Velen actually appears on the cover. Hoping for draenei lore

EDIT: he's on Varian's left, so obviously he appears as the High King's sidekick!.

Lol. I didn't know what dechados means...

Great news, though.

My guess is that most the short stories are the stories we already got such as the leader short stories. So mostly it's a 'hey buy this book and you get this extra thing you wanted'.

Neither did I. I had to search for the word on a dictionary.

I think that was what Micky Neilson said earlier. BotH was going to be published along with the leader stories.

I have to give credit Blizzard credit for making me want to buy something with the Baine story in it...

When NYComic-Con takes place? August? Maybe they'll officially announce the book there.

Thank you.

That didn't come out the way I wanted it to. Let me rephrase:

THANK YOU.

This looks like it'll just be a reprint of the faction short stories from the official site. Look at the authors.

It is. We also get Blood of the Highborne, which is great if you want Blood Elf lore (it might also go into the initial alliance between Quel'thalas and Arathor). To whoever it was who was hoping for Draenei lore, a little might be in the Blood of the Highborne story (a bit about Kael'thas, the Blood Knights, Naaru, etc), but beyond that all we get is Velen's leader short story.

Quote:
For writing short stories and when you're writing prose, you can go into a lot more detail. You can afford to take a bit more time -- I quite often do. I did -- there's a story that's going to be coming out soon called Blood of the Highborne.

What's that about?

It's gonna be really really cool. It goes into the attack on Silvermoon and it goes into the origin of the blood knights, and it goes back into some deeper history with the elves and the trolls and everything else. It started off the same way Unbroken started off -- as just a way to use a short story to explain. Like for Unbroken, it was explaining the draenei shaman.

For this, it was a way to explain the blood knights, but it turned into a novella, because I just spent so much time on it and there was so much that I wanted to say! It was originally supposed to be another short story for the website, but it's going to be published in print form because it turned into a novella. It's going to be part of a bindup that we're doing along with the leader short stories.

Let's tally the content:

Troll Wars stuff (probably exposition or history)
The Scourge invasion
Rommath's return
Kael'thas vs M'uru (possibly)
Dar'Khan Drathir doing something (Micky did say he'd be a main character, so I assume he'll be an antagonist of sorts in the actual plot)
Lor'themar's very early regency, before Silvermoon was reclaimed (post-manga though, so maybe Anveena will be around)
Liadrin and the Blood Knights' founding
New character named Galell whose chances of survival I don't have high hopes for

Anything else relevant to this context and general time period?

Maybe the exile of Renthar Hawkspear and all the non mana-sucking sin'dorei?

Also, Fojar. I don't remember when or where, but Micky already said that they planned to publish all the online stories + Blood of the Highborne.

They did the same with Diablo's compilation "Heroes Rise, Darkness Falls" : 5 class stories + new story (by Kosak, and awesome) + last Blizzard Writing winner (modified by Cowboy Bourbon).

So... Does that imply Kael is "the paragon" of elven people?

Also, I sure hope we don't get the same disappointment there was with Stromgarde scenario.

They did something similar with the Diablo 3 class short stories, but put them in with 2 new stories. That one didn't have as many stories in it as this though, so I'd expect the BotH to be the only new one.
