Avernum: Escape from the Pit what this means for the encyclopaedia

While playing through the remake I noticed that alot of stuff had been added or changed to fit in with the second trilogy or to clarify.

So how do we approach? As this seems to be a repeat of the Exile/Avernum Conflicts.

I suggest do this from a case by case thing.

  • The fact that the major nephilim tribe active during A1 events was given a name? Add all that new stuff in. They are the Split-Tail Clan btw.
  • Motrax clarifying how he is related to his siblings (Spoiler: He isn't blood related)? Nice! Expand that entry.
  • Prince Hrothar being replaced by an nameless undead guardian? Keep the original.
  • New Date (2185 vs. 747)? Screw. That.
  • Pyrog's changed gender? I have no idea. Doesn't really change much.

There is more stuff. Maybe I should start a thread at the forums? Hell, we may need a new template for A:EftP conflicts.

I agree. This game is gonna truely mess up quite a few things that are already here! Arch-Mage Solberg (talk) 12:02, 25 April 2012 (PDT)
Case-by-case is best, and I agree with pretty much all of your suggestions. The general guideline should be to take the more specific information as you did (Split-Tail clan from A:EFTP, Hrothar from E/A1). Also... Athron's gender was flipped earlier, right? Maybe we should just make that stuff canonical. Re dates: Maybe we can say they're using Old Aizoan reckoning or something, which is way out of style in the mainstream?
Personally I'm wondering why Jeff would change that. The only difference I could see between Ermarian being in the 8th or 22nd century are that the latter feels more Sci-Fi and the former more medieval, even though the timeline of Ermarian is completely unrelated to ours. -- Arancaytar | Send Reply! --- That is not dead which can eternal lie... 13:00, 25 April 2012 (PDT)
