So eager for this game to be released to get the back story on Xehanort (or whoever he was before) and his journey to darkness. My brain is bursting with too much information. Original characters from KH1 (being connected to classical elements (earth, water, air, etc.), characters from X (being connected to 7 deadly sins), and now norse mythology? What is Nomura smoking these days? I'm trying to make some connections, but can't. However, one thing that is kind of consistent is 2 of the 3 norns being present. Skuld and now the new character Urd. Verdandi needs to show up in another game somewhere in the franchise. Looking into more knowledge on Norns on Wikipedia, and some parts are interesting. Goes on to say under Legendary Sagas that they show up at the birth of a hero to shape his/her destiny. If there's a connection between player and xehanort, you have to wonder if the norns are showing up to watch the story of player/xehanort unfold? What we were playing was the Dark Seeker Saga which is all about Xehanort. Skuld being there for the (what shall be) phase, and now Urd being there for the (which became or happened) phase. Maybe we won't get a full story in Dark Road, and another game will be developed with a slightly older Xehanort turning even more dark, enter Verdandi and the (what is coming into being) phase.
