Recommended Posts

Once again, all credits for writing this down to @Lizizadolphin. And once again, a mysterious story is found in the audio logs. Here you go:

 

Call-of-Duty-WWII-Nazi-Zombies-The-Darkest-Shore-Trailer-1.jpg

"Red Riding Hood" (the corpse, not the head), possibly:

Quote

“Is this working? This is Red Riding Hood, trying to get another message to Ravencrown. Ravencrown, I have not heard from you since I shared our location with you. Shshshshsh, Gott im Himmel! I don’t know if I can get any more out to you. Straub grows suspicious, and is critical of my every move.” -Audio 23

 

Quote

“You must know: since our last correspondence, Straub has moved up the timetable. Our losses in the East have brought increased pressure from Himmler to begin Operation Sea Lion in a matter of days. I have to go. Please, send in your strike force. Soon.” -Audio 24

 

Quote

“Ravencrown, this is Red Riding Hood. Things have gotten moderately better here, due to an external distraction. Doktor Straub has lost a number of his Meuchlers… the undead soldiers he created as Assassins. They are… they are the most monstrous of Straub’s rotten children. The most intelligent.” -Audio 25

 

Quote

“His recent experiments with reviving dead brain matter resulted in a more conscious member of his untoten army.” -Audio 26

 

Quote

“I am not sure whether I should celebrate Straub’s distraction or not, however. You see, the Meuchlers-they have been escaping from storage. This should not be possible.” -Audio 27

 

Quote

“And Straub, well he is furious. Furious and… terrified. Because they keep escaping and then coming back. They do not speak much, but one word is clear. Repeated over and over again. ‘Mutter… Mutter’ It is how we say Mother.” -Audio 28

 

Quote

“Ravencrown, I still have not heard from you. Straub has tightened security on the island, he has taken MY U-Boat pens and turned them into his storage locker! My island has become a morgue!” -Audio 29

 

Quote

“He has removed my personal guard, has added monstrous locks to the doors, and now leaves his monsters to patrol the island. Does he not know the history of this island? It is blasphemy!” -Audio 30

 

Quote

“Even now he carries the head of Richter around on a stick… it is his personal key to areas of the island that I can no longer enter. This is… I cannot do this any longer. Please, send your people. Now.” -Audio 31

 

Quote

“This is Red Riding Hood, with a final message for Ravencrown. We have new orders, orders to abandon Operation Sea Lion. I overheard the message from Berlin. You must hurry! You must come-come now! It was from our Fuhror! He was begging for rescue!” -Audio 32

 

Quote

“I fear that I do not have much longer. Please send help, Ravencrown. You swore you would. Please, please!” -Audio 33

Nerthus_Statue_WWII.png

Quote

Nerthus was a goddess of fertility in Germanic paganism. She rules on Heligoland and travels veiled in cloth, astride a chariot drawn by sacred cattle. Her day of worship is performed by slaves who, upon performing their rites are immediately drowne - the Developer of WWII Nazi Zombies, on twitter 

Quote

They (Germanic tribes) are distinguished by a common worship of Nerthus, that is, Mother Earth, and believes that she intervenes in human affairs and rides through their peoples. There is a secret grove on an island in the Ocean, in which there is a consecrated chariot, draped with cloth, where the priest alone may touch. He perceives the presence of the goddess in the innermost shrine and with great reverence escorts her in her chariot, which is drawn by female cattle. There are days of rejoicing then and the countryside celebrates the festival, wherever she designs to visit and to accept hospitality. No one goes to war, no one takes up arms, all objects of iron are locked away, then and only then do they experience peace and quiet, only then do they prize them, until the goddess has had her fill of human society and the priest brings her back to her temple. Afterwards the chariot, the cloth, and, if one may believe it, the deity herself are washed in a hidden lake. The slaves who perform this office are immediately swallowed up in the same lake. Hence arises dread of the mysterious, and piety, which keeps them ignorant of what only those about to perish may see - Wikipedia

Why do the Meuchlers say "Mother"?

@anonymous Found an interesting Meuchler/Nerthus connection. Nerthus is a part of a cluster of goddesses who, depending on the region/belief system, were either all the same or closely related. Namely Nerthus, Frigga, Holda, Bertha, and Perchta were all goddesses of the earth and fertility. One of the functions of the goddess of the earth was to take-up the dead and watch over them. Specifically named are the souls of children who are unborn. What if the meuchlers are saying “mutter” because they are inhabited by the souls of unborn children who look to Nerthus as their mother. Bellow are quotes from two different sources about this theory.

 

Quote

History of Germany: From the Earliest Times, founded on Dr. David Müller’s “History of the German People”

 

"Besides these they worshiped a goddess of earth and heaven, before whom also their tempest hymn was sung. She was known by various names: as the dark earth that swallows the dead, she was called Lady Her-Holle; as the earth gleaming in a white winter garment, she was Lady Bertha. Tacitus calls her Nerthus; and places her abode in an island in the North Sea, where are her mysterious grove and lake, and her car, which at times bears peace and joy through the nations. A more human conception is that of the Spinner, the mother of the gods, who blesses home and hearth, and takes charge of children who die unborn."

 

Quote

Myths of the Northern Lands

 

"In other parts of Germany, Frigga, Holda, or Ostara is known by the name of Brechta, Bertha, or the White Lady. She is best known under this title in Thuringia, where she was supposed to dwell in a hollow mountain, keeping watch over the Heimchen, souls of unborn children, and of those who died unbaptized. Here Bertha watched over agriculture, caring for the plants, which her infant troop watered carefully, for each babe was supposed to carry a little jar for that express purpose."

These tales become more and more gruesome. Let's say the meuchlers are inhabited by the souls of unborn children, seeing Nerthus as their mother. Does that mean they obey Nerthus? And how do the souls get into the physical form of the meuchlers...aren't they actually corpses of prisoners/soldiers. That would mean that Geistkraft messes up the spirit and consciousness that inhabited those people, swapping them for those of "unborn children".
