    Default Info|Lore: Plain and Simple

    I've never been a man big on the Lore of games, perhaps because it's too far and would take far to long to get caught up in, but I have a very strong feeling this game will pull me in, and i would most definitely like to absorb as much of the lore as i possibly can.
    (Keep in mind i have not read a single bit of Lore; I'm looking for A. Direction to the Lore or B. A Rift Crazed player's idea of what went down"

    What I want to know:
    1. I want to know who the Big Shots are for each Faction, Who is the leader, who is the bad *** that comes out of no where and turns the tides of battle
    2. I want to know about all the little battles and arguments that led to there BEING two factions.
    3. I want to know How the rifts started occuring (Not literally but from each perspective)

    I don't just want to play this game, I was to be a PART of it.

    -I was going to include a lot more

    A good place to start is here. http://telarapedia.com/wiki/Timeline

    You'll learn about all the different gods, how the factions were formed, and everything else leading up to the current game date.

    Seriously ... all of your questions can be answered by reading the main site pages.
    The best place to start is ... MAIN SITE

    No need to be a troll, sure he could look up, click the RIFT logo and then search the site for all the information he needed, but what he wanted is someone to summarize it up for him so he wouldn't have to go through everything we did.

    Lol.

    The main rift site is pretty good but requires you to sift through a lot of stuff and make a lot of inferences. For quick references and chronological order I'd suggest going here and here. If you'd like a more in-depth but still ordered look at lore, check this site.

    Keep in mind though,that at this particular point in time, the lore isn't yet fully comprehensive and not all of the "official" sites agree on everything. In addition, there are also a lot of allusions and holes (seemingly purposefully) in the lore that allow each individual to kind of fill in the blanks on their own.

    He wasn't being a Troll. I too, am often stunned by how lazy people are. That's why I rarely take the time to answer lazy @#$%'s.

    Not our jobs to spoon-feed the gibbering masses. My opinion is that if you want to play a beta for a game you may end up buying, you should do a little research on your own.

    More power to those that want to waste their time on this, have fun and peace.

    If you got nothing nice to say, why bother saying it at all?

    Now, I'm almost sorry I tried to seriously help you to begin with, by telling you that the Main Site was the best place to start.

    Why not assume i'm lazy? Which in this case i was I wanted a link and that's what i received.
    I still think it's funny as hell that you called yourself to lazy to look at the pages!! ... I may even use it in a sig ... it's that epic!!!

    My bad! ... I will try and help you with better directions.
    Once you click the RIFT banner at the top of the Forums, it will take you to what is called the home page. Now there will not actually be any lore on that particular page, but what it does have is what some might call ... interesting. Now what you want to do next is take a look along the top edge of the page, just below the RIFT banner. On that header line you will see some blue link boxes. Place you hand on your mouse and slowly scroll over them. As you scroll some will open up to show more choices. Spend a few minutes checking out those listings, until you see one that you'd like to start with ... For me I just dove right in haphazardly and went with "Zones", but you can choose whichever you'd like.

    Goodluck and if you ever need any futher help ... don't hesitate to ask.

    BTW .. I was glancing down the Lore Forums and about 5 thread boxes down was a post called .... RIFT Website Lore Summerized". This might be something handy for you. I haven't actually seen it myself, but from the replies n the thread, it could be a goodie!!! Here's a link to it.... http://forums.riftgame.com/showthrea...ore-summarised

    I didn't even realize You were the same person that posted the first one, i thought you were a random troll coming in here.
    My apologies.

    I don't spend 100% of my time on these forums, and i know there is a lot of people that literally do, so i assumed i would get an enthused Rift fan to either give me a link or type a summary, it doesn't matter how many threads have been opened before, It's a forum, You don't run out of room.
    anywho i apologize for telling you to shoo, I didn't realize you were the third poster trying to help
