New Warcraft Trade Paperback Collections (TPB)

Written by Medievaldragon on . Posted in Uncategorized

I added a new Warcraft product to the Blizzard Store. First, the Warcraft Archive book by Simon & Schuster Pocketbooks scheduled for October, with 624 pages
($ 13.45), is a trade paperback(TPB) of three important Warcraft pocketbooks:

?“In the past, the world of Azeroth teemed with wondrous creatures of every kind—until the arrival of the demonic army known as Burning Legion shattered the world’s tranquillity forever. Now Orcs, dragons, goblins and trolls all battle for supremacy over the scattered, warring kingdoms—part of a grand, malevolent scheme that will determine the fate of the world of WarCraft. In Day of the Dragon, the maverick Mage, Rhonin, goes on a perilous journey into the Orc-controlled lands of Khaz Modan to uncover a vast, far-reaching conspiracy, darker than anything he ever imagined. In Lord of the Clans, the tumultuous story of the enigmatic Orc known as Thrall—who has been a slave, gladiator, shaman and warchief—is at last told. The Last Guardian depicts Medivh’s struggle against the malice within him to become one with the fate of Azeroth itself…and change the world forever. And in Blood and Honor, the noble Paladin Tirion Fordring—enemy of the Orcs—finds his most fundamental beliefs challenged when an unexpected act of compassion forces him to decide who are the men—and who are the monsters.”

If you are new into Warcraft lore, this trade paperback will be a great starter for you. It compilates the book where Medivh the Last Guardian opened the Dark Portal and how Khadgar and Lothar fight him to save the world of Azeroth from doom after they discover Medivh is under control and possessed of Sargeras the Destroyer, lord of the Burning Legion. The Day of the Dragon has the Dragon Aspects, Krasus the red dragon and Rhonin the mage, telling the story of the second war in Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness when Grim Batol is taken by the Horde.  Rhonin is sent by Krasus to free Queen Alexstrasza the red dragon aspect. If you want to read the War of the Ancients Trilogy, this should be your first book to read as these two are the main characters of the trilogy.  Here you also get to know about the Demon Soul, used by Nekros the warlock to control the red dragonflight and their matriarch. The Lord of the Clans retells the story of how a baby orc later named Thrall is risen up by a human named Aedelas Blackmoore, who raises him to be a gladiator and teaches him to read and to learn militar strategy. And how Thrall escapes to free the orcs from the internment camps becoming later into the Warchief of the Horde. I recommend getting this book right away. It is a Collector’s Edition with a limited print of only 3,000 copies.

The products below are not yet in Blizzplanet Store, and not available for pre-order in USA.  It’s only a heads up so that you are aware they are coming soon.  The second book is titled Blizzard Legends Vol. 1 – which consists of a book per game in a collection trade paperback format.

The Blood of Honor book was written by Chris Metzen and depicts the background story of Tirion Fordring, his child son Taelan Fordring and Eitrigg the Blackrock Orc.  These are NPCs in World of Warcraft.  Taelan is the Highlord of the Scarlet Crusade in Hearthglen, Tirion is in Eastern Plaguelands and Eitrigg is at Thrall’s chamber in Orgrimmar. Starcraft Uprising is the story of Sarah Kerrigan’s past … long before becoming the Zerg queen of blades. Good to read if you are considering to read the new Starcraft: Queen of Blades by Aaron Rosenberg (recently released on May 2006). The links of the books above contain the excerpts.

Note: I have contacted SOTA toys to find out if there is a new World of Warcraft series planned. Amazon is listing a World of Warcraft series 1 (3).  However, it shows a Mammoth plush pet.  There are no elephant-like creeps in World of Warcraft. Unless Blizzard plans to add them in Outland. Hopefully, SOTA toys may offer some feedback in the next few days.

UPDATE: SOTA toys confirmed they no longer have a World of Warcraft license. Therefore, Amazon is listing a mistake. Read more details.  [Digg it!]
