    See what happens! I think I'll have to do New Bloom stuff first. Since it's actually... topical.
    Thanks, waiting for it

    Lazyness. Not to mention the lack of bugfixes, and the amount of new ones with each new content added

        The homosexual is right.

          The homosexual also feels the need to bump the thread up with the latest update that isn't that recent anymore - Pudge.
          Heroes this user should seriously reconsider ever picking again.

            ...or that the perspective on that art is a little bit off to fill in the space in the bottom left corner (yes, artists do that). When I look at that art I see Axe and Disruptor of about the same size, with Axe being a bit larger only due to his muscles.

              Ah, but Disruptor is explicitly stated to be "small for his kind"!

              Not to mention - new lore thread up! Thanks to 1337_n00b (it feels terrible to type that name down) for the help with Sven's items. And for bouncing speculation regarding Pudge, in fact.

                    JUGGERNAAAAAUT!

                    Juggernaut is my second favourite character, by gameplay, design and personality. It was most fun to write about him.

                      Really nice read

                      Hmm, i wonder if Jugg's people literally doesn't have faces, or is it just a figure of speech?

                      Also, YAY! Dragons next! ( Although im not sure if you'll ever mention Auroth or Cute Puck, but whatever )

                        Oh, the wonders we see from far above, and the shadows we cast on the world below.

                          ... and the world even further below, and those that sometimes climb back up...

                            Hi Nemzal! love you're posts! could you in turn read this little thing i wrote? thought you might like it. Although your posts seem to start to concentrate more on individual heroes. maybe its just me but i like reading about 'conspiracy' sort of stuff where possible relationships between heroes are explored. keep it up!

                              Hm, interesting idea, that. It would make a lick of sense, certainly, and the ol' Bone King does have a habit of making false promises. No idea about Pudge's longevity, though.
                              Shan't say much about the actual content since that's not what this thread's for.
