    Default Rift Website Lore summarised

    Hi guys,

    Here is a summary of all the lore that can be found on the official Rift website. I just copy and pasted it all in one document with some images to make it look somewhat nicer. I did this because I hate to read from the web and search all of the articles, because there are a lot!

    The document is a 4mb .pdf filled with 110 pages of lore:
    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=UAHL1264

    Mind that I do not take credit for the writen stuff, the only credit I take is for all the copy-pasting;)

    Enjoy,
    Skwig

    Telarapedia has a page collecting the Lore of the game, although each part is it's own page and sub-pages. I plan on transcribing some of the collection books that were available in Beta Event 2 and 3 since those two events had their NDA lifted, as well as some random lore information that a few NPCs in the two main cities gave and putting them up here.

    This version is very beautiful though. I do like what was done for it. =)

    Very Nice, really. I was just thinking about this this morning; catching up with Lore.

    Thanks - glad I knew enough spanish to figure out how to make sure the site was safe and to download! Pdf format is nice. I did one too, for my personal use, but it's not near as pretty as yours. gracias!

    If you could start a new thread and convert this document to a set of posts, we would all ask for it to be stickied for sure. Great work!

    Oh and here is my favourite bit of the lore:

    "During our empire’s final days, tribes of unwashed brutes came down from the northern mountains." - guess who that was meant to be

    One question, the Defiant section is about three times as long as the Guardian section, that may need balance?

    That would be a lot of work, since every time the website updates, I have to edit all those posts again. I think I will keep it in a pdf file. And aslong as people reply that it is a safe-to-download file, it might get stickied too?
    We'll have to wait and see.

    That's all up to the lore-devs;)
