Rhue for forerunner now???

Postby trisabre » Thu Mar 27, 2008 10:47 pm

Hi, I just finished The Way and managed to get all the endings but after watching the ending where traziun dies, because "Rhue" completed His purpose on The Way and realized the truth and has reached the "End of The Way" can he now be considered a forerunner, in the definition that is given for the term? Please any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

But that wasn't the end of the way, it just used to be. Also there are no such thing as forerunners.
Also who said Rhue completed his purpose. Its unknown as to what he might really be. So many questions left unsolved.

Well, you could say that he is a forerunner under the definition that the forerunners are the people that have traveled much farther down The Way than anyone else, and it is heavily implied he has traveled around The Way multiple times, which is much more than most people. But, no, I wouldn't call him a forerunner in the conventional sense.

I thought it was common knowledge that The Way is incomplete. Lun finished Rhue's story but it is far from over.

But is Rhue's story really finished? Maybe his aura as rhue is solved but the man (presumably Venge) story is far from being over. We still have no idea exactly where he came from, who is past auras were, or what he's even going to do now that he realised is life is a lie. So maybe "Rhue's" auras story is over, but is whole story is far from being finished.

Well, I believe that what we've seen so far is the end of Rhue's story. What we haven't seen is the beginning. So linearly his story is over, but yes, there is still more to tell.

Rhue's story is over. The story is finished. If Lun were to continue with Rhue he would have to write a whole new story. As Sage said, we haven't seen the beginning and Lun has thought about a new project about Dirk etc, thus going to the beginning of the story,

Actually, I'm pretty sure Rhue, that is, the body that eventually became Rhue, was originally one of the Illuminati wielding Lyn who went to fight the Lord Below. Venge was just presumably the first aura to be absorbed and take over that body when the Illuminati became corrupted.

I had a thought that maybe Venge WAS the Lord Below. He corrupts the Illuminati, they try to kill him but he owns them, absorbing all of their auras and becoming...something new.

I believe the widely believed theory is that Venge is the Lord Below's son that rose up against him though.
I've been out of the picture for about a year so could someone please update or correct me if I'm wrong?

No, no, listen. This is, of course, my own bag of theories and speculation (mostly), but here's how I'm thinking it went down.

Janwen's going to hell, pretty literally. A bunch of Illuminati are awoken and taken up by some seriously bad-enough dudes so they can go and kick the Lord Below's butt, restoring peace, order, and sunshine.

The Illuminati-Lyn, let's call them, hack n' slash their way through five-thousand and seventy-two floors of the Pits, murdering tons and tons of Lessers as they go along.

Now, as we were told in the game, all weapons have the ability to absorb auras. However, most can only absorb fragments. What makes Shadow Swords, and, I'm assuming, their predecessors, the Illuminati, so powerful, is the ability to absorb WHOLE auras.

BUT I further assume that the Illuminati don't INEVITABLY MENTALLY DESTROY THEIR WIELDERS like the Shadow Swords do, that being one big difference between 'em.
That is to say, while the Illuminati could absorb whole auras, the Shadow Swords would absorb whole auras WHILE weakening the owner's original ties to HIS SOUL.

Anyway, back on track.

On level five-thousand and seventy-three, the Illuminati-Lyn run into a miniboss called Venge. The Illuminati-Lyn who would eventually become Rhue tears Venge apart, and the Illuminati absorbs the vile creature's aura. The Lord Below is pretty pissed about having his son murdered, so he rushes out and the final boss music starts playing.

The Illuminati-Lyn are doing pretty good, and leave a nasty scar on the Lord Below's brow. The Lord Below, despite realizing how much of a total chick magnet scars can be, freaks out and unleashes his super-omega attack.

This shockwave, as we are told, "decimated the AURAS of all living creatures for miles and miles around." Notice how it says aura. Only the aura. Of living creatures. Not body, not soul, not mind, but aura. In this same shockwave, the Illuminati are corrupted into Shadow Swords.

NOW. These newly created, seriously bad-news Shadow Swords are, presumably, still in the hands of the now aura-less Illuminati-Lyn. With no more original aura of their own, and a Shadow Sword held tight in their fingers, guess what happens?

Oh yes, ALL the auras in those swords start vying for control of the body of their wielder. In the case of the Illuminati-Lyn now known as Eventually-Rhue, Venge was the big winner.

A similar thing likely happened to all the other Illuminati-Lyn, but let's assume the Lord Below was not a big time player and had only one son.
The other Illuminati-Lyn were likely now controlled by the auras of some fairly tough Lessers, but nothing the Lord Below would really care too much about. He probably either, A) Killed them, because they still looked exactly like the dudes that had just finished cutting him deep, or B) Sent them off to do some minor stuff that history cares not to recall.

BUT, let's say the Big El Bee had a soft spot for his son, Venge. Even though he was now in the form of the Evil One's most terrible enemy, the Lord Below could not bring himself to kill his own child. Rather, he banished his son to the Middle Way to do what he will. Venge's new appearance should let him blend in quite easily up there, he figures.

THE BEGINNING.


Wow, I just typed a lot. Forgive my mad rambling. Hopefully it's semi-coherent.

Regardless of whether its right or wrong, that was the most entertaining theory I've read in a long time.

I second that!
In fact the idea of a Way movie sounds even more appealing if we got to see something like that.

Heheh... The theory itself isn't as awesome as the way you tell it.

"The Way" movie shouldn't be so hard to produce. Just make some 3D backdrops, turn your actors into several Bruce Lee's so they can jump Plunge-style, and start filming!
