I really appreciate the update!
I actually think the "Baelius being dead" angle is fascinating; it explains why Alydriah can be found in person in her citadel, but Baelius is only ever seen as a holographic head that says one thing in a vault... and in flashbacks. It would lead to the Legion redefining itself; they've always been, in-game canon, against Alydriah as an Administrator who 'turned against Baelius' vision," so she can't be their new figurehead... probably.
It would lead to... more wars, I guess! Cayden looking for Baelius' tech-mage experimentation for an advantage over Titan, Fortune City's dome being torn down... we could see PROGRESS!
That being said, I can completely understand why the team wouldn't want to go over to about half of their players and say "Welp, your Faction is... dead? Reforming? Was always wrong and sucks so you suck?" And the Exile players... "what were we fighting for?" doesn't seem like it would come up (Baelius is just a bogeyman- the Administrators have been inflicting carnage, and whose been directing them? Have they been all acting as separate warlords, or are some of them cooperating...?) so they'd just receive a massive PR boost and a bunch of people losing motivation to fight in-universe because they were in it for revenge.
Even so, I love the world of Delta V (and Delta IV seemed... planet-ey... before the dragonoid destroyed it. Slayer says it was a war-torn rock, but so's V), and I appreciate everything shared. I especially appreciate the new storylines and questlines, although I'll probably always miss going on the wiki and finding a new bit on Jumerna or the Slayer's reason for being called that.
Oh! And before I forget: Will we ever see Thaddeus? I don't think he's ever been a meetable NPC, and while that fits his lore, I'd love to see what dialogue would be appropriate for a man on Delta V with no constant identity. It's fine if you don't know or want to tell me; I'm just happy to talk about some of the best parts of this game.
