It is often tradition around new year to think back on the year which has passed, to relive the bad, the good and the ugly, and then look towards the new year. I am going to skip lightly over the first part in this editorial, we had a good run for most of the year, peace and prosperity - and as Lorewalker Cho once said "With peace comes great noodles"
. The end of the year hurled us into yet another conflict, this time with ancient dragons versus... well ancient dragons, and the discovery of the Dragon Isles.
So, what might we expect, or want of the coming year? I'll do a few promises and predictions about what you can expect from the Lion's Roar newspaper, publishing, event hosting, etc.
which was cancelled during Winter Veil will be rescheduled, hopefully with the same content, except maybe less Winter Veil decorations.
will continue, we will have one later this month (20th) and will continue to be a thing regularly for as long as people enjoy them. Many a king or queen of jokes will be crowned!
, the long awaited (okay... maybe that is a stetch) engineering magazine will hit the streets sometime this spring. We are still working on the content and submissions, or ideas are welcome.
The Lion's Roar literature club (previously book club
will start up again - since it has limited spots not everyone who wants to join gets to. More information later!
Article continues after the ad.
The Roaring Days music festival
will make a return - most likely sometime in March. Musicians and stall owners can start getting in touch if they want to participate.
We will finally have a section for classified ads
in the paper.
will be a new section added to the paper. It will have short blurbs of news which will either be unfolded later or just left at that.
will be a section for longer in-depth articles, like the ones I did on the fall of Gnomeregan.
of course our regular news coverage will continue, the quality you as readers have come to know and expect will continue into the new year!
If I had one wish for something Id like to see in the new year then it would be an improvement of civil-rights for citizens of the Alliance, as well as a lower gap between the rich and the poor. Equal opportunities for all, and respect for people different than yourself. It may be too much to ask for, but we could try.
-Hardhy Lester, Editor in Chief.
We are as always looking to hire and if you have an idea for the paper then get in touch!
I know a lot of people do new year's resolutions and here at the Roar we would love to hear some of them! Send us a letter with your new year's resolution!
