I can't wait to read the short story for Lor'themar! I'd like to know how the city and its people are being ruled now that it's not in emergency-mode martial law. I wonder how all the influential groups, i.e. the Rangers, the Magisters, and the Blood Knights, share the power. I used to like Lor'themar back when fan-fic defined his personality. (See Lor'themar Theron's "Little Black Book" at http://regentlord.blogspot.com/ .) But ever since he played a part in the Quel'delar questline and was revealed to be a jerk, I've been hoping for Lady Liadrin to step up and take charge. Why should the elves honor Kael'thas' decision of who would lead in his place?

Would LOVE to see Liadrin in control.Not only because I'm completely biased since I love Blood Knight RP, but I would also love to see a strong female faction leader that isn't driven by revenge or partially defined by her romantic relationships.

The story is actually already available to read. On the portion of the community site that lists the upcoming leader short stories, the one for Lor'themar is shown to be "In the Shadow of the Sun" by Sarah Pine. This story was actually the winner of the 2009 Blizzard Global Writing Contest, and can be read in its entirety at the link below:http://www.wowpedia.org/In_the_Shadow_of_the_SunUnfortunately, you won't find the answers to any of your present-day concerns since the story takes place between BC and WotLK. It's still a fantastic story and gives a lot of much needed depth to Lor'themar's character. Definitely worth a read!

I kinda remember "In the Shadow of the Sun" now. There is no link to the story from the official site yet: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/game/lore/#leader-storyI am still hoping to hear something more recent about the current politics there.

I would do backflips of joy if Alleria returned and took control of the Elves of Silvermoon. Now that would add a million different plotpoints (political, RP, drama, etc.) to the in-game story. I've been begging for an Alleria vs. Sylvanas arc from Day 1....I just don't know if Blizz would ever take this route though....as awesome as it would be.
