Ok, I did Betnikh island story – a fascinating one – and now I’m trying to compile a book on its history. And here’s what I have:

Loading screen 1, Carzog’s Demise: Way before Balfiera Elves sealed this Ayleid ruin during the Direnni Hegemony, the Orcs used this place for a very different purpose…
Ok. Direnni Hegemony. Here’s some lore: Clan Direnni rose in power in 1E 355. Than Aileids were absorbed by Direnni making them even more powerful. And in 1E 477 Direnni managed to conquer High Rock, some parts of Skyrim and Hammerfell – so, here’s a rough time of Hegemony, right?
BUT the Orcs that were referred to “used this place for a very different purpose” did it in 2 E – Second era!
Now, one more loading screen. Loading screen 2, Carzog’s Demise: This Ayleid ruin on Betnikh was sealed by the Balfiera Elves during the Direnni Hegemony, and its tunnels were never explored or catalogued by the Bretons who came after.
Wait. Bretons were already there when Orcs “used this place for a very different purpose” according to the quest.
I’m lost. Quest and other sources clearly say: Breton lived on island, then came Orcs and killed them. Where do Direnni fit then?
I stopped writing now... frustrated and lost.
Edit: shall I just throw Direnni away?... In this case the story will become neat and logical...
