The One Way in Which Star Wars Is Unquestionably Superior to Lord of the Rings

Stock Nonhuman Good Guy Race in LOTR: Pointy eared aryans

Stock Nonhuman Good Guy Race in Star Wars: Squid-fish men with bulbous heads

Here’s a response to another level of authoritarianism entirely; pushing back against the nature of the universe

One of nature’s wonders, gentlemen: mother and children dining upon mother and children. And that’s when I first learned about evil. It is built into the very nature of the universe. Every world spins in pain. If there is any kind of supreme being, I told myself, it is up to all of us to become his moral superior. 

– Lord Vetinari | Terry Pratchett, Unseen Academicals

Also, while I think this is veering away from what Jan 20th Anon is looking for, it’s a quote that always makes me feel like I can do anything

“I don’t think you can fight a whole universe, sir!”
“It’s the prerogative of every life form, Mr Stibbons!”

– Terry Pratchett, The Science of Discworld III: Darwin’s Watch

I cannot get over this hadith 😍

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) (p.b.u.h) said, “Our Lord, the Blessed, the Superior, comes every night down on the nearest Heaven to us when the last third of the night remains, saying: “Is there anyone to invoke Me, so that I may respond to invocation? Is there anyone to ask Me, so that I may grant him his request? Is there anyone seeking My forgiveness, so that I may forgive him?”

(Bukhari 1145)

Elsword Player Personality Stereotypes Based on Main

Through the lens of a PvP Addict/one who primarily interacts with these characters through PvP. Because Neo is pretty damn sure that the character a player chooses to main is also indicative of their personality, either as a reflection of themselves or a result of playing that character and emulating them. I’d like to hear opinions and whether players agree/disagree with these sweeping assessments, as well.

Elsword: 
A bit hotheaded, but otherwise reasonable and without glaringly huge faults or flaws. Annoying in a “little brother” kind of way. May be among the first to call something out for being broken or stupid, even if it’s something they can do (either as an Elsword or through alts).

Aisha: Bullies.
Unquestionably, bullies who like to lord their superiority over other players. They enjoy taunting others and have a fetish for wasting time. Also, lately, the most likely to be hackers or defenders of hackers! Due to her mechanics making it very hard to pin down if and when she is abusing infinite mana or zero-second cooldowns.

Rena: VAIN above all else. Slime.
Picks the path of least resistance because that’s what works for their character. Does not like trying. Will take having to put effort into anything as an affront to their vanity. Will settle on one defining First-Order-Optimal tactic for each class on a server-wide scale, meaning all matches with that class are mind-numbingly similar. The most likely to buy JC tickets if their current path gets nerfed, which doesn’t change much as Rena’s personality is largely homogenous across all job paths. Slime.

Raven: I am biased.
BM and VC players are respectable, levelheaded types. Older BMs are of the determined, grit-your-teeth-and-bear-it type and are exceptionally reasonable and polite to talk with compared to other players. RFs are antagonistic and unreasonably fuck-ass mad all the time angry and aggressive in most situations, and are also the most likely to let their hotheadedness get the better of them, falling into bad habits when backed into a corner. VCs are somewhere in between, but lean more towards BM than RF on a sliding personality scale.

This is hearsay for me, but there is also apparently a significant representation of Latino players in the Raven community, which I’m chalking up to the fact that he’s the last Elsword-original character to have a realistic skin tone - darker than the other originals, at that. Every Elsword original character post-Raven has had paper-white #FFFFFF skin.

Eve: Personable. Cautious.
The kinds of mains who seem more likely to be involved in the community, as well. Doesn’t go out of their way to be antagonistic. Special subtypes for C:M, who falls a bit into Rena habits as well and expects her servants to do everything for her, and C:N, who tends to follow fashion and has a small subsection of primarily male players who are huge perverts. Due to being the dress-up doll for so long, a character much more likely to have a playerbase of heavy cashers, and all the nastiness that entails.

Chung: Super defensive about everything. 
You cannot deal with them in PvP without them being defensive. You cannot talk with them in conversation without them being defensive. You cannot call them out on being defensive without them being defensive. Ridiculously salty over being a trap regardless of whether the player identifies as male or female.

Ara:
More or less personable and friendly, except YR mains who picked the character because they know she’s the strongest. Those are just as much bullies as Aisha mains, if not worse.

Elesis: Very similar to Elsword, understandably.

Add: Asshole.
All Add mains I have met have been unrepentant assholes. Even female Add mains are assholes. Espers and Masterminds are especially unpleasant, being intentionally very antagonistic and massively salty whenever they lose. MM of the evasive never-my-fault variety and Esper being of the aggressive everyone-else’s-problem type. Lunatic Psykers are a bit better, being less openly malicious, but they also have a worrying tendency to not play smart. Sometimes to a level of being Adorably Stupid Little Puppies instead. Female Add fans also have an unsettling habit of being devoted to him on a nigh-worship level, ignoring his innumerable character flaws and making him out to be some kind of perfect person.

Lu: Ciel does not exist except to be a Mana Potion for Lu. Twice as invested due to almost literally having to pay twice as much for their character, unless they don’t dress up their Mana Potion at all. Regardless, they’re particularly abrasive and whiny.

Ciel mains pretty much do not exist.

Rose: Slaves to the mechanics to the game that are the easiest or the most efficient. No personality to speak of, nor willingness to learn or improve or even pretend the Z button exists. Always taking the shortest path or route. A tendency to cash extremely heavily, with many prominent Rose mains touting +11s, Oath, and the entire Henir Lord set for shooting problems with.

Not enough data yet on Ain to be completely sure. However, based on the radically different personalities of his job paths, I think it’s safe to assume that their mains’ personalities will also be quite different. Guesses based on the current paths and data/experiences available are:

Arme Thaumaturgy: Holier-than-thou and self-righteous. The hypocritical kind of player who will call you out as a coward for not running headfirst into the Fantasiegebilde Nest that they themselves are hiding in.

Erblühen Emotion: Personable, of the “wants to be friends with everyone” variety.

Apostasia: Gloomy. Nihilistic. Will keep to themselves, unless they trend towards engaging in pity parties instead.

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه، عن الرسول صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: “يَنْزِلُ ربُّنا تباركَ وتعالى كلَّ ليلةٍ إلى السماءِ الدنيا ، حينَ يَبْقَى ثُلُثُ الليلِ الآخرِ ، يقولُ : من يَدعوني فأَستجيبَ لهُ ، من يَسْأَلُنِي فأُعْطِيهُ ، من يَستغفرني فأَغْفِرَ لهُ .” صحيح البخاري

Cassandra and Cullen are actually incredibly similar

both in story arc and personality

  • super awkward when romanced
  • not good at diplomacy
  • used to hate mages when they were younger because of some kind of trauma (Cassandra’s brother being killed by blood mages, Cullen being tortured by demons)
  • face scar 
  • Cassandra’s skill tree is templar abilities, suggesting her seeker skills are very similar to cullen’s skills
  • both ended up in positions of authority in the inquisition
  • crushed on a mage and had it turn out tragically (regalyan, f!warden)
  • both very religious and speak formally
  • served under incredibly unreasonable and evil superiors (lord seeker lucius, meredith) and ultimately went against them
  • hot

in conclusion ?????
