I only went into storylines related to the ending, but there are definitely unexplained parts of the story that I left out because I can't find definitive answers.1. The opening cutscene. Where are we in the opening cutscene, with this tree and the kingdom reflected in the water? Also, WHEN are we, if she's referring to Drangleic in the past tense?2. Who are the giants?3. What did King Vendrick steal?4. Why does the giant lord give you the giant's kinship? Why do we need the giant's kinship to open the throne?5. Why does the emerald herald say we're breaking the shackles of fate, when we're clearly adhering to fate by linking the fire all over again? Is she referring to how we're breaking the shackles of the undead curse? 7. Why does Nashandra just wait at the throne to be challenged over and over again? Nashandra guided you to the throne, presumably so you can open it for her - but it's not like she is capable of taking the giant's kinship from you once you're defeated. Kinship isn't a physical thing. Does she want you to get inside the throne, or not? I can't help but feel like there's something missing here.8. The Herald seems to be freed of her purpose..but there's a final twist.She is the one who brought you to Drangleic.9. As a final note, do you think linking the flame is done at the far fire when you start New Game Plus, or in the kiln?anywayI'd love to see these questions explored and answered in some sort of DLC - because I think there's flat out not enough information yet to answer these questions. That said, feel free to theorycraft in the comment section - because I can't do it all alone!
