"Our toons are the minor players of the world; Knaak writes in "our" sphere of influence, meeting the major NPCs but never really interacting with them beyond that."I would probably like Knaak's work if he really did write in "our" sphere of influence. His original characters are not sharing the same stage as our player characters. They share the stage with the existing major lore characters, and almost always eclipse them. Essentially, he tries to create new major lore characters, rather than focusing on the existing ones, and if the number of his creations with models in the game and roles to play are any indication, it works. We have enough damn characters in this game, some of whom are immensely powerful and even lead factions, but only give one or two quests and then fall off the face of Azeroth for all intents and purposes. Knaak's characters usually step in to fill what he appears to think is a void that the current lore characters can't handle, which is also incredibly annoying. It has nothing to do with Horde/Alliance factionism and everything to do with not liking the way he writes, and the only one here who sounds like an overzealous faction fanwhatsit is you.
