One of the things I like about WOW, is that it honors deceased people whom Blizzard employees have known, worked for Blizzard, or had some other relationship with the franchise. And I can't help but ponder if in the Shadowlands, we might encounter some NPC's of deceased people, who are also meant to be tributes to real life deceased people. Here are some deceased people that could get NPC's based on them, in the Shadowlands.
Anthony Ray Stark: Friend of a Blizzard Employee, died from a heart condition while scuba diving.
Michel Koiter: Blizzard Employee who died during the making of WOW. Died of an unexpected heart failure
Bradford C. Bridenbecker: Brother of Blizzard CEO, and avid WOW player. Died of cancer
Dak Krause: Avid WOW player. Died of leukemia
Ezra Chatterton: Victim of child cancer, who created the character of Ahab Weathoof as a part of the Make a Wish foundation. Died from a stroke.
May all of them find peace in the Shadowlands
Think this idea could work? Or is this overdoing it?
