Recommended Posts

hcKameZ.jpg

Blizzard released a new three-part audio drama called "A Thousand Years of War" - The Story of Alleria & Turalyon, written by Robert Brooks and narrated by Stephen Pacey.

The story talks about Alleria & Turalyon fighting on Argus to end the Dark Titan's crusade, joining the Army of the Light and Alleria embracing the Void.

You can also download a PDF version of the drama here. The mp3 versions are cut off at 5:22 for some odd reason.

PART ONE: TWO BRIGHT LIGHTS

Ranger-Captain Alleria Windrunner and High General Turalyon’s disappearance was not the end of their last war, but rather the beginning of a new and more terrible one.

PART TWO: THE EMERALD STAR

After joining the Army of the Light, Alleria and Turalyon’s war against the Burning Legion took them all the way to the seat of the demons’ power: Argus.

PART THREE: SHADOW AND LIGHT

The Burning Legion is attacking Azeroth. The Army of the Light is on the verge of defeat. Alleria and Turalyon are on opposite sides of the cosmos, desperately searching for the key to ending Sargeras’s crusade.

Oh I love this things, loved the Khadgar vs Guldan one and loved this too <3

That series was awesome, looking forward to hearing this one too. Keep it up Blizz, lore has certainly gotten increasingly interesting lately.

I feel like it's because we are back on track with our "real" lore - while it was awesome to revisit things in WoD, we are getting new characters, old ones being reintroduced with new life, and new progression for our world rather than another.

Legion has certainly been a step up in lore. I completely agree with you too. Where WoD lacked lore and gameplay, Legion lacks neither. It's really awesome because the Legion has been such a big part of Warcraft lore for a long time now and to see them finally getting a proper story is awesome. 

I also can't wait to see how Blizz does with elaborating on the light (Naaru) and their goals and methods, as after the Illidan cinematic it's obvious that they aren't one sided beings and might have a secret side to them we don't yet know. Same goes for the Void, who seem to be becoming increasingly present in the lore. I would love to see how they tell the story of the Void Lords and even more so, how they go forward with Old Gods like N'Zoth. Not to mention, more of a story to one of Blizzard's most iconic characters ever, Jaina. 

Speaking of Jaina, to me, it would make sense if the Old Gods harnessed her rage after what Garrosh did to Theramore and took influence of her. The last thing I'd want however would be for her to fall to the Void. If she even is under the Old God's influence I hope we can wrestle her out of it's control and save her. Then her story can continue in a peaceful type of way.

I just can't see how they can make her a peaceful character in any way anymore - she has had such a pure, unkempt hatred for the Horde instilled in her that I don't see how they can ever make her work with them in the future, no matter the enemy. The Legion threatened destruction of the entire world and she didn't care.

      Another response from a Blizzard veteran on the sexual harrassment and discrimination lawsuit filed against Activision Blizzard, as Chris Metzen, former Senior Vice President of Story & Franchise Development, the man behind the story and lore for most Blizzard franchises up until 2016, voice of Thrall and many more has now talked about the issue. He mentions his response was "later than it should have been" and continues:

      To take our minds off the news that's been in focus for a few days now, just for a second, here's a very cool machinima by Pivotal and MasterVertex. If the names sound familiar, it's because they are part of the team that brought us the incredible "Judgement" machinima recently.
      While we'll have to wait quite a while to see how/if Sylvanas is punished for what she did to Teldrassil, In "Eye for an Eye" we see Tarren Mill getting a visitor:
      Hopefully the cameo at the end indicates we get to see the actual person behind what happened to Teldrassil also get a little machinima where she is dealt with.

      We have another old Blizzard employee joining in on the commentary surrounding the Activision Blizzard lawsuit, as former Lead Systems Designer Greg "Ghostcrawler" Street offered his thoughts on the matter.
      More specifically, there's an old 2010 BlizzCon WoW Q&A video clip that's been posted to reddit and received a lot of attention, which was pointed to as being related to the issues/atmosphere alleged in the lawsuit, and while Street barely even said anything in it, he still thought he should explain the situation and apologize.
      As he was then asked directly about the situation at Blizzard at the time relating to the lawsuit, he also responded:
      You can read even more replies in this thread.

      The recent Activision Blizzard lawsuit is having effects in World of Warcraft as well, with many players staging various kinds of protests, including sit-ins in Oribos while raising money for charity, and checking up on a disappearing NPC.
      The most prominent of the protests is from the Fence Macabre RP guild who stages a sit-in on the Oribos steps with hundreds of players, and also managed to raise a huge $9,500 for the Black Girls Code non-profit organization during it:
      The guild tried to get as many individual players together on the same shard via raid groups, but there were still plenty you can't see in the screenshots.
      Another interesting "event" in the game is players heading to Stormwind to "check up" on a specific NPC, namely Field Marshal Afrasiabi (who is named for Alex Afrasiabi, one of the people mentioned in the lawsuit allegations, and who also left Blizzard in 2020).

      The more interesting thing, however, is that Blizzard has seemingly started despawning the NPC, as he was not there when some players arrived. Players had actually been asking for the removal of all references related to Afrasiabi, so this might just be Blizzard listening, although there are other references still in-game.

      And finally, a message from one group of players to the other:

      In terms of actual player comments on the matter there are, of course, many more threads discussing the issue over on r/wow, so if you want to see more community reactions head on over there, with most comments in the main lawsuit thread.
