I would have never thought that the language of pure image is so hard to understand. We have to think about that in the future...

MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD!

Ascension "Blessing" cutscene
After you got sacrificed by the council of seven your spirit awakes in a divine realms on an altar. Around you the ideas of the seven gods are manifesting. You can roughly separate impish, human, elven or orcish gods...
Everyone of them grabs into their chest and puts a small part of the heart into your weightless shape. After you received all blessing the <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/div.gif" alt="" /> in you is fully developed and so her wings grow and she flies up to the mortal plane where she descends as the reborn hero into the wastelands.

Extro scene
You see the demon of lies dying. In fact you see the mutiliated body of janus ripped into pieces and the leftover, the sword of lies, remains. It comes closer and tries to seduce the hero. The hero is tempted to take it but refuses and sends it back to hell away from the mortal plane.
Then the hero hears the cries of the baby. Knowing that it is the lord of chaos inside the child he/she draws the dagger to kill it. In the hero's moral struggle to kill a neborn innocent child the scene fades out.
Much later you see the hero walk out victorious into the swamp area. He carries something. Loot? The child? You don't know for sure...
Somewhere on a distant hill Arhu and Zandalor watch you coming when suddenly the statue you lifted up in the sky while entering the katacombs of aleroth comes down finally...(side joke, nothing more)

I didn't read this until I finished the game (naturally).
I must say I had serious issues with that statue...
(Glad to know what it means, even if it is nothing more than a joke)
The rest, I was able to figure, although I was a little uncertain if the openness of the ending was intentional. Which I find that it was.

Believe it or not, the ending sort of reminded me of Ghost Busters II. I know, I know <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/offtopic.gif" alt="" /> a bit, but I just gotta say it.

The fact that some 'evil spirit' took over some 'innocent person that everyone trusts' to make it's 'evil master' reborn through a 'wittle baby'... its all the same! Yet very different in story and partial outcome.

Yea, like I said, I just wanted to point that similarity out...

Killerzzz

P.S.: Does anyone els see the similarity? Or am I all alone... <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/puppyeyes.gif" alt="" />
