    You know that Oracle's lore has been leaked?

    I doubt it, there's little resemblance.

    Or maybe there's different Keen origins with different features, just like it is for humans, Oglodi or Trolls.

    Well, here's a crackpot theory for you - maybe Keens are dimunitive Troll/Oglodi mutants? Neither species seems to like them very much, and they do seem to be stubborn, slightly obnoxious, and tech-savvy...

    Nilbog the Courier is explicitly stated to be a Keen, and he looks like Timbersaw in that he looks like a pink Techie.

    It's possible that Keen interbred with Trolls at some point in the distant past, and as a result a recessive trait causes some Keen to come out looking like tiny trolls. It's also possible that the Keen came from Trolls mating with something else, and THAT species became the dominant phenotype. With the benefit of hindsight, we can see that Alchemist is somewhere in the middle between being Trollish and being Keenish.

    I'm considering that myself now, but my new, previously unmentioned rule of only updating the thread on big event days prevents me from doing anything about it. I have until the next Frostivus (or, well, maybe earlier) to consider.

    I still say the Techies are trolls.
    Given the enormous body similarities and penchant for extremely hyperbolic intellect (that is to say, they're good at one thing, and do it harder than anyone else, similarly to the Warlord's penchant for... well, killing) I'd say it's worth a mention.

    Though I've probably mentioned this to you enough times, haven't I?

    And I shall continue to do so until a more interesting unconfirmed theory drifts into my expansive mind.

    Dear me.

    The Techies don't have an awful lot on them - you can just read through the first two posts, it's all there. The remaining pages are auxiliary. It's just race speculation, the cities mentioned in their backstory, and tid.

    And if I knew when heroes are to be added next, I would be an Oracle indeed. I'd aim for November, though.

    Hello to all
    I am new member of this site.
    Thx the author for his job
    But i have 1 question?(I didnt reed all 150 pages so sorry if the question was later)
    Is there any information about the Techis and Will you add info. about other heroes when they will be added in Dota 2?

    Hm. Someone must have posted this somewhere.

    I am not going to highlight new additions, if only because I know myself all too much - they will hang on as "new" for months should I forget about them. Which I will. If anything, I have added the information from the TI4 items and fixed a few things that have been outdated for a while now, so you can look for those in particular.

    In other news, I will restructure the opening post once the big update hits the deck. No big content changes, but the order in which sections go is going to be changed. It's always boggled me how it starts with ancient heroes for some reason. Especially now that 1/4 of them are ancient in one way or another. Ancients may as well be defending the Ancients at this point.

    Abaddon's... peculiar mouth is mentioned briefly. The only things it outright proves are that the Font does things to you and that he is now ugly. There is a theory that this shape is required in order to create Mist Coils, but it is rather superficial.
    P.S. And seeing how I am pretty sure where this was posted, here's a small disclaimer: yes, I'm banned, and I'm banned for good reason, and never do I intend to return. I can't stand that place anymore, and I'm glad to have been put out of its prolonged, decadent misery. Oh, and regarding the D2P thing, I was the one who left first. And boy did I have a reason. But that's a story for another time.

    "Follows words from the tome of Tael'Am, a rather violent and one-directional book."

    Andy-Mage fan of Harry Styles, confirmed.
