Story and lore

Postby Tomix » Tue Sep 19, 2017 4:17 pm

Greetings everyone.
Lineage 2 was the first MMORPG that I had ever played. I still have some fond memories of the game, even though it's been years sicne the last time that I had chance to play. It may seem strange, but my favourite part of the game was lore and "story". Recently, I've been trying to find as much information as I could, but it's really tough to find anything in english. The last Update that I remember was Goddes of Destruction, and I think that I'm caught up on lore up to that point, though there are some gaps in my knowledge.
So basically, If there is somone here, who is familiar with the lore and would be willing to discuss and answer some of my questions, that would be great, and I'd be grateful.
Oh, and sorry for any grammar errors. English is not my first language, so there might be some mistakes in my writing.

The lore in any update past Goddess Of Destruction is thinner than one-sheet toilet paper.

Well, I'm mostly curious about Embryo and Etis van Etina, what's his story? Cause he seems to be the main antagonist of the game now, and I've always thought that it would be Shilen, especially after GoD update. So, what happened with her, is she free now, why isn't she doing anything? Also what is going on with the Giants etc.
If sombady could anwser, it'd be very helpful.

Unfortunately Illogical is right - the lore in any update past Goddess Of Destruction is very thin, and often contradictory. Here is for example the official comic about the current status of Shilen:
http://lineage2.plaync.com/board/cartoo ... sName=dawn
In chapter 2, about halfway down the page, you can see that Shilen is still locked up together with Einhasad in an interdimensional space:

Einhasad manually fighting Shilen on her own ground is something that the developers made up out of thin air.

Here is the official Embryo comic:

And here is an English-language discussion:

You can find information about Etis van Etina's early life (he was a disciple of Saint Solina) in Akjosch's video guides:

About the Giants we have only a few sentences at the beginning of the hunting ground description:

Thank you, Elmar. I was familiar with these videos, but not the comics. You say that Shilen is locked up with Einhasad, I always thought that Anakim and Lilith were the ones that were locked up together. This whole storyline with Seven Signs was always very confusing to me.

It is confusing for everybody because the developers are making things up as they go along. The current version is that Anakim and Lilith are locked in mortal combat in a catacomb that can be accessed by players in the first Seven Signs Epic Quest series, while Shilen and Einhasad are locked up in a different dimension.

Unity was a good old legit clan. From what I heard, Akjosch moved on to Innova?

Somehow it's sad to see all the old Teon clans vanish. Going by the dates of the last posts on their forum, Kuei-Jin is also pretty much dead:

Ah well ...

Not sure about that. When i played at Innova i never came across to an old member, at least by nick name. I started to a clan with cl "Dutchman", has some similarity with "FlyingDutchman" and then i joined that "crazy" Romanian girl's clan Monica (do you remember "100%percent"?).
