The lore doc has been updated, now including the lore of Chaos and Creation, as well as more lore on Spirit Energy.
I have a theory about how it works for the Gods, and possibly MC, and I think its best for me to make a seperate post about this subject rather than cranking out another essay on some thread.
So Spirit Energy comes from Creation and Magic Energy comes from Chaos. The two had chil- wait wait, let me skip that one.
Spirit Energy is basically the force of life itself, and that humans cant really manipulate this energy, only Gods can. Makes sense, humans didnt start making magic before, it had to be given to them. They were never given the ability to manipulate Spirit Energy.
We know Vitality builds will use your health to attack, pretty much using your soul, your own spirit energy. But I think thats just the tip of the iceberg. We’re using our lifeforce, whats to say we cant use whats around us?
Creation is the force that creates planets and life itself. Meaning that everywhere we look, even in this magic-polluted world, there’s Spirit Energy in literally every single thing.
In the sea, in the sky, the animals, plants.
Remember how each of the Gods have a domain they ruled over? For example, Poseidon with Water, Hades has the Earth, Zeus had the Sky.
And here’s a little thing Tech revealed back in 2020 about the New Greek (descendants of the gods)
So basically, descendants of the Gods can manipulate certain elements without magic. If its not magic… then it might be spirit energy itself.
I know this is 2020 stuff, but I think it might still apply cause the concept of Creation existed since 2019. At the very least, I think the addition of Spirit Energy may have added an explanation to this thing about Legacies.
The manipulation of Spirit Energy isnt just about manipulating your own spirit energy to attack, I think it also involves manipulating life itself. Manipulating the elements itself.
This is why the gods are allocated specific domains in which they are connected to, its the specific domain of nature, of life that they can manipulate and control.
(Maybe thats how Grand Curses are made? Basically turning a part of their Spirit energy powers into a pure form of Magic…? Is that what Aurem does, converts one to another?)
Since AO MC is most likely a descendant, they have access to this too. I dont think we’ll be able to use this in gameplay, and will only stick to using our Spirit Energy on our own (too gimmicky, too OP, its like using a Curse). But will there be key loments where this happens in story and cutscenes? Maybe.
But hey, Im not done yet. It gets crazier.
Not only are the Gods able to manipulate other elemts related to their domeins, they’re linked to them where they become stronger if their domain becomes bigger. You can say they draw their power from these places.
For example, Poseidon supposedly became more powerful with the expansion of the seas. We can assume the reason why Zeus was the strongest of them all was because the sky literally surrounds the entire world.
Now, what if this rule still applies to their descendants? And we know AO MC is likely a descendant of Poseidon. In a world where 99% of the entire world is fucking OCEAN.
They even received a part of Poseidon’s essence or blessing. Maybe they werent as cracked as before, but oh boy, they might be now.
This becomes even crazier if another theory I have (MC is related to Zeus too) turns out to be true. The whole ocean is one thing, imagine THE SKY.
And yall said PK is cracked
It also makes AO MC almost like a natural counter to Curse Users. Most Curse Users’ greatest weakness is the Ocean itself. Imagine facing someone who can just drop the ocean on you.
