Question the omens.

Should be the easiest one.

28078: someone - Monday, October 18 2021 - 12:11 AM

Well, somebody cool just gave us a bunch of the answers previously, so this should be a much better guess for those of us not actually living in this world.

28079: Anthony - Monday, October 18 2021 - 12:12 AM

I assume black crystal, as it certainly doesn't have the description of an omen.

28081: Straightbackward - Monday, October 18 2021 - 12:47 AM

By the words of Zalander, neither beast nor statues nor black crystal is specifically an omen.
Since omens are 'cracks on reality' that defy rules, I buy the appearance of black crystal to be an omen.
Between curse of beast and the statue thing, I chose statues as non-omen. Zalander said something about being reborn with different or more limbs, so... perhaps.

28083: MatthewTheLucky - Monday, October 18 2021 - 1:11 AM

Black Crystal, because it's anti-magic

28084: Anonymous Person - Monday, October 18 2021 - 1:20 AM

Going with black crystal on this one. Wasn't on the list and didn't seem like a sign per se.

28086: Random Watcher - Monday, October 18 2021 - 1:34 AM

Yeah, I'll go with Black Crystal like everyone else.
Also Three is living up to my initial bet so far. Wonder how long that'll last.

28087: noname - Monday, October 18 2021 - 1:50 AM

Given Black Crystal's anti-magical properties, it does kinda strike me as inconsistent if its appearance/discovery counts as a "magic omen"...

Pirates of Dark Water really was a severely underrated show.

28089: Baprr - Monday, October 18 2021 - 2:40 AM

It's the falling ships. They fell off Burk's starship and they are not magic.

They are Burk.

28090: Keinname - Monday, October 18 2021 - 2:53 AM

I was going to vote for the storm of ships, given we should've seen evidence of such a event by now. But then again, i might be grossly overestimating the amount of ships produced, and also missed elements of said ships in the background.
Plus, most of them would be cleaned up by now.
So i vote crystal.

28091: Questionable Intent - Monday, October 18 2021 - 3:05 AM

Holy crap I got the last answer right! =D

For this one though I got no idea. The Black Crystal answer makes sense, but the Living statue one seems rather specific and the least omen ish out of them. It also has me starting to think the Enigmatic Darkness Knight may actually be one of these living statues as his appearance is hidden and he is also immortal.

So going for the long shot of yellow yellow.

28092: Brilliand - Monday, October 18 2021 - 3:10 AM

I'm goin with the statues. They just seem to small-scale to be an omen.

28093: Stank - Monday, October 18 2021 - 3:56 AM

So, do we now know what that guy who assaulted the pirate or the storm was?

Zalander explaining the omens

This leaves the curse of the beasts, the living statues, and the black crystals.

The black crystals seem like a "natural" thing, unlike every other option. So I'll go with that.

...I need to get at least one right (>_>)

28095: Stank - Monday, October 18 2021 - 4:11 AM

My guess is black crystal, with a secondary guess of the golems

28096: TheMegax - Monday, October 18 2021 - 4:26 AM

Also just realized Logan is a pale children. Red hair? Check. Pale skin? Check. Powerful environmental magic? Check.
I mean, it is that or a really big coincidence.

28097: Strannik - Monday, October 18 2021 - 5:58 AM

The paladin explained that black crystals mines were old, so i think that cant' be something new as an omen ?

About living immortal statue, i guess we already saw one : Niles

28098: Sir. Orc - Monday, October 18 2021 - 7:02 AM

Based on the Zalandar interlude and what Shaliah said about Black Crystal and the origins of the Sight, I’m inclined to say Black Crystal is the answer, as it was mentioned as having been created through an unethical process, and Zalandar said that the omens are specifically magical phenomena which runs counter to Black Crystal’s nature.

28099: Forum Explorer - Monday, October 18 2021 - 9:00 AM

Going with Black Crystal.

28100: Whim - Monday, October 18 2021 - 9:26 AM

It's gotta be Black Crystal

...If Nail was a statue-man I think it'd make a lot of sense

28101: omni001 - Monday, October 18 2021 - 9:59 AM

Black Crystal

Is it just me or does the dream sound like it could be Toby's homeland?

28102: Abbie - Monday, October 18 2021 - 10:37 AM

I think if someone pulled off smiley's shackles, they'd find a ghoul underneath. He's all covered up because people would freak out if they saw him. He's all bound up for...safety reasons. He's guessing because ghouls don't pay attention to this kind of stuff. And we already saw that ghouls are somehow involved with this event, since they got Tobi to join it.

Thanks for the link, @TheMegax. ...I think I'll go with the beastmen and say that Fox will finally get one right.

28103: noname - Monday, October 18 2021 - 11:10 AM

There's something about these omens that make me feel like they have SCP written all over them.

28104: Saiko - Monday, October 18 2021 - 11:25 AM

Funny that one of the criminals (Bindy) doesn't know who the most wanted criminals are. Also is Three incredibly lucky, or incredibly savvy?

28105: Kiithnaras - Monday, October 18 2021 - 11:28 AM

Black Crystal, totes.

Three is three for three, wheeeeee!

28106: TheMegax - Monday, October 18 2021 - 12:53 PM

@Strannik
Who is Niles? I'm vaguely aware of that name...

28107: Tom - Monday, October 18 2021 - 1:04 PM

Good grief, the world building keeps on keeping on!

28108: Zed - Monday, October 18 2021 - 1:58 PM

@TheMegax

The ginger criminal alongside Midas Touch guy that beat the shit out of pirate of storm for a good bit.

You know, looking back, when Logan (the windy hero) mentioned that "we get knocked out easily", maybe he meant other people with white skin/red hair, as opposed to it being a joke about videogame heroes getting knocked out in 1-2 hits.

28109: Strannik - Monday, October 18 2021 - 2:09 PM

Niles is the golem fighting Ariara page 890. yes, that does take us back.

28110: Luminous Lead - Monday, October 18 2021 - 2:11 PM

Black Crystal?

28111: TheMegax - Monday, October 18 2021 - 2:15 PM

@Zed
Huh, it fits pretty nicely with it's description: An (supposedly) immortal being that claims to be a human, the blue hue and stone-like body.
The only thing is that apparently nobody has seen one transform... That lived to tell the tale I guess.

Another thing that's bothering me is that we haven't seen any cyclops so far (that I know of at least)

28112: Random Snail - Monday, October 18 2021 - 7:01 PM

@Zed

I suspect the same. I always felt that Logan's comment about that wasn't in regards to other heroes, as everything we've seen about Heroland's heroes so far show them to just be ordinary magics users (pandamonium mostly I think), and all we have seen of other magic users so far has not really given me the impression that they are really easy to 'knock out', rather the opposite really.

As for the vote, I would guess that it is either yellow-yellow or red-green, probably red-green. Seems the most directly man-made (and we know it to be at least partially so) and so the least likely to be considered an omen methinks.

28114: Rainer - Monday, October 18 2021 - 9:45 PM

Im going to say the black crystal isn't an omen!
