Panda Manual

Just bought the guide for only £2.50 at a bargain books store! I love how colourful and packed with information it is.

I've seen it in Waterstones but frankly - like War Crimes - I wouldn't pick it up unless it was cheap as chips. It's not worth the paper it's printed on.

The book is not bad. Problem is that... 95% of the lore there is already known.

For lore-ners like most of us, it's full of boring pages with lot of info we hace known for years. But for newbies, it should be really good.

It might have made some things we dislike canon, but it has it's good sides and confirmed some theories. We know who leads the Sunwalkers now, for example.

Didn't it have questionable canon like Voss, Darion, and Bolvar?

It just sounded like it. They simply used different ways to say "undead".

Which is who the book was made for in the first place, not for the lore-nerds, but for the people who found the game and were curious to the back story.

So for them, it's perfect.... but for the lore-nerds.... gnashing of teeth seems to be the consensous lol

Hence questionable canonicity.

Only if you didn't get the memo. Afterwards it's not questionable anymore.

So then they should've reprinted it. This is why I don't take you out for picnics.

I'm sure the next edition will look better, Tora-senpai.
