Previously, each expansion had it's own website which featured some lore for that expansion.The new website looks great, but I haven't been able to find any Rise of Kunark lore, am I missing something?Thanks! SMILEY

Only seen in-game lore myself from doing those 2-3 quests on the docks in Freeport/Qeynos.  It is kinda nice that there is a 2nd-3rd hidden quest that you can do.  Unfortunately I really haven't learned much from the lore myself. SMILEY

I know what you mean, but this time around, they've been very reluctant to update the site with any new info. Not even movies or screenshots.

All we know is that after the Rallosian War, Venril Sathir took advantage of the gods withdrawing thier influences from Norrath to unite the Iksar race into a new Sebilisian Empire. Claiming himself a god, he declared heresy on any iksar who lived outside of his rule, and would not allow them to worship Cazic Thule or any other god. The Rending, and later, the Shattering, had the biggest impact on Kunark more than anywhere else on Norrath. Cabilis has been completely abandoned, now sinking further and further into the Lake of Ill Omen that swallowed it up. Huge chunks of Luclin- 10 times larger than anything we've ever seen so far- dot the landscape. The Burning Woods are no longer burning from the meteorite impacts from days of old. The fires have died down and the forest has turned to petrified stone.

The Sarnaks, being the biggest threat of all opposing sides, continue thier war with the Iksar. Using Chardok as thier main base of operations, and the surrounding area as the front lines of skirmish. A new engineered breed of Sarnak, recently created only 25 years ago, are still trying to discover who they are, and establish themselves as a force against the Iksar. They currently have set up a militaristic city called Gorowyn inside a volcano in the Timorous Deep. The other neutral races of Humans, Erudites, Barbarians, Gnomes, Kerra, and Half Elves have taken residence there as well, though no further information to how or why they gathered there.

As Amana mentioned, most of the "Website Lore" is being given to us directly from quests in Qeynos Harbor and East Freeport.

Ah kk thanks. Just wondering, because so far it doesn't seem like I'll have anything new to add to my website for Rise of Kunark. Well, nothing regarding the main storyline anyways, there will be some new stuff like Karana, The Tribunal, Bertoxxulous, History of the Sarnak and the new Lore and Legend stories...
