    Default Discussion - The Big Book of Eth Conspiracy

    Everyone has heard of this book at some point. Hands down Brother Jebiah's most well known literary work. Is it the ramblings of a deeply disturbed dwarf? Or is it a near-divine tome of prophecy? Or is it a relic of Aia? Only CaptainCursor knows...

    But lets discuss it anyways.

    Text from the book as it appears in-game is as follows

    "The Eth with their industrialized sin have not left Telara, but have arranged for all our troubles as

    part of an insidious plan." - Brother Jebiah

    The Big Book of Eth Conspiracy

    Ancient Sorcerer-Kings Engineer
    6 simultaneous elemental incursions
    6 elements = 6 sided cube
    Telara = the 7th side
    6 cube sides + 7 planar frequencies
    13 cities of the Eth
    Simultanious dimension incursion Ouroboros
    Destroyer dragon is Sorcerer-king of the Eth
    Catari ruled Catari with blade of Catari
    Death unto death unto undeath
    Knowing opposites of elements leads to inverted cube
    7th side is internal with inverted elements
    Convocation destroyed not Eth but Telara
    Death form of Telara invaded by elements
    Destroyer is inside simultaneous six sided cube
    Rotating elemental rifts predicted by Sorcerer Arkeen
    Ancient eth city of cyclopes
    One eye = one world = 7 sides = 7 eyed creature
    14 simultanious dimensional sight = dimensions undreamed of
    Sorcerer king Mkhai creation of elemental portals
    7 planar frequences!
    7th frequency to 7th frequency
    14 simultaneous sided cube
    YOU WILL KNOW ETERNAL PAIN OF THE OUROBOROS
    No purity of cube side
    No purity of life

    Some random thoughts/notes i made while reading/transcribing.

    The seventh planar frequency is obviously 'war'. But does this frequency correspond to Telara?
    Multiple versions of telara? Slivers?
    OUROBOROS = eternal war?
    Eth perfected a form of dimensional travel former to downfall. The Sorcerer king's right hand engineer was named Orphiel.

    The only other time the term "Ourboros" is mentioned is in the invisible NPC in Tarken, "Aegmir, Skald of Threngar"
    Ogg the pure, who killed his own child Dalendel, spawn of Azdah the Ouroboros. The dragon had submitted to Ghadual the warrior, and became his mount. Ogg demanded his child renounce the gods and join him, and then slew her on the spot when she refused.
    Link

    Azdah being...
    Before words of creation, before Azdah's dragon brood, the Akvan ruled through terror.
    Link

    It's interesting a book from the beginning of the game mentioned Ourboros.
    Since it's so rarely mentioned in the game, we can assume that the terms are referring to the same thing.

    It's almost as if the devs and CC had more of a mythos of the Rift world than some of us think. lol

    I'm sure that book has hints at stuff, but it's hard to decipher due to it intentionally being worded confusingly.

    So, essentially, now that we've killed the dragons, we have their vengeful dad to deal with?

    Possibly. Or the dad was behind it all along.

    OR Azdah is a Risar like Draum and just is.

    Hmmm... now that i think about it, what are the odds that Brother Jebiah is an ascended of Aia? It would explain a LOT.

    I so need to go back and re-read all these.

    Well considering the only Tenebrean on Telara that we know of is Orphiel, I mean it's entirely possible there is one who's been working "behind the lines" if CC decides there is.

    Considering we still know next to nothing about the powers, limits and creation process of the Vigil/Aia, the Ascended and Tenebreans that anything is possible.
    Or even fully understand how the planes and dimensions even work.
    Anything is possible.

    Be vague enough that you have room to make new story lines without going against lore, but clear enough that it seems like you're not just making stuff up as you go. lol

    So anyone one of the "heroes" of Telara could be a traitor. Like Jebiah.

    So a while back I believe CC said Oprhiel was in the NT expansion just hidden or in disguise. I don't know where to tack this on but this could be a cool topic to speculate on. So if he is not some invisible npc we have likely already seen either his real form without knowing it or he is in disguise. Any suspicions? I dunno why but my gut says he may be the planar wanderer who tells you about the Akvan and plane of water in that specialty rift.

    It's too hard to guess. No one seems to know where or what form the cameo is in, and I doubt CC would throw us a bone on that one.

    Also I don't recall this Planar Wanderer. I forget most of the Nightmare Rift stuff and I don't know if I have it in my pile of pics. Is if a story quest or is it some dude in that instanced zone where you learn about NIghtmare Rifts?

    If I threw you a bone I wouldn't be able to surprise you with a reveal later.

    "bone". Everyone concentrate on that word, "bone"!
    We have a CrystalRex.jpg concept art from Archonix' recent letter.

    It's clear we're getting a Prehistoric/Dinosaur-themed Plane of Earth expansion with Orphiel commanding the legions of dinos.

    Or...perhaps Orphiel is hidden in a "bone". Indeed.

    All I know is I want that bone so bad. I don't care who's it is!











    .......Waitthat'snotwhatImean.......

    Also with the rumoured name of the new calling being "primalist" and a dinosaur/desert looking concept art. Things are starting to sound a little Earthy.
    Whether that's a hint to the planes, or the theme of the PTWs, who knows.

    Can't remember if lore dictates that PTW fell to a specific plane, or if it was just the planes in general.
