If they're determined to make the storytelling more opaque, I'm hoping that they take their cues from Metroid Prime or Marathon or something, rather than sticking cutscenes everywhere. Multiple, fragmentary, conflicting accounts embedded in the environment. An engraving here; a journal page there. Similar details to those in the item descriptions right now. The documents in a hidden shrine built by remaining worshipers of Gwyn's firstborn (for instance - or something else which doesn't quite mesh with existing information) won't necessarily agree with those elsewhere, and it's up to the player to reconcile these fragments and assemble them into a narrative. Maybe have a journal that's updated with the snippets you've come across, assuming that you've already purchased it; don't just hand the story to players on a platter. Okay, Gwyn's firstborn wore a crown that menaces with spikes of bread. But what does this mean? Can the source be trusted? Another source said he had a wheat allergy - which is the truth? Or perhaps the bread isn't wheat-based?
