Wow... DRC forums as fan-created forums... Egon, you really need to do some research before going off like this.

As for sources of facts: For me, all areas are sources for facts BUT those facts are not necessarily correct. For example, SR could say that Laxman died. That would be a fact, that SR claimed Laxman died would be part of the canon, backstory, etc. However, if Laxman the character (or Cyan, going through OOC channels) refuted that claim, Laxman's actual death would not be part of the canon. Canon would be that SR incorrectly claimed Laxman died. Only if the DRC/Cyan confirmed the claim would it be canon.

I have to check, but I believe the drcsite.org URL was provided with the documentation that came from the URU:Complete Chronicles CD-ROM. At least, that's how I discovered it. So, that must make it official.

As for the lack of an obvious link to the DRC forums from the web site - that was intentional. Back when the Cate character made her appearance, she had stated her disapproval for the forum link. There was a subsequent protest by explorers, and the link made a reappearance, sort of.

[I wish I could provide links to the chat logs, but Uru Obsession has yet to fix their spoiler tags on these.]

There's so much I want to say here, and yet I have so little time. So I'll try to be brief and merely inject some of my inner thoughts on the discussion.

Ever since the topic came up, memories of George Orwell's "1984" have been running through my mind. If I hold up 10 fingers, but you've been taught to count that number as 8, how many fingers am I really holding up? If there is no definition for the word "free" meaning "unhindered; without restraint", does the concept even exist?

If we all believe the sun orbits the earth, the truth is that we are all wrong... but until someone realizes that, as long as there is nothing in our world seems inconsistent with our ideas, does it matter at all?

Back to Uru - Is the truth known to a relative few (there IS a rich and detailed backstory) more important than the belief of the majority (there isn't much backstory)?

It seems to me that the best way to educate people is not to argue with them, and if we wait until an opinion is formed, it is already too late.
