Medivh is a Romantic character par excellence, related to (but not restricted to) Maturin's/Byron's prototype, and certainly with a Gnostic streak. If there is a real revolutionary idealist in this...

I didn't mention Empire Strikes Back specifically, but the Empire from Star Wars movies in general; not taking the old and new EU into the account.

Anyway, yes, it works, too; but I think this...

Best "moral ambiguity" comes from actual clashes of ideals and interestes, but those are very hard to write well, especially when it comes to organizations and cultures, especially for someone whose...

Shalom.



Indeed.
I have been considering to label all of the latest Warcraft developments as "Titan Saga" or something in that vein. This was, retrospectively, their story.

No doubt displaced by Gorian magis away from Draenor.
And that is what the ogres were looking for in the west -- at least before Cho'Gall and company became distracted by the Old Gods. ;)

Prefer this treatment of Lightforged (if this concept has to be present at all) more than what we have; at least the direction it takes (less windchimes, more titans).

Same with the Lich King -- not necessarily as a particular person (we'd enter muddy waters here anyway), but as a concept and a position, thus a presence in the world.

At least for now. Have her...

That, and schizophrenic pendulum of "we have to work together", adorned with popculture references, covered in layers of "creative borrowing" and cheap melodrama.

At this point I think it's safe to say that a new game powered by a new engine (that could support any relevant and appropriate feature they may want to implement) would've been better.

Intelligence to construct the spell's framework, willpower to let the energies through it; and hopefully not catapult a caster's brains out instead.

I think the right word to ostensively describe Arthas' condition would be that he was "bound": to the blade, through the blade to Ner'zhul's consciousness, and thus to the Scourge as a whole.

Maybe it was ~40 years for his physical age, and the reasons could be many, from elements of temporal subjectivity to being constantly exposed to TN's volatile energies.
