@Xelinis: I read about Stormbringer some days ago and thought the exact same thing :D I was just wondering if it is coincidential or it was really an inspiration for some ideas in the series.

Doubtful, as the Suikogaiden games had us visit her topsy-turvy home world. It's certainly unique and a subject of interest, but I don't think that's the Eternal City.

How far do the Sindar predate Harmonia? I remember Luc saying in Suikoden III that the world was created 1,000 years ago. Then again, at that point it has only been 375 years since the founding of Harmonia. It's still difficult for me to grasp the idea that something only a few hundred years old could be "ancient," though.

Actually, it would be 477 years. Harmonia was established in -2 and the Second Fire Bringer War was in 475.

It's hard to say, because we need to take into account Armes as well. Though, one would wonder if Armes was even a part of Murayama's story to begin with.

Since the home world of Viki has already been explored in Suikogaiden, can links to images or videos of that location be posted here to inform those who have not played that game about this mysterious location?

i was looking for our guide's section showing Nash and Viki's adventures but couldn't find it anywhere.... i then checked out our site structure and found we must have lost a link to it. now it's fixed... Suikogaiden Vol 2 provides a link to the "Back Route" alternate chapter.

The link to the back route is in the Chapter 3 section.

1. Let me answer that first problem. We do not know what is north if south or south of north in the world of Suikoden. We do not even know where the Sindar started so for all we know south could had been where Harmonia is at the moment or since a plant is a sphere they could had gone around from north to south back to north and settle after traveling around the world when locating the eternal city.

2. What if the Kingdom of Aronia was the eternal city and the home of the Sinder people. Hikusaak being a Sindar himself led a coup d'etat during the Hero War and reorganized the Aronia into Harmonia for his own ambitious desires to obtain absolute power. Only because Sindar predate Aronia does not mean it is out of the question. Again, Aronia can be the eternal city.

3. I cannot answer this one since I do not know much about it.

However, at this point Suikoden is dead and we the fans need to step up and fill the gaps. Why the hell are we waiting on Konami? Let us fill in the wholes and make a complete story. I really like the original theory in this post.

Problem 2: Sindars predate Aronia.

Problem 3: Leknaat banishes the Fog Ship Guide back to the Eternal Capital, hard to believe this is supposed to be Crystal Valley as the banishment would be rather pathetic.

Conclusion: Theory is implausible and reads more like fanfiction.
