To everyone that has been coming in from Google searches or following links from one of the list sites or elsewhere, welcome! CotH is a private WoW server that focuses primarily on roleplay within the Warcraft setting, which is probably what drew you here to begin with. Keep in mind that everyone is expected to RP, and while you have the ability to toggle an FFA-PvP flag, that's only to assist in providing a more 'immersive' experience. Visiting the [[Rules]] of the server will set you off on the right direction, and then browsing the rest of the Wiki will help you learn a lot as well.

Keep in mind that this isn't an 'insta-80' server, per se. Nor do we have oodles of custom items. It used to be both of those in the past, but after much consideration and feedback, we decided to nix the items (they were too much of a timesink for the few GMs we have, and also a bit difficult to balance the world with); leveling to 80 is still done, but only after a certain point. Be sure to read the [[Once_Connected|FAQs]] for more information on that, and other things!

Despite the name of the server, Alliance characters are also welcome. I haven't had Alliance outposts or cities taken over by the Horde or anything. Admittedly, most of what I add by ways of extra NPCs or items to vendors will first be done in Orgrimmar, however I also seek to outfit Stormwind in a generally-similar manner.

In addition, Common & Orcish are set to a universal language. After all, everyone was able to talk to each other before WoW, and the language barrier was added simply due to the MMO setting (ie, preventing gankers from easily cussing each other out).  Furthermore, custom emotes will indeed be seen cross-faction, so don't worry about needing to 'emote in says,' so to speak.

Webster in Ironforge

Webster Springsprockets was born in Gnomeregan, of course. His father was a tinker that worked inside city maintenance and his mother was a tomboyish fighter who served as a guard for the gates and main lift. While his mother was aloof and not seen very often, Webster's father often took him deep inside the secret maintenance tunnels and passageways, giving him lessons on how the air systems, electricity, and even sewage where taken in and out of the underground capital.

As he grew older, his own obsession grew -- and he inherited the job of his father, snaking his ways inside tunnels and pipelines that not many knew about in the first place. His dream was to become the next High Tinker, or at least become part of the council of advisers that helped make the city run.
