Caiden of Dalvengyr was exploring in Netherstorm the other day when he came upon something unusual: a futuristic blue monument that lit up with different symbols, including a V and a horseshoe. A couple people tossed out guesses as to the purpose of the monument -- the Ashbringer, the iHearthstone, the key to defeating warlocks -- before Blizzard rep Drysc chimed in:
"Rest in peace Nova...
I close my eyes
Only for a moment, then the moment's gone
All my dreams
Pass before my eyes, a curiosity
Dust in the wind
All they are is dust in the wind...
Nova, of course, is the heroine of Starcraft: Ghost. The flashing symbols spell out an approximation of her name. Apparently Blizzard has set up a memorial for one of their own games in Netherstorm. I guess this is as good as sign as any, along with the announcement of Starcraft 2, that Ghost has joined Duke Nukem Forever in the eternal vaporware bin.
