Nick goes it alone this week as he decides to talk a little about the lore and some of his crazier theories. He laments that Legion has had too much content for him to do given his personal life right now. He then talks a bit about the Timeless Isle and how that bounces through time just like our characters do, except that no one notices because our characters aren’t supposed to always be around like an island. He then goes into why he loves the story and how he loves probing at the cracks, trying to find where the story is weak because its all been bootstrapped on after the original lore coming out of Warcraft: Orcs and Humans.

That leads to him talking about how the lore is why he plays the game, and that the story is enganging and keeps him coming back. This leads to him bringing up the Timeless Isle again and talking about his theory that the universe of Warcraft knows that it is a game since Sargeras uses avatars just like we do, and Jaina’s magic usage is once described as her manipulating numbers, like math. If the world is a game, does that mean that E’lune and the Void Lords are programmers of some sort, and the Old Gods are viruses? Possibly, but even Nick admits the theory might be pushing the boundaries. All this and more on this week’s The Tauren and the Goblin.
