You guys seem to be having a lot of problems with these tools. (I subscribe to the lore forum and so get an email anytime somebody posts a new thread)
Is there anything we can do to help besides report them?

In regards to Auriel, we don't really know the circumstances of her capture, only that she was. We don't know how many scores of demons attacked her. We do know from the Wrath video though that she does have some capable combat ability.
Also, the scales were tipped heavily in Diablo's favor. Remember, at this point he was the Prime Evil with all seven aspects in his body and basically functioning as a resurrection of Tathamet. Ordinarily I don't think he ought to have been able to even set foot in Heaven.

I guess a lot of the anger and disappointment with the plot is the way certain aspects of the storyline were handled...Cain's death, for example. After all the old fellow's done and been through, he deserved a better ending than he got even if he did realize his time was nearly up.Posted in: Lore & Storyline
Then we have the character responsible for his death. I don't object to Maghda's presence in the storyline, just the way she was designed. As many have said, she looked like a rejected Disney character. Awful, awful, awful...and the wrong kind of awful to boot.
And Tyrael is another story. I think the monumental decision to renounce his heavenly authority to help the nephalem is awesome, but his behavior at the end of the story still has me confused. He declares himself Wisdom, ascends in his chosen mortal shell. and states that Justice has been served. What if Malthael returns and wants his job back?
Just a few of the questions running through my head this rainy morning.

What gets me is that there was emphasis on the fact that the Black Soulstone could contain both demons and ANGELS... yet do we know of any angels imprisoned in it??
Not only do we not, we're not even sure what became of Imperius after the celestial dust settled up there in Heaven. He and his retinue just sort of passed out or something as Diablo began to corrupt the Crystal Arch, and then everybody was too busy fighting or making speeches to bother about what became of him.
What happened? Why would have they built him up so just to drop him like that? Did I miss something?

I have to assume Andariel and Duriel were simply sent to the Abyss after they were defeated; the Book of Cain says they were slain by the "heroes" (our D2 player characters) and there is no mention of soulstones.Posted in: Lore & Storyline
Has anyone been able to figure out more of this "soul-marking" process of Adria's? Is it like a marked deck of cards or something?

I would have removed it completely. The atmosphere as you approach bosses like Azmodan and Diablo is being built up beautifully...the music is getting more dramatic, there's darkness and flashing lightning, and suddenly here's Diablo talking to me out of the ether (not to mention out of his demonic nether regions). Shatters that scary, dramatic atmosphere like a fart in church.Posted in: Lore & Storyline
Despite that and Zolton Kulle MUHAHAHAHAAAAA'ing his way across Act Two, I'm not gonna get all harsh on Metzen and his team. They just shouldn't use the "Austin Powers" movies as a reference point when doing any future game writing.

I find that to be very well thought-out and written; a refreshing change from the "OMFG D3 SUX" wailing and gnashing of teeth I'm seeing elsewhere. Well done.Posted in: Lore & Storyline

And speaking of that worthy, I wonder if he's going to make a cameo in D3 along with our old friends Gharbad and the Butcher. Haven't heard anything about it, have you?Posted in: Lore & Storyline

Y'all remember that scene in Airplane! where all the reporters ran into the phone booths at the end and the booths fell over?Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

So does anybody know or guess how long it takes the installer to do its thing? I've got work today, and want to spend a few hours in the Guild Wars 2 stress test when I get home.Posted in: Technical Support
