Show Notes – Ep 177 (Nothing Ends)

This week, we sit down to chat about the lore book, Nothing Ends, with special guests from the Guardians of Lore podcast.


Summary of Episodes

Evolution – the gradual development of something, especially from a simple to more complex form. Within this development, many argue that there lies a never-ending and constant struggle to exist – a battle in which only the fittest shall survive to continue forward. For some, this inevitable struggle for survival was the key to evolution – referred in many circles as “natural selection.” 

But there also exists the concept of those who came before – the chain that could be traced through time, leading to the current generation’s presence. This never ending chain, in addition to telling the stories of those who came before, connects everything that is with that which was – both good and bad. Within the letters contained in the lore book, Nothing Ends, we see a conclusion of sorts – the ending of one of these chapters…and the beginning of another through the actions of our Guardians in purifying and creating Lumina. 

But, in light of all this, the message also contains a quiet lesson – a reminder from Shin to our Guardian. This, after all, is simply another chapter in another story – one that will, eventually, bind together our legend with those that came before.

In the wake of your legend, we will all be footnotes – afterthoughts, forgotten by most. And someday another will make the same of you. This is our purpose, this is our charge – to inspire those who would continue our efforts. So go now. This chapter is over, but remember now, and remember always…

Nothing ends.
