Trion updated their Storm Legion expansion page yesterday with some lore information on Crucia and the Infinity Gate. This information is actually the same reveals we saw yesterday from MMORPG.com and Massively, but it’s nice to see the lore and images on the official expansion page.
One tidbit in particular stands out as interesting, on the Infinity Gate lore page:
“The Ascended must secure the Infinity Gate and the Nexus Key if they hope to rid Telara of the dragons, or explore the planes themselves…”
Trion has previously given us hints about providing Ascendants with a way to explore the planes, and a new expansion’s the perfect time to showcase an adventure of that magnitude. Perhaps the planes will hold our future post-expansion content? The rumored Hunt Rifts might also be connected somehow. The sky’s the limit! Let the speculation begin.
Speaking of lore, Elrar’s asking for lore-based questions from the community on the official forums. Trion plans on creating a huge lore Q&A for Storm Legion. Here’s the post:

We’ve seen the lore hounds getting more and more excited for the future of RIFT and we know you’re hungry for more info about the lands of Storm Legion and how everything is going to fit together.
Now is your chance to ask the questions that have kept you curious – what storylines do you want to know more about? What plots confuse you? What does the future hold for Telara?
Share your questions with us and in the next couple of weeks we’ll release a full blown Q&A answering as many of your questions as we can!
Obviously when it comes to Storm Legion – some of it will be left to surprise you, and we don’t like posting spoilers. It’s still very much in development, so even if we did want to share there are some things still yet to be decided.
The only rule is your question be related to the history, lore, and people of Telara – other than that, ask away and we look forward sharing our answers!
Lore junkies, get your questions in!
Now, one final thing for your, uh, speculating pleasures! RIFT subscribers received an email newsletter yesterday announcing the Crucia/Infinity Gate lore info, as well as a reminder of the shiny white tiger mount and the latest Storm Legion concept art. One other tidbit was tossed in the newsletter– the Storm Legion new Mage soul reveal will happen on August 10th, during the next official RIFT live stream. The image to the right was posted, along with this text:
Soul reveal – Aug. 10!
Join our first Storm Legion Soul reveal LIVE on Twitch.tv. Stay tuned to RIFTgame.com for a glimpse of what’s to come…
It’s good to have a date to look forward to! The image might be worth speculating a bit about, too, but is the purple storm surrounding the darkened Mage figure from the Mage, or from the nearby storm? I guess we’ll find out on August 10th.
