Well as far as understand the Light is completely good but they don't have too much patience with anything that isn't as good as them or doesn't completely fall in their plans.
They will easily "sacrifice many to just save their ideals" which is considered not so "good" by many...
I think that in the Diablo universe it’s easier to think of the Darkness as the dirty, ugly and funky looking ones and the Light as the clean, cool peeps with awesome wings... Not to be confused with worldly definitions of good and evil...
Exactly.... they may appear good in light, but really in all, it's just a title. The High Heavens is more like an order, a system or government. In the Beginning there was the darkness and the light. They interact with one another because that is their purpose, or put more simply, what else was there? Without one, there is no other, just a balanced equation with irreversible entities. Two sides of a war equally matched. Now we introduce X, being Sanctuary, into this equation.... Now there's more matter, that is neither nor, but can be formatted to either side.... changes everything. The greater amount will win.
The Bruning Hells want Sanctuary because within it is the power to stop this war. The High Heavens wanted sanctuary to live because just as easily they can end this war. However, the High Heavens sought to destroy the world because that is also a chance of it turning to the opposing force.
Sanctuary has proven that they can stop if not atleast hold strong against the Burning Hells, on Sanctuary's territory.... But what about the High Heavens? I have a feeling Imperius would be a formidable opponet. In the Sin Wars Uldyssian was able to stop everything at once.... so now we have a triangle of existance.....
But the homepage as an article saying that there are other worlds in the Diablo universe completely destroying the special circumstances of Sanctuary, pretty much killing the lore of this whole game... (Yeah, that kind of bugs me, but oh well.... hopefully they won't go completely WoWish [not gameplay, but story] and start pulling things from out of no freaking where).
Yeah it's somewhat like that.... if you want a good read pick up the Sin War Triliogy by Richard A. Knaak. His writing style is good..... but not to compelling. There'll be boring pasrts for about 60% of the triliogy... however that 40% makes up for it.
Not to ruin any spoilers, one of the nephilim (humans) had so much power that he completely stopped both the burning hells and high heavens.... but that was with some advance hlep of the demons and angels.... it would take an unbelievable amount of time before the humans can be able to tap and control that power inside of them.... but it's really a great read to get the lore.
i would actually like to see the 3 prime evils as more of a side quest, think about it diablo 1 main boss diablo, diablo 2 basicly has 3 main bosses, mephisto, diablo, and baal... and they have been spanked how many times now??? maybe the ultimate evil? the ruler of the three, a nasty power you must defeat all three at the same time( much like uber trist) aquirering their skulls to more or less "summon" this all powerful ruler of darkness
i think the idea that your fighting the light would be fatal to the story of diablo...might as well call it jesus
From the lore stand point, there hasn't been anything mentioned about a higher being... I picture it being like the Burning Hells as one big entity of dark power. The Primes just happen to be the bigger clumps of power which in the ranks of Burning Hells, the strongest are on top. So, I think the Primes are pretty much the tops of the tops and there's no one else to take the place.... unless someone smarter and more powerful came along... but they'd have to be an outsider.... from you know... Sanctuary? Just a possibility.
As far as seeing more diabolical enemies, check out Imperius.... We actually may have seen some artwork of him, unofficial. There's also some other angels. Belial and Azmodan are the two lesser evils of Lies and Sins.... No imagine fighting the Lord of Lies..... What kind of sick plot twists could they develop! Then there's always unmentioned characters of Sanctuary like rogue Necromancers or Wizards.
This one's far out there.... but it's possible. Inarius. Look up what happened to him from the D1 manual and try to picture seeing him as whole in your head..... pretty nasty, in a delicious sense.
Maybe a compilation of the three, "diamephaal" could burst forth from the world stone as it is being destroyed as a spirit that flees to hell... i like the idea of a Rouge necromancer sewing together the parts of the 3 and meshing the spirit with this franken'prime
I hope that we don't need to go against the Light...Aren't we supposed to be fighting against the Darkness? I don't mind fighting against a traitorous fallen Archangel but fighting against pure good? Not so much...
Pure good: No cursing, no criticism allowed, no unprovoked violence, no eating of animals, no sex outside/before marrige, no divorces, no alcohol or drugs or mind altering substances, no selfishness or self indulgence allowed, no selling of items for profit, everyone works for the same payment, everyone has to share with those who have little. It's communism.
There would be zero tolerance for these actions; death penalty.
To the absolute good, everything not absolutely good is definately evil.
I always liked the idea of light beeing too good for humans.
Humans aren't good, we're neutral.
Most humans can't live with the same person in marrige without growing unhappy through the years.
Most humans lie, get addicted to something (coffee, sugar, chocolate, alcohol, coca cola, pepsi max etc.), commit unprovoked acts of violence at some point, sells things for profit whenever they can, are self indulgent, think's he should get more paid than the next man, doesn't care about the pain and suffering of his food, can but won't do anything about the suffering of others in the world because it doesn't make *him* happy to have less, and so on and so on.
Just read the old testament for silly laws the forces of good would try to pull down over our heads.
Death penalty for cursing your parents, death penalty for having sex outside marrige, death penalty for *** sex.
We love our sinners, and love to sin -- to an extent.
Which is why we don't side with the demons, either.
