World of Warcraft fans are waiting for the next expansion, Shadowlands, and Blizzard is releasing a series of animated shorts during the wait. The final one focuses on Revendreth and the vampires that dwell within. The Venthyr are one of the four Covenants players can join, but unfortunately, they’re dealing with the same issue everyone else is: all the souls from people dying are going to the Maw, which is like Super Hell, and the Shadowlands are dying from the lack of new energy,

Luckily, it appears like the guy in charge has a plan. Sire Denathrius writes a little memo towards all his subjects throughout the animated short, and it sounds like he has things under control! As long as you’re fine with a little Hell Fascism, it looks like Revendreth will turn out just fine.

Previous shorts, like Afterlives: Ardenweald, shows the other zones coping with these problems with heroic sacrifice or personal revelations. It looks like Sire Denathrius is taking a little more selfish approach, which is likely why players end up facing him as a raid boss. Denathrius is set to be the final boss of Castle Nathria, Shadowlands’ first raid. Shadowlands itself will be released on Oct. 27.
