  • The Lore of Dota 2

    Hi guys im "reworking" the dota 2 lore. Doing maps also. The reason why i do this i because i feel like the world of dota has some great stories to tell - great battles. I hope you enjoy it as much as i do. I could use some feedback on this projekt

    Link to blog

    Heres what i've come up with so far:
    The creation:
    In the beginning there was no trees, rivers, valleys, folks, or even time. A small gathering of spirits was present and talked to each other. Not in the tongue that spoken by the keen folk, the Slithereens, or even the Sovereign Demons. But speakting in a tongue long forgotten, as it was told by the eldars of this world.

    There was four of them. The spirit of water, Cancolos, the kindest of all. All the was good and clean came from her. The spirit of earth, Tauran, had fate in its hands. Shaping the fate of everyone in the world and even shaping the world itself. The Spirit of air, Libralos, was the wisest of all, and gave the creatures in the world knowledge and the power of thoughts. The spirit of fire, Ariol, he brought wildness and cowardliness into this world. Last of the spirits was the spirit of things beyond and heavenly constellations, Aethos.

    The five of them was gathered and spoke of the things to come. Of a world their conversations often wandered to. A world where the five elements create beings of their will.

    And so it was that the world was created, the spirits gave it the name of Gaia. And in Gaia there was four realms, Melenar, Razhul, Gonfel, and Para.

    Aethos saw the creations of the other spirits and was drawn by the beauty of the creations, and grew jealous. He created the heavenly realm of Claszureme, and filled it with his hate and terror of Gaia.

    The story of the people of guntul and kardel sharpeye
    Kardel Sharpeye

    (1. age of Gultul)

    Guntul The first

    The People of Guntul was lot living like the Keen Folk in the realm of Melenar, but were to find deep in the mountains of Bhelzedur north of the mythical land of Razhul. Mining the deep for gems, iron and other metals. Trading it with the folk living in Razhul is what made the dwarfs rich beyond compare.

    The wealth of the dwarfs came from their master miner Gathril Midas. Gems and valuable stone all came from the quarters of the master miner, where he was next side the king. For the king had always his eyes on his treasure.

    The people of Guntul had to escape their home in the deep mountains of Bhelzedur north east of the Mer, they had awoken a great evil which only goal was to serve the Eldar of Fire. A great number of dwarfs were killed in this battle against the great evil, even the king Anûin Bhelzedur was slain. They boarded weak ships and sailed with no goal – no king.

    Aboard the Ships Guntul took Charge and led the dwarfs to new shores, and brought a new found hope into the wrecked ships. They sailed for 30 days and as many nights before they reached the Shore of Bahral or The Sands of Pain, as it was later named by the people of Guntul.

    Guntul was the first dwarf to embark the Kingdom of Elze only to be met by fire from the people who lived there. The war lasted 150 years and thousands upon thousands of dwarfs died.

    Guntal son of Guntul

    Moved the people of Guntul to the mountains of Knollen. Here they settled for a while only to find that even nature were against them. The beast who roamed the steep cliffs was to high to kill with sword or axe, and the dwarfs starved for a long while, and lived of the wild plants in the aera.

    (2. age of Guntul)

    Thallak Gunbearer

    The people of Guntul was greeted in the fallen city of knollen by the Shopkeeper. His bird had learned the news of the people of Guntul, and brought the news to his master. The Shopkeeper offered the dwarfs guns to hunt the beast for meat.

    The first dwarf to ever shoot a gun was Thallak son of Guntal. Thallak was an excellent marksman and shot his gun, Isih, with deadly precision.

    Guntal II Beastkiller

    Even more deadly that the first gun-bearer, Thallak, was Guntal II Beastkiller. It is said that Thallak was the dwarf who invented the great test of the people of Guntal and that he killed more beasts than anyone and have not wasted a single bullet in the hunt for food.

    The test Gultal invented is a skills shot-test, where the gun-bearer is to shoot a prey of his liking with a single bullet.

    In a dream it came to Guntal, the dark prophecy of which the hunter will forever roaming the Wasted lands and the Mountains of Knollen in the search for the perfect shot. The prophecy will only come true if the prey where shot in its eye, and the eye falls too the preys mandibles.

    (3. age of Guntul)

    Kartul Hawkeye, son of Guntal II Beastkiller

    Kartul Hawkeye, Kardels farther, was a simple dwarf by all means. (more to come)

    Kardel Sharpeye, son of Kartul

    Kardel Sharpeye was born deep in the mountainous valleys of Knollen where, since the time of Guntal son of Guntul, the folk have survived by hunting the strange, cliff-dwelling steepstalkers above their village—killing them from a distance and collecting their carcasses where they fell. Sharpeye was among the best of these strange folk for whom projectile weapons are but another appendage, and to shoot is as natural as to touch.
    On his day of summoning, when he was to gain full standing in his village, Sharpeye took the ancient test: a single shot from the valley floor to strike a beast down from the cliffs. To miss was to be dishonored. With his entire village standing vigil, Sharpeye took his shot. A steepstalker fell; the crowd cheered. But when the carcass was collected, the village grew silent, for the elders found that the bullet had pierced its glittering central eye then fallen to be clenched in the steepstalker’s mandibles. This ominous sign was the literal opening of a dark prophecy, foretelling both greatness and exile for the gunman who made such a shot. Sharpeye the Sniper was thus, by his own skill, condemned to make his way apart from his people—and unwelcome back among them until he has fulfilled the remainder of the prophecy by attaining legendary stature on a field of battle.
