In Response To: Infinity story criticism (Forrest of B.org)

: So we've all done plenty of analysis of the Infinity story around here
: lately, but in the process of working on this new, updated diagram, a
: criticism occurred to me.

: Aside from the prologues (both in the manual and Ne Cede Malis), there's only
: one short segment of four levels in Infinity where you're in a timeline
: that you're working with Durandal: the first half of the "Rage"
: chapter. That seems kind of out of place. The rest of the branches mesh
: nicely with each other: you work with Tycho down one timeline that ends in
: disaster, so you back up and do things a little differently, that ends in
: disaster further down the line so you back and do things still differently
: and that works out. Makes a nice, consistent story. But the segue to
: working with Durandal, which appears to end up taking us down the events
: of M2 again, just seems kind of out of place.

In the Rage part 2 timeline you do work with Durandal for a short time at the end of Foe Hammer. Unfortunately one of Durandal's terminal messages is the wrong colour (red rather than green) which doesn't help. So it is not an all Tycho timeline as in Despair or an all Durandal timeline as in Rage part 1.

The same is true in the Envy timeline. You start out working for Tycho, then Thoth and then the reborn Durandal-S'pht entity.
