How is it that more people aren’t into lore? It’s the best part of the game. Without it, even our favorite video games would be little more than advanced versions of pong. Andrew Stroscher thinks way too much about games. It’s one thing to read the quests, another to read them slowly, and yet another to write about them on your own game-lore blog. Such a person would have to be an obsessive, story-loving masochist. Andrew Stroscher is a screenwriter.

Andrew Stroscher (aka Cocles) does other things too, such as web-writing, iOS development, and voice acting, but screenwriting is where it’s at. Andrew Stroscher procrastinates by growing carnivorous plants, talking about cars, and paying too much attention to what he’s reading in-game.

If you wish to contact Andrew Stroscher, please feel free to do so as that would assist greatly with the aforementioned procrastination. You may even learn why Andrew Stroscher enjoys writing his full name so often. Andrew Stroscher.

Andrew Stroscher has a Twitter feed he never updates. He also has a Facebook page, as well as a Google+ profile.

Wrathion, the new Earth-Warder?

November 15, 2011
Thumbnail image for Wrathion, the new Earth-Warder?

He’s the most potentially awesome character WarCraft has introduced in years.  Wrathion, the Black Prince, the last black dragon on Azeroth.  An impressive title, but that’s not the best part.  The real kicker?  The Red Dragonflight used Titan technology on him, before he was hatched, to purify him.  So unlike Deathwing, unlike any other black […]

Mists of Pandaria Lore

October 24, 2011
mists of pandaria lore

I’ll be updating this post as we learn more Mists of Pandaria lore, but for now, there are a few things we can surmise. First and foremost, Blizzard is obviously further sub-dividing the originally expected “Maelstrom” expansion.  This is a very big deal.  Why?  Simply put, it could mean we’ll have not five, but six […]

Lady Sylvanas Windrunner & The Future of the Forsaken

I’m going to start this post differently.  There have been a lot of requests to discuss Sylvanas Windrunner, so I imagine many of you will be happy to see this.  That said, if you really want to understand Sylvanas Windrunner in our post-Cataclysm world, you need to read the short story Edge of Night.  Period.

Will Saurfang Return?

September 13, 2011

He’s arguably the most badass orc of them all.  Sure, Thrall can lay down some hurt, but when it comes to just busting heads with an axe (the way an orc should), it’s hard to beat Varok Saurfang. So when Cataclysm came out, what did Blizzard do?  They decided to stuff Saurfang away for safe […]

Calia Menethil – Where is she?

[November 2011 Update: With the next expansion taking place entirely in Pandaria, it looks like we’ll have to wait a little longer to learn Calia Menethil’s fate.  Suffice to say that the current speculation still stands.  We’ll see her when Kul Tiras finally makes its appearance in WoW.] This is some pretty stretched speculation here, […]

Where has Sargeras been?

Sargeras will be the final boss of WoW’s 5th expansion.  That I’m sure of.  But where has he been in the meantime?  The common misconception is that he’s dead.  That’s a load of bunk.  He’s as alive as ever.  That said, Blizzard definitely went out of their way to make it as confusing as possible.

Queen Azshara – WoW’s Next Boss after Cataclysm?

June 11, 2011
Thumbnail image for Queen Azshara – WoW’s Next Boss after Cataclysm?

With every major expansion in WoW we have had one headliner boss.  Sure, there have been cameos such as Kil’Jaeden, but ultimately only one who received top-billing.  The three so far have obviously been Illidan, Arthas, and now Deathwing.  So who will be next? That’s simple:  Queen Azshara.  Period.  And here’s why…

Frostmourne, who has it now?

May 9, 2011
Thumbnail image for Frostmourne, who has it now?

It was the sword of the Lich King, but where is it now?  At the end of Wrath of the Lich King, Frostmourne was shattered during the final battle with Arthas when Tirion Fordring struck the great runesword with the even greater Ashbringer.  After the battle, the shards of Frostmourne remained on the ground, seemingly […]
