    Default Can anyone tell me where this info is from and if it's canon or not?

    It has some pretty damn cool stuff, but I'm leaning towards non canon status because of some of the outrageously unrealistic stuff.

    Like running at 120 MPH? Wow.

    It could be from the board game or the RPG game, and if it is, its canon, but im not sure where he got that info.

    Edit: Well the 120 mph at least makes sense, the Vulture goes 230 mph and is a scout vehicle, so its not completely outlandish that a Goliath is running 120 mph.

    That's not the only thing. It also has close combat fighting abilities. That, is ridiculous. Jumping 3 meters high? That's also outrageous.

    What? Now thats outlandish.

    Edit: Its fake, reading the Vulture article shows it:

    Non-cannon. It's for an RPG. MDC stands for mega damage capacity, a concept lifted from Rifts.

    I've seen several similar fan-based RPGs developed. They're pretty cool, and some have very interesting backstory for the Protoss and Zerg.

    Be it through hallowed grounds or lands of sorrow
    The Forger's wake is bereft and fallow

    Is the residuum worth the cost of destruction and maiming;
    Or is the shaping a culling and exercise in taming?

    But be wary through what thickets it winds.

    Is it truly from the Starcraft RPG, or is it just used in other fan-made RPG games?

    Look at the legal disclaimers at the bottom. Palladium produced Rifts, and here the author acknowledged them.

    At least, I'm pretty sure this is fan-based.

    EDIT Oh yeah, I remember this site now. Yeah, fan-based. That doesn't make it any less awesome, though. =]

    Well, there you go, non-canon, though the speed still makes some sense for the Goliath, any news on that?

    Can't say, though it seems a bit fast to me. Suppose it had to be fast and maneuverable in an urban setting, though.

    Vultures canonically can go at speeds of 230 mph, so its not completely outlandish.(I think it was brought up in Liberty's crusade.)
