BETA TOPIC: The Big List Of Everything

Postby Sage Of The Wise » Thu Dec 22, 2005 3:10 pm

Yeah, if you havent noticed yet, I'm bad with coming up with titles. I've now added Sacrifa's comments on the poems, and the entire convo with the man in red down in the summoning pits.

Poems/Stories/ etc.

"The Mimic" by Kleunwrade
One who stole their names,
The child of Janwen's bane.
Darkness, shadow, death.
As long as it has breath.
Sacrifa:"The Mimic" is a legendary evil that is said to have imitated its victims. The Mimic killed people and then would pretend to be them. For a time the Mimic was the most feared being across the entire Way.

"Venge" by Kleunwrade
Scar upon the father's brow
Left by son, the disavowed
The shadowed depths below forsaken
Enter now our world, thy haven.

Fading into the night,
The scourge of fear, the blight.
Upon this land beneath the sky.
Echoes of the past decry.
Sacrifa: Venge was supposedly a son of the Lord Below that came to the Middle Way in order to avenge the scarring of his father.
Rhue: The Lord Below was scarred?
Sacrifa: Yes, in a battle with Lyn who were weilding the Illuminati.
Rhue: Hmmm... (That's strange. The poem seems to suggest otherwise.)


"Kura" by Kleunwrade
Legend of the fallen world,
Betrayed for lust, a plan unfurled.
First to right a single wrong,
Then revenge, The Guided strong.
Sacrifa: The show we were in didn't go into what became of Kura. That's to be expected though. Most people focus on Kava and Luma. Did you know the entire Guided camp was massacred the night after Kava and Luma met their end? Most people believe it was Kava come back from the dead, to avenge himself and Luma. It's also said that a forest grew up out of the ground where the massacre occurred.

Untitled
The land beneath the sky
Echoes of the past decried
A lost love carried on
Words to a lonely song
Everyone must bleed
Truth hides hothing

Conversations/Cutscenes
EP1
Headhunter
Stranger: Hail, wanderers...
Stranger: I'm looking for a person named
Jeruh. Have any of you seen him?
Dana: Not me.
Wes: Me neither. What about you Rhue?
Rhue: ...
Stranger: Well?
Rhue: No.
Stranger: Thank you for your cooperation, but
all the same...
[He attacks]

Slade & Strata
Slade: ... I know you...
Strata: Me? Are you sure? I've
never seen you before...
Slade: Hmmm...
Strata: You must excuse me, I have
a rabbit race to win.

Rhue likes caves
Traziun: Nice work Rhue.
Gaius: Now, hopefully there's
an exit out of here
somewhere.
Traziun: I'm sure one can't
be too far off.
Gaius: Good, I'm starting to feel a
little claustrophobic in here.
Rhue: It's not so bad...
Traziun: What? You like it in here?
Rhue: I didn't say that.
Let's just go.

EP6
Complete Aura explanation
Jopaga: The defensive aura around the Phantom's Edge has six flows. Many aren't aware that the "auras" they use are just fragmented pieces of complete auras. Most swords cannot grasp all the aspects of a complete aura. Quite simply, no one has ever devised or found an alloy capable of such a feat. Therefore, only a few parts of a complete aura are "broken" off and actually absorbed by common swords and other conductors. I believe the aura around the phantom's edge is complete... but it's strange... I only know of one thing that can project such a powerful aura.... a Shadow Sword. They are the only thing I'm aware of that has the ability to absorb and project complete auras. I believe it is this ability which makes them so powerful. I don't know if a Shadow Sword is putting off that aura. I just know that the properties are very similiar.

Convo With Man in Red
Man: Welcome.
Rhue: Who are you?
Man: I don't know, Who are you?
Rhue: Adventurers.
Man: Ah, I know what it is you seek. The swords of justice... the Illuminati. They are not here. Indeed, one might suggest that they exist no longer.
Rhue: What?
Man: Actually they do exist, but they are not what they once were.
Rhue: Actually, I could care less about...
Sacrifa: Hold on Rhue, I would like to hear this man out. Tell me, what happened tothe Illuminati? And what do you know of this place?
Man: This will take some time... It was during the years that Janwen became a sprawling city that most note the disappearance of the Illuminati from history. During this time, the people of the land slipped under the sway of the Lord Below. It was not long before he came to reside beneath Janwen. The people of Janwen adored and worshipped the Lord Below. In places such as this they came to meet with his lessers and make deals.
Sacrifa: The summoning pits are here?
Man: Yes, they lie through the doors behind you. I see you are somewhat familiar with the terminology.
Sacrifa: I have studied Janwen quite extensively. Please, continue.
Man: The influence of the Lord Below grew in the land. Innocent blood flowed. The Illuminati slept. But then... An impetus suddenly began rolling through the outlying lands. The Illuminati were discovered and taken up once again. All, but one. They came to Janwen. And when they reached the city, they descended into the Pits to find the Lord Below, through the very passages you yourself have come. There, in the fiery depths of the Reaches, they faced off against the Evil One. Surely they fought most gallantly and victory must have seemed certain. They scarred the Evil One badly that day. But as the Lord Below was driven back, he conjured up a great power from the multitudes under his sway. In that desperate hour he unleashed a shockwave that decimated the auras of all living things for miles and miles around. The Illuminati vanished. Janwen burned.
Sacrifa: Kava kura, are you certain of these things?!
Man: Indeed, I am.
Rhue: I hate to cut things short, but we really have a lot to do.
Man: Yes, I grow weary of this as well. Watch your step though, some Lessers still abide in this place.[/b]

"M20" Man
The Mists
Man: I saw the mists. Right before they crash down they get real red like blood. They reach for the sky, but they can't escape.

The Ocean
Man: Have you ever seen the ocean? Every river flows into the ocean. They bring sediment from far away lands and the riptides carry it out to sea. Everyday the ocean's waves beat against the shore, eroding the land. And everyday the rivers carry off more sediment. The rivers widen and the shorelines diminish. Maybe everything will one day be engulfed by the waters... Maybe that is the will of the Purpose.

The Window
Man: It's pretty, huh? I don't look out any of them anymore. I used to look and what I saw made me very happy. But the longer I looked the more my happiness faded. As time went on, looking made me sadder and sadder. I began to wish more and more that I had never looked at all. So one day I turned away. My stomach clenched up and my mouth went dry. All of the water went to my eyes. I let the tears fall onto the ground. It was like one of those rivers, slowly carrying away bits and pieces of me. Sometimes, when my eyes were full, I saw visions... I felt very sick for a long time. If you look out each window long enough, you might see what I eventually saw, but if I were you I wouldn't do it. It's a great burden once you know.
---
Rhue: Wait a second... I do see something... It's... Just some little kid... smiling? What a waste of time that was.

Random possibly nonsensical thought upon rereading the works of kleunwrade


Child of janwens bane. It would refer to something that came from the lord below, since the lord below destroyed janwen from the red guy conversation.
And considering the mimics abilioties it could ahve been a soulless being who took the auras of its victims or some shit like that.


The land beneath the sky - The Way
Echoes of the past decried - Someoens past condemned
A lost love carried on - Rhues hunt for serena?
Words to a lonely song - No clue here
Everyone must bleed - Obvious i guess
Truth hides hothing - -^^-

from my little notes you can see my point, the start menu poem seems to describe our hero. He wanders the way, he has condemned his past, he has taken up the chase for a love already lost.

If Kura is Rhue, then I'll assume Kura is in fact the son of the lord below, who seems to be the mimic.

Thoughts?

There have been several ideas about who or what "Rhue" might have been in the past. Both Kura and The Mimic have been suggested. I am wondering if Sacrifa's comments on the "Kura" poem could be describing the beginning of The Mimic.

This is assuming Rhue was once Kura and already had obtained his sword by the time of the events depicted in the play. When Kava died, his aura could have been absorbed by the sword (since it would be near enough) and Kura could have started "mimicking" Kava in the same way that we later see him mimicking Jeruh (with the made up identify of Rhue) and possibly Midian before that. This would explain how the guided were killed. If this is true then, "it was Kava come back from the dead, to avenge himself and Luma." is not that far off. After that he could have gone on to kill and imitate several more victims, becoming the legend known as The Mimic.

There is a major problem that I see with this though. Why did The Mimic become inactive for so long? I can't think of any good answer to that. I am sure there are other problems that I haven't thought of. If anyone thinks of any, please point them out.

Whos to say he has? Assuming your right, there has to have been alot of people hes mimicked between Kava and Midian, we just dont know about them.

I know that we wouldn't know who the other victims were. That is not why I thought The Mimic must have become inactive. If he never did, then why is there no mention of him in any of the previous episodes except for possibly this? Why would he go from being "the most feared being across the entire Way" to never even being talked about if he did not stop killing and imitating people?

Edit: As noted in the thread that I linked to there is another possible reference to The Mimic. In the tavern at Lide Traziun says,
"I remember something
very similiar to this
happening a long time
ago..."

Edit again:
I have an old version of Episode 2. Has the typo in the above quote been fixed?

The forest in E6 isn't on The Way, otherwise I'd suggest that one... Yeah, the End of the Way looks a little foresty, but I doubt that's it.

The forest on episode 5, on the way to Tetzel. Sacrfica and his companions were killed there by the PS, maybe not a coincidence? :roll:

I don't think this has been mentioned before. I just found a map called "Landorin Massacre" that I don't remember seeing before. Lyrra, Lexus, "The Girl", and Cetsa are lying dead in the area from the start of the flashbacks to the Landorin Massacre. Their events are labeled Lil Girl 1, 2, 3, and 4. The maps from The Reaches ending with Rhue falling have the note, "Teleport to Landorin Massacre (6, 11)".

I thought there was something missing from the poems section and I just realized what it is. If you read the "Venge" peom more than once you will see more lines.
