I'm looking forward to Velen's, and to Lor'themar's. Lor'themar in particular needs something - anything! - to happen to him to save him from being a cardboard cutout. I've always thought it was kinda odd that Lor'themar is still Regent Lord despite the death of the King he's supposedly Regent for and the (apparent) extinction of the Sunstrider dynasty. How long can that state of affairs continue? Will the House of Theron become regents for an empty throne, like the line of stewards of Gondor?

While poking around randomly on Wowpedia, i noticed that Lor'Themars short story, entitled ''In the Shadow of the Sun'' is already posted there. As far as i can tell from the quality of it, this is the genuine one Sarah Pine wrote originally. I have no idea how it came up there first but its there for anyone to enjoy.

@Blindworg: I'm pretty sure "In the Shadow of the Sun" was the Blizzard Global Contest Winner, not from this past one, but the one before that. It takes place between BC and WotLK, if I'm placing events correctly (Aethas asking for magisters to join him in Dalaran, still seething from Kael'thas' betrayal, the rejuvenation of the Sunwell via Naaru, etc).

Thanks for that; I found it at http://www.wowpedia.org/In_the_Shadow_of_the_SunIt is indeed a very good read. Sylvanas' story is certainly reaching its conclusion, will probably finish in this expansion, however it will end. Whatever happens, I'm looking forward to seeing it.

Regarding In the Shadow of the Sun, while it probably is that story, I want to caution that it *might* actually be a new story by Sarah Pine using the same name. One that's actually supervised by an editor from CDev.I sayd that because, while In the Shadow of the Sun is a nice read, it's not remotely relevant to current events.
