    I know who Sen is! (Sorta)

    Post by Wilkinson3424 on Sat Jun 29, 2013 1:21 pm

    Blacksmith Giant has no name

     Blacksmith Giant is a Blacksmith

     Blacksmith Giant gets Shiny Shiny from Seath, That connects him to Sen's and the Archives.

     Blacksmith Giant sells bolts for the Cross Bow that you find in the Archives that is like the one that is in Sen's.

     Blacksmith Giant (Mindblower) is the only one that works with demon titanite.... DEMON titanite!

     Blacksmith Giant (Lesser Mindblower) has friends in sen's fortress.

     Blacksmith Giant (Super Predictable Mindblower) is Sen.

    Don't bring up the "Sen is dead" Argument, (Some people think that Sen was the Blacksmith God) He could have like... been reborn in a new form or something idunno.

    But Here is my backup plan if Sen is dead, I think the guy who made the Avelyn is Sen, It could be a nickname, And the Giants were his little friends.

    Giant Blacksmith is Sen's friend.

    See this kind of prejudice is what holds back our society. What, just because two people are giants they have to be friends? So I guess that you expect all invaders to get along and be buddies as well, because that's not what I see. Here's a mindblower for you: giants are people as well. Just because someone is tall you have to call them a giant and pretend they exist as their own race? Gwynevere is tall, Priscilla is tall, and even Ornstein and Smough are pretty tall. Does that make it okay to group them together and call them "giants?" No, of course it doesn't. So what else makes giants separate from the rest of the people I just mentioned? Their skin color. That's right, you're just a know good racist. They just so happen to be tall and dark skinned, and so you run off and call them "giants." I'm so sick of the world.

    I don't see how the giant blacksmith could be Sen. What connects him as the creator of the Fortress? Sure there are other giants but he can be friends and maybe his kind live very long so perhaps that is how he is able to work with demon titanite and the twinkling form? Though you got me with the Avelyn. That weapon may have been built by Sen.

    Sen is a very basic name, it is good for a Giant, and how is calling them giants racist? They ARE giants, they all look the same, act the same, talk the same, make the same noises.

    And Giants may have been considered gods by other cultures! That is why they say it was built by gods!

    Here we go, all giants are the same, typical. Let me ask you this, do you speak "giant?" Have you ever involved yourself in the culture of others? If not then why don't you try it. You'll learn that "they" are just like us. All sorts of people exist within their society and it makes no sense at all to suggest that they are all the same because the 3 that you met were the same. What if aliens landed on Earth and met a bunch of bros and went, "Screw it, this planet is doomed anyway let's just kill em?" Obviously that would be stupid because they would only have met the smallest fraction of a percentage of the the population. I rest my case, whenever you'd like to move away from ignorance and enter the 21st century be my guest.

    Each giant in dark souls stomps around when you attack him, (Not 100% about gough).

    They all make the same noises.

    What is so bad about that? Why do you feel so strongly about a creature that is in a game world? It is a giant! I don't mean personality wise. That much is obvious because Blacksmithy giant is not hostile, but the others are. But honestly, they are all a race of giants. That is just a fact.

    "All a race of giants." Do you hear yourself? What if someone got all the brown people in the world and said, "Look, you guys are brown, eat food, and like being alive so now you're a separate race." Obviously this is wrong on so many levels. Have you ever taken a modern biology class? What about anthropology? If you did you would realize that the concept of race has no biological basis and completely man made. Until you accept this I cannot debate with you further as this will lead nowhere.

    Technically speaking we don't the actual name of these giants in the game so we just went by their size as the naming factor.

    That makes absolutley no sense, I did not even read the rest of your post after I read the part about the brown person. You need to understand, They are giants like we are humans. I am not seperating giant from giant, saying this giant is a different kind of giant because it looks different. That's actually my point, Every single giant looks the same, in every way, and fight the same, in every way, Apart from Gough who is was a knight of Gwyn. The Game calls them giants, the giants call themselves giants, their weapons call them giants, they are giants. Im not discriminating them for what they look like, im classifying them as what they are.

    Dropping the Topic.

    Hmm, Divinity?

    My biggest issue is what defines a "god" in the dark souls universe. We know they can be killed, what makes them different from mortals, except another body form?

    God: a being or object believed to have more than natural attributes and powers and to require human worship

    Well, Gwyn is a "god", but he really do not posses anything other than a very powerful soul.

    Well, does that mean that all undead are gods?

    They can all become "beings or objects believed to have more than natural attributes and powers and to require human worship"

    Alright here is what I think,

    I think Andre is the one who said the place was built by gods, But nevertheless who says their sources are right in such a desolate wasteland with barely any sane people in it? And what if their culture respected giants enough to begin worshipping them as gods at some point in time? Giants are huge, they could be seen as humans as they can speak english, but very large humans, perhaps divine humans. What if the blacksmith god was simply another giant who used demon titanite, and the one in Anor Londo is just like him but no one ever knew about him besides the Anor Londo gods. The Blacksmith giant (Sen) could have been friends with the Blacksmith God, and together they created Sen's fortress with the help of other giants, which may have gotten stuck up there because of their large size and went insane from being able to only do work, which would explain their hostility towards the player.

    Why the blacksmith god being friends with Sen speculation? He could have created the traps, and created the Golem and his Magical Weapon. (That is upgraded with Demon titanite, like the other weapons of the gods.)

    How does the knowledge of Crystal Ember connects the Giant Blacksmith to Seath, or Sen's Fortress?
    He actually says and I quote "Get shiny from Duke.".
    He speaks about some unnamed Duke, who was the previous owner of Duke's Archives, before Gwyn gave them to Seath, so that Seath can continue to pursue his research.

    Wilkinson3424 wrote: Blacksmith Giant sells bolts for the Cross Bow that you find in the Archives that is like the one that is in Sen's.
    To quote a Lightning Bolt description: "The giant blacksmith has never seen a
    crossbow, but remembers the specifications of the bolts requested by ancient warriors."
    . This simply implies that he knows how to create Bolts, because he was given their specifics by a crossbow user, not a crossbow designer, because as such, he would no doubt be able to create crossbows as well.

    Wilkinson3424 wrote: Blacksmith Giant (Mindblower) is the only one that works with demon titanite.... DEMON titanite!
    Given the fact that Anor Londo has been in war with dragons (thus why he can create Lightning weapons) and later demons created by Chaos Flame, it would only make sense for their blacksmith to utilize the power of demons, so that it can be used against them. Also, his ability to do is mostly for gameplay purposes as he is the hardest blacksmith to reach. You can rush to Vamos right after you start the game, but getting to Anor Londo requires some time.

    Wilkinson3424 wrote: Blacksmith Giant (Lesser Mindblower) has friends in sen's fortress.
    The fact he looks like the giants in Sen's Fortress doesn't imply anything. It's a slightly racist asumption, which is like saying "All asians know kung-fu".

    Wilkinson3424 wrote:But Here is my backup plan if Sen is dead, I think the guy who made the Avelyn is Sen, It could be a nickname, And the Giants were his little friends.
    Avelyn has been made by craftsman Eidas, as is said in the weapon's description. I've read a theory that Eidas is also responsible for the shooting traps in Sen's Fortress, because they fire and sound in similar fashion to Avelyn and there seems to be carvings on the traps, which bear similarities to Avelyn's design. If the fortress would be named after the trap creator, there is no reason to not name it Eidas' Fortress instead of Sen's. Saying that it can be a nickname is silly. With this kind of logic, we could disaprove, or aprove every lore theory.

    The person who downrepped you was me, if you must know.
    I have done so because your theory lacks any evidence and is based sorely on asumptions. Such theories only lead to misleading rumours like the one claiming you can save Sif if you do *enter random nonesense*. Also, the poll is irrelevant to the thread with no real option to choose from and both options include words that would imply the person choosing an answer in the poll has any sort of romantic feelings for the author. Thus disabling those who lack these feelings for the author from picking a option.

    There is a lack of any evidence supporting the claim the this blacksmith is Sen. What keeps me away is the Giant's intelligence. Sorry but even if he can make the weapons of the bosses using their souls and work the Demon titinaite (sorry spelling) doesn't make him well known or smart. The fact that his speech is that of a young child makes it really hard for me to believe this guy was the creator of the difficult and deadly traps in that fortress.

    I can't imagine how someone of his size could create such tiny contraptions and mechanisms as those used in crossbows. I could understand the boulder trap at best.

    I posted this on another thread, but I think it belongs here. Still, it's speculation, so here goes:

    Lightning Bolt: "Special bolts imbued with lightning, crafted by the giant blacksmith of Anor Londo. The giant blacksmith has never seen a crossbow, but remembers the specifications of the bolts requested by ancient warriors."

    Yet, Sen's Fortress is littered with "Crossbow-like" traps. My belief is that this serves as sufficient evidence against the idea that the Giant Blacksmith is Sen. I think that, since giants seem to be "working", so to speak, in Sen's Fortress, Sen must be the master/employer of the Giants. To extend this further, perhaps the Giant Blacksmith was one of his apprentices.

    This seems very reasonable and possible to me.

    I always asumed that the word Sen is either the name of fortress' designer and thus it was named after him. Or it is the name of the race those giants belong to, because unlike the serpentmen, the giants are crucial parts of the fortress and it's mechanisms, thus naming the fortress after them would make some sense as well.

    "Sen's Fortress is an old proving grounds built by the ancient gods. It is the only route leading to great Anor Londo." Andre
    The "ancient gods" created Sen's fortress so Sen is not the creator of the fortress. This actually paves the way for Sen being anything from a Giant to the core of the Iron F---ing Golem itself. Hell, Sen could have been the name of a particularly powerful dragon whose bone created the Iron Golem.

    In my post, at the very end, I slightly imply my belief that it is possible that Sen is the Blacksmith deity (with the Giant Blacksmith being an apprentice). I think that that would qualify Sen's Fortress as having been built by the gods. That is much more far-fetched than anything else I've written, but it could certainly serve as a possible explanation.
