Blizzard-style Median XL promo video script (no actual video inside).

Post by Wazuzu on Thu May 30, 2013 11:37 am

Includes my thoughts about what could it be, if it existed.

Amazon:
She was standing at the end of hallway in the worldstone throne room. Baal was standing upon the throne. A malicious laugh echoed through the hallway. It was so terrifying that it could scare anyone, but amazon herself wasn't scared.
Suddenly, Baal threw his arm in the air - and a small sparkle detached from it, flying across the room in a hectic pattern. It slowly descended before the amazon. She watched both the sparkle and Baal, slowly and carefully pulling her sacrificial knife from her hidden cleavage sheath. A puff of air - and it suddenly became chilling cold in the room. Amazon's eyelid twitched a little. She smiled and slit her wrists. In a moment after, a plague of ghastly vampiric figures appeared before her. One, that looked like a vampire elder, pointed a finger at the woman. And then the bacchanalia began.
A high-pitched maniacal laughter filled the room. Baal furrowed his brow in anticipation. Ghastly figures started to move towards the laughing warrior woman. But in a blink of an eye her wrists suddenly became ablaze in a sickly greenish fire. Her cries became louder and louder. Trails of green flame originated from her position, and started to crawl into direction of ghasts. They completely ignored the flames, and slowly advanced to her. One of the ghasts crossed the flame, and disappeared in a matter of second. That went unnoticed by others, as they continued to advance, burning in her flames one by one. And almost no time passed, when she faced an elder vampire face to face. She smiled, and waved her hands a little. Small fireballs flew out of her diadem. They approached her adversary and stopped. She quickly threw her hands down, and every little fireball clashed into the place, where the elder ghast was a moment ago. She laughed even louder, yelling "Hahaha, your tricks won't work!", noticed a chilling sensation on her back, quickly turned around, and threw a fistful of red, glittering dust on the vampire. He was completely covered in it, as every piece of dust turned into microscopic magical asp, and hardened to the density of granite. Vampire was caught. She waved her hand upside-down again, and her little balls of fire descended upon a granite statue, shattering it to pieces. A loud "Ha!" was the last thing Baal heard, as he hurried into his freshly opened gateway to the worldstone. Amazon quickly dashed to him, shouting incantations on the way. Bloody skulls rose from the throne room floor, spitting searing torrents of fire into the immediate vicinity of fleeing Baal. A throne room shattered, when the flame blast hit the wall behind the gateway. Amazon spitted angrily on the floor, hastily approached the portal and jumped in. And the moment she disappeared, her sputter started to burn, destroying everything in the throne room in a second.

They never saw her coming. Inhabitants of Duncraig ruins, slain long ago by demon lord Assur weren't particularly attentive, maybe because they happened to be tortured souls stuck in mortal plane, anchored to powerful magic nexus, situated deep in the Duncraig dungeons. Or maybe they decided to play with her a bit, since it isn't quite pleasant to be a slain soul.
This way or another, they didn't pay attention on her silent movements, while she approached Lieutenant Eyegouger - the corrupted carcass of a once powerful warrior, turned into dangerous writhing mass of undeath. He was the fifth. She already killed all other Assur's Lieutenants in desperate search of a signet, given to them by Assur himself, and tainted with his vile magics. She knew that it was capable of radiating hellish energy, capable of banishing Assur. All other lieutenants seemed to have lost the signet long ago. Nevertheless, she was determined enough to finish her goal.
She was about 13 yards away from Eyegouger, when he suddenly sniffed the air and turned into her direction. There wasn't any time to lose, she unsheathed her pole, flipped a hidden switch, and a two-feet long glowing blade appeared at the very edge of a pole - it was her trusty naginata. It all happened in a second. She suddenly disappeared from sight only to appear at arm's length from Eyegouger. He wasn't particuarly surprised by this, and immediately tried to silently claw her shoulder, while she partially dodged the blow while her automatic Shadow Refuge defense system kicked in at the rightest moment - ghostly claws of Eyegouger were going to penetrate her soft skin and break her fragile bones. She wasn't wearing any armor besides cutting-edge Viz'Jaq Taar techmaturgical devices - and failure of a defense system could easily result in her swift death. Nevertheless, claws were partially repelled, she glimpsed a thought that there gonna be a huge bruise next morning, while she swung her naginata upon Eyegouger's head. He dropped down like a sack of potatoes.
She already noticed, that his ring was ingrained in his finger, luckily preventing it from falling off. She chopped his finger off, removed the ring, and put it into Horadric Cube to cleanse the taint.
And, as if there wasn't any better moment, she saw Assur, slowly floating not far away from her. She readied her naginata and charged him. Assur seemed to be made of bone, as any other powerful ancient mage, but his bones were molten and phased out into another plane. They said no one was able to even harm Assur in any way. Nevertheless, she swung her naginata only to notice that it actually passes through his burning body. Assur threw a fireball on her, but she jumped away from it, sending another glancing strike in Assur's direction.
Suddenly she felt intense cold coming from her phase backpack. She swiftly put her hand into backpack only to find that source of that coldness was Eyegouger's ring. She threw a quick glance on it. The ring looked clean and shiny, all stains and parts of flesh were gone. Her studies were interrupted by a sudden shrieking noise, that came from above her. Not having the time to put ring back into her pouch, she readied her naginata...
...only to find a stream of flames raining down on her. Assur pounced onto her to ensure that she will not escape the pillar of flame.
It all seemed over. Until Assur found out that he wasn't getting grip on her. Neither he, nor his flamestrike appeared to hit her. Her image was overrun by static.
She sighed in relief. Perfect Being phase-out system utilised same technology, which was standing behind Assur's invulnerability, was very unreliable, yet it happened to work at the right moment.
She realized that she was still holding that ring. Clenching her fist, she desperately swung her hand onto Assur's face. She felt a burning sensation, when coldness of her hand holding the ring met hotness of Assur's astral body. His head started to slowly melt down, like green goo. He was stunned by her onslaught, yet he fould strength to throw a volley of fireballs onto her. But they never hit anything - she blinked behind him, activated her naginata and used a Crucify technique - her naginata's laserblade pierced the fabric of time, shattered into several pieces, and pierced Assur in several places. Assur started to melt faster. He was throwing fires everywhere, yet there wasn't anything to burn - he burned that city down to a cinder long time ago. Assassin was lazily dodging his outbursts, but she knew that job already was done. When bubbling remains of Assur disipated into the soil, she picked what was left of his grimoire, and walked away. This place was cleaned.

A silver disc of moon was hiding behind the clouds, as battle unfolded on a mount Arreat plateau. A giant goatman was brawling with a tattoed muscular warrior. Their strengths were almost equal, as they both were disarmed. A warrior took a strong grip on goatman's neck, while he did the same to him. They both were trying hard to break the grip, not letting go of each other at the same time. A moon appeared for a moment, blinding and scorching a goatman a bit. Barbarian seized his advantage by getting a firm grip and performing a skillful throw. Goatman was waving his hands and hooves chaotically, and his right hoof struck barbarian in the face. Warrior staggered fir a second of two, and hurried to his armaments, while hastily looking back and noticing that the goatman has already regained his conscience and is hurrying to his staff himself. The goatman took a hold on his staff and laughed like a hyena. Warrior growled through his teeth. Goatman fiercely swung his staff, and yellowish sparkles flew from it's tip. Barbarian was standing still and calm. When the collision with spirit was imminent, he waved his shield and shattered the magical wisp to a puff of smoke.
The goatman smirked, and started chanting. Blood, bones and corpses from the ground started to float and assemble into golems of flesh. They were plentiful, and in a matter of seconds barbarian was facing twenty ghouls and a goatman, grinning maliciously.
The full moon appeared in all its beauty. Silver light fell onto the plateau. Goatman growled and cast a swift protection spell. But he was barely able to finish it. The bright silver light outlined pieces of shining armor behind the barbarian. They were the fallen ancient nephalem spirits, ancestors and elders, shamans and warriors. Everyone carried a huge sword and a shield.
Warrior unsheathed his sword, and risen it in the air. A thin lightning struck it, but no sparks were flying off the sword, as if lightning charged it. The warrior growled a fierce battle cry. It echoed a thousand times, as if every spirit behind him growled in unison. The warrior charged, and spirits behind him charged as well.
It was quickly over. The only thing that was left untouched on a plateau was the moonlight, following the footsteps of a lone warrior.

It took him a minute to burn all the corpses that were lying on the ground. He wasn't expecting to find them alive anyway, but a feeling of sorrow stung his heart yet again. Thankful for him performing an ancient pagan rite, Tiarna Dulra, the nature goddess, sent a soothing wave to heal his wounds and rejuvenate his spirit. He smiled, opened his bag, and took a small reddish fruit in his hand. After contemplating for a moment, he took a bite of a magical fruit. Chewing and swallowing, he felt a little soreness in his throat, but he got used to that feeling long ago - he knew, that his body was hardening. That was the nature of Glor-An-Fhaidha berries, enchanted by Mother Nature herself. He carefully picked the huge seed out of remaining fruit, dug a small hole with his nails, and planted the seed to thank Mother for her gift. Finishing that, he unfastened his leather vest and started to rub remains of fruit into studded leather. A thin layer of moss grew on it. Druid squeezed the fruit to stain the blank spots with remaining juice, and put the peel onto the small bump of dirt where the seed was planted. He was ready.
The gates of Kurast, half-eaten by surrounding jungle, half-beaten down by frustrated demons, greeted him. He spotted three slender figures, walking aimlessly before the gates, as if they weren't allowed into the city itself. Druid unsheathed his dagger and took a battle stance. Approaching carefully, he was swinging it from left to right with a distinct sound. He wasn't hiding, he came there to fight. Thin figures bumped into each other, staggered and finally noticed him. A wave of flame detached from their hands and flew onto the druid. He rose his shield and withstood the onslaught. His body, hardened by divine fruit, was almost unharmed by the blow. He went on, swinging his dagger unskillfully from left to right. He wanted to fight them in his true form. Fire was raining on him, but he shrugged it off, every spell, one by one. And when his hand could reach them, three fast swings were all it took for slender figures to crumble down.
Suddenly, the corpse of the tallest one launched itself into the air and bursted in myriads of bright yellow sparks.
Druid stepped back. He wasn't expecting this. Hundreds of hungry screeches and growls reached his ears. He knew they were going to eventually be here, and he picked the only right decision. He threw himself on all fours and started slowly changing his shape. His fingers grew together to make huge nails, his back started to grow a massive tail, his head hid itself under a thick bony carapace his back started to grow enormous spines. Suddenly a pack of greenish monsters ran through a gate. They saw agonizing creature, and rushed to it, wanting to crush it, to break its bones, to drain its blood. Druid wasn't seeing them, but he heard them. There was no way to intensify shapechanging process, so he concentrated on it. His armor melted into his body, even his trusty dagger seemed to be absorbed, giving his shape to spines on druid's back.
Monsters almost approached him, they were raging and screaming, they were on verge of fighting between themselves, and right before the moment fastest monster jumped onto the druid, he finished his transformation, and extended his spikes into direction of jumping monster, impaling him. Other monsters seemed unimpressed, and went on with running towards druid. He arched his back, and threw himself into the air, standing on his feet, and after his spines took the optimal amplitude, he smashed onto the ground, and the strange thing happened. Spines were flying from his back, but there was so many of them it seemed unreal. They grew, they were thrown at monsters, they grew back - it all seemed like a danse macabre of quill spikes and corpses of impaled demons. After all demons were dead, druid raised his right claw, and searing flame ate all the corpses. He wasn't going to bury their corpses, and he saw their souls flying away, dripping with all the remaining life they had. Druid inhaled the air, sucking some droplets into his enormous mouth. Tiarna Dulra thanked him again for making the soil fertile with demonic ashes. Druid barked angrily - he couldn't express his feelings any other way. He advanced into the ancient ruins...

Thanks. My english is much worse than I think, but I will try to keep it smart.

I just got a daydream of a promotional video of this kind during a nap, and tried to record it. I missed several things, that I had to make up during posting, but it was quite detailed nevertheless. The only concept I didn't saw in my dream was a necromancer of any kind. All other characters got a small showcase.
