  • Meepo [Valve lore]

    Got this from Reddit, apparently Valve accidentally posted Meepo's model to the Workshop for download, along with his lore. They're removed now. I don't know if this is the final product, but here you go.

    "If you ask me, life is about who you know and what you can find. When you live up in the Riftshadow Ruins, just finding food can be tough. So you need to cut corners, you need to scrounge, you need to know your strengths. Some of the beasts up there can kill you, so you need a way to trap the weak and duck the strong. On the upside, the ruins have history, and history is worth a lot to some people. There used to be a palace there, where they had all these dark rituals. Bad stuff. If you survived the ceremony, they would shatter a crystal and split your soul into pieces. They made great art though! Sculptures and such. Let me tell you: sometimes you stumble onto some of those old carvings. Take a pack full of those to town and sell them, and you got yourself food for a few weeks. If luck really is on your side, you might find a Riftshadow crystal. Get it appraised and start asking around. Someone always knows some crazy fool looking for this kind of thing. If all else fails, sell it to a Magus next time one's in town. They love that stuff! Still, whatever you do, be careful handling those crystals. You do not want one to go off on you. It really hurts."

    Immediate emergencial lore changing in 3..2..1..
    The history is cool, but isn't all that I was expecting. Well, what can I expect of a lower creature as meepo?

          Something tells me that it's really not the final version. The style is different, as noted above, it doesn't explain who the hell Meepo really is, and why there are five of him, and the only thing that really hints at this being not fake is the Magus part - one of Meepo's ally lines has him advertising his crystals to Rubick, the Grand Magus.

              Crystals that split your soul into pieces?

              Think we've found out reason for Meepo's ulti at least.

                I think the last part of the lore somewhat confirmed that Meepo was hit by one of the crystal. Lol, he knows how hurt it is to warn other people.

                  Why did I imagine this in the narrator from Bastion's voice?

                    I like that unique survivor story style to it, it may not be Dota 2-ish, but it is great. Will propably be changed

                      I like the first person narrative, going from his lore (even if it's WIP) and his responses I like the way Valve is handling Meepo.

                            That guy needs to be a Dota 2 announcer, Insta-Buy if they do it, Supergiant Games said on a reddit post that they would be happy to speak with Valve about it.

                              Being many people in one would help scrounge up artifacts to sell for food all the better.

                              Being many also makes you have to find more of them to feed yourself.

                              Is meepo in a better spot? (Must be considering getting an Aghanim's is a positive thing)

                              For the sake of personal curiosity, do you have a link to that post?
