Ah, Tornne. That little genocide causer. Does Loghaire know about Tornne?

What call? Tornne knew Loghaire?

Tornne caused the plague that wiped out most of the Dwarves. Loghaire was one of the few remaining.

No.

He knows that a plague destroyed the Dwarves and that something malign caused it, but he does not know the source. I doubt any member of the Order does, actually.

What (weapon/spell) hurts Greel most? He is mortal, right?

Does Glasse survive the Desert of Exile campaigns?

Myriad is a void creature, right? When did he came to Antivoid?

Uhm, what hurts most things. There are no real weapon immunities in this story, very few.

Yes.

He is a voidwalker and came with Azzr to the Antivoid at the prelude to the first war.

What is Myriad the Voidwalker OF? And is he one of the Voidwalkers that is nearly/as strong as the Council, but simply wasn't picked at the time?

A part of it is in the "DoE Lore".

But as far as I've known, Dusk never began writing any book about all these stuff.


So, what does Mutuo looks like and why he followed the Order when he was a kid? (In the AotZ story) Does he have a reason or simply followed the Order because there was nothing to do?

In my mind or in the maps. Those are the only options thus far.

Origins; and since you'll ask about his counterpart, Birth. I said procreation, but then I remembered that the opposite of destruction was creation and I didn't want anyone to be confused.

It's not a matter of "not being picked." It's tough to pick Myriad since he's a mindset, a thought, an entity. He's hardly a voidwalker like Exuro or Vertejaune, etc.

He followed Hanzaemon but got lost in a city. It was by extreme fortune that he found anyone, let alone Kisrug.

I have a question, not certain if its been addressed already:

the basic Bane troops - warriors of the bane, stalkers of the bane and cultists of the bane - are they actually Baneites (like Vela, Meridia and Rikter) or some other kind of creature?
If they are true Baneites, are they mutations of the standard Baneites or were they just the closest models to the theme?

All of the creeps are "supposed" to be baneite or ash walkers, though model selection doesn't always make that a realistic possibility. I try to keep everything around the same flesh color, but that becomes difficult on occasion. The bane soldiers and berserkers have perfect models, with the exception of being super mutated. It's really not an overly mutated army, though they do have a lot of augmented units that are super-fied by extraneous means.

Yeah. It's generally more useful to just use WC3 models/textures for creeps to save filespace. There are few exceptions, such as the awesome Hallowed Hunter texture I use. (Which has to exist for Fahren to have tusks anyways, so it works)
