    Really? I found them likeable.

    Different strokes, I guess. It's all good, though
    However, Quna's theory coincided very well with my contempt towards these... well... sentient beings?

    Yeah, because when Dark people go to sleep it will be a lot of collective "dreaming", and, for the sake of the Balance, the Undreaming will be activized.

    I think that was your imagination.

    No, she's actually right. When April talk to the Shadowguide, and you select 'pay' the Shadowguide says "We are here to find new additions to our library. Some day it will be complete, and we can sleep. Until then, we travel, and we collect."

    I wonder when that will be...

    Well, originally the forum matched the purple tones of the TLJ site. They got the wintry blue makeover in the lead-up to DF's launch.

    If I don't get myself killed in some accident or lose the internet, I'll be posting

    As it was discussed before, it will be a close call for me - I'll die in the same year as the game's only projected release date
    So, I may not be posting then. Or, I'll be posting very simple messages, saying mostly things like "braaaaaaiiiiiiiinss"...

    I wish I'd discovered this place earlier...

    I've been around for three years and I'm not leaving.
    And this lpace will probably stay as a forum for a long time.

    (Sorry for the double post, but a thought struck me and it's so long since I made my last post that I didn't just want to edit it in.)

    The Dark People couldn't possibly be through collecting books until humanity is long gone. After all, while there are humans around, they'll keep writing, right?

    Now, the Blue of the Kin refers to the Dark People as 'his people', doesn't he? Does that mean that the Dark People came to Earth with him, along with the Alatien and Maerum forefathers?
    If so, is it likely they'll leave with him? This might signify that the Draic Kin will stay on Earth as long as the people are still here.

    No: the Maerum/Alatien are his "children", the Dark People are his "messengers".

    Right.
    But how did they get in touch? What made them loyal to him?
    Perhaps it's just his status as a Draic Kin. After all they let the White stay at the library.
