Bael Modan

Bael Modan is the largest Alliance stronghold in the Barrens. It is marked by the sturdy stone walls and guard towers blocking the mouth of a cavern into the mountain. An encampment just inside the wall offers shelter to Alliance caravans and travelers crossing the Barrens. The stores of food and supplies at Bael Modan are a tempting target to centaur warbands and quilboar raiders, but thus far the dwarves' trusty rifles and mortars have proven more than able to withstand such attacks.

Behind a second wall is the largest dwarven archaeological dig in all of Kalimdor, digging around the clock to uncover the most significant set of titan ruins discovered since Uldaman on the continent of the Eastern Kingdoms.

Bael Modan digsite and the nearby mighty Bael'dun Keep are led by General Twinbraid, Heggin Stonewhisker, Prospector Khazgorm, Malgin Barleybrew, Captain Gerogg Hammertoe, and Lord Cyrik Blackforge.

A number of dwarves from Bael Modan traveled west, to Mulgore and set up another digsite there.

Bael Modan possess several flying machines. One of the most skilled pilots in all Azeroth, Lord Cyrik Blackforge, is in charge of one of them. Gann Stonespire later requests brave Horde adventurers to destroy it with explosives.


Bael Modan was once next to a tauren village, but in conflicts between the dwarves and tauren (caused by the dwarves excavating for Titan artifacts in land the local tauren considers holy) most of the tauren were killed or driven off of their ancestral lands. Their old village is now torn apart by dwarven digging machines. Gann Stonespire, a tauren who frequently wanders the roads nearby, tried to reach a diplomatic resolution, but failed; he now seeks revenge by sending Horde adventurers to fight the dwarves.
