The final push, the breaking of the siege – and it’s not really very pretty in there. The 5 man instances are filled with a sense of foreboding, and while I’ll avoid spoilers, the first 5 minutes inside the raid instance is pretty mind-bending as well.
Any character that is fighting there will need to find some strength, some faith, or some /something/ to keep them going, just like any person that’s ever found themselves in the throes of a terrible war; just like the soldiers whose letters we found on the undead during the Scourge Invasion last year.
Today’s prompt is in kind.
Your character is at war (if they aren’t in a position to be fighting the Lich King just yet, either pretend, or have them in another of the many wars that have ravaged Azeroth – from the Sundering, to the Shifting Sands, to the First and Second wars). Write a letter home from your character to someone they care for – a mentor, a lover, a friend, a family member.
If your character isn’t one that would BE at war, write a letter they receive from someone they know/care about that is fighting, or the letter of encouragement they might send back.
This doesn’t need to be long, and it doesn’t need to be dark, necessarily. Will your character ask for more cookies? What happens to inkwells in Icecrown (I’d bet they freeze). Are there any comforts of home that they miss particularly? This isn’t meant to be an epic prompt or a dramatic one – just a little slice of how your character deals with the one thing that seems to have been constant on Azeroth for … well, the extent of this World of Warcraft. I guess they named it that for a reason, huh?
