I would be surprised if this never came up here, so I’ll just ask:
Did Blizzard address at any point how the system of the Shadowlands connects to time and necromancy in the mortal plane of existence / “our” reality?
We know that the Spirit Healers alert the Kyrians, who then bring the souls of the deceased to Oribos for their judgement. But… what about souls who are raised from the dead after a certain amount of time has passed?
Derek Proudmoore, for example. He died decades ago, his body sunk to the bottom of the Ocean, just to be retrieved by Sylvanas in BfA. Shouldn’t his soul have been in the Shadowlands? In that case, shouldn’t he - shouldn’t many Undead beings - remember what came after their Death? And if he hasn’t been in the Shadowlands - did he just chill next to a Spirit Healer for 20+ years, because they told him that “he wasn’t ready yet and eventually, something would happen to him”?
What if someone is resurrected whose soul was already turned into a Kyrian and who let go of their old memories? Or a soul that is trapped in the Maw? Does resurrection undo “soul transformation” / the Arbiter’s judgement and wipe the mind of the undead being?
To summarize my thought process:
How does Necromancy on the mortal plane even align with the system of the Shadowlands?
