<DIV><FONT size=2> <P>Interesting that you place the invasion of the Nexus, the end of teleportation, and the end of the Rallosian campaign to have been only 50 years prior to the start of EQ2.</P> <P>From my reading of the original EQ2 lore stories I placed the time more like 450 to 300 years in the past. </P> <P>The invasion of the Nexus and the severing of the teleportation Spires / Rings was Zek’s opening move in their campaign. The timing on the story seem to place these events close to when the Gods stopped talking to the races of Norrath about 3278 A.N. (about 540 years in the past). The reading of the Avatar’s efforts to organize the defense of Qeynos and Freeport also places these events close to that time.</P> <P>The Overlord’s acquisition of Zek’s sword (at the end of the final battle) was what enabled him to obtain the immortality and power he desired. At the time of that battle he was still mortal, though under the influence of magical longevity, that also places the time far closer to EQ1 time than 50 years past.</P> <P>Other than that the time line seems dead on.</P></FONT></DIV>

<DIV>We all know that several points of EQlive and *ESPECIALLY EQOA* lore conflict with EQ2 and each other, but now's not the point to argue that.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Is it safe to say that EQ2 has taken Lost Dungeons of Norrath into consideration as a factor of lore?</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Because Miragul's Menagerie reveals that Miragul lives for roughly 1200 years<STRONG> *BEFORE*</STRONG> he thought about the concept of using necromancy to extend his life further.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>This little bit of lore kinda conflicts with the Erud thing. There are other sources in EQlive that indicate that the Erudites have lived on Odus for at least 3000 years.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I can't cite any sources but I know they're out there.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Anyway.
