let's start again from the top
I really didn't know where to put this post, so I though I would create a new thread with it, but I think It would help everyone understand (and generate) better theories if we know the facts in order.
Don't get me wrong in this. It's not such an easy task to understand the whole plot right now. And with all this time travelling and all that, it's getting kind of confusing to keep up with the theories laying around.
I have seen many sites and posts that try to get the whole story in a time frame (Sort of what is done in SR2) but I haven't seen one that sticks ONLY to the KNOWN facts, i.e. Just what we KNOW that happens (either from Kain Experience, Raziel Experience, Janos story telling, Moebius story telling, Ariel story telling, etc.).
For example, I have not clear which one came first: Did the Ancients build the Pillars after they had the Soul Reaver? or did they make the Soul Reaver before creating the pillars?
Another thing I don't have clear is, if the pillars choose their own, and vampires are inmortal, and originally the pillars had vampire custodians, then WHEN and WHY did the pillars started to get Human guardians?
Didn't Kain see Moebius and a mob killing Vorador when he came back in time from killing William? Then how is it that Vorador lives in BO2? (Now, this one for sure may have a logic explanation, but I don't seem to find it)
So I believe we should try to compile a "time line" somewhere, sticking only to the known bits that can be considered a FACT (such as the corruption of the pillars, or the evolution of Raziel) and keep it for reference for everyone.
Plus it would help to keep the theories consistent with what we know happens.
I'm just playing BO for the very first time now, (Thanks to the help found in this forum to run the game in a w2k machine) and I fancy, there are things in that game that have been overlooked when creating some of the greatest theories around and it's precisely because all the time traveing and all the chaos that it creates.
On a side note:
The moral of the story is: never travel back in time!
