Unfortunally there seem to be no larger cities in the Outlands, up to now I just found more or less fortified outposts. So I am happy to find out that my hearthstone does work here and so I can always quickly return into my stable old world, e.g. to visit the auction house. After I paid a visit in Undercity I spontanously decide to follow another trace: what is the background of all those regions which are shown on so many maps: The Ghostlands, the Eversong Woods and the Islands of Quel’Thanas? Do they really exist? If so they should be reachable somehow through the Plaguelands. This is reason enough for me to go there and find out.

And in fact in the very north of the Eastern Plaguelands I find one of these pulsing gates behind which I can guess the silhouette of some landscape. Eager to visit another part of my still growing lordship I pass the gate to find myself within some neglected and grey land. So here is the hidingplace of all those ghosts. So it is no longer surprising why so many of them tend to have depressions and are of bad mood and character. But in the beginning I do meet neither a living nor a ghostly creature.

It seems as if this region has once seen better times. Many huge buildings are a sign of a prosperous but long gone might. These buildings haven’t been visited for a very long time. I find spider webs everywhere around and the dust lays several inches deep on the floor. Who might have been the ones who lived here before? I find a ruin named Zul’Aman and hope to gain some pieces of information there. But the gate denies my access as it considers me not mighty enough yet. So I will come back.
