What's Happening

This is discussion archived from a time before the current discussion method was installed.

Visla - Hey Aquillion, seems like the two of us are working on this page. Since it's a fairly obscure series, I guess it's no surprise there are only a couple people at it the day after it was released :)

I see you added Player Punch. Were you referring to the childhood friend from the prologue? I honestly thought he was too irritating to live, given that his very lame joke was even given voice-acted laughter from the troops. I'm not trying to argue, I just wanted to ask if that was the reference.

Cheers to a good article in progress!

Mr Death: Haven't gotten through the game yet, so if they clarify it in the endgame someone feel free to revert, but I changed the opening note calling it a sequel to the first two games. In the first game, the world ends, and Lenneth is the only Goddess left (unless the game assumes the B ending, which is still Ragnarok, which in the original myth leaves most of the Aesir, including Odin, dead). The second game also ends with Odin dead and gone, and the status quo of the world at that point entirely fudged up to the point where the first game's events can't happen.

So either way, Covenant can't take place after either game.

EDIT: Okay, I got through the C and B endings, both of which feature Odin ordering Freya to seal Lenneth's memories next time she's activated as a Valkyrie, setting up the first game. The B ending also mentions Silmeria as having had a problem because of her empathy to humans, which seems like a reference to the second game (or rather, how the second game's events would have ended up without Lezard's interference). So therefore, this is a prequel to both, but takes place chronologically after Silmeria.

I hate Time Travel.

Mr Death: I went ahead and rewrote the game's description to be more robust and give a few more details about the game.
