Yawah
« on: April 20, 2010, 09:29:02 AM »
I was wondering exactly who or what yawah is; Is he even real, or just a fabrication of the cult?

More importantly, if he is real, will you get to fight him? Fighting a god... Brilliant!

One interesting fact; Yawah is very similar to the word yahweh, which means, in the hebrew bible, the 'One True God'.

I wonder if Craig knew that when he began designing the game, or simply took it from the hundreds of books that have used the name yawah as the name of a god, for their story.

Couldn't you ask that the same question about any religion and not really know the answer?

i think he is an incredibly powerful spirit, and has begun to ask mortals to worship him.
Fighting him is likely, mabye the battles with Yawah and D'Kah will be done like the Tastidian/Nelis battles where you have to fight through D'Kah to reach Yawah

The former. :)

But in games you actually CAN get an answer. Will you? Who knows?

Somehow, I like this idea. Though I certainly don't hope after fighting D'Kah I go up against Nelis, which I assume was a typo on your part... unless you mean the Spirit of Nelis?!?!

The spirit of Nelis would be a cool Easter Egg, but that WAS a typo
sorry

If I had to guess,  Cygnus and his Acolytes use thier psy powers to make it seem like "Yawah" is blessing people and granting its followers with special powers.  They are getting rid of psys, so one one can say "they are using psy powers, so Yawah isn't real"

I believe that while this may be the case for some, many people that actually use Psy powers might believe that they are just channeling power from Yawah, unlike their foes. Prehaps even Cygnus believed he was using Yawahs powers, not Psy abilities

You could go on the unlikely offshoot that Yawah is in fact this world's god. That he grants his followers special powers that are similar but still not the same as the psy's. That (at least in this god's opinion) psy's are evil. Or perhaps, the god is pissed that some humans are naturally obtaining abilities that it restricts to its devout. No body says the god has to be nice. I definitely could see Yawah ending up being real in this game, but is that the most likely answer? Probably not.

Oh, COME ON! You HAVE to have a fight with Yawah; I think everyone who plays the telepath series will be bitterly disappointed if you don't get to. I know I will.

Probably, but the question is who or what Yawah actually is? Or maybe there is no Yawah, but something else just as amusing. Don't underestimate our esteemed writer. I very much doubt that he will disappoint.

That's the point! By the time you get to the end of the game, virtually nothing can challenge you! Take TPRG 2. It required a apparently immortal spirit to even make you pause. And the battle was still pretty easy, I must admit.

I very much hope that you get to fight Yawah. It would be fun.
