Loresplosion II

2014-12-20 - Nyroth

I decided to do some more lore revision tonight. I had to stop partway through Neritum, but I thought I’d share the initial results. I also recently posted up another lore recruitment thread; we should be getting some reinforcements for our intermission lore team shortly, which will help us to finish up the rest of this, including the two issues of the Herald that we’d like to fit in.

For reference, there will be about 22 Nyroth lore updates when all is said and done, including Lore Event VI.

Yeah, I know: Why didn’t we just say there were SIX islands?
