Hope it's legit to post this info here. If not, excuse me please.



Sector 6 was written by Micky Neilson.

"Sector 6 follows a Moebius Corps squad as they spiral down a rabbit hole of insanity, a condition that may be linked to an ages-old alien relic. Will they overcome the mysterious forces that push them to the brink of mental meltdown? You?ll have to read to find out!"

When he killed that Cerebrate, the Overmind was able to see his mind for a moment. It used what it saw to find its way to Aiur.

Random thing, but back me up on this, don't you miss the Protoss having yellow/orange glowing eyes? I feel like they've gone wrong making such clear color distinctions with the dark templar mainly having green eyes and the Khalai having glowing blue.

Even after the cerebrate, you also have to remember that he went AWOL to chase a prophecy that the rest of the protoss do not care about and is almost directly responsible for Kerrigan not being shot in the head. I think Selendis is talking about both bringing the zerg and the subsequent heresy.

Purifiers
The Purifiers were built under direct order of the Conclave to be an ultimate fighting force at a time when the scientists were making technological advancements in intelligent robotics and A.I. The program was originally kept in shadow and unified by the belief that consciousness could be turned into data, thereby used to preserve the thought-process and decision-making ability of a formerly living being. Studies proved that the replications were often 99.3 percent accurate to the protoss subject the replication was patterned after. The Conclave moved to use this technology to build a force replicated from the greatest warriors in history.
They did not, however, treat the Purifiers with the same respect afforded to regular Templar. Instead, the Purifiers were little more than slaves in the Conclave's eyes. Eventually, the Purifiers chose to rebel, killing their masters. In return, the Conclave determined that the Purifiers were too dangerous and banned them. They were powered down and launched away in a command vessel, Cybros, to be reactivated only in the direst of circumstances
- from the official press release.

Further evidence of what a bunch of jerks the Conclave were.

How much ya wanna bet they started out wanting the Purifiers outright destroyed, until another respected Adun/Tassadar-type refused to carry out the order and they settled for deactivation instead?

New comic!

http://us.battle.net/sc2/en/media/bl...nis-sacrifice/

We get to see the Hierarchy in all their inconsistently-drawn glory!

Also, "Aiur protoss" is used/shilled as a proper noun again, but the term "Khalai" is still in vogue.

Aldaris had A HAT!

Artanis' portrait from "In Utter Darkness" seems to be his non-hierarch armor. Timeline differences!

Uh, that's a weird thing to still hold a grudge over... and kind of flimsy to blame Zeratul for that.

Plus it's pretty strange considering he retained an active leadership role among the protoss throughout Brood War.

I could see the Dark Templar resenting him for skipping town to chase prophecies instead of succeeding Raszagal, but nothing really suggested that the other protoss had any problem with him specifically. He even had a small army of them with him when he found Duran's lab in BW.

Zeratul's whole "brooding loner in exile" schtick in SC2 has always felt a bit "off" to me. He was basically second-in-command of the Dark Templar civilization, then suddenly became a Batman/Brann Bronzebeard hybrid at the start of WoL.

She owed him for the rescued protoss. Something about honor.

Default Possible spoilers

http://us.battle.net/sc2/en/blog/199...ons-10-30-2015

If you stop at about 2:08, there's new portraits, including one for Fenix that may have a flare of Purifier orange as well as one labeled "Ascended Kerrigan"

Also ones for "Ouros" and "Vision Temple" which do not mean anything yet. Vorazun also gets two (they seem to be the same image mirrored, but something might change her appearance slightly).

Default New Tilesets

A few new names, such as Ulnar, Endion and "The Void." Last one may be for either an Epilogue mission, or perhaps the Finale. Extra planar place perhaps?

Xel'naga city... rocks... and the Void. Amon lives there. Remember the Tal'darim short story?

I'm more confused about Endion.

Ulnar was the name of the "shadowed world" featured in In Utter Darkness. My guess is that that's where the final showdown's going to occur. Only difference is that now the Protoss have a chance of winning against Amon

If you look at the portrait selection now you can get a better view. Amon and Ouros look pretty similar. Purifier Fenix confirmed.
