Blizzards World of Warcraft är, vid sidan av en kommande långfilm, på väg att få en barnboksserie vid namn World of Warcraft: Traveler. Barnböckerna kommer att skrivas i samarbete med bokutgivaren Scholastic och riktas till åldrarna 8-12, skriver Blizzard via Battle.net. Historien är skriven av Greg Weisman som tidigare har jobbat med The Spectacular Spider-Man och Young Justice.
Såhär beskrivs handlingen:
"It's been years since twelve-year-old Aramar Thorne, a clever boy who is never without his precious sketch book, has seen his father. So when Captain Greydon Thorne comes ashore and asks his son to join him at sea, it feels as if someone has redrawn Aram's entire world. Before he knows it, Aram is aboard the Wavestrider with Lakeshire fading to a distant dot on the horizon. But the thrill of adventure quickly fades, as Greydon relentlessly schools Aram on how to handle his cutlass and how to relate with the strange and diverse creatures of Azeroth. In addition, Aram struggles to get along with the Wavestrider's crew--especially second mate Makasa, a tough teenaged girl who has been reluctantly placed in charge of him.
"Just as Aram starts to get his head above water, a band of vicious pirates attack the Wavestrider, turning his world upside down once again. As Aram tries to find his way home with his father's compass in hand, he'll travel across Azeroth's beautiful and hostile terrain, encountering creatures both terrible and wondrous. He'll seek to understand Azeroth's denizens as he draws them in his sketchbook, forming unlikely friendships along the way. But the journey is hindered by Greydon's compass, which never points north. If the compass isn't leading Aram and Makasa home--to safety--to what destiny is it leading them?"
Den första boken kommer att släppas i november, medan uppföljaren beräknas att vara klar under 2017. Se videon där Blizzard berättar mer här.
