    Diablo Storyline Tombs - bring em back!!

    "Hail and Sacrifice to Diablo, Lord of Terror and Destroyer of Souls!" -Lazarus

    I would very much like to see Blizzard bring back the storyline and quest tomes from Diablo 1. :thumbup:

    Link: Example

    The guys voice is superb, perfect for the Diablo world - adds a very dark tone and also tells the background storyline. Hell, Diablo 3 is going to have bosses based on a Diablo 1 tome. (see storyline forum). I also thought it was great when you'd hear your characters voice reading the quest tombs like the book of the blind

    Unfortunately Diablo 2 only had a few of these tomes, but hopefully they'll add more in Diablo 3!

    Even though Lazarus is dead, it doesn't mean he didn't write books we haven't read yet! Take Diablo 2 for example- from what i recall, the countess tomb was the same voice.

    I think it would be great if they added more Tomes written by Lazarus to tell part of the new storyline that we haven't heard about it. As i mentioned before, Belial and Azmodan were introduced by Lazarus, so why not have him go into some horrific depth similar as his descriptive tomes of Diablo? :evil:

    sounds good i think... they already have a plan for the tomes to be read aloud and kept for later reference i do believe. so i dont really know what ur asking for... just the same voiceover actor to come back and do more?

    I think that is GREAT idea. Learining the story throught tomes like in d1. Also:
    I memorised that poem from Diablo, and I was remembering it for a long time before I forgot. Now you woke up some good memories ;)

    Re: Diablo Storyline Tombs - bring em back!!

    Tomes were indeed great. But it was kind of a plot-explaining mechanism due to the lack of ... well other things who could explain the plot. In Diablo II there was only one tome for quest 4 in act I (tower) and much of the story came from the NPCs and cinematics, which there were far less in Diablo I.

    That said, we probably won't see much tomes :(

    Actually, didn't they say that there would be tomes, which were actually read out loud for you? I know I remember this.
