It was a big concern before the release of awakening whether or not dlc would carry over from the first game to the second

well i think it needs to be pointed that even though weapons, armor, and stuff like that doesnt carry over story content does indeed carry over

direct reference to uncovering the mysteries of soldiers peak by that one person

so for all those people worried about the shale storylines evaporating, i am sure its still in the game somewhere.
