Post Lore and Gods in Nodiatis, Who is Thraki?

The Lands of Nodiatis are a harsh and unforgiving place, but In accordance to such some of the citizens (players) have adapted to the world around it, and have learned such skills to .... I.E. Bartering (making tax lower) or language (speaking with different races and being able to find more gold)

It seems that a majority of the creatures encountered in Nodiatis are hostile or aggressive, except for few citizens, or Travel Companions.

Whether what is trying to attack you, be a crab, a fox, a snake, or even elements in some cases, the biggest question is where did all of this originate from?

We know that "He who once thanked the Deities daily for all that he had, now asked why his neighbor had more. The Deities of strength and honor were cast aside for false prophets of fairness and philanthropy. It was then that the darkness came."

But what could that mean? My guess is the greed of mankind lead to the land of Nodiatis being cursed, a curse so bad to the point it made a majority of the people and creatures in the land hostile.

The Seer in the church Guides the one who will save the land. "All that remains is the chance of redemption. The land of Nodiatis awaits the one who will lead mankind out of the darkness"

Runes of Descension "The only hope for mankind is that he somehow muster the strength to slay these more powerful creatures and harness the power of the runes for himself. But if all continue to sacrifice trophies to godless altars without ritual or prayer then the land of Nodiatis is surely doomed"

It seems like some of the god's have manifested into a physical form and have attacked the land or players directly, If we look at the Sun Divine in Mt.White Cap, or the Lake Goddess in N.Lake Halcyon, but it's uncertain as to if these are just weaker versions of deities themselves, or the real deal.

Necromancers opening rifts could be the reason as to why epic / LG beasts attack the land at random, or it could just be the wrath of gods themselves manifesting into a beast.

Upon formerly slaying the 132, or 142 boss ( now the 115 heroic), the player was given the lock of hair which supercedes all travel gear. Question is, is this hair from the Dark Angel's hair itself, or is this hair actually a strand from the princess herself?
Lock of Hair : "this item emanates an ethereal sadness from another plane of existence."

There could very well be areas of the game that we have yet to discover, and gods that aren't as well.

Who, or What is Thraki? It seems that any legendary item discovered in the name of Thraki is very strong, we saw this with his bow, and now we see it with his arrow. There are many possibilities as to what Thraki is, a few guesses off the top of my head are.

1. God of weaponry or blacksmith, or fletching, he is a reason why a majority of the LG items exist.

2. A legendary Archer that possibly died during the invasion of Nodiatis when the darkness set foot.

3. God of Destruction or Discord, If feeling the fury from his bow is pent up rage, it is very well possible that he could be the god of Destruction or chaos.

I could be wrong on everything written here, but this is all just a hypothesis based on what I have read and observed.

What is everyone's thoughts in regards to the Lore of Nodiatis, or Thraki?

I've also noticed that there doesn't seem to be any boats in this game, except for the remnants of the ghost vessel. My guess is that orcs burned down all the boats, and that's why other means of transportation are used as an alternative, a simple raft, waders, flippers, etc.

Or he has yet to add other lands to the world of Nod to be future accessible via boats? I smell a new skill tree...

Maybe we need The River Styx, and a "ferryman" to take us to the next world, or maybe Alga , Tsutsu, or Freaky could start an uber service to and fro.

One thing I do know is the game needs a little more for high-end players, all I have left to level is Epics & Legendary Skills (which I'm sure many are in the same "boat" ) For which I am waiting patiently as usual.

I've not really been one for the whole story of Nod, but it does have a few interesting tales to tell, and I'm sure a few more in the future.

This game has seen me through some highs and lows in life, for which I will be eternally grateful, as always I await the next update to see the next chapter in Nod, ( would be nice if it was not arena based) hopefully story based, as Pve is a much more interesting (and less ego fuelled) in my opinion.

The whole "lost Princess" is indeed lost, it would be nice to get back to fighting towards a goal , rather than to upgrade items.

I have said for a long time that a new world or zone, which you would travelling to through an area, or from defeating a gatekeeper would be a great addition to the game and more importantly would give some of us a goal to work to, as not everyone is hellbent on defeating PvP battles.

I know this is not really on topic of Lakki's thread but for a continuing storyline the princess must be in sight, as is the princess is as rare as the ships in Nod.

Looks good Lakki! From what you wrote I thought of something like this:

"Legends say that Thrax, a descendant of a war god, once made a pact with the Orc tribes in an attempt to rule over all Nodiatis. He was betrayed by the Orcs, who had other plans, and in an act of fury, the legendary blacksmith cursed our world by forging the first legendary bow, Thraki, laying waste to all the boats in existence through a rain of arrows that lasted for what it seemed an eternity.

Little is known as to the whereabouts of Thrax or what his plans of revenge are, but he was last seen heading east from the now-abandoned docks in Castille crossing the Black Sea. These are mysterious waters, and skeletons of monsters and men wash ashore through the shallows of Skeleton Coast every day.

Do you have the courage to venture to the other side? Is Thrax still blind with rage, or will he be able to assist in defeating the Orcs? Step forward adventurer, our Princess needs you!"

Like others have said, the map we currently see might be incomplete or was just torn apart from a bigger map, with other parts lost in time. How big is the world of Nodiatis? If it is as big as our imagination, then it is infinite.

I think it is already in the most wanted list, but a continuation of the story would be awesome!

Lakki, Underkid... Go read a book or a series or a few!
what do you want from a browser game?!

But there was a new player a few days ago who I was helping in PMs and then he asked about the whole princess issue... and I had to say that is nonexistent in the game... that was a sad moment...
And people who see you log think you are playing some 18+ game with the princess chained but then you have to explain, it has nothing to do with the game and the only 18+ is the fact you got to deal with ***holes, like alga

If we get the river Styx then we also need the river Acheron, wouldn't be fun without it too Styx takes us to happy place, Acheron to nnot happy place

Or who needs rivers anymore when we got an almost full range of vehicles? I suggest a new skill for those 3: People transport: Each level in this skill allows you to take 1 toon from anywhere on the map and bring it to your location regardless of TG or level. Would be fun to see level 1s in castle ruins

New map/PVE stuff would be fun too please and thank you
