How huge swathes of data are misplaced without end in such a short while, typically compounded by colonization and a rewriting of historical past. Leaving solely fragments of a civilization’s true story behind. ‘The Witcher: Blood Origin’ will inform the story of the Elven civilization earlier than its fall, and most significantly reveal the forgotten historical past of the very first Witcher.”
