    Based on the picture of the half-breed Cassians/Elden, my guess is that they're simply space elves and because elves are douchebags who just wander off to retire for no particular reason (Tolkien says hello), that's all they did. If such, and they didn't even have the courtesy to say anything before leaving, then, well, I hope the door doesn't hit them on the way out.

    I might be biased against elves, though. Ditto for the "mysterious people who just disappear for no reason" trope.

    So that kinda stops any speculation about it, for that's a small confirmation about what happend.

    I did a poor job of it, but I was speaking for their motivation as it appeared to the antagonists. Until we have a chance to see the storyline and learn about these hints, it does appear that they just wandered off for no reason. Just like Tolkien's elves appeared to leave the world of man for no reason unless you knew the reason why.

    The fact that they couldn't be arsed to tell anyone why they left/disappeared just emphasizes the doucheyness of it all. Unless some unseen enemy just snapped their fingers and instantly vanished every single Elden without them having a chance to react or see it coming, at least one of them could have said something. Especially if it was as devastating as it apparently was.

    Hence them being giant douchebags. :)

    SPOILER ALERT......

    I do not want to know anything that may take away from the game's story line.
    Why not ask what happens at the end of the elder game? I want to wait to play and find out for myself, that is what we are paying for. If they give you all the answers then what is the point of playing the game.

    I think they're less Tolkien elves and more Elder Scrolls Dwemer



    they meddled in crazy <REDACTED> (which in TES was Sunder, Keening, and the Heart of Lorkhan) and pretty much <REDACTED>ed themselves over.

    also, since the post above me mentions "the thing that got them is coming for the players" then I'm assuming their crazy and universe law breaking science either created the monster that killed them or attracted it.

    Why are you in this thread then? This is kinda a whole ''spoiler'' thread :D As soon as something is known you can bet on it it's on the fan-site's forum etc.

    Also isn't the point of the game not to know what happend but to make sure it doesn't happen to the Dominion this time? (Exiles can just be destroyed :up:)

    :p

    I get that we are all excited to figure out what is going on with the lore and such. My advice is everyone who is posting in this thread should definitely pick the scientist path.
    Asking Carbine to spill the beans on the game story before release? Good luck with that one....lol:D

    dont see anyone actually asking carbine to tell them where the eldan are. some people just like to speculate .. you know .. flex their imagination.

    I honestly would fly out to the States, find Pappy and punch him in the face if he were to insult me with that tired trope. Yes, I'm really sick of seeing that trope applied to nearly every villain in Warcraft lore and I won't put up with it anymore. >:|

    Nice read !

    This one of the reason I want to play the scientist so that I'll get more info on that.

    Here is some possibilities that I can think of :

    - They create something that they couldn't control. (Like the replicators of Stargate)
    - They ran out of a material that was a basic need for them.
    - Maybe they're still here but in a parallel universe.

    Anyway I can't wait to find out ! :D

    I have this suspicion that the story will bear some similarities to that of Fable 3 or Mass Effect.

    For example, in Fable 3 the story went something like this

    Benevolent King (Eldan) leaves a kingdom to his two heirs (You and your douche brother). Brother (Dominion) takes over the kingdom and strives to build its forces because of an impending evil that you didn't know about. You (Exile) believe in freedom and leave the Kingdom to seek your fortune.

    I could be wrong, but it seems plausible.

    Except that the Dominion has no knowledge as to why or thanks to what the Eldan have left. They don't know about that ''impending'' evil.

    True, might be closer to the Mass Effect story.

    From the Mass Effect Wiki regarding the Protheans

    Source: http://masseffect.wikia.com/wiki/Prothean

    There are some similarities IMO.

    According to the E3 Q&A with J.Gaffney Eldans got Busted.
    "Something bad happened to the Eldan. They didn't just disappear, and the thing that got them is coming for the players."

    "Something bad happened to the Eldan. They didn't just disappear, and the thing that got them is coming for the players."

    Well the question then becomes "What killed/ate them and is it still on nexus or did the Eldan fight it in the void between galaxy's and thus its on its way? and is the reason the Eldan wanted to Cassians to take over the galaxy purely because they believed the galaxy stood no chance unless it were to be unified?

    Hopefully whatever it is isn't as terrifying as these guys or were all lunch!
