Onine dating

Dating in Germany

2020.11.22 23:29 alice291092 Dating in Germany

Hi all, I just came to Germany a year ago, I met a German guy onine. I just want to understand the behaviors of German to manage expectation.
We had our first date, ended with lots of kisses, he drove me home, we exchanged numbers and he said we should hang out again, he would look in his schedule when he would be available. It's been a week since then, he texts me everyday about the details of his life and asks me about mine, the conversation is always fun and a bit flirty in a cute way. However, he doesn't mention when we will meet again.
He is working as an engineer and has lots of hobbys.
I don't know if he likes to text just for fun, or he is into me? If it's the second reason, why doesn't he ask me out? Is he dating also other people and making decisions?
I don't want to have the habit of waiting for his texts, develop expectation for nothing.
In my country it would be clear, but here I'm not sure. I hope for your advices. Thanks a lot.

2020.11.17 13:15 ByakuroHatori PSA: UK PS5 Confirmed Stock on Launch - Where To Buy + Tips

Game - They confirmed 9:00AM. Please account for queues.
Currys - Currys have said via Twitter they are available at 9AM!
John Lewis - The Website States Mid Morning!
Amazon UK - . The PS5 will be available at 12:00GMT NOON!

Very - They will have stock on launch but have said in a tweet it will be mid morning! They have said to check back online for further updates.
BT - 'Customers can log into their MyBT account and purchase a PS5 from November 19, which is the official launch date for the new console in the UK and Europe.' - TrustedReviews

EE - 'Those who belong to mobile network EE can also claim a console tomorrow as part of their existing contract, carrying the payment over 11 months with no interest. It’s possible to pay the outstanding balance right away if you have the money spare.' - TrustedReviews

TIPS THATS I USED TO SECURE A PS5

I typed in PS5 Stock Alert on Google and used StockInformer. It alerted me with a siren and notification on screen when Very had it in stock. I immediately went over and pre-ordered.
I had all the websites I knew it would come into stock on open on different tabs. Periodically refreshing each site. I was in a queue with game from 9:30AM and got in and 11:30AM. People were already Tweeting about how they secured one even though it wasn't showing the PS5 as live they managed to secure.
Good Luck to all of you!
I hope a moderator can pin this so everyone is able to see it and if I have missed any stores that have confirmed stock for launch please put it in the comments and I will update!

Edit:
I have updated and double checked all websites. As to what mid-morning is, I couldn't tell you.
This is the final edit to the post. I truly hope everyone here is able to secure a system tomorrow.
Please let me know in the comments if you do. Good luck!

2020.09.05 01:47 zelaurion Are learned moves at level 7 randomized on the latest patch?

I've been experimenting and got some really weird stuff - like one Blit trained from level 6 to level 7 learned Spinning Kick (it doesn't even have feet!) and another Elemental Up, while when I tried with Onins they got Natural Heal/Super Slam.
Level 7-10 Nexomon encountered in the wild and in tamer battles all seem to have a somewhat randomized 4th move as well. I'm not sure if this is intended or a glitch... does anyone else have any insight into this? (I'm playing on the most up-to-date version available on Switch if that helps)

Click Here For The Actual Mega Guide/Question Thread!

We are looking for dedicated users to help us update the MEGA guide and the Wiki! We need updated Guides for the newest and best ways to make money!

Also, what are the "must-have" or priority upgrades in businesses?
  2. We could go a step further and include a flow chart of unlocks for popular vehicles, for example for the Mk.II to be fully utilized requires Nightclub > Terrorbyte > Specialised Vehicle Workshop > Mk.II upgrades.
If you feel you can merge two posts together, go for it! Get all the information about a specific subject in one place.
Additionally:
  • A new Quick Start Guide For Newbies as the game has changed in the last 4 years
  • A review and updated version of Solo Rags to Riches as it hasn't been updated in 2 years.
  • Leveling up, create a guide on the best ways to level up. as it hasn't been updated in 2 years.
  • An update to the Tips and Tricks thread - in text form as that hasn't been updated in 4 years.
  • Update the Mega list of heist tips and tricks Need a Diamond Casino FAQ thread.
  • On a more fun note, we should update the Guide burnt out of gta While most things listed there still ring true, the game has changed! What else can the burnt-out person do?
  • Create a post that has links to all past weekly update posts by date.
We are looking to slim it down and make it easier for new people to navigate it. Ideas on what to add, delete, and merge together would be helpful as well!

For the Wiki, we need people to take charge of pages dedicated to a specific topic, to clean up old threads, and create new ones where we see fit! Let us know as this is also very important.

2020.05.26 20:26 tagm1545 Broke up 6y relationship because of cheating, lying, behavioural and communication problems. I still love her and don't know what to do.

I (26 M) ended my relationship with my ex (24 F) yesterday after reuniting with her again for a year. We first ended back in December 2017 after 4.5y together because we both had behavioural issues. I was verbally abusive, aggressive, and wanted things my way. She had strong lack of attention, laziness, immaturity and deep communication problems. We stayed apart for 2 years before reuniting again in April 2019.
In this period we stayed apart we both were extremely hurt and realised there was no way we could continue together because we both had to deal with our own problems, and mature to become better individually better. I focused heavily into therapy for 1.5 years, older trusted and mature people advice, religion, solid friendships and a support group. She decided to go to a foreign country for a exchange trip and English training for 6 months and there she said she was changed for good, but never committed herself with any therapy, or any behavioural or communication advice from anybody.
After she came back from the exchange program we still had the same friends group and eventually got closer. It was obvious to everybody we still loved each other and had strong feelings for one another. One day we had a one in a lifetime encounter, we had a sincere talk, cried, asked for forgiveness from our mistakes, expressed things we never shared, and it was a very sincere life changing event for our relationship. Since this date we got even closer and although we had some sparks here and there, we talked to our families and I asked her parents for forgiveness for my behaviour in the past, our friends continued to support us coming back together and that's what we did. In April 2019 we were back as a couple.
After we got back together I was slowly realising she didn't really changed. It was truly a mistake to get back together, she portrayed to be a completely different person coming back from her 6 months trip. She was visually changed and she could really convince that she had really changed while in her alone time immerse in a completely different culture, but she really wasn't. She just got back with the same behavioural issues, the same or even worse communication problems and she even got jealousy issues with a female friend who had and still has a boyfriend till this day.
As time went by our problems from the first time we were together started to face and new problems were put in the table. She decided to go to a voluntary trip to the amazon forest to help locals in need and there she met another volunteer guy, felt in love with him and even mentioned to her tutor that she wanted to stay and live with him and do volunteer work for life. While in the trip she constantly ignored my messages, saying it was lack of service in the woods, but she could post pictures no prob everyday. I just felt she was acting weird but we never had betrayal history or anything like that..
When she came back from her trip she felt guilty and told everything that happened to me. I instantly felt sick and cried and decided to go home. She was like another person to me. She was even still feeling "jet lag" but in a different way. She was still attached to the other guy and couldn't decide what she wanted. Me or her life in the woods with this guy she just met for a week. And then I went of to my car and there she entered my car as I was still in shock with everything that happened and couldn't start the engine. We stayed sit there just crying. And after several minutes I just hugged her and said I forgive her. And she promised she would work things out and completely forget about the guy.
After that moment trusting her was very hard. She still had him in her social network, he would still talk to her occasionally up until 3 weeks or something that she completely blocked him and she never mentioned him again. But trust was never the same. She still had strong lack of attention, lack of empathy, laziness, insecurity issues, jealousy when there was clearly nothing and general immaturity, not being able to sustain a grown up relationship.
She would still refuse to put herself into therapy or communication tutoring, she basically never did anything to improve her behaviour issues and become a better person. She would hide things from me saying she thought I would react in a specific way. She would constantly put herself into trouble at work because she couldn't communicate well and her clients would complain about her. She would only say she was sorry after every single fight we had and promise to change whenever she felt we were about to break up and put herself into her knees and beg for forgiveness but in real life after I had forgiven her each and every time selflessly she would do nothing to improve and act different.
It was up until this week that things really ended for us. I was in the hospital with my mom letting her into a room to be taken into ICU because she was not getting better from home treatment for covid 19 for the past 2 weeks. I asked if she could stay with me on the phone because it was going to be a very difficult situation to face alone. I asked if she could call me twice a day or just send me supportive messages, but she said that she wouldn't have any time available to help and be present for me because she had her post graduate orthodontics training to take that week and she was supposed to be busy from 7am till 5pm, but I left the hospital at 8pm and she didn't say a word about how we were doing and if my mom was really taken into ICU.
That only showed me how little she cared for me. But then when I thought things couldn't get worse I found out she lied to me saying she had to take this course, but instead she was selling a online English course all day and wanted to beat the company selling records as she was performing really good. The only way I found out about this is because her selling report was shared onine by somebody in her family to congratulate her on being the person that most sold English courses that day.
That was it for me. She left me alone taking my mom into ICU and couldn't even text me to give me courage and support while she was selling English courses online. She lied about not being available to be there for me and this was her last lie. We had a huge argument on how she never changed, on how us coming back together was the worst mistake I've ever done. On how she refused this whole 6 years together to search for professional help for her behaviour issues while I took no extra time to spend 1.5 years on therapy and get my shit together. She cheated on me less than 3 months we got back together, she would constantly lie about things, hide things from me, and act out of immaturity.
We broke up yesterday after several, infinite times I openly forgave her of her mistakes, after 6 years waiting for her to improve on herself and completely letting go the cheating, the trust issues I had after the lies, and just negotiating what was never to be negotiable in a adult relationship, just because I loved her to death. And I thought she would be my wife in the future and the mother of my child. I am here today, still deeply in love with her, still suffering like crazy, still having to face my mom being put into ICU and I don't know what to do.
TL;DR: broke up 6y relationship yesterday because of cheating, lying, behavioural issues, immaturity, and communication problems but still deeply in love with her. I dealt with my behavioural issues for a 1.5 years in therapy and became a more mature man but she refuses to treat her problems after 6 years. To make things worse my mom is in ICU treating covid 19 and I feel completely lost and I don't know what to do.

She was even still feeling "jet lag" but in a different way. She was still attached to the other guy and couldn't decide what she wanted. Me or her life in the woods with this guy she just met for a week. And then I went of to my car and there she entered my car as I was still in shock with everything that happened and couldn't start the engine. We stayed sit there just crying. And after several minutes I just hugged her and said I forgive her. And she promised she would work things out and completely forget about the guy.
After that moment trusting her was very hard. She still had him in her social network, he would still talk to her occasionally up until 3 weeks or something that she completely blocked him and she never mentioned him again. But trust was never the same. She still had strong lack of attention, lack of empathy, laziness, insecurity issues, jealousy when there was clearly nothing and general immaturity, not being able to sustain a grown up relationship.
She would still refuse to put herself into therapy or communication tutoring, she basically never did anything to improve her behaviour issues and become a better person. She would hide things from me saying she thought I would react in a specific way. She would constantly put herself into trouble at work because she couldn't communicate well and her clients would complain about her. She would only say she was sorry after every single fight we had and promise to change whenever she felt we were about to break up and put herself into her knees and beg for forgiveness but in real life after I had forgiven her each and every time selflessly she would do nothing to improve and act different.
It was up until this week that things really ended for us. I was in the hospital with my mom letting her into a room to be taken into ICU because she was not getting better from home treatment for covid 19 for the past 2 weeks. I asked if she could stay with me on the phone because it was going to be a very difficult situation to face alone. I asked if she could call me twice a day or just send me supportive messages, but she said that she wouldn't have any time available to help and be present for me because she had her post graduate orthodontics training to take that week and she was supposed to be busy from 7am till 5pm, but I left the hospital at 8pm and she didn't say a word about how we were doing and if my mom was really taken into ICU.
That only showed me how little she cared for me. But then when I thought things couldn't get worse I found out she lied to me saying she had to take this course, but instead she was selling a online English course all day and wanted to beat the company selling records as she was performing really good. The only way I found out about this is because her selling report was shared onine by somebody in her family to congratulate her on being the person that most sold English courses that day.
That was it for me. She left me alone taking my mom into ICU and couldn't even text me to give me courage and support while she was selling English courses online. She lied about not being available to be there for me and this was her last lie. We had a huge argument on how she never changed, on how us coming back together was the worst mistake I've ever done. On how she refused this whole 6 years together to search for professional help for her behaviour issues while I took no extra time to spend 1.5 years on therapy and get my shit together. She cheated on me less than 3 months we got back together, she would constantly lie about things, hide things from me, and act out of immaturity.
We broke up yesterday after several, infinite times I openly forgave her of her mistakes, after 6 years waiting for her to improve on herself and completely letting go the cheating, the trust issues I had after the lies, and just negotiating what was never to be negotiable in a adult relationship, just because I loved her to death. And I thought she would be my wife in the future and the mother of my child. I am here today, still deeply in love with her, still suffering like crazy, still having to face my mom being put into ICU and I don't know what to do.
TL;DR: broke up 6y relationship yesterday because of cheating, lying, behavioural issues, immaturity, and communication problems but still deeply in love with her. I dealt with my behavioural issues for a 1.5 years in therapy and became a more mature man but she refuses to treat her problems after 6 years. To make things worse my mom is in ICU treating covid 19 and I feel completely lost and I don't know what to do.

2019.07.27 22:11 SuperduperFan92 Jak and Daxter Theory: Mar's Identity REVEALED!

Jak and Daxter Theory: Mar's Identity REVEALED!
This theory explores a possible answer that has NEVER previously been considered. Though this argument may sound absurd at first, it is indeed my preferred interpretation, since it provides a satisfying (though silly) solution that subverts expectations and provides deeper meaning to subtle connections.

However, please note that the confidence that I express throughout this post is purely rhetorical and performative. I know this theory is ridiculous and unlikely... but for the duration of this post, I shall pretend that this not the case. I implore readers to likewise suspend their disbelief until they get to the end. Then afterward you can tell me how dumb this idea is.


Introduction

The Jak and Daxter series began with Jak accidentally knocking Daxter into a pool of Dark Eco, thus transforming his best friend into a creature known as an Ottsel. And as the duo set out on their quest to reverse this transformation, their journey not only turned them both into heroes but also exposed them to the hidden truths that have shaped their world and their destinies.

Since the very beginning, the Jak and Daxter series has derived much of its charm from the mysteries that linger throughout its vibrant universe. The largest of these revolved around the Precursors, an ancient yet advanced civilization that mysteriously disappeared. The later games explored the nature of these enigmatic beings and explained why they vanished long ago, thus providing a satisfying resolution for the players. As the series went on, many of its major questions all received clear answers. But, there is one mystery that went totally unsolved: Who is Mar?

The Mystery of Mar

Mar was the founder of Haven City, and his legendary feats protected the denizens from the monsters known as the Metal Heads. He was not only a great warrior but a brilliant visionary. He built the city, its power system, the shield walls, and basically 90% of its infrastructure. Though he is a critically important historical figure in the fictional universe, the player never really gets to see Mar (beyond a statue or two). He is left shrouded in mystery, and the character’s true identity remains very unclear.

It has been a decade since a new installment has come out, even longer if you’re one of those fans who insist that The Lost Frontier doesn’t exist. So generally, most people have given up hope for getting a definitive answer on this topic. However, it’s quite possible that, based off the current games alone, the truth regarding Mar can be determined by examining the clues sprinkled across all six entries in the series.

After analyzing every single game (yes, even The Lost Frontier), I believe I have uncovered the answer. And let me say upfront that it’s NOT who you think it is, so buckle up and let’s dive right in.

The Jak Conundrum

For years, fans have been debating and speculating about the true identity of Mar, with much of the discourse revolving around whether or not he could be Jak himself.

In the second game, the player discovers that Jak is actually a distant descendent of Mar who was born in Haven City but was then sent to the past so he could grow up in a safe time period before the city even existed. After becoming a teenager, he returned to the future so he could save Haven City from the Metal Heads and other evil forces. During one of the last cutscenes in Jak 3, though, it’s revealed that, before being sent to the past, young Jak originally went by the name MAR. And in a series with a ton of time travel, this detail spawned a lot of speculation. After all, both Jak and Mar were great heroes who could skillfully channel Eco, so there certainly are some curious similarities between the two.

The popular theory suggests that Jak would someday travel to the past so he could establish Haven City and fulfill his destiny. There are even a number of hints indicating that Mar is indeed time traveler, so these clues lend credibility to this speculation. In the Mega Scrapbook available through the Jak II bonus features, there is a page from an old script where a character specifically states that Mar arrived to their world in a ship called the Time Cutter.

Proof that Mar was a Time Traveler

Sig: That Ruby Key opened up some other strange stuff down here. If I know my bedtime stories right, I think this must be the control room for Mar’s old ship called the Time Cutter. I heard about this thing all my life. Stories say this old ship brought Mar to our world long ago… but from where. Nobody knows. They say Mar hid from the Metal Heads down here for years before building Haven City.

I mean, come on! The ship is literally called the Time Cutter. That sure as heck sounds like a name for a time machine to me. Though this detail was dropped from the final game, this cut line indicates what Naughty Dog had in mind when it came to developing Mar's backstory.

And then, when Jak and Daxter complete a bonus mission in Jak 3, they even hear this line from a wise Precursor Oracle:

Precursor Oracle: Once again you prove the stories were true; you were - we mean, you are - a great hero.

So, case closed, right? Jak is Mar. Or so it would appear. But some details just don’t neatly align.

No Resemblance

First of all, it is my personal belief that the Statue of Mar looks nothing, and I mean NOTHING like Jak. And Jak is not a dumb guy or anything, but he doesn’t seem smart enough to build all the complicated technology that is attributed to Mar’s handiwork, like the Eco Grid powering the city or even Mar’s Gun, a massive laser cannon that can penetrate the strongest fortification.

Granted, these inconsistencies aren’t necessarily deal breakers, since there may in fact be a way around them. But these discordant details do provide some complications when it comes to logically reconciling aspects of the Jak/Mar theory.

But if Mar is not Jak, then who is? A lot of fans gravitate toward the Jak theory, not necessarily because he is the most likely candidate, but rather because he is widely believed to be the ONLY candidate.

If Mar isn’t Jak, then that would just make Mar a random stranger or some insignificant side character. Boring! Or maybe Mar is literally a nobody, a mere myth that never truly existed. But with so much mystery built around his identity, these options would be immensely unsatisfying. So who else could Mar possibly be, then?

The Shocking Truth

There is indeed an alternative candidate who has never been considered in the history of the Internet (trust me, I checked). This may sound like an absurd idea, but there is honestly a mountain of evidence backing this up. When one looks at all the different factors, the answer becomes clear: Mar is none other than... Daxter.

The Legendary Mar

Hold it! Don’t click off that page quite yet! Let me make my case.

In the second installment, Jak and Daxter obtain a powerful magical object called the Precursor Stone. By the end of the game, they learn that this stone is actually a Precursor Egg that contains an ethereal Precursor entity within. But according to the Metal Head Leader, it’s not just any egg but rather Mar’s last egg.

Metal Kor: Now that you’ve been altered with dark eco, the Stone will never open for you. Your younger self, however, still has the pure gift! He alone can awaken the Stone and the Precursor entity, which sleeps inside.
Jak: This stone is a Precursor?
Metal Kor: The last Precursor egg. Mar was clever. He covered his tracks well through time, hiding his last egg from me, and building the shield and city to defend it! It has been a long siege, but today, I will finally feed on the last Precursor life force!

Mar's Last Egg

Granted, there has been some debate about whether the Precursor Stone is a legitimate Precursor Egg, but seeing as how this claim is coming directly from the Precursors' ancient foe, the words of the Metal Head Leader carry a lot credibility. If anyone would be able to correctly identify a Precursor Egg, it would be him. Plus, the entire story for Jak II would fall apart if it wasn't a real egg. For a more in-depth analysis of the Precursor Stone's authenticity, (Click Here).

So if Mar produced a Precursor Egg, then that would make him a Precursor (at least during some phase of his life). After all, Mar seemed to possess immense talents when it came to using Eco and building complex technology, which is appropriate given that these skills appear to be inherently imbued within the Precursors’ very code.

Why is this important? Well, in Jak 3 it was revealed that the all-powerful Precursors were actually Ottsels.

The Most Powerful Beings in the Universe

So wait, if Mar is a Precursor, and Precursors are Ottsels, then that would make Mar an Ottsel just like Daxter, right? Yeah yeah, I know Mar’s statue looks very humanoid, but the Precursors were shown to have the power to effortlessly transform other humanoid beings into Ottsels, so perhaps they could also do the reverse. Maybe they could even shapeshift themselves. Heck, even the Precursor entity that emerged from the egg adopted a human-shaped form, so it’s not entirely out of the question. And if select Metal Heads could adopt humanoid guises, then there is no reason why the Precursors can’t do the same.

Also, keep in mind that there are a number of lines indicating that Mar did indeed wield the power of the Precursors in order to accomplish his legendary feats, so this would make even more sense if Mar was indeed a Precursor himself.

Veger: The rail system leads deep into the planet where it's said the ancient ones wait to bestow unimaginable powers upon the worthy. I will save the world with that power, just as Mar did!

Then, toward the end of Jak 3, it’s revealed that in order to gain the power of the Precursors, one must first become a Precursor. So if Mar did gain that power, then he must be a Precursor. Or if nothing else, he must have the Precursors’ essence flowing through his veins.

Precursor Oracle: You have proven your worth, warrior. We grant you the gift of evolution; the honor of becoming one of us.

Jak missed out on his shot of becoming a full-blooded Precursor, but Daxter has been one the whole time. So if Mar is indeed a Precursor life form, then it does make more sense for Mar to be connected to Daxter rather than Jak.

The Strongest Links

Upon taking a closer look at this complex mystery, the connections between Mar and Daxter become quite apparent, and all the puzzle pieces seemingly fall into place.

If Mar produced the Precursor Egg, then he would need to have a female Precursor in the equation. Well, at the end of Jak 3, the Precursors actually transform Tess, Daxter’s love interest, into a Precursor. In fact, Daxter and Tess constitute as the only Precursor romantic pairing in the whole series, so they pretty much have to be the source of the Precursor Egg.

The Future King and Queen of Haven City

Precursors also seem to possess an innate proficiency when it comes to technological expertise, so perhaps Daxter and Tess were able to build Haven City together by unleashing their hidden cognitive potential. After all, Daxter appeared to unconsciously tap into these latent technical talents when he somehow disarmed the Piercer Bomb and stopped it from blowing up the whole universe. And it’s possible that he again summoned his mechanical aptitudes when facing against the Sky Pirates and dismantling their aircraft systems.

Daxter putting his technological talents to good use

Tess would then be the likely architect behind Mar’s Gun since she was established as a weapons expert in Jak 3. Perhaps Tess helped Daxter construct the superweapon by applying her specialized knowledge of weaponry.

Tess: I'm designing new guns to help out the war effort.
Jak: You make guns now?
Tess: Yeah. I just finished this new gun. It sports a multi-port, large-bore, gyro-burst launcher with blowback breech assist, using full-jacket, eco-depleted, armor-piercing slugs, and a continuous kill zone scanner for tight groupings at a high-cycle rate of fire. (giggles) It's a hobby.

Mar's Gun (Tess Obviously Helped)

As for the Eco Grid that powers Haven City, there was actually a mission in Jak 3 where Daxter was downloaded directly into its ancient circuits in a Tron-like fashion for a game of classic Pac-man. So, maybe he was able to build the power grid because he had already seen its inner-workings in the future. The same thing could apply to all the other stuff designed by Mar, including the city’s layout, the Light Tower, and even Mar’s Tomb.

Daxter exploring the Eco Grid

Speaking about that tomb, it’s interesting that it is filled with insects and arachnids, especially since Daxter has a long history with these creatures. In his spinoff game, he was a bug exterminator that often went head-to-head with creepy-crawlies. Even dating back to the first game, Daxter was shown to possess a strong fear of spiders.

Daxter: Great. Sounds like a real cheery place. Let me guess… there are spiders in the Spider Caves, right?!

The tomb was designed by Mar to keep out trespassers, so maybe Daxter filled it with threats that he personally dreaded in order to scare people away. He put his bug exterminator skills to good use and wrangled up insects and arachnids to test his bloodline, since the only people worthy of Mar’s legacy would be those that triumphed over the same type of foes that Mar himself faced in life.

The Trials of Manhood (Featuring Mar's Collection of Bugs and Spiders)

One might argue that Daxter’s previous aversion to arachnids and bugs would make him less likely to incorporate them into the site of his symbolic resting place. However, in Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier, Daxter is shown overcoming his fear of spiders while in his Dark Daxter form.

Dark Daxter: Sticky webbing… Is this a joke little spider? Come closer, we’ll see who’s laughing.

Dark Daxter: Who knew spiders could be this much fun?

Dark Daxter: Come here spider… I have some plans for you.

In this installment, Daxter even learns how to use the spiders to serve his purposes and help him advance through the sewers. As Mar, it’s possible that Daxter could apply this same lesson by utilizing spiders in the tomb’s design. After all, Daxter did indeed discover that, under the right circumstances, something as dangerous as a spider could provide some usefulness. Therefore, it’s not too farfetched to suggest that Daxter could have incorporated spiders and insects into the Trials of Manhood.

Also, only those who hail from the House of Mar are supposed to be able to pass the trials of the tomb. But not only does Daxter survive the deadly tests, but he even beats Jak to the central chamber when the two get separated. And he does this by facing off with a giant spider, a trial that Jak himself totally skipped. So if only Mar’s bloodline is fit to conquer those tests, then that means Daxter must be related to Mar as well, perhaps because he is Mar.

It should also be noted that upon discovering the tomb, the Precursor Oracle seemingly rejected older Jak when he stepped forward, claiming that the child was not old enough to face the tests. Many fans assume that the Precursor Oracle was referring to young Jak, but if you watch that cutscene again, the Precursor Oracle appears to be reacting to older Jak approaching the door, not his younger self.

Precursor Oracle: Finally, the Chosen One stands before me. Enter and prove yourself worthy to claim the ancient birthright.
Older Jak steps forward.
Precursor Oracle: No! This child is too young to face the tests!

Jak steps forward and gets rejected

So if Jak wasn’t old enough to face the test, then maybe Daxter was the one who was old enough to attain the stone (by being a few months older, but that still might count).

Precursor Oracle: Welcome, young warrior. Many eons have passed since our hope burned so brightly. Today you have proven yourself worthy to receive Mar's legacy.
Daxter: He's talking about me! Thanks your holy statue-ness. This tomb wasn't so tough!
Precursor Oracle: What you are about to receive contains grave power, and with it comes grave responsibility.

Notice how the Precursor Oracle doesn't correct Daxter's claim in this instance. In the next game, however, the Precursors demonstrated their willingness to speak up when Daxter incorrectly assumed that he was the one being addressed.

Precursor Oracle: You will need all the power you can muster to survive this terrible test, great one.
Daxter: I can handle it.
Precursor Oracle: I was talking to the tall one, shorty!
Daxter: Hey!

With this mind, perhaps the Precursors didn't correct Daxter in Mar's Tomb because they were indeed addressing him at that moment. It was Daxter who was worthy to receive Mar's legacy, perhaps because he is literally Mar.

The Precursors have this pesky habit of addressing both Jak and Daxter without specifying who their comments are primarily directed toward. This even dates back to the very first game.

Precursor Oracle: Who awakens the Oracle? Wait, one of you has the light within. From before time, I have watched and waited for the true hero to return.

In this case, one might assume that the Precursor Oracle is addressing Jak when it says "one of you" since the young hero possesses the "pure gift" within. But it's also possible that the Precursor Oracle could be referring to Daxter and his exposure to Dark Eco, since that dark ooze is similarly described as a "light" later in the same game.

Precursor Oracle: Beware of the dark light, for it has twisted the fate of one of you.

Note again how the Precursor Oracle uses the term "one of you" when addressing the duo. So if this comment is indeed directed at Daxter's exposure to Dark Eco, then it's possible that the previous interaction could have been directed at him as well (with the "light within" actually being the "dark light" referenced here). This would mean that Daxter is the "true hero" whose return the Precursors had been awaiting.

Keep in mind that there have been multiple instances throughout the series where characters have been vague about whether they are referring to Jak or Daxter, so this seems to be a reoccurring component of the writing that exists on purpose.

Samos the Sage: Every bone in my body tells me that the answers rest on the shoulders of a young boy. Oblivious to his destiny, uninterested in the search for truth, and rejecting of my guidance! And why would he want to listen to old Samos the Sage, anyway? I'm only the master of green eco, one of the wisest men on the planet!

In the first cutscene of the series, was Samos referring to Jak or Daxter? Which of them was the young boy? Maybe the ambiguity of this line was intentional in order to downplay the significance of Daxter's destiny.

Surprising Similarities

When one takes a step back, a number of subtle similarities between Mar and Daxter can be identified.

In Jak 3, there are multiple bonus missions where the Precursor Oracles instruct Jak and Daxter to find Precursor Orbs at spots that Mar used for reflection.

Precursor Oracle: This spot was a place of reflection by the great warrior Mar; reach it in time and the prize is yours.

It turns out that almost all these spots have the same thing in common: They’re near shaded areas and are in view of a sandy beach and a body of water. In this same game, though, Daxter mentions how calming it is to sit in the shade and watch women walk by in their bikinis.

Daxter: Isn’t it kinda nice to just curl up in the shade sometimes? Just chillin’ it; watching the hot babes prancing around in their skimpy little bikinis, you know, just how they jiggle. I get that special tingling feeling in my… tail.

Daxter just so happens to be describing a beach-like setting that closely matches up with Mar’s chosen places of reflection. So, if Mar is indeed Daxter, then it would make sense for his spots of reflection to be by beaches and near the shade, since that aligns with Daxter’s preferences as well.

Mar’s Place of Reflection

Another link between Mar and Daxter comes from their shared connection to the color red. Anything remotely associated with Mar just so happens to be red, including the Heart of Mar gem, Mar’s Ruby Key, Mar’s Gun, and even the Krimzon Guard, a law enforcement entity presumably founded by Mar to protect the city. And though Daxter primarily sports orange in his Ottsel form, his humanoid form was a kid with a red tunic, red eyebrows, and red-tipped hair. If Daxter was to return to his original form, he might also return to red as his primary color.

Mar's Association with Red

It should also be noted that Mar’s Statue depicts the great hero with a sword. Jak, despite his wide arsenal of guns, Eco, vehicles, and mech suits, never once used a sword-like melee weapon. Daxter, on the other hand, gained experience in melee weapon combat when he used the electric flyswatter in his spinoff game. Daxter was fairly skilled with that kind of weaponry, and it could be argued that his experience with the flyswatter allowed him to develop transferrable skills that could be applied to swinging around a sword.

Osmo: In my day, we hunted bugs with style and class. A more elegant weapon, for a more civilized time.

When Osmo gives the flyswatter to Daxter, this line’s allusion to Star Wars even implicitly compares the weapon to a laser sword. Therefore, the connection between the flyswatter and sword combat is supported by both the gameplay mechanics and the narrative’s text.

Daxter wielding a melee weapon

Then there are Daxter’s Eco-channeling abilities, which might be extremely powerful compared to most characters. If Mar is a Precursor, it makes sense for his Eco-channeling abilities to be considerably high as well. It’s true that Daxter never got many opportunities to demonstrate his Eco powers in the main titles, but as a Precursor, he should possess plenty of untapped potential.

There is however one game that gives the players a glimpse of what Daxter is capable of accomplishing with aid of Eco, and that installment is the much maligned Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier. In that game, Daxter comes into contact with a large amount of Dark Eco and instantly gains the form of Dark Daxter.

Dark Daxter (which is technically canon)

Even Jak, who possesses an innate talent for Eco-channeling partly due to his lineage from Mar, only acquired his Dark Jak form after two years of painful experimentation. But Daxter, on the other hand, could immediately channel vast quantities of Dark Eco and effortlessly transform into his dark form following his initial exposure, so that may mean he is even more skilled than Jak when it comes to using Eco.

It should also be noted that while channeling Eco, Daxter appears to gain incredible upper-body strength that brings him closer to muscularly matching Mar's buff physique. Even when Jak is at his strongest during his eco forms, his boost in strength doesn't change his muscular build all that much, or at least not enough to resemble Mar's body type. But Daxter does indeed gain a massive boost that makes him taller and buffer, so just imagine how exposure to Eco could impact his humanoid form.

The Traces of Mar’s Legacy

The evidence for this theory could further be found in the remnants of Mar's reign, ranging from his relics to even his documented heroics.

Some fans may find it difficult to envision the clumsy humanoid Daxter as the mighty Mar, but keep in mind that Mar’s abilities as a warrior might have been somewhat overstated. Throughout various games like Daxter, Jak II, Jak 3, and Jak X: Combat Racing, the orange furball has been shown telling exaggerated tales, often to people at bars. I ask you this: Where did all these legends about Mar come from? Someone must have told the thrilling stories of Mar’s heroic feats. If Daxter was Mar, it would be quite amusing if he was the one who hyped up Mar’s image through his inflated ego-stroking storytelling abilities.

Daxter: And there I was, toe to toe with five, uh, fifty-five of the nastiest lurkers you ever saw. Suddenly, they came at me from the left, so I moved to the right, with a chop, and a kick, and a- (yells)

Daxter: So there I was, toe-to-toe with five of the nastiest metal heads you ever saw! Slime oozing from monstrous jaws! Teeth sharper than daggers! Slowly, all ten of them surround me. But do I surrender? No! I summon my highly trained killer instincts, and pounce! Hiya! Hiya! Wha! Hah! And when the dust cleared, there were twenty less metal heads in the world!

Daxter: Ooh, ooh! Wait until you hear about my adventures in the wasteland. So there I was, facing a whole brood of slobbering metal heads, when all of a sudden-

Daxter: So there we were, wheel to wheel with the nastiest racing cars I’ve ever seen. Razor-sharp chrome gleaming in the dark, weapons bristling under rumbling hoods!

Perhaps Mar isn’t the god-like figure that the legends made him out to be, but instead he is merely a product of Daxter’s embellishments about his own exploits. And since Daxter tends to tell his extravagant tales to people in bars, it’s possible that the impaired states of his audience made them gullible enough to unquestionably accept the heroic accounts and retell them to friends and family until eventually these fables became reinforced as bedtime stories across generations. These mythic tales would even find their way into history books, perhaps with no one remembering where they originated from in the first place.

It's also suggested that Mar documented some of his adventures and research throughout his own writings.

Samos the Sage: Those Precursor pillars are some of the oldest artifacts we've ever found. Mar wrote that there was some ancient ruins to the west that were activated by five special artifacts and revealed wondrous truths.

Mar’s writings apparently stated that the Astro-viewer can reveal “wondrous” truths. However, when Jak uses it, he learns about the Dark Makers and he supposedly gets a glimpse of the Precursors’ true forms, neither of which he would describe was wondrous revelations. In fact, Jak looked quite stunned and shaken when the truth of the Precursors was revealed to him. However, when Daxter discovered the true forms of the Precursors, he considered that news to be wondrous and even performed a dance of joy. So it makes sense for Mar’s writings to be coming from Daxter’s perspective, since he would designate the truth about the Precursors to be quite wondrous.

Also, it should be pointed out that two of the three pieces to the Seal of Mar were in the possession of Lurkers. This is important because Brutter seemed especially fond of Daxter due to his Ottsel attributes, and it’s possible that this affinity could be echoed by other Lurkers as well. Brutter even recognized Jak and Daxter as honorary members of the Lurker tribe. Perhaps Daxter, as Mar, was uniquely positioned to develop a healthy dynamic with the Lurker clans when he returned to the past, so he entrusted them to safeguard the pieces to the Seal of Mar.

Let's return to the Time Cutter, since that scene has some fascinating content that was omitted from the final game. In a cut line, Sig states that Mar hid in the ship for years before building Haven City.

Sig: Stories say this old ship brought Mar to our world long ago… but from where. Nobody knows. They say Mar hid from the Metal Heads down here for years before building Haven City.

This type of behavior doesn’t seem very consistent with Jak’s proactive mindset, but Daxter on the other hand is exactly the type of person that would lay low and wait around for years before setting off to do something important. Keep in mind, it took him literally years to muster the mettle required to rescue Jak from prison, so it's not difficult to envision him killing time in the Time Cutter's control room.

When Daxter climbed on the statue of Mar, he has a fascinating line where he mentions that if Jak wasn’t in his life, he’d probably still have his humanoid form and wouldn’t be in the sewers without a pair of pants.

Jak: Where would you be without me, eh Dax?
Daxter: Well Jak, I probably wouldn't be two feet tall, fuzzy, and running around in a sewer without a pair of pants. God, I miss pants.

Interestingly, as he utters this dialogue, the image of Mar is within the frame. The statue is of a humanoid Precursor that happens to be in the sewers WITH a pair of pants. Perhaps the staging of this scene is meant to ironically hint at the idea of Daxter being Mar.

This theory might even add a layer of meaning to Daxter pulling out Mar’s Ruby Key as if it was the sword in the stone, something that could only be done by a destined ruler. After all, he pulls the Ruby Key out of the statue’s sword that is itself pierced into a stone (as depicted by the statue), thus creating an appropriately mirrored scenario between both Mar and Daxter in that exact moment. So as Mar is pulling a sword from a stone, Daxter is likewise pulling a key out of a stone statue.

Analogous to Pulling the Sword from the Stone

Ultimately, when one looks at Mar’s legends, writings, relics, alliances, conduct, and statues, it seems all the traces of his reign point in one direction: Daxter.

Small Stuff That Lines Up

Honestly, the evidence goes far beyond the examples already discussed. There are so many small details that just fit with this theory as well.

Daxter being Mar would explain why an image of Daxter is in the ancient carvings of the Lurker Totem that just so happens to contain a Mar relic embedded into it. If the carvings of the totem are indeed ancient, then in order for its design to feature someone like Daxter, it would need to be inspired by someone with knowledge of the future that regarded Daxter as a significant enough figure to merit inclusion.

The Shadow: Onin and I have learned that a piece to the Seal of Mar is contained within its ancient carvings.

Daxter's Likeness in the Ancient Lurker Totem

Daxter being Mar would explain why the Mar Memorial Racing Stadium has an orange roof, since it would be a reference to Daxter’s racing nickname Orange Lightning from Jak II, Jak 3, and Jak X: Combat Racing. Daxter did manage to win first place in the Class 2 Race, so he is indeed a skilled racer too. Therefore, if the stadium was named after Mar due to him founding the racing sport, then it make sense for the stadium's design to evoke Daxter's racing title: Orange Lightning.

Daxter: You can call me, Orange Lightning—zazazing!

Daxter: Orange Lightning is ready to race!

The Mar Memorial Stadium

Daxter being Mar would explain why Mar’s statue is described as ugly, since the series repeatedly pokes fun at Daxter’s humanoid form and Ottsel form being ugly.

Jak’s Uncle: I would've pledged my word that I had ninety of them. But I gather that your young friend, you know, the little annoying miserably ugly one, might have just pilfered them as a sort of a spot of fun.

The Shadow: Sorry kid, never seen you before, and I never forget a face. Especially one that ugly.

Krew: Ah, the bedtime stories were true. The fabled Heart of Mar was hidden inside that ugly statue of the old boy.

And the list of connections goes on and on.

In fact, here are a few lines below that may possess small nods to the similarities between Daxter and Mar.

Daxter: Well, if I had the Precursor Stone, with all that power, I’d use it to build a giant palace.

Daxter: Then it’d just be you and me baby - starting civilization all over again.

Daxter: Sheesh. That Mar guy must’ve never slept much!

But perhaps the most interesting evidence comes at the end of Jak II. Samos the Sage, the wisest character in the whole series (who seems to know more than he lets on), tells Jak that perhaps he’ll meet Mar in a future adventure. This is weird thing to suggest, given that Mar has supposedly been dead for hundreds of years.

Samos the Sage: I’ve got a feeling we’ll meet Mar someday. He may be closer than you think.

As Samos speaks that line, the scene cuts to a shot angled from behind the sign of the Naughty Ottsel. When I first saw that scene, I thought the deliberately odd framing was meant to imply that Mar was somehow watching the characters from a safe distance. Basically, it seemed like a possible POV shot of an unknown observer.

Closer Than You Think

Now, however, I think the significance behind the curious shot-choice has more to do with the Naughty Ottsel being caught in the frame. When Samos utters the line, perhaps cutting to the Naughty Ottsel sign is meant to hint at Mar’s identity. The massive truth is literally looming over the characters in the form of the brightly lit mascot.

This could be hinting at Mar being an Ottsel/Precursor. Besides, as already discussed, Mar is indeed a Precursor, and Precursors were revealed to be Ottsels, so this conjecture might not be so farfetched. And seeing as how the Naughty Ottsel sign was specifically modeled on Daxter’s likeness, this could serve as an even more direct clue for Mar’s identity.

Furthermore, Samos said that Mar may be closer than Jak thinks, so it would be interesting if that line was alluding to the idea of Daxter being Mar. How ironic would it be if the legendary Mar-to-be was riding on Jak’s bony shoulder this whole time? If this were true, then Mar truly would be closer to Jak than he thinks. In fact, Daxter is as close to Jak as one can get.

There is one line spoken by a Precursor Oracle that is worth revisiting, as this theory helps to provide an entirely new context for interpreting it:

Precursor Oracle: Once again you prove the stories were true; you were - we mean, you are - a great hero.

When the Precursor Oracle refers to the “great hero” from the old stories, this possible allusion to the legends of Mar might be directed at the unlikely member of the heroic duo. Heck, maybe every Mar-related line ambiguously spoken to Jak and Daxter had less to do with Jak and more to do with Daxter. Besides, Jak might be “the greatest of heroes,” but he isn’t the only one to receive the distinction of “great hero” in these games. In fact, during the very final scene of the core trilogy, a character states this:

Seem: You are a great hero, Daxter.

Maybe, just maybe, Daxter is a greater hero than we think. Perhaps he is indeed the legendary Mar, the answer to the great mystery.

Conclusion

The idea of Daxter being Mar might sound silly at first, but this is the same series that subverted expectations by making the mysterious and powerful Precursor race comprised of furry rodents. So this type of twist would seem entirely consistent with Naughty Dog’s storytelling philosophy for this series, in which the truth is so preposterous that no one would dare suspect it.

And don’t forget that this entire series began with a single mission: To return Daxter back to his humanoid self. And though Daxter seemed to accept his Precursor status at the end of Jak 3, it would almost be fitting for him to someday reclaim his old form. This might even bring the narrative full circle, since the series began with Daxter being transformed.

What would a humanoid Daxter even look like after all these years? Perhaps the reason that Mar doesn’t resemble any known character is because the person that becomes Mar presently occupies a different form. And Daxter's face for his Ottsel form did undergo a massive redesign between the first two games, so maybe the same shift in facial structure could apply to his humanoid appearance. Or maybe Daxter could select a humanoid form of his own choosing, thus modeling himself on Mar’s likeness. After all, even when Daxter was in his humanoid form, he was described as unattractive, so it seems likely that he would ditch his scrawny bucktooth appearance in favor of a more chiseled physique with a strong jawline. And with the power of the Precursors at his disposal, perhaps Daxter could indeed adopt this stunningly handsome form.

Daxter and Tess might have gone back in time so that they could construct Haven City, reclaim their humanoid forms, and produce an entire lineage of humanoid-Precursor hybrids capable of skillfully channeling Eco just like the gods that created the universe. This would mean that Jak's innate eco skills are due to him being the descendent of a Precursor (which actually makes a lot of sense). And yes, this would establish Daxter as Jak's ancestor. Both have blue eyes, multi-colored hair, and perhaps Tess introduced the prominent blondish hair into the genetic line. So maybe Jak and Daxter don't just share a brotherly bond but also a blood connection.

Ultimately, even though Daxter’s name was dropped from the titles of multiple installments, it’s quite possible that he is the series’ most important heroic figure whose destiny even eclipses the one belonging to Jak. Without a Jak Four, maybe we’ll never get a definitive answer, but based on the clues, this may have been the direction that the series was heading in.

2019.05.18 23:30 ImmortalThunderGod79 Historical Evaluation on the Shinobi in Sekiro

Hi everyone, it's ImmortalThunderGod79 your amatuer history buff back again with another comprehensive historical post on Sekiro, but this times kudos for MisterAssassin collaborating with me on this one... And as promised, I will be talking about how closely authentic is the representation of Shinobi/Ninja are in this game and how much do they parallel with their historical counterparts so without further due. Lets get started shall we?
What is a Shinobi/Ninja?
When you call someone a Shinobi back in the day, they are not a shadow warrior nor are they a trained assassin... Shinobi was a noun and adverb respectively used to describe someone anyone who is a spy or performed something covert. GIVEN that some Shinobi were amazing at fighting especially if they were professionally-trained and came from the Bushi/Samurai class. A Samurai is a social class/status while a Shinobi is a job, these two things are not mutually exclusive (I know almost everyone on this subreddit is aware of this already, but I just wanna repeat it just in case as I still ran into people who had no idea this was the case).
In Sekiro, the game chooses to got with the historically-correct term “Shinobi” instead of its much later term “Ninja” which interestingly wasn’t even invented until the 20th century after World War II. Every Sengoku Period record always referred to them as Shinobi. So excellent on Miyazaki and Fromsoftware doing this for historical authenticity-sake!...
Now when we look at the term Shinobi No Mono and what it means, it explicitly states "a person of stealth and perseverance"--- essentially someone who endures through tough situations no matter how difficult the circumstances are, but another undertone behind it was to describe someone who is cunning and deceptive. In we are the Wolf (Sekiro), we are alone--- there is no one that could possibly help us protect Kuro (with maybe a few exceptions like Emma and Isshin) almost everyone is trying to kill you and you are constantly thrown into situations that seem unwinnable, but you learn to endure, persevere and adapt to overcome those overbearing obstacles by any means necessary for the sake of living on to defend the Divine of Heir. This game OUTSTANDINGLY personified the concept of what a Shinobi No Mono is and means.
Shinobi Being Represented As A Job
Perhaps one of the major aspects that Sekiro got right about the Shinobi is that it is treated as an occupation, a job that can be fulfilled by anyone of any social class and positions as it should be. Which makes it already stand out from its competitions where often times historians and pop-culture mediums often romanticize and portray this fantasy idea that they are a secret society of assassins or a separate warrior caste of farmers trained to combat against the oppressive noble Bushi class... Yes there was conflicts of farmers fighting against invading samurai, but the origin of the ninja is far more complicated than that and in no shape or form was it ever connected to the farmer’s uprisings as far as I’m concerned in most serious academic books and sources I have read.
In this game, we see the occupation of a ninja being taken on by people from both the lower and upper class thus it is not a mutually exclusive role nor is it a social class of its own entity. Several of these Shinobi representations include one, but not limited to:
-Senpou Assassins (aka the Angry Little Midget Men): In lore it was said they were once paid mercenary guards of Senpou Temple, but now they do the dirty work of the monks in their quest for immortality. In addition the Interior Ministry also seems to be paying them for their services in espionage, infiltration and assassination. Without a doubt in my mind, these guys are meant to the game’s representation of the historical Rappa. The Blackhat Badger was once apart these groups of renegades.
Historically these kinds of ninja mainly consist of pirates, mountain brigands, burglars and robbers, using their talents in Ninjutsu (alternatively Shinobi No Jutsu) covert tactics for selfish gains and to get paid by daimyo from across the country for their deeds. Rappa shinobi were closer to being mercenaries in nature than shinobi of ashigaru and samurai status who unlike their rappa counterparts continue to be of loyal service to daimyo and/or bushi families/clans.
The most famous band of rappa shinobi that were active in the Sengoku Period was the Fuma clan led by Fuma Kotaro, specializing in horseback guerrilla warfare, night raid attacks and infiltration, as well as being proficient at deception. Their reputation and skill allowed them to gain paid employment in the service of the Hojo clan.
According to the Bansenshukai, these thieves and bandits were sometimes considered better at Ninjutsu because its all they do-- lying, cheating and breaking into houses. Thus have far more experience doing this line of work and would be useful for any daimyo who does not have samurai and ashigaru that possess skills in stealth and espionage. But also they’re considered valuable expendables for daimyo who do have samurai and ashigaru that do ninja work. Because should the thief or bandit ever be caught and killed on the mission he is tasked with, nothing of value would be lost cause the daimyo saved himself the risk of losing his prized shinobi of samurai and ashigaru status.
The Rappa’s origins and perception of who they were in history, made them a possible contributor that fed into the romantisization that Shinobi were mainly lowly mercenaries and assassins who only fight for payment and fight for no one, but themselves.
-Spear Adepts (aka the Straw-Hat Double Bladed Guys): Now these guys are absolutely perfect. What they wearing from the straw hat and raincoat is actually one of the common disguises that ninja used to dress as ordinary harmless travelers and farmers, allowing them to slip into enemy territory unnoticed and do espionage work right under their noses... Absolutely fantastic!
-Nightjar Shinobi (aka the WOOOOOO Bombers): The Shinobi who are loyal only to Ashina. This leads me to strongly believe that instead of being ninja that work on a mercenary basis like the Senpou Assassin (aka Rappa). Since they were not seen serving anyone else other then Isshin and Genichiro, which leaves me with the only solid conclusion that rather than being mercenaries for hire, they appear to be shinobi that are bushi retainers who specialized in the Ashina style of Ninjutsu-- it was uncommon to find Samurai families/clans that practice their own versions of Shinobi No Jutsu as with their own martial arts and military tactics necessary to succeed in war, which explains how Isshin was able to supplement Ninjutsu covert tactics with his own formidable set of skills--- he also didn’t limit the practice of it to just himself, but also had several of his samurai train in it to make them efficient commando-spies for spying and intelligence gathering.
Another theory suggested by MisterAssassin is that Isshin once at some point in the past hired Owl to selectively train some of his most loyal retainers in the art of Ninjutsu which would explain how the Nightjar Shinobi are wearing bird-themed masks and feathered dress coats and noticeably utilized aerial attacks much like he does due to being trained under him. Along the way Isshin himself eventually picked up on its tactics and strategies to compliment his own.
Before anyone asks about the Nightjar Shinobi with red eyes though, this post here by Nuffly raise intriguing questions, but dankslayer_orstein's response in particular makes the most plausible sense.
-Interior Ministry Shinobi (aka the Purple Ninjas): These are probably the highest-ranking and most royal Shinobi in the world of Sekiro and in the game’s lore, they are implied to be the Shogunate’s special forces. These guys are undoubtedly suppose to be Sekiro’s interpretation of the famous Iga and Koka (today’s modern spelling of the word is Koga) clan who were highly known for their expertise in Ninjutsu. In the real Sengoku Period history, Tokugawa Ieyasu did indeed have a dedicated special forces of shinobi from Iga and Koka--- Daimyos from across also the country have also been known to employ Shinobi as their special forces soldiers and spies from both the low ranks and high ranks (and sometimes they didn’t have to be from Iga and/or Koka), the most notable warlords ones who utilized such strategies to their advantage was Takeda Shingen and Date Masamune.
Little do people realize however is that, they were NOT simply peasant farmers who trained far away in a secret village or some sorts to take up arms against the Samurai as commonly believed. What’s going to be shocking to most is that in reality, Iga and Koka was a land of regions and provinces prosperously guarded by bushi families/clans who raised their warriors into becoming Shinobi full time, as a result their Samurai possessed a specialized talent in covert ops and warfare. The Men of Iga and Koka were often described to be Jizamurai (meaning Samurai of the Land), meaning they were a baron house of independent Samurai families/clans who were wealthy enough to own a substantial amount of land and govern their regions without a daimyo similar to that of medieval yeoman in England. Some of these Iga and Koka no-Mono Samurai also made a living off of farming as a side job which allowed them to make twice the income. In fact there were samurai from across Japan at the time besides Iga and Koka who were farmers as explained by AsiaExpert here.
And because of that complex blurred line, it is almost easy to see how the misconception arises that ninja were low-class farmers that were in constant conflict with the high-class samurai of nobility then its idea was later reinforced by pop-culture and some modern historians who completely gloss over the Iga and Koka clan’s Samurai backgrounds. Before the destruction of Iga in the 1581 from the hands of Oda Nobunaga and surrender of Koka. Iga and Koka were a very powerful Jizamurai families/clans who for the longest time having been independent from daimyo rule, but eventually would lose most of that independence over time from their conflicts with warlords like Oda Nobunaga. So in conclusion the enemy of the Samurai was NOT the Ninja, they were other enemy Samurai--- it just so happens that Nobunaga's army happen to fight accomplished Iga and Koka Samurai who were coincidentally skilled in Shinobi No Jutsu.
Brylock1’s excellently condensed and write up here briefly touches on this. In addition, underneath his comment is also my add on comment which brings up accounts of bushi warriors employing tactics of deception and even disguise and infiltration to sneak into enemy’s homes to assassinate them. This further solidifies that Shinobi and Samurai do not contradict each other ever historically despite popular belief.
Although Iga and Koka were known for their Samurai being proficient in Ninjutsu, they were fortunately not the only ones that exclusively employed special warfare and espionage tactics to their advantage in the Sengoku Period (which I will get to in a moment). But it just so happens that the men of Iga and Koka were the most skilled practitioners of Ninjutsu as it was the birthplaces of where its arts were perfected, its why most of the best Shinobi come from those regions and provinces. Their skill and reputation proceeds them, its why almost many daimyo from across Japan wish to make the ones who went out and offered their services, their retainers and footsoldiers alike as insightfully said here by Shinkirou.
-Lady Butterfly (aka Coolest Ninja Grandma): Now we reach Lady Butterfly, her historical counterpart is both a fascinating, but unfortunate disappointing reality. There was definitely records of women being employed as female covert agents. However these women agents recruited from the noble classes or prostitute houses, their main objective was to not only to spy on the enemy (as every Shinobi is suppose to do rather then fighting), but to also take advantage of their sex appeal to seduce and charm men into making love with them and eventually get them to spill about valuable information that they otherwise would not tell anyone else other than their allies. This than allows the Kunoichi to pass off that sensitive information to the daimyo she pledged her allegiance to. Other times they will wait until everyone in the castle enemy is asleep, the Kunoichi would get up in the middle of the night to open up the castle defenses making it easier for Shinobi to infiltrate castles or to successfully carry out swift night raid attacks with Samurai forces backing them up.
It is unknown at the moment if there were ever female ninjas recruited that knew how to fight. But considering there were some women like the Onna-Bugeisha (aka the female Samurai) who fought alongside men in war that knew how to fight, its quite a possibility. But for the time being, there is no recording of them that is found at this time.
Regards to Owl, Sekiro and Isshin
Now lets talk about Owl, Isshin and Sekiro himself. As they blur the line between Bushi and Shinobi on full display more or so than any other portrayal of Ninja in the game. Not to mention the fact that Sekiro and Owl also have something interesting going for them that I wished to bring forth knowledge about that I never actually talked about in my previous posts.
All three of them can easily slide into the the second criteria of Shinobi described by Dr. Stephen Turnbull here in his The Ninja: An Invented Tradition? thesis paper and snippet of his Ninja: Unmasking the Myth (here) book. Earlier I stressed that Iga and Koka were highly regarded for their practice of Ninjutsu and how their Shinobi No Jutsu skills is far from being exclusively practiced by them only. And as you can see here, we have documented records of secret and undercover warfare also being conducted by highly skilled individuals or elite military corps of samurai and soldiers specializing in covert espionage, reconnaissance, sabotage, assassination, guerrilla tactics and asymmetrical warfare who had no ties with Iga and Koka. Therefore it is not uncommon to believe that most if not all Samurai families/clans practiced their own version of Ninjutsu and were often very good at it. Whether they are from Iga or Koka, or what not. Having a warrior with skills in clandestine tactics for that little extra advantage, he can guarantee himself employment from many daimyo from across Japan who outta want to employ him as their samurai retainer or ashigaru footsoldier.
Men of Owl, Sekiro and Isshin’s caliber could be broken down into three categories of bushi warriors with these peculiar set of skills in Ninjutsu, because of where they came from and how they achieved their rank and status of Samurai, places each of them in rather unique circumstances and positions that for the most part actually happened in the real life Sengoku Jidai history.
Owl: MisterAssassin purposed a theory that he was once a vassal to a powerful Samurai family/clan before eventually resigning from his role, becoming a Ronin in pursuit for more power and immortality cause he was an ambitious man (and he would certainly be a Ronin because he does not have a clan to call his own)... Considering that the Owl had time to hone his skills in combat and infiltration for the battlefield and covert missions before his departure. It only makes sense that he is very much likely a well-trained Ronin equipped with Shinobi No Jutsu skills, able to pass down his teachings to Sekiro, still making molding him into an effective warrior and spy with that battle-hardened experience at hand. And that necessary training allowed Sekiro to take on much more experienced Samurai and Ninja.
Sekiro: What really caught my attention about the Wolf himself is that he was not born into a Samurai family/clan, but yet was highly-skilled and professionally trained enough to be entrusted into becoming the personal bodyguard and retainer of the Divine Heir. He was chosen for his particular set of skills that would make him the ideal warrior, spy and assassin to protect Kuro...
Before Toyotomi Hideoyoshi and Tokugawa Ieyasu strictly made the rank and status of Samurai a hereditary title only. The Owl and Sekiro exemplified what was a common occurrence in the Sengoku Period of this time. Social mobility: Even when not born into a Samurai family/clan, many peasants, footsoldiers or lower-class people in general had the opportunity to distinguish themselves, if they remained loyal to the daimyo, surviving enough battles or performing exceptional deeds, they will be promoted to rise up in the ranks to be apart of the bushi class.
So whether Owl and Sekiro were born into a Samurai family/clan or not, they achieved their rank and status of Samurai not by hereditary family ties, but through sheer hard work and pure skill. Further blurring the line between Samurai and Ninja, because even the Shinobi who do not belong to the Samurai class still had the chance to rise through the social class system and become one.
Reminder that Genichiro was originally born a peasant, but then was adopted into Ashina clan became a high-ranking samurai and daimyo. It was uncommon for Samurai families/clans from before the Edo Period to adopt people from various social classes who were not born into the bushi warrior caste from birth and make them into samurai.
Toyotomi Hideoyoshi was the most famous historical example of this period’s social hierarchy in action. Originally born a peasant farmer, but eventually joining Oda Nobunaga’s army as an ashigaru before finally rising through the ranks of the social class becoming a samurai to daimyo. Sengoku warlords did not care if you came from a Samurai family/clan or not, if you had the skill or resolve to be a good soldier--- he would want to make you his Samurai retainer or Ashigaru footsoldier.
Isshin: Not much to add from here as it as what I wanted to say about Isshin is reminiscent to what I have already covered on my Nightjar Shinobi tab. It was uncommon to find Samurai families/clans that practiced their own version of Ninjutsu or another possibility is that Isshin previously hired Owl to instruct some of his most loyal retainers in Shinobi No Jutsu, both of these scenarios can explain how Isshin was able pick up on Ninjutsu to have compliment with his Samurai martial arts and training.
And because the skillset of a Samurai-Ninja hybrid varies, you might have a Bushi-Shinobi that is really good at using a Katana to one that is an expert at using a Yari or Naginata, others might be superb marksman with a Yumi (bow) or Teppo (musket) and sometimes they could also be survival experts or are skilled at naval espionage etc---
Shinobi of the Dark and Light
Probably one of the least talked about, but very intriguing aspect about the Shinobi is the classification of dark (in) and light (yo) agents.
Dark Shinobi agents focus on infiltration and assassination, the job of a dark shinobi agent is typically done by low-ranking Ashigaru footsoldiers. And because the education of an Ashigaru tends to vary, more focus was put on trying to discipline them into being a good soldier.
Light Shinobi agents focus on disguise and intelligence-gathering, this role is mostly fulfilled by high-ranking Samurai warriors, but that is not to say that Ashigaru can’t do spywork. But when a task requires more then just spying and need to have their enemies be studied from their inside and out, a Samurai can use their education and literacy to his advantage to understand the customs and mannerisms of every social class thus allowing them to blend in and do espionage works right under the enemy’s noses--- sometimes the role of a Light Shinobi agent can be tasked to a farmer, artisan, merchant and commoner, but they are lower in status and are not trained for combat like a full-fledged Light Shinobi of high-ranking Samurai status.
Sometimes the two roles can overlap with one another however as it is still possible for an Ashigaru to get the same education as a regular Samurai if he can afford it, allowing him to do a light-agent’s job. A dark shinobi agent of high bushi status would undoubtedly be just as good if not better then his Ashigaru counterpart, they would be highly capable of making acts of sabotage and assassinations look like a complete accident or homicide. Hattori Hanzo, a real life Samurai and Ninja--- was so good and experienced at doing both roles as a dark and light shinobi agent that he ended becoming the spymaster who commanded both dark and light shinobi agents.
We see the roles of a dark and light Shinobi agent represented to some capacity in the game. Owl and Sekiro are easily classified as dark shinobi agents because they spend most of their time in the shadows and assassinating key targets, very few people ever live to tell the tale about them because they often leave no witnesses.
Not surprisingly there is no true representation of a light-shinobi agent in this game and lets face it, no one wants to spend almost the entire game just spying on the enemy and such. It can be pretty boring from a gameplay design and standpoint.
The closest character to that comes close to the light Shinobi agent’s representation is Isshin as he under the guise of his Tengu of Ashina persona he is able to slip around corners and gather information on the Interior Ministry’s whereabouts on what they are up to without anyone ever figuring out who he was except for Sekiro (and he intentionally allowed him to know too since Isshin seems to highly trust Sekiro to keep his secret), but because he also spends time a lot of his time in the shadows and assassinating many hired Senpou Assassins and key members of the Interior Ministry. Isshin just like Hanzo would be be a cross between a dark and light Shinobi agent.
The Warfare and Tactics of the Shinobi
Now lets get to the warfare and tactics cause this game definitely nailed many historical aspects of the Shinobi right. A great blend between the rule of cool from fiction and historical realism. Some of these highlights include, but not limited to:
-Stealth: You cannot do a true authentic Ninja game without first getting the stealth aspects right. Especially the four core Shinobi skills which include...
Shinobi-iri - The Art of Stealth and Infiltration
Hensōjutsu- The Art of Disguise and Impersonation
Chōhō- The Art of Espionage
Intonjutsu- The Art of Escaping and Concealment
In the game, you are given multiple options as to how you want to slip past enemies in dangerous areas and escape out of dire situations. There is no particular correct way to do it, every approach you take is unique which makes one’s playthrough vastly different than the other. This is perfect.
-Eavesdropping: I had previously stressed about this before I’ll speak of it again. Although the inclusion of this mechanic is rather minor, it significantly enhances my enjoyment of the game for me as a history enthusiast. Not only was this great for gaining knowledge of Sekiro’s world-building and for deciphering key enemy weaknesses, but also it represents how Shinobi perform tasks of intelligence-gathering. Finally a Shinobi that doesn’t charge headstrong into situations and start huge fights instead this one is calculative and was all about studying one’s foe then once a weakness is exploited which he can then use that to his advantage because they are spies first, warriors second. What makes a Shinobi truly deadly is that he doesn’t have to be a physical threat in order to be able to destroy you, instead its a matter of how much he can learn valuable information about you in a span of a days or months then turn those disadvantages against you so that he may win.
-Mibu Underwater Breathing Technique: In the game, the Wolf was given the ability to swim and breath underwater. There is actually quite a bit of historical truth to this one surprisingly enough as back in the day, it was recommended for both Samurai and Shinobi alike to be good swimmers and practice sea warfare tactics. By doing so, they can use the waters to conceal themselves in the depths of water from enemy sight as being a good swimmer also meant they had strong lungs to hold their breath to hide beneath the water for an extended period time before needing to get back up for air and other times, they can be used as one of the many possible places you can hide in for ambush tactics.
-Ninjutsu Puppeteer Art: A Ninjutsu art that allows Sekiro to mind control an enemy into attack their own allies, causing chaos and confusion in midst of all of that--- he can exploit that window of opportunity to attack or stealth kill his distracted adversaries. It closely mirrors an actual warfare tactic used by high-ranking Samurai and low-ranking Ashigaru shinobi agents working in coordination with one another where they disguise themselves as enemy troops heading off to fight their allies and in the midst of the fighting, the shinobi would then start attacking and killing the enemy troops causing a massive amount of chaos and confusion to the point where the enemy cannot distinguish between friend or foe which results in them instead killing each other.
-Psychological Manipulation: Probably the second greatest weapon in a Shinobi’s arsenal besides his intelligence-gathering is his ability to manipulate you from being one of the most loyal soldiers and retainers to a backstabbing bastard by using the right words to make you give into temptations that you otherwise wouldn’t have given into before. A Ninja doesn’t have to be a physical threat in order to harm you. We do see some of this psychological manipulation tactic applied to some capacity from the Owl as he uses the Iron Code as a way to manipulate Sekiro’s trust and loyalty in hopes he will turn against Kuro.
-In regards to fighting styles: One of the most common mistakes people often make including I myself did once was being the under belief that Ninjutsu was a unique systematized combat style used by Ninjas. There is actually no physical evidence to support that this is the case, not even in the surviving Shinobi war manuals like the Bansenshukai, Shoninki, Gunpo Jiyoshu and Shinobi Hidan mention such a thing. The Bansenshukai does mention recommendation for Shinobi to study Kenjutsu and Jujutsu, but does not specify where they should learn it, which leaves it open for the Shinobi in question to study whichever fighting style that suits him best. This quote by Antony Cummin sums it up the best...
“One fundamental mistake most people make when reading shinobi texts is that they class the translations as a full curriculum, a complete set of skills. In one respect this is true, that is the translations are full shinobi skill sets, but those writing these manuals and carrying out these tasks had other set of skills as well. These shinobi were a part of a warrior culture and you should understand that the skills of a ninja is an add on, used to enhance a warrior’s already formidable skill-set. In the Sengoku Period - the time where these arts were perfected - a samurai would be a proficient fighter, horseman and sometimes a war master, but more than all these things such as swordsmanship, archery, swimming, sea warfare, survival techniques, they had shinobi no jutsu for these special needs - making them warriors with that little extra, exceptional advantage, an advantage that could almost guarantee employment and was kept close and secret.”
-Antony Cummins
Source: Iga and Koka Ninja Skills: The Secret Shinobi Scrolls of Chikamatsu Shigenori
If there is anything to take away from this quote it is that Ninjutsu is a supplementary set of skills of survival and espionage meant to compliment with your own already extraordinary talents as the focus of Shinobi No Jutsu was mainly used for spying and intelligence-gathering rather then combat. So meaning if a farmer, merchant, artisan and commoner were to try and practice Ninjutsu on its own without any martial arts training, they will be a very good spy who can gather information on the enemy for the daimyo they are loyal to without getting caught, but they will NOT be a trained warrior. However if a Samurai or Ashigaru who are already skilled at martial arts at like say their own style of Jujutsu, Kenjutsu and Sojutsu (the way of the spear), but practiced Ninjutsu then they will not only be an excellent spy-- But also a formidable fighter. This is how it works.
So in other words, if we were to realistically talk about Owl and Sekiro’s combat styles in the game. Owl simply learned a style of Kenjutsu from an unknown Samurai school or master then turned it into his own fighting style afterwards passed down what he was taught to Sekiro who then also went on to personalize his own fighting style. It was uncommon to find Sengoku Samurai of this time to modify or mix and match their fighting styles with other fighting methods/techniques to create a personalized efficient fighting style that best suits them. Sekiro is the best example of this as he uses almost the exact same combat arts as many of the bosses and mini-bosses in this game like for the example the Ashina Cross and One Mind, just to name a few.
Although ambiguous, it seems pretty evident this is the case as it never makes a big deal out of Owl and Sekiro’s fighting styles that it is completely unique and different from Samurai in the game (other then being able to pull off feats with superhuman agility that I don’t recall any ordinary Samurai being able to do and since Sekiro is still a fantasy game mixed with historical elements that’s okay) as there is nothing stealthy about their fighting style like at all. So I am thrilled to see that Miyzaki and his team at Fromsoftware understand that a Shinobi’s priority is being a spy rather then fighting which is why they do not have their own unique fighting style.
And if the Shinobi in question is a Samurai himself or a Ninjutsu practitioner that is trained by a Bushi warrior---they would logically use the exact same fighting style as every other Samurai of the time, only difference would be their fighting stance and application of technique depending on the Samurai school/master they studied under.
This lines up with Miyzaki’s previous interview where he said the Wolf is a Shinobi who adopts and uses every method possible that is effective to complete his mission.
Conclusion
Miyazaki and Fromsoftware have really went the extra mile in not only creating their own unique and artistic vision of the Samurai and Shinobi, but also challenging the misconceptions that audiences often have about these two figureheads in Japanese history. They crafted an interpretation of their Samurai and Shinobi that is subversively consistent and overall faithful to their historical versions.
And with this new broader and nuanced understanding of who the Shinobi were as well as where some of these misconceptions originated from. You will always go on to passed down what you learned from this post my fellow Sekiro fans. And this was all based my sophisticated research and logistical thinking.
Thank You and I hope you enjoyed this long-awaited post! : )
Cited Sources for my consolidated academic information on the Shinobi:
For information on the realistic military tactics and tools used by Shinobi in the Onin War to Sengoku Period, which were recorded between the time of the Sengoku Jidai to the peaceful times in the Edo Period ... These three books (technically four as one of the books combines two of them into one) translated by Antony Cummins, Yoshie Minami and the Historical Ninjutsu Research Team (having both native English and Japanese speakers on the team) is your best bet...

>**What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.**

* I plan on using this pc for an oculus rift which I have yet to use since I have nothing which can run it. Also, I would like to be able to play onine games such as Overeatch and rocket league.

>**What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?**

* My max budget for the original build would be between $1,000-$1,500. I would eventually like to be able to upgrade different parts as I have time to save.

>**When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.**

* Hopefully within about two months I should have the capital to complete this purchase.

>**What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ToweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc\)**

* All of the above. Haven't had a pc since we had a Windows 98 running in my house as a kid.

>**Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?**

* U.S. New Mexico, No.

>**If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.**

* I have a portable mouse. Microsoft wireless mobile mouse 3500. No other parts.

>**Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?**

* Probably not unless I got seriously into streaming or competetive online gaming.

>**Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)**

* No

>**Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?**

* My favorite color is steel blue but that is unnecessary and comes last to everything else.

>**Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?**

* Yes, and no, whatever the best OS is.

>**Extra info or particulars:**

* I would prefer that this build is easy to upgrade so that I may continue to add to it as I slowly save money.

2019.04.24 18:49 kj93 Negi might've been hinting that Nino's the bride from more than 2 years ago to this day


https://preview.redd.it/6n1it62mp8u21.png?width=610&format=png&auto=webp&s=ea470f4fac797196b42361a875cafacd88da0279

The first ever 5toubun related content revealed to the public was a Nino 'crop' by Negi on his Twitter account. Although it's not meaningful, I'll summarize some hints I remember that foreshadow a Nino end.


There's more minor stuff but I think these hints are the most remarkable. Also, Nino's character development is surrounded by parallels. And there's more that can be used in the story, like this one.
At the end of the day, all these things could not mean anything, but it's also true that Negi's been dropping hints since the very beginning to this day. He could've stopped at some point but he didn't.

But above all, the strongest evidence for Nino's case is how her character's connected with the "forget the past, embrace the future" message, which is something that could foreshadow Fuutarou's romantic development (Child Rena, past love - Nino, future love) later on. In fact, as stated above, it was already hinted with the charm's symbology.
Another strong argument is Nino being the girl who confronts her father's view the most which will be of importance later on since Maruo's absolutely opposed to the thought of Fuutarou dating one of his daughters. These two points are basically exclusive to only Nino.

In my opinion, as of now, a Nino end would be the most compelling and satisfying outcome this story could offer from a storyteliing perspective. Especially because the story is ending soon and she's the most developed girl so far.
To see more about Nino's character, this is a great post by u/anthony2845 about Nino's gradual love for Fuutarou. I aslo made a post three days ago about why I think Nino's the most likely candidate of being the kisser. Thanks for reading.

Edit 1 and 3: Thanks to the 2 redditors who gave this post a silver award!
Edit 2: Another thanks to u/anakkcii for compiling all those amazing parallels! Great stuff! Original source: 1, 2 and 3.
