    Can someone update the original post with the minimap icons in place of the full portraits? like it was previously.

    example:

    Legends say that Sun Wukong is connected to the (four?) celestial spirits, Dark Reef escapees (including Slark, who led the breakout). Once beaten up Razor in the Narrow Maze.

    I find DoTA lore to be very interesting, but also very hard to get into. I see various videos on very specific aspects of the lore, but nothing going over the general overarching ideas beyond the stuff everyone knows (Mad moon, Radiant, Dire, etc.).

    found an interesting thing. looks like abaddon connected with juggernaut and phantom assassin somehow.
    they are waiting for him at the entrance to his castle(?) when he was returning from an evening walk.

    You should really update this thread, arc warden made things interesting and it would be cool to see what you think about him.

    The bouncer in the new Zeus/Arc Warden comic seems to be whatever species Brewmaster's none-celestial half is.

    Wondering something about the Mad Moon! Was its implosion big enough to shatter it all, or would it still orbit the skies of the planet, destroyed like this?

    and i also have a question: is there any record which realm bounty is talking about when he dies? (http://hydra-media.cursecdn.com/dota...t_death_09.mp3)
    good point there. this should be mentioned in the original post.
