It would make for an amazing animated series. Focus on a 'non' conventional and known character looks to be pretty fun.

Also dat art.

Honestly looking forward to this.

A series of books instead of a stand alone is something we haven't had since the ToD->BtDP novelizations, and it'll also be nice to get more "down to earth" stories instead of ones featuring the main characters. Kind of like what Legends did but not an anthology.

Greg Weisman is a great writer too.

This was one of the last things I was told about during my internship, it was in its infancy. At the time I was of two minds of it, but now that I think about it and know more about it I am very intrigued.

If there was only one thing that bugged me it's that this kid is human; isn't exploring the dwarves' hat?

It's been years since twelve-year-old Aramar Thorne, a clever boy who is never without his precious sketch book, has seen his father. So when Captain Greydon Thorne comes ashore and asks his son to join him at sea, it feels as if someone has redrawn Aram's entire world. Before he knows it, Aram is aboard the Wavestrider with Lakeshire fading to a distant dot on the horizon. But the thrill of adventure quickly fades, as Greydon relentlessly schools Aram on how to handle his cutlass and how to relate with the strange and diverse creatures of Azeroth. In addition, Aram struggles to get along with the Wavestrider's crew?especially second mate Makasa, a tough teenaged girl who has been reluctantly placed in charge of him. Just as Aram starts to get his head above water, a band of vicious pirates attack the Wavestrider, turning his world upside down once again. As Aram tries to find his way home with his father's compass in hand, he'll travel across Azeroth's beautiful and hostile terrain, encountering creatures both terrible and wondrous. He'll seek to understand Azeroth's denizens as he draws them in his sketchbook, forming unlikely friendships along the way. But the journey is hindered by Greydon's compass, which never points north. If the compass isn't leading Aram and Makasa home--to safety--to what destiny is it leading them?

It will be a riot when they walk into Undercity and have an interview with Sylvanas. Or avoiding the creepy Apothecary swinging slime candies at them.

Hmm...kinda odd to describe him setting sail for the open seas from Lakeshire when Lake Everstill is landlocked and in the middle of the mountains.

Li-li wannabe

The magic compass looks of Draenei origin since it's a purple crystal. Overall looks interesting and I like that they are trying to make this as canon as possible. Teldrassil art is gorgeous.

They used one of those amphibious gnomish submarines.

I guess the lack of a river connecting the lake to the ocean is a game scale thing. Like the game doesn't have those villages on the trunk or expanded island in the Teldrassil art either.

From the second thread (you really should merge the two).

I agree... this is getting too confusing to have to post everything twice.

That's true, like everything he has ever worked on has gotten canceled.

We're never going to see the second book.

Those are some really upscaled buildings on Teldrassil's trunk.

I was about to say maybe it's actually Shadowglen and Aldrassil, but then that'd make Teldrassil's canopy seem really big.
