  • Abbadon lore attempt

    As techies is already covered I said to myself to try and write a lore for a hero I don't particularly like to play so here goes...

    The Lore:


    The grim omen,the Harvester,the Black Wanderer,Abbadon.The names of legends used to scare children,wives and even nations.They speak of a relentless entity that appears where conflict is at its thickest to indiscriminately end all life.A terrifing face placed on death through myths and legends.But the grand library of Emauracus holds a different story,a tragic tale of older times.The tale of a namelss man of legendary conviction who took arms against the Order of Omniscience.

    The tale begins with a simple servant,a young man who served at the court of an unnamed king in a small country near Elze.As days went by he became helplessly in love with the king's only daughter,spending all his days hoping for but a glimpse of her lovely figure.However all that changed when he accidentally witnessed a deal between the king and Fro'smorne, a soul collector demon in service of Lucifer.The trade would be simple:the soul of the princess for the king's renewed youth.Mortified the man rushed to the princess's chamber only to find the demon grinning satisfied near the corpse of the young woman.Blinded by rage the servant is said to have clawed his way through the demon's flesh all the way to the heart,ending the life of the soul collector.What happened after is open to speculation
    ,suffice to say the man lost his arm and gained a twisted blade of flesh.

    Years entrusted this incident to fable ,until one day a man with a curious blade asked the the priests of the Order of Omniscience for an audience with their god.They denied him firmly,but soon discovered that they could not stop him.
    He killed his way to the All Seeing One,and it is said that with every priest he killed a small part of their protective essence fused with the man.Nobody knows what happened between the Omniscient God and the blood covered fighter,but the few surviving
    priests recall a figure exiting the god's sanctuary whose fingers bore the mark of life and death and whose will manifested as a shield.Perhaps a blessing from a god,or a gift from the hundreds of dead priests.

    As centuries went on tales of a similar man were collected in the library of Emauracus and labeled as myths.Yet they all depict a similar picture:a strange traveller fights his way to different hells and heavens,to different planes and worlds in search for something unknown. He is said to be present where death occures and that he follows the spirits to their resting place no matter the obstacles.Some stories say he is a hero,a man who descends into hell to find the spirit of his lost love and who manages to steal Lucifer's favorite hell steed in the process.
    Some stories find him as a power hungry lunatic,that killed half the denizens of Claszureme and stole the powers of time itself to further his selfish goals.Some say he is a dammed soul,who lost his humanity and reason,becoming more a force of nature all for the sake of a young girl..

    But the manuscripts within the grand library of Emauracus assures us that these are all just myths as no such agent of destruction,no such Abbadon can exist.

    Notes:
    -the name of the blade can be given by the name of the dead demon,we can't use Frostmorn due to copyright,that can be changed (I personally would call it Nameless Blade or sm).
    -I always like the idea of blade as a hand for this guy so that is why i chose to do it like that(i can expand the lore to give the blade more depth and personality)
    -I would rather have abbadon without a horse but figured that fans will rage so i included that in the lore
    -criticism is welcome,will prob add lines for him if you guys like it/i have time(stupid finals are here..)

    Two things:
    1) We're trolling vladhood big time right now.
    2) You're supposed to put spaces after commas and dots.


    Aside from that, I should say that there is hardly any need for so many tie-ins with other hero lores. I've counted four myself, and literally all of them can easily be left out for a much better experience on a somewhat decent story. An other complaint would be that it's really huge and should probably be shortened - and that the blade reeeealllllyyyy needs a different name. Just stick with the Nameless Blade for now.

    The last but not the least, don't forget to report to the Fan Lore Central.



    I won't be the first person to post an Abbadon fan lore anymore.
