The “second Arkerra” theory is something Flo hashed out on the phone with me while I was at an airport. I’m not entirely sure the story needs it. The idea of seeming causes not actually being causes works fine for me without it (e.g., you play the game and make choices, but your choices are actually just what the adventurer you’re playing would have made on their own; you’re a developer of the game and come up with a story, but that story’s just a reflection of what’s actually happening on the real Arkerra).

But I wasn’t gonna argue as long as the explanation didn’t conflict with anything that had happened or that we wanted to happen.
