Titel: Chroniken Vol. 2 [SPOILER] Verfasst am: 15. März 2017, 21:25 Beitrag  Diese Nachricht und die Folgenden als ungelesen markieren Antworten mit Zitat

Huhu,

der zweite Teil der World of Warcraft Chroniken kommt bald raus, in US und A gab es wohl ein Missgeschick bei der Versendelogistik. Es sind wohl einige exemplare vorm eigentlichen Release an die Käufer gesandt worden, ergo die ersten Kernfakten waren im Internet noch bevor das Buch offiziell erhältlich war.

Ich werds mir dennoch auf deutsch kaufen.

CHAPTER 1: PRIMORDIAL DRAENOR

Part 1: Breakers vs. Primals

• Draenor/Dawgar/Rakshar – no world soul, but plenty of Spirit
• Elements lived in relative balance
• Abundance of Spirit gave rise to untamed life, notably plant life
• Massive plant life forms known as Sporemounds roamed Draenor
• Sporemounds provoked plant life, forest, jungles, swamps
• Roots penetrated into the earth to absorb Spirit energy
• Spirit energy creates hivemind in Sporemounds known as the Evergrowth
• Aggramar comes across Draenor and notices the Sporemounds
• He wants to stop the Sporemounds from consuming the planet
• He uses the four elements to transform a mountain in a living being – Grond
• Grond carved out the surface of Draenor and did battle with the Evergrowth
• Three powerful Sporemounds—Zang (swamps), Botaan (forests), Naanu (jungles)
• Grond defeats Zang & Naanu, whose bodies become Zangar Sea & Tanaan Jungle
• Pieces ripped from Grond and the Sporemounds evolved into beings due to Spirit
• From plants came genesaurs, from Grond came colossals
• Grond’s death unleashes elementals who exist due to Sporemounds eating Spirit
• Grond’s corpse becomes a mountain range in northeastern Nagrand
• Elemental Furies make their home at the Throne of the Elements, skull of Grond
• Aggramar fits the colossals with titanic discs to imbue them with arcane power
• Aggramar senses death of nearby constellar and leaves, never to return
• Colossals lure Botaan from the Evergrowth to their rocky territority to weaken it
• Fighting continues, and the magnaron are born from the remains of the colossals
• Magnaron did not obey orders but still felt compelled to fight the Evergrowth
• Remaining colossals swarm the Evergrowth and detonate titanic discs to destroy it
• Evergrowth loses hivemind, colossal corpses lack energy so no creatures rise
• Botaan’s remains still held energy, his body creates Farahlon
• Botaan’s life energies transformed the magnaron into fleshy gronn
• Gronn continued degenerating into ogron
• Ogron eventually evolved into the ogres who in turn devolved into the orcs
• Botaan’s remains created sporelings, podlings, botani

Part 2: The Great Avians


• Spirit of Life saturated Draenor and gave rise to beasts of great size and strength
• Winged creatures survived best because they could avoid the Primals and Breakers

• He warned Rukhmar who burned Sethe’s wings to ash; Anzu tore out his eyes
• Sethe laid a curse with his dying breath using his flesh and blood to defile the land
• Anzu eats Sethe to seal his curse, which cripples him and he no longer flies
• Sethekk Hollow is the zone where Sethe died that was corrupted by his blood

CHAPTER 6: BEYOND THE DARK PORTAL

Part 1: Reforging the Horde (8 years after the Dark Portal)


• Stark life for orcs on Draenor, Warsong and Shattered Hand wanted violence
• Ner’zhul, having remained on Draenor, still held lands in Shadowmoon Valley
• Had fallen into despair, visions of dead orcs, skull tatooed on face like Pale
• Teron Gorefiend remembered ancient relics spoken about by Gul’dan
• Gorefiend planned to retrieve three relics of power
• Book of Medivh: tome of power, detailed blending different types of magic
• Eye of Dalaran: crafted by Kirin Tor, could amplify and focus magical energies
• Scepter of Sargeras: could open gateways between worlds, crafted by Legion
• Gorefiend and death knights cared only for themselves, wanted to conquer world
• With artifacts, orcs could create portals to other worlds in order to conquer
• Did not know of artifacts exact locations, would also need Horde’s help
• Gul’dan’s former allies not trusted, especially the death knights
• Only Ner’zhul had influence to rally and lead clans of Draenor
• Ner’zhul resisted offer, did not trust death knights any more than he had Gul’dan
• Gorefiend persisted, Ner’zhul relented, decaying of Draenor was imminent
• Gathered remaining chieftains: Grommash, Kargath, Fenris, they thirsted for battle
• Opening Portal first time required lots of power, restoring it now much simpler
• Gorefiend told Ner’zhul to use lingering power in skull of Gul’dan
• Skull had been passed between orcs as prized trinket, now claimed by Ner’zhul

Part 2: Return of Garona


• Garona wandered alone after Second War, still resisting Shadow Council’s impulses
• Confident she could resist, she decided to find only person she trusted: Khadgar
• Infiltrated Nethergarde Keep during night, had not seen each other since Medivh
• Confessed to killing Llane, Khadgar believed her that she had been compelled
• Could sense Shadow Council’s magic still woven in her thoughts
• Knew at least one member of Shadow Council still alive on Azeroth
• Over several months, Khadgar worked to unravel Council’s hold on Garona
• Finally free, Garona vowed to hunt down Shadow Council on Azeroth

Part 3: Fel Omens

• Khadgar, sensing energies from rift, summoned Alliance leaders to Nethergarde Keep
• Leaders reluctant to come, kingdoms still rebuilding, but they came anyways
• Southern half of Black Morass now wasteland known as Blasted Lands
• Northern half of Black Morass named Swamp of Sorrows to honor the fallen
• Warned leaders that fel energies surging, someone attempting to open Portal
• Leaders gave full support to Khadgar, Turalyon coordinated military from Stormwind
• Tasked Danath Trollbane with leading small army to Blasted Lands
• Turalyon to rally rest of Alliance forces and march south

Part 4: Reopening the Dark Portal


• Drawing on skull’s energy, Ner’zhul succeeded in opening rift after few weeks
• Grommash led Warsong, Shattered Hand, Laughing Skull, and Thuderlords
• Soldiers invaded Blasted Lands accompanied by Gorefiend and death knights
• Orcs constructed physical frame for Portal so no need for constant influx of power
• Kilrogg and Bleeding Hollow had been watching Blasted Lands for signs of return
• Kilrogg informed of what happened since war, sent back to Draenor for rest
• Trollbane’s small army stood little chance against sheer numbers of orcs
• Danath only member of army to survive, fled back to Nethergarde Keep
• Danath confident he could hold orcs until Alliance reinforcements arrived
• Orcs not numerous enough for full invasion, but had different objective
• Horde seemingly prepared for assault, but Gorefiend went searching for artifacts
• Death knights and Fenris went too, all unnoticed by the Alliance
• Garona noticed, began tracking them to discern what they were searching for

Part 5: Lord Daval Prestor

• Deathwing had gone into hiding shortly following Second War
• Plan had failed, orcs had no conquered, but red dragons still held prisoners
• Other dragons not taken action for fear of falling to the Demon Soul
• Deathwing sensed Portal reopening, realized orc invasion was only a feint
• Decided to manipulate humans once again, Alliance still angry with Alterac
• Debates about whether kingdom to be punished or should cease to exist
• Disguised as Lord Daval Prestor, cousin of Perenolde, joined debates in Lordaeron
• Prestor advised Terenas to establish martial law in Alterac until succession settled
• Move split attention of Alliance army, weakening response to Horde’s invasion
• Humans found Prestor charming, thought he was acting with best interest for Alliance
• Deathwing desired to reestablish black dragonflight, perhaps beyond Azeroth
• Draenor safe from eyes of Alliance and other dragonflights

Part 6: The Book of Medivh

• Gorefiend knew only of Book of Medivh’s location, located in Alterac
• Traveled to Blackrock Spire to make contact with Dal’rend and Maim
• Gorefiend needed their alliance with Dragonmaw to have access to dragons
• Meeting disastrous, Dal’rend declared himself warchief of “true Horde”
• Considered Ner’zhul coward and usurper, had no intention of helping his plans
• Gorefiend left without dragons but soon approached by Deathwing
• Deathwing to give black dragons in exchange for moving precious items to Draenor
• Told Gorefiend location of other artifacts (Dalaran and Tomb of Sargeras)
• Gorefiend could not refuse, split group into three parties with black dragons
• Book of Medivh most difficult to get, so Gorefiend went to get it personally
• Alliance in Alterac unprepared for dragons, soldiers fled upon seeing them
• Gorefiend found Perenolde, who was slipping into madness making demands
• Deathwing made Perenolde lose mind so he could not contradict Lord Prestor
• Gorefiend humored Perenolde, agreed to wipe out Alliance for the artifact
• Left king alive, honored his world and completely wiped out the Alliance garrison
