    Re: Stalker Lore Question

    I wonder about that. It's stated that Terrazine is a gas that comes from the Void, so I'd think its composition would be homogenous regardless of its origins. Of course, it could have some...

    Re: Stalker Lore Question

    Potentially. Also keep in mind the Chain of Ascension, which would retroactively explain Nyon's force's continued loyalty to him. These Tal'Darim may have even been "exiled" from the main body,...

    Re: Stalker Lore Question

    Dude, we were given the "reason": Alarak stated that Nyon had gone insane from harvesting terrazine. The writers didn't consider from the outset the overarching story where the Tal'Darim were...

    I mean, Misla's probably right in this instance. The Tal'Darim of WoL act against the wishes of Narud in WoL, then are suddenly his servants in HotS, and are completely transformed in LotV into...

    Re: Stalker Lore Question

    Alarak explained it (read: retconned) that Executor Nyon and his forces were sent to harvest terrazine, and were driven insane by it. So apparently they cut ties with the main Tal'darim body and went...

    Re: Stalker Lore Question

    From what I've been able to gather, the protoss have an empathic, communal link that exists at an instinctual level; it's probably an autonomic process. Amon wanted to use this as his means of...

    Re: Stalker Lore Question

    A brief digression from the current discussion, but I totally forgot about the high detail mission screen depicting Zeratul with a pair of stalkers. Considering the metal and proportions (their heads...

    Re: Stalker Lore Question

    Zeratul's death isn't entirely unique. The one other disintegration-in-death I know of was Ma'lash's death at the hands out Alarak. Perhaps having their bodies infused with so much corrupted void...

    Re: Stalker Lore Question

    We're discussing it because the opening cinematic depicts a zealot's body collapsing to the ground while blue energy erupts from his body. You can see the zealot fall to his knees and slump to the...

    Re: Stalker Lore Question

    Actually, Sandwich, I really like that idea. It would explain why Lasarra died a bloody death, but Templar combust. If there is a physiological component to psionics, it could be a response to...

    Re: Stalker Lore Question

    The only thing I can think of is a parallel with the God Emperor of 40K. Though his body is dead, his mentality and psychic power are confined to his body by the Golden Throne. Perhaps the Ihan Rii...

    My condolences, Rag. Take care of yourself first and foremost, otherwise you'll wear yourself so thin you won't be of use to anyone else. You come first.
  15. Re: What if SC1/BW was remade as DLC for SC2?

    I'm not terribly fond of these Ihan Rii. They infringe on the Dark Templar's role as void walkers who sometimes utilize Xel'Naga artifacts. But this seems to be Blizzard's MO when conceiving new...

    Re: Stalker Lore Question

    What? So you'll have to elaborate on this one.

    And did they forget that "Ihan Rii" was one of the names addressed to the Xel'Naga, and not a Protoss faction? Or does that mean this cult faction...

    Re: Stalker Lore Question

    Well it's clear dragoons embody dreads. In play style, protoss are more akin to Astartes, though they retain the Eldar aesthetic. I guess that makes dark templar thematically equivalent to Exodites. ...

    Re: Stalker Lore Question

    Dragoons are clearly an expy of dreadnoughts from WarHammer 40K, which have a difficult time integrating into society themselves, as revered as they are. Stalkers, on the other hand, are just protoss...

    From what I'm reading, it seems dragoons have a difficult time integrating themselves into society after their transplantation. I'm guessing the dark templar, being individualistic, would place some...

    Stalker Lore Question

    So the lore would seem to imply that a Stalker shell is possessed by the spirit of a dead dark templar. However, the portrait clearly shows a living, breathing protoss head tacked onto the chassis. ...
