I’m 80% sure the lore doc got some pretty big changes/additions made to it recently (as far as I can tell). I’m sure some of y’all noticed it already but I don’t think there’s been a forum thread on it yet? So I’ll just make this and put it all the big things that I could find. Again, I’m not sure how recently these changes were made but I’m pretty sure they’re relatively new.
Oh and here’s a link to the lore doc to check it out for yourself:
Right off the bat we now have Creation and spirit energy being put into the lore doc for the first time I think, and boy is it some JUICY stuff. There was that leaked(?) screenshot from Vetex from a bit ago that went into this info but it’s really cool seeing it officially.
Especially with how Creation and Chaos created the Titans/Gods to watch over the planet for some reason. Also I think this is the first time Titans have been mentioned in the lore doc?
I guess the War Ages aren’t canon anymore cause that section was replaced by this, which is actually really interesting in it’s own right. Especially since now we have an actual date for the timeline split of 100 AD.
That date is lowkey kinda weird though given the Romans had sort of assimilated the Greeks by that time (I think, it’s been a while since I’ve taken a world history class). So did the gods take on Roman forms at all? Poseidon and Zeus were still called exactly that in lore so I dunno… But more importantly, you know what that means?
JESUS MIGHT HAVE EXISTED IN THE ARCANE UNIVERSE
Idk if this change was recent or not but this section definitely didn’t say Durza learned how to combine the powers of Curses before. What does that even entail, is it just using 2 Curses at the same time or did he actually learn how to combine Curses? Also wtf does undoing a Curse mean, the Absorption Curse already undoes a Curse from another person so???
Anyway that finishes the big stuff I could find, what do y’all think of these updates?
And I’m sure some of you other lore savvy folks in the forums know the lore doc better than me so pls put down any other changes you might’ve noticed!
Seems like they really removed Durza’s name. Before this got updated, Durza’s name was stated to be from an existing novel, and that it was bound to change as a result. So was Alalea. Vetex wants to make this into a book or book series, so it makes sense he would want to change it so it doesnt look like he’s ripping off another’s story
Also, I dont think much of the lore of the “War Ages” changed such as the events and the wars that happened, just that theyre not gonna use that name it seems. Makes sense I guess
