    Default Clearing the Air: Comic Book

    As many have pointed out, the comic book we published was put out before the game was released, and thus some lore still found its way into revision afterward. However, as the comic book illustrates a key moment in the recent history of our games, I want you guys to be able to trust almost all of what you read there by laying out, carefully, which details have changed:

    The basic timeline of 80 years vs 20 years. The Ward was broken by Aedraxis 20 years ago.

    The Shadowlands no longer have anything to do with Defiant resurrection. Orphiel resurrects Asha in the Eth Life Factory he uncovers in Freemarch, not in the Shadowlands. Orphiel's connection to Asha now falls back to when Asha, Zareph, and Aedraxis were all young in the Court of Mathos, and he was a tutor. Orphiel is no longer a part of the Dragonslayer Covenant.

    The Ward is pierced by Aedraxis using tech build by Orphiel rather than calling on the power of Regulos. The tension between Cyril and Orphiel has somewhat more obvious origins now.

    I'm going to bookmark this somewhere safe, so that two years from now when someone is all "But the comic says!" I can just send them here.

    Thanks Miss Doomcookie

    Thank you!

    Is their any plan for an eventual release of the comic as a standalone for those of us unlucky enough to not get the physical CE?

    empyrean: The comics were released one by one leading up to release. So, they exist out there without being in the CE. I bet you can still buy them from online comic retailers. It will probably depend on the demand.

    You can also get it digitally if you are one of those tablet types.

    You can also order the full series in one graphic novel, like what comes with the CE. I got mine from amazon a few days ago.

    Do you mean he never was, or that in the current time line, he is no longer a member?

    I find it sad that he takes so much blame for this. Orphiel thought he was helping his country, and knew nothing of Aedraxis' plans to pierce the veil. Though, considering the things I've read about him lately, I'm beginning to wonder about him...

    She means in the current launch lore ... he no longer is.
    In the old lore he was the leader of the Dragon Slayers at one time.

    You really need to make more graphic novels for Rift.

    You clearly still have ties to DC as there's an End of Nations comic now (no Defiance though which makes WAY more sense), so I imagine you still could. :P
