When you can choose your final resting place., May 25, 2024

Elysium is an almost kinetic-like entry with only two choices available to you, and one only truly affecting the ending (of which there are two). You are a fallen warrior gifted an eternity in paradise – of which you do not believe to be worthy. Violent snippets of your deeds haunt your mind, as you struggle with the disconnect between recompensed actions and motivations behind those actions.

There are many heroes that came to mind while reading this entry (which affected my choice of pronouns for your lover, who dies before you), as Greek Mythology can be pretty violent and bloody… But I’m glad our identity was kept a secret, so I could fill in who I wanted it to be. (FINE I PICKED (Spoiler - click to show)ACHILLES AND PATROCLUS OK)

I would have wished to be able to let our conundrum stew a bit longer before making the final choice, but this was a last-minute entry, so I can’t fault the author for keeping it short.

It was neat.
