The region was also known as the "Dwarf Highlands" in interviews,  and as the " Northlands " in design docs. An aviary to the northeast of Tyr's Hand. The area was protected by several Wildhammer dwarves and Thrall had to magically transform into a dwarf himself to go there. It is worth noting that on the early maps for World of Warcraft Northeron was situated approximately in the same area, even closer to Quel'Thalas than present-day Hinterlands. A ruined Old Horde base from the Second War. It was said to be in the Badlands of Khaz Modan.
The cave was situated on a rocky beach at Crestfall. Several shipwrecks were around, as well as a few scattered dragon scales. Blackrock Spire and the surrounding area made an appearance as being the lair of Deathwing.
Oh no, there's been an error
The dragon lived in the upper spire, and the great gates of the fortress were blocked by thorny vines, which Thrall destroyed with the Death and Decay spell. Cows were kept nearby in order to feed the black dragon by his troll servants. The trolls had mottled and grey skin instead of being green.
The makers of the number-one selling Warcraft series and the runaway hit Diablo bring Warcraft's personality and depth to the adventure genre. The fantasy adventure game, which is expected to release this holiday season, is the continuation of the Warcraft story and sets the stage for future Warcraft titles. Warcraft Adventures: Lord of the Clans picks up where Warcraft II: Beyond the Dark Portal ended and develops many of the popular characters and locations first introduced in the Warcraft real-time strategy series.
Players return to the land of Azeroth as Thrall , a young virile orc robbed of his heritage after being raised in servitude by humans. Destined to reunite and lead the disbanded orcish clans , Thrall must escape the humans' shackles and return the Horde to dominance. Said Allen Adham , president and founder of Blizzard Entertainment, "With Warcraft Adventures: Lord of the Clans , our goal is to recapture the elements that make adventure games great. Players will be immersed in the world of Warcraft with a rich storyline, character interaction and extensive exploration.
For the first time, players will interact with the Orcish Horde, and learn about their history and motivations. The game adds to the depth of the Warcraft universe and provides the back story for future titles. Within hours of the announcement of the cancellation, fans of the series formed an online petition, demanding the project be resurrected.
On the 22nd of May , Blizzard responded via their website;. Blizzard wants to take a minute to respond to the Warcraft Adventures petition that is circulating on the Internet. First, we want to express our gratitude to the Warcraft fans that took the time to organize such an effort. We recognize that the cancellation of Warcraft Adventures has disappointed some of our customers, and we appreciate that they have shared their opinions with us.
Secondly, we want to let you know that stopping development was not a decision that was taken lightly. It was a hard call to make, but each of us knows that it was the right choice. The cancellation was not a business or marketing decision or even a statement about the adventure genre. The decision centered around the level of value that we want to give our customers. In essence, it was a case of stepping up and really proving to ourselves and gamers that we will not sell out on the quality of our games.
And finally, we hope that Warcraft fans will consider our track record and trust our judgment on ending the project. The cancellation of Warcraft Adventures does not signal the demise of Azeroth. We have every intention of returning to the Warcraft world because there are still chapters to be told.

Yet the full story of the conflict between t Christie Golden has written over thirty-five novels and several short stories in the fields of science fiction, fantasy and horror. She has over a million books in print Rating 6. He knew, without understanding quite how he knew, that she would be by his side until one of them left this life behind. Her fur was so soft and thick. A warm wave of pleasure rushed over him.
The group grunted sounds of approval, and Uthul, though keenly disappointed, was the first to clap Thrall on the back. The wolf half-closed her eyes, and he sensed her satisfaction. Best scene :' Jan 19, Raquel rated it really liked it. So far, I love this book. Golden depicts her villains well, though at times their evil is rather ham fisted. Blackmoore as a drunken moron plotting to use Thrall to propel his political career is appropriately dispicable. I feel like Golden is attempting to give him complexity through the alcoholism, but it mostly falters as Blackmoor is either evil or pathetic.
Usually both. I do love her portrayal of Thrall and Taretha, though I wish we could SEE more of Taretha's intellect and sarcastic wit she supposedly possesses. I'm hoping that by the time he busts out c'mon, there's a jail break coming, I can feel it! Jul 07, Adam rated it really liked it. Pros: For fantasy, Golden is an excellent storyteller. Great fiction! Cons: I don't have anything terrible to say about the book.

It is intended for teenagers - but I knew that before reading it. Overall: I'd recommend this book to any fans of WoW or any fans of fantasy looking for a new series. Jun 14, TL Jeffcoat rated it really liked it Shelves: favorite-books , epic , reviewed , fantasy. This story is not only emotional, it's fast moving. Exciting adventurous and well written. This is a wonderful story about how the most powerful and wisest ruler of the Horde came to power. This story is so good, you can travel to these exact locations in the book inside a dungeon in the MMO.
Yeah, it has a dungeon focused on portion of this story. That's how pivotal it is to the entire world of Azeroth. Jul 04, Colleen rated it liked it Shelves: wizards. So far very pleasantly surprised about this series of books. This one perhaps more than the last one I read, Day of the Dragon. It is able to be more of a standalone book, then really required reading after you've played some of the game. To tell you how good this is, makes me almost want to try out an orc character, but I've been Alliance too long maybe to test that out.
Mar 01, Andy Laishes rated it it was amazing. I really like the plot of this book, it shows you how Thrall came to be Warchief and shows you the conflicts he goes through.
It is well written with twists and turns. It shows how Thrall reunites the clans and puts the Orc race in the correct direction, not one of war and ravage, but one of peace and intellect. Aug 03, Aik Koh rated it it was amazing. Favourite book of the first three books of the Warcraft series.
It's a standalone story about a young orc and his rise to the Warchief to lead it's people. Author simply wonderful in expressing the emotions of the protagonist and it's slow rise to power. Read it almost 3 times. Jun 23, Daley rated it it was amazing. As if I couldn't love Thrall anymore, this book showed me that I could. His life, his struggles, his accomplishments.
This book also shows many evils of the humans. Wonderful read. View 1 comment. Mar 20, Antonia Ivanova rated it it was amazing. Read in one day, this beauty had me build a tremendous respect for orcs. They are noble and wise creatures and Thrall's character was portrayed so tremendously strong. Christie Golden did a great job at that!! Shelves: favourites , adventure , fantasy. This book was amazing!!!
The story was awesome following Thrall and his rise to be Warchief of the horde. This book gave me laughs and tears and as playing Alliance made me feel sorry for the way humans treated the orcs. Brilliant read highly recommend it for anyone into warcraft lore.
Aug 21, Steen rated it really liked it Shelves: books , fantasy-sci-fi. I play the online game so it was sort of interesting to learn more about one of the characters in it. This even prompted me to go to the instance that follows Thrall's escape from Durnhold. Looking forward to reading more in the series. May 30, Raymond Lee rated it it was amazing. I finish this book when I was in cancun. It talk about the life of thrall on how he rise to power. Golden is a outstanding writer, I never found the wow into reading and I don't know if it's her writing or the story but now I love to read.
