That’s not what I hear in the complaints. The Scourge is being supplied by the Shadowlands.

In any case, undead being unnatural is arbitrary. I could easily write a fantasy setting where they are...

I saw a lot of criticism of the new death cosmic force because it is written to create the undead rather than find them corruptions of death. This in itself is based on the idea that undeath is a...

From a gameplay perspective their games are great. That's all.

I don't care about Blizzard storytelling except to mock it. That said, I'm curious how Marthen will integrate the Shadowlands materials into his Retrocraft setting. I was always fascinated by how he...

The manual doesn’t set a high bar. It never did. It is a lot higher than that set by the games. The games have always been shlocky even before SC2.

I don’t think the manual is some “unassailable jewel”. It is bare bones at best. But it isn’t anywhere near as silly as the games’ plot.

The frustrating part is that most of that is vastly inferior to the political status quo setup in the decades old SC1 manual.

Okay, so I'd like to start up some more conversation. Here's a subject that should prove sufficiently controversial: the future of the Starcraft storyline.

What if there were more factions than Alliance/Horde?

I don't know if a question like this has been asked before, but I had this crazy idea for a version of World of Warcraft which had several more factions than the binary Alliance/Horde.
