I have some questions about the character development of Lord Blackthorn. Pardon me if some of these questions have been answered elsewhere, I left right around the time of Lord Blackthorn's ascension.
Blackthorn has always been one of my favorite lore characters. I very much enjoyed the early stories of his rivalry with Lord British and his concerns with his choice to reunite the shards. And while my connection meant that I could rarely participate in Order vs. Chaos, I had more than a few characters who were fans of the character.
Does Blackthorn still advocate Chaos? Or is he an advocate for Virtue now?
It would seem that the Britannians are largely accepting the Virtues, given that we can now practice them and increase our Virtue. What role does Blackthorn have to play in all this? Is he for this, against, or a passive observer?
One of his suggestions in his writings was the further integration of other intelligent races into the Kingdom, such as the Orcs and Ophidians. Is he still of that mind?
The Time Lord and Lord British were planning to reunite the shards, and Lord Blackthorn stood in opposition to this. The Time Lord and Blackthorn seem to have resolved things, given the two are conversing in his castle in Britain. What resolved things for the two?
If I remember correctly, the Chaos Dragoons were largely made up of Chaos Knights who followed Blackthorn's Clone into the service of Exodus, falsely believing that this would lead to Blackthorn's successful overlordship of Britannia. Now that it has been revealed that he was a doppleganger, and the true Blackthorn was held captive all this time, are the legions of Chaos abandoning Ilshenar and returning to his service? (Perhaps answering my own question, I would assume some might believe this Blackthorn is the false one.)
