Oh, and just seems people have missed it. Who are we? We're an entity in the warrens(spirit fight), our discussions can be heard by both Oric and Ciro, yet we can't interfere. Maybe we're the true prisoners of the warrens, locked up in the minds of the target.

I find the idea that the Siblings are entertainment for the prisoners rather funny.

That theory can be filed alongside "The world was made 5 minutes ago like it had a previous history" for the present.

What? It got some support.

Oric literally remarked on our OOC discussion after the Polaris fight, we appear in the Soul battles, and Ciro often ends up discussing things with us (Mostly calling us crazy or stuff).
It's certain that we're an existing entity, somewhere in the warren's universe.


It occurs to me that perhaps we should wonder why Oric knows everything we say and do. Seriously, everything. He knew about the Ratings Star conversation we'd had just off-screen, and we intercepted that code in the Greens that knew more about Ciro remembering his past lives than Ciro did herself.

Note: It also explains why our theorycrafting gives boni. As we understand more, so does our "avatar/puppet" Ciro.

True. However, actual proof is beyond reach, and effects from the truth or falsity of the theory are fairly minor and likely imperceptible.

Pretty sure that it would tie in with the nature of oversoul, and the nature of the warrens, both being rather important things. But yes, can't really test it.

Well, even if it did, how? And I don't think we know enough about the nature of either to be able to figure out anything from the knowledge that we're the prisoners.

Oh. Dammit. *facepalm* How'd I manage to miss that?

Then why pick it up? The chest ain't going anywhere.

Well, Ciro did mention something about wanting to sit on a throne surrounded by all the treasure. Some of said treasure is in this box. Therefore, this box should be relocated to near a throne.  :P

Seriously, though... Unless we can come up with an alternate solution to open the box, it may as well stay there.

Obtain ladder. Put ladder on chest lid. Climb down into treasure.

...Where did we leave the ladder, anyways?

Isn't it still the only way from DL 1 to DL 2?

We got to DL2 this time through the Sub-D, where we found Riltia, via a teleport pad. We originally came to DL2 via the ladder, but it's likely that room got randomized, and the ladder may no longer be there. AFTER we fight Proxxy and get Al and Riltia back, I am all in favor of searching for the ladder.

Just my thoughts on the Oversoul, and how it has an underlying plot to anything and everything we see or do.

Agreed.
Especially since Riltia's dumb fighter strength has the best chance of getting us back down.

The new theory sounds interesting...I hope freeform confirms it.
