Having both gone through the Collector's Edition Piggyback strategy guide, and seen a few fragments here and there, there are a couple of things that are notable, or at least stood out to me.
* On page 318-319 is a kind of bottled history of Eos, which is divided between the old A.E. calander system and the current M.E. calander. In the ancient period, the known world was dominated by the prosperous empire of Solheim. At its peak, the Astral Ifrit led some kind of betrayal, which plunged Solheim into a war that led to its destruction. This was exasperated by a "parasite" whatever that means (the Daemons or Starscourge), and that the King and Oracle were chosen: the King to end the scourge, and the Oracle to lead the people. Of course, no explanation is so far available for either of these. It'll be great if/when someone creates a list of item descriptions, as they seem to have pieces of lore in them, or digs around and shares their findings.

* In the Pitioss post-endgame dungeon, where only Noctis can travel, there is a complex arrangement of rooms that defy geometry. Inside, I noticed strange statues and symbols: large male figurines, daemon-like figures, barriers of red energy with a man's face on them, a giant skull on a vicious trap during the second segment of the dungeon, and a female figure lurking in the shadows behind said trap - one in particular is a huge statue of (I think) the same woman raising a sword to strike. I don't know who any of these are, but the dungeon looks like it predates the M.E. Era, which is the time of the Oracle. I don't think the woman the Oracle, so who would merit inclusion in such a grand and terrifying dungeon? Also, a neat thing is that Noctis isn't allowed to die...

The biggest problem finding anything is how much they wanted to simplify the lore. They almost simplified it out of existence.

So, what caught your attention and made you think?

I remember coming across a Cosmology book that stated the gods sent 24 messengers to man or something like that.
Wonder if Gentiana was the last of those, or if she even was one to begin with seeing what she ended up being. (Plus Ardyn seemed to know who she was, "Ah, the face you wore the day you-")
(Edit: So it seems like other languages actually got the full line. "Ah, the face you wore on the day you died." Is the line in German and "When you got killed you had that same beautiful face." Is the line in the Japanese version. Apparently someone thought it was a good idea to cut this line off in the English version.)

Also, maybe this is just me being crazy, but is it possible the Rock of Ravatogh is being used by Ifrit to help spread the Starscourge somehow? It seems to be endless spewing ash. I didn't have the sense to look in it's direction after the 10 year skip.

I also came across the Pitioss dungeon and found it pretty interesting with the statues, doubt that'll go too deep into that though.

I wonder if Ardyn is referring to her looking like the woman on the cover of the Cosmology book. Perhaps it's just the Oracle but it would be a Messenger waiting to give the Oracle the Trident since they are holding Gentiana flowers as well.

There are a lot of interesting weird dungeons that have no explanation as to what they are and how they work...
