"The Light's Bastion of Azeroth"
Round-Robin Chairman; weekly
"It is by the Light's will, we are the blessed, let us not forsake this by wasting the blessing to convene at Courts and conduct legislation. Allow us to be the bastion, to protect and serve the fair people of our beloved world. We are the Light's Accord, and we shall serve to the bitter end."
The Light's Accord is a coalition of men and women of faith whom seek to find justice across the globe of Azeroth and beyond. Comprised of varying orders of differing backgrounds, the Light's Accord convenes to discuss and address matters from each regional organization.
(This page is a new project, and a long term work in progress!)
The Light's Accord was founded in the month of October of the year 35 L.C. under the organization and establishment by the leaders and members of The Citrine Eagle, the Silver Hand Chapter of Quel'Thalas, among various other establishing parties, and supporters such as the Four Winds Trade Company (whose prices are incomparable, by the way). The Accord was founded to the sake of establishing a new autonomous group after the mysterious exodus of orders from The Court of Uther.
The Accord acts as a means to moderate, support, and co-mingle with other, predominantly religious orders of Azeroth.
