If I'm right , the dragons created the human race as a "slave" race.Then a human escaped the slavery and killed one dragon.Then all the other humans escaped , and the dragons were like "Think you can escape me ****?Here I come!".It's just an oppinion ;).

Would be nice if it was that easy :D!
No, actually there are more groups. In fact, Aero even let slip that there was a group that wanted to fight the humans and one that didn't but live in peace with everybody and even quite a few more.

Death Knights serve Zylcious.
Xvareon is not the strongest dragon (I'd say that's Yurgimar at the moment).
Death Knights can be fallen Dragon Slayers, but don't have to. I think it's enough that they are or were strong warriors. After all Zylcious choose them by himself and I don't think it's that important to him if his strong servant was a former Dragon Slayer or just another guy.
I'm looking for an as good as possible English-speaker that can take a look at a few TCO dialogues. Please send ma a private message to confirm/see whether you can help me or not.

What's with these death knights?
They are mind-controlled servants of Zylcious.
Quote

He's not human.
Quote
What happened to the first ruler of Kar'gath?
He was slain by Zarxof.
Quote
There is only 1 Death Knight, Uummut; the other is Zylcious, a dragon in disguise. They freed Galeoth because it is a key point in Zylcious' grand scheme.
There are actually 6. All of the characters in the Man of Mystery cinematic (ch7), save for Zylcious, are death knights.
Along the shore the cloud waves break,
The twin suns sink behind the lake,
The shadows lengthen
In Carcosa.

Strange is the night where black stars rise,
And strange moons circle through the skies,
But stranger still is
Lost Carcosa.

Songs that the Hyades shall sing,
Where flap the tatters of the King,
Must die unheard in
Dim Carcosa.

Song of my soul, my voice is dead,
Die thou, unsung, as tears unshed
Shall dry and die in
Lost Carcosa.

Okay, good ones. So I'm not sure if you want anwers now or what. My original plan was to ask some question so that all the mysteries will be answered in the campaign.

Where did you get this? I mean especially the elemental dragon part?

Isn't this told in the story already? I mean in that optional cinematic.

I am refering to the scene where Uummut and Zylcious freed Galeoth. Not what you are thinking.

Guess it won't hurt me to ask a few questions. :D
  • The fusion between Fradz dragon and Fradz human. What exactly happened ?
  • Zylcious' scheme. What is his plan ?
  • Uuumut's fall-from-grace. How did he get transformed to a Death Knight in the first place ?
  • Who is Lavareon ?
  • The exact chronicle of the Great War ?

Fradz and Phodom are 2 imba guys yet they recognize they can't beat Talloon.

The dragon Fradz transferred his soul into a retarded human, giving him normal mental capabilities and the name Fradz.
Quote
Zylcious' scheme. What is his plan ?
To overthrow Xvareon. Simple.
Quote
Uuumut's fall-from-grace. How did he get transformed to a Death Knight in the first place ?
He had a dual personality very similar to Dr Jekyll in Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. One day, while his evil side was in control, he killed an entire garrison of troops, and when his good side took over, he can't believe what he did, and ran away. His good side was apparently destroyed when Zylcious made him a Death Knight.

Maybe they are just not powerful enough.
Either way, I've got a question: Was Uummut's evil side willing to become a Death Knight?

This thread seems to be so active and you guys are so thirsty maybe I should do a thread about answer to story questions...? This thread's purpose was just get some questions...

Okay, good ones. So I'm not sure if you want anwers now or what. My original plan was to ask some question so that all the mysteries will be answered in the campaign.

Oh yea I get it. Phodom and Fradz beat Talloon(in his human form) just like Zeemnan. I have never said Zeemnan beat him while he was a dragon.

And by the way Talloon is "Emerald Dragon".

Yea something like that but the story goes a lot deeper than this. I've written a whole story of this...

EDIT: From what items I should create stories?

Hey! Ive got a few questions of my own and have played through throughly all the way to chapter 6 and part chp 7 so forgive if my questions are answered:

1. As said before both fradz and phodom realise they cant beat Talloon an "emerald dragon". Considering they seem fairly powerful, 4th and 3rd rank respectively, how did humanity ever beat the dragons in the war? They seem too powerful, was it numbers, surprise at being turned on or was it like they wanted to 'seem' to lose?
2. Who killed the first dragon? Was it Noctoriah? How powerful and influential was noctoriah in the war? What major roles did he play, we dont learn much about him.
3. Is Zylcious a god dragon? Is he the strongest being in the game, can he be killed?
4. What are the attributes, strengths, weaknesses etc... and different races of all the dragons.
5. Do all dragons have immense power like the chapter 6 boss, zylcious, the other dragon in the ch6 cinematic, talloon, xvareon? Or are these just the cream of the crop with the rest far weaker in strength.
6. What power does zylcious hold over fradz? Is it why he is so... nuts?
7. How many races did the dragons experiment on and create to fill the potential slave role? Will these races play a more active part in the campaign as they probably have reason to DISLIKE dragons?
8. Why are death knights so powerful?
9. Why can some people become dragon slayers and others not? Is it just as simple as some people are born with power and others aren't? Training has no say in this?
10. Whats fradz backstory?
11. Whats the deal with siluze?
12. Why does zylcious order the death of fradz and then let him live and go on with the other chosen ones, why doesnt he just kill them all?
