This column continues to confound me. The narrative is constantly interrupted with "maybes". If your intent is to recognize the many varied sources of lore and attempt to reconcile them, name those sources and explain their differences, and the potential impact of those differences. If your goal is to tell a story, just pick the timeline and facts that you believe are strongest and present them as such.Both of these are valid approaches, but continuing to mix them leads to a disjointed mess that is unpleasant to read. I'm not sure if it would work in a blog post format, but perhaps you could tell the story in narrative form, and add footnotes with sources and alternative interpretations.

Hate to tell you, but this is pretty much how Blizzard lore is...Muradin has Frostmourne stuck through his chest in WC3.Now in Wrath "O HAI GUYZ!!! It was just a scratch. Merely a flesh wound."Same game, Mal'Ganis gets Frostmourne stuck in his gut.Now in Wrath, "O HAI GUYZ!!!! Oh yea, I've been in this Admiral's body for a bit. Oh that? just a scratch."Illidan gets Frostmourne stuck in him.BC: "O HAI GUYZ!!!!..."WIth all that, I was really disappointed in Saurfang junior. By all the lore sources he should have been in ICC, totally okay. "O HAI GUYZ!!!"By the way, if you play Horde you find out that new plague reduces human or undead alike to slime. No body, no survival, just goo. We see Bolvar hit with it. Then DRAGONS BREATHE FIRE ON HIM! Walk into ICC..."O HAI GUYZ!!!"They play with lore all the time, don't worry about it too much.
