Part 36

Update # 35

So this is Eden. Hm. It is... Blue. And looks kind of similar to Arcadia.
Let's see what is in this raised tile.

Uuuh. Okay. No more messages for Aleph?

Let's see what is in that structure.

Gabriel won't let Aleph go there. Damnation.

Might as well go and see what Voltai/Zain has to say. He is in the bright area.

Uuuh, yes?

Uuuh... Maybe?

Well, maybe Millenium IS the thing that is preventing the world from having peace and love between humans, demons and mutants. Maybe.
Or not.

Well, there are mutants and Gaians that seem to be able to survive just fine without the Millenium in the Underworld...

Too much death, too much sorrow, etc.

Oh boy, I feel one of those alignment shifting choices coming.

And here it is? What do you think the correct answer is?
Let's see using the amazing Cheat-O-Vision!

Notice the number. It is still in Neutral.

Extreme Law.
EXTREME. It is a permanent shift, according to Re-Miel.
Killing Terminators and stuff won't even add a number. Not one.

Wait what?
Lucifer said that it was awakening of its own/because the time for God's Wrath was coming and that he did not want that to happen. How could Lucifer be doing it?
Unless he was lying, but what are the chances that he was doing that?
Well. Prince of lies and whatnot, but that could be nothing more than Law propaganda

Goddamnit. Why must Aleph be the one responsible for DOING EVERYTHING.
Lucifer at least has the excuse that he is not doing shit yet because he is testing Aleph, and he said that he was actually going to face Satan himself. Bah.

Well, that didn't happen. Let's see what happens if one refuses.

God damnit, Voltai. Don't be such an asshat to the one that made it possible for you to NOT BE ENCASED IN CARBONITE.

Not teleported.
From the very top (because Eden is in the very, very top) of the impossibly high tower of the Center.
FUCKING HELL, Aleph, even if he is a human must be FAR more resilient than the Demi-Fiend, or Dante.

Well, there's the Center. Can't hurt to check a bit of it again, right?

HAHAAHAH and that random Holytown asshat WAS.
Sucks to be you.

Hm. Useful information that will be more useful in the future, maybe. A bit of trial and error.

Well, then go to Eden!

A teleport later, and the team is back in Tipheret.
Let's see what's around here.

Uuuh. Why the hell is Lucifer here? Isn't he supposed to be waiting at the Castle?
And... Goodbye?

Wait what.


Well duh.


Sure. So ordinary that the 3 Archangels were little more than a nuisance, and that could destroy an extremely powerful false YHVH. Ordinary.

Wikipedia posted:

He is referred to in The Lesser Key of Solomon as a very powerful deity. His main assistants are four demons called Aamon, Pruslas, Barbatos and Rashaverak. In art, in the Dictionnaire Infernal, Astaroth is depicted as a nude man with dragon-like wings, hands and feet, a second pair of feathered wings after the main, wearing a crown, holding a serpent in one hand, and riding a wolf or dog. According to Sebastian Michaelis he is a demon of the First Hierarchy, who seduces by means of laziness and vanity, and his adversary is St. Bartholomew, who can protect against him for he has resisted Astaroth's temptations. To others, he teaches mathematical sciences and handicrafts, can make men invisible and lead them to hidden treasures, and answers every question formulated to him. He was also said to give to mortal beings the power over serpents.

According to Francis Barrett (occultist), Astaroth is the prince of accusers and inquisitors. According to some demonologists of the 16th century, August is the month during which this demon's attacks against humans are stronger. He also goes by the name ‘Ashtart/Astarte which was rendered in the Latin Vulgate translation of the Bible as Astharthe (singular) and Astharoth (plural), that last form rendered in the King James Version of the Bible as Ashtaroth. It seems this plural form was taken either from the Latin or from some translation or other by those who did not know it was a plural form nor knew that it referred to a god, seeing it only as a name applied to some god other than God and therefore the name of a devil.

According to Lon Milo DuQuette and Christopher S. Hyatt, PhD, Astaroth is actually "a thinly disguised version of the goddess Astarte , who is anything but a monster."

Astaroth FAILS

No dice, should have asked BEFORE attacking.
Wait what. FEMALE?
So YHVH made him a post op female to male transexual. Har.

I believe that will cause problems for the former goddess.

But. It was easy.

Bah! Suure, you want Aleph to go ot Kether by his own volition. Should've waited there.

 Funny. He wants to perpetuate the life-death-rebirth cycle in this one, but he realy, really wants to break it in the next one. 

Permanent. Chaoticness. Bah!

Let's see what really happened.

Shame? SHAME? There is no shame in neutrality!

Oh shit.
Aleph just got himself the enmity of what might be the second most powerful being in existence. Maybe.

Let's see how Set is doing.



Oh well. No point in crying over spilt milk, I suppose. Time to move ahead.


Don't hae anything else to do around here.. So, yeah.


EWW. Wait what?

Next time: Holyshitomgwtfbbqlol developement and OH GOD NO.
