New World of Warcraft Short Story: The Jade Hunters
The final WoW Faction story for Mists of Pandaria , Jade Hunters, by Matt Burns has just been published on the official website. You can now read it entirely there.
Fenella Darkvire is an architect skilled in the art of golem-assisted mining. She’s also a Dark Iron dwarf, and a living legacy of her clan’s treachery, but she’s finally earned a chance to prove herself.
Moira, Queen-Regent of the Dark Iron clan, has selected Fenella to lead a varied band of masons on a “diplomatic endeavor.” Their mission: travel to far-off Pandaria, and rebuild a landmark of great mystical import. It should be a simple assignment for a rock-worker of Fenella’s caliber – except for her “team.”
Carrick, a gruff Wildhammer blacksmith with an affinity for the elements, and Fendrig, a legendary Bronzebeard miner nicknamed the “Hand of Khaz,” don’t exactly get along with each other, and they like working for a Dark Iron even less. Fenella’s motley crew is a powder keg… and it just might ignite when they’re forced to take part in an ancient pandaren competition: the Great Jade Hunt.
Can they unearth their quarry among the hazardous mines of the Jade Forest, or will the ages-old animosity of the dwarven clans bury them?
