    Pretty cool character. He's sort of like Timbersaw, in that his bio is vague and creepy and he has a gag personality based on how innacurate his visions are, sort of like how Timbersaw is convinced that trees are goimg to kill him and that's his personality.

    [My english is not good. So sorry if I misunderstood something.]

    The story is good. I like characters who suffer mentally, especially when it comes to trying to find out something about themselves.

    But... I still can't see him. I know W3 model (which I don't like) and I hope Valve try something different from a regular wizard. I can't see him coming out only with this lore.

    He could be a semighost human who struggles to avoid oblivion. He knows what happened and what will happen with everybody/thing (past, present and future) - but don't know about himself, don't know how he become a semighost. His frustration floats between the foretold vision of everything, but none to himself. As a medic officer in a war camp: he knows what suffering will see and he is sick and full of it, but can't say when his time will come.

    With such personality, I can see Sam A. Mowry (like Warlock or Necrophos) as voice actor for him.

    That is very much intellectually questionable, unreliable and currently far from true.

    maybe, told me this, he and auroth would women, due to sexism

    but I think the volvo does not make the same mistake twice


    of course this is much better

    Well, I can't match Valve, not really, that's just my best attempts. In my eyes, it's borderline, but possible, they've done worse, with space cows and everything.

    And I did promise lots and lots of rival lines so the only way for me was to ultimately deliver; there are even more but I left them out as these cover most aspects, maybe I've gone overboard with race-based ones. A good point regarding AA, I might want to add something if something floats by. Additionally, I'm still missing some sections such as runes, so those will come as well.

    umm, they not say, oracle will be a woman?

    It is uncertain. Oracle can be woman or be man, we do not know yet.

    I love it, though I reckon with all this reference to the end of the world, there is so much room for rival or ally lines with Ancient Apparition.

    Doesn't sound like something they would put in. The rest is tippy-toppers.

    Valve likes some humour but mentioning a stream i highly doudt. But it is a very clever concept to have him know all about everyone except OD since he is an enigma... more than you know... enigma...
    However i don't think he should have lines for basically everything and you should maybe think about the ones that make sense and improve on them, quality not quanity, I personally think that

    Timber, OD, Natures, DP, and maybe Elder titan, I dont understand why no ally lines for natures, why not

    Ally:
    "Oh so you can for tell a seed will grow into a tree?... I don't think thats a power you alone possess..."
    "Tequoia, both of us predict many lives will end this day... No im not talking about trees!"
    "And to think you use tangos... heretic!"
    "I wasn't aware forcing trees to fight and perish was protecting them... oh it isn't."

    rival:
    "Whats wrong, is it winter for you already?... Twas predictable."
    "decompose and grow anew, Stopping this cycle is irritating"
    "Did my flames do too much damage compared to their healing properties?"
    "...Maybe i shouldn't have healed you with fire..."
    "I failed to fortell how flamable you really are..."

    it would be funny if he did mock nature's pointless title, he doesn't really predict anything that no one can already tell...

    Oh and there NEEDS to be a line for treeant:

    "Come back here, I'm trying to heal you, Promise!"

    Oh you should also have an ally line for doom

    " Don't bothering telling people their doomed, Thats my job now."
    "Speak of the devil, I was just talking about you!"

    Well, that is the point. Personally, my standpoint in the whole thing regarding his origin? He's just completely insane, probably possessed by something. He does, however, have tremendous magic powers. It's left to interpretation, and sometimes hinted at (see some kill and ally lines for instance) to keep the duality up. Maybe I have played too much Timbersaw, but, yeah, that was the intended personality. He'd be an OD expy if not for that, and that'd mean that I'd need to come up with something original, and that ain't right.

    That is also why it isn't properly stated who he was - he has already forgotten that, he's nuts and bolts. Or... is he? He might just as well be.



    Also comes as a resolution of the Ancient question. They would totally pick up a powerful magician who might be just a 99% insane if they could sway his frail mind to fight on their side.

    Or maybe the herold of the impending doom could interfere with the balance of things and perhaps insert himself for his own reasons.


    Besides, regarding his goofiness, I was thinking him up with Nolan North in mind; nearly all of his heroes, Shadow Demon aside, have some parts serious and some parts ridiculously derpy. It's a nice contrast, sometimes, and sometimes it's a bit annoying (I'm looking at you, Gyrocopter). And speaking of the race fates... have you noticed that everything seems to end in an entirely different scenariom, often incompatible with others? It being on the same plane of existance? Hmm.

    I would personally cut the wacky part a great deal. The lines like 'ohmygodithurts' make him a lot like timbersaw, i.e. a comic lunatic, something that doesn't really fit someone who saw the end of everything, at least imo. I would also add a short intro to his lore, like what he was like before the fateful day when his powers of precognition were bestowed upon him in order to show just how sudden his fall to madness was (although this would conflict with some parts of the lore).

    Nothing to add apart from that. The lines which detail the end of certain heroes are a nice touch, although some of them seem a bit too long.

    I like it, to be honest I wouldn't expect less than a great job from someone like you. Perhaps the thing with the game going well/bad might not be all that great, but overally it's pretty good. I mean, an Ancient wouldn't choose someone that wouldn't want to do his best to "win", that's like playing on Russian servers. Or perhaps the Ancient knows more than we can see? Interesting thought. Oh and I especially like those tiny references scattered around.
