    Since it's after Warcraft II, does this mean that we can use dwarven firearms (like 17th century flintlock pistols and muskets)?

    Alright some major questions:

    What weight will be put into judging where it comes to following the Warcraft Universe & Lore? I have a fairly great grasp on Warcraft lore and would feel more confident if this was taken into some consideration.

    Yea I have a habit of not being able to keep stories short >.<; back when I first played and beat RoC (before FT came out) I wrote a 216 page story about what happened after RoC ended XP

    2,714 words and I now finally have my heirloom item... wonder if we have to have an ending for the story, or if we can just kinda like make it go to a "to be continued" thing >.<

    that's what I meant... I just know that If I have to end it I'll be going over the 5000 limit >.<; (really wouldn't be surprised if I went beyond 10,000) XP

    Alright, I have the first idea for my story, it's about an orcish warrior in the midst of battle against the humans. They have responded to Admiral Proudmoore's death with another assault and now he has to defend his nation.

    Finally a contest I can join :D! I will probably join, but I first need some inspiration :/

    Am I allowed to create a story continuing World of Warcraft (Having Bolvar Fordragon as new Lich King etc.)?

    1.Furbolg tribe that was saved by Tyrande in RoC
    2.Some of Fall of Draenor storyline
    3.Afterstorm or other Draenor-themed stuff
    4.War of the Old Gods Fall
