And Tyrande should turn out fine. But again, is this WC3 fine or ALP fine?
On one hand, I want to say "It's Golden" so possibly WC3 fine.

But then, the writing drafts do get pruned by Blizzard staffies if I recall from the short story interview, so if they decide she needs to hush and be ALP fine... well.

The thing about words is that meanings can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.

No one ever said elves are nice.
Elves are bad.

Just don't let Ijff see this, mmm'kay?

Also, well, he's a part of the Pandaria storyline is he not? He's been involved with the faction conflict, so even if not one of the big figures in the trial, I doubt he'd just be ignored.

So does this dispel the notion that war crimes don't exist in WoW's setting?

Sylvanas attending a war crimes trial alongside the Alliance as part of the prosecution.



Anyway, mixed feelings. On one hand, if it tries to dump all of the blame on Garrosh alone it'll be crap, but if it just uses all this 2darkangst to setup another faction war sometime soon that'll be crap. Also, Jaina's love interests are always crap, please stop trying to make them happen.

Blizzard effectively wants to have its cake and eat it too by pretending to have this groundbreaking war in a faction capital while at the same time being completely unwilling to portray logical consequences of such an event.

Faction war can be done well, but Blizzard has half assed it and it has predictably flopped as a result.

Someone may have mentioned this, but this would hardly be the first book that covered things also covered in game.

I wonder how much Taran Zhu knows about the history the Alliance/Horde conflict since it's been alluded to before.

Nothing if all of MoP was anything to go by.

Somehow I doubt he'll suddenly be enlightened either.

I think this might be the first time in Azeroth's history that war crimes will be... created. War crimes as real universal war crimes (not crimes among some races).

I'm looking for the first chapter. Golden said it would set up the scenario and all the laws and specific terms for the procedure. I'm thinking that Pandaria's law is going to become the standard internationl criminal law from here and on.

They are always on the defense when it comes to the Horde.
