As per D&D, immortals tend to have an extraordinary amount of hobbies. With what Unknown said, she probably would have stepped in if necessary but with Ergo Mundus and Nameless there took the opportunity to get a magical power source. Now, what the intent for the seed of Baal was is another matter.Superhero escribió: ↑28 Jun 2018 13:33As a reminder Etheldrea is one of the many people who sealed Baal during the third shadow wars (Baal the Gate of Hell), before the fourth shadow wars: Ergo Mundus.
She probably planned it for a very long time.
2 years is technically nothing for people who are basically immortal. I mean even the Unknown mentioned that it had been planning the events for many years. Etheldrea never seemed to be the kind to rush things.
Still tho, there are a lot of things I wonder about this. But then again, I suppose that it is hard to know what she would want. Etheldrea can open portals to other planes of existence at will (one of her unique powers), and when the book said she had many supernatural friends that would come to her aid at any time...with Unknown obviously part of her list of friends now obviously using Ergo as a puppet under her control or probably letting unknown control it...Etheldrea is very scary to say the least.
Yeah she never seemed like an antagonist to me, but then again...who knows what's her main goal is. I mean even in Gaia vol II quests, she is listed as one of the possible contacts for players to protect Spheria against Guideon squad assault on the city. But then again, she might just do it because of her promise to protect Spheria.
I personally figured it was maybe to tap the Dragon Lines? I mean wasn't Baal's initial gameplan to use its abilities to infect the Dragon Lines and absorb all the power?
I do like the idea that Unknown is related in some way to Millenium, but eh hard to say (always figured she was an elan 100 with Uriel).
As for using Ergo Mundus, I mean at the very least he's proven to be one of Gaia's most effective supernatural battering rams. Maybe to break into Tol Rauko because they wouldn't be prepared for him this time? Beyond that no ideas, I mean I kinda figured Etheldrea had already outlived all her old enemies with the Church being more of an annoyance. Although looking at her links to Megas Therion, Order of Yehudah, and Espheria, she seems to have a habit of "trying to make it work" between mundane folks and the supernatural so maybe there's something there.
