While I have travelled across Krystara, far and wide, seeing everything there is to see (yet), I came across several questions that made me think about the very essence of this world/game.
On my journeys I have found many a key. Back at my (ever changing) home stronghold I brought them to my treasure room which was full of unopened, locked chests. To my surprise I found that each of those keys matched the lock of one of those chests.
A closer examination revealed that all the keys (and, consequently, the locks) were the same!
This leads, of course, to further questions. Who scatters all those keys across the world? Who forges the keys? What purpose doth it serve? And, most importantly, why doth anyone need more than one of said keys if it matches the lock of each of the chests?
The answer is simple. Planned obsolescence. The keys are one time use only. They simply break after opening the chest. But at this point further questions arise.
After opening the first chest I discovered its content. It was not gold, gems or other riches. Krystara’s vast assortment of creatures is hidden inside those chests! Living (well, most of the times), breathing (well, most of the times) creatures are hidden inside those chests!
Who would do that? And why? Are these creatures born inside the chest? Or manufactured? Or are they caught from across the lands and magically sealed inside the chest? And how do dragons and the likes fit inside those chests?
Either way, by whom and why?
Then there is another issue. I only discovered keys on my journeys, no chests. Why? I do not know. But I do know that I have a seemingly unlimited amount of chests waiting for my return. Where do the chests come from? Is someone purchasing them while I am away? If so, who? And with what? My accumulated gold is untouched.
With these questions, oh sages of Krystara, I humbly approach you. May your wisdom enlighten me and answer my questions!
