Title: Dundar Empire?
Post by: SmartyPants on September 19, 2010, 10:07:10 AM
When the Hero recruits Anya, she says, ""Now what should I pack?...Do you think I'll have any room for my Histories of the Dundar Emperors?"
Is the Dundar Empire still around?  Who is the current Emperor?  What part of Cera Bella would the Dundar Empire be on?  Is the Histories of the Dundar Emperors a fictional book?

So many questions. Let's just say that Craig will get to it in time hopefully.

But it's fun to make guesses that will later on turn into ideas. So...

Idea 1: The Dundar Empire could be an ancient civilization that died out long ago, but we later on face some ghosts of them, more powerful ghosts, as they lived long, they should be more powerful so as to show why they lived so long.

Idea 2: The Dundar Empire could be a civilization up north, who we might get help from, or face in combat.

Idea 3: The Dundar empire is accually the land secretly run by a Criminal Overlord.

Idea 4: Craig just made up a book name for Anya to bring to emphasize Anya's studious habits

Are you giving an idea or are you stating a fact that defeats the purpose of this entire thread? Just asking.

It is not my favorate theory, but it is a possible thoery.


Idea 3 and Idea 4 are kinda based on the same idea.

Gah!

I believe I had suggested this first.

I didn't plan on this being a discussion, but I wanted to ask the questions just in case Craig was in a good enough mood to answer them.  I was hoping that he would answer these questions along with my "Nation? (http://sinisterdesign.net/forum/index.php?topic=221.0)" questions?

Idea 5: Craig just put it in to make im2smart4u ask questions.

And seeing as how I am being purposely ignored or insulted by said jerk, I will begin cussing him out in multiple languages. Do not click the next spoiler as it contains some language and flaming. Please excuse my language.

Histories of the Dundar Emperors being a fictional book would be somewhat against Anya's character; studious and scholarly, always with her nose in a book.

You have never been assigned a fictional book to read in English class?

I say she's like you, reading about the past to be more knowledgeable in the present.

Actually, the truth is, we don't know until Craig answers are questions in this topic.

I hope that it's a real place, that would just be awesome.

Ditto.

Maybe it can be included in the next one.

What do you mean!?! There is already a country like the Dudar Empire (cough, cough)!!!

Though personally I wouldn't mind seeing it in TRPG4. Who else agrees with me?
Title: Re: Dundar Empire?
Post by: The Holy namelesskitty on September 25, 2010, 05:05:27 PM
Yeah totally, there could be another entire main quest there in accordance with my Idea of multiple main quests.

I'm in favour of the 'Ancient Civilisation' theory.

It seems the most likely, considering that there is no other references to it, as there likely would be in a current civilisation, and Anya likely prefers history to fiction.

However, they were probably invented 'spur of the moment', to emphasise how studious Anya is.

Aww... you put the "realism" into "surrealism".

Thanks. I think.

I'm pointing out that you're the reality check here. It's not really good or bad, so much as just...  :-\ down to earth.

Is the Dundar Empire still around?  Who is the current Emperor?  What part of Cera Bella would the Dundar Empire be on?  Is the Histories of the Dundar Emperors a fictional book?

It seems like many of the questions about the Dundar Archipelago (http://telepath.wikia.com/wiki/Dundar_Archipelago) will be answered in Telepath Tactics.
