Am I the only one who thought those Weaponized Monks were dogs until I zoomed in on one?

Am I the only one who thought those Weaponized Monks were dogs until I zoomed in on one?

clithyak

And this is why Dallis die in all of my playthrough


freedfg

There is no reality that Dallas, Lucian, and Alexander are the good guys, Divinity really doesn't have any good guys. Besides buddy. And if they can be trusted, the voidwoken ironically.


DTopping80

And those three aren’t even the biggest villain of all. The biggest villain is the bum in Driftwood who put that spiked collar on his pooch and caused him pain. Fuck that guy.


shaboogie-bop

Agreed. Fuck that guy.


SevenHaeven

You know, my Tentacle Lash might do just that.


SixStringerSoldier

Did you know that you can turn that guy inside out? Then bring his writhing remains back to life and incinerate them:)


joosh82

Go on...


Mauvai

How??


PitiRR

Pet Pal


Mauvai

I always have pet pal but I've never had a dialogue option with the dog that led anywhere?


Yagdraa

There is a greater evil in Driftwood. "SMELLS WORSE OVER HERE THAN..."


aahxzen

THEN DON'T COME OVER !!!


Wiplazh

Yer saef amung frends, neur forgetti


Opuspace

Glad I'm not the only one who plotted out how to murder him so he couldn't hurt the dog anymore.


RSUltraNick

I made a Deal with the doctor demon I did regret it pretty Hard in the end xD


clithyak

I hope that giving the source to Lucian is not the canon ending. I understand their goal, but none of it excuse their way of doing it.


Firewynn

If you played the older games you would know that Giving the source to Lucien is the canon ending. He also erases everyone that isnt Human from existence according to the DLC of Ego Draconis on 360.


DNGRDINGO

>He also erases everyone that isnt Human from existence JFC what?? Lucien is pure evil.


Firewynn

MAY CONTAIN 20 YEAR OLD SPOILERS ​ ​ >!You would have to play the other ones honestly, id Agree. But he is more like Thanos in a sense. The other races kept murdering each other and summoning void cratures to win their wars which turned areas in to literal plague lands were noone could live except goblin looking things.... So he erased them all from existence with his dragon knight squads. Adopted the Anti-Christ (on accident) Some Dragon Rider Necromancer taught his adopted sun to use his anti-christ powers, Lucien then destroys all the dragon knights except 1 who is a Seeker (his private dragon knight hunting squad) she turns the MC into a dragon knight, you kill the anti christ, meet lucien, and find out that it was completely necessary to end all the other creatures as only they could summon from the void, while humans couldn't besides a select few, who all died in Divinity 2? i believe... fun story. Honestly Ego Draconis ended on a cliff hanger with the DLC as the MC kinda gets corrupted by Damien (the anti christ adopted son of Lucien) and we never really finish his story line. So if they do make part 3 it should honestly take place after that time.!< >!You actually use Lucien in Divine Divinity and, learn about Damien being secretly the anti christ in Beyond Divinity (the second game). In divinity original sin 1 you are actually doing his bidding in a way, when you find all the races to make gods, it is to split his power because he believes being omnipotent isnt the way to go, In Original Sin 2 canon ending you find out all those races he made have gods are corrupted as fuck, In Divinity 2 you fight Damien, he goes into what is basically the life stream in FF7, then you fight the Fake Dragon Knight/Necromamcer/Human Avatar of Samuel (Satan) and Head of the Black Ring, Ygerna soul binds herself to Damien to help him come back and fully embrace being the true Body of the Devil, and you kill her in DLC, Flames of Vengeance, they mention Damien is going full devil and will return in a few years, since you killed her he is now able to actually die (only able to kill her cause Lucien gave of god hood to sever her immortality). AND THEY NEVER FINISH THE STORY.!< >!Dragon Commander is before Ego Draconis and after Beyond Divinity (its an okay game, not really an RPG more policital style map gaming) and Larian Announced a Sequel to OS2 called Fallen Heroes that is a direct Sequel, so we still wont get a real ending any time soon.!<


SoSeriousAndDeep

Fallen Heroes is in limbo at the moment, at least until after they finish BG3.


basicallyDe4D

Wasn't Dragon Commander set far in the past? Even before OS1?


Firewynn

OH you are right. I always think it was before EG2 because its the same dragon you get the power of in the tower at the halfway point lol


darthvall

Just yesterday I learned that Divinity universe is not limited to both original sin and Lucian is one of the hero in one of the previous games lol. That's quite surprising for me.


Firewynn

>Just yesterday I learned that Divinity universe is not limited to both original sin and Lucian is one of the hero in one of the previous games lol. That's quite Hes not really the hero... hes the god of them lmao but ya


pvrhye

Yeah, I can't imagine anyone siding with them if not for curiosity or the achievement. They're transparently irredeemable. I'd almost sooner side with the God King or the Doctor.


Lyndis-of-Pherae

I don't get how Lucian goes from being a decent guy in the older games to an utter cunt in DOS:2. I guess that war with Damian really fucked his head huh.


Nytemare3701

Isn't the original sin series a prequel series?


basicallyDe4D

I mean...Lucian did decapitate the lover of his 15 year old adopted son right in front of the kid before that war. Sure, she was a Black Ring but uh, he's totally capable of sealing someone away with Divine powers.


Korayzzz

>Divinity really doesn't have any good guys. i am


Bragunetzki

It honestly amazes me how dark this game gets at times despite its colourful exterior


Mr_Ivysaur

I kind enjoy the idea of extremely violent games as long the whole thematic is not about the violence itself. Team Fortress 2, Half Life, Divinity. Even Bioshok Infinity (which I'm not a big fan, but its violent as well). All colorful and crazy violent games that you even forgot how violent they are. There is more examples obviously, but I forgot.


satanfurry

Borderlands while it is more centred around it still has a very colourful exterior also rage 2


Feuershark

Borderlands plays on the crazy and wacky, without color it would like an asylum


poenani

Great Violent games where the theme revolves around violence imo are Doom and Gears of War


Wiplazh

I'd put Warcraft in there. Always been goofy and colorful games, but take a closer look and you notice a lot of gore and other dark shit.


garlic_naaaannn

Yeah DOS 1 was so much more silly, I much prefer the darker tone of the second game


aaeiou90

It is silly, until you encounter Imps in Hiberheim.


CousinMabel

What is special about them? I can't find any details online.


aaeiou90

Immaculates slaughter them to make bloodstones. It's basically a genocide. Also, immaculates have a prison in Sacred Stone where they keep people who they're about to slaughter to make bloodstones. Including an orc who has been in this prison since early childhood. Also, Hunter's Edge.


TomatoOrangeMelon

I have the opposite opinion. I like fluffy fantasies.


Opuspace

They weren't pulling punches when they permanently killed off whoever you didn't have on your team. And they keep punching in little ways. Oh, we managed to save an egg for the chickens? They're all dead now!


-SidSilver-

Yeah, it's totally a mess.


ElectronicSupport555

Yeah... Dalis has some fu**up mind if you ask me


Palarva

Nope ... every time I zoomed in too much in this game, my innocence died in a way or another.


wdt888

You're not the only one. I used to call them robo-dogs before I realized they were kinda human.


Due_Echidna_6353

Dallis is basically a mixture of Cersei Lannister and Ramsay Bolton, wish we could do worse than just killing her.


Zenebatos1

mixed with some Frankenstein shit, yeah its pretty much it


gyrowze

Well she also helps save the world.


Matrillik

Cersei has the Frankenstein shit covered

Beep. Boop. I'm a robot. Here's a copy of ###[Frankenstein](https://snewd.com/ebooks/frankenstein/) Was I a good bot? | [info](https://www.reddit.com/user/Reddit-Book-Bot/) | [More Books](https://old.reddit.com/user/Reddit-Book-Bot/comments/i15x1d/full_list_of_books_and_commands/)


ShadowtheRonin

Please tell me I can bloated corpse her then have my bone widow eat her remains and then destroy her soul. Not even source vampirism just Purge it. I don't want her soul in me. She's like Kniles the Flenser, but he was insane, or at least deranged. She *knows* what she's doing.


ESOn00b

She's also a dragon, wth...


Due_Echidna_6353

Who’s a dragon, dallis? Well we can bring her draconic form out as permanent punishment.


Feuershark

when I read the name I immediately zoomed in


Salazryn

AH! I’ve never zoomed in before. Holy shit.


pinkythepink

I was playing with my brothers and zoomed in. I said, "I'm worried about the artists." When they asked why I pointed them towards the monks and they were like, "the dog things?" And I was like, "yes, except they're people." They also became concerned.


somethingmoronic

Wait... those were monks?


angry_lander

Its in the name


somethingmoronic

That was meant to be a joke. I didn't really pay attention and killed them without thinking though to be honest.


Zenebatos1

I know, i was also fucking surprised by that


KasztanekChaosu

Great post :) I was amazed when I saw that, also thought they were dogs. I can see a lot of people in the thread also didn't realize.


tiny_smile_bot

>:) :)


soundsdistilled

Good bot! :)


possibly_not_a_bot

Good human <3


deliriumduchess

You can examine them in the blackpits and the narrator gives a pretty horrifying description of them. Yeesh. Straight nightmare fuel.


ultimatedray15

Oh holy mother of Christ that's fucking brütal


IBlackKiteI

That's why I thought the attempts every now and then to show the Magisters more sympathetically fell totally flat. If you don't immediately have an 'are we the baddies?' moment and desert as soon as you see these things in your army (let alone shriekers or silent monks, any Mag grunt would've seen those) you deserve to get your soul exploded.


Charles_and_Nini

Yeah? Like I get that the GOAL behind it was good but the use of the monks, the shriekers, weaponising. They weren't necessary. There's no way that we're "the bad guy" because your quad-trio-duo-one never does ANYTHING as horrifying as ripping the source out of the monks, turning them into horrifying creatures capable of murder. Like yeah you can consume souls, kill the innocent.


Marplaar

I have completed every achievement in this game. Spent over a hundred hours in this shit. I never flipping knew this. Thought they were dogs.


Eager_FireFace

Those clowns making these: https://youtu.be/ir7wuZsMWQ0


Simwill_

Yoo it’s OSP I love those guys


shortbusmafia

Wait, they’re not dogs?


chicken-popJM

I always thought they were super fucked up monks, but when I zoomed in I got disappointed and glad at the same time it wasn't as fucked up as I thought


Furaxli

Wait, you were expecting something more fucked up than that?


Furaxli

Actually Shriekers are more fucked up.


chicken-popJM

Yeah, with all the stuff you find in fort joy, I thought I was looking at some Cronenberg monk-monster smashed into a metal dog skeleton. Turns out is just a monk with legs cut off and metal piercing his body. Still fucked up tho.


SpooderRain

I have never seen that they have faces... This is pretty "40k" level of dark


svhons

Imo, key artwork for Black Ring is i think more fucked up. You can google it; the one where the Black Ring guy holding up a human slave like its a pet; first time i saw it, it was so horrifying to me


jaghataikhan

Is this it? https://www.creativeuncut.com/gallery-31/dos2-black-ring-armor.html


GrumpyImmortal

Now i hate the magisters even more thx.


Sareneia

Okay, so look. I never zoomed in and I thought they were dogs too. But I also thought they were just people who could shapeshift into dogs since they were called monks, so at least that's better?


Furaxli

I don't know if shapeshifting into dogs is better than being tortured and having your feet cut off whilst wearing a spikey armor and a metallic dog collar.


Gandalf_TheGey

I mean, it's called a "weaponized monk".


freedfg

Yeah the name pretty much describes exactly what they are.


achipinthesugar

OH!


Desperate_Beautiful1

Woa


Neutral_Tired

I only figured it out after I paid proper attention to the name


RoboCobb

Til I learned they aren’t dogs


Nonatrien

No way


Steelblood27

Yes! Omg that was soo disturbing when i noticed


Delicious-Fix-2752

Oh good lord why have i never noticed this and why have I noticed this now?


sincleave

Making them look and move like dogs is the cherry on top of the defilement cake.


Marthuzar

Does anyone notice that the monk's scalp is stretched and screwed to the metal bracket like a jaw to look like a beast?


gyst_

Yeah, if you don’t pay attention they 100% look like dogs. You also actively repress the memory until someone brings it back up....


FrogMan241

Yeah I did the same on my playthrough and was pretty yikes'd. And another thing: how the hell do they fly?


rlynotmyotheraccount

No you aren't and now they are even more terrifying


theavariceofman

Fucking yikes. I missed this and I wish I still missed it. Lol


HeWhoHidesInTree

Those... weren’t dogs?....


DinalexisM

"Sacrifices for the greater good"


IlikeJG

Oh wow I thought they were dogs this whole time.


sneppy13

don't worry, it took me two games to figure it out.


Yussuke

They...they arent dogs?!?!?


Fightrr23

I enjoy examining my enemies one by one at the beginning of any battle, or before the battle even began if possible. And when I saw these things at the Lady Vengeance I was like holy shit. Imagine these things were once someone you knew..


ShmuckCanuck

You were not the only one. Freaked me the fuck out when I noticed.


Teb453

Wait is this in Arx?


ultr4violence

Stuff of nightmares


mestrearcano

Same here. This game is pretty grotesque when you zoom in. If I was my character I would be vomiting everywhere, there are several piles of decomposing bodies, just think about the smell.


Kerrberos

TIL


Amiable_Misanthrope1

Oh, look they have battle hounds...cool! \*zooms in\* Oh my God what twisted world have I entered?!?


itsahmemario

Well.... TIL. Also, holleeee shiet, that is messed up.


abnthug

Definitely thought they were dogs too.


GalerionTheAnnoyed

I don't remember these things, everything looks the same when burnt to a crisp.


YuvalAmir

Dude what are the chances?? After **1.7k hours** I noticed this for the first time **last week** and now you are posting this???


le_sack

Oh god. You are not the only one, I can’t unsee this now… those poor b***tards 🥲


bergreen

Uhhhh I thought they were dogs until YOU zoomed in. Like right now. And they're horrible. So TIHI.


Chrisomatic89

I was today years old when I learned this… I am not happier for knowing.


Furaxli

You're welcome for the nightmares.


Rollsach

Oh fuck


Moonlessness

They aren't Dogs ??? Holy !!


venepskeuten

W O T?
