So I was fishing around trying to find out a little bit more about Requiem when I found these Korean promotional short films:

Part 1



Part 2



Part 3



So with a bit of interpretation it looks like these people represent the 4 races in the game. I'm pretty sure the man in the suit is a Turan, the man in the fur coat is a Bartuk, the leather wearing female is a Kruxena, and I'm not sure but through process of elimination the school girl is Xenoa. Like most cross media endeavors in Asian culture I'm pretty sure I'm not going to ever understand the story since it's kind of like a "Had to be there" kind of situation. Intriguing to say the least and I'm wonder for people who have played a lot more of the game does this make any sense to you?

Cinematic Intro to the game



So this is the cinematic that is in the Korean release of the game. I understand why they stopped it from playing in the U.S. market...it's got bad voice acting and a confusing "Bad Anime" feel. It seems this show your first breaths Ala Robocop. Do we ever find out who the girl is? I was thinking that the flashback may just be showing how Temperions live with (Again like tragic hero characters such as Robocop, 8-Man, Robot Hunter Casshan) fragments of their past lives.

What do you guys think? I'm hoping to find out more of the lore as I play the game so if you think it would be a major spoiler to talk about these videos now just post spoiler before you tell the juicy secrets! Smile

Actually, if you look in the Requiem folder on your computer, there is a
folder named 'movie'. Click on the one in the folder called 'GameStartIntro'.
It's the same Cinematic Intro you posted Smile

Yeah in my fishing around I found that out. I'm thinking they disabled it because its quality really doesn't make you want to play the game like most mmo intros do now a days.

After watching all the videos, I found credits at the end of the 3rd one.
It lists the people who were in the film, as Turan, Xenoa, Bartuk, Kruxena and Shadow.
The Turan and the Xenoa were the asians, as those were the only asian names in the
cast. The other female was the Kruxena. The Bartuk of course, was the one in the fur.
Now about the character Shadow. This I'm not sure about. Some of the history of the
game keeps alot of the past a secret, as to who created the Kruxena (Nach), and remade the
temperions (Ioxenic). These may be represented as the Shadow in the film.
BUT! Maybe that could be a new race eventually?
I do know this... the films were made way before the Xenoas were even introduced.
A race called "Shadow" would be very cool. But I'm going to assume for now that the
Shadow is representing the Nach or Ioxenic.
I guess we'll all just have to wait and see....
Smile

Edit: Just reread the lore on the Requiem site, and made corrections above.

Neat! I didn't look at the the credits so that clears up some stuff! It does spark my curiosity a lot. Is the Korean version of Requiem at the same stage we are or do they have more content? I here there are no quests after lvl 63. So I'm wondering if we are just getting a staggered release of content.
