obviously not for any reason of political sympathy, but René Arnoux has definitely been my favorite minor character in disco elysium so far

my first run of disco elysium is as an art communist so I’m basically roleplaying as Guy Debord right now

"What are the stars but points in the body of God where we insert the healing needles of our terror and longing?"

the stars arent stars they're the holes angels left when they entered the material illusion. the light you're seeing are a dozen dozen glimpses of Plemora

the heart of the Void Corps project is that theres nothing i hate more than space and theres nothing i hate more than overwrought hard sci fi so instead we have planets that dont work as planets that are actually big angels and you travel between them by praying very hard

the protagonists of whatever this will end up being are part of the Void Corps, a hastily formed interplanetary organization established between the outer planets, several of which are part of a lower phase socialist federation, and the roman empire analogue, who had just been to war with the former, tasked with scrambling to deal with the aftermath of the death of god

anyways, the actual premise is that each planet is the slumbering body of an Archon, and the sun is a demiurge whose fading light is starving the fundamental separation between the illusion of material reality and the divine ephemera neatly layered above. untethered angels whispering divine truths, archons waking back up, humans getting lost on the way to work and winding up in the infinite ruins of the city of god. etc

the idea is that it's a world confined to a "2D" solar system, with a dying sun suspended above the planets, the cracked husk of the earth at the center, and no rotation. the planets are occupied by different factions roughly corresponding to the state of the Mediterranean in 200AD. i never sorted out exactly which planet goes to who, but Mars and all the inner planets are occupied by a roman empire analogue.

i have a setting ive been working on a while that was supposed to be for a game of Kult i was gonna dm but i think ill just take what i made and work with it on other creative projects because i really do adore every bit of it

youtube.com/watch?v=N7yy5MpftK this is the biggest inspiration for how i describe angels moving in sburgatoria

nothing gets me like secily iopara italian wife

playing SBB makes me crave those shitty walmart frozen bacon egg & cheese biscuit sandwiches & whiskey sours because for weeks the only thing i had on weekends to eat was those, bourbon, and whiskey sour mix & i would play an SBB route every saturday and get trashed

despite it all i really do adore secily there's absolutely no reason to talk about anything like this

The meaningless performance of self-nullifying violence in the service of maintaining the smooth operation of a corporate dictatorship.

*slaps secily on the back* this baby can hold so much Class in it
