Cantha and the Envoys

Factions was by far my favorite expansion, and I've always been curious: what exactly are the envoys? They "shepherd the dead" but what is their relation to Grenth, if any? Do Canthans go to a different place in the Mists when they die? And who/what the heck is the Oracle of the Mists? Does he have any relationship with the human gods? He always seemed so powerful.

From a design standpoint, I'd really like to know how the "cosmology" of Cantha was developed - it's inspiration, etc. It always felt so different from the typical gods stuff, and I really enjoyed that. Either way, kudos to everyone who developed the lore of Cantha :)

    We still don't know how Shiro got away from the Envoys and showed up in the Gate of Madness

    So true! There is so much we don't know about how they function and where they come from. I really want to know :)
