    That was really enjoyable. I know very little about the time line of events etc. I particularly enjoyed the snake Clan explanation as I have always been a bit unsure how they fitted in

    Good amount of lore. However, wasn't Zoar one of the primordial Eternian Gods?

    I would assume that Zoar is one of the gods but nothing concrete has been mentioned. As soon as it is I will add it to the timeline

    I assume this is a compilation of story bits from different sources, but WOW, it's the first time I see many of them! This is a document I will have to read again, revisit every now and then... too much to digest at once, but from my first reading I have 3 questions:

    1) About the cat god, I was aware of some "facts" because of the recent bio, but I don't remember having read that part of this god marrying a mortal Quadian female. What was the source of that? Or is it a clever conclusion from the statement that Sabe-Or was not a god, but kind of a demi-god?

    2) In the section PRETERNIA BEGINS a cosmic enforcer is mentioned (stopping the Unnamed One's schemes), and then in a later section named THE HORDE RISES it is mentioned how the Overlords of Trolla assemble the Cosmic Enforcers. So, what's the interpretation of this? Some cosmic enforcers existed before the official assembling as an organization reporting to the Overlords of Trolla?

    3) In the section DARE IN PRETERNIA (around -3015) "Dare and Spector are sent back to Preternia" and "Illumina kills Spector", but then in section THE END OF THE HORDE (around 15 years later) "Spector takes Laser-lot to the future to King He-man". I know he's a time traveller, but I need to put this in writing to try undertand myself the time paradox here:
    a) Originally the events happen in history without Spector
    b) At some point in future, Spector travels to year -3000 and brings SLL to King He-Man
    c) At some point later in future, Spector travels to year -3015 (that's before SLL being taken to he future) and is killed. SO, what happens here after this point: first thing is that time trips stopped, at least for Spector, AND... WOW! no time paradox! because Spector had pulled SLL from the timeline 15 years later at the very moment SLL almost died, so the death of Spector doesn't change history of Eternia. This is very clever, it is as it should have been for a time travel agent, there's no track of his doings in the past, the only visible effect would have been in future with him not returning from that trip (sad thing).

    hey thanks for reading so thoroughly man in answer to a your queries
    1) I concluded that the cat god Saz married a mortal Qadian because it seemed the most logical as the Qadians were a humanoid cat race and that Sabe-or was a demigod. Also Sabe-or bequeaths his sword to be passed down to Quadian chieftains.
    2) It would seem I put that fact about the cosmic enforcer in the wrong part of the timeline, my mistake and I have moved it
    3) I also am confused about the time paradox with the whole Spector thing, I can only assume that for a brief time there are two Spectors in Preternia, albeit very briefly. Like in an episode of Doctor Who, as long as they don't come into contact with each other then there are no drastic consequences. If any new info comes to light I will change the timeline accordingly

    Wow, dan1980! This was great!
    Im always eager to read new interpertations. Thanks for your work on it!
    The presentation and detail reminded me tolkiens silmarillion, but of course, it is the motu. High praise!

    Thank you for answers and for putting this together. Impressive work. This document shows the importance of having the history of Eternia in a chronologically ordered way. Having the characters, creatures, objects and places in an inventory is a huge pillar, but we also need the narrative of the history.

    Agreed - I've been advocating for an easy to follow narrative of MOTU lore for a long time, so it's amazing to see someone taking up this gargantuan task, since it'll never be done "officially". Thanks so much for your hard work and dedication, dan1980!!!!
