Hey about that book 'The up children down' who do you think wrote it did the elsens write it or the guardian's? If the elsens wrote it then why was the font so weird did they try to conceal it are there other types of elsens? Like authors or doctors or guards? And if the guardians did then who did cause japhet cannot write case he doesn't have hands although he could use magic? And enoch doesnt seem like he would neither dedan And did Hugo make it up?
I don’t know? Just because it’s in the zones, however, doesn’t mean that someone from the zones wrote it. Consider the old book with the unreadable title that Dedan gave to Hugo, and “written by E.S.”, which I’ve heard is based from a real-life book.
I’m not sure there’s literally other kinds of Elsen… they all work hard to gain places in history, and maybe writing an important enough book or whatever could do that for them.
Who knows where it came from? Think about how the story of Japhet’s spiral into madness appeared on the shelves in real time as it was happening. The same thing could be said for The Up Children Down. OFF acknowledges the fact that it’s a game, after all. Weird things can happen just because they’re a part of the story and gameplay.
Maybe it was written as a prophecy before the events that caused those in OFF, or maybe it was written after most of those events (the apocalypse?) had already transpired.
Any of these, or perhaps something else, could be the case.
