How Deckard Cain's name came to be

If only I had a story as cool as this. Ever wonder how Blizzard came up with Deckard Cain in Diablo? Well wonder no more. See, a while ago Blizzard had a contest for a prize drawn randomly via a postcard. Yeah, they used postcards to determine prize winners back in the day.

So about 15 years ago, a father put his son's name on a postcard and sent it in. Time passed until 6 months later, a box arrived at the father's house. It was from Blizzard and a letter from Bill Roper. Inside were various Diablo items of fancy and the letter stating that the elder in Tristram is now his namesake.

Pretty cool little story and a nice little history to know. Now, let's get Diablo III in our hands and help young....err old Deckard out and defeat Diablo once again.
