Still doesn't make figuring out the entire mess we have any easier... Mary's got very valid points tho, Flash&Zoom aside reasoning of why things happen is different from trying to piece them together coherently. I'm sure she understands why these things happened (we had so many story lines arcing over time and different devs hands in the cookie jar) .The entirety of trying to piece everything together has either become such a monumental task that even asking the devs to try and start tying stuff together would overwhelm them... if they were to try a dev(s) would need to work out: Anashti's continued plans under Sinking Sands in the Godkings Chamber(w/the Teir'dal reconstructed Ewer) Continue the story of Malkonis D'Morte since he survived the raid on the Freethinkers hideout Mayong/Ydal/Innorruuk ~saga, so much around that it's too much to mention Reen Rohen Theer, he's still chilling out in the Stonebrunt Highlands Searching for Lucan's ex-lover turned traitor Tayil N'Velex after she opened the void portals in Deathknell & later stole Soulfire. Kane Bayle, still upset at failing to kill Antonia and since he's an immortal spirit he's got the time to kill. Erolisi/Ullkorruuk saga - I'll give this one a pass since its more a V-day event story that as expected progresses a little each year. Lenya Thex, we know Lenya has accepted Mayong's kiss of vampirsm and started her (slower and less painful) transformation, Marcus Thex is a ~K'nundrum~ seeing as we're told by Gninja i think? that he survived and was stopped from being turned into a vamp, but in-game (which we are always told trumps ALL-other lore points per every dev ever) there is no way to stop his transformation and he comments "We are too late" and he feels "so cold'. His tranformation took place and he's now a vamp. Lenya even gives us old king Tearis' crown to give to a steward to find a new heir, maybe Fironia Vie since she's the queen's daughter but meh who knows. Talvis Thex, a few years since we seen him try and collaborate with the small pack of weaker vamps in Darklight Wood.(personal fave btw) Queen Cristanos' vie for power- a hint in the Freeblood documents of experimentation by Mayongs scholars hint that she "may" be being controlled by another entity since her voice is overlapped *shrugs* Trakanon being able to return to being a Sky blue Dragon from being undead and taking over the Ring of Scale (guess their all dead now tho since the old epics were like "umm go slay a dragon to finish the epic-i-ness of your weapon"! Xilania Nevagon Seraph of hate, has hidden ties to Lucan but is a half-elf as a Seraph of Hate in Nerak dubbya-tee-eff? Droags still assaulting the wall in the Overthere (Jarsath Wastes) even w/the dragons dead need new leadership Najena I suppose I can pass on this one to since she did discover a Rune of Theer and uncloaked different void towers using it and we rescue her so she may have decided to take things easy since then and since her cousin/family isn't as in-control over Neriak as it would appear. Bayden Cauldthorn once thought to be the primary suitor for Antonia as the circle of 5 (actually 10) wanted her to have offspring to continue the Bayle lineage, he was a Lordknight that found the portal to the shard of Love, haven't heard much of him since then. Floatilla of ships around the Isles of Refuge, those npc's have been in Qeynos and Freeport for quite a while so that blockade must be in need of some shore leave by now. The Ratonga/Roekillik underfoot escape/Caertex worshipping rodents still not sure if they're good or evil or what they wanted/intended to do. Master Yael's dead/defeated doesn't resonate hugely within the Norrathian world, but since he was the Underfoot Door Guardian you'd think panic would ensue. Bloodbeak & Capt. Siren I'm going to give this one a pass since Siren was used in the more recent adventures of Freeport with the now known as not-dead Foci Opal Darkbriar - These below haven't moved and probably won't as I assume the story lines are pretty much considered finished to the powers that be and/or aren't going to be looked at again in a while since the devs are focused on current content Everling still split into 3, the Book in Everling castle has still after 3 years not reset if a player answers the questions it asks incorrectly to allow a player to retry the answers Ancient/Ancestral Champions named the Ethernaughts still missing since the fight they had w/Anashti Deathfist Empire conveniently remembering to be stupid as not to retry and gain a war footing army or naval wise anywhere but Zek isle. Nagafen trying to help/use adventurers with their own plans to further their power. (I was dissapoint- to see him no used w/Vesspyr Isles since it was so clear that the situation was so close to the old KoS situations. Ralem Cristof no longer content in the Peacock Club is still perma-stationed in the human blood-cattle ranch that is Somborn Village even though the town has vamps for elders New Tunaria still xenophobic and still being eaten by vamps at night even though Mayong's been gone a while Kaladim the only dwarven city had its levels changed from 55-60ish to a lower tiered dungeon and the story there has been its overrun never to return it seem Valkyries all of them seem to be content in having their storyline be used as mostly fluffier zones such as the Christmas raid zone (and the Frostfanged isle one that I still don't really understand how it fit but meh. Bloodline Chronicles camps (Hand of Marr and Bretheren of Night) was finished after T'Haen was slain and the guild that did it got put into a small lore tidbit. The Bretheren of the Night were used again in DoF when the evil side had some agents in Living Tombs and they all get slaughtered but you would think that they would have some lore attached to the Freebloods seeing as the good side has a husband and wife team that are trying to deal with her vampism. *shrugs* BloodSabres still under Qeynos still acting as if they mean something to someone... Ingrid- Captian of the Far Dawn has been at Mara and in Timorous Deep for a while did she get killed in a quest or something? Tarinax the Destroyer forever locked in the vault of Deathtoll apaprently. Again these are just some of the stories now taking a backseat to the Duality-Twin Swords-Zek/Invasion-Kerafyrm story that's drenched us for the last 3 expacs since Velious/Age of Discovery/Vesspyr Isles. Making sense of these let alone figuring them all out in a timeline was a hard thing to do "someone" mentioned a universal timeline was made prior to EQ2 but I'm not sure if it's been followed. Weather or not it would help at this point is moot as it appears some powers that be have decided to take EQ2 in a different/new direction. I'd say after the Duality/Kerfyrm debacle ends.. lets wipe the slate clean of most of that and get back to a random adventuring group coming across a village needing defended from a gnoll pack. Sometimes planet ending world stories such as our current story fall into the "next big enemy" ala the horrid EQ1 Discord story arcs ... I just hope we don't have these certain "even more bigger" bosses keep coming back like a 2-bit Cobra Commander.
