How do you view Aetolia?

RhyotRhyot BloodlochMember Posts: 375 ✭✭✭✭
Something got my mind spinning this morning.

1) Are vnums considered OOC or IC?

2) How do you view the world of Aetolia? Do we live on a flat plane or do we live on a round planet?

I kinda see it as a planet and Sapience (Aetolia) is just a continent, and the other continents are the other IRE games.

    vNums are considered in game as something similar to map coordinates (the Explorers define them and understanding their logic can be a little tricky, but it is handwaved as something along the lines of latitude and longitude).

    Though, Are the other games within our solar system? For example when Niuri went and got herself stuck off the prime material and in the ether (this was in the way way back), could she have conceivably, accidentally discovered another planet-game? I ask this because of the break off from Achaea in our original lore.

    Again, if they were in the solar system, we'd have given you spaceships to go shoot them! Or, Starmourn would have come here and bombed us.

    There are actually hidden connections between ALL the IRE games, if you can find them... some are super hard, some not released, and some hidden in lore other games put out.

    My understanding of Aetolia came to me as an Achaea refugee. Where Varian was an intruder to the planet. Sarapis banished Varian to a mirror world created as Varian is an Usurper (Albedos spoilers maybe), who knows...but Varian wasn't a good dude in Achaea. He imprisoned Gods there, he did some shady stuff...and all we have in aetolia is "artifice" that covers up what really happened with Varian and creation here that is slowly bleeding out. (Not that I know any of this IC, but OOC wants to really find out if there is some weird crossover) That being said we have Gameverse evidence that Varian did NOT create aetolia....so I mean.

    But I have never had any proof that this lore existed as part of our lore, but Varian definitely exists in THEIR lore.

    @Oonagh I remember that. Achaean Varian was super bad.

    Kinda funny, Varian messed with my Achaean and I was a part of the whole story. Now I can be Varian!

    I remember finding some Sehal stuff during the proxy war, I think it was a book dropped by one of the imps, but it mentioned Minia and Vellis. Made me go 👀

    I love this entire thread, but never played any other IREs beyond Starmourn. The lore they have there surrounding Earth certainly has planted the seed that maybe Varian or the gods were a product of the mystery surrounding Earth's disappearance. Be they aliens or displaced from a shift that crossed parallel universes. I don't know!

    If I remember correctly, Yggdrasil exists in one or two other IRE games, right?

    I like little easter eggs like this. Cross-game lore, e.t.c.

    Well, in the Achaea/Aetolia case, it's less easter-eggy than most since Aetolia is explicitly a deliberate copy of Achaea (by Achaea lore)

    Well you know what they say ... You either die a hero, or you live long enough to become the villain.

    I've always seen the IRE games as more of a History of the same place. If at the beginning of Creation something different had happened each time.

    Kind of thing.

    And we, as the player base, are just thrown into random points in time during that sequences life span.

    Achaea is the beginning. People finding out about mystical powers and monsters and the like.

    Aetolia, the off shoot of Achaea. Where suddenly the day and night affect the people of the realm.

    And so on, and so on.

    Each one, the same thing. Just the butterfly effect at the beginning. Each tied together in someway, because in someway.... They are all the same.... In like the Multiverse kind of way. Not in like game play, or deep lore.... The games aren't the same.... You know what I mean.
