Site Reorganization II: Lore & Timeline Pages

Hi everyone,

Just a quick note here. We’ve started and organized the site’s content and basically consolidated them into two pages. While these aren’t everything we’ve done, it should be a good part to get started if you’re interested in digging a bit deeper.

The lore page is organized by content category. The timeline page arranges events by chronology. They’re also added to the drop-down menus for easy access.

As I mentioned before, we get pretty busy around this time of the year. Still, we’re just moving things along, so thank you for dropping by. 🙂

Sure. Let’s take a look.
