Continuing from thread one >>17885111

You decide to speak with Picus now, and leave Sarma behind.

Picus sees you approach.

"I approve of your afterlife, it gives so much more meaning to the choices one makes in life. I also like your necromancy, if just for the flavor."

"Thank." You say, "So I noticed you basically did the exact opposite of Ius in nearly every round, any particular reason?

"Ius is interested in how mortals develop 'positive' morality. This is the goal of many gods like him. The see morality... as a barrel. They want to watch mortals climb the walls of that barrel so that they can learn, through the mortals, what it is exactly that lies outside of it. Us gods may be all knowing, but our omniscience prevents us from understanding the true nature of such aspects of mortal sapience. I, however, am interested in watching them creep downwards. As our goals are opposite you can see how our actions would, naturally, be opposite as well."

You are interested, then, in the potential that our creations possess? I too, am fascinated by what they may be capable of accomplishing.

But conflict without purpose is meaningless. Surely there must be a way to instead use that conflict as a means to an end.

Perhaps we can agree to a mutually beneficial course of action. It is my intention to preserve the balance of this world, to prevent the concentration of power from becoming lopsided, such that it utterly destroys the creation, making all our work for naught. And yet, I am intrigued by what our creations might accomplish, if left unchecked.

If there is conflict, let it be for the purpose of driving our mortal creations to reach ever higher, to reach up for the heavens, the stars and the infinite cosmos. Let them strive to become like us, as they are wont to do.

And if they should prove themselves worthy, and succeed, that should make for quite the apotheosis, would it not?

"Apotheosi" You say.

"Apotheosi? As in Apotheosis? The ascention from mortality to godhood?"

"The conjugation would change the meaning to 'that which causes ascent to godhood'. I have talked to the others. You wan't see see mortals ascend morality upwards. Picus wants to see them ascend it as well, just differently. Sarma want to create a world that ascends beings from just that, beings, into infinite and unreplicable works of art. And Formless wants it in the most literal sense, because it is epic. Even I want to see the mortals ascend, in their knowledge and in their understanding. So it is a fitting name.

Our world is that which brings the ascent, Apotheosi."

Reminds me of a novel I read once that was basically a romanticized Hell, in which a Fallen Angel finally redeems himself enough to ascend back. It was actually well written, and I liked how many of the Fallen Angels are merely absent of morality, though those that rule are very, very evil. But back to the point at hand, the thing that made it interesting is that when souls were sent to Hell, they were sent as energy. They automatically manifested around them the image and matter of their original forms, but those who ruled in Hell could make use of their energy however they wished. Absent all other forms of resources, human souls were therefore used for everything, including the bricks a city was made of.

It would also add knowledge and insight to ourselves. We're not almighty, all-knowing. Beings in this world can learn, and with that ability, coupled with the inspirations we and others give them, they can reach heights of knowledge beyond even us, potentially.

After the horrors of the Dropsite Massacre, the Raven Guard are trying to survive in the caves and mountains of Isstvan V. Their plight is desperate, and escape from the roaming Chaos Legions seems impossible. Meanwhile Colonel Valerius of the Imperial army begins suffering terrible dreams, believing the Raven Guard to be in trouble. But he faces obstacles of his own in attempting what he believes will be a heroic rescue. Can the decimated Legion hold out against the forces of the World Eaters long enough to reach an unlikely salvation?

But would it be possible for you to call back a soul that has no desire to go back?

If someone is admitted into the Library of Babel, they would have desired, in life, Knowledge above any other motivation. They'd have no intention to return to the realm of the living.

Perhaps Necromancy for those who've ascended to the Library is less a summons and more a petition. Instead of disappearing into Nirvana or being the next Buddha, they all rise to the Library. Necromancers bid for their aid and if they choose to do so the spirits will come down and teach mortals.

An interesting notion. Just as Arcane magic calls upon the elements, Druidic upon nature, Sorcerous upon demons, and Divine upon the gods, so does Necromancy follow much the same guidelines. It is less of a forcible bending of said medium to your will, and more of a friendly petition to higher powers.

This could also allow for "White" and "Black" variants of each magical discipline, a split between those who see magic as nothing more than a means to power and those who respect the source of said magic.

Of course, if a soul was forcibly ripped from the afterlife, it would be quite unwilling to talk about anything it might have learned there, wouldn't it? In any case, I propose that the nature of the Knowledge granted to those who enter the Library of Babel is such that it causes them to realize why our plan, which involves hiding a great deal of the Knowledge within, is for the best. Thus, regardless of whether they are summoned forcibly or willingly, they will do their best not to spill the beans too much. Only what is necessary and relevant to the task at hand.

In any case, it'll at least be interesting to see Necromancy depicted in a much mroe positive light than the norm.

Send them back. With every new life a soul has, they gain new experiences, new knowledge, and new chances.

Basically, where reincarnation in real world religions is a way to perfect yourself so you can abandon reality? Reincarnation here is because reality is awesome and everyone who wants another spin of the wheel should be able to get one.

Places of mystery where the rules work differently, or not at all. No matter how much those in our world learn, there will always be things of wonder.

Also, the chance that anything in the world, given enough time or the right opportunity, can become sapient. Because all things strive, and should have that rewarded.

Finally, we spread the gift of life across the stars, that a million million different paths might have the chance to flourish.
