rise-of-the-horde

Home. Whatever race you are, it is a word, a concept, that makes the heart swell with longing. Home can be ancient ancestral lands, or a new place that one has made one’s own. Home can even be found in the eyes of the beloved. But we all need it, yearn for it, know that without a home of some sort we are incomplete.

Rise of the Horde ~ by Christie Golden

As an on and off WoW player since release, I recently decided to delve a bit deeper into the lore aspect of Warcraft by reading some of the fantasy books created on the subject. I already own several of these books, having had this idea for years but never really making the time to fit them in. Well, I finally did and I found the experience to be quite an enlightening one.

to all those sending anon hate to demokron and wrathea need to cool the fuck down. are you really going to be that childish and petty? at least do this shit off anon, or bother someone else. these two deserve none of your bullshit. the tera community is toxic as is and you’re only fueling the fire. i will not tolerate the bullying of my friends and followers. let it the fuck go.

In that timeline though the orcs had already stomped Karabor and they haven't done that yet. So When does Garrosh show up in the Iron Horde timeline and why are all the orcs (sans Frostwolves) 100% onboard with being racist omnicidal maniacs?

Well, we don’t know exactly when in the timeline it falls, other than ‘before critical events in Rise of the Horde.’  It was not a quick process, whipping the orcs into an anti-draenei frenzy.  It was slow, because while they were not friends they had traded with each other and left each other alone.  The tendency of the draenei to keep to themselves was manipulated to make them appear secretive, their appearance was used to make them seem Other, and bit by bit they were…well…I wish I had a better term, but they were dehumanized in the eyes of the orcs—and made to appear actively malicious.

I finished reading rise of the horde last night and now I don’t know what to do with all this anger. This will most def change how I play my pally.

Finally got around to doing some rp too, even got involved with some stranger on the street. It was fun! 

But now I just want to rant a bit about the book. Spoilers under the cut and so on.

So, just cheched the status on my package and it turns out that I’ll have to wait an extra week for my Rise of the Horde and Assassin’s Creed books, which sucks :c
Atleast I get Fable: The Journey this week, but still :c

Clouds of blood red boiled overhead. The daemons swarmed, battering the guardsmen stationed at the redoubt. They were the last. If they fell, there would be nobody left to keep Forman from falling. Lasfire stitched out in great bright red swathes, lancing into daemonic flesh. But for every bloodletter felled, there was another to take its place.

The drop pods broke through the clouds like great drops of steel rain. Their distinct grey heraldry proclaimed their allegiance before they even hit the ground. When they impacted, they smashed giant holes in the daemonic front line. Their ramps blew open with the crack of disengaging locks. Almost instantly, titans armored in silver and grey plowed into the Khornate hordes, their blades rising and falling as they glowed with psychic energy.

At their head was a figure clad in artificer armor of black and silver. His halberd, finely crafted even above normal standards for Nemesis weapons, cut a great path through the howling daemons.

There was a sudden burst of static over the vox before Kera could discern a familiar voice. “A fine mess you’ve gotten yourself into, Kera,” Radcliffe said.
