Venril, and his Domini, will 'live' as long as thier phylacteries are intact.

though I have learned a bit more from beta on the happenings in ethernere...and it still seems to leave it up in the air wether or not FV will be restored.

Drinal doesn't seem the kind to not correct errrors in the cycle of life and death (like someone dying before thier time due to being ripped from thier body thanks to an unstable force/plane) but he also might just consider what's done as done.

Im thinknig along the lines that drinal being the god of death means he is ripping people's souls against the natural order ether to warn mortals that there is trouble in ethernere or he is bringing them there to aid him in some fight for power over ethernere or both.

it's also stated that people from the past and present will attempt to mend the ages end this might mean ether people are plucked from their timelines at their prime from all EQ realities or drinal reaps everyone and the ages end battle/mending is attempted in ethernere along with ppl from the god's planes.

okay a little more spoiler:

Drinal was not a god until recently. Ethernere was not a 'plane' like say Plane of Water, but more like Ultera.

When the gods left norrath in EQ2, and when they had thier own issues in EQ1, the souls go to ethernere but couldn't go to thier dieties plane. Some souls choose to stay. either they made a deal with Drinal, or they are actively hiding out form thier God's call/ignoring it.

but all that soul energy built up until Ethernere became a full fledged plane. when it did that, Drinal, who runs the place, Ascended to a Diety.

Now enter the deaths of Rallos in EQ2, and Cazic in Eq1. Ethernere was never meant to hold to powers of the gods. but rallos and Cazic both saw a 'get out of jail/void free' card. Rallos was trying to manifest himself in Ethernere through the Ogres. Cazic infected the realm with fear, and it trying to find a way to drag EQ2 Cazic to Ethernere to absorb him and thus restore himself.

War and Fear permeating Ethernere, which adjusts itself to the perceptions of those within it, can't handle the stress. it's overloading it, and the Harrowing Horde are being driven insane by it. Drinal himself is supposedly in a similar state and a lot of pain included, becuase tearing Ethernere tears Drinal.

Odds are right now it seems Ethernere/Drinal is ripping souls in a desperate bid to keep it/himself intact. which could mean once he's restored/able to manage the plane again, he'll return those he ripped from the Prime Plane to thier rightful lives/fates.

if Ethernere collapses..it's bad news. so yeah we are fighting the fight to stop that. but Ages End/Kera isn't part of that. KEra is very much alive, very much on Norrath, and Norrath is where we will deal with him. whcih is why FV states she won't be there for that fight..as she is in Ethernere and can't aid i the confronation destined to happen if she is.

"Really it seems the 'legendary' figures that may be spearheading the coming battle with Kerafyrm will be Mayong, the Duality, possibly FV, Lucan and Antonia, (through the efforts of Qeynos/Freeport) maybe Tserrina and Yelniak if you count him as a legendary figure."

Only of key faction that came about in eq2 then disappeared is Order of Marr , What are they up too their secert crusade back fired in their face just as Mithaniel Marr came back into play. I think they will be the key part in the battle vs Kerafym. Unless SOE doing a failcom put a bunch of time and effort in them and their lore to just place them on a shelf to collect dust. They played a  key role in alot of major storyline quests. So where are they now any Devs care to enlighten me or did they die out when Vhalen left.?

Interesting, indeed.

So, that's probably why the amygdalans in Upper Eidolon Jungle said something like that to me...
