As the title said, The Trascendent One.
I have beaten the game as a fighter, with low intelligence and wisdom, meaning that 50% of the story was cut off for me.
Now as now i'm playing as a mage, hoping to get 19-20 intelligence and 24 winsom, so that i can unlock all the dialogues.
What i ask is not really a spoiler, i just wanted to tell my theory about The Trascendent One. And i would be glad if you can tell me if i'm close or not to what really is it. *** if i'm totally wrong, don't spoiler too much please ***
So... Trascendent One. The embodiment of TNO's mortality, separated from TNO thanks to Ravel Puzzlewell.
Why is he keep killing TNO? What i think is simply that The Trascendent One developed a self-awareness after being divided from TNO.
So, knowing that it would die if it would merge with TNO, it started to keep killing TNO. So The Trascendent One afterall is only driven by fear, the fear to cease to exist.
And kills TNO in hope to damage his mind until he would be only a useless shell. At that point, TNO won't ever be able to merge with The Trascendent One, so The Trascendent One will be truly immortal, without enemyes.
The Trascendent One aim so is to secure it's immortality as a god of that realm called "fortress of regrets" in the Negative Plane.
That's what i think, more i will discover now playing as a mage, but...am i at least a bit correct?
