Crimson Storm demanded that the traitors be handed over to their custody, and Nethergarde would be spared. One Dawn Lord Heinz Guderian, however, refused to sacrifice human, gnomish and indeed Draenai lives in order to stop what was perceived as a Horde agression on Stormwind lands.
The Dawn Lord called out to the people of the alliance and held a great council of war. For details of what happened within this council, you will have to ask the Lion Shield members themselves (as they organized it themselves, and I shall in no way take credit on their behalf).
It was, however, deemed that Nethergarde was far to important a strategic location to simply give it up to the Horde. The Lion Shield was born to defend Nethergarde from the Crimson Storm, and whilst it did indeed recruit soldiers and mages from Ashenvale, Dun Morough and Arathi - Most of the members of the Lion Shield were Stormwind Humans, Lordaeron Survivors, Humans, elves and gnomes from Dalaran and mages from the Exxodar who had come to sympathize with all who suffered attacks from what they perceived to be malicious Sin'dorei. The leaders for theese Draenai - aswell as being personal ambassadors from their people to the Violet city itself, were none other then Mistress of Arms Kimbalin Raschan and Grand Arcanist Perlin of the Ebon Flame.
The Lion Shield stood victorious at the battle of Nethergarde, forcing most of the Crimson Storm forces to retreat north. The Lion Shield forces were a defensive act, and despite the protests of many men and women - neither Dawn Lord Guderian - nor the Mistress of Arms Raschan, allowed the Lion Shield forces to pursuit the Crimson Storm nor to attack the Horde outpost of Stonard.
Upon the fields of the Blasted Lands the supreme commanders of the Lion Shield and the Crimson Storm - Mistress of Arms Kimbalin Raschan and Warlord Antus Draconus challenged eachother to a duel of epic feats to settle a personal vendetta. Both sides demanded that non interfere.
Meanwhile, Arcanist Perlin and Magistrix Verdande unleashed terrible and powerful spells onto eachother, a testament to the destruction and power that surges from the Sin'dorei Blood Mages against the controlled and millenia-perfectioned wisdom unleashed by the Draenai Arcanists.
At the end of the day, Arcanist Perlin bested the Magistrix Verdande with arcane superiority, making the phoenix flames backfire and sending the Magistrix into retreat. At the same time, the Warlord Draconus brought the Mistress of Arms Raschan to her knee's. As per their personal agreement, the Warlord Draconus was allowed safe passage for the retreating forces back into the Swamp of Sorrows, with a promise between the two commanders that they would one day meet upon the field of battle once more.
The Blood Knight and the Forsaken offensive commanders, Serian Blackwater and Elturion Sunfighter led the exodus from the Blasted Lands back to Lordaeron, with the Iron Ring quickly extracting their most prominent members from the site of battle. The Lion Shield has thus intended to make their presence known in Northrend.
Is there a (Insert Race/Class Here) equivalent?
There might be - But they have in that case not made themselves known for a great deal of time.
We hope to see more factions rise up within the RtS as we dwell into Northrend.
