Since reaching 20, nothing can stand up to Empowered Greater Maelstorms...I was gibbing Eotans.

Some thoughts on
Rymrgand:


If Rymrgand is just as fake as the other gods, then the inevitablity of universal heat death may also be a lie.


however...


There are more gods than there are alcoves in the Engwithan god-making machine...

The Engwithan gods are representations of their cultural values turned up to 11. Iovara has a line at the end of the first game that explains this (paraphrasing her: “anything taken to an extreme becomes grotesque”). Every mythology has a creation myth and an “end of the world” myth. Rymrgand is the latter.

"Myth" being the key word here. Just because people believe it doesn't make it true. Rymrgand may well believe that his eventual victory is inevitable, but that doesn't make it true.

Yeah, but what does that have to do with Rymrgand? Entropy existed before him, it will exist long after his death (which will predate the heat death of the universe by a long time). Entropy isn't dependent on his existence, he's merely a charlatan who claims that it does.

 

Does Rymrgand ever claim to be the cause of entropy? He very clearly enjoys entropy, and works in the interests of advancing it along his own inscrutable timeline, but I don't think there's any indication that he pretends to be its source.

I think a lot of Gods pretend to be a little more grandiose than they really are. No doubt anyone here hasn't caught on that they put on airs. I'll be interested in seeing what Rymrgard has to say and if he's not just giving our Watchers the run around.

Hey. To be honest I only started it because people have been super sensitive to the tiniest spoilers.
I can’t believe you just used the word “spoilers”. This is supposed to be a non-spoiler forum. FFS!

If I could I'd spoiler block the title of the spoiler block hiding my use of the word spoilers, but alas I cannot.
