Review of chapter "The Assassin And The Sorceress" from Iceflame
I'm not sure where to point out all the extremely numerous ways you've butchered canon Diablo information. Starting with the fact there are NO Assassins that are MALE that use weaponry. There is indications they have sorcerers that make magical equipment, but that's as far as their tolerance goes. That alone makes this story insulting to me, as I love to play Diablo II, and to see how it's being twisted here hurts in ways I doubt you will ever understand.
I won't even try to list how off I regard your portrayal of EVERYONE, as to do so would require more words than are currently in this story. Character bashing of ANY kind is to be avoided unless the story specifically requires one of the canon characters be a villain; but the slant is far too steep in this story for there to be any justification.
Incidently, I will thank you for telling readers you were going to change SOME things, it's just the number of things you've changed has altered the flavor too much for me to honestly say I'm reading a Buffy/Diablo II/D&D crossover, as the elements you're supposedly using from Diablo II are so watered down it's not funny.
Comments from author:
Yes, yes, I know, it sucked. Trust me, when I wrote then, I couldn't have cared less about anything - not sure why I leave it up beyond the fact to remind me how bad my writing can get.

i never pictured Xander as an assasin type character but you pulled it off beautifully.
can't wait to read more of this... are xander's children going to make an appearance in buffy's world? would be cool to see a paladin running round sunnydale, or to see giles face when he has to deal with two Xander's lol
hope you update soon.

That was fun and informative - I think I'll have to get the Diablo games and give them a try.
