I like to give new ideas about places, characters and bestiary…
Dear Blizzardd, if you like my ideas you are totally free to take it….for me is a honor….
Some places : I think that are very interesting the land of the Amazons and a necrocity of Necromancers….and beaches and sea monsters….¡ and the stomach of a giant demon ¡….
Some bestiary :
Siren: varieties : siren (blue), lamia (green), sea witch (red), deep darkness (black)
Ogre: varieties : ogre (brown), troll (green), macabre giant (red),ice giant (blue)…they can have a similar appearance of The Butcher…
Manticore : ¡ a exceptional enemy ¡
Cannibal barbarians ,savage amazons, corrupted heroes….
Macabre surprise : you can open a chest and a lot of blood and a hungry skull jump for bite you….
A new Diablo…¡ a giant flying dragon ¡
The Undead: Is Aidan the hero of Diablo 1, he returned from the death by necromantic experiments…(similar to his father,Leoric)...the Amazon of Diablo 2 was his secret love,she descent to the hells for rescued his soul …. And ,for love, when she defeat Diablo she robbed the corpse of Aidan and put a false body for the funeral…she buried him near her home for visit his tomb every day….but when the Amazon went to kill Baal, necromantic demons takes the bones of Aidan …… Now Aidan have to use his dark habilities for destroy the new demoniac minions and found his dear Leah…. –A special mission: He found the phantom of his loveled Amazon that need help, she try to rescued him but is dead and his corpse is now a beautiful but horrible undead…Aidan must save her soul and kill her zombie and the necromantic demons…. And he can found the zombies of the others heroes, if he defeat them their phantoms recompense him with part of their souls…¡ he win some of their skills ¡
Appearance: a skeleton with some armor pieces and a hole in the skull ( for the soul stone of Diablo )
Special skills : necromantics arts,create skeletons,enchanted zombies,resist some weapons or magic, absorb life or maná witch each death (with this is no necessary the life balls that the dead enemies drop),socket skull (you can put a magical stone or rune in the hole of the skull)…….
The Khazra demon: He is a renegade of a Khazra clan of demons….his ambition is enormous,he wants the throne of Diablo…and he think that if he find Leah he can win his ambitions….He is a brutal barbarian but have a secret good heart….¿can a demon find redemption?.....small secret : he was killed in Tristam and resurrected 20 years after…¡ Aidan killed him in Tristam ¡
-A special mission: kill all members of his clan…..
Appearance : horns, dark hair and skin…. very strench and some sadic….

When in Diablo 2 Tristam was destroyed and the soul of my hero (Aidan acording to Diablo3) was defeat by the monster I cried during weeks ( I was a child…)…¿why this series have a sad end…?...i will be very happy if Aidan returns ….or if he and Leah (or their souls) have a happy end….
The Sin eater : a dark wizard that can eat the sins and powers of their enemies…¡ and he/she can transformed in the demon that he kill ¡
The Tamer or Beast master : he can dominate monsters and minor demons and give them orders….
And their land can be fantastic….the coast of Santuary….dark but beautiful beaches…..
Cain said that the Butcher is created by parts of other demons…..¿ What if we could find bones and pieces of demoniac meat for made our own Butcher ?
Cerberus, hydras, hellhounds, Medusas, chimeras, golems(stone, armors, mud, sand, ice/water, fire), viper plants, chaos knights/death knight (D1), ninjas (kidding), minor reapers, demon dualist/ ghost duelist, head hunter, horsemen/horses, cross road demons, possessed weapons, tooth fairies(?), raiders, assassins,
dualist, druids, sand raiders/pirates/bandit, reapers, summoners, samurais?, demon spawn/human or angel/human.
It would be like playing the game from Diablos perspective.
Steam punk may be too far off genre-wise but I saw another thread and someone asked for act 5 to take place in a transylvanian Westmarch with clockwork horrors and undead and blood demons and vampires. This could be worked out a little like steampunk with the clockwork theme? Throw in some alchemy and its a good mix.
Small humoculous constructs, gargoyles and small flying imps... Pools of chemicals rising as poison blobs, metal scarecrows discharging massive lightning attacks, brazier-riddled golems with fire attacks, walking suits of armor, massive walls attacking you (like acidspitters on the walls in desolate sands caves) revealing a hidden passage behind them when killed, living chests eating greedy adventurers (some revenge from the many dead goblins!), more skeletons from barrels, more zombie bears from the woods, vampires flying in unattackable and changing into form behind you having vampiric affix and bleed damage (ofc!), demons made of blood, when dying they spatter the whole room/corridor/countryside in red goo and they can phase shift like the big beasts in act 3 towers.
Any good Vaneras (not a girl!)? :-P
Can't fault you for trying, but I doubt that Blizzard wants to "Go in that direction" with the game.
