- even the introduction video for KQ6, insisted that the games portrays earth history of a european-like kingdom that occured a long time ago, when magic and mystical creatures still existed on earth.

"long time ago in the castle of a kingdom called daventry"-KQ6
Its the first text shown in the in the intro. Where as in the companion Derek says things are currently happening.Baggins 09:01, 20 September 2005 (EDT)
By the way while I can't find a transcript of it, there was an interview on Ken Williams old internet radio site "talkspot" with an interview with Roberta Williams discussing KQ8. I'm pretty sure to answer one of the questions she implied that the events of KQ8 happened a long time ago and Daventry was on earth. She even said a few things about why she kept on reinvisioning Daventry and it didn't always match up with previous games. But I won't add this info to the main topic unless I can find a good way to paraphrase what I remember or track down the actual quotes. Baggins 14:15, 20 September 2005 (EDT)
- Some fans have interpreted 'long ago' as not referring to Earth, but rather, 'long ago in Daventry'. In the sense that the events of the games concern the past of the world of Daventry being told from some distant "present" on the world or in a sense "future" beyond the events of the games. In this theory, the dialogue from manuals, and KQ6 intro came from historians in Daventry's present/future when technology had taken over, and magic no longer exists.
- Also, some view the references to 'earth' in dialogues and text, as a 'translation' which means generally the World (of Daventry), without referring to our planet.
- None of these explanations truly incorporates Connor's reference to the planet Jupiter, or the Jupiter Parchment's reference to the constellation Leo, and their connection to the Celestial Globe, which is intended to represent the stars and planets seen by the people of Daventry in the night skies. Which are part Earth's universe.
