  • The Forgetton Slayer (L.I.P.) woot cherry post!

    Heyo all :3!

    Seeing as I used an emote in the opening of my very first post here, should I assume I'll never be taken seriously? Heck, may as well make a mention of that one dota mod where TP scrolls are B ;p.

    Well, I love writing, and I love lores! Really want to add to DoTA2s lore as well. I have a Lore in Progress on my own 'pipeline'. I do NOT work for VALVe or the DOTA2 dev team. Just a nublet who loves gaming !

    So, my question here is: why is this Lass of Infernos called a slayer? I assume its merely vestigial, though I could be wrong. I look forward to hearing from you all, aka 1337, Mr.H, blue pony guy, and golden gal. I forgot their names, but I remember something about them ! Have a good one!




    UPDATE: Well, just about finished with this story. However, two paragraphs....became THREE pages D=! Also....thinking of rewriting it in 1st person -.-. I have NOT forgotten you guys =D! Well, keep your eyes shaded, because this is going to be a blast...oh wait, almost went without an [email protected]=! FIXED!

    Wait, so i am the Golden Gal? XD

    First of all, hello, and sup?

    Second of all, can you explain Lass of Infernos ? Are we talking about Lina, the Slayer, who has been inspired/partly taken from the Anime called 'Slayers'?

    And lastly, are you a fanfiction - lore - writer? I love reading a good fanfictioned - lore, so good luck!

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

      Yes, yes you are !

      Hello. Im doin'....better?_? Anywho, I indeed mean Lina. Crystal and her are one of the very few solid lores around, however, even these bare remarkable cracks at times.

      I figured slayer was the leftover title from D1 with the anime roots, which makes it near meaningless I feel :/. Was asking becuase I figured I may have to either ignore the title, or give reason/definition to be a Slayer. Riki and BH did things to be called assassins, not wake up one morning and simply proclaim it.

      Awesome! I aim to please and be original. While of course all wont be canon, it won't be off the wall impossibru x'D!

          I believe he's trying to figure out what is Lina's title for the new game. And if it really is Slayer, what is the justification for it? Anyone can point at the lore and say 'Slayer' is right there, but why did she get that title? The lore doesn't tell us. Unless they add something, it might as well just be a placeholder.

          I will mercilessly add to my ignore list anyone that makes an incredibly annoying signature.

            THIS! Thanks Hovering, you articulated it much better than I xD. Although I think he's tripped out by our civility and/or brash use of emotes ^u^

              Well I did some digging for you. Lina is never referred to by her old Dota 1 title in Dota 2, nor is her old last name (Inverse) brought up either. Both of these things have been ditched and it's both easy to understand and hard to understand. While Lina is her own character and not one inspired by an anime this time around, she still has the ult name of Laguna Blade, which of course also came from anime. But to answer your question, the reason for her title is essentially gone, but if I had to pick something, she slays stuff.


              And welcome to the Lore Thread, pleased to meet you.

                        And welcome to the Lore Thread, pleased to meet you.
                        Thank you very much! I hope to stay. Really really really wanted to write a riot for Riot Games, but lore is on the dive there. Also, after reading Vel'koz's lore....and seeing the date was NOT April 1st, my hopes of lore coming back have been dashed.

                        It makes more since to grow DOTAs lore, rather than fight a tug of war with Kitae and Riot over RESTORING the lore :/.

                        Tyvm for the digs too! Much appreciated, very astute! Slays stuff huh? Well, last night, I came up with a plotline im quite proud of i must say! Adding soon!

                        Oh dear :<! Well, as you say, he hasnt been on in some time. And now that I think about the name, no shockers to be expected x'D. Is the other pony guy, 1337, the same :x?

                          1337 noob is fine and dandy. Hell if you wanna learn more about Dota 2 lore, the Lore Megathread 1337 runs is the most ideal resource you can use, IMO.

                            Ah yes! Indeed I have been as well =D! Practically camping there in my free time. I wrote up the story for Lina's

                            [OT UPDATE] 'Slayer' title. Also, the story blurb I was doing for Linas Slayer history turned into a short story Q_Q! I think it makes sense, and even adds a few....surprises. Well, I guess its a surprise, meh, you all be the judge. SHould be up on the 23 at the LATEST!
                            PS: 1st post updated too.
