    That is a nice point to take note of.

    Aside from the Cthulhu image (I think we all know blizzard had that in because the fans were asking for it in the forums), did you ever get an idea of what the XelNaga looked like? I mean, as you read the books, were there any ideas thrown in that should help us, at least, form an abstract of what they are or how they appear?

    The Xel'Naga were never clearly described in the novels, the closest might be some of the visions of them leaving Aiur but even then it was only references to their ship (of course we now know that was Amon and co)

    Official stuff aside, I do really like your Xel'Naga concepts :D

    For what it's worth, I agree with you :)

    Keep in mind in the stories and such much Protoss technology is described as being controlled telepathically - lack of limbs is not necessarily an issue. For example in the Dark Templar Trilogy a Human pilot is unable to pilot a Protoss ship because she's not a telepath.

    My take is Ouros/Amon and the bodies we see are possibly the forms from the PREVIOUS cycle. I think the Hybrids are a perversion of what the Protoss and Zerg would have come together as naturally as the Xel'Naga planned, but odds are the unified race would have still resembled the Hybrids - in other words Amon forced their coming together.

    I'm not sure of the specifics but I imagine the Dark Templar would be a good place to look as they have unique portraits for their two variations (I think)

    Might I suggest making it so he's kneeling or has some kind of structure that obscures his legs entirely? Kinda like he's been grafted into the 'sled' permanently? Maybe something like the Necron Destroyer from Warhammer 40k? Necron Destroyer

    Nice looking screen ^_^

    As for shadows no offense for asking but try pressing 's' it's the hotkey for toggling shadows in the editor and it's possible you accidently hit it without realising. Otherwise, no idea...

    Honestly, I feel sorry for all the undoubtably skilled artists and developers who, rather than being given an opportunity to develop something new of their own are just tasked with copying other games :(

    posted a message on Do Protoss have children?

    @Pr0nogo: Go

    I really don't get your logic. Kids were never mentioned in 1, but having a character stated as the kid of a character from 1 in 2 is somehow a glaring plot hole? Way I see it they've just never had any particular reason to go into detail about Protoss reproduction. Just because kids aren't mentioned in 1 it doesn't mean they didn't exist and that their existence is some kind of mega retcon. It's the same sort of train of thought that I've seen in WC Lore discussions where people are shocked at the existence of females of a species that's only previously shown males simply due to there not having previously been any specific reason to make more than one model for them as they were generally creep races.

    Oh I just remembered as it was mentioned before. Nerazim do actually have physiological differences to Khalai Protoss. If you look at their head plates/ridges they tend to be more jagged and pointed whereas Khalai Protoss tend towards being smoother. Interestingly Tal'Darim seem to have similar pointed head plates/ridges, possibly suggesting it's a result of long term exposure to Void energies?

    Heh I could definitely see Spartan upbringing for Templar Caste yes :D though perhaps with shades of monastic upbringing too as Templar have a certain mystical side to them too. (Which is part of the reason I actually feel 40k Space Marines or specifically Grey Knights are a far better comparison to Protoss than Eldar but that's another topic entirely)

    Judicator Caste I could see having been very much being like monastic upbringing, lots of contemplation and learning the rule, traditions pseudo religious overtones (Protoss religion is confusing btw. Even back in SC1 Aldaris referred to the Nerazim as Heretics. Then again Khas seems to be a somewhat messianic figure to Khalai Protoss)

    Preservers is probably highly specialized given Preservers seemingly had a genetic predisposition to Khala sensitivity so probably need training not to be overwhelmed by it.

    Khalai Worker Caste... no idea hah. Possibly actually the closest to average human upbringing but with training in practical skills like building, warp smithing etc.

    Not sure about Nerazim.
