    I compiled this list for the WildStar Roleplay community originally, but I thought some of you here might find some use for a handy list of links to various lore as well. Cross-community cross-post time!

    Some of these links aren't strictly lore, but still contain some interesting, in-character tidbits about this fantastic new IP Carbine is providing for us.

    Locations
    1. Welcome to Nexus!
    2. Introduction to Algoroc
    3. Introduction to Galeras
    4. A Look Into Deradune
    5. Crimson Isle
    6. Dominion Arkship Destiny
    Dungeons
    1. Stormtalon's Lair
    Note: Okay, technically, dungeons are locations, but I'm making a separate category for them anyway. Deal with it.

    Characters
    1. Meet the Granok (Hover over the first image for some flavor text!) - Official site
    2. Meet the Aurin - Official site
    3. Meet the Human - Official site
    4. Designing Game Lore (Dorian Walker character document)
    5. Meet the Cassian - Official site
    6. Meet the Draken - Official site
    7. Meet the Mechari - Official site
    8. Mondo Zax and Victor Lazarin
    9. Meet the Mordesh
    10. Meet the Chua
    Note: As you can probably tell, there's no difference between the "Meet the..." series of articles on the official site and the ones on MMORPG.com and Dealspwn. I chose to list them this way because the Granok interview at MMORPG.com has flavor text that might be of interest to some, but isn't available on the official site. It's also because the original three articles (with the Granok, Aurin, and Human) were part of a WildStar Week series just before the Christmas holidays in 2011, which was later made available on the official site. Dealspwn apparently also got to post the Dominion interviews slightly before they went up on the official site.

    Creatures

    2. Northern Wilds MiniBosses

    Yeah, such a great list!

    May I suggest adding the timeline from wildstar-roleplay somewhere? I know it's not an official site, but the info comes directly from Scooter, so I'm sure it can be useful in figuring out the lore :)
    (Shameless self plugging. Or.. A bit shameful, but still, I figured it would be useful enough to mention :D )

    You guys are lucky you get it set up so nicely! I got only the rough draft! That being said, I'd like to thank starspun for making this and letting me see her 'draft' so I could catch up on all the lore goodies that are out there. :D

    Thanks for uploading this!

    I don't play many games, but those I do, I get super into. I'm big into lore, though I'm only now delving into Wildstar in detail. Fortunately, not only is everything here for me to catch up on, it's still early enough that it's quite achievable to catch up on all the existing lore. :laugh:

    Just read the article on minibosses in the Northern Wilds and even though I'm late to the party, I just can't help but point out that what they call a 'Symbiotic' relationship between the Xenobyte Queen and the Skeech is in fact a 'Parasitic' relationship, since the Skeech get nothing out of the relationship; at least that we know of. :geek:

    "Typically" being key here. And for all we know, it is a mutually beneficial relationship - they just haven't figured out what the Skeech gain from it. ;) My guess is protection, though.
