Femto didn't make a prophecy. Or did you mean the prophecy read by Farnese in vol 14 and Schierke in vol 22 regarding the Falcon of Darkness?Black_Devil said:Excellent stuff from this episode. Though I'm really iffy on this episode for one reason, that being all the shiningness and sparkles are kind of unsettling considering 's "prophecy", wonder how long it's gonna last since everyone's marching in there like sheep to the slaughter so to speak.
It's been commented on for the past 5 pages actually, particularly the similarity between this architecture/style and that in Gaiseric's time. Where've you been?edit: also a small comment about the statues on the entrance, did they remind anyone else of Roman soldiers? Was a pretty cool touch imo.

Yeah, in spite of any breaks, it doesn't really feel like it's been what, close to a year? It all ends up blurring together eventually. Time flies when you're getting old!Vampire_Hunter_Bob said:This is like a chain reaction of awesome episodes. Hell it doesn't even feel like it's been that long since Ganishka jumped into the apostle meat ball.
Whoa, missed this earlier! You and I called it from our earlier discussionAazealh said:About what's being said in the episode, there is talk of northern legends as well concerning the tree, and Foss mentions the legendary capital that was buried under Wyndham before changing his mind, saying it couldn't possibly be the work of mortal men. The Pontiff then starts speaking of Falconia.
Yeah, thanks for the reminder But whether they were God Hand or angel doesn't change Judo's story, or my point, at all. What's in question is Gaiseric's popularity after building the capital. My point is that his extravagant empire came at a price, as did Griffith's, though at a very different price.Black_Devil said:But you don't think the story as told through Judo had been skewered Walter? With the possibility of the angels being the godhand(though not confirmed), I'm still reluctant to believe things went down as was written.
Walter said:: "Hey, nice capital gramps. I think I'll take it."
Well, yeah I suppose. But Gaiseric didn't built it himself you know . And there's the other piece of the legend of why his subjects lost faith in him. According to Mozgus and Judo, after the capital was built, he taxed them heavily while living a life of extravagance inside his massive capital. A centralized empire like that probably wouldn't see very many benefits to outlying colonies (can't even really call them countries at this point, since they were all one back then. Which could have led to unrest and disdain.Black_Devil said:Griffith's has literally sacrificed the state of the world to achieve what Gaiseric did, so obviously the price here is much higher, and like you mentioned, Gaiseric's kingdom was real in that it didn't require supernatural elements to be built, so while Falconia is all bright and sparkly, Gaiseric should be praised as he didn't have all the backing Griffith did.
Well, so far we're just talking about the chat between Foss and the Pontiff in this episode. Foss seems to recognize Falconia as the ancient capital, but then says that there are aspects of the city that weren't made by human hands (Im paraphrasing here, pending a full translation).Okin said:Wait, so are we considering that this city appeared from the astral where the "idea" of Gaiseric's capital existed?
