For a few days now, Zynga had been touting the future release of a "Secret Past" feature in Hidden Chronicles. The mystery surrounding this upcoming event was heavy, but now that things have finally seen the light of day, this Secret Past event has really just been shown to be a lengthy series of quests. In them, you'll meet a young woman named Molly who wants to learn the secrets of an old Broach.
