And yes, it is generally true that I am the only person who creates Lore for this game and its universe, writes all the background fiction etc.. I try to give specific credit on the rare occasions when another member of the team has created a character or otherwise contributed to Lore content, as people will see when they activate their Horde DLC for example: artist John Yakimow was the originator of the "Seven Greatfathers" of Sword of the Stars 2.
Holy fraps! You, generally, wrote all of it yourself? I have to say.. I've been a gamer for a great many years, and this games lore is probably the most original och interesting I've ever come across. Of course, there are games with lore that is interesting, well written, and somewhat manages to avoid most of the clichés, but to me the races and lore of SotS really stand out in both originality, innovation and quality.
I personally am very grateful for just how much extra effort Erinys has put in to answering questions for, and discussing topics with the community.
Thank you Erinys.
That's a huge amount of work, and I have to say I am very impressed.. Knowing now that Erinys/Arinn more or less handle the lore herself I'm even more impressed, especially with her time answering questions. Personally, I'm a lore-junkie, and having someone that answers questions and thoughts is worth a lot.
I too am very grateful and glad you take your time with us Erinys. And with the risk of sounding like an echo of twentypence, thank you for that, and thank you for creating this incredible interesting lore.
