    If you look on the map of what is accessible to explore in Ireland, you’ll obviously notice that the western coastline of Connacht is mostly cut off, as well as the southern half of Ireland itself, which includes the medieval Munster and Laigin. From the perspective of the game map, Annaghdown should be somewhere southwest of Tuam and northwest of Carnagan. Galway itself would be due west from Carnagan. I’m curious why the rest of Connacht is cut off from the DLC, and more critically, Annaghdown itself, as Brendan of Clonfert established a monastery there after returning from his overseas adventure. Speaking of Clonfert itself, the game map is not accurate with respect to some geography of the real Ireland (obviously). Clonfert is supposed to be due east from Kiltober and Lough Rea, but in the map, both locations are placed much further north from where they are supposed to be.

    Regardless, Ubisoft had an opportunity to continue the story with Brendan of Clonfert after he returns from ‘Vinland’, given the development from all of his Standing Stones dialogues. It seems a bit sketchy, from the perspective of the game at least, that there wouldn’t be any further insight. Eivor could have traveled to Clonfert to find more clues. More importantly, Eivor could have discovered Brendan’s burial site at Annaghdown, explored the monastery there, and found some text from Brendan, or perhaps an account from his sister Briga. It would have tied up things nicely if a direct connection were made between Brendan and the Order of the Ancients.

    If you want to review the dialogues, here’s a good compilation I found...





  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.
