"What the heck is with Scathach Beach?"

G16 kind of left some plot holes in regards to Scathach Beach. Cichol stated the beach was tainted by the soul stream, however when the player completes G16 we still have a scary beach and monsters?

Could something else have caused the beach to go sour?

What’s your thoughts and speculations?

[ I ask these questions because I like seeing other people’s view on the topics. Lots of you guys out there have very creative minds and amazing head-canons to fill in the holes in Mabinogi’s lore.]]

i always assumed it had something to do with the tory ravine because of that stream/river :V

Like Cichol stated, the corruption of the Soul Stream lead to Scathach’s poisoning. Or at least Scathach’s transformation into a witch. Given the gods’ interaction with the soul stream, and their vendetta against Milletians in general, I actually have a hard time believing it is the Milletians themselves causing it. Maybe it had something to do with Tarlach’s demon powers? Maybe it just so happened he corrupted the soul stream before we see him in G18?

But given the flow of this ‘Dark Erg’ I’m gonna call it, unless it’s called something else, has made its way into Scathach beach, would it stand to reason that the very island of Belvast has some sort of connection to the Soul Stream? Could the island be connected to the gods in someway? Hell if I know. They’ll probably just resurrect Ruairi three more times before we get any definite information.

What interests me the most is the fact that Scathach Beach is open to the public, despite its terrifying wildlife and cursed landscape. Oh, and also the demon possessed witch thingy that turns Tuathas into Sahagins. Yet the area of Tory Ravine is blocked off to the public. This leaves me with two possible conclusions.

1. The area of Tory Ravine is connected to the Soul Stream in such a way that any Tuathas entering it would be killed or wounded on the spot.

2. The area in Tory Ravine is Stained black from the Dark Erg and the wildlife in there is fucking terrifying. I’m talking like, field boss level monsters. Enemies with HP in the six digits. Monsters you’ll need a party to fight just to survive. Either that, or be indestructible.

I’d like to believe that both theories are true, and that Tory Ravine will not only have incredible end-game content, but also further delve into the story of the gods and how the soul stream’s corruption has either stopped or is eating Erinn whole.

But we’ll probably just get some more Millia.

If i remember right, though, the soul stream was initially corrupted thanks to Lugh and Bella’s shenanigans back in G16. (or with glas’s destruction way back in g1) And don’t forget that last cutscene in G12 when we see Cichol returning to Falias and possibly corrupting it?

It was stated that both  Ruairi and Tarlach were drawing their powers from the (already corrupted) soulstream. Tarlach isn’t at fault here.

Also the Milletian didn’t ”fix” the soulstream at the end of G16; Nao stated that only the Gods could, and that they wouldn’t help.

I do also go with the tory ravine theory, because that stream is said to be the source of the beach’s corruption; imagine what would be at its source, then.

I must admit that Saga has brilliant characters and actually a not too bad storyline when you REALLY look at it. However there are a few reasons I don’t like it…

From a storyline perspective we’re able to skip ahead to Saga without running G2 or G3 which means we MAY have gone straight from “Tarlach and Ruairi are the good guys yay~!” to “Tarlach and Ruairi hate everything and want to kill everybody oh no.” Which is confusing as hell to new players. 

Not to mention (Continued if you would care to read…)

The problem with saga is that it is simply too fast-paced, which makes everything look rushed. (ruairi turning millia in because he thought she betrayed him? Hasty, and rather quick to come to conclusions)

And with season two being shorter than it was initially supposed to be, i’m not really having much more hopes for it either.

I mean, we should be happy with what we have, but things could always be better, especially when we are talking about mabinogi here.

I agree I actually had a friend who was new to Mabinogi play through Saga. They said it was fine. I then asked another friend of mine who had played for a few years and they saw so many flaws. The thing is, they tried to add in so many new characters and rushed so much of the story along that we hardly had enough to context to know who was doing what and why. 

My major problem is how much they altered the existing characters without enough explanation. It’s been lore now for so many years that Tarlach can’t leave the druids alter and welp that’s out the window now. They continue to break lore so often it makes me really angry/sad. I love Mabinogi so much for it’s lore, it’s world just feels so real and “legit” and then they pull this shit and suddenly nothing makes sense anymore. They literally explained Tarlach being able to leave as “It’s magic I don’t have to explain shit.” If you think I’m joking reply that episode and watch as Ruairi brings him the magic doughnut and then he’s like “oh look I made a new staff! Tada~! I’m free~!” Ugh…I worry so much about Saga 2.

My hope for Saga 2 is that they don’t ruin the new characters. I’m actually starting to like characters like Merlin and Starlet. Compared to how Mabinogi used to be, things could be much better.

If you don’t mind some spoilers, we actually see very little of starlet, J and chef simple made a cameo. S2 mainly revolves around/with Treasure Hunter and Merlin.

As for the doughnut….. it was somewhat explained that the charm had some kind of power emanating from it (of the shaman magic kind, which was stated to be stronger than normal magic, blablablah), and the staff probably harnesses its power to imitate the altar’s effect on Tarlach (without his staff, Tarlach could probably die in a matter of seconds ?) Though this is simply a supposition from me.

It’s time for the Question of the WeekAnswer the question and supply your IGN/Server for a chance at free NX!

With the recent New Beginnings update, we’ve been wondering, when did you begin your journey on Erinn?

At the time, a friend had talked to me about mabi, since i was looking for a nice MMO to play. I began around the end of the Bard update; there was still that daily event going on for getting the lyre as a prize (even though I didn’t manage to do it thanks to not knowing what it entailed at the time)

If you would have told me i would have invested a lot in that game (see: hours to solely read the wiki among others, multiple alts i work on instead of letting them be mules, etc) I probably wouldn’t have believed it…

Plus mabinogi completely changed my views of what makes a good mmo and what makes it bad (or boring). Mabi’s uniqueness trait simply feels like a basis for what all mmos should have, which, obviously, isn’t the case.

I was thinking about black haired Elves.

If they are practically an omen of doom, then what about Elves with practically white hair, or even pale green or blue?

What if they are considered good luck charms or something?

What if there was a hairarchy among the Elves in Filia depending on the hair color? Black haired Elves treated like shit at the bottom while those with “abnormal” colors like purple and green and blue at the top. And all the freaking Filia guards have red hair so maybe redheads are expected to be a warrior/protector/whatever

um….

yeah it doesn’t make much sense, does it?

Fixed

I could also see giants being similar with their hennas; being distinctions for war actions and such?
