We are in agreement then, I must have misunderstood your position. Also according to the information we have, ordinary Shifter should not be able to go there whenever they like.
Well, explicitly we're just told that the Guardian can open a portal to allow his or her successor in.
Yeah we are, its a long and complicated discussion lol
I never got the impression that she needed the Kins help to reach the Guardian's Realm, merely that of the Guardian himself. But you are right that in ordinary circumstances only the Guardian and his or her successor can access the Realm. I do not believe the Kin have that ability.
I dont think thats exactly what tobias says, if you have any more quotes it would be really handy lol
Its the part where he is teaching April about how the divide was created. He says 4 'people' have access. Something like the old guardian, the current guardian and the guardian who will be, and the kin who where instrumental in its making (from memory).
So to get in, April needs an invite, or some help from the kin when the balance is functioning correctly.
edit: Old Alatien woman : This is very little. The Guardian's Realm is home to the Guardian and his tower. No one is permitted within except the Guardian whowas, the Guardian who is, the Guardian who will be. And of course, the Draic Kin who were instrumental in its making.
ok so it wasnt tobias, but I knew some one said it lol ! Old Alatien woman
is the Teller.
Cortez : To Shift? Si. The power is yours, yes? But for now, you need me to focus your powers, to call forth the dreams.
April : Dreams?
Cortez : Yes. To travel from one world to the next, you must pass through the world of dreams. It's the only way. You are capable of opening a Shift on your own, but you might not be able to.
Thanks for digging up the quote, make life easier. For me this is pretty cryptic. We know Brian has to trek through the story time on foot and it takes him....well along time. April doesnt have this issue, and right now im unconvinced a bit of dream robbery would affect a powerful shifter hoping over the divide.
I do not think Ragnar would have a cheap explanation as to why she couldn't Shift, and he has certainly never been know to place game mechanic considerations above story considerations
say what ? what game have you been playing, the combat is put in there as a total game play mechanic at the expense of story lol.
Lee-m: I guess you're right. You take all that exists and assume nothing else, thus gain nothing more, and stay with the holes that exist. Out of the benefit of the doubt I suggested that some extra information can be introduced to just dully close those holes and be done with it, but I do believe there's more to it than that, as I already said.
its not that I think your definitely wrong, you could guess correctly. I could come up with another theory that fits, but that wouldnt make it right. We just are not given enough info in the first game (and even digging back into TLJ) to come to a conclusion.
