By my count, that was the 82nd update I myself wrote featuring my dear Xalmor Windrunner, not to count the myriad of other updates I mentioned him in or the updates of others. What a long journey it was.

So what happens to Jallan?

Thinking of doing an writeup for this..which would forever disconnect our canon from the Warcraft timeline.

There, I invalidated the Warcraft Canon in the RP.

What did everyone think?

Removed that bit because I can't say decisively, for fairness' sake, whether the timeline leads into WoW or not - however, I leave that possibility open, and our imaginations able to fill in the gaps.

I also edited the Jallan bit to that effect.

Wonderful Xalmor finale, HalfElf, it met my expectations and hopes well indeed. Very good characterization there, glad you chose Kraus. Similar words of praise to Ashen, and the utilization of various Benefactors and their conditions to paint the return of the King.

Now the clash of armies can finally begin! Question is, does it take place the same time as Xythi'mort? I hope it actually does.

As for the ending, I actually wrote some parts to bring my own closure to the Garrosh arc--we see that his misportrayal is only one of many realities, in some realities, Varian actually turns evil and Garrosh does not. In some cases they both turn evil and MOP ends with Garrosh and Varian BOTH dying after succumbing to the Sha---Thrall leads the Horde rebels in attacking Orgrimmar and Jaina leads the alliance rebels against Stormwind. However there are also realities where they both become better people too!

Also Varian's title in realities where he turns evil is Varian Wyrnn: God-King of the Empire of Man, Garrosh title is the same.

To be sincere I still can't believe we are so close to the end of the great war.

Its hard for me to believe we are finally here.

It does seem rather surreal, doesn't it?

My first update was in late January 2010. And I was already twenty pages late to the party. It has been a long-ass time for us all.

Anyways does the clash of armies take place the same time as the Xythi'mort fight? I hope it actually does.

Would actually be a good narrative technique IMO.

It's complicated because of the passage of time issue in the Temple of Ula-Tek. The way I envisaged it is, and was planning on making clear, is that the evil darkness which must not be named to keep things serious is defeated shortly before Zula's latest update.

My first post was May 29, 2009. 257 entries, so says the search tool. I've got about one update left to write. Surreal indeed.

I am going to Gozo today and will overnight there, and there's not really Internet there. Since I can't leave offline messages in Skype like I used to with MSN because Skype is shit:

@Kerrah: Update as we discussed, taking into account Zula's latest update, and end your update at the same time his ends timelinewise.

@Zula: Jin'thek's mortal avatar has arrived with the red communication stone from Quel'Danas because Xythi'mort has been defeated. When Kerrah updates you are free to write the battle scene we discussed between him and his polar opposite. When I get back on Sunday I will write about the Orb and what happens with the other hilltop.

I wanted to update before you two but I can't because of this no-Internet zone today and I am hoping to finish Valen's Cut on Monday, because the job I mentioned starts on Tuesday and I'll be in London. I should still have time to write the coming weekend, but I don't know where I'll be!

Someone please tell Kerrah about this post just in case he doesn't see it.

To elaborate:

As you can tell from my last update... I broke the timeline. I expected it as much as any of you did, I was just writing and I knew I had to do it. However, I did make a vow I intend to keep, that Great War will end in a way everyone will like it to. Funnily enough, what xie did originally will hold true in the sense that there will be an alternate timeline... but the timeline splits around the time of the defeat of the Seer God, the Fifth God. What this means is the epilogue will be the same for everyone for the next 100 years, but there'll be a branching point where I will show how things lead up to WoW, and another branch where things do not lead up to it. Best of both worlds Is everyone happy with this?

I'll be honest, I'm not a fan of the idea (breaking the timeline) at all... but the thing you proposed... that's a good way to do it.

I really need to work on not skimming through paragraphs.

What HED said. Second part, about paragraphs. I - as one might imagine - am quite happy otherwise...

I said I wanted everyone to be happy when Great War ended, and I meant it. I'm really sorry to those who may have envisaged things taking a different turn so far. Sometimes, when I try to please one person, it is automatic I'll upset another.

I mean it when I say I am sorry. You've all put in four years of your lives into this. I want you to all be there with me, contented, at the end, and proud of what we've achieved. If I was to split the timeline, maybe it shouldn't have happened just yet, but rather have been saved for the epilogue, to showcase two possible historical weaves, and make everyone happy that way. It was my original intention.

I'm thinking about what to do now. Feedback is very much desired.

Communication problems are always at the heart of every issue between friends.

EDIT:

Quote:
That there was no denying them. But it was in that moment that Anasterian Sunstrider came awake from his nightmares, from his coma, and clutched his chest in terror and understanding, understanding at last the Fon'kaz'kah.
Changed it to this to keep the official split post-Great War, but as to who wins Valen's Cut, that has nothing to do with the timeline, and I don't personally know how that battle will end yet.

I'm pretty much of one mind with HalfElf here.
