See I already knew that but since there was no response I assumed there was a piece missing. That the cycles indeed power the Warrens but there needed to be something else done to be considered a cycle. Since you know, Ciro did die.

So the reason why it had to be the Target specifically was because of the Astral Influx itself, instead of being a different sibling.

What I was going to actually suggest before realizing that it was just a mistake was that despite a "death" wiping out memories and abilities, the Astral Influx itself hadn't been wiped, so the memories of the players were still present and thus the cycle was "broken", and that the true way to end and start a cycle anew would be to have the big soul amalgam that is the Narrative Control be wiped of all memories to avoid metagaming.

We've even got the theorycrafting engine going again, already, lmao

That said, it's worth bearing in mind that a lot of the things we learned behind-the-scenes might be subject to change.

It's been a source of pride for me ever since I came back from several years of cryogenic preservation and saw that 8)

Also, I just got back from my trip. It'll still take a bit to get all the images together for the return update.

Sounds like it's time to start building up the hype.

I've heard the news...

When's the last time I posted in this thread? Like seven years ago? The very thought makes me acutely aware of the very fabric of time gradually turning me to dust.

Haven't clicked on my 'updated topics' shortcut in years, randomly checked it today and saw this. I mainly-lurked before and I can mainly-lurk again. Posting again to watch again.

Good to see a lot of familiar names, too.

And then, they will be weaponized. Like everything in this game, from kittens to babies, everything is a potential device of murder.
So if baseless speculation is all we have, we might as well treat it like fact.

TBH I kinda wish someone, perhaps me, would revive this in some form. "The Warrens of Ciro the Awesome" starting with our silver haired protagonist dropping into DL1.
It's a cool idea, but I seriously doubt that I have the dedication to sustain something this size.

You know what, I think I'd be up for it.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

I'm missing a good chunk of the assets, so they'll have to be recreated, but my memory for this game is still sharp, and I'm fairly sure I can still do these character voices.

Maybe I won't finish, but I might as well give it one more go. I'll have to juggle job-work and other things, so it's a bit of a toss-up, of course.

Would anyone be interest in one more go at finishing the Warrens of Oric the Awesome in 2022?

Because I sure would like to resolve my number one regret in this life, even if it takes some extra years.

I don't know how many people who still remember this game are even around anymore. I only recently started browsing and posting here again.

the Reudh shudders and begins to move

Good to see this legendary game arise once more.

FFS probably changed his mind. The story he wanted to tell in Warrens was a very ambitious one. I can imagine FFS remembering the sheer scale of the thing and weeping.

Reminds me of when I wanted to write a Fire emblem Fates fanfic. When I realized that the story I wanted to tell had a scope as large as Avatar the Last Airbender, I lost basically all of my motivation. It would have been a great story, but I am not the person to tell it. Still proud of the stuff I did write, but it will never see the light of day.

I came to terms with the end of Warrens years ago.
