Twice Born

SHIVER This is level twenty-three of
   Myth II: Soulblighter.
Go to the Journal for literature and interpretation of the level.

This level has one real easter egg, and a few bits that might be easter eggs and might just be some sort of reccurring oddity...
IMAGE

The first occurrance of said oddity(?) is when Shiver attacks the Deceiver at the start of the level. The particle streams she send look perfectly mundane (for world-shattering magic, that is), until they make impact, at which point, as you see, they flash tiny Tains. Wtf?
IMAGE
Next we find this here pit, toward the north. What is that red dot?
IMAGE

Looks like the tip of a Warlock's staff. Lets try to tell the 'Lock to pick it up - no way he can get over there, can he?
IMAGE
Woah! The land rises up!
IMAGE
And he walks right across!
IMAGE
Now lets see what that artifact does. We got four shots, but of what? Ah, cool! Triple seeking tiny fireballs that do full damage each!
IMAGE
Lastly, after the Deceiver defeats Shiver, he just stands there and gets blown up by some sort of magic falling from the sky where Shiver was standing. Shiver's last revenge? The script says "He's yours till he's dead" so it's not a bug. And the projectiles themselves are, again, tiny Tains...
IMAGE
Addendum: IronDuke pointed out on the Asylum that there are a few features of the color map for this level remniscient of "A Murder of Crows" and "The Five Champions". Heron Guard King pointed out that the top-left corner of the Shiver map is in fact identical to the lower-right corner of the Murder map!
IMAGE
That type of spiral design also appears on TFL's "The Five Champions", but this is certainly not that same area. However, an image like this one DOES appear on the Five Champions, except with one crow instead of two, and a different kind of animal being attacked. What's the connection?
IMAGE
While looking at the colormap, I found another image in the northeast corner, which appears to be a woman's face, much like Shiver's in the "Tales From Myth TFL" official Bungie comic. (See Relics).
IMAGE
Inky writes to say that the face reminds him more of Edvard Munch's painting: The Scream. I would tend to agree.

Legends and Lore is really Forrest's baby, though Gholsbane probably does more work on it nowadays. It also contains a lot of work from the Myth Nontoxic days whose exact authors have been lost or forgotten. Some of these lemurs include Joshstar, Orange, Lacrymosa, and poena.dare. Original "Journal of the Legion" concept by poena.dare and Hamish Sinclair. Other authors are credited as appropriate in their individual articles.

Myth at Bungie.org is now maintained almost entirely by Gholsbane and Zandervix; Forrest is (theoretically) still around calling the shots when he can be bothered to check his email, and Claude, as always, OWNZ U. Original Nontoxic™ webpage design copyright (c) 1998 by Joshstar; updates and revisions mostly by Forrest. Many thanks to all those old Nontoxic™ munkies - you know who you are.
