DOTA 2 – Hero Lore – Sniper


Deep in the mountainous valleys of Knollen,
where sun almost never shines, lays a small and very special village. The folk have survived
by hunting the strange, cliff-dwelling steepstalkers above their village—killing them from a
distance and collecting their carcasses where they fell. They respected the art of shooting
above anything else. If you were born in such village, your first toy would not be a wodden
horse or sword, but a small and fully functional rifle.
Kardel Sharpeye was born in such village. He trained hard since he was a small boy,
becoming one of the best shooters among these strange folk for whom projectile weapons are
but another appendage, and to shoot is as natural as to touch. Sharpeye was respected
and adored by his fellow villagers, but he had yet to wait for a day of his full glory.
On his day of summoning, when he was to gain full standing in his village, Sharpeye took
the ancient test: a single shot from the valley floor to strike a beast down from the cliffs.
To miss was to be dishonored. He was preparing for this day for his whole life, so he felt
no fear and was sure in his success. With his entire village standing vigil, Sharpeye
took his shot… There was a loud explosion, then a few seconds
later a steepstalker fell. Kardel felt a strange feeling in his chest, he could not feel happiness
after this great milestone.This was HIS day. The crowd was cheering his name and celebrating,
but for some reason he could not rejoice with them. Something was wrong.
His feelings proved to be right very soon. As soon as the carcas was collected, the village
grew silent, for the elders found that the bullet had pierced its glittering central
eye then fallen to be clenched in the steepstalker’s mandibles. This ominous sign was the literal
opening of a dark prophecy, foretelling both greatness and exile for the gunman who made
such a shot. Kardel had to leave his village within a few
hours, a village that was his only home since he was born. Friends that were once playing
with him for hours were now unkown people to him. He did not know where to go and what
to do, only that exile was his single destiny. While packing his things, he was thinking
about his life and could not shake a feeling that everything was just an illusion. A mear
introducion to his new life, a real life outside the village walls.
For some reason, he found a sense in all this and welcomed his new destiny without any fear,
even after hearing the village doors closing behind him or seeing the mountains for the
last time. He walked for days, without a goal. However, deep in his heart he felt a strange
energy that was keeping him alive and diligent. He learned to trust his feelings and follow
his heart. In a certain way, Sharpeye the Sniper was thus, by his own skill, condemned
to make his way apart from his people and unwelcome back among them until he has fulfilled
the remainder of the prophecy by attaining legendary stature on a field of battle.

  1. Oh man why isit that people keep complaining?

    Two things:
    Why make too much of your own ideas to edit the lore and it's off the topic
    OR
    Why are you sticking to the lore is so boring

    People, please. Grow up.
    Anyw, good job to D2PTV for making all the lores ^^ Appreciate it and make MEEPO lore!! I'm dying to see it!

  2. It's still good, and good thing that Sniper isn't alone seeing his cousins Tinker and Clockwerk are there with him.

  3. No one it's criticizing your drawing abilites, but the voice this guy has it's terrible for telling Lore's, he shows no feeling in his voice or commitment towards the story at all, he is awful, the first guy was epic, such a shame….

  4. HE SHOOTS THE THINGS BUT SHOT THE THINGS TOO WELL SO HIS FRIENDS HATE HIM.

    NOW HE MUST GO SHOOT THINGS WELL.

  5. All i wanted was something like u did to the first lore Beastmaster . The part about wolves didnt change the lore much but still made it more exiting

  6. Idk why people complain about new narrator … i actually like him a lot, hope he stays troughout this whole series ;3

  7. did you just call him a pubstomper???? all you needed to do is get close to him and dust him andd thats it! hes dead and has nowhere to go or run cause if your team is properly asembled than hes nothing but a a dead midget. same goes for drow.

  8. But in low level pubs they don't know this, and there is no team until 40 mins in where everyone stands on the same tile and charges down mid. He is a very low level pubstomper.

  9. otherworldly heroes please… πŸ™ here I'll give a clear suggestion this time how about Elder Titan? He is the reason that existence was shattered in two, the reason that there now exists multiple worlds, and he is apparently so old and his name is long forgotten since he is just "Elder Titan, The Worldsmith"

  10. Maybe you should use some new pens or increase the contrast for a darker black however I think this is my favourite video since the VO change, liking it guys!

  11. Dont get why would you get hated for your drawing skills or people disliking the lore videos for its original lore,even though you try to modify it to be better. I subscribed to the channel since the first lore video was out, and I enjoy every single lore video since that. Thank you for dedication and keep it up,you're doing great!

  12. well the thing is you didnt add anything at all to this one, it was just the original lore dragged out, not like all the other ones, those are really good.

  13. you gotta pick some interesting heros. One that you just look at and your like "man whats his story". like tiny, magnus, and queen on pain.

  14. A little more lore after what valve already set out would offend no one. build onto the lore, but don't cross it.

  15. Whatever sniper you may have been through some shit in your life but as a representative of the African American Dota 2 players, your still a bitch in my book! Nothing more than a less versatile quickscoper out of COD.
