Thanks, I read it the other day and I thought it might be interesting. And it indeed is Shatterer
The Nephalem were weakened because of Inarius. He didn't want Lilith to make an army to rule all of Sanctuary, the Heavens and the Hells.
After Sanctuary's discovery, they all agreed to let the humans do their own business. But they didn't make them Nephalem again, even if they could, so they still could keep an eye on them. Everything humankind has accomplished, it has done so through studying, training and a little Nephalem birthright. They're just being nice, the angel's way.
On the other hand, I'm quite curious if the Heavens know that the Nephalem's full powers (at least more than is shown now) still lie in the current generation. Lilith was able to unlock them, maybe when the demons win their fight against the humans they can unlock those powers as well. Then they have Nephalem to fight for them, now that's something I don't want to face.

Learning that the revolution in Hell was set into motion by aggressive Demon-Lords, frustrated by the standstill in the Great Conflict, the Angels were certain that a mass assault upon the realms of Heaven by the forces of Hell was imminent. In preparation for the attack, the Angels withdrew their forces from the mortal realm, leaving mankind to fend for itself. The Angels of Heaven felt that the mankind's defence of their own world would be a way to prove themselves as worthy allies or a liability in the Great Conflict.
Source: Diablo Wiki - The Sin War (http://diablo.wikia.com/wiki/The_Sin_War)
Heaven doesn't want to interfere in Sanctuary to see if they can defend themselves.
Tyrael didn't think the humans would fare well on their own, so he created the Horadrim. As can be read in the Wiki, at least several angels agreed that that was a proper course of action.
When talking about the paladin, I have to think of Horazon as well. Horazon used the powers ofHll and summoned demons. He did this while having no aid from the Burning Hells, as far is I know. The demons did try to overthrow him, since that is their nature.
As I see it, the Paladins do the same thing, but only with the heavens. As Horazon tapped into the powers of Hell, the Zakarum tapped into the powers of heaven. The angels, as stated above, agreed to not aid the angels in any way (except for the horadrim bit), but not hinder them as well. They just let them go their own way.
Thus the paladins are able to gain powers from the heavens on their own accord, not because the angels actually give it to them.
Of course, this is a little sketchy, since I haven't read all of the books just yet, but I wanted to give my two cents.
Jan 15, 2009Shatterer posted a message on Which is your favourite Act from D2 and D2:LOD and why?To me, each act has its own special quirks.Posted in: Diablo II
Act 1 just has nostalgia written all over it. There are no annoying monsters as far as I'm concerned (which is a plus), and fallen are just way cool. The minus is that, to me, it doesn't really have that 'oomph' to make it to number one.
Act 2 is vibrant, or painfully bright. The amount of extra dungeons in this place are also fun to explore. Also, the Arcane Sanctuary is awesome. Minus is, of course, the Maggot Lair.
Act 3 is a maze. At times it is good, but when you realize that you are on the wrong side of the central river AGAIN, it's just not funny anymore. Also, fetishes.
Act 4 feels rather plain. At least, until you reach the river of flame, which is another cool part of D2. But before you get to that part, Hell feels rather empty, gray. More like purgatory instead of the Burning Hells.
Act 5 is just massive, but sadly also way to linear. The music, however, was great and I often stayed in Harrogath just to listen to the soundtrack.
I chose Act 2, since I love the music, the amount of tombs and the Arcane Sanctuary.
Quick note, I always found the difference between the Summoner and Duriel steep. I mean, the Summoner is weak, but Duriel...
Jan 15, 2009I just wanted to say that I am a new member to this forum.Posted in: Introduction
And now for something completely expected:
I have been lurking around this site for many months, to be honest. It started a few weeks after the WWI announcement, when the news finally reached me. I don't know how I ended up here, but I do think Google had something to do with it.
Anyway, since then I have enjoyed reading the news and random threads around the forum.
At times, I wanted to reply to some thread just to share my opinion, but couldn't because I simply didn't have an account. After letting several of those chances slip by, I decided that now I just had to register.
I don't know exactly when I started playing the Diablo series. My memory tends to fail big time.
I do know that I played Diablo I (full or demo) with a friend, and the Butcher will always have a special place in my heart. That bloody room leaves a mark...
Diablo II is a game I truly love playing. I will never forget my first character (sorceress) trapped in act 3 with fetishes all around. After that, the Necromancer just grew on me (especially when I met Alkor, gotta love that guy)
So, there you have it. My complete Diablo history.
I hope to have a fun time at this forum and, of course, to be productive and supportive.
Oh, I forgot. I'm Dutch.
*Edit - And I'm a guy.

Jan 20, 2010Posted in: NewsQuote from "emilemil1" »2. Lilith, a demon in Sanctuary, eventually slayed every single demon and angel (except Inarius). She had problems with this peace thing xD
She wanted to use the power of the Nephalem to stop the conflict and rule everything, if I'm correct.
Jan 20, 2010Posted in: NewsQuote from "maka" »humans are half angel and half demon.
Yeah, I should have pointed that out a bit better. Here's a bit of lore history:
At some time during the Great Conflict one of the angels (Inarius) was sick of battle and decided to create a little world of peace called Sanctuary. This was a world cloaked from both the High Heavens and the Burning Hells by means of the Worldstone.
Here, both angel and demon could flee to experience peace, and that's where some mated. The child of this union was called a Nephalem, some hugely overpowered humanlike being stronger than angel or demon.
Inarius saw this creature and altered the Worldstone to dampen their powers. After many generations their powers diminished and that leaves us with the humans we know today.
But I have no idea what happens when humans die in Sanctuary. Or how new angels or demons are created. I think only the priests of Rathma (necromancers) know the answer to that
Jan 20, 2010Posted in: NewsQuote from "luc1027" »I know that !! but if we start to change definitions of words just because we change the world, it's suck. I mean, people in the sanctuary talk in english ? why not change the whole language at the same time ?
We don't know if the people talk English. If it would be another language then we wouldn't be able to understand, so everything is translated to English.
Say you're reading a story about an African village. The dialogue will probably be in English while the natives talk to each other in their native tongue.
I do believe that Sanctuary's Heaven will be a beautiful place, in contrast to the not so happy Burning Hells. What we do know that there are Angels who are not happy with the existence of humans, because they are demonspawn. I don't know how many angels agree to this view, but if there are a lot of them this might end in a giant 3-way battle between Sanctuary/Heaven/Hell.
I haven't read the Sin War trilogy or any other lore stuff. This is only my personal opinion combined with scraps of knowledge I gathered on this site.

Do you mean the faded green/white?
Because those seem to be
From what I can understand from the code it creates a table with that background color.
Jan 18, 2010The only thing that really distracts me is the lvl-up bar. That's probably better in the username-thing, since it seems a bit redundant in the postbit. To me the post-bit should show you the posting habit of the user, not when he gains a new level.Posted in: News
Still, cool system and I'm quite anxious to know what lies ahead.
