Actually by replaying through lh2 and 3 as a good lucina, still a vamp and managed to get to heaven with an 86% good rating. So Vampires can get into heaven.


#4646

aww no way!! I had no idea you could do that!


#4647

So lucid, what were your biggest influences when making the lost heir, and how many Jojo references are hidden within?


#4648

Just as the MC arrived at the floating castle to confront Zusak, they learnt a dark secret…

"You were expecting Zusak…BUT IT WAS ME, DIO! "


#4649

Just be thankful Zusak never got hold of the ability to freeze time by summoning a demon called Za Warudo.

Or Jess learning Hamon.

Or Theo pounding a demon with his fists whilst yelling ‘‘Ora Ora Ora!’’


#4650

Zusak with 100% Unarmed:

“MUDA MUDA MUDA MUDA MUDA MUDA MUDA”


#4651

:rofl:

Picturing a skinny old dandy man pummeling the MC.

Zusak does share Dio’s god complex, his plans to merge the demon realm into the physical world can even be compared to how Dio wanted to achieve ‘Heaven’ in Stone Ocean.

It would be hilarious if there was a wisecrack moment between the MC and Zusak where the latter is going on a triumphant monologue when the MC suddenly interjects with a ‘‘What you’ll say next is…’’ Joseph Joestar style.


#4652

Just as The MC is just about to kill Zusak they look him in the eyes and hear him say, “Third bomb… bites the dust”


#4653

Blasting away time and perpetuating an endless time loop than ensures Zusak can never be defeated, creating branching timelines where the MC tried different ways to thwart him.

I can’t decide if I like the Hero ending the most of the Martyr ending, both are quite appealing, although the latter is a little more poetic.

But the former was definitely the most fleshed out since it comes with an epilogue regarding the further fates of secondary characters.

The Villain ending on the other hand… I suppose it has its fans and although the MC and Zusak can be seen as parallels to each other, the two never really developed a relationship outside of the MC wanting answers and Zusak regarding them as a thorn to his side.

One could argue that learning about Lachlan gave the MC some greater understanding of Zusak’s motives and drove the parallel between the two ever further (both are driven to change Daria or even the world due to the death of family) but the MC’s conscious choice not to overthrow Zusak and take his place as the Villain and instead decide to join him which Zusak seemingly accepts just seems… I don’t know, the MC is joining the man that killed their parents and usurped their birthright.

Unlike in the Hero ending we don’t get an epilogue detailing what happened to the secondary characters, it can be assumed they either perished or its possible the MC spared them, perhaps even setting up their infant child to one day grow up to slay both them and Zusak.


#4654

I think it would be cool to have a prequel to Life of a Wizard, where you play as the grand parent that your parents tell you about in the beginning.


#4655

If that’s the case, how come my Martyr Vampire Rock Star Bard ended up in Heaven with his parents and foster parents in the Martyr ending?


#4656

Obviously, the Good Gods love rock and roll.


#4657

Dayum. Lemme go get my lute twice enchanted and thrice blessed then. This’ll be the biggest concert in the afterlife, might even invite some folks from Hell.


#4658

Because once a vampire is dead, they’re no longer a vampire and therefore no longer damned.


#4659

It seems strange, saying “once a vampire is dead”. A vampire is already dead, right? So shouldn’t the term be “destroy”?


#4660

If vampires are no longer damned once they’re destroyed, in what meaningful sense were they ever damned to begin with?


#4661

My guess is that through all the good the MC has done, they managed to redeem themselves in the eyes of the good gods (Devito and Pesci) and they cleansed the MC’s soul as a result.


#4662

None. Unless you count undeath as a kind of hell in itself. Which you can; Vampire Lords are cut off from the gods of light regardless of their alignment, after all.

However, the Martyr ending does seem to confirm that final judgment only occurs at the cessation of your corporeal existence, and it also mentions that vampire lords still have souls. So honestly, the interpretation that best fits all available data is that the idea that a vampire is not truly damned by virtue of being a vampire; the section that says you are so damned is your limited knowledge as a mortal talking. Just like anyone, a vampire can buy some indulgences and wash their soul clean.


#4663

Hi! Would it be possible to be admitted to the almighty guide? I’m sick and tired of this damn Puppet ending. :stuck_out_tongue:


#4664

The guide is open to all, but it only covers books 1 and 2.
