So I have 5 85s, and I’m not bragging. I’m simply trying to bring a little highlight to the main point of the idea that I’m going to be bringing up in this post. I have 5 85s, and I don’t know a thing about the lore of the game. The Scarlet Monastery was the guys working for the Sheriff of Nottingham. Darth Vader led the scourge before Arthas Menethil. And of course, Gamon is Han Solo.
Why do I have no idea what the actual lore in the game is? That’s simple, cause all I’ve ever really done is just click “accept” on quests and gone and done the dirty work, come back and turned them in. Notice that in that process I did not say “read the quest text and enjoy/experience the real story in the game”. That would be because I’ve never really taken the time to find out any of that information.
But that’s about to change…
I’d like to introduce you to my lore project. I’ve decided to turn things up on their heads. I’m tired of not knowing what’s going on. Why do people always root for Illidan like they do? I heard he was a baddie, so I want to kill him. But apparently there is more to him than his rough exterior? Like, why is he helping me in Well of Eternity?
I’ve been reading up on Warlocks in Mists of Panderia, and I really am interested in leveling one up. So a perfect chance arose to start leveling one up and to read all my quest text that I possibly can.
So the idea here is to read all the quest text and let you know what I’ve learned Lore wise. I want to share the knowledge, cause I guarantee there are people out there like me that think Jason (ski mask and all) taught Skadi the Ruthless his sweet moves.
What do you think? Good idea? Bad idea? Well, we’ll get a few posts in and see what you all actually think. And while I’m on the subject of what you guys think… leave a comment. It let’s me know that I should keep going, although I don’t write just for people to read, since I love the creative expression, but I’d love to hear what you guys have to think anyways.
So here we go on a new dark artsy trip down lore lane. Can’t wait to see what the “real” story is. To Tirisfal Glades!
