I came up with this interesting race called Worgen. Took me a while to think about but I imagine someday Blizzard will implement them.

One idea I had is that the Worgen would settle a lot more in Felwood, rather than simply only having Talonbranch Glade. I imagine it would be an ideal place for them, since it has some similar themes to them. It's a cursed forest for one thing, it also holds an amount of Worgen lore, and it carries an aesthetic that could accommodate the sort of architectural style I'd like for this race to have. They're also the most natural weapon against the local demonic threats that plague the lands. See, my idea for the Worgen is that they're incredibly adept at fighting demons and undead, tearing them to shreds so easily that it would make other races both wary and jealous of such killer instinct. Another thing that would be cool is if Whisperwind Grove had changed into more of a giant Worgen base with all the gothic architecture and everything. Either that or they could just destroy Bloodvenom Post and rebuild it as a Gilnean base.

Oh yeah, and there should be a base in the Howling Vale, I'll call it "New Worgenistan" or something.

It can have stuff like a gigantic pyramid for Bwonsamdi worship, and shrines to Gonk and whatever other Loa the Darkspear are favorable toward.

Gigantic stone seawalls would be also necessary, to add some verisimilitude to the capital. And a gigantic fleet... also made out of stone.

Orgrimmar goes splat in turn.

Hey! I like you.

Interestingly enough, the main island of the Echo Isles is slightly larger than Theramore Isle was, and the latter was passable as a larger city. The major problem with the Echo Isles is that its area is horrifically managed. Extend the perimeter of the main island with retaining/seawalls, raise Darkspear Hold to be an actual hold/keep/what have you, then make good use of the rest of the island, and it'd be a decent pseudo-capital even without extensive use of the other islands.

That said, having some way to get to Sen'jin Village without having to swim there would be a good idea, so it'd be nice to build a sort of causeway linking the islands to the mainland, and it could even be used to great effect, by housing street vendors/markets, piers, etc., provided it was built widely enough.

I imagine it could look rather impressive as a a fortress city with walls towering over the waves. You know, so the first yahoo who shows up doesn't force 'em off their island, again.

Et fin.

I may have to have some words regarding farmlands and proximity to saltwater though.

Firstly - not me that's done it, just some fellow on my realm. I wish I could do it. I might even give it a try some day soon.

Secondly - Green lantern refers, apparently, to the Lighthouse based in the district. I suspect fanon.

The whole map is fanon.
