-----Pyromelter Oct 11th 2010 2:59PMI think you guys are missing my question. I'm not asking about the lore of the Old Gods. I am asking about how you feel about their story (or lack thereof).-----I like this question more and more as I think it over. Now that I think about it, I'm not all that in to the Old Gods story. It's not like I'm looking forward to the next content patch hoping for more Old God revelations. But that's not the same as liking the story.I like the Old Gods story. It's good background flavor. It provides motivations. It acts as a catalyst for others' actions. And it provides a really great story hook; minions.We've done two big multi-guild / multi-faction PvP RP story archs on our server in the past year. One of the guidelines we wanted to follow was providing the feeling of grand scale but not run counter to Blizzard lore (and avoid dipping too deeply in to the Mary Sue pool). Our two story arcs had to do with the Burning Legion although (for the most part) it was demon free. Representing the Legion were mortal cultists of (ultimately) the Shadow Council. These minions represented the threat of the Legion but were nameless. Their success would have consequences. But their (ultimate) defeat would not endanger running counter to cannon.I like the Old Gods story in that I don't have to understand it all for it to work within my RP world. I need to know it exists. And it provides another convenient group to work with - the Twlight's Hammer (perhaps many more). I can work that in to a story line and have a lot of fun with it. I don't need to know the intricacies of the Old Gods because I'm not going to rent an apartment with them and have to explain odd goings-on to the Titan landlord who's convinced I'm a Watcher.So yeah.... all in all, I like the story. I'm just not wrapped up in it.
