Don't get me wrong here but how do we know those are official Newerth lore texts and not something fan written?
Noticing the late dates, the website as which the content is posted and the name 'Ismael' as in 'IsmaelVera in one of the texts made me a little curious.
And why are you not allowed to provide the actual documents?
The writer is Mark Yohalem.
And yes, these are "fan" written, by me. I mentioned that. The "story" texts are written by me to fit into a canonical Newerth universe, as a pet project when I wanted to do something to while away my time. Ignore those.
The background reading texts are compiled by me, these are the ones you should be reading. I was given some of the originals to read by the writer, but I'm not allowed to post any of those. Anything you get from me can only be the things I've been allowed to restate in my own words. The three links I posted covering those topics are facts.
As for the the fact that these are fan written, doesn't mean they deviate canonically or are any less viable; I generally gave the original writer my texts for his approval (at least, to see whether or not they were correct and fit into the Newerth world). Pretty much, anything you ask me I will know of it if the original texts covered it.
It's just that any scientific mind would rebel when presented with interpretations of a collection of evidence they cant examine for themselves.
Listening to an authorative figure in the field would probably help, an S2 employee dealing with the lore.
is it that S2 are planning or are already selling the information in books and so therefore wants people to pay for the information? Because otherwise I'm having trouble understanding why it be kept classified for the rest of us who is to enjoy the lore.
I could understand that some elements be kept secret as a mean to create a mist of mystery, but basic information like that...
I do appreciate that you spend time replying me.
