* Although most of the surviving population of Solomon Island [[spoiler:appears to be infected by the airborne Filth strain]], there is still some hope, at least of some of them. [[spoiler: The Wabanaki tribe seems to somehow be immune to this infection, since none of them show up with Filth-infected versions and the have some form of ancient warding magics protecting them.]] In addition, [[spoiler: since Carter can be recruited as an Agent later on, she appears to not only be immune to the Filth but can also leave the island via Agartha like a Bee due to her massive innate magical power.]]


** Body doesn't matter. How can Said see anything given that, according to the lore entries, he has no eyes? How can he move at all given that his muscles are just desiccated beef jerky by now? ''Nothing'' in Said's body should function at this point, and the only reason he's up and about is due to a freak accident of Anima: he's not a functioning organism in any biological sense of the word; he's a lump of embalmed meat being animated and piloted by his soul. In fact, it's for this very reason that Said scoffs at threats from Tanis: he has no biological weaknesses she can exploit - no RemovingTheHeadOrDestroyingTheBrain, apparently.

** The same rule applies to most undead in the setting. The zombies on Solomon Island, for example, won't stay dead if you kill them with guns, even by shooting them in the head. The only way to "kill" them permanently is to completely immolate the bodies immediately after downing them, otherwise they'll regenerate and pick themselves right back up.



to:

* One of the first notes in ''The Park'' claims that children taken by the Bogeymen are essentially [[{{Unperson}} edited out of human memory]], making it seem as though they never existed. Assuming this is true and not just a tall tale being put around by the Innsmouth Academy kids, as the writer briefly suggested, then ''just how many children has the Bogeyman murdered in the last thirty years?'' Just how often does he need to feed, and how big a dent has he been leaving in the local population without anyone finding out?


* The final part of the Issue 5 storyline. Before you leave the [[WorldOfChaos Red Sargasso Dream]] the voices mention to "tell all your friends to visit because it sharpens the dream". Due to the fact that most missions in ''VideoGame/TheSecretWorld'' are repeatable and people tend to repeat this mission to farm for blue signets...The players are [[NiceJobBreakingItHero basically giving this thing power for shiny loot.]]

* The Guardians of Gaia are also known as the white blood cells of Gaia, these cells are known to both attack healthy and sick cells. This is a perfect description for the [[GameplayAndStorySegregation indiscriminate destruction]] the Guardians are said to cause when they are activated which is why the player characters are required to defeat them.



to:

* While moving towards Times Square in the New York raid, it is possible to see Spider Guardians crawling down the walls outside the parking garage. However, in no point during this raid does the raid group fight these creatures and they are never mentioned - this means that there is now bunch of filthy spider abominations loose in New York.


** In a similar vein [[spoiler: the reason Dragon players may keep getting the same ice-cream koans and fortune-cookies babbles in Dragon debriefings AFTER Daimon Kiyota takes her place [[SpoofedWithTheirOwnWords is that he's mimicking (and thus mocking) her own tone of speaking]], which was foreshadowed (along with his usurpation of Bong Cha's position) when he gives this answer after the Dragon's version of the "Spiral" story mission: "[[AndAnotherThing By the way]], [[{{Troll}} this is not Bong Cha, 'scuse my intrusion]].

* There is a Guardian of Gaia for each type of golem, except for flesh. We also know that they manifest from big quanties of their elements, like the Ice Guardian manifesting from a lake or the Sand Guardian from a desert. Also, they are bigger that most buildings. Taking that into account, where a Flesh Guardian would manifest? In the place of a genocide? From the corpses of the victims of a natural disaster? Or it's even possible that some people, maybe an entire town because of the hundreds of corpses needed to manifest this kind of monster, would be fused together while they are still ALIVE?! Afther all, if the Bees are not lying like the Black Signal says, the Guardians lack any morality or restrain and there is a long list of populations across history and before that just dissapeared one day whitout leaving any clue about how or where these people go...

* In the lore about the Arthropods the Bees confirm that the Locust are the ones described in the Exodus. Biblical, yeah, but here is the real question: If the locust were like that, just how bad were the other Nine?!
