Welcome to the forum!
There are some slight differences in the North American translation, but I think only the European website uses the Japanese story. But thanks for that link. There's a lot of detail in there.
And knowing Treasure's storytelling, a third game wouldn't answer questions as much as tangle things up into an even bigger mess!
One thing bothers me, tho. So, the Gods/Creators created multiple Earths to cultivate violent humans for their war. Yet, each Earth is nearly the same as the others. Each one has a Japan and a United States and I assume other nations, which also implies that each Earth follows a specific (predetermined?) history and development. But they're not exactly the same because some don't turn out violent enuff.
Thanks! I'm hoping that I can become a part of the community!
You are probably right, it's not like the sequel made the first game much more clear... I do however try to simply accept the world they have created. It's the main points I want answers for. Kachi is such a major part of both games that they are bound to explain things. But then again, they could probably add even more confusing plot points.
Well, seeing as Kachi was able to transform into a clone of Earth herself in the first game, I'm going to presume that ALL the Earths are clones of some original Earth (Earth 1, which to hazard a guess would be our Earth). And I also presume these clones were created at a point in the relatively near future, rather than all starting out as lifeless planets with different continental shifts.
The fact the Gods wipe out the populations of failing Earths to create a new violent Earth makes me believe the clone is always created from a pre-populated planet, and all life is cloned as well.
Welcome to the forum Ville10! Looks like you registered back in August 2009, but good to have you chatting!

Guess we're throwing spoilers to the wind here, eh?
OK, so we're assuming that K/Achi's ability to turn herself into a clone of Earth applies to the Gods/Creators of Inner-space, as well? Does that mean K/Achi is a God(ess)/Creator of Outer-space?
Also, the original Sin & Punishment takes place in 2007, and according to you, is on Earth-2, so the cloning has already happened. Arian's vision takes place in 2017, and Isa is already a small child at that point (assuming the vision came true). So, I guess we can estimate that S&P2 takes place sometime in the late 20s-possibly early 30s when Isa is a young adult.
So, all life is cloned. Does that mean there are different versions of individual humans, like one Isa for each Earth? Or are we talking randomly generated human clones?
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.
