As there isn’t any Lore Forum yet, I’ve decided to start a thread that will be dedicated to the facts and speculations surrounding the lore of Heroes of Newerth.
Lore discussions, although usually ignored and underappreciated by most gamers these days contribute to the creative designs of the game. Through lore-related discussions new content such as Heroes, Maps and the like are created without things veering off from the entire game’s feel (as evident by the previous Artillery issue which was now remedied)
I would highly appreciate it if people were to contribute to the topic with their own lore discussions or speculations, and if in my posts I do make some mistakes, then I would love to be corrected.
Heroes of Newerth
What, Where, When, Why?
“Heroes of Newerth” is the name given to the 3rd chapter of the ongoing wars of Newerth, set a number of years after the events of Savage 2: A Tortured Soul.
The setting revolves around the land of Newerth, a huge continent inhabited by the surviving humans and creatures after the events of “The Scar” that tore the old earth asunder.
After their defeat in the hands of the Malphai during “A Tortured Soul” the Legion of Man and the Beast Horde’s leaders: Jereziah and Ophelia called for a ceasefire between their two warring factions and formed an alliance to counter the Malphai threat. From then on they were called “The Legion” and they referred to the daemons of hell ,and those who side with them, as “The Hellbourne”.
The Legion is composed of the Legion of Man led by Jereziah and the Beast Horde led by Ophelia. Along with the core ranks are various personalities throughout Newerth and afar that aid the cause of the Legion to stop the ongoing Hellbourne Threat.
As embodiments of the negative energies absorbed by the world called daemons, The Hellbourne has no true leader, however there are many entities that rule over the lesser demons to an extent. One example is the previous leader of the Legion, Maliken who has been corrupted by his enthusiasm for dark magic. Joining the daemons are fanatics, slaves and priests of the daemons as well as persons of various reasons.
The information that follows here are mere tidbits and speculation that can be expanded later on, note that these are by no means written to replace the existing lore of each Hero, but simply for clarification, simplification, expansion and speculation.

This section of this Lore Thread will be for examples of concepts that can be fished out from the lore of Newerth
One of the Moon Warriors, asides their Queen as a new Hero.
Another member of the beast sect that Emerald Warden hails from.
A map built around the concept of Newerth’s savannas, mid wars would be great for this as the savanna is bare and an open field (less sight obstruction like trees.
A shaman with swamp/marsh-related skills from the Wild Cults
A Member of "The Sacred Order"
Some key places that can be used somehow, be it as basis for items, maps or even modes: Arasunia and Iron City
Newerth does not seem to refer to the entire planet, but to a large continent where surviving civilizations and creatures roam. This is made clear by Berzerker and Valkyrie's lore that they came from places off the coast of Newerth to the north.
Wait, HoN has lore? That's like saying LoL has lore...
On a serious note ths was actually pretty interesting, thanks :-)
Yes, HoN has lore. Even DotA 2 has lore.
XD aaaaand don't get me started on LoL's lore. So much lore already that you could make a Trilogy of Movies.
You're welcome and thanks for reading. I want to let HoN's lore become more realized and compiled, that way new ideas and concepts will be made much closer to Newerth and not just randomly made out of whim.
A much clearer lore to go by = Much easier for ideas to come into mind.
Think one key point to address is which heroes are individuals and which are units.
For example: There's only one :jera: and , yet there are multiple , , and on.
Also, i'm quite interested in that cult thing that was mentioned several times. How many different branches of religion are there in Newerth? You have one that reveres Sol, and then you have ones for , and so on. There are some speculations in your post, but they seem to make sense anyway.
One interesting fact I found while reading through the item lores (yes, there's such thing), is the name of being mentioned in the one for Elder Parasite.
Also speaking of , since he also comes from the north, I wonder if there's any relation between him and .
Aye, that is one keypoint that I actually addressed. If you noticed some of the facts state certain heroes in their plural "Scouts", "Pyromancers", etc.
As well as titles such as "Pollywog Priest", "Martyr" being made clear to be a title for a single person of a certain level in their group.
Interestingly, most of the religions revolve around Sol, yet a lot of the cults point all the way to "The Prophet"
Also, yep yep yep. Besides them coming from the north, they're also of Celtic/Nordic origin. Berzerker based around Vikings and Valkyries based around Shield Maidens + The Valkyries of norse mythology.
Newerth does not refer to the entire planet, but to a large continent where surviving civilizations and creatures roam. This is made clear by Berzerker and Valkyrie's lore that they came from places off the coast of Newerth to the north.
As in like Middle Earth?
There are a lot of places mentioned in the hero lores. You might want to make a separate list for them and include where each hero's from.
You are aware that ckmo has been making an ongoing lore for quite a while now if I recall he actually asked one of the creators and got all of the information to make a real story. A very good read just so you know.
Very nice, good to see someone taking initiatve to do a huge project such as this. Very interesting read, though I feel that a space between each hero would be good for readability, and also putting each category in a spoiler to make it less of a wall of text.

I am well aware of that and am one of the followers of his stories. However what I am doing and what he is doing are different things. He is creating new events and stories with his own vision of the Newerth lore; whilst I am simply gathering and giving information regarding the base lore, and from there create discussions that will open up new concepts and ideas based on discussion and speculation, as with other game lore discussions.
In a way, you could say that while CKmo is creating or continuing the story of Newerth by himself. While I am opening up the opportunity for the community to weave together the threads that make up the Newerth universe as a whole.
I'll continue on with the remaining Hellbourne Heroes Tomorrow. Right now, I have to get some rest.
I also put the Hero Facts in Spoilers, as well as added spaces between them for easy readability (Thanks for reminding me Envisionise)
But before I'll go rest, I'll leave these questions for Speculation Discussion:
Was it Hellbringer who fascinated and tainted Maliken with Dark Magic?
Who is this Prophet and why is he mentioned in almost every cult and religion?
Does Wildsoul live in the Forests of Caldavar?
Are the world trees that we see in game the actual world tree? Or are they simply parts and extensions of the actual thing?
Is the Hellbourne Meatball made out of Pork or Beef?
Inb4 Artesia's lover being resurrected to become a new hellbourne int hero. What are the chances that Artesia knows nothing about the culprit? Initially I thought the avatar was Artesia's lover, but I could see a new hero being created base on this story
