Blizzard Entertainment has posted the sixth round of its Ask Creative Development Q&A series for StarCraft II. The answers focus on the lore of the popular sci-fi real time strategy game, giving fans insight into the storyline behind the frenzied combat.
Question: Are you planning to extend or add to the Tal'darim and their story in the coming expansions? Will they even be present in them?Head over to the link below to read more.
StarCraft 2 Lore Q&A
Answer: Oh, you'll be hearing from the Tal'darim. An interesting note about them: I've seen people reference the fact that they are the Protoss who fell victim to Ulrezaj on Aiur. But no one has pointed out that the Tal'darim in Wings seem to have been around for a long time—much longer than the refugees on Aiur.
The Tal'darim in the Dark Templar trilogy are actually not a faction; they are a cult of drug-addicted Protoss looking for a cause. But their defining feature is that they chose to leave the community of Protoss on Aiur. So they took their name ("the Forged") from an ancient sect that parted ways with the Aiur Protoss. That ancient sect is the Tal'darim you meet in Wings—a full faction.
We didn't go into the difference in the game because Jim Raynor would not have known about the Tal'darim in the Dark Templar trilogy, and so would not have been discussing them. Also, many players would not be aware of that group either.
