Me neither, but he said he'd love to do it ... so I guess we can find a solution (if we know the problems).
But nevermind, you don't seem to get the point.
Exactly. Ragnar feels/thinks he can't do it now, possibly not ever, and I don't blame him for not revealing the reasons... not right now, at least. On the other hand, I'm personally sick and tired of people pretending that there aren't a ton of major plotlines in TLJ, Dreamfall and also Dreamfall Chapters that were never tied up in any way, shape or form. Ragnar told us that there will be some things about April's journey that he wanted to explain, but the main plot points of the games, especially the dreamer cycle, will be tied up in book five, and that we should wait to play it before assuming what will or won't be tied up. This was all well and good and all until we played book five and yet after putting our heads together, we still don't understand what happened. There are still a metric fuckton of plotlines that were never tied up and there were also a ton of times that we were told "the balance has shifted" only to find out that all that happened was a slightly different line of dialogue, if even that. We really need to figure out everything that was not explained in any way and put it together in a concise list and politely ask that Ragnar and Dag seriously consider explaining at least a few of the many, many, many things that were left unanswered. It would be fine if they answer them here on the forums, but it would obviously be better if they were to answer them in one or more of the following: The complete edition, the novels/short stories/books in the enclave, and at the very least a skeletal outline of TLJH. I'm not asking for every single detail to be spelled out to me; I'm asking for a TON of major plot points to not be abandoned, therefore ruining the entire franchise.
What's up with Cortez? Did he intend for Brian to be possessed by the undreaming, and did he intend for his possession to result in the genocide of the magicals, or was that simply an unintended consequence of Brian traveling to storytime?
The white of the kin died and her daughter was born, then her daughter was murdered and yet her spirit lived on to speak to Saga. Did this happen with any of the other kin? The red and green of the kin appeared to have died, but we don't know that for sure; all we know is that they disappeared and April's watch stopped ticking. What happened to the blue of the kin? Was he Uncle Galath?
What happened to Benrime, Fiona, Mickey, Emma and Charlie?
What happened to Samantha Gilmore and the twins? They were never mentioned again. Alvin Peats was mentioned again, but only in an extremely cryptic manner, and only if he was the Alvin who's mentioned when you repeatedly click the teacup at the end of DFC, but is there anything more at all that can be revealed about him? Who was Queenie? Why was Mr. London introduced as at least a supporting character and then completely written off? What was the point of this? Major plotlines from TLJ and Dreamfall could have been explained in any way, shape or form, but instead time was wasted with a lot of stuff like Mr. London, who shows up in DFC, seems like he might actually be at least a supporting character at some point, and then disappears with no explanation as to why he was ever even introduced in the first place.
How did Zoe save April? She didn't. Zoe saw April die. At that point April died and was gone forever. You can give me this BS about reincarnation all you want, but Saga clearly is her own person, and therefore she's not April. So how was April saved, and from what was she saved? Herself? Her suicidal tendencies? This seems like a major cop-out. Zoe was supposed to save April, but failed, so April is gone forever... but Saga somehow has some of her memories when she's a child, but when she's old she still doesn't understand the connection she shares with April... but still, somehow either Zoe saved April, as the "white lady" said, even though she wasn't saved; she was brutally murdered and then kinda sorta reborn as a character who is a textbook case of a deus ex machina, or she wasn't saved at all, which actually makes sense, but it also makes a liar out of the "white lady", whom I assume is the ghost of the white kin reborn. Also, when Zoe became "the dreamer", she could have just dreamed April back into being, but she didn't. This really makes it seem like Ragnar and Dag twisted the knife after having stabbed April in the heart. Why? How could anyone hate April Ryan at all, let alone hate her enough to completely fuck her over again and again and again? You're a couple of cold-hearted bastards and I'm really glad that I don't know you on a personal level. If that's what you would do to a good person, what would you do to a person who's not really good or bad but somewhere in-between? Yikes.
I'm not asking for the world. I'm not asking for everything to be explained. I'm just asking for the saga to not be left almost completely unexplained. We hardcore fans have had quite a go at trying to figure out any and all of the points I just brought up, and then some, but we can't, and I really don't think that's because it's possible to figure them out with the information we have in front of us, but we've been unable to do so. I really think it's because we don't have the information in front of us that we need to be able to figure them out. I'd love to be wrong, although that would make us less clever than I think we are, but I really don't think I am. I know I've been harsh here, but I really think that at some point someone needs to say these things, explain why they're saying them and expect to be taken seriously. I'm sorry for irritating the fanboys/fangirls, but I really think that what I've said was well-reasoned, well thought out and valid. If you can answer any of my questions, please do so. If you can't, please understand why a good number of fans of the saga feel as though the saga deserves better than to be left with a ton of unanswered questions. And to Ragnar and Dag, I love you both to death, no matter what happens. Please try to understand what I mean and where I'm coming from. Please tell us what we're missing. Do it in whatever way you feel appropriate, but for the love of the balance, do it! I'll be the first to thank you. And either way, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for having brought us this wonderful, beautiful saga. I know you're supposed to always leave them wanting more, but you should know that there's a limit to that.
