Sounds good. That matches up with the impression I had that people did not know Taladas existed.
Maybe that knowledge can be extracted from the game and listed here.

You can explore the entire continent, almost. The south western area (controlled by some elves) is impassable and a couple other areas are "locked" until certain stages of the game. There is no sailing - only in the beginning are you on a plot-directed boat ride.
Do you think the burnt out port town is supposed to be the place in Ansalon where the draconians arrived?
There are sea-elves in Otherlands (in the Watermere Campaign Setting). Do you think these are the same sea-elves in the game?
Is the village that the ship arrives in named?

This sounds good. Maybe we could look at the Lets Play video to see what the NPCs say about each place.
