    I have read some posts in the US WoW Story Forum about Calia and i liked some of the idea's, especially the ones where Calia is failing to rule and guide the Forsaken. They don't care about her compassion and don't except her, because she is an outsider, who has nothing in common with the Forsaken, has never experienced anything they have. She ,and Derek also, would be like a child to them when it comes to being undead, the Forsaken being undead for far longer and have far more experience to cope with that kind of existence in their own way. I also liked the suggestion that Calia could experience bad interactions with the living, especially the Alliance, where she meets Alliance ambassadors who find her disgusting, calling her the queen of corpses or even threaten her and the Forsaken.

    These kind of experiences could shake her connection to the Light and in her current naive believes based on her ignorance. In the priest hall, she is a discipline priest already, that means, she also has a connection to the Void. All this time with the Forsaken could turn her a few shades darker, because the behaviour and the views of the Forsaken would rub of on her. That even by being resurrected by the Light, the dulling and corruption of the emotions by existing as an Undead effects her and Calia becomes more and more like the other Forsaken herself. To the horror of characters like Anduin and Jaina. This could go so far, that she starts to use more Void magic instead of Light, or she uses both, as she did as disciplin priest. Blizzard would even have the option to bring in the Cult of Forgotten Shadow at this point and integrate Calia into the Cult, making her at the end not the sole leader of the Forsaken, but only one member of a Desolate Council. If her views are twisted by being Undead, she could also try to create her own version of the Cult of the Damned, where she brings living and undead together in a certain way.

    Something like this could be a good solution for the character, IF she really becomes the leader of the Forsaken and we are not kind of lucky and she will only be the leader of Allied Race for the Alliance. But sadly, as she is a creation of Golden and literally Anduin with tits, the ideas mentioned above probably won't come true.

    Yeah, they're overdoing it by placing Voss so central in the Forsaken storyline. But the root of all sins comes from the way Blizzard never properly developed a single Forsaken who wasn't that fucking undead elf of Sylvanas, they have no previously developed character capable fill the humongous vacuum left by her and so they hastily came up with random ideas like Calia becoming an "holy undead" and Voss making a 180° out of nowhere in BfA.

    Blizz is demonstrating they learned nothing from the complaints regarding Kael'thas and Illidan in BC. People hated that they turned both into villains because they were interesting characters and it felt like we were losing them for no reason. People hate Lore'themar Theron because he is boring. Yet here we are, taking the most interesting faction leader and turning them into a villain and replacing her with a boring leader.

    Here's a hint Blizz: create interesting characters and torture them for 300 pages. THAT is good writing. Deleting all your interesting characters by turning them into villains and killing them off or removing them and then replacing them with a bunch of boring characters SUCKS as storytelling.

Space platforms as in Starcraft. Just a totally fantastic tileset & theme that I'd be very keen to explore. They could do some wild things.

    Regarding Calia, I would say that I don't think she's destined to fail but, unless Blizzard intends to make it "easy peasy it'll be easy", it should be a controversial and complicated process. One thing to say is, the Forsaken owed a lot to Sylvanas but there is no doubt over how much self-serving the character was and how hard she always feasted on the Forsaken's worst impulses, first to ensure they would have sharpened their hatred against Arthas and then to make sure they would have continued to be her "bulwark against the infinite" by feeding their hatred and distrust for the living. Because of that, Sylvanas wasn't a good leader for the Forsaken and I never, ever thought she was.

    That being said, Calia looks a lot like the other extreme of the spectrum: the Menethil name could be viewed with nostalgia by some but also as a stigma for others; Calia's more genuine behavior could be way more beneficial compared to Sylvanas' die-hard cynism, but at the same time her undead status it's so unusual and weird that many Forsaken could find themselves uncapable to properly relate and sympathize. Plus, the Forsaken have plenty of borderline horrible people and Voss herself admitted that many of them still love Sylvanas (obviously). Popping out of nowhere and say "I'm the new queen bois" could be perceived as an unintillegible move for them.

    I guess with this the Forsaken are gone and reborn is the Kingdom (Queendom?) of Lordaeron.

    How the hell does she have zero connection to the Forsaken? 90% of the Forsaken are citizens of Lordaeron, her people. She is the rightful Queen of Lordaeron. But talk out of your ass, I guess.

    she doesnt understand anything about the forsaken.
    She is not the rightful ruler. technically it would be kel'thuzad based of when Arthas gave him the kingdom or Sylvanas based on right of conquest.

    She was hunted by scourge, constantly in fear of her life and never being able to see her family again. Shunned for being the sister of Arthas and was attacked (and killed) because people feared her without truely knowing her which is exactly what happens to forsaken.

    Because she relates in no way to the Forsaken outside of being the daughter of the King who was murdered by the same dude who killed most of them?

    Because she went through none of their hardships and now has a form of undeath that carries none of the side effects or downsides of the Forsaken? Hell becoming lightforged undead made her even more detached from the average Forsaken.

    I'm sure that hiding out in villages getting railed by footmen to spite her dad is exactly the same as being raised into an ugly piece of shit with reduced emotions, being hunted down by those around you and having to fight for it every step of the way, with your own religion turning its back on you instead of giving you a super special new form so you don't have to give anything up.
    Dickmann's Law: As a discussion on the Lore forums becomes longer, the probability of the topic derailing to become about Sylvanas approaches 1.

    Not everyone turned their back on the forsaken. Calia realized pretty much from the start of their existence there was some good undead.

    Have you played a forsaken since vanilla? And when where you complaining about Sylvanas not being a true forsaken? Calia is sylvanas 2.0

    A ton more then 3. And its funny how you are pro Sylvanas killing everyone who disagrees with her and now you are upset when a new leader who hasn't killed her dissenters (yet) shows up. Sylvanas was a sexy elf banshee who could convert her body to ghost form and yet I don't see people like you bitching how she wasn't a true forsaken. Calia is almost completely Sylvanas 2.0 who only happened to have most of the bad shit happened to her while alive instead of her undeath and yet you people are crying that she isn't a true forsaken when the forsaken have never been lead by a true forsaken. Fleeing from ghouls and shit isn't hard?

    of course Sylvanas was forsaken. she created the faction.

    So killing any returned undead who don't want to side with you is what it means to be forsaken? And creating a faction doesn't make you one. A king can order the formation of some knights under his command. It doesn't make him a knight the experiences of being a knight are what makes him one. Exactly what you are claiming against Calia which also works against Sylvanas.

    Have you been forsaken since vanilla? Because what being a forsaken is has changed several times now in wow.

    here we go down this rabbit hole.
    as long as you dont become a problem for the forsaken you can do whatever you want if you are raised. you can screw off and do almost whatever

    I'm annoyed that leader composed of sunshine and hugs who stared in the same novel that attempted sweeping retcons to Forsaken culture just in an attempt to make Calia at all swallow-able as a leader (which failed) is now set up to be a leader that doesn't relate and doesn't identify with the Forsaken Identity at all.

    Sylvanas was a sexy elf banshee who could convert her body to ghost form and yet I don't see people like you bitching how she wasn't a true forsaken.
    I mean christ have you ever even played a Forsaken or bothered to spend two minutes watching Warcraft 3 frozen throne cut scenes? Sylvanas fucking CREATED the Forsaken.

    Calia is almost completely Sylvanas 2.0 who only happened to have most of the bad shit happened to her while alive instead of her undeath
    Calia went through absolutely zero hardships the Forsaken did while she was alive, and even in undeath she doesn't She's a lightforged undead with zero of their downsides,and is somehow more saccharine now than she was in life.

    and yet you people are crying that she isn't a true forsaken when the forsaken have never been lead by a true forsaken. Fleeing from ghouls and shit isn't hard?
    The fact that you can't understand or just simply are doubling down on fake ignorance makes your entire argument one from bad faith. If Sylvanas isn't a true Forsaken Calia sure as hell isn't.

    Fucking a footman and then running away from zombies AND surviving isn't hard. Having your will stripped away, stuffed back into your own necromantic corpse only to eventually get your will back and to form a kingdom against a world that hate you is.

    Calia never went through their struggles, does not understand them, and thinks the soul crushing magic that dampens their positive emotions can be cured with rainbows and kisses.

    So Sylvanas didn't just slaughter a bunch of Forsaken recently? Also you never mentioned anything about the other stuff I wrote.

    Just FYI I hate the idea of lightforged undead. I'm just pointing out that people who were fine with Sylvanas not even remotely having the experiences of a normal forsaken and having looks and abilites beyond them while also being worshiped instead of shunned is nowhere near what a forsaken is. The Forsaken have never truly had a forsaken leader except maybe for like 2 seconds when they tried and formed a council. Just because she created the faction doesn't make her a forsaken look at my previous post for clarification.

    Also don't forget that many of the new whispers seem to be refences to Calia so its likely she wont even last long as a leader. And if she doesn't go the villain route then its likely blizzard creating a new way for forsaken to exist now that Sylvanas has fled.
