Tolkien – Father of Warcraft Elves?


I was going to write a post on the similarities of the Sin’dorei & The Sindar

and While I have read Tolkien – I havent read any recently… but I was reading theMeeting at Corvallis – SM Stirling today The Sindar was mentioned in a passing comment as one of the chacters in this post modern Apocalyptic society has a Tolkien fetish.. and is speaking Elvish I love this series for so many reasons, but the comment registered in my brain as a ‘Oh’ I recognise that name from World of Warcraft.. and that led me to Talk: Sindassi a Wow Wiki Entry. That has also drawn some similarities and debate. I wonder if there are any tolkein fanatics that could correct the Wiki…. and without suggesting that Blizzard have ‘stolen’ the name.. they do ‘borrow’ from popular culture. Look at Adam ( Heman) in lowercity.. or Haris Pilton in the Inn. Blizzard wouln’t be the first to borrow content from Tolkien.. and while I am far from an expert… LOTR was a very long book. Very complex – and intricate and as someone who professes to be a sci Fic/Fantasy Writer ( ME… published and paid in small quantities) Like Prachettes World I envy the universe that Tolkein Created. Pieces of Tolkien has found its way into most modern Fantasy… while his work hasn’t been duplicated – his spirit and ideals.. live through so many writers yesterday.. today.. tomorrow…. isnt it fitting it has also done so in gaming..,..
