Fansite Vanguard Gate has an interview with Nick Parkinson from Sigil Online:
[Vanguard Gate] Right off the bat I Would like to ask you how relevant the lore we are seeing now (lore) will have on the game upon its release? Will it stand to define the game or will it rather stay in the background as something to be read every now and then as seen in some other mmorpg attempts?

[Nick Parkinson] The primary goal of the lore being released on the web site right now is to give players a pre-existing knowledge base for the world. On opening day when you land in Telon for the first time if you chose to read the lore you will know the basic history and layout of the world you now inhabit.

Gameplay-wise knowing all the lore certainly wonít hurt you, but it wonít give you a big advantage over players who donít either Ė thatís not the intent. The intent is to add to the immersion. The lore gives the world character and meaning, those in turn make it feel more alive and that, hopefully, will increase your enjoyment.
