The reason i decided to send you guys an email, is to answer a question at the end of show #93. One of the callers asked what the apropriate order of reading the warcraft-lore-books is. I had to find this out for myself as well, since i’m a huge fan of the lore. The WoW homepage gives some guideline about this. It gives the timeline for the novels and also has a brief history on the lore.

I’m a listener from Belgium and while I was browsing around the European forums I found a few “anti Gnome DeathKnight”-threads. The thread is a whole discussion about gnome Deathknights and why they should or should not be implemented. I am interested in what your opinion is about this topic. I personally think it would just be utterly ridiculous. I mean, it’s bad enough that someone can tank Maghteridon while he is not even larger then Magtheridon’s thumb but that they would make them Death Knights (meaning they would be corrupted, super-strong, commanding officers of the Scourge)… I wonder what you guys think about it.
