    Re: Stalker Lore Question

    Taldarim with magic runes that repel heretics, mechs piloted by reanimated corpses, void crystals bound to every child at birth then forged into a weapon, knowledge of xel’naga tech lost by everyone...

    Re: What if SC1/BW was remade as DLC for SC2?

    The canon isn’t consistent about protoss religion. The protoss have a saying “the gods watch over you.”

    Have you calculated the protoss timeline? I did and it turns that a protoss generation is...

    Re: Stalker Lore Question

    The stalker doesn’t do that. Its creation involves removing the pilot’s soul (“shadow essence”) and putting it in a robot. Somehow.

    I had some ideas for making them distinct in my AU.

    Re: What if SC1/BW was remade as DLC for SC2?

    Their background is the same as the taldarim with a few cosmetic tweaks. They use void instead of khala, worship xel’naga, etc.

    The taldarim and ihanrii are ultimately rip-offs of the nerazim....

    Re: What if SC1/BW was remade as DLC for SC2?

    Yes. Other authors already salvaged the canon plot outline and I still found it uninteresting.

    Furthermore, Blizzard is going to keep retconning themselves into oblivion. Just yesterday they...

    Re: Stalker Lore Question

    The newly introduced ihan-rii immortal variant is literally a corpse in a sarcophagus with guns mounted on.

    I always thought the protoss dragoon and its variants did not make all that much sense....

    Re: What if SC1/BW was remade as DLC for SC2?

    That sort of attitude will not get you very far in the literary world. The literary world universally agrees that any amount of deus ex machina is bad because it removes all tension from the story...

    Re: What if SC1/BW was remade as DLC for SC2?

    That doesn't happen to every writer and when it does it is a result of sloppiness.

    Starcraft is low hanging fruit, so you can't use it as a standard.

    I made a thread for discussing an original universe a while ago. I'm still open to discussing it.

    Re: What if SC1/BW was remade as DLC for SC2?

    Deus ex machina is a classic example of bad writing.

    I said plenty of times that the writing of SC1 and BW wasn't great because Metzen was clearly making it up as he went along. Rebel Yell had the...

    Re: Starcraft reboot ideas discussion thread

    So I've been doing a bit more thinking about reboots. I've gone through tons of ideas.

    Currently I'm entertaining the idea of introducing the Union as an opposing power block to the Confederacy....

    Re: What if SC1/BW was remade as DLC for SC2?

    I agree. However, I think what you mean isn't so much less fantasy as more grounding and rationality in the world building. Whether you call them psychic powers, they're still magic and the...

    Re: What if SC1/BW was remade as DLC for SC2?

    I suppose you are right. I’m way more interested in writing an original universe with the Confederacy and the Union recycled in space fighting space elves and space bugs.

    Re: What if SC1/BW was remade as DLC for SC2?

    I’ll humor you. I’m writing a fanfic where xel’naga space magic creates a new protoss galactic empire and clones a bazillion overminds. They fight the UED for domination of the universe.

    Re: What if SC1/BW was remade as DLC for SC2?

    I don't like the story of SC1 all that much, either. It feels extremely rushed and squanders its potential, IMO.

    I would've preferred something like the Fall of Tarsonis happening at the start,...

    I'm not invested in it either. My other ideas included the UED being involved from the start, using the Heroes of the Storm version of their history where they invaded to put down Koprulu's...

    A critique I got of my proposal is that it isn’t detailed enough and that this vagueness will lead to retcons down the line. The problem is that this is an intentional choice. I was told elsewhere...

    Re: Starcraft reboot ideas discussion thread

    If I want to be specific, then I would guesstimate that Koprulu sector is a cube with dimensions of 200 ly each. That gives an average of 32k stars within the sector.

    The Orion Arm sector(s) is...

    The google doc I plugged addresses points like these.

    See, Kopulu system and Koprulu sector are now two different things (to resolve the contradictions between SC1 and SC2). The SC1 Tarsonis...

    The idea I was going for was that the devastation of capital worlds like Tarsonis, the twist of episode 1 in canon, is what kicked off the status quo instead. Not all of the worlds, but sufficient to...

    Totally agree. Not just dark and gritty, but deep and analytical. There is literary value in that.

    There's no single way to answer that. There are countless different stories that one could tell to serve as an introduction to the setting.

    StarCraft: Insurrection is one example. It touches upon...

    I think there was a misunderstanding somewhere. I don't envision there being a main story campaign. Stories about individual planets, sure, but not about the entire sector. That's too huge to ever do...
