A quick question on the Lost

... I used to know this. I don't recall if it was Angus ... what's his last name, mcqueen? or not. Think he's a bit late. (Founders Falls.)

 

Edit: Steven Sheridan, THe Organ Grinders, gives you omega level clearance where you learn this. If you don't learn it there, you do through talking with the Dark Watcher during Levantra's arc in the RWZ. Angus's arcs, I think, have changed since the RWZ took over from the RCS.

Thank you very much! This arc tells us that the Rikti are actually humans, but I don't remember if there is another mission that tells us that the Rikti made the Lost into what they are. Is there such a mission?

 

The reason I'm asking this is because I'd like my characters to avoid anachronisms like running Montague Castanella's mission arc to change the Lost back to human at lvl 15, and then at lvl 30+, learn from a mission about the Rikti and the Lost and be like OMG! The Rikti are actually humans and they are mutating the Lost to be like them! Who woulda thunk it?

 

I treat the leveling process as my character learning and growing. So now, I should do the Organ Grinders before doing Montague Castanella's arc. Are there any other mission arcs I should do before that, to avoid anachronisms?

Not exactly. Angus McQueen's arc features a Lost in the final stages of transformation (the first time you meet him, he's a Lost, then the next, he's a Rikti) to drive the point home, but I think it's meant to be something where you connect the dots playing a new character and wondering if you ever learned what the Lost's deal is.

I see. Still, it's good enough for my characters to avoid anachronisms. Learn that the Rikti are humans at level 35 (from Steven Sheridan), then see a Lost become a Rikti at level 40 (from Angus McQueen), and then cure the Lost after that (from Montague Castanella).

Hero side, it's not in any sort of story arc.  It comes up in some standalone missions (for "Mutant" contacts, I think?) in the early 30s.  They send you to go after some Lost and it's all Rikti there.  Or some such.  It's been a long time since I found that mission (not since the old days), so I forget much more than that.

 

Villain-side, there's also Timothy Raymond's arcs in Nerva, also in the early 30s.

  . . . oh.  Wait.  Geez, sorry.  Force of habit.

If we knew where they were, they'd be called the Found, wouldn't they?
