World of Warcraft Classic Brings The Burning Crusade Back Blizzard Entertainment's World of Warcraft franchise is expanding into WoTLK Gold
a new market though it's likely not the one you've been hoping for. The game developer today announced an agreement and Scholastic to launch World of Warcraft : Traveler an illustrated series for children that is based on the video game franchise.
The series of books is targeted at children aged 8-12. so it likely won't feature the same tone as World of Warcraft the game that's rated T for teens. The first book, a hardcover edition, is due out in November on the US, UK, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada in addition to a sequel coming out in 2017.
Traveler is set in Azeroth and follows a "young group of World of Warcraft characters discovering the mysteries and majesty of the world surrounding them."
The book was written by Greg Weisman, known for his work on Young Justice and The Spectacular Spider-Man. The first one contains sketches from Blizzard's Samwise Didier, while the cover was created by a different Blizzard artist, Stephane Belin.
"We're delighted to collaborate with Scholastic on a series which brings Azeroth to life for a new crowd," Blizzard story and franchise vice president Chris Metzen said in a statement. "Greg Weisman is a skilled writer who's truly gotten to the very core of World of Warcraft with the characters he's created for us here- we're thrilled with the work he's been doing on World of Warcraft : Traveler."
The official story description for Traveler:
"It's been years since twelve year old Aramar Thorne, a clever boy who is never without his precious sketch book, has been able to see his father.

Before he knows it, Aram is aboard the Wavestrider with Lakeshire being reduced to a tiny mark on the World of Warcraft . But the excitement of adventure quickly fades, as Greydon continually teaches Aram in how to handle the cutlass and relate with the strange and diverse inhabitants of Azeroth. Aside from that, Aram struggles to get together with the Wavestrider's team buy WoTLK Gold
, and especially his second-mate Makasa an incredibly tough teenage girl who is placed in charge of him.
