Back in October, we covered the heart-warming story of a Secret World Legends player who wrote a novel based on the game’s IP.

Warm fuzzies all around. The first book, TO SIR, WITH LOVE: An Unofficial Legend of The Secret World, came out last year, while a sequel, LONDON UNDERGROUND: An Unofficial Legend of The Secret World, just released at the end of January.

Interestingly, the WoW pre-patch event is called War of Thorns and one of the central characters in the comic is the Lady of Thorns, a character seemingly on the side of "good" in the Nexus.

The "Secrets of the Storm" comic begins with Deckard Cain meeting a new character named Orphea who speaks of how realms die through "chaos, destruction and war".

Orphea shows the Lady a shard from "another realm the Raven Lord wants even more" that has just formed. They decide to try … [Read more...] about Secrets of the Storm Comic Hints at World of Warcraft Faction Conflict
