That was my idea too Smile. The crow seemed too obvious IMHO Rolling Eyes.

the crow is one of the options - the too-easy option. (see chapter one of book two for another crow moment.) I like the other options better.

I don't think I've ever seen this before, where the author himself hasn't decided on one of his own plot lines months after he writes about it. You, sir, are one of a kind. Smile

Indeed! It's too easy! And I think you are better than taking the easy way out, Albatros Wink.

I highly doubt he's taking the easy way out, and I'm almost 100% sure he knows what happened to Katy M. Just trust him and wait a few chapters, you'll see.

There are several options for how she survived, and I kind of like all of them. Since it doesn't impact the story much one way or the other, I've decided to shrug and let the speculation continue. Wink

As you can see, even the Great Bird hasn't made up his mind. Of course, he might just be letting us speculate on this to distract us from other, more important plot lines ...

Course, the crow could easily have been Medivh. He could be the behind the scenes, string puller of the Law. You never know. Very Happy

Since other than Tyrande's bird form, there hasn't been a flying form for a druid since the 3rd war. Which as M said took place around 500 years ago (give or take 200 years).

But then why was there a crow in a huge mountain range? Confused Ah well, all I know is when I saw that line about the crow, I knew she wasn't dead. As long as it's not some random deus ex machina stuff like "Fang/The Law teleported her to safety!" or "But at the last second, she was caught by the Flash, who just happened to be passing through," then I'm okay with it.

Very possible. In fact, I would venture that the law is Medivh, and that he's just pulled the wool over the agents' eyes by claiming he isn't. His mother (forget her name) could be it as well, but basically I believe that the Law is a person, because the Law is clearly fallable (the whole "freeze Varithwhatever thing). It could even be one of the dragonflights.

There's one point in the story where fang says that Medhiv is an agent of The Law, not The Law itself though. If he were The Law, I don't think he'd show himself at all, even as an agent of The Law.

Also, he spoke of Medhiv in the past tense, as in he was an agent of The Law, and isn't any more.

But what about that dream Horse had when he was a kid? The one that told him to run away. The description of the person in it was very similar to Medivh...

I wonder if he fulfilled this promise? I'd venture a guess and say that it has been at least a month since the Battle at Ironforge.

^^^ It's definitely been more than a month. It's been many months. ^^^

A question.. After the current Part is completed, will you launch straight into Part 3, or will there perhaps be more Orcmar Shorts? Or are the Orcmar Shorts done?

You are only allowed to do Shorts if the end of Part 2 is not a severe cliffhanger. Otherwise... INSTANT STORY!! Twisted Evil

Not certain about how official the source is, but this is contradicted by the novel "The Last Guardian." In it, Aegwynn (his mother) is very much alive during Medivh's lifetime. However, the ending of WIII:ROC made it fairly clear (to me, at least)
Now that I've joined the debate anyways, I might as well give my theories on the Law. I don't think we can point a finger at a person, or organisation, and say, "That's the Law." The Law does not exist as we define existance. It may simply be the natural drive of sentient creatures to organise, build civilization, grow and expand in relative security (meaning peace). Thus, the Law may simply be the natural tendancy to work together for the benifit of the group that is present in all sentient civilizations. Of course, this does not explain the longevity of those who join the Law, so there's probably some supernatural influence as well. Perhaps a "God" of sorts, but not one who will take an active role in society, but will rather quietly influence events to its goals. If this is the case, then everyone and everything is an agent of the law-some are just more aware of it and work a little harder to follow its will. Thoughts?
