[Stories] Etna

Access level: low.

An essay by Explorer Grigio about Etna and the funeral traditions of Firestarters.

Thinking of Firestarters, I've always been drawn by the provocative, barbaric openness. Perhaps Etna helped me understand it in part.

Upon hearing that I wanted to learn more, she measured me with her eyes and smirked as if mentally giving me a score:

— Come on.

Etna led me to a room where the shamans wrapped the deceased in bright cloth. My guide smiled, took a small parcel from the table, and we went outside.

— To the sanctuary. Let's go.

The “sanctuary” was a small cave with a stone bowl on the pedestal. Etna placed the parcel, covered it with coal, and set it on fire.

The smell was… eloquent.

— We burn hearts, — Etna explained. — The body returns to its loved ones. They need to mourn and bury it, but the heart must be burned. Then the soul will be reborn in a flaming Cycle.

Etna's voice sounded strange.

— I knew him, — my companion explained. — He was a good one. Brave, proud, but… unlucky. The last of his clan.

— Then who's gonna take him?

Etna threw her head upwards.

— I am! He's my friend. I'll make sure he's not lonely.

Etna talked about her friend's death with a big smile, and I asked her if she grieved?

— Everybody feels pain! And you have to live it to the end. Those who died suddenly do not have this opportunity. — Etna looked at me angrily. — But the heart is already burned! So the feelings of the deceased passed to those who mourn. To me.

After a pause, she continued.

— Do you know how many hearts I burned in my life? Now their feelings live in me. I learned to keep them, not let grief break me.

One day I'll drive the ritual chariot to new lands. Only the drivers decide where the path of the tribe will lie, and I… I will lay it where we can avoid great wars.

I remembered talking about Etna — “only she can soften the anger of Vesuvius”. At that moment it seemed to me that I understood why. The power of her beliefs and feelings… I think they still burn me.

E. Grigio

The portrait “Etna” is currently available to players. It can be obtained by reaching reputation level 7 with the faction “Firestarters”.

TENGO UNA PREGUNTA: ¿Para qué sirve el líquido rojo de la máscara de Etna? ...

a) Un aromatizante

b) medicamentos o cualquier medicamento que reduzca el efecto del virus (tachado)

C) ????

On the other hand ... targem guys, I love crossout and its story, but if you don't do something that just put images ... these stories lose they are unattractive ... Thank you, the lore that the game and the details put on it but ... they should highlight it better ... I mean if they want to tell the story in a subtle way ... they could do it in the style of "valve" in a subtle way, when an npc in the garage speaks to us ... not just writing them in this forum

Why dont you understand that the story writers cant do the job of pushing an update?

Those are different guys and they work in parallel without outbreaking eachother. The writer could publish 0 or 100 articles like this and the update would not get released one day sooner or later.

If you dont care about the ETNA, just dont read it and dont waste your time to comment

The wedge fix is in pregress and as we can see in the current test they are not sure what and how they want to fix it. They should rather test different solution than implementing the wrong thing.
