In the all-troll guild I used to be in, we decided to take the vague lore about the Darkspears’ exile from Stranglethorn Vale (STV) to mean that it had happened unknown generations before. In other words, no living Darkspear would have been born in STV. I think that Vol’jin: The Judgment implicitly verified this by talking about First Home, which was where the Darkspears lived when they first came to their island of exile. Enough time had passed since they moved out of First Home that it had become overgrown and overrun with spirits and beasts.Vol’jin’s story did also mention the tales recounting the time when they were in STV, being hunted by the other troll tribes, so perhaps it wasn’t that long ago, or maybe they simply have a strong oral tradition that retains those memories from long ago. It is still vague. Personally, I prefer believing that no living adult Darkspears were born anywhere but their island. I think some roleplayers like to say STV was their troll’s birthplace because they can go there in game, but we can’t go to the island where Thrall found them. Yet, as I’ve said here before, where a character was born is not as important as where he/she grew up or came of age.
