  • Fan lores list

    The lore thread is home to many conversations, but also to a now impressive amount of fan lores for upcoming released heroes. So, to keep track of the lores out here so far, I've made a list of all the recent ones, I'm going to add the rest as I dig a little bit or as people refer me to them.

    Ideas concerning Zet and Auroth

    Other stories

    Enchantress horror story by Puppeteer: I'll tell you a terrible tale, of an Enchantress bringing death and misery to jungle creeps.


    I thought putting a quick summary/intro would be a good idea, but they're definitely open for change. Also, I only put the lores of unreleased heroes so far.

    +1 Extremely useful. Should be put to sticky. After all, you and a few other guys basically run this sub forum.

        Well, if I am to be asked, this thread is perhaps amongst the most important in this forum. That is, implying that in the future, instead of posting separate threads for their own creations which are sadly not prohibited in here, authors would rather use this thread instead - thus sparing us some space in this forum so that it would become readable again.

        By the way, that's just a suggestion and the 777th post of mine, hooray.
        Heroes this user should seriously reconsider ever picking again.

        THE DOTA 2 LORE MEGATHREAD IS TO BE UPDATED BY JULY 5TH

        Visit the Dota 2 Lore Megathread. Renovation ongoing.

          The idea of making one big "fanlore" thread were we can post the stories is pretty good, in my opinion. Maybe we should move them all together in this one and just edit the original posts links to the posts in this very thread. That needs a moderator and some work, though.

            Don't test us, boy.

            That put aside, good idea, this thread would make the sub-forum way easier to navigate. Btw, Balance should be capitalized.

              I changed the theme off my Pit Lord Lore, please change the description to reflect this.

                Well, in fact, the original plan was the listing to be a temporary situation, and as new lores showed up from now on, that they would actually be placed here, instead of creating their own separate threads. This might not be deemed practical, but it would help a great deal to encumber less the rest of this sub-forum, as even though I quite enjoy the fan lores, they now take at least half the space. So, this is why I'm putting this lore for Tresdin the Legion Commander here, instead of creating a new separate thread. This stance may change afterwards.

                Tresdin the Legion Commander fan lore

                The land of Naquilo, with its immense riches, was beset by looters and invasions throughout the ages. Kingdoms and dynasties came and went, some human, others not. However, in recent years, few dared breach the country’s borders, for those that did had to face the wrath of Lord Tresdin’s army. His presence in battle was felt by allies and enemies alike when he cleaved with his sons through the enemy ranks, and he was acclaimed as the greatest general of his time. However, the king of Naquilo, fearing that his general’s glory would surpass his own, and lead a rebellion of his human subjects, commanded him to join the court along with the other feudal lords.

                So it was that Tresdin was made to attend bals and banquets, while his army and family battled in his stead. As the months went by, Tresdin’s absence was felt as other empires grew bolder. The general, however, obeyed the king’s orders, until he heard that the neighboring King Goff was massing a terrible army, his own forces combined with a frightful mercenary group led by the warlord Hsiang. After such news, no one could stop the general’s ride to battle, not the king’s frantic orders, nor the guards foolish enough to bar his way.

                But he arrived far too late, as his once proud army was scattered, and his sons lay dead at his feet. Consumed by rage, Tresdin rode to Hsiang’s mercenary camp. As the shadows were growing long, and as the mercenaries reveled in their victory, the Commander rode in, rage and hatred guiding his sword. Dozens fell before him, until he bellowed a challenge to Hsiang himself. The monstrous beast known as Hsiang came forth, and the two became locked in combat, the great human general against the terrible creature. But when the sun rose, the abomination lay dead, and Tresdin was proclaimed leader of the mercenary Legion. With his new comrades, he rallied the human population of Naquilo and put the royal satyr family of Tahlin to the sword. After restoring a human dominion, he travels with his Legion across the lands, killing all dire beasts in his wake.

                  For some reason I'm not very fond of the idea of Tresdin turning racist instead of being so from the beginning. Aside from that, my only complaint would be that there is some redundancy (recently-recent; Hsiang is mentioned by his name a tad bit too many times) and that after him being the man standing behind the massacre of Tahlin, it would make sense if there'd be a little list of what he did later on - not just traveling with his Legion which is never seen and killing dire beasts, but something else could be useful.

                  Actually, I'm honestly thinking of gathering all the authors in here for them to repost their lores in this single thread. Those who have already done that can just edit the posts.



                  And, looking at how I have managed to put a long, a huge long list in but one post, it may be possible for you to edit all of them into the OP. Instead of links.

                    Imo the list of links was better.Centralistion is good for forums,but feedback would be a pain to read,organize,and reply to.Also the it would hide the "how much ppl like this particular lore" individually.

                      Well I have mixed feelings on it right now, though in it's current state it's supposed to lessen the number of threads, it does kind of look like a wall of text. I still have the old version saved, so I'll be waiting for input on this one.

                        I think a new topic would be better where every story gets its own post and the thread starting post is like an index for the whole thread

                        Just replace the current links to each thread to the posts in the new thread.

                        Thoughts?

                            Well, we didn't have one post for each lore yet and that's what I'm suggesting. :P

                              I think i'm misunderstanding,but each lore has it's own original post. (expt he legion com that was posted directly here).This thread was originally functioning as a list(links) to those posts, and afterwards he edited the OP with the whole lores.
