    Re: Random Thoughts Thread

    I'm delving into the whole Thanatos Drive thing right now. Maybe the protoss' abandonment by the Xel'Naga scarred them on a profound level, leaving lasting damage in their racial memory. This would...

    Re: Random Thoughts Thread

    When confronted with the full power of the Void, Dark Templar seem be drawn to it like moths to a flame. I can only assume it has some Nirvana-like allure; not in the prosaic, western understanding...

    Re: Random Thoughts Thread

    I think the short story Lense of the Void explores those consequences, Rag.

    *points to Tal'Darim*

    Although perhaps Terrazine somehow helps Tal'Darim focus their void energies more clearly. I also have a pet theory that most Tal'Darim are young; older members are either...
  5. Re: Lets discuss Enumerate? (tl;dr AU w/o Kerry, UED, Duran; Zera dies, Tass lives)

    I'm just imagining how much carbon and sulfur is constantly being thrown into the air by the ongoing activity of the planet.


    The video I linked above showed the player waltzing into terran...
  6. Re: Lets discuss Enumerate? (tl;dr AU w/o Kerry, UED, Duran; Zera dies, Tass lives)

    On the one hand, Duke is totally throwing his weight around. "You are in violation of terran airspace." Really? I'm sorry, but you and the sad remnants of your raggedy-ass detachment are stuck on the...

    Re: Random Thoughts Thread

    So did Amon control the Swarm considering the Overmind and the celebrates use the Void? And if Amon couldn't control Dark Templar, then why were they always so cautious of using the Void to its...

    Re: Random Thoughts Thread

    I've always wondered about that.

    Though they use the Void, the Dark Templar have only used it sparingly and obliquely. Is there some innate danger in the Void's use? Or has it always been Amon's...
  9. Re: Lets discuss Enumerate? (tl;dr AU w/o Kerry, UED, Duran; Zera dies, Tass lives)

    Duke kicks off contact with Tassadar's fleet with a threat, to which Tassadar responds in kind. Due to the set up of the map, however, you are not forced to actually combat his Alpha squadron, which...
  10. Re: Lets discuss Enumerate? (tl;dr AU w/o Kerry, UED, Duran; Zera dies, Tass lives)

    It doesn't help that, in the deleted mission Biting The Bullet, Tassadar worked alongside and saved much of the Sons of Korhal. For Duke to then turn around and attack Tassadar would be especially...
  11. Re: Lets discuss Enumerate? (tl;dr AU w/o Kerry, UED, Duran; Zera dies, Tass lives)

    I also saw it as Tassadar forming a massive Archon with the Gantrithor's mass, and plunging it straight into the Overmind.
  12. Re: Lets discuss Enumerate? (tl;dr AU w/o Kerry, UED, Duran; Zera dies, Tass lives)

    Sorry, I think I was subconsciously considering his murder of Raszagal too. I just always figured Zeratul would have been met with more blow back.
  13. Re: Lets discuss Enumerate? (tl;dr AU w/o Kerry, UED, Duran; Zera dies, Tass lives)

    I'm not sure I like Zeratul and Tassadar trading places. Tassadar's character arc is closed out in The Fall pretty satisfactorily. I also feel that Zeratul should have felt more blowback from his...

    Re: Random Thoughts Thread

    I can only assume that for Kerrigan to believe Duran was mind controlled and infested, he would somehow have to let her peer through his eyes, be privy to his every thought, and physically infect his...

    Re: Random Thoughts Thread

    Protoss acquire osteoderms and scutes across their face as they age, which is their equivalent of a beard. Hence the Egyptian-inspired chin caps.

  17. Re: Brood War wasn't great, here's why, we deserve better, here's how

    That seems like an interesting perspective on the Overmind and the Hivemind in general. I think what else would have been interesting is if the cerebrates did wind up creating an entirely new...

    Re: Visions of VoK

    It just came to my attention that a Youtube user, RighteousNicky, has been using my artwork for his video thumbs. I'm not angry, but I'm not thrilled, either. Still, it's nice to know someone likes...
  19. Re: Brood War wasn't great, here's why, we deserve better, here's how

    ... Which runs counter to another section in the manual, describing the Overmind being protected by the Tiamet brood, implying a body needing protection.

    Perhaps the Overmind's bodies are more...
  20. Re: Brood War wasn't great, here's why, we deserve better, here's how

    I'm not sure about the Field Manual, but Stetmann's notes on khaydarin crystals states this outright. With the power at the protoss' disposal, they should have no problem;



    It may have...
  21. Re: Brood War wasn't great, here's why, we deserve better, here's how

    That would make sense. Destroy a zerg colony, and it's back in, what, a day? Lose the Gantrithor, and lose hundreds of precious protoss lives, plus a monolithic strategic & tactical asset and...
  22. Re: Brood War wasn't great, here's why, we deserve better, here's how

    For the majority of the StarCraft campaigns, the protoss' strategies were fairly practical: Tassadar's fleet had been nuking worlds from orbit. He only deigned to engage the zerg on Tarsonis because...
  23. Re: Brood War wasn't great, here's why, we deserve better, here's how

    Regarding the Protoss strategy; Tassadar fully engaged the zerg at Tarsonis, deploying ground forces to the surface to prevent the extermination of human lives. And this turned into a complete...
  24. Re: Brood War wasn't great, here's why, we deserve better, here's how

    We have conflicting messages regarding Kerrigan's manipulations by Amon; some sources claim she was always free of his will, while others claim she was on some level still swayed by him.
  25. Re: Brood War wasn't great, here's why, we deserve better, here's how

    All this kinda makes me wonder whether the new Overmind would have been bound to Amon's programmed directives like the old Overmind. If not, I'm sure a convenient retcon could be that the tainted...
