Winner of Blizzard’s Writing Contest announced

If you remember, Blizzard held a short story fanfic contest recently. They’ve now announced the winners and printed the winning entry in full:

In the Shadow of the Sun is a nicely executed story of blood elf politics and the tricky negotiations that the blood elf regent of silvermoon has to undertake with the Kirin Tor and with Sylvanas prior to the events of Wrath.

I enjoyed it, and I would happily have read a whole novel about those characters. It isn’t easy to bring NPCs to life and still treat them with some respect. The writer does an especially good job in characterising Rommath, who really is an NPC who just standsĀ  in a room like a lemon (in the game, anyway).
