An interesting column, as always. And a valiant attempt to construct a consistent picture out of something which was not originally designed with any overall picture in mind. (Anyone drawing comparisons to hermeneutic efforts to derive consistent interpretations of inconsistent texts in other contexts in real life... well, I said nothing of the sort here.)

Agreed, an excellent column. I always love reading about stuff I didn't know about the Warcraft universe.While at first glance it seems that some of these correlations are merely coincidental, I wouldn't be so sure. The person painting the big picture ( Chris Metzen, I would assume, as World of Warcraft Creative Director ) is very, very good at what he does. There's truckloads of stuff the guys at Blizzard know about the game world that they aren't openly telling us.Key word is openly. They aren't openly giving us the whole picture, but they give us enough that tons of stuff can be pieced together from what they do give us. My favorite columns on this site are by far the Tinfoil Hat Editions; while speculative, they tend to point out cleverly concealed hints at things otherwise well hidden. Things that make me smack my forehead and wonder why I didn't notice and/or speculate in that direction before.I love you, Anne Stickney. Never stop writing Tinfoil Hat Editions.
