This "letter from lara croft" is so something Lara would say. Read it in her TRIII voice:

^Ahnn~ She was so darn sassy I love it, I love the 4th wall breakage in stating she needs the money for her travels. Nice little call back to her having to write travel guides.

I really like what Core Design/Eidos made out of Classic Lara. It's like she's a real person

Sorry for DP, but does someone have an overview of the classic Timeline?
It's for my Project and I'd like to put the game either after AOD or before TRIV.

^I'm not sure if there is an official timeline (and technically speaking, some of the events that have happened in the TR4-6 timelines never did in the TR1-3 timeline (Von Croy, for example)). That being said, if you do decide to set it after AoD, drop me a PM. I've still got the more or less finished story draft for a cancelled UDK AoD sequel flying around my hard drive which I think is pretty good.

EDIT: Here's an unofficial timeline: http://tombraiders.net/stella/timeline.html

So. I finished TRU for the second time.

And I came to the conclusion: Amanda is the worst Character in the world of gaming
Her Character is so useless and forced.
I never understood her motivation in TRL and TRU.
"Boo. I'm so mad at you because you left me in peru"

wtf. I mean. They searched for her and she was presumed dead.
She escaped and planned an evil plot.
At the end of TRU she asks "What? You think we are even?"
Uhm hello? Lara did NOTHING to her. Quite the opposite. She used the Doppelganger who killed Alister.
It's like she killed a friend of Lara because of the incident in Peru.

Amanda was mad at Lara for not trying to rescue her or at least try and find her. Remember the cut-scene?

Amanda: What is it Archaeologists do? Oh right, DIG!
Lara: We thought of it as a memorial


As for why Amanda wanted to go to Avalon, I have no idea. She had a relationship with Rutland and they formed a plot some how on their travels they meet Natla... It's not really explained properly, to my knowledge anyway.

Amanda was great in Legend, I loved her but when it came to Underworld Amanda was added for the soul purpose to introduce Natla back in to the franchise. Remove Natla and Amanda is pointless up until the very ending of the game.

You came to the right conclusion. Horrible character indeed.
