This is a silly article

This article is silly. Coming from a source other than the computer games, trading card game, novels, RPG, or manga, its content is not part of official Warcraft lore, but nevertheless has become part of the culture belonging to the World of Warcraft community.

Lionshire is the name of the unofficial "First Player-Owned WoW Town" originally envisioned by the human mage Andalite in the popular MMORPG "World of Warcraft." Its fame began when Andalite posted a thread called Lionshire -- The First Player-Owned WoW Town in the Kul Tiras forums of the Blizzard website March 19 2007. Noted for the heavy role playing elements involved, and for being somewhat misguided on a non-role playing realm, Lionshire took off to spawn a lore all its own.

11-28-2007: Since Andalite deleted his original posts, they have been recreated as faithfully as possible from backups at Lionshire Backup.

FOR LIONSHIRE! Edit

Lionshire was intended to be a player run community with members in both the Alliance and Horde. The location of Lionshire is referenced at the very end of the original post:

"Chapter 10. Areas

We are located in the Stonefield farm and the Maclure Vineyards, near Westbrook Garrison. This place is in the South of Elywnn. Please refrain using PvP when entering Alliance territory as that can and will cause difficulties and uneasiness."

The Merchant Corner was intended to be a replacement for the neutral and factional Auction House's. Merchants would hawk their wares to passersby in an attempt to earn an income.
