Default Canonicity of CotFS Lore

With the "banning" of the lore of the RPG, most (almost 90%) of the lore of the Cult of the Forgotten Shadow is now "non-canon".

But, as an RPr, I would love to know what parts are most believable? Could my character still holding things like the Three Virtues? The revering to the Death? What you consider plausible and what not?

It's a good example of how prickly this denunciation can prove; the cult itself is as you said about 90% rooted in RPGdom, but its presence has extended into WoW and beyond too. Lightslayers have made a cameo, for example, and the entire cult had some lore added to it in the Warcraft magazine. It's even referenced in-game on occasion, like in some of the original Forsaken priest quests. That seems a little counter productive if its heart, history and inner workings aren't considered canon.

I'm tempted to say the cult is a good example of things being "incorporated into the game and official lore," but eh, it's a very easy thing to argue against. Which, in this case at least, is a huge shame.

True.

One in Darkshore, with no explanation for his title.

That is the only canon lore we have.

Not really. If anything, it just says that Forsaken can't use the Light, which was debated and disproved to hell and back.

Eh, I thought it had a little more muscle than that. What a pity.

Ah real pity. But, i would want to know your thoughts about the Three Virtues. Could they be more "canon" than, for example, the revering to Death, considering the cult now have a growing population of living members?

Cult of the Forgotten Shadow is still canon, because the official magazine #4 had mentioned it and expanded its origination.

Well, at least I'll say the parts in RPG books are non-canon now, like it says most of the cult members are forsakens, which now are false.

I know that... The think is, what grafments you think Blizzard will make canon? What "non-canon" fragments are the truest?

Well we know the actual "cult" was formed by the Forsaken even though the teachings were not.
