  • Skeleton King Lore

    So dumb. A forest of bones? A bad guy intent on collecting bones? Come on

    Do you mind elaborating?

      It just sounds like something a 10 year old would make up. Now don't get me wrong, I love the goofyness of original dota and I am even a little afraid that DOTA2 might lose some of that, but I think SK deserves better. If you're gonna make his story silly, make it really silly. If not, a bloodsucking undying skeleton monster could have a better story I think.

        His lore should be something right off of a metal cd art.
        If you don't listen to some form of rock or metal while playing Skelington King you are doing it wrong

          I like Skeleton King's lore. There was a subtlety to it that I couldn't place when I first read it, but caught onto later. During middle ages-ish times, a King was considered a failure if he didn't expand his realm during his rule. Similarly, Skeleton King must spread his realm, so that he can remain immortal.

          Also he must be a ****ing amazing craftsman he's created a whole forest out of bones over who knows how long, not to mention the fortress. Think of how long he's had to perfect his craft.

              I'm with Sanae here. I actually like SK's lore. It's not just about having everything made of bones, it's about Leoric's need to expand his kingdom to survive. That's the hook, y'see.
