    Seven Tower and Nasod Ruler discussion thread

    In this thread we discuss the Nasod Ruler and Seven Tower mentioned in lore.


    The Nasod Ruler was basically an organization in the past, formed by people who had the agendas of exterminating all of the things which involving Nasods and witch-hunting people possessing knowledge regarding Nasods.

    300 years ago the Nasod Ruler killed Add's whole family because they researched Nasods. I think this organization serves as a plot device to explain the near absence of technologies in the world, despite ancient human civilization was extremely advanced.

    Despite their aim to wipe out anything involving Nasods, the members of Nasod Ruler included experts of Nasod technologies and applications which derived from that root at the first place, they themselves also making use of Nasod technologies extensively, ironically even to a greater extent than the ones persecuted by them.

    That makes them sound very hypocritical, and a big example of double standard considering they themselves were not so different compared to their victims.

    In short Nasod Ruler was like this game's equivalent of Fallout's Brotherhood of Steel.


    Moving on to the Seven Tower.

    The Seven Tower's soonest activities predated the Nasod Ruler and even El Explosion. Seven Tower was an institution of intellects who were known to wield magics and technologies, even technologies involving Nasods without fearing of violating the taboos which later on the Nasod Ruler would enforce. The Seven Tower had both Elrians and Debrians people, which triggered infighting within the institution.

    It was known that the Henir's Cult originated from the ranks of Seven Tower. Originally some researchers conducted an experiment that attempted to gather and using Henir's energy as a way to solve the chronic problem of energy crisis through the means of generating infinite El Energy using Henir's Chaos, which in short resulted in a gateway to Henir's world being opened and caused Henir's Chaos to spill out, corrupting people and causing damages, aka the Contagion of Ganymede version Elsword:

    The Seven Tower later on was also known to have dissolved because of unknown reason. Below is an example which I think sums up what the Seven Tower was about:

    Since some still don't get the idea, try this.

    Build a library, fill it with all human knowledge. You take it elsewhere when you need a book from it, but the book is only a simplified copy. You don't understand the real book, and you don't need to. Nobody takes the real books anywhere because why would you, when there's a whole library there?

    Now that library goes rogue and the maintenance machinery starts killing everyone any-♥♥♥♥ing-where near it. Where the ♥♥♥♥ did they all come from, you swear to god there weren't this many, and there weren't because they're using the library's information to fight their war. The government fights a battle that destroys the planet against these robots and tears apart the library to stop them using it, only to be destroyed in the process. The library is leveled, cast into flames, every book burned and every computer virus-laden.

    Then comes a man who worked there. He talks to the few surviving library workers, assembles their information, and starts rebuilding a city around the library and expanding it as the librarians find little scraps of paper and fragmented bits of files that stuck together just right read something. They rebuild a library from scrap on the ashes of the old. It isn't a shadow on the glory of the old, but it is all they have.

    Then the city turns on itself, kills its master, and the librarians turn to rage. Half of them kill the other half and destroy the remnants of the library because where they're going they won't need science. Everything burns, and the city is left to a scattered few survivors, walls open to the world, with the hungry predators circling.

    The Adeptus Mechanicus is the sole surviving librarian, desperately scrabbling through the ashes of paper and splinters of hard drives for anything to help him and the city he needs to survive just a second longer.
    ...Just replace the Adeptus Mechanicus with Seven Tower and it would still be pretty accurate.


    Your thoughts? Any additional detail you can contribute is appreciated.

    All I know about Seven Tower is that Aisha's family came from there. When the plot moves back to the Henir researchers again, she will undoubtedly get involved.

      You meant Henir fanatics? Henir Cult was just an off-shot of the original Seven Tower, they don't represent that entire organization.
