Sigh.... All I'm saying is you can't assume the only things in the game are the things they have shown us so far, that the game is a motionless existance beyond the screen of our game's camera. Events, things, and people exist beyond what we have been shown in D3 and other sources of lore.
I consider any lore in the game as something shown to the player. So if the player goes to a place, is shown a place, or someone mentions a place then it exists.
Going back to the source of this allegory, as no one in Bastions Keep mentioned that Tyrael was a good commander and we never observed him demonstrating any tactical abilities it's clear that Tyrael was pretty useless. I think the only think he does is tells you to light the signal fires and asks the king of Westmarsh for help. For everything else at least 2 or 3 other people mention what you need to do.
So uhh.... You quote an instance of a majority vote as a reponse to me saying Tyrael can't make laws without a majority vote? You do realize that if he was going to change the laws, he would have attempted to do so before he went to Sanctuary at all rather then to justify going back? I don't know all the details about it, but I'm pretty sure that it would not have been overturned.
Tyrael didn't tell the angels about the prime evils being in the Sanctuary because he was worried that the angels would vote to destroy it, so he secretly helped the humans capture the prime evils.
The only prohibition against acting in the Sanctuary was the agreement between the angels and demons, something the demons had clearly broken when they corrupted the Worldstone. Why Imperius was demanding Tyrael obey this broken contract was never explained, though I suspect it's because the plot was so badly written.
Becoming mortal was a stupid decision when Tyrael clearly has other options available, such as having the archangels vote on whether the angels should help humanity fight against the demons.
You misunderstand me, I ment at the time he didn't want to fight them directly, they weren't on Sanctuary yet. Don't assume that Tyrael wasn't doing something while your fighting Belial and Azmodan.......
Your ignorance of D3 is painful to read.
Tyrael's message to humanity is that Belial is in Caldium so unless Tyrael saw Belial as he was falling from heaven it's clear that Belial must have been in the Sanctuary before Tyrael became a mortal.
Also during the player's fights with Belial and Azmodan Tyrael is quite clearly seen standing around in the Hidden Camp and Bastion's Keep doing nothing. Seriously what could be more important for Tyrael than fighting against the demon lords when his whole reason for becoming mortal was to fight against the demon lords.
If Tyrael did not come to Sanctuary in D2, the Worldstone would still be corrupted and who knows what would have happened in the events before D1 and D2 without his help. Tyrael is not the type to just lay back and let stuff happen. What makes you think cultists don't exist in other parts of the world? They were in Tristram, not just Caldeum. What makes you think that the people of Caldeum know that Belial is on Sanctuary?
Tyrael didn't need to become a mortal in the past or during D2 to be helpful.
The Cultists came to Tristram because Tyrael fell from heaven near Tristram (the player also came to Tristram for the same reason). The Cultists are in Tristram because of Tyrael and his sword, and in Caldium because that's were Belial is. That's why they don't show up until you try to find Tyrael's sword and disappear once you defeat their leader (Magna).
Magna is part of a cult that worships the demon lords, specifically Belial. The notes show that Belial is in contact with her and that the demons pretending to be guards are getting sacrifices for Belial. Finally once Belial attacks everyone for revolting against him it's very clear that Belial is in Caldium.
Just because Tyrael knew Belial was in Caldeum doesn't make able to protect Leah from getting captured in every possible scenario. I'm going to say he didn't want to be wisdom at that time, and that probably has nothing to do with being wise. Just because you know something might happen doesn't make it an impossiblity.
Tyrael specifically when with Leah to protect her. Yet someone she got captured and he was able to escape. So either he failed to protect her (not wise) or he let her get captured (not just).
