    Re: Starcraft reboot ideas discussion thread

    So I published a prospectus collecting my ideas to google docs: https://docs.google.com/document/d/e/2PACX-1vTaKOc58_Qi1TRUGW5CU_qspWf9t-qHp76KQyy0RMR2aKT4XRGGXOqlkI9f_eWsYjlDbTO4vR2XW0lo/pub

    Re: Stalker Lore Question

    The only reason why I wanted to have corpses was so that I could justify protoss tombs and the ihanrii death cult's reanimated corpses piloting dragoons. Otherwise they aren't important.

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

    Blizzard killed off both Kerry and Amon for good. I would appreciate it if we could all get past that and move on to other things. I for one would like to discuss reboot proposals where they never...

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

    I believe it stems from the protagonists in SC2 acting like bipolar sociopaths. People who think critically about the story found them repulsive.


    I find it extremely frustrating that Blizzard...

    Re: Stalker Lore Question

    I noticed that the ihanrii and golden age skins suggest that almost all protoss units existed in the distant past. Itís a clear contradiction but this is Blizzard.

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

    The canon isnít consistent about protoss religion. The protoss have a saying ďthe gods watch over you.Ē

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

    Re: Stalker Lore Question

    The stalker doesnít do that. Its creation involves removing the pilotís soul (ďshadow essenceĒ) 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 xelínaga, 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...

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

    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.

    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...

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

    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...

    I suppose you are right. Iím 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 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,...
