The lore overhaul is a process that started a few years ago when I started taking a closer look at what I had established so far and what of it actually made any sense. Through the course of the various battlethreads some backstories have been fleshed out in great detail requiring that I take a closer look at what happened beforehand.
While I have to consider various story arcs, events and characters as alternated universe or crossover content, I intend to weave as much as possible into the story without sacrificing its individuality. After all, The Blue Phantom Chronicles is supposed to be an universe of its own, formally unrelated to any other franchise.
Now, back to the beginning. Revisiting the various bits of information assembled over the years, quite a few of the appeared unfitting, illogical or plain dumb to me. After all, I created all of this over a period of 20 years, a lot of time to mature and view things differently than I did back then. Furthermore recreating various ships in a 1:1 scale within the Space Engineers game engine revealed some aspects about certain ships which I think need to be rethought.
So what will this overhaul impact? How far will this go? It depends. While some aspects may remain untouched, some may receive slight changes - a ship being renamed or resized, a character bio altered. In more severe cases, I may utterly change the course of history or replace a ship with a different one. In the following I'll try to note all the changes that I have made and will be making, ordered and by category.
