  1. GG buddy, this thread just gained it's deserved Asylum approval! Its part of our shiny golden treassure collection now
  2. That is weird indeed. First, I think this one has nothing to do with 115: the same person just shouldn't be twice in the same universe. Someone's 'Aura' is generated magnetically by its electric neuron system, so it'd be weird if one could simply transfer it. However, we do see something similar at devices collecting Life Force like the Apothican Eggs and MPD canisters. So this possibility should remain in the picture: Perhaps with the right technology, the magnetic field just echoes through space to another object/subject. It is said that Primis (except Nikolai) is now soulless, but I wonder how it works with Ultimis Richthofen. His soul is the only one that couldn't be harvested from the Ultimis Universe. We got Maxis trapping him inside a zombie after Buried, but I am uncertain what 'that' is. Whether it is soul or life force, it seems powerful enough to jump from zombie body to zombie body. Zombies still have life force theirselves, so something different? I dont get that entire soul thing, and how people can just live without one.
  3. The One: Both songs have Elena and a melody that I like, both songs have alot of screaming that I disgress (but its Death Metal so I get it), so I'll go for the lyrics. And then the clear winner to me is the One. However, there arw very few songs that fit so well with the map's atmosphere as Coming Home. I am the Well: Just more my style Definately Lullaby of a Dead Man: Im going so good on this one and its in my personal top 3. Pareidolia: a lyrical masterpiece. Beauty of Annihilation: Better melody in my opinion. Abracadavre: As said in earlier bracket rounds, one of my favourite songs. If this one has to battle Always Running or Lullaby, it'd be a tough one for me. Won't back down: More my style and original. The Gift: New yet classic
  4. How would it work with the teleportation back, then? Why is the Griffin Station pad linked with a teleporter in Groom Lake 1963? The explanation might lay in the fact that, from my understanding, we teleport from a Linking Pad, rather than a real teleporter, something we never done before. In Der Riese, Kino and Der Eisendrache, we teleport from either MTD to MTD or MTD to Linking Pad. Now we do the reverze of the latter. Maybe it has something to do with the underlaying MPD? After all, it teleported Richthofen and might be a corrupted version of the Keeper's teleport devices. The most easy explanation is that upon return to Groom Lake, it is in 2025 too. Perhaps after the major outbreak the site was abandoned, thus the 1963 banner (this is right, right? I still am unsure if its true or Im just making up something) still being there in 2025. This explains why Groom Lake is on fire after sending the rockets from 2025 Moon to Earth. The Earth is scattered in pieces and the Magnetic Field goes wack, causing Temporal Rifts all over history. However, the timeline also states that the missles leave our planet "fractured and broken". I believe fractures are created by a butterfly effect in the past, e.g. killing Richthofen in dozens of universes, doing the corpses step in Buried ("we created a tear in space-time), etc. Maybe this is another explanation for a Groom Lake that appears in 1963 to be on fire. We got those Vril artifacts put into the rockets, possibly still linked with the MPD, which could be linked with 1963. When we did kaboom to Earth, multiple things happened: Since we had a 1963 where everything had to be allright (otherwise Ultimis could never got so far in e.g. CotD in 2011 and Classified in 1963), the original timeline maintains like this. Just normal We got a fracture where the rockets hit Earth in 1963, causing the odd tectonic shift resulting in supercontinent on Earth we see from the Moon, 2025. We got the rockets hitting Earth at the actual time we see in Moon, in 2025. Since this doesn't contradict with the past, this doesn't create a fracture and is an actual event happening in the original universe. I'm unsure how the link with 1963 and the Vril Spheres would work, but I imagine they must have some role in this fracturing of Earth. In DE, we need a hella lot of rockets to harm the Moon. In Moon, we need only three to not only destroy Earth, a planet way bigger than the Moon, but also make it fracture. Noclipping Moon during the Easter Egg shows us that the Vril Sphere is three-doublicated and put in every rocket. Three Spheres, three rockets, three possible outcomes of that universe? I'm probably looking at things that shouldn't be canon but hey, I like thinking about these things.
  5. Reading your upgraded timeline, I realized we got a paradox issue: We got Ultimis in nighttime Groom Lake at 1963, during Classified (BO4). After this, we first encounter them in dayline Groom Lake (BO1) where if I recall correctly a banner with the year 1963 or something can be seen, so this would fit with the idea that Ultimis is fighting the horde here until it gets daytime. Now, we got this: "October 13th, 2025 - MOON Using the Vril Device and the Focusing Stone, Richtofen completes his Grand Scheme and swaps bodies with Samantha on the Moon, giving him full control of the zombies and the Aether. " Moon is in 2025, so the only thing I can imagine is that either A. Bo1 Groom Lake is in 2025 too or B. the MTD between Groom Lake and Griffin Station timetravels 62 years in the future and past every time we use it. But then, when we blow Earth up, No Man's Land (1963) is on fire too while we shot the rockets at 2025 Earth. And as a last thing, this is how Earth looks like when seen from the Moon. Like the supercontinent Pangea 250 million years ago. We see this go in fire after the rockets blast as well. So what is all this? Did we cause the Permian extinction, the largest extinction ever, or something? In the Shangri La loading screan, which is at the same time ("meanwhile") as the Moon loading screen, we see an Eclipse. Perhaps, every time there is an Eclipse, timetravel is fucked or something? Right now too tired to think about all this.
  6. Fockin' neat! How would you feel about it if we could make an interactive manifestation of this thing on our site, complete with images and Victis-Ultimis-Primis-Richthofen teleportation links (like in the doc)? @Hells Warrrior Do you think the 'Egg Step' system or something could work?
  7. Reading this thread I'm pretty sure it has to be on the 5th, nice detective work Rad! @Mattzs I agree with you on the Broken Arrow part, but in Classified we have this radio: So Broken Arrow projects already existed, though not worked out or executed, waiting for the official approval of the American government. The "Five" outbreak was the last drop of water that made Broken Arrow to officially gain this approval, I think. This sentence holds more important things: An international alliance for defend Earth against Samantha. There are a number of oddities spread throughout zombie maps that could easily be explained by the idea of an international cooperation concerning zombies: A Soviet Lunar Lander in what appears to be West Germany, a Broken Arrow facility in China right next to what we presume to be the USSR's Global Polarization Device. And there is more: The appearance of Russian/Cyrillic words on items in Tranzit and Moon are well-known, or rather notorious. Could this too be explained with an 'International Cooperation'? We got the following: A word meaning infected or contaminated. A sentence meaning ‘Control-Dosimetry item “Child”. “Child” is also the name of a village located in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. The way this word is written between double quotation marks make it seem like it is a name of an item or operation or something. Dosimetry refers to the calculation of ionizing radiation, used for radiation protection in e.g. the aftermath of Chernobyl. A sentence meaning ‘through 500m’. Is there something laying 500 meter deep in the ground? I am unable to find if this can only be found on Moon, or Tranzit too. The initial possible explanation of these words was the idea that Hanford was a Russian Sleeper Cell location. In the Black Ops Campaign, we encounter a map of the USA where Drakovich has Nova-6 Sleeper Cells located: These are groups of sleeper agents who inconspicuously remain dormant in a community until activated, by a prearranged signal, to enable a chemical attack of the highly toxic Nova-6 gas. As seen on the map, a Sleeper Cell is also located in Washington State, possibly at the Hanford Campus. The Russian crates could carry Nova-6, ready to havoc the largest chemical attack in history. It might even explain the battle between the Black Ops and Spetsnaz in Nuketown. However, it wouldn’t explain the presence of the crates in Griffin Station, so I like the second theory more. The USSR and US are having a Cold War affair about the remnants of Group 935’s works, with the Space Race to Griffin Station as the jackpot. In 1963, however, the American government was concerned about an entity known as ‘Samantha’, the Child, a thread for the entire planet. The intro cutscene of the map “Five” shows some kind of attempt for reconciliation between Kennedy and Castro to discuss formal matters: Discussing the Samantha thread, and how to defend against her. I could see that after Castro seeing the undead with his own eyes, and surviving the outbreak, he surely would be willing to cooperate in the war against the German girl. More world leaders would follow, most notably those of the USSR. China’s ‘International Zombie Centre’, which is also marked on the Broken Arrow map in Camp Edward, could be proof for this. There is international cooperation in all matters concerning the Element, among which Hanford, Griffin Station, and even the Asian Time Paradox Site (Shangri La), where Russian crates can also be found. Maybe this organisation is even the CoD Zombie Labs. I'm sorry if I go too in-depth in this point :)

      It grows every time a soul is swallowed

  10. @NaBrZHunter Can't you teach the study Zombiology at my university or something? There is a genuine logic behind the fact that neurons being the messenger between a nervous system and Life Force, as they work electrical (the ratio potassium/sodium ions generates this). So yeah, when there is electriciy, there is a magnetic field: Our Aura or Chakra, like @Mattzs said. However, I am unsure about what Element 115 really does. If it is inhauled through the lungs, gas exchange happens via the pulmonary alveolus and involves the uptake of 115 in the blood first. Via blood, it could arrive and infect pretty much all body tissues. It can move through the Blood-Brain Barrier and infects the brain as well. However, I don't fully get how it can influence our Aura from there and makes the dead 'radio messengers' or 'electromagnetic marionnettes'. Concerning the soul, 'Life Force' can only exist if there is a magnetic field, ergo, if there is physical matter. Maxis' soul in Griffin Station and the Afterlife in Mob proves that a soul can exist without matter. I wonder, how does this work? Does the Life Force of a passed away person survive in an physical environment? Is it like some kind of scarf in the electromagnetic field? Matter contains energy, but that energy is maintained or converted after the matter is gone. I think Life Force can only exist when there is matter, but the soul somehow keeps existing

  12. Okay so thinking about the undead living actually makes sense. As I've said in prior comment, all matter contains vibrating particles, which generate an electric pulse which forms a magnetic field. In Buried Maxis even says that all matter contains energy. So its not important if it is a living or dead body. Hell, even a rock has an aura. Thing about a rock, or any object, is that it has no muscles to physically move. A dead body has, thats why zombies are able to exist. And rezurrecting this electromagnetic field, almost in a way like marionette dolls, also rezurrect this deceased's brain, and thus its soul. However, it is neurologically enslaved to the Controller, resulting in the lyrics of 'the One'. A zombie has an everlasting desire for human flesh (which is given by the Controller), though it wishes someone kills him to end his suffering.
  13. Hmm, so looking up 'mesmerism' @Mattzs , also known as Animal Magnetism, is about passing over an electromagnetical energy current via a person's Aura to the person itself, healing him/her. About Auras (a pseudosciencific explanation): Solid looking matter is made up of pure energy which is vibrating at a specific frequency which gives matter properties like shape, size, texture etc. These solid looking objects like a pen, book and even the molecules, atoms and cells in our bodies for that matter are actually made up of vibratory energy particles like electron, protons , neutrons and further more tiny particles. So when these particles vibrate in their nucleus, a small electrical impulse is generated in our body and according to the famous law of physics “When there is a electrical field around a body, a magnetic field gets developed automatically”. So the tiny electrical impulses in our body results into the formation of a magnetic field around our body which is actually know as the Aura- electromagnetic field of the body. The Aura is a person's electromagnetic field! Since everything in this universe is made up of the same constituent particles electron, protons, neutrons etc that means everything has an Aura. And if we keep on expanding these so called elementary particles we reach a point where we find nothing but pure energy vibrating at the very essence of these solid looking objects. Everything in this physical universe is nothing but energy which connects to everything in the universe. So yeah this, along with mesmerism, is definately interesting matter, as an Aura is actually by some believed to be our Life Force. And back to the original topic, this can be affected/manipulated by Earth's magnetic field and Leylines, so our total energy is part of a wider field. What I find odd though, is that the undead also still seem to have this Life Field, as the Aether occupant is able to control it and upon killing them, in cases like charging the MPD, the Apothican Eggs, the Origins Chests, etc, they still hold Life Force. So does an Aura and thus a soul remain in a body after dying? Anout the EMP, or Electromagnetic Pulse, this basically creates an explosion of electromagnetic noise that blocks radio waves and fries circuitry. So as long as the pulse is active, the controller cannot communicate, as the frequencies are all blocked by radio noise. When throwing an EMP near the magic box, the box closes. When throwing an EMP near a Perk-a-Cola machine, the machine will temporary not work. When throwing an EMP near a group of zombies, the light in the eyes of them will vanish and the zombies become passive. All because the EMP has temporary severed the connection between Aether/115 and the concerning object or subject. But this is also proof that zombies are revitalised by 115 due to its electromagnetic properties. Also, our buddy Nabrzhunter noted the similarity in response the mystery box has to the EMP. The EMP interrupts the signal from the MPD, locking the controller out of his Aethereal access to that area, so he can no longer 'insert' weapons or objects into that time via the portal known as the mystery box due to that disconnect. Note that the box is still there, the same way the guns you have previously purchased are still there because they have already been completely manifested and are now physical and out of the reach of the controller. However, the guns remain guns and the box remains nothing but a box. I believe Black Ops II entirely revolved around this subject, wheras Victis had to activate so-called Global Polarization Devices. Polarization in electromagnetism refers to the way how the electrical fieldvector vibrates, though my knowledge lacks any more understanding of that subject. The most important thing is that once the Towers are activated, it seems like either Richthofen or Maxis controls the planets magnetic field or something, enabling them to either 'mend the Rift', or using its energy. @RadZakpak Good reminder about Maxis contacting survivors only through electric devices. It could be very possible that he uses the MPD as some kind of broadcast antenna or something, but that leaves the question: Why can't Richthofen do this? He only seems to be able to communicate via 115. Concerning Corvus, that what you said pretty much convinced me that it is tied with Broken Arrow and the main story. It could taking place in another fracture or something, or the universe it takes place in itself is a creation of Broken Arrow. It is multiple times mentioned that the organization is about 'opening new worlds'. Could the 'Corvus Universe' be some kind of Test World created by Broken Arrow, where they did experiments revolving AI, transfer of consiousness and Nova-6? Seems a bit far off but it is interesting enough for me to look into that matter later. Good point!
  14. Youre not the goof, Im the goof. The answer on his question is indeed yes, entschuldigung. Just me going too deep again. Side note: Do zombies appear in the BO4 campaign? I have never played BO4 and didn't even knew it had a campaign. In what vontext do they appear?
  15. @Mattzs Im coming back on your notes once I got on my PC
  16. He means how much interwoven the stories of the two modes are. Black Ops I had this very clear, as JFK, Nova-6, the Ascension Group etc appeared in both, and the events of the zombie story were based on real-life and campaign events. "Five" is pretty much the manifestation of this. However, around this time Richthofen & his crew travelled through time for the first time, triggering Temporal Rifts throughout history and future. As soon as they appeared in 1963, things changed (possibly led to the Butterfly Effect) and fractures were created. So right now, it is hard to say. I mean, in Gorod Krovi we got Reznov infiltrating Group 935 and stealing schematics of the Giant Metal Men, while in the original, unharmed universe, he fought in a 'normal' WW2, ending up in Vorkuta where he eventually disappeared.
  17. Mattzs, glad to see you again mate! And it appears that you have the same wonderful theoretically insight in the story as back then. As for electricity, I have hardly any knowledge and experience concerning that field of physics, but I beloeve we do know the 115th element has highly electromagnetic properties. These are those properties which govern the rate at which a material will respond to absorption or emission of electromagnetic radiations. Examples of electromagnetic radiations with which we might be familiar are radio waves, micro waves, ultraviolet rays, infrared rays and visible light rays, which perfectly fits with the stuff I said about 'Life Force' being electromagnetic in origin. The brain and nervous system of a zombie being infected with 115 might absorb more radiation or something. The 115 forms the bridge with the Aether. With the Avogadro, it almost seems like they 'took away' the physical form, leaving the Aether-connected nervous system over or something. But yeah, you're spot on electromagnetism, galvanism, Earths magnetic field and Life Force can very well be connected. Its not without a reason that we constant encounter great sciencific minds in the electricity like Tesla, Faraday and Avogadro. Your note of galvanism reminds me of the galvaknuckles. It seems like, along with the Electro-traps, a high voltage of electricity is able of kill a zombie somehow... EDIT: Connecting Broken Arrow with the creation of Corvus would require an entire theory/thread. I like that thought
  18. What is also not uninterested is that @PINNAZ recently mentioned that Die Glocke was believed to broadcast ELF (extreme low frequency) waves as well, causing the bees to disappear from the Ludwigsdorf area. Now in The Giant, Maxis says that we must activate the beacon (the Fly Trap)...
  19. Hey all! So today I wanted to share a thread about a subject quite some members here (notably @caljitsu , @The Meh and @NaBrZHunter) inspired me after reading their topics and discussions here on the Forums or our CoDZ Discord, so all props to them please! Without any doubt, I have excluded some major information and story/gameplay references, but I wanted to have this thread posted this evening, to give y'all some interesting brainfood. Ah well, it's already almost 1AM here but the UK and Americas might still be awake (You can read it with spleenbreakfast, @Lenne, my dear). Enjoy, and don't forget to share your own thoughts! I'll start with Leylines. Anyone knows what that are? (Sees a few raised hands) Okay so, Ley lines are believed to be a series of metaphysical connections that link a number of sites, such as Stonehenge, the Pyramids of Giza and Macchu Picchu around the world. Essentially, these lines form a sort of grid or matrix and are composed of focussed spots of the earth's natural energies. It could be called the Earth’s magnetical veins, nexuses of energy. These lines appear in most cultures and traditions, spread across the globe, and usually the names given to represent these invisible lines are translated to an equivalent of 'spirit', 'dream', or 'energy' paths. Most of these locations happen to be on mountains, man-made mounds, stone circles, pyramids or beacons. Some believe these lines are the flow of Earth’s magnetic field. For example, practitioners of the Chinese art of Feng-shui, try to determine the flow of 'lung-mei', or 'Dragon currents'. The main paths of the forces were believed to be determined by the routes of the sun, moon and five major planets. We know that the Earth is encompassed within a magnetic field. The strength and direction of the magnetic currents vary according to the position of the sun, moon and closer planets. The magnetic field is also affected. You could imagine that when the Earth was blown into bits, the magnetic field and leylines were altered and the force decreased. This heavily severed the Aether’s, and thus Richthofen’s connection with Earth, limiting his power. Now some time ago, @RequixEclipse shared a discovery by several global space-organizations of ‘hidden portals in Earth’s magnetic field’. Observations by NASA's THEMIS spacecraft and ESA’s Cluster probes suggest that these magnetic portals open and close dozens of times each day. They're typically located a few tens of thousands of kilometers from Earth where the geomagnetic field meets the onrushing solar wind. Most portals are small and short-lived; others are yawning, vast, and sustained. Tons of energetic particles can flow through the openings, heating Earth's upper atmosphere, sparking geomagnetic storms, and igniting bright polar auroras. From my understanding of this, it appears that Earth’s magnetic field is capable of generating portals. Back to the leylines, the energy nexuses of the magnetic field. Mythologies say that the Vril-Ya used rods harnessing and conduiting this energy, they called ‘Vril’. As I explained this in a prior thread concerning the Weapons of the Ancients, a Vril staff is an object in the shape of a wand or a staff which is used as a channel for Vril. The narrator of the book The Coming Race describes it as hollow with "stops", "keys", or "springs" in which Vril can be altered, modified, or directed to either destroy or heal. The staff is about the size of a walking stick but can be lengthened or shortened according to the user's preferences. We have actually seen such staff in Call of the Dead, Moon and Der Eisendrache (most likely all being the same one). We also see so-called ‘Amplyfiers’ in the map Buried, which amplify and project the energy. Blood of the Dead for the first time confirmed the existence of laylines in the zombies canon, in which it is revealed that Alcatraz is located at such nexus. This could explain why the Native Americans mentioned evil spirits they purportedly encountered on the Rock long before it became a federal prison. You see, bones and artifacts unearthed by archaeologists on the island have indicated that it might have served as a burial ground for Native Americans, and for some mysterious reason there are burial mounds and monuments made at a lot of leyline locations. It is believed that these locations, and the rituals around them, are ‘Death Roads’ or ‘Spirit Paths’, places where the spirits of the deceased can move away to find peace. In Buried, Richthofen says that departed souls leave residual energy in their wake, and now you might see where I am getting at. Is ‘Life Force’ electromagnetic in origin too? Let’s talk about the Schumann Resonance first, a set of spectrum peaks in the extremely low frequency portion of the Earth’s magnetic field. Pretty much the frequency generated of our ionosphere over the planet’s surface, the rhythm of Earth. Every second, pulses travel around the world in the resonant chamber between the Earth and the ionosphere, the area we live in, sending colluding signals to all microorganisms. These signals couple us to the Earth's magnetic field. Concerning our brain: Our grey thinking masses consist of billions of neurons, and each individual neuron connects to thousands of others. Communication happens between them through small electrical currents that travel along the neurons and throughout enormous networks of brain circuits. When all these neurons are activated they produce electrical pulses. This synchronized electrical activity results in a brainwave, our brain’s frequency. Now it is theorized that the Earth’s magnetic field, through the Schumann Resonance, affects our brainfrequency, and thus: Our minds (and this has actually some science backing this idea). It is by some even believed that this is the driving force behind evolution of living organisms. Conspiracy theorists believe secret projects such as the H.A.A.R.P. and MKUltra revolve around this. Mindcontrol through the Earth’s energy and frequency. In Alpha Omega, it is revealed that the APD (and thus, the MPD as well, I guess) can influence the brain of a subject: Motor and cognitive functions, the pain center, memories and emotions. So does an Aether Pyramid Device enslave the neurons and synapses through manipulating the frequency? In what way could Life Force be involved in this? Is it a cerebral pulse that sparks us alive, and maintains us so? If a brain works 'electric', does it release energy once it stops working and dies? The human body is comprised of matter and energy. Remarkably, at any given moment, roughly 20 watts of energy course through your body. Now, as Maxis says in Buried, energy in a closed system cannot be destroyed, only passed on. The universe as a whole is closed. However, human bodies (and other ecosystems) are not closed, they’re open systems. We exchange energy with our surroundings. In death, the collection of atoms of which you are composed are repurposed. Those atoms and that energy, which originated during the Big Bang, will always be around. Therefore, your “light,” that is, the essence of your energy, your Life Force, will continue to echo throughout space until the end of time. Is our energy connected with the Leylines, our planets magnetic field and the Aether?
  20. Arbzorark, the Summoning Key. Your hint is appreciated, Meh!
  21. I would say this is relative, as indeed a lot of (Western) religions/cultures believe Heaven is above and Hell/the Underworld is beneath us, while a lot of another (for us exotic) religions and cultures speak about some kind of Heaven beneath, think of the Old Greeks, the Mesoamerican societies. In general, the term Agartha even seems to refer to Hollow Earth, beneath us. 'Aether', however, points up to the sky, the air. I too believe Earth's core, along with some concentrated 115 deposits (like Excavation Site 64 and Shangri La), are focussed spots of ethereal energy and could serve as gateways to the Aether. It is believed that Agartha is the physical manifestation of the Aether, a 3D dimension that we actually can percept. However, in more recent findings it is revealed that the Aether corrupts everything it touches, which begs the question: What is Agarhta exactly?
  22. Disclaimer, the following is all a theory merely based on in-game events, observations and quotes. While I speak about it like it happened, it is, of course, all just a personal assumption. Introduction The Apothicans, the ultimate Evil we are fighting our entire zombie-slaying lives. Though they were directly encountered for the first time in Black Ops 3, they appear to have been lurking in the shadows all the time. They are the masterminds that have caused our story to happen; the ones that had crafted the Moon Pyramid, the ones that drove Richthofen and so many others mad. Even the true reason Element 115 exists in our reality. However, their sudden appearance in Shadows of Evil and the lack of a mythology-based background didn't made them that beloved in the general public. So I decided to devote an extensive thread about my personal research to the history, known powers and purpose of the Apothicans. Concerning Apothicans... History & Science Our own history is not what we think it is, at least not in the Zombieverse. Before the era of human agriculture we don't know anything of our true origins. There is a huge gap of knowledge of where we came from. Maybe that is because of the Illuminati doesn't want us to know (coming back on this later). Or maybe it is because the truth is simply too inconvenient. In the Vril-Ya mythos, there was a solar system named Aldebaran that had a sun revolving around two inhabited planets, forming the empire “Sumeran”. Living on these inhabitable planets there was living a race highly technological advanced, also capable of travelling through space and time. However, they left their planets and via Mars, they arrived at Earth, in the time of early humanoids. Here, due to ideologic conflicts they split up into two different factions, one migrating to the Gobi Desert, the other to Hyperborea. Though tectonic shifts have occured ever since, so the exact locations remain vague, the main point is that the extraterrestials were divided into two groups now. Eventually, this division will lead to a Great War. Using their Vimañas and Vril Rods, this event resulted in a major extinction of flora and fauna. This perfectly fits with the Tale of Atlantis, in which the two groups are known under the names Atlantis and Lemuria, Nan Madol (Zetsubou) by some believed to be the remnant of the latter. The civilizations were by far the most psychical and technological developed ones existing, and they too ended up using their advanced thermonuclear weapons against each other. Thus...the well-known fate of the Lost Continents: A giant flood, also mentioned in Scandinavian Ragnarok and Christian Bible. In the aftermath of the apocalyptic events, the citizens of the Lost Continents search refuge subterrean and create Agartha. These ancient stories describe the Great War, the War between the two ideologies of a highly advanced race, which Doctor Monty refers to as 'the Keepers'. They have placed Pyramid Devices throughout different realms, to be able to teleport between them via the Aether. The Aether is a dimension beyond our perception, pretty much a cosmologic energy field. According to Einstein's law, mass can be converted to energy and vice versa: In the Aether your atoms are at the absolute zero point of mass and you are merely part of the infinite energy field. Faust compared this with graphing an algebratic equation, if an object is squared, you form a parabola. On both side of your y-axis you will see that the two numbers are exactly the same on the y even though the two x are opposite. Eventually the two converge and you chart will hit absolute zero, then begin to reconsitute itself on the other side of the y-axis. Let's say that your graph is you atom. Now, your atoms as they pass though space-time teleporting to another location, will gradually loose mass before hitting that absolute zero. Now, there is no absolute zero mass in our reality. Instead, you will poke a tiny hole in space time as it warps around you to form a zero point where your mass, your physical self, long exist. You are a beam of energy, an ethereal form, existing in an infinite singularity. This is the Aether, the Netherworld or borderrealm we use as a slingshot dimension to reach another location within our universe. Nothing exists but yourself and the other beings trapped there. Aether can be used as a force, a gateway....and a prison. The infinite, worst possible prison. After the Great War, the winning split send the other to this place, beneath creation. Using the Aether's energy, they created the Agarthan plane, a dimension accessible via Earth's Core. Meanwhile, throughout history, the winners have visited multiple early human cultures, Mesoamerican, Central-Asian, African and European, teaching mankind about things such as agriculture, and they were received as Gods. They also founded an Ancient Order, to secure the Apothicans and maintain the order in the Multiverse. This Order included besides 'them' also humans all over the world. These 'Keepers', as they would be called, guarded Earth against Apothican influences. Comsuming Worlds The Old Norse Mythology already predicted it: They called it Ragnarok, the set of future events where the gods will battle against the jotuns, or world-devourers. The gods are described as “the benefactors and protectors of civilization,” while the world-devourers “are forces of destruction, entropy, and decay,” as they are “constantly trying to drag it back to primordial chaos". Doctor Monty speaks about the Apothicans that "consuming is just their thing". I think there is, however, a explanation for this violent behaviour. Remember the stuff I said about energy and matter? Matter always contains energy, as it can be transferred into it. E=mc2. Upon consuming an universe, I can imagine it 'feeds' the Apothican prisoners a hella lot of energy. According to the Big Bang theory, all energy was first wrapped together, exploding into matter and giving birth to the universe. What the Apothicans do is kinda the reversed of this process. While I do not know their exact purpose for this process, I guess it has something to do with breaking free and returning to Agartha. Generating Rifts The most fundamental thing in Shadows of Evil is that already after the Pack-a-Punch process, the Apothicans start consuming this realm. The entrance for the World Devourer, the giant squid-like creature, was opened upon breaking the Apothican Rift Stone, the PaP. This was done by placing four Gateworms on pedals surrounding the Stone. I was thinking, could the Gateworms be the larvae stadium of the giant worms seeing shooting Element 115 through portals? After all, in Shadows they appear capable of generating portals. (I know I might go a bit fast through the stuff, but...) Cal recently linked the events of Call of the Dead with Shadows of Evil: In Shadows, we need to sacrifice a human soul to make the Apothicans able teleport the Gateworm. In CotD, we sacrifice a human to receive a Vril Rod. See the connection? Morg City One of the biggest mysteries about Shadows of Evil remains in what kind dimension this occurs. In the intro, it seems like the Shadows crew initially lives in a normal Dimension 63, and then they wake up in this twisted realm where only the Cursed survive, almost comparable to Mob of the Dead's events. It should be noted that in both Mob and Shadows, Element 115 is present in a certain amount. In Shadows, we have the 115 meteor shower causing strange fungus to grow and people to turn sick, while in Mob, it are secret experiments involving 115 going on. So both places are infected, and then they 'turn' into this pseudo-pocket dimension. From Blood of the Dead, we learn that when the Warden exercised Apothican rituals, he created the trap. Is that also the cause in Shadows? We do see ritual things scattered all across the map. And in this universe, only the sinners remain human. Some other important issues: What I do find interesting is that the Shadowman & his Apothican armies are physically present in the map. If they can simply travel to Morg City, why cannot they escape the Aether? And why would they initially need the Apothican Rift Stone to be activated to enter and consume the universe? Another mystery is the fact the Shadowman, upon defeat, is turned in a giant Gateworm, causing the Apothican shocktroopers to change their yellow eye-colour into purple (though the zombies keep the yellow eyes). To me, it feels like if we fully understand the events of Shadows of Evil, we'll understand the Apothicans. How do you feel about it? Are the Apothicans the True Evil? Share your thoughts, please!
  23. Richthofen: "Finally, I am in control! The aether is mine to manipulate as I wish. The world is now my own personal plaything! A-HA HA!" Maxis "What have you done?!" Richthofen: "I've won, Maxis! That's what I've done!" Maxis: "But what about Samantha? Your actions condemn my daughter's very soul to eternal damnation! Even if you do not care for her, surely you wish to return to your own body?" Richthofen: "Not really, no. And I already possess the power to leave this netherworld, and re-enter the physical realm once more. I can choose anybody I wish! Ahahaha! As for you, Maxis, you will simply cease to be! Auf wiedersehen, toodles! Hahahaha!" So it appears Richthofen's actions lead to Samanatha's damnation, and the way Maxis tries to talk Richthofen into getting his own body back, I think it has to do with Samantha's soul still inhabiting Richthofen's physical body. When Maxis is in control, Sam's soul is taken out of Richthofen's body prior to Ultimis teleporting to Groom Lake, 1963, leaving it comatose/braindead. If Richthofen would gain control, would Sam eventually teleport to Groom Lake too? Or did these events not even occur? Its interesting that by the time of Buried, Ultimis + Sam would have either died or travelled away from Griffin Station. And yet Samantha would be doomed. Why? I do not know, but perhaps it merely refers to Maxis inability to 'travel back in time' (as far as you can call it like that in the Aether) to Moon and rescue his daughter, as he can only do that when he is in control.
  24. First of all, great analysis! Brains! Probably irrelevant, but that first part seems to refer to Richthofen, as well to Yuri. I always found it striking how the stories of Yuri and Edward, though the latter had a much more tragical history, had a certain similarity in it: The talents of both not seen by their overseer, this frustration causing trouble, ending up with teleporting the overseer away. Samantha might have had the irony to let Yuri do the same as Edward did to her father (and her). This song definately refers to Richthofen, yet nontheless I just wanted to say that. Spot on about the 'Trust Barrier'! But didn't the CotD radio refer to that of the undead army? Your comparision of the song's title with BotD's ending gave me goosebumbs. "The writings on the wall". From this sentence it seems like it are messages of Samantha. In that case, she might see the futuristic apocalyptic events this story leads to. Probably off+topic, but how does 'one person at a time controls the world' fit with fractures? As far as I always assumed, the MPD hold absolute control over one universe, but the fact the Apothicans hid it only in the Original Universe would make me think it might have control over everything. The device is and remains odd, and I'm now too tired to break my head about it. Guten nacht! (Oh and by the way, I feel like Zombies Labs isn't the right category for this thread. Is it okay if I move it to R&D, or Story Discussion perhas?)
