What is this?
Playing the game I see things about "Nephalem". These are described the same as the nephilim in real life.
Then theres the "Horadrim"? You mean, Haridim? The ultra orthodox Jews? Whos symbol just happens to be a triangle in the game? As in, the eye in the triangle? Something about a secret cabal controlling the world, their symbol being the all seeing eye?
Why are real life things being misspelled in the game, while also being the same things as in real life?
This is just the beginning, too.
I wonder if B Lizzard (bad lizzard, i.e. evil serpent) is toying with so called forbidden knowledge of the ages?
Anyone else catch any interesting misspellings of real life things in this game? Creeping me out to be honest. Creeping me out because I know that those corporations who have the money in todays wold also have knowledge of the old times.
INB4 people who know nothing of ancient civilization 'mythology' start talking crap
Yes, blizz did gather a lot of information from ancient mythios and put them into their game as allusions,references,homages etc.
It however isn't some weird conspiracy theory like you make it out to be.
Blizz does this in just about all their games, these allusions have been around since D1, in WoW there's also allusions to Greek, Norse, and Egyptian mythology along with homages to Lovcraftian mythios. IIRC Starcraft 2 and the 2 expansions which aren't out yet had code names based on Greek Mythology (Heart of the Swarm being Project: Medusa iirc) in order to not give away the name of what they were doing before blizzcon/whenever they wanted to officially announce it.

You know who else has access to knowledge of these "old times?" anyone with an internet connection who knows how to use Wikipedia or anyone who has a nearby library in their town
I wonder if B Lizzard (bad lizzard, i.e. evil serpent)
You clearly don't know how Blizz got their name.
They were originally called silicon and synapse, as in computer chips and a reference to silicon valley, but people kept mistaking it for a reference to breast implants so they opened a dictionary and came to the word Ogre but they had to pay royalties to some other company who already had they name so they randomly opened the dictionary again and stumbled upon the word Blizzard, everyone liked the sound of it and thus Silicon and Synapse came to be known as Blizzard.
The dictionary definition of blizzard is: a storm with dry, driving snow, strong winds, and intense cold.
The name blizzard isn't some reference to satan in the form of a serpent, especially considering how blizzard's first games had nothing to do with the religion or diablo (rock n roll racing, the lost vikings, etc.)
