I don't read most the posts in this forum. Actually the only 3 subforums I ever click are Lore and WoW and General.

I would really like to see J. Gregory Keyes maybe Jeanne Cavelos write for blizzard. If your still looking for author suggestions.

Hey, quick early morning question: Where did we actually get the figure that the Draenei's exile from Argus happened 25,000 years ago?

Off the top of my head I think its Rise of the Horde, but I'm not entirely sure. About 75% sure.

I just checked and the words "twenty five thousand" or "25,000" don't appear in the text.

You try searching with the hyphen in "twenty-five"? I don't have my copy on me.


EDIT: And would it be 25,000 from the rise of the Horde, or 25,000 from the Portal?

I was thinking Rise of the Horde... but I have a copy here, and after a quick glace, I don't see that figure mentioned... just that they had been on Draenor for about 200 years before the war with the orcs.

Acrobat's search is smart enough to pick up a hyphen, and it would be 25,000 from the opening of the dark portal/first war, if there is indeed a figure.

It was mentioned in "The Burning Crusade" townhall, in the Draenei race text:

Quote:
"Nearly twenty-five thousand years ago, the eredar race arose on the world of Argus. They were extremely intelligent and had a natural affinity for magic in all its myriad forms. Using their gifts, they developed a vast and wondrous society."

You have our historians' thanks. I had a sneaking suspicion it came from the old site but wasn't entirely sure.

You're welcome.

I think it would be cool if they managed to repost the old site info. It has so many interesting things (like the Blood Knights origin and other things).

Well maybe we can work it into an initiative of ours.

Perhaps get at the root of the Horde's on again off again fling with demonic magic.

This relationship isn't healthy for either of them.

Obviously Garrosh just wants to be green since none of the brown orc wimminz want to go out with him since hes brown and they want the green orcs! The end raid obviously is going to be hooking Garrosh up with Aggra's sister.

So, in terms of lore, how does Bolvar's sister compare to Rend and Maim's sister?




EDIT:
Little known fact: If a minion failed Rend Blackhand, Rend would tell the minion: "I like you. You can date my sister."

. . .

"In hell."

Then he'd kill him. Maim thought it was awfully funny.

We don't know her exact relation to Bolvar, true, but she could be an older sister.

Well.... they will eventually have to explore his family, no? You can't become the Lich King and don't have some big time on some novels and other IP products afterwards. And for that you need good backstory beyond two paragraphs.

Un saludo.

You'd be surprised. We still know jack diddly about, say, Tyrande's family, and I'd say she's had plenty of big novels about her.
