Manga Mausoleum / Griffith's dream (no, not that one)
« on: February 10, 2009, 05:46:23 PM »
In volume 10, while Griffith is in his cell, he has a sort of "waking dream" about Guts.  The exact wording escapes me at the moment, but he refers to Guts as "the one who made me forget my dream" or something to that effect.  Griffith echoes those words just before he agrees to make the sacrifice.  I was curious as to what the meaning behind the vision might be.  Any thoughts?

Video Games / Text-based games... MUDs, etc.

Anyone here into text-based MU*'s?  I used to do a lot of this sort of thing, but I haven't found any I like recently.  I'm kind of interested in creating my own world based on the "Dawn of Time" codebase, as well.

Speculation Nation / Idea's Ultimate Goal
« on: May 28, 2008, 02:06:18 AM »
With respect to the debatable canon of "God of the Abyss," lately I've been contemplating Idea's ultimate goal... and I think I'm prepared enough to post my hypothesis.  Then I'll eagerly await your collective thoughts.

First, let me state that in large part, the basis of my prediction lies on one statement - by Idea - "I am the God that man created."

Now, if you're a person of faith, you'll disagree, but all the mythologies of the world - the real one, not the Berserk one - were also created by man.  And in the majority of these are contained some reason for human suffering.  As Idea says, "humans desired a reason for their suffering."  Original Sin, the treachery of Loki, or simply the conflict between the Olympic powers are all examples of this.

Many of these mytholgies also include an element of hope - the end of suffering.  The return of Christ, Ragnarok - the promise of a better world.

Now, if Idea was created by man, perhaps, like the mythologies of our own world, his end was also imagined.  And perhaps his manipulation of Causality serves to ultimately create the conditions for his own demise.

Granted, I have no idea how a God plans his death... And I'll admit my assertions are flimsy... But has anyone else surmised this?

Character Cove / Skull Knight's affinity for the Berserker's Armor
« on: May 06, 2008, 02:24:09 AM »
While ol' Skully is probably the hardest character to assess, because little direct information about him is presented, he seems to me the antithesis of what the armor of berserk is.

The question to me, then, is whether SK's cold, rational demeanor is a result of his time spent in the armor... or if it's the reason he gave it up.
Did the armor sap all of his feeling -- rage or otherwise -- or was he an emotionless person unable to fully meld with the armor?  Or something else?
