Ok So one of my pet projects for the last 8 months or so has unironically been to create a “Custom multiverse” if you will of warcraft.
I am looking for feedback on the whole thing. Basically I have covered much of both Chronicles 1 and 2. But I did some changes for the lore to have it be more about “Character choices and personality” interact with each other.
There are homever some stuff I want to announce before going into the lore.
Alot of my choices are based on certain elements of Warcraft being altered. There are alot of similarities but also alot of disparities.
For instance I decided to do away with “Peasants” and “Peons” to instead basically make it more of a “Laborer” change. Basically they are much like soldiers as in they are able to construct stuff. IF you are familiar with Starcraft 2 coop basically think of this as Mengsk Soldiers etc.
Peons and peasants are in my opinion stereotyped of being dumb and while I find it to be part of warcraft… I just didnt like the stereotype.
Anyway moving on… As I want the world to be more about choices and Personalities as opposed to “x has been corrupted by the old gods, light, etc etc” I chose to do away with the Old gods. I found them too powerful I go more into details with this, but entities such as Faceless and other old gods minions exist. The Sha exist but they are more in line with “Shadow magic” which in this universe isnt “void magic” its basically a mix of Shadow and light. A balanced form of it.
I have a few other ideas like “Titans live” sort of etc etc. Anyway I am looking for feedback on Most aspects of the story.
And unlike BLizzard I want to change stuff. For instance the Ra-den and Lei-shen stuff isnt set in stone, and i wanted to rewrite it mid writing but couldnt do it per say as I wanted the other lore in place.
Anyway for the length: Currently I am at the end of the first war there are some plans for the future and things I want to do with certain characters. It’s a very alternate take on Azeroth. While much remains the same.
I am kinda new to google docs etc so please do provide feedback on my technical knowledge as well ^^.
The whole doc is about 17 pages long.
