New Premium Module: Tyrants of the Moonsea! Read More
No doubt there is a forum out there more appropriate for this enquiry, but I'll be damned if I can find it, or remember yet another account password, so here I am relying on a mutually agreed fanbase comprised of those of you who loved Baldur's Gate, and went on (like myself) to play Mass Effect and love it too.
I'm hearing reports that the Mass Effect sequel (provisionally referred to as ME4) is to be set in a new universe. I'm dreadful at Physics, but what exactly are the implications of this? If I remember correctly, doesn't that mean that all of the decisions, locations and relationships set up and explored in ME1, ME2 & ME3 will be completely irrelevant and overturned as the developers explore a completely parallel timeline and realm of space for the new games? And if so, does nobody else find this to be a fearful idea and a terribly travesty given the fantastic and vivid fiction we have come to know from the previous Mass Effect games and their supplements?
Any enlightenment would be hugely appreciated, for - as many of you might already have figured out - I am fairly clueless about life and everything therein.
