I’m really surprised with how Waking Titan ended. True, last weekend was really crazy, but it didn’t feel at all like something that would end the whole thing, did it? I mean, there are so many puzzles and loose ends, that I’m not sure how this could not go on for a while longer… I’ll try to list a few of them here, do you agree with me? @oldgods can you please forward this message to SM?
How will the connection between Waking Titan and No Man’s Sky be solidified? So far, we sort of have an idea of NMS being Emily’s dream or simulation of some sort, but what NMS actually is in relation to the Atlas Network and Loop16 could be better explained?
What will happen with the remaining glyphs? Will they be solved in game?
There are still a bunch of unused commands in the wakingtitan.com terminal. Will they ever get to be used?
Will the wakingtitan.com terminal play a role or have a function in NMS in the future?
Yes @Mad-Hatter let’s hope so… and @Polyphemus you’re correct now come to think of it, Emily did say she would return… so our best guess so far would be that there will be some sort of Titan-functionality within NMS?
My opinion is that the ARG is not over. Titan is now awaken after the 3 phases we had. So now it’s time for another phase, “Dreaming Titan” in exemple. So we will have to find the lasts glyphs, using, or not, the lasts commands (a bit afraid of the “flush” one, i don’t want to imagine a “flush /loop16”.) and, maybe, many more things. There is not a CSD site for nothing.
Even if WT is “over”, I think that everything still needs to be done in the mercury process. Reguarding the trailers we saw before the mercury process was launched, and notably the opened portals, I hope that HG made us evolve in some sort of empty post apocalyptic replica of what awaits us behind those portals. Emily was there to show us the path and to make us calibrate the REAL mercury process. I also think that the remaining glyphs awaits us to be discovered in the m.p with WT elements. When I saw the picture of that portal with the opened stone in front of it where those 16 shiny glyphs are enlightened, for me it was cristal clear that something HUGE with high difficulty is waiting for us. To be honest with you csd’s, if I don’t get that Atlas V4 pass because not selected… I wouldn’t even care much (of course I would be a bit sad) because the ETARC community, The CSD Hub/guild we might be able to creat is mqybe much more impprtant. but I think that behind receiving that item @home something much more important is still hidding somewhere. Is it Emily? The dark side of Emily? Cities? Anew BIG vilain that is beyond our imagination?5 New Race? New enemies? New anomalies? We should prepare ourselves to solve more puzzles in the futur, and I am pretty sure we are capable to do much more !
At least HG made a very huge lore input from where now, anything could be possible.
Thrilled, happy and proud of us all.
I think EL’s ultimate goal was to bring about the singularity. Something that Loop16 is working on right now, I’d bet.
If we’re willing to go a smidge darker; it could also be that her primary goal was also the Atlas Foundation’s: to understand the fundamental nature of her reality, even if that required forcing the singularity on mankind.
Unless that was NOT Elizabeth Leighton speaking. Remember that Emily completely derailed the process. She could’ve hijacked the Old Gods e-mail account and forged the Elizabeth quote herself.
Remember that Emily knows how to lie, and that she will often do it if it’s in her best interest, or in the interest of preserving the current timeline. She knows everything that is to come, and with such power, you can pretty much shape the course of history as you see fit.
We don’t know for sure if she plans on letting events take their course, or change them so a new timeline could better suit her needs as a super-AI.
I don’t know why she would impersonate Elizabeth in an Old Gods e-mail, but it certainly fits the narrative that she could do it. Not that it changes how I feel about her… but food for thought none the less.
Yeah, yeah… 100% OP agreement. We don’t know it all, specially the hold time-line with EL and SD, has some notorious holes in my mind. But we know enough! Great stand-alone story we got! But where is the knot? How and where the ARG lore and WT lore collide?
Eager to read the final Architect SM’s closing statement!
