  • On another note, in Magnus description "Now seeks revenge, accompanied by his most sharpest horn." You should say "most sharp" or "sharpest" but not both
    That I know, it's intentional. Mostly to point out the ridiculousness of Magnus' horn fetish as seen in his subtitles; I think this is used from time to time to give additional emphasis to an event or a characteristic. Either that or I'm completely delusional.

    As for the Storm Spirit theory, it's also entirely possible, being a mirrored version of what I suggested myself. Either the people of the Wailing Mountains are bearlike, or it's the Celestials.
    Heroes this user should seriously reconsider ever picking again.

      Maybe Ember Spirit will clear up whats the go with these guys.

      Hopefully.

      • While I was doing a research for a topic about the Planes of Existence, I came across a thought:

        Sven is the son of a man with a Pallid Meranth.

        Mer (anth) is an underwater race.

        Would exist any relationship between Sven and Naga? Those "horns" ...

        • Well, yeah, it seems quite thrilling for a sec, but he either surgically removes those when using any other kind of helmet or they're retractable which doesn't seem quite possible.

          • I always had the idea that Svens standard helmet is just a kind of tribute to his roots with the mer people.

            • Naga Siren is a Sithereen, a different kind of race - or implied, anyway.

              • And now all the new information from items added to the Store is edited in; there's nothing mindblowing, but worth a check as of me. Those who aren't as devoted as we are might as well pass.

                • I always wondered why you put Tiny in as a Golem and not a Giant, btw. I know Golems are made of clay or stone and all, so it could fit, but still... there are so many stories of stone giants (with diamond teeth, etc etc).

                  Comment


                  • I would consider a golem to be man-made and a giant to be natural. Since Tiny doesn't really know what he is, it's hard to correctly label him.

                    Comment


                    • Well, since he is a Stone Giant now and we can't be certain how or from what Tiny developed I'd still label him as giant. ^^'

                      Comment


                      • i believe a golem is "made" and a giant is "born" naturally

                        • I had a interesting idea lately:
                          It says in Shadow Demon's lore that he was killed but recently managed to recombine himself from all the different parts of him that were scattered to the wind. However, it his possible he had an helping hand in that: Warlock has the power to "link" different souls together, so it is not too far fetched that he helped Shadow Demon rebuild himself by linking together the different parts of his soul that were spread around the world, in exchange for arcane knowledge the Demon would be sure to possess, thus partially explaining Warlock's extensive arcanery on Demon in addition to human magic.
                          Everyone has a story.

                          • ^ We have a German saying that goes like this "An den Haaren herbeigezogen", which basically means something is really farfetched. Because of that I'd say: This has to be true. Let it be true. It's too cool to not be true. Very nice find, I like that idea a lot (although SD relying on a human to regain power is a bit weird).

                            • Medusa got her voicelines in this update, and while it's still a step away from her actual lore, she does mention some things surrounding her situations. She ssems to be trying to return to her Gorgon sisters, and she recognizes Zeus:
                              "medusa_medus_levelup_04" "medusa: It won't be long now, sisters."
                              "medusa_medus_rare_04" "medusa: Gorgons, sisters, forgive my infirmity. I grow stronger day by day, and I will come for you."
                              "medusa_medus_rare_06" "medusa: Never come between a Gorgon and her sisters. I will turn your blood and bone to stone, and shatter you into a thousand remorseful shards."

                              "medusa_medus_rival_19" "medusa: Mortality suits you, Zeus."
                              "medusa_medus_rival_20" "medusa: What a failure of a god."
                              "medusa_medus_rival_21" "medusa: Tell your brothers I said hello."
                              "medusa_medus_rival_22" "medusa: Oh, Zeus."
                              "medusa_medus_ally_11" "medusa: You're here too, Zeus?"
                              "medusa_medus_ally_12" "medusa: Zeus on the loose!"
                              "medusa_medus_ally_13" "medusa: Zeus! You here already?"
                              "medusa_medus_ally_14" "medusa: I should have known you'd be here, Zeus."

                              • She seems to be very similar to the Medusa of Greek myth. Ugly sisters and everything.

                                Not sure if I like it.
