What does Bloodweaver eat?

Post by mouton » Wed Apr 03, 2013 6:58 pm

There is a message that says roughly "Master Control has finished feeding. There is thousands of bodies to bury." Apparently, he doesn't just munch whole creatures. What does he eat, then? Minds? Souls? Blood? Fingertips?

So, it's like a mix of soul and blood. Noice.

He eats the spirit of the players who try so hard to beat the game. The corpses left behind are the multitude of dead characters that we were unable to guide to victory.

Most Suul'ka have moved beyond consuming matter and instead use their psionic powers to absorb energy from living things, leeching it out of them and leaving them dead, frozen husks.

Are there any other messages, creature or item descriptions that mention the Suul'ka feed on souls/consciousness?

The Bloodweaver is a Suul'ka, and is often referred to as Master Control in the game.

There is at least one message- it which references a need for service bots to clean up the surface of the planet after Master Control had a snack.

The Suul'ka are also extensively discussed in the Lore section of the Forums for SotS 2.

Edit to Add: Message 26 and Message 125 also reference that topic, through indirectly. And yes, I missed the OP. Thought I had scrolled up all the way. :googly:

Oh I know that. In fact, the OP's post has the message you're referring to.

I was just wondering if there was another message or even creature or item description in "The Pit" that specifically mentions Bloodweaver devouring souls/consciousness.

Sorry about that- I was in the midst of the world's longest edit and you pointed out what I was missing.

I can't recall any off-hand. That is essentially what the psionic skill 'Psi-Drain' involves though. The Suul'ka can employ both life-drain and psi-drain on a mass scale when 'feeding.'

Thematically, yes, Bloodweaver (and the other Suul'ka) can consume the psionic consciousness of other sentients, and can even preserve those lesser 'souls' within their own great minds. At least one Suul'ka can even move consciousnesses back into a mortal body.
