Quote: Phathom, SOE Live Keynote Address
"The story begins with a series of cataclysmic events originating in West Karana. These events have lead to an abrupt arrival of a powerful dragon
that has traveled there through another thread, or dimension. Her name is Lady Lendiniara. Her arrival has torn through an invisible seam that binds
countless realities together, and now it is exposing what ancient texts refer to as Ethernere. Without knowing why or how she arrived, Norrathians
are prophesizing that this might be the end of times. Many are viewing her as a threat. As this is occuring, many Norrathians are uniting to confront
this dragon invader. They want to find out if she is friend or foe, but one thing is for certain - they found out she did not travel there alone.
As you travel there, you are going to be coming through zones that have always existed since the begining of time."
