"Few, if any, today still remember the First or Second Horizons." Really?

Fri 01 Dec 2017, 01:29

How come that in the world of the Third Horizon, Al-Ardha is a long-lost memory?
There were several hundred thousand people from Terra in cryosleep on the Zenith.
Did they lose their memories during their thousand-year long slumber?
If not, they should have had relatively recent memories of Earth, the planet of their youth.
Some of those might even be around in the present day.
Also, there should be some written records left.. people had a lot of time to write down their stories after they woke up.
Just some food for thought.

I understand Zenith and Nadir to be generation vessels, ie no cryosleep. That said, I haven’t checked in the core book.

Cryosleep for the colonists and generation vessel for the crew.

It is my understanding that the Zenith and Nadir started their journey a few years before the discovery of the first Gate. I couldn't cite any source, but I remember that info.

A hundred years actually. At least timeline in Atlas Compendium says that.
