Just reading Tides of Darkness and as far as I can tell Faol did not know about the destruction of Northshire and particularly it's Abbey as he asked Lothar whether it survived.
And further to that how do we know his name may have been Farol? Seems like a big assumption. Paynes 20:43, 16 February 2008 (UTC)
- First off, multiple accounts may exist for Faol and what happened between first and second war. This may have lead to conflicts existing between sources. I suggest you look at our lore policy for when this happens, WoWWiki:Lore policy#Conflicts.
- As for "Farol", Shadows & Light calls him "Farol", and a later RPG book, Alliance Player's Guide discusses that Archbishops take on a new name when they become Archbishop. Jarl for example became Benedictus. So if Faol had a previous name as is supported by info established in APG, then its possible that Farol was that name. In anycase the way its worded in the article points out that it is speculation, and not essentially known for sure.Baggins 20:53, 16 February 2008 (UTC)
