The invaders are, well, invaders. They came here for a fight, either for or against the High Lords.
The people of Core Earrh are used to Heroes. Even before the Storm, they had real evidence that, "When the fan gets the crap, a hero arises." Therefore, the general public won't be falling into depression the way our people would. Most Ords will go on with their lives with the "minor" adjustments required.
Well, I made that point on page 1.
But think about it this way: Core Earth has always had larger than life heroes. It's not the Earth we live in. It's the world where Die Hard is a documentary. I don't think this would be a big deal for them. I think before the war, they probably had heroes as celebrities and now they have some even more celebrities to look up to, to hate, and to gossip about. But I don't think ords are self-aware enough to get a complex over it. It's just how it is, and that really hasn't changed, even if Storm Knights are a new phenomenon, and I see them as not particularly ambitious.
Big thread, I know. Obviously I agree with you, great minds and all that.
