The Duskborn storyline is kind of fascinating to me, because the story makes pains to suggest that Those Who Live In Death have an existence worth preserving and protecting... but then never actually provides any evidence of that, which rather undermines the reading of the text that posits them as a persecuted minority. Think about it, Fia is a tarnished, like the protagonist, and while her role as a deathbed companion does give her a unique perspective on life and death... it doesn't exactly make her one of those she advocates for, nor do we see any indication that she is any more capable of communication with them than we are. None of Those Who Live In Death interact with the world in any manner other than hostility, there is not a single friendly undead of that sort, and frankly, nothing that even suggests they posses sapience, that they are anything more than the mindless puppets of a Soul-Dead god. Bloodborne presents us with a strong alternative in Old Yharnum, presenting a Tableau that none-too-subtly suggests that beasts have inner lives, and are capable of ritualistic, spiritualist and communal thinking with their chanting in the church. Existing as One Who Lives In Death genuinely seems to be nothing but A: suffering, or B: Nothingness as far as their depiction in practice reads. Fortissax's own death-curse affliction is explicitly from him trying and failing to prevent it overcoming his friend. Even Fia's own champions are less beings with agency in their own right, then memories of the fallen, no more boon companions than bondservants. And yet... preserving and protecting this force, little more than a Zombie Apocalypse in its structure, is presented as at least a point about which the morality can be debated, rather than dismissed out of hand... it feels like there's something missing, a third beat where we actually see what life is like for Those That Live In Death, something that justifies them as sapient beings worth protection.
@DonDomaMobster 6 meses atrás
I agree with you, and thus I have formulated my own idea about the subject, that being: Fia is probably just full of shit (and a necrophile). Actually the necrophilia is pretty much canon as she claims that sleeping with corpses (being a Deathbed Companion) is the most beautiful thing there is. And since it's a sacred act in her lands, I wonder what society is like there, especially since the laws of life and death seem to work differently from the Lands Between. Maybe her ideals make sense with how things work in her lands, but just don't translate well in the Lands Between. Who knows how Order is there. Maybe the Duskborn ending is about modifying the Lands Between's Order in a way that works like her lands' Order!
@jcdenton810 5 meses atrás
I think you're correct that there's something missing, but I think part of the narrative is that Those That Live In Death do not communicate and they have no champion because there was no intention to create them, they were a consequence of Godwyn's death. The idea that the undead are suffering seems unfounded, it's only the living that suffer from the encroachment of Deathroot, because Marika's crazy and removed death in the first place, making the Golden Order anathema to it. Those That Live In Death are hostile and can't communicate with the living and the Golden Order can, but I think the actions of many characters, including D, show that "approachable" and "good" are not the same thing. Its up to the player to decide whether they trust the familiar, or side with the genuinely wretched and maligned.
@leviadragon99 5 meses atrás
@@jcdenton810 There's a difference between standing up for an oppressed minority... and standing up for literal mindless zombies. Animals can Suffer, if Those Who Live In Death do not even meet that threshold of cognition, then again I must ask, what about their existence is worth protecting or preserving? Granted, we can't know for sure what their inner lives (if any) look like, but if you want to build empathy from a storytelling perspective, you kind of need to depict critical details like that.
@sharkattack153 4 meses atrás
In my eyes at least Elden ring presents this as more of an emotional dilemma; betray someone who has shown you some degree of kindness and warmth (albeit entirely for their own gain) or side with logic that's championed by cold hypocrites. In terms of an actual ethical dilemma, I'd agree; there isn't much of one.

@Nines :3 the ppl were already living and reincarnating without an issue even after the rune of death was removed, like you said it is not their fault that they were corrupted by poor godwyns death roots, but it is also not godwyns fault nor the golden order, if you want to blame someone for why they came to be it would be the vile wench ranni for doing what she did and causing all this torment. Those living in death are unnatural they are not living yet they are not dead their existence is simply Pain (I am very sure those wandering skeletons are not happy). Since they can no longer reincarnat through the erdtree the golden order seem to just want to put them down and give them a true death. That is why I defend the twins unless you and the undead all across the land were happily making love to each other I am sure you noticed all of them (save for fia) are aggressive and dangerous and the twins and those like them work to put an end to the damage caused by ranni
@bruschetta7711 7 meses atrás
@Nines :3 yeah but i don't get why Darian would deserve to die like that, sure he would not understand those who live in death and hunt them, Fia had it coming, afterall i don't see why praising Godwyn which died in spirit, compare it to Ranni whose soul hold her true essence, Godwyn only has the body, which is literally nothing quite like the guy he used to be, someone who befriended the dragons and had mercy of them, it's why Fortissax's reaction is understandable, the Prince of death and Godwyn might have the same body, but they are 2 completely different entities

To tell the truth, though I know Ranni's ending will be the last ending explained, I would still love to see Goldmask's storyline and the Golden Order Fundamentalists rendered in Prepare to Cry.

Also something to note is that Goldmask constantly speaks of the importance of trying to understand both the good and bad of something so you can only leave the good part instead of blindly believing dogma, but since we have know idea WHAT Goldmask is actually doing we can only put in blind faith into his order, ironically the only way for his Goldmask’s order to become the one true one is for someone who will blindly follow pretty words, the things he himself criticize.

@@impartialthrone2097 Honestly the GW itself does very little. It sent the Elden Beast/Ring, then after that did basically nothing directly except *maybe* banishing the Eternal Cities underground (this could've just been the Two Fingers also). It's the Golden Order and especially the Two Fingers that are responsible for most of the atrocities we see committed in its name. I still think Ranni's Age of Stars is a better outcome for the Lands Between, but Goldmask's ending is second best imo.

You dont inspire that kind of loyalty from someone you fought a war with unless you are personally a good person. If you are reffering to him being apart of the golden order as the reason for him being a tyrant, we have no idea the extent of his role or influence in the golden order, so it is unreasonable to pin the sins of the golden order on him

I never understood what happened to Rogier. Met him in the castle on my way to kill Godrick. Then found him on the balcony at Roundtable Hold sometime after. Noticed flies around him and something strange peeking out from under the blanket covering his legs. So I took a peek with some clever camera movement and noticed the roots sticking out of his legs. I was like "What the hell happened to this guy?!" But by this point I was already in Liurnia, so I had missed some dialogue and he was telling me to go meet Ranni, so I did. Came back to him one last time and he said he was gonna take a nap. I was like "Okay...weird, but this is a Souls game after all." Then, after some exploration, I came back to find him gone, replaced by his armor set. Never saw him again, so I assumed he died. Looked it up on the wiki later and found out he had a whole questline I missed. Maaaan, what a bummer. Next time I make a character, I'll follow the steps on the wiki and see this guy's questline through.

I know Iam not crazy when I talk about this since I swear a dynamic world reacting to your choices used to be fairly common.

She couldn’t call off “the family” and their bushwhack but she sent me some drones for back up and warned me.

Well, this certainly clears up some loose ends on the story leading up to the duskborn ending, most notably when it comes to both D's. Unfortunately, this does very little to clear up what actually becomes of the world during the age of duskborn, which is easily the most nebulous ending in the game: Do the people of the lands all end up becoming souless skeletons/corpses now? Do the souless skeletons now end up truly reborn as complete human beings instead? Did it only just reintroduce death into the system and disable rebirth and immortality? I know there isn't much in the game that can give a clear answer, but there should have been an attempt at it all the same.

Is it possible that Empyreans are beings with both a male and female persona? I'm just realizing that we have Merika/Radagon, Ranni/Godwyn, and Malenia/Miquella. Ranni hatches a plot trying to free herself from this duality, killing the flesh that she and Godwyn shared with one half of the Rune of Death, while destroying the spirit of Godwyn with the other half. The story of D also seems to be tied up in themes of conjoined siblings or persona. Also, I don't think that it's a coincidence that the only part of Miquella we ever see is the one part of Malenia that is missing. Could the desire to live free as an individual be the motivation that often drives an Empyrean's actions? They seem to have Shadows that are appointed to stop them from achieving this, as well.

Amazing as always, you and your companions are at the heart of this community, thank you for all the work you do. I really hope you'll see this comment, you probably won't but if you do. Please, PLEASE give a shoutout to @The Tarnished Archaeologist. If you haven't heard of him check out some of his videos. He does such a great job analysing the environments and item descriptions and uses real life history and theology do interpret the lore of Elden Ring. I think he is on your level, no offense but he might even be slightly above when it comes to the knowledge and research he does. It's incredible, at first glance it seems like he might be reaching but once you see a few of his videos you realize that it's impossible that there are so many dots that can be put together for it all to be a coincidence. The Tarnished Archaeologist deserves a louder voice in the lore community and you have the opportunity to gift him that. If you see this, please just give him a chance. Thank you and keep up the good work!

A well made video. The problem with the Age of the Duskborn ending is that I just can't view it as nuanced, even if they were going for that. The only person claiming to speak for Those Who Live in Death is not undead herself, and every undead in the game attacks you on sight. Also, I don't like her hugs, that's weird. Compare this to the demihumans, who we know are capable of intelligence, because we can befriend one and learn about his hopes and dreams. Kenneth Haight, while a bit of a douche, can also befriend and negotiate with the demihumans, and the demihuman leaders often cast sorceries, which are Intelligence based magic.
@ekosandvic7598 7 meses atrás
You can't quite tell tho if those who live in Death always did attack everyone in sight. Maybe they started doing that overtime after being persecuted for too long. And even if they are mindless maybe they need to be rested differently other than being attacked by holy magic. Maybe Fia knew a way to calm them down since she has never been hostile to them. It's okay you find her hugs weitd tho. Understandable if you view it on a social perspective. But I am very thankful that they are added in the game and it's sweet to just hear her talk.

@@Manganization He's been entirely won over by her philosophy that the undead have done nothing wrong and don't deserve persecution and that having Fia gestate the mending rune will be a means of salvation for the undead. This is not a logical conclusion for anyone to come to. Rogier goes from being someone trying to discover the truth of deathroot, fighting the undead alongside D, to someone who has been indoctrinated to Fia's cause--so much so that he even dies a second death defending her at Godwin's corpse. In more relatable terms, let's say you have a friend who you play basketball with and he's really into the history of the sport. One day he meets a woman who thinks basketball is racist and should be cancelled, so he stops hanging out with you, stops playing basketball, and commits his life to ending the sport. This woman is notoriously promiscuous and offers 'comfort' to those who side with her. Your friend dies in an anti-basketball rally. The woman who has convinced him of all of this then later finds and kills you. Was your friend 1. Just a noble scholar of basketball history trying to find the truth or 2. A good dude that was led astray by a hussie? Sorry, man, Rogier simped for Fia and died chasing her nonsense cause.

@@varsoonhks3211 But Rogier and D wasn’t that kind of friends. They worked together, yes, but their motivation were ultimately different. One is a devout follower of the Golden Order and all that it stood for, while the other is a scholar who wishes to learn about Those Who Live In Death and the Night of the Black Knifes. Their path crossed due to the nature of their objectives, but it only made sense that they eventually went separate path. And regarding your stance on Fia’s goal, have you watched the video? Fia’s goal was not to worship Those Who Live in Death, but to create an Age where Those Who Live in Death have the right to exist, and will have a purpose to live, unlike how they are in the current age, without purpose, goals, or really thought. Fia’s ending is simply give such thing to Those Who Live in Death by giving them a Lord to follow, because as a Deathbed Companion, it is in her belief that such beings has a right to such things. Now whether you agree or disagree with her belief and goal is up to you. Personally speaking, the ending doesn’t really solve any of the inherent problems in the land Between making it an okay ending at best.

Although it would've been better if you had mentioned something about the dusk/ gloam-eyed-queen; who originally wielded the power of destined death. So i hoped that she'd have some sort of significance in this ending or its outcome. I myself am quite confused about the subject and would appreciate if you made a video about your take on the topic.
