I am currently procrastinating on writing more of the last chapter of my fic in favor of roleplaying. So I agree. Continue to procrastinate.

If anyone wants to play some dark or eldritch gods, feel free to pay my Reign of Shadow and Blood interest check a look.

I wonder how a Shadows of The Forbidden Gods roleplay would go.


You are not you--you have no body, no blood, no bones, you are but a thought. I myself have no existence; I am but a dream--your dream, a creature of your imagination. In a moment you will have realized this, then you will banish me from your visions and I shall dissolve into the nothingness out of which you made me. I am perishing already, I am failing, I am passing away.

In a little while you will be alone in shoreless space, to wander its limitless solitudes without friend or comrade forever—for you will remain a thought, the only existent thought, and by your nature inextinguishable, indestructible. But I, your poor servant, have revealed you to yourself and set you free. Dream other dreams, and better!

Strange! that you should not have suspected years ago—centuries, ages, eons, ago!—for you have existed, companionless, through all the eternities.

Strange, indeed, that you should not have suspected that your universe and its contents were only dreams, visions, fiction! Strange, because they are so frankly and hysterically insane—like all dreams: a God who could make good children as easily as bad, yet preferred to make bad ones; who could have made every one of them happy, yet never made a single happy one; who made them prize their bitter life, yet stingily cut it short; who gave his angels eternal happiness unearned, yet required his other children to earn it; who gave his angels painless lives, yet cursed his other children with biting miseries and maladies of mind and body; who mouths justice and invented hell—mouths mercy and invented hell—mouths Golden Rules, and forgiveness multiplied by seventy times seven, and invented hell; who mouths morals to other people and has none himself; who frowns upon crimes, yet commits them all; who created man without invitation, then tries to shuffle the responsibility for man's acts upon man, instead of honorably placing it where it belongs, upon himself; and finally, with altogether divine obtuseness, invites this poor, abused slave to worship him!

You perceive, now, that these things are all impossible except in a dream. You perceive that they are pure and puerile insanities, the silly creations of an imagination that is not conscious of its freaks—in a word, that they are a dream, and you the maker of it. The dream-marks are all present; you should have recognized them earlier.

It is true, that which I have revealed to you; there is no God, no universe, no human race, no earthly life, no heaven, no hell. It is all a dream—a grotesque and foolish dream. Nothing exists but you. And you are but a thought—a vagrant thought, a useless thought, a homeless thought, wandering forlorn among the empty eternities!

No sites of lost grace, or at least not in the way that they function in the game. The guidance of grace being visible as rays of light makes sense and should stay, and perhaps this light converges at locations that would make for good resting spots, but that's as far as it should go. It doesn't have a useful place in a written narrative, in my opinion.

>Also, if I may play devil's advocate for a moment... allowing Grace--while yes it is just a video game mechanic more than anything really--it would also allow players to explore the idea that this particular cast of Tarnished, or at least one of their number, is working cooperatively to seat an Elden Lord so their immortality can finally end. Recall that these are the same people who left with Godfrey in all likelihood, probably fought and died horribly, only to get torn away from death's sweet embrace by an absentee space god or possibly the Erdtree/Marika. And who are currently having to undergo more trauma that they can't really forget but always come back from, in a setting where mental health is about the furthest thing imaginable from the average person's hierarchy of needs.

>So allowing Grace, while it would need to be handled carefully, could create an opportunity for a darker and more depressing tale. Or a character who just wants an Elden Lord, regardless of how well said individual would actually do, so they can finally die and be at peace. Again, not pushing too hard for this--since I'm not even planning on participating due to my own Elden Ring related story I've harped on more than enough--but I do think there is a narrative place for it if done correctly. And it also fits the whole theme of everything going to shit that FromSoft seems to love exploring.
>Just chiming in to say that anything draconic in any FromSoft title eventually leads to something unpleasant. Especially if you're trying to become one. Just look at the wyrm enemies and sentinels. Not saying it can't provide ample storytelling opportunities mind, just that if it is used beyond communion it's probably going to suck for the Tarnished in question.

>Unless your Tarnished hates eating organs, in which case it'll suck regardless as they'll need to eat a dragon's heart. At least I assume that's what communion involves. It could also be some strange arcane grafting procedure.

>Bump, still looking.
Progress is still coming on the supercollab, but by its nature of involving so many people it's cumbersome and the inevitable IRL things that some people have had to deal with have slowed it.

In any case, to help with the IC slowdown, I'm thinking I'll make a more mortal-centric post about an emerging heresy. Perhaps that is something that Isaac will be able to plug into if he wants to support a group of humans that are rising up against the gods. @Zyx

>Depends on the heresy. And also on whether or not said people are willing to listen to a recon drone.
>It's been dead for a year. Doubt it's coming back.
