YAY, Dwarf lore!Another possible option for RPing Magni's fate - sort of denial. The belief that he is not dead, only "frozen" somehow. It is not a coincidence that he got turned into a diamond and diamonds last forever, you know. It also plays into a good reason why Ironforge dwarves would be so resistant to Moria taking the throne, not only because of the Dark Iron ties that exist not, but because her father is not technically dead. Could have the dwarves accepting the Council of Three as a stopgap but also to stall for time. There is also what happens if Magni returns. Muradin and the Wildhammers may be fine stepping aside, but Moria... not so much.And thanks for addressing the Explorers League, since that is always at the heart of how I RP my dwarf - the curious dwarf following in Brann's footsteps, wanting to see the evidence for himself, not be the next great hero, but just to know.Awesome work, as usual.

I'm a sort of personal denial myself. It's my belief that the ritual *succeeded*, and that Magni will come back to us (reborn of stone) after the ritual has completed as an honest-to-Titan Earthen. And then perhaps--just maybe--the rest of the Dwarfs will follow suit and become Earthens as well. I'm crossing my fingers.Seeing as we're due for new character model upgrades in the future, I wouldn't call it completely far-fetched a possibility, but all the same I know this probably isn't the direction things will go. In all likelihood, Magni will stay stoned up until the heir to the Dark Irons becomes old enough to inherit the throne, in which case Magni will return to interfere (although likely not as an Earthen).
