Erthalif, Aegwynn, and the Grand Magister of Quel’Thalas: A Headcanon

maltrake:

It’s canon that Erthalif was among the elves on the Council of Tirisfal, and when he died, he left his “redoubt” to Aegwynn. (Why does an old elf need a military stronghold, anyway? Who knows?) It was in this fortress that Aegwynn found a scroll belonging to Kithros, an elven mage who perfected the skill of moving things between dimensions. Unfortunately, Erthalif’s property was really fucking nasty. Aegwynn says it took “weeks” to scrub away “the desiccated food and drink” and “chase away the vermin.”

Yeah, I wrote an essay in response. Sorry, under the cut. It’s not that coherent. :X

‘Nother question. Is there a specific name for Lor’themar, Halduron, and Rommah as the joint leadership of Quel’thalas?

Idk, I thought the whole government was ‘The Regency’ ala Regency England with Rommath and Halduron being advisers to Lor’themar who is the actual ‘Regent’ and the whole thing is supposed to last until the Convocation of Silvermoon is reformed and a new king is chosen.

Now, I have a headcanon that Lor’themar is actually somehow distantly related to Kael’thas and he was chosen to be Regent in the first place because he was not only the Ranger-General but because he is of the royal line. (because that’s how Regencies usually work, a lesser member of the line placeholding for the ‘heir’, and really if being General was all it took to make him Regent then why didn’t Kael’thas just make Rommath Regent?)

Also, I think at this point both Rommath and Halduron are just waiting for the Convocation to be reformed so they can crown Lor’themar as King without him being able to protest (in-canon I believe the King and the Convocation were kind of like checks and balances, so as Regent Lor’themar would have to go along with their decisions)

Really they just want to see him in a crown, because can you imagine Lor’themar in a crown, in that ceremonial armour, hot damn

So yeah, take from this what you will, kitty.

*runs away into the dark cackling*

I have literally wanted to respond to this all day, but, you know, working.

Lor’themar/Rommath. Opinions?

Knee-jerk reaction: yes (but then, we Rommath fans are so starved for character attention I would probably approve of something absurd like Rommath/Moira Thaurissan).

Long response under cut. ;)

((You got it, bb. Okay, I got “Just Like a Woman” by Bob Dylan, which does not work for this pairing… but it’s still better than “Va Va Voom” so I’m going to go with this.))

((Yayyy. I got “Ma Vlast” by Smetana and I had to go google it. It means “My Country” apparently, which is appropriate.))

Jaina did not dare stay too long in the countryside, not with the Banshee Queen’s spies crawling as far south as the Arathi Highlands—and further, if the rumours could be believed. We must strike quickly, while surprise is still on our side.

 She walked with Vereesa among the Kirin Tor encampments. Her cheeks had high colour from the wind, and her eyes were very bright, but her expression was frozen, and she kept looking north.

 Jaina understood. “You miss it, don’t you?”

 Vereesa jolted at the words. “Lordaeron has little meaning for me.”

 For a moment, Jaina almost let the evasion stand. But then she said, “I meant your home, Vereesa.”

Vereesa gave her a searching look. There were lines of pain across her forehead, lines that had not been there a year before. Even that was to be preferred to the cold paralysis that had seized her after Rhonin’s death.

 But to her surprise, Vereesa smiled and took Jaina’s hand in her gloved one. “I have a new home,” she said. “And I’ll die before anyone takes it from me.”

Belf lore

Since not everyone is of the same station in Quel’Thalas, and we do have poor people, where would they live? I assume the northern part of Eversong is reserved for the elite and now that most of it has been restored except for the Dead Scar. 

Murder Row would be a good place, but SMC is also known for keeping up its appearances. Which I assume isn’t keeping its poor within the borders of a magnificent city.

So would it be the closer to the human settlements in what would be ghostlands now?

Murder Row is a possibility, I think, and a likely one. As I see it, the number of impoverished people in the city would have increased exponentially after the city was destroyed/sacked, in large part because so much of the country became uninhabitable. So in Quel’Thalas you’d have a cross-section of people who have always been poor, versus people who became poor, possibly from positions of extreme wealth. (Are there tensions between these groups? Do they live together? No idea.)
