    Holas Shadow Erites!

    First and foremost, I'm sorry this took me so long. I like to wait until there are a few questions so it only takes 1 post to get a page's worth, but then you guys got a little ahead of me, and then it was the holidays, and then bah! Thankfully, some of you really stepped up these past weeks and showed off how much attention you've been paying by answering the questions and answering them well! So, for that I must say thank you!!

    Anyways, I've done my best to answer as many of the questions as I can without spoiling too much. As always, some questions might not have been answered at all, others to only a minor extent, and many just get a 'Coming Soon!' tag... hope these help!

    Also, about DoA...is she a specific member of the group, or do they all look exactly like that?
    It has been said, but again for clarity: Eladwen is NOT from the Wilds. As for the Aldmor, keep your eyes peeled for the 'Tribes in Focus'.

    Again, answered well by the fans but to be clear: Lyth is an incredibly harsh environment. It held the first settlers as 'prisoners', and establishing new territories is incredibly difficult.

    No, though it was worn by a prominent 'military' leader-have to watch out for who at another time!

    No. Not even close. The Tome is just a representation of the works of magical knowledge being collected across all the worlds!

    Are they brought to life by being infused with Shadow Energy? Why can they, but not other objects?
    Many weapons have been forged across Balor, for a myriad of purposes. As for specifics, not yet!

    Raven is from Irum, which is a nation that made its commerce by raising mercenaries then sending them to other nations to train their armies (since there were no wars to be fought!). As for Raven specifically, time will tell!

    There are numerous stars and planets in Balor's skys. Their universe is as vast as ours; in fact some scholars theorize that the 'Shadow' actually hail from the darkest corners of the same universe, while others argue they come from other 'parrallel' universes. The truth? Take a guess.

    Magic began to appear in Balor at the same time as the crystals were discovered, but no direct correlation has been found. That said, some people are able to harness energy from the crystals to perform INCREDIBLE feats but the war has stunted the scholarly debates on how and why.

    Currently I can't delve too deeply into the hero backstories, but I will say this: Two rogues means two backstories and both of those ideas sound quit familiar...

    According to the denizens of the Vale, the Swan is a living embodiement of the 'Creator'. She exists inside their ruler, who bears the same title and is as much a political power as she is a spritual leader. She is grace personified to her followers, and important no matter which nation or faith you hail from.

    Has the design team created any possible cards for the Hand yet?
    Yes. There are some all the way back from CotC, and in DP!

    Zail is a member of the Seven, and is the god of enlightenment. 'Zailen' is just using his name as an adjective for one of his followers!

    Who is Vreil? This person/something is mentioned on Blake Windrunner, and I've wondered if their will be any sort of mention as to who exactly this is that Blake takes down.
    As stated before, that hasn't been revealed yet!

    What can you tell us about the religion/cult the 'Falsebloods'?
    Sure thing. Most of the citizens of Thriss (Ravager homeworld) believe they are descended from powerful and terrible gods called the Asyn. These powerful beings destroyed much of the world, but then vanished after a great war. Only a few remained, and it was from them that the Ravagers arose. There is a small following, though, that believes these are just stories and that they 'blood of the Asyn' is a falsehood. Thus the moniker 'Falseblood'.

    Where are corrupted angel and soulbound angel from??? Can we expect to see angels as a tribe or faction???
    Currently, they are just promotional items. If there's a story behind them, then it certainly hasn't leaked out yet!

    Hmmm, interesting. Will be interesting to see if this myseterious and seemingly minor figure is actually of some importance.

    1. Why are the Undead so "cold"? I noticed that they usually have ice attack, why?

    2. Why does Yari Marksman has armed attack rather than ranged. Whenever I search a dictionary I find it's something related with shoting, and don't know if Marksman is an appropriate name.

    1. Like Frostmare's flavor text says "Cold as the grave itself!"

    2. As for Marksman, I believe his name is a reference more to his ability than his attack, he comes in and immediately snipes off an opposing ally if they have enough out. Also keep in mind that if the Design Team also feels the name doesn't quite fit, it can still be changed, as we are still at a stage for SF where things like this are still up in the air.

    Obviously Nachyo has the official answers, but these answers are probably sufficient for now until he goes on one of his mass postings again.

    Arthyle was the leader of the Layarian armies a millenia prior to the opening of the Shadow Gates. He almost conquered the known world but was killed by a Vozitian Assassin (The Hand of the King). Fast forward to current times and he was resurrected by the Man of Shadows to lead his armies against the human forces.
