Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the
World of Warcraft. Matthew Rossi will be your host today.
Questions. Let's answer a few, shall we?
If you were able to pick the subject and theme of a WoW novel, what would you pick, and who would be in it?
Honestly, while I don't know what period I'd pick, I know who
I'd like to do a novel about - Sky Admiral Catherine Rogers. (Before I read War Crimes
I wanted to do a Windrunner sisters novel, but now Christie Golden has pretty much topped that for me forever.) It really depends on what they do in Warlords,
though - if she doesn't get any screen time in game, then I'd want to write about what she was up to during that period. If she does
get some screen time, then I'd want to write the aftermath. But either way, Sky Admiral Rogers fascinates me - her responses to what the Horde has done in Southshore just seem more real
than what you get from other characters. I like that she's absolutely not forgiving the Horde, and that she's fully willing to wage their kind of war back at them. I get the idea that an eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind, but I also get that it's not natural feeling to expect everyone
to just get over things. And we could definitely use more women in WoW
Runner neck and neck with the Admiral would be Garona. Can you believe we've never gotten a Garona novel? Oh, she's been in books and comics and stuff, but never her own story. A half-draenei, half-orc character with ties to important characters from both factions, how have we never had a novel of her life? Crazy. What was her mother's name? How did Gul'dan raise her? What did she do before Gul'dan sent her to be his emissary to Medivh? What happened to her after she killed Llane and Orgrim Doomhammer tortured her almost to death? I know there's a lot of baggage with Med'an, but I'd love to see some 'Lone Wolf and cub' style action with Garona in the period between the Second and Third Wars.
