    Default Content Timeline Survey

    I'm thinking of making a content timeline to help newer players with an interest in the narrative, lore, and plot of RIFT. It'll lay out what happens in what order, and clarify what may be more considered 'canon'.

    For example, it'll describe how to presently (3.6+?) experience the Hammerknell arc, how to pace out the Air Saga, and which version of Greenscale's Blight should 'count' (IMO the Chronicle is now canon, but we can also then decide if we want to consider the 'raiding' aspect of it to have happened or not, since 1-2 player Ascended + Shyla and Atro taking down the dragon may not feel appropriate).

    I may try to include plot-related World Events in this, but mark them as obsolete and therefore pseudo-canon (aka up to Trion to acknowledge in their existing and upcoming content or not).

    If there is some interest in this, I can try to write it up ASAP. Otherwise, I may not do it, or do it on my own time, whatever works. And of course, this will ultimately be considered subjective (like how I consider the Moonshade delving questline related to Bindings of Blood to be Lv 65 stuff, even if Trion decided to have it available for low levels).

    Any questions, feel free!

    Yes, please. I would actually love something like this. When I began to play Rift I was mainly intrigued by the lore and how it tied into the game. I had to scour the forums and the dead wikis for tidbits and piece together it myself. I recall one forum post that summarized the lore and etc (it helped me get up to speed) but it still doesn't do me justice.

    Of course, I'm just one person but personally, something like this would definitely be appreciated!

    My old stuff is here: http://forums.riftgame.com/game-disc...ough-rift.html
    It only covered 2011-2013 (1.0-2.X), not 2014-2016 (2.X-3.6). I'd like to make a more limited guide for people just looking to see what content to do next. Then see if I can do more. With a 4.0 possibly this year, it may be useful. I don't see much more story stuff happening for Nightmare Tide, save for 4.0 leadup.

    Over the last hours, I've decided I'm gonna try to do this. But any input and requests for this or other lore things are welcome.

    If you need help, I can at least throw info your way. I'm not the last word on lore, but I've routinely found myself explaining it to newcomers in the chat.
