Hi all,

I'm coming back to playing DROD: Second Sky, and I forgot most of the storyline. Is there a comprehensive plot summary of every game somewhere?

Thanks!

Yes, you just have to answer "yes" to the question you get right at the start of the game.

Be prepared to be overwhelmed by that recap in TSS. I love it, but it is so crazily dense that it feels like a caricature of a recap. Enjoy a nice drink from the firehouse.

It also doesn't help that some of the plot events covered in the recap actually took place in some of the Smitemaster Selections between the main game releases.

All the better reason to recap them!

I think the recap should include a recap of the recap at the end. It's hard to remember everything that happened in the recap.

Agreed.

I hope my comments above don't come off snarky. It's a fine problem to have - so many things happen in a story that it's difficult to summarize them.

Now that's just crazy talk. It would get too long at that point.

No worries, it's totally fine :)

As a bit of a tangent, I read an engrossing new fantasy series, the Licanius Trilogy. These books contain Wheel of Time-like epic scope, without the at-times-controversial narrative and plot bloat. Anyway, I listened to the audiobooks, and the third book had a recap of the first two books, and the recap seriously went on for, like, 45 minutes. And I realized I needed the recap at that point. Highly recommended for anyone looking for good high fantasy with world-builder conspiracy vibes like DROD features.
