Elcia - The Regent

Mensaje por Sharpandpointies » 02 Feb 2017 12:59

So, I'm currently running a tabletop game set in Aydin, Elcia. The players aren't yet at the level where the truth about the Regent might be important (it might never be important, depending on that truth), but since we have AS here, I thought I'd inquire.

Is there any information regarding the Regent of Elcia and his 'interpreters'? Or is that something left open?

...I asked this on the old forum just before it imploded, but we didn't have AS there so I figured I'd ask again. ^_^

In the circle of bards after the release of Gaïa II, AS said that neither the regent nor his two assistants are human, but rather unique beings, and that the twins apparently can't tell Lord Xem what he is. It was compared to a pact, where the twins were bound to fulfill his orders to the best of their ability but couldn't tell him what he was, and AS said that that was at least somewhat correct.

I hope that helps.

AS did say that part of the character's charisma was that whatever he was, it was something unknown and different, so unless he has changed his mind, I doubt we are going to see more info about Xem any time soon.

Riiiight...I recall you told me this on the old Forum, just before it went kablooie. Still good information, which I will now copy down rather than assuming it will always be here for access...

Thank you! ^_^

I have some doubt that Xem is in reality Nascal. I explain: in Gate of Memories, we have his story, and we know in the story that we have two Nascal. The dead one, and the puppet. And we know that the puppet himself created one other. I have some doubt that "this one" is Xem, lost of memories because of Bringeus.

Also, another tip for my assumption: in one of the painting in Nascal's manor, there is a painting of a balsan (Elcia 's main and Xem type). And in this damn picture there is his name written with blood.

Your point of view? with it, I think that the two must be two of his puppets, In his sense they are meant to help him, but who he is, only himself can find if themselves are puppets.

Nascal doesn't exist anymore. Confirmed by the author even relatively recently in the incarnation question thread (Nascal can't be used as an incarnation.). Bringeus is some kind of a Noth apparently or at least got similar abilities.
-Nascal? (Gate of Memories)
None destroyed by Bringreus leave anything behind them.

May Nascal behave like Ultron from Marvel, and keep some copies of himself to reattach his soul and come back? (in a way that does not involve the Internet... the soul stream or some magic mumbo jumbo...

Bringeus is basically implied to be some sort of a Noth, which would mean that Nascal doesn't exist anymore...as in his soul didn't even go into the flow of souls. You can't find any trace of his soul anywhere.

See more information about the Noths in Gaia vol. 2 and Perfect World Guide (ask people about it) but essentially if you get killed by them...you cease to exist. Just like how Rah was destroyed from existence.

Although my current campaign isnt focused on Elcia. It has played an important part in it since one of my most maquiavelic players (a political mastermind head of various relevant Guilds) is from Elcia. I developed a fanmade background for the regent just in case it was relevant. It's very "this is top tier importance shit". But... the official info sounded like it was =P. Maybe it can help you with your own background:

"Without him knowing it, his real identity is... none. Xem Cortana is one of the last experiments from Imperium to control human politics. The creation of improved humans, exceptional but without reaching the level of high- calibre projects like Abel. The idea is that if they have no idea of their artificial status and of Imperium, they will be able to immerse themselves deeper in their responsibility towards their country. Taking their political ideas towards the wished path will be the task of Imperium agents designated as assistants (in this case, Nana and Gigi) and their insertion in society will be produced in a way that no one notices it, even if it involves collateral damage. Xem is the first of his kind. Imperium plans to maintain him in his role until his immortality becomes suspicious, and then relieve him to evaluate the viability of the project."

Well, I have one theory about this, most likely it is not true, but anyway.
Nascal created a puppet, which actually was named Rubedus, but somehow it believed it was an original Nascal. Rubedus, in turn, created Bringreus, this is why it uses Nascal's image.
