Default Random Attacks

Why do the enemies attack you in Antarctica when they're working for Willard, whom you're supposed to be meeting to give the artefacts to?

Engine design.

Enemies are designed to attack you
Some are designed to befriend you, unless you turn on them.

Its unnescessary to try and make reasoning - it was, 1998

True, They could have had polar bears as enemies for that level instead, with Willard's men trying to fight them off.

Exactly! Hahaha there are some things I feel like - you just cannot answer for sure.

Eg the almost constant wonder of, did Pierre die in TR1 or TR5?
Core and Eidos don't even know - they're not fortune tellers. They couldn't have predicted he would return 5 games later when they were designing TR1 in 1995 hahaha.

Alot of it remains open ended, floating timeline and sometimes purely nonsensical.

That's why we love Tomb Raider.

I always interpreted it as Pierre being injured when falling in TR5, but then surely the events of TR1 must have happened first since Larson was Lara’s ally in the first game. Who knows haha she probablty just defeated Pierre in Greece without actually killing him

She probably did! But many fans want MOAR!! moar that doesnt always exist. But I guess we can dream hah

I always took it as per official displays;
Chronicles trailer shows Rome as 1989.
Tr1 was labelled present day 1996. Therefore he really dies in Greece.
I consider this - canon - as it was done BY the designers.

But them told this is wrong- and that it was explained in a 2006 book (not by) core design? That sounds like a 10yr later decision for an explanation imo haha.

To be fair, Chronicles was a quick cash grab. I doubt CORE were that fussed in the continuity

You're right Grootcake TR Chronicles was rushed, but then again so was Last Revelation.

Yes but CORE seemed to have put a lot of effort into LR since it was their attempt at a final game for the time. Chronicles was ordered as a suprise alongside AOD so they deffo rushed Chronicles a lot more than LR. I mean look at the lengths of each game
