Watching Outlander for the first time. At the end of each episode they have some code word that was part of some contest. S01E07 code word was Verra. So expect Highlander Dwarves.
My big lore question is WHY are these races looking to settle a new world.Is it a 'push' factor from their old world ...or is it a 'pull' factor of hey a untouched new world with resources. The picture background though here shows some sort of calamity occurring so Im hoping it is a push factor that the races are escaping from, this would make much more sense for me anyway.oh so many questions rattling in my head!
Timeline is inexact. 10,000 years ago there was a great calamity on Verra that was causing life to become corrupted. What hints we have so far was some sort of god pantheon war the the uncorrupted gods lost. They raised the 4 portals for their various followers and sent them to a new world, then closed the portals. Those left behind or didn't get through the portal in time fled underground to avoid the corruption and become the Tulnar over 1000s of years. The races like the avians whose god perhaps was either on the corruption side or lost in the war, did not open a portal to the new world. Those races become the corrupted "monster" races we have seen so far. Over 10,000 years the effects of the corruption war lessen, but does not go away completely. The gods that fled with their followers to the new world pop back over and think "Yeah, we should bring everyone back and give it another go." They cause the old 4 portals to rise from the ruins where they had been buried and on the new world, the gateways fire up. Either through direct communication with their gods, or portents and signs, or just plain curiosity, people start to go through the portals and set up base camps in the 4 areas. The Tulnar are intrigued by all the activity on the surface, since raising the portals was probably felt down in the safe areas of the underrealm and start their own camp to prepare their people to venture to the surface. Boom, there is your origin story.
why not we make the lore as the game progresses ? sure have some kind of Goddish based thingy but actually have a player solo kill a low lvl Dragon let's say then he gets to go on game lore and we all read his story just saying...oh!, and about races i'de be ready for something different such as unestablished living entitys paving their way to titles.....ok i'm done i'll go now before i get anybody mad,,i know i'm new here
Zastro saidThat wouldn't work because every server will be progressing differently from each other. There would be too many different versions of the story. It would keep someone employed full time cataloging each servers feats in cinematic form but can you imagine the flood of new players when the MMORPG community realized they could end up the immortalized characters of their own virtual worlds story!
Except that Lore story lines only recreate the penultimate actions that influence the entire course of a world not the death of unnamed kobolds.
