When EA fails to provide adequate fiction for a major change we are entitled to build or infer our own. Sosarians are going to be preoccupied with Shame. There is no reason we shouldn't be. It is going to impact armor. Weapons. The smuggling trade between Britain and Magincia. Alchemists and Metallurgists are going to be investigating the new properties imbued in each piece. But these changes didn't just materialize. The Sorcerers of Shame are gathering. Something sinister is growing in the depths of that subterranean lair.
