This is the last Delta post this week, I swear…until Sunday, that is.
So Plan X is to form some kind of enormous mind network. Roid doesn’t deny it when Berger calls to confirm things for himself so yea, this is probably the only thing he has left to hide from everyone.
But…for what purpose is he going to use this network? If it’s not mind control, is it mind brainwash?
Honestly, what’s the difference? Does he want to delve into the heads of all sentient beings and rework something in their brains to make them think Windermere is superior to other races? Or is to search for the reason why Windermereans in particular can only live an average of 30 years?
…*gasp* Is he planning to have them all go through massive body jumping? Cuz I don’t think that’s the solution to living longer, Roid. :/
Really, I have no clue. What’s more…
I haven’t the faintest idea of what that’s got to do with the Protoculture/Star Singer thingy he keeps going on about.
But it’s nice that we got some confirmation that he’s not just embellishing the details of their heritage. The Star Singer (or what Roid refers to them as in the modern day) did exist.
I mean, you can’t get better proof than a giant stone slab with an ancient drawing on it suddenly coming down out of nowhere and lighting up after you utter the magic words.
As for all the sparklies rising up from the ground when Roid is the only person in the room (chamber, whatever), I suspect it’s because he’s always worked in close proximity of those structures. Roid comes from a family who takes care of the ruins so maybe it’s their and his prolonged relation with the mysticism that grants them access to the Protoculture secrets.
I’m just hazarding a guess, though, but the fact that Roid can activate the hidden parts of this room and receive some sort of message from the beyond (however you want to describe it) when Heinz, the actual Wind Singer, can’t is something to take note of.
Finally, we’ve got this smirky rat riding on our coat tails and it looks like there’s a good chance Berger might become the final boss.
Sure, Roid is the one with the plan but Epsilon is actually the ones managing the resources. Berger is only too aware that Roid won’t share his findings with Epsilon but it’s no big deal because there’s plenty of ways for Berger to double cross Roid. Expose Roid’s secret to the public, turn Windermere against him and watch as they strip him of his title and have him hanged all while Epsilon quietly swoops in to steal Roid’s research that no one else knows about. Or deliberately screw with their own reports that are handed to Roid to throw his plan off while having the effects play into Epsilon’s favor. And those are just to name a few.
It’s not hard to imagine anything like that happening because Roid is preoccupied with other things at the moment, especially his worries on much time he has left. This effectively blocks the idea that Berger is becoming more of a threat from his perspective. And if Berger doesn’t show up on his alarm radar, Roid will continue to underestimate what Berger is really capable of. Which, as we all know, is very dangerous.
Don’t mess with people from the arms industry, Roid. They gonna fuck you up.
Anyways, I’m kinda hoping that Berger really will be the last boss. Not only because I don’t want Roid to be filling that role but also because I want to see Roid get his shot at redemption. If they’ll let him have one…*prays* >.<
C’mon, let’s face it. When it comes down to who’s the bigger evil here, all fingers are going to point at Berger. :P
