Strobe lighting and the scent of musty old books rises from within the fog...
suprimeking : (28 May 2017 - 03:35 PM) maybe they are ghost candles
midwinter : (28 May 2017 - 04:01 PM) let's just say mafuyu has a very busy afterlife
suprimeking : (28 May 2017 - 04:03 PM) lighting candles? i wonder what the work hours are
Rezz : (28 May 2017 - 04:07 PM) I mean, he is basically a housewife at this point
suprimeking : (28 May 2017 - 04:10 PM) i was under the impression being a ghost gave you the freedom to do whatever you please
midwinter : (28 May 2017 - 04:19 PM) what part of the fatal frame series gave you that idea
Rezz : (28 May 2017 - 04:21 PM) Most of the ghosts seem pretty badly chained to their previous lives and locations  :thinking:
suprimeking : (28 May 2017 - 04:23 PM) mid the part where the ghosts seem to wonder around
midwinter : (28 May 2017 - 04:24 PM) they wander around doing exactly what they were doing on the day they died
midwinter : (28 May 2017 - 04:26 PM) if they could do whatever they wanted, don't you think they'd mix it up a little
Rezz : (28 May 2017 - 04:29 PM) No, no, he said they wonder around, not wander. They wonder what their lives would be like if they weren't victims of circumstance, I'm sure.
suprimeking : (28 May 2017 - 04:51 PM) rezz that too
suprimeking : (28 May 2017 - 05:58 PM) is it wierd i can imagine kirie sending mafuyu down to the store for stuff
Eisenalex : (28 May 2017 - 08:59 PM) maybe that's just what all of them want to do, repeat what they did when they died. maybe dying and becoming a ghost makes you boring like that.
Eisenalex : (28 May 2017 - 09:00 PM) i don't know, I haven't died yet.
suprimeking : (28 May 2017 - 09:00 PM) god i hope not
suprimeking : (28 May 2017 - 09:01 PM) if i were like that as a ghost i'd want someone to kill me again
Eisenalex : (28 May 2017 - 09:03 PM) so you do ghosts a favour by exorcizing them with the camera obscura!
suprimeking : (28 May 2017 - 09:04 PM) for some of them i would say yes
suprimeking : (28 May 2017 - 09:06 PM) the ones in torment i'd say it's a sweet release

Logically speaking, I'm curious as to...

 

In the meme of "Who did this?" ... Who built it? This goes back way long ago so we really don't know yet, but if we consider the people in the village at *that* time to be the first, then it has to be one of them in the character list. And like, in logic, that's a really DEEP(est) pit.

 

http://bcl.rpen.us/z...e=Hellish_Abyss

 

"connecting the world of the living to the underworld. The Abyss is responsible for the earthquakes in the Minakami area. The villagers of Minakami took the earthquakes as a bad omen and a sign that the ground needed to be purified."

 

So the purposes for this place are:

 

1) Because Japan has earthquakes, the villagers think that it's bad and the ground need to be pure so that it wouldn't cause an earthquake? BUT doesn't that contradict what it says? "The Abyss is responsible for the earthquakes in the Minakami area." So this sounds like, what came first? The chicken or the egg thing.

 

2) "

Function Gateway to Hell/

"

But why? Because there's an evil spirit living in the ground that tries to attack the village? Who or what?

"A powerful taboo existed around the Hellish Abyss, such that people were forbidden from looking at it, listening to it or talking about it. Anyone who did look at it would be blinded."

Yeah maybe, because of this. Did they also make it their religion too? Because everyone has to keep doing it! @_@

And oh, well it also unleashed that creepy Darkness thing.

 

Whoever was it that established those traditions? It just couldn't be Ryokan because he was doing the duty as a Ceremony Master, but it could be possible that he was passed along the title from the previous people back then because he was a Remaining. See here: http://bcl.rpen.us/z...Ryokan_Kurosawa

 

So then nobody knows how it all began. It was just there, in its current time along with the details passed down as well.

 

More mysteries, and also, videogame logic. TwT

Well, so far, we can only speculate.
 
 
The abyss only causes earthquakes in the village, right? Moreover, darkness only took the village instead of trying to destroy Japan or the whole world. I think this means that the village was cursed long before the darkness. Only they could make the sacrifice as if to pay some sin that their ancestors committed. But how would that explain that Mayu's ritual was possible? Maybe Mio and Mayu were descended from someone who lived there. (Something similar between Yae and Miku.)
 
 
Thinking about it, would not it be possible for several villagers to evacuate when they saw that the ritual could fail by doing a ritual with only one twin? Of course, maybe they did not warn him that he had just captured Sae ... But still.
 
 
 
 
 
I hope I did not deviate too much from the subject. :)

I got the impression of the abyss as some kind of "spirit volcano" and that the eruption, which eventually took All Gods' Village and its inhabitants, was comparable to a (super)natural disaster.

Just like the movement of magma can cause earthquakes, the same could be the case with malevolent or tormented spirits that leak into the layers of earth of our world. Indigenous people mistaking a volcano for a mad god and using human sacrifice to calm it are a popular trope in adventure fiction (I have no knowledge of actual tribes doing that, so I'll leave it like that) and this could be some kind of reversal of that trope, in which the sacrifice actually works to calm down a semi-sentient "volcano".
