As one of our readers, Izzie, pointed out to me, there was recently a great lore interview with Chris Metzen and Micky Nielson at New York Comic Con that you can check out here:
The most important part of the interview, however, is confirmation of the upcoming novel by Richard A. Knaak, Worlf of Warcraft: Stormrage, due in 2010. This story will tell us everything Malfurion Stormrage has been up to throughout his absence from Azeroth in WoW. It will also explain the Nightmare, what’s behind it, and go into detail about what has actually been going on in the Emerald Dream this whole time.
But look at what this is really saying…
Why would Blizzard Entertainment commission this veritable tome we’ve all been waiting for about the Emerald Dream, and schedule it for 2010, if the next expansion were the Maelstrom?
Wrath of the Lich King had its intro novel, “Night of the Dragon.” It looks like the Emerald Dream Expansion now has its intro novel too.
