It's been a while since I played the games and I remember the word Ourobourus being mentioned. I know what it means and symbolises but I was just wondering if anyone knows what bit it is mentioned in, by whom and in what context. Thanks.

Although I see absolutely no point to this thread, here it is. The Vahnatai say it when refering to the empire. It is a referance to the fact that because of their greed for Vahnatai magic, the Empire has destroyed itself, hence the snake eating itself whole.

Thank you for answering me, but I don't see why it matters whether you see a point to the post or not. I wanted to know for my reasons and do not need to inform the whole communtiy of them just to ask a question.

Oh I have no problem with the post, I don't care what your reasons are, I am just confused as to what type of real life implementation you could ever use this for besides making a scenario with BOA

which is exactly the reason I did want it for, however the context it was used in means I won't be using it.

Was it Rentar? I could have sworn it was one of the souls in the Shrine of Crystals.

im quite sure it was the left crystal soul. the one that teaches you vahnatai lore, that is not insane.
(still not too confident about rentar not saying something like that though)

It was the left Crystal Soul to whom it may concern. I really don't care about the Vahnatai... (insert colorful word here) ...with a passion. :mad:
