also, with regard to ‘respecting lore’ in general


i also just want to gently remind everyone that i personally went to blizzcon and i personally asked chris metzen about the validity of the RPG books (upon which most Wiki sites are still based) and his response was, WORD-FOR-WORD

“they’re a fucking mess”

there is no lore to respect here.  there is a pastiche of concepts haphazardly pasted together because they seemed interesting at the time

there are eggs, flour, butter and sugar BUT THERE IS NO PIE
