Regarding your comments about Malygos' possibly being "evil", I'd like to think of him more as an anti-villain - one who believes his cause is righteous and for the good of the people, but his means are considered to be cruel by those outside of his chosen caste. He obviously believes that something has to be done about the rampancy of magic, but the way he goes about it pisses a lot of people off.Now for a question. Whenever there's war, there's profits to be made, so I can't help but think the Venture Co. or some other profiteering faction is at work in Northrend. Any confirmation on this?

XeroHedgehog, I agree with you about Malygos. He's not out to dominate the world or slaughter innocents, he's doing what he believes is necessary to right the state of magic.

Well, the Scarlet Crusade view their cause as righteous, even though their methods may be a bit...extreme. So that argument is a bit iffy. Although, Malygos is not evil, he has most definitely lost his sense of reason. If you have read the WoW books you would know that Malygos went completely insane after Deathwing evaporated the entirety of the blue flight using the Demon Soul. Thanks to Krasus (Korialstrasz) going back in time and saving a handful of blue eggs, he was able to save the blue flight from extinction...which in hindsight is apparently a bad thing. So no, Malygos isnt evil...he is just madly deranged and has had a rather traumatic set of experiences.

The main thing he wants to avoid is another Sundering. The use, or overuse, of magic is what caused the Burning Legion to find Azeroth, and thus try to destroy it. As an aspect, Malygos has been appointed to protect Azeroth. If the overuse of magic is what has caused big problems in the past, remove magic in the present and you theoreticly remove many big problems in the future. Compared to the Sundering, the lives lost in Malygos' war to reclaim magic is a tiny drop in the bucket.Hehe, its actually very similar to our reasoning to invade Afganistan and Iraq. Not exactly retaliatory, not exactly preemptive... Somewhere in between.
