Byron the Tauren Rogue: And here's your lovely parting gift

Before Byron snuck off into the shadows, he told me to give you all a little something to remember him by. "Now," you ask. "what could you possibly give anyone that wasn't obtained illegally?"

That's easy: IM icons!

You are all more then welcome to use these swanky icons for things like forums, Twitter, or your absolute favorite site to talk about WoW!

Also, if you somehow missed the ending of Byron, the review, or you don't even know what I'm talking about, why not try catching up a little bit?

Byron the Tauren Rogue: The cow, the legend, the gnome

When I approached the editors of WoW.com to ask them if they'd be interested in letting me do some work, I was thrilled when they agreed and took me on. The creative freedom I got was incredible: "Write us an idea, and if it's all right, you can do it."

Thus, Byron the Tauren Rogue was born.

Now, the legend of the tauren rogue is just one of many jokes within the WoW universe, like the cow level, or skilled ret paladins. Even though I was told that this idea was "done to death," I really wanted to try out the lovable oaf sort of character. What I didn't expect is what it would turn into.

The general synopsis of Byron is as such:
Byron is a young, male tauren who dreams of becoming the first rogue of his kind. His friends -- skilled rogues themselves -- dare Byron to sneak into Stormwind and steal the Shield of Fordragon. If he can acquire it and safely escape the city, then he has more than proven himself.

Sunday Morning Funnies: Even the sticker is shoddy

Comic News: Out of World announced that there will now be a comic released each week, rather than 3 times per month. It has also been seriously suggested that The Adventures of Disgraph T. Dwarf will be back soon! Unfortunately, I do not have the date yet. You guys should also take another look at the SMF Gallery Guide; WoW, eh?'s artwork has been updated to show a custom piece!

Last, but certainly not least, Kelly Aaron's, and WoW.com's, Byron, the Tauren Rogue, has debuted its finale.

WoW.com's Weekly Comic: Byron, the Tauren Rogue


Welcome to another edition of the WoW.com Weekly Comic, Byron the Tauren Rogue!

Well, here we are: the end of Byron. Our story ends with Byron, the bovine hero, watching a raid take place upon the ever-assaulted Crossroads. He has chosen his path but swears to use it to protect those who need to be protected. He is now one with the shadows, always watching over his beloved Horde.

I wanted to thank all of you for sticking with this story from the beginning. While I'll be the first to admit it got off to quite a rocky start, I feel that this comic has evolved a lot, and I'm ultimately happy with where it led. Next week, I'll be featuring an article which, among other things, will be an overview of the entire series. I'll talk about the characters, the story, the writing and many other points. I hope to see you all back again!

For those who are worried -- don't worry, I'm not going anywhere. I'm taking a small, two-week break to write the next story and pen out a couple of fun little Byron-related goodies. Byron may come back one day, as this next story will be completely unrelated, but who knows?

From the Byron crew, we all thank you for reading. Take care!

Also, I know that Ironforge guards are all male in game, but hey -- I'm progressive like that.
