3.0 Sorcery Megathread

So the gist of this is that the secret handshake is real and sorcery will come to CE.
Missy was fine, she blew my mind, I think of this
woman all the time, She was a long cool woman in a black dress.
Keep dreaming. . . . .

33-day event.

33 day like Teph said. But still, your point definitely stands. This is a stage one of something larger. They wouldn’t hype something this small if it were an isolated piece of content, there’s definitely more coming in future to link it all together

Well, if we’re going to continue deeper down the rabbit hole - 33 days - the number three seems prevalent in there, like it’s maybe not a coincidence. (Though I was disappointed to discover there are four obelisks at these events, rather than three - but there are three such events on each map.) To me, what seems like deliberate use of the number three hints at this being part of something larger. Now if only I could come up with something that the number three might be hinting towards… :wink:

Jesus was 33 when he was crucified. Maybe it’s a Mitra thing? :ducks and runs:

A few choice quotes from that, thanks for sharing.

“People are raising the dead, and at the moment you don’t know why” 2:38
“Put a stop to that now before it gets too crazy” 2:50


Definitely hinting at some more coming in, the fact they’re evasive about answering the motives or who the sorcerers are just means there’s more to this story they have yet to reveal.

“The places we put them will generally have something to do with what’s happening when you stumble upon them” 4:25

“A new reason to do events later down the road that we’re not talking about now” 6:15 :eyes:

“We’re making more content, we want more content in the game” 10:55

“Well COUGH I have a prepared statement for this” 16:50 when asked about sorcerers
“We’re looking at more active storytelling in the exiled lands. Anything beyond that you will have to wait and see

“Almost got us” yeah we do Den I know you’re hiding your wizard powers from me but I know they’re real


All in all, sorcery is still my theory and given how they jumped around the answer, my hope is reinforced by the wait and see.

Thank you @Jimbo for the wonderful write up. I am not really into Conan lore, but this was an interesting reading nevertheless. Can’t wait to see how this will transform into the game eventually. Even this small event is a great start. Great job, Funcom!

Only in the gospels. It seems like biblists nowadays agree, that he was most likely somewhere around/past his 60s when the crucifixion occured.

3rd map?

The number 3 is significant in occult. Its the minimal number with power (coven of 3, the Holy Trinity, etc)

Sure, maybe. I was thinking more just a tongue in cheek reference to update 3.0 - which in some sense this is all building towards.

Sure, three has occult significance - but the thing to bear in mind with ‘significant’ numbers - be it 3, 5, 7, 23 - is that the more you look for them, the more you will find them…
