THE BAD DOGS
Rhea: In my haste to escape from Lethlor Ravine, I forgot to tie up one loose end. Nyxondra. She’s free, and she’s sounded the alarm among the black dragonflight. Half the flight is here in the western Badlands, combing for this egg.
I’ll take care of hiding the egg. You’re going to take care of some of the more troublesome dragons. And you’ll have help.
I’ve paid off a couple of mercenaries to help you. You’ll find them inside this inn.
Speak with Amakkar at New Kargath in the Badlands.
Amakkar: You’re the (race) we’ve been waiting for? It’s about time you got here. My legs could use a stretch.
Come on boys! Let’s go kill us some black dragons!
AMAKKAR, JACK OF ALL TRADES
Amakkar: Before we get too crazy with the dragon killing, let me tell you a little bit about how I fight.
I’m not terribly strong or stalwart like these other two, but I’ve got a few tricks. At your command I’ll stun your enemies to keep ’em held still. I also make sure to keep a few potions around for tight spots.
Why don’t we practice fighting together? Head out into the field, and you can see what it’s like to fight with a real orc.
Use Amakkar’s Kidney Shot and Pocket Potion abilities.
Amakkar: I’m looking forward to fighting with you.
GARGAL, THE BEHEMOTH
Gargal: You may not have noticed, but I’m pretty big, as far as orcs go.
I make sure that my two pals here don’t get into too much trouble. They’re small and they don’t have a big shield like me. I’m big, and I can handle a few monsters hitting me! Plus, if I’m careful, I can usually get them to hit my shield instead!
I can protect you, too. Come on, let’s go practice for a bit. I’ll make sure the enemies attack me, and not you.
Use Gargal’s Shield Wall and Mighty Shout abilities.
Gargal: See? No need to worry when Gargal is around. Just let me know, and I’ll protect you from the monsters.
JURRIX THE STRIKER
Jurrix: Oh, you want to talk? Fine.
I’m Jurrix, the only merc here with half a brain. The only one with any bite to my attacks, too. The only reason I keep these meat shields around is to keep myself from getting killed.
Listen, you’re the boss of this operation. You give the word, and I’ll send a fireball right through your target’s heart. If things start getting hectic, I can even warp time a bit so you can fit in a few extra attacks.
Why don’t we go try fighting together?
Use Jurrix’s Fiery Blast and Time Warp abilities.
Jurrix: I think you’re ready, (name). You’re getting the hang of this.

I really don’t like the idea of this purified Black Dragon.
Also, where are you hearing these rumors of a new book from?
Errf? Rumor? Do rumors also have ISBN numbers? 1416550887
“Regardless, there are -rumors- of a new novel titled World of Warcraft: Thrall, Twilight of the Aspects by New York Times Bestselling author Christie Golden.”
That’s why I said rumors.
I’m surprised with evidence like that you haven’t made a newspost about it.
I know. I just remain loyal to Jaime Costas, even if she’s no longer at Simon & Schuster. I only post novel news “if” it comes straight from the publisher. Otherwise, even if the truth is out there right on my face (i.e. amazon, Barnes & Noble) — it’s a “rumor”.
Fret not. I already emailed the publisher to get any details. It’s someone new to deal with, but if any “official” details come out I will post them. Take in mind this early, due to contract legal matters — maybe — sometimes they aren’t allowed to talk about certain things.
I knew about Starcraft: The Dark Templar a year before its release, and I had to wait 10 months to interview Christie (for example).
Seems Christie Golden’s “trilogy” is more-or-less real, after all.
It’s a three-novels contract, not to be confused with a trilogy. A trilogy is a term usually used to determine a single-and-unified storyline is spread across three novels (volumes).
Starcraft: The Dark Templar, Warcraft: War of the Ancients, Diablo: The Sin War. All of these were trilogies.
World of Warcraft: The Shattering, and World of Warcraft: Twilight of the Aspects — these are two separate novels. Otherwise they would be titled with a single name, plus a chapter title.
Example: Starcraft: The Dark Templar (main title), Firstborn (chapter title)
Starcraft: The Dark Templar (main title), Shadow Hunters (chapter title)
Starcraft: The Dark Templar (main title), Twilight (chapter title)
Lol, I know what’s a trilogy, that’s why I wrote >”trilogy”trilogy<.
The storylines of the 3 books may be deeply related.
