What's the Deal With the Strongholds?



  • ...And what do they have to do with the Cult of Scylla(sp.?), the Undines, Abbydos(sp?), and Tavara? Sorry if this has been answered before, and I don't care about any spoilers.

    P.S. Do the Undines make an appearence in Cythera (besides the ghost)?

    ------------------
    Someone give me a funny signature! PLEASE!



  • The story behind Tavara and Abydos was apparently slated to be explored further in Cythera 2, which regrettably will probably never be produced (we keep hoping, though ;) ). Glenn reportedly had the story all mapped out.

    Don't be so sure... though I seriously doubt ambrosia would be the ones publishing it.

    Which, of course, would portray HoF as a pile of lies. :)

  • Of course, but that's the nature of fan-fiction ;)

  • But the Tavara/Abydos story was a secret , creating the contradiction between the real story and HoF, which wasn't good. Both the nature of fan fiction and his signature still stand.

  • My sig is open for discussion. I'm willing to concede that some secrets should be kept, I'm just at a loss for a simple way to define just what kind of secrets shouldn't. Obviously, keeping some secrets in a story to surprise the readers is OK, and there'll be many other instances, I'm sure. If anyone has any ideas, I'm listening.
