Plotting: More than Depth

“I would definitely like to steer us away from stories where the answer is “Abaddon did it!” I think it was compelling for Nightfall because it made Prophecies and Factions both feel grounded in the same world, and it felt like an epic revelation. But the problem with continually using Abaddon is then our world never grows any “wider,” it only goes “deeper.” There’s plenty of other topics to give more depth to, and there’s more than enough room to tell entirely new stories in the world. That’s something that is good for the health of the lore – if we go back to the same thing too many times, we’re going to end up with Mursaat being the equivalent of Daleks, only without the goofy and endearing qualities.
