BT2 Lore topical priorities

With BT2 on the horizon, I'd like to try to get some written content for some of the main lore elements, like the towns and main characters. I've yet to add the written map content that makes reference to them, but the nice thing is once writeups get added and potential lore items linked, the spider...

Re: Novellas

Very interesting input Drool! Thanks for all that. I'm certainly not as up to date on game lore by memory as I should be... I'm hoping the lore writeups will help with that, especially for DK and TOF. I feel like I want to allow some sway for retcons since it's been so long, and it's more like a reb...

Re: Magic Mouth of Lore initiative! - Read First

I will shortly be adding a reference page to list off existing Lore entries that I've marked as incomplete - content in the process of being compiled and written. That'll be a good starting point for anyone who's able to offer some literary wisdom!

Re: Novellas

I'm not sure if I want to print them and read them, or drop'em on the phone and read them more conveniently :P
Tough part is finding the time. I haven't actually heard anything good OR bad about them yet, only vague "interesting" type comments that could go either way, lol

Magic Mouth of Lore initiative! - Read First

Hello everyone, This is a brief introductory post to help you understand what's going on with this whole "Lore" thing. As we know the Bard's Tale universe has so many bits and pieces, breadcrumbs that came from, well, nowhere really - just there for stuff to absorb as we dungeon crawl, solve puzzles...

Re: Working Out the Lore

Awesome, I'll be posting a general guideline for Lore posts in this forum, hopefully streamline some of the content generation and get stuff up asap. I'm going to focus on maps for BT2 and 3, as those typically generate the plaintext searchable content for the Mouth before the Lore is explicitly wri...

Re: Greetings From Olde London Towne

What do you mean by interactive? Right now the BT1 maps have a dynamic and static view. They'll only be as interactive as the HTML versions. That is, mouseovers to highlight connections between the legend and map icons, spoilers, etc.

Hellohello!
Yes indeed, another little corner of the interweb for BT fans to echo chamber :) lol

Right now my focus is on BT2/3 maps and LOADS of lore topics!
