s on this forge depict dragons which could be a reference to the dragons that once inhabited here and although I don't think we can say for sure who built this forging the art of blacksmithing is said to have originated among the giants and the craft was even once considered divine so it seems likely that they at least made good use of these fiery sparks from t their forge would collapse and fertilize the smoky flowers that bloomed on the tops of the mountains and it seems that it was quite a crucial part of life in this region. they held a lone curse to serve as keepers of the flame for eternity now traditionally in software games curses are the domain of the gods and in fact the fire giants are said to have borrowed the power from one of those gods who is represented here by a single large red eye this god is called the god of flame and is believed to inhabit fire itself as well as the bodies of the fire giants who worshiped him the giants shared b

s with the astrologers who According to their legendary knight sword and flame they established themselves on the tops of the mountains and considered the fire giants as their neighbors, the relationship here is implied to be friendly, even collaborative, perhaps as the sword combines th The power of the flame and power of the primal stream looming in the night sky, the sword would become a treasure of the scavenger royal family and the scavengers themselves s Probably descendants of the astrologers generations later these scavenger kings would call on their old giant allies for help, but we'll get to that in a bit, the fire giants also had another neighbor with whom relations weren't so friendly.

Farther down in the mountains, just past the forbidden lands, the knights of Zamor wandered in their armor these long. Warriors who lived clad in icy winds are said to have been the mortal enemies of the fire giants since time immemorial. In keeping with their weaponry, these beings devoted themselves to winter itself and had weapons fashioned after icy winds and bodies that were engulfed in swirling ice storms. It makes sense that such cold beings were natural mortal enemies of the fire giants and commonly challenged their larger rivals, but it seems their real break came when Queen America waged war against the fire giants and the Knights of Zamor joined forces. gladly to his offense.

They gained great renown among the

of the odd tree and many ancient heroes of zamor were hailed as heroes like the fire giants. they were largely wiped off the face of the earth after this war so far i have resisted calling the giants evil but the reality is that in almost every item description their god is described as a vile god and the flame giant is a flame of doom and to be fair his god doesn't seem like a very nice guy, I mean he only really opens his eye when the fire giant boss sacrifices a leg which is quite metallic, But I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt. because I think it's pretty clear who is writing the story about this vile god here, the many mentions of this god as evil clearly stem from the fact that fire itself was just this extremely taboo subject du

the earth tree era of America and not It's just Giant Flame items mentioning this fire were generally off-limits to those who

that many rival Outer Gods also have a flame of their own.

The formless mother has a blood flame. the three fingers have been frantic. flame, the outer god of death has a ghost flame, but the giant's flame in particular was able to burn the earth tree and that is a fact that clearly inspired the inevitable war with the giants, so the giants were considered deadly enemies of the earth tree and supposedly devastated it. nature unleashed avalanches and whipped up flame storms with her roars clearly those who

the tree of ode were afraid and perhaps rightly so and so led by lord godfrey the forces of the earth tree went to war the fire giants they borrowed the power of the fel god to fight the earth tree, but were defeated nonetheless, according to the flame burn incantation, this released the fire giants from their curse to serve as guardians of the flame, all except one in which the vile god still hides within and realizing that the giant's flame would never die, America left this last giant alive knowing that he was obligated to protect the flame for all eternity and thus leaving him cursed cursed to protect the flame of someone like us, in addition to the knights of zamor, many lesser giants were also tied to the war against the giants s of fire, these lesser giants are called trolls and it is confirmed that they are a race descended from the giants, this relationship is clearer on the mountain tops where the trolls here still cast giant flame enchantments.
the lore of elden ring s bosses that served the golden order
Troll hammers were even once used as ancient ceremonial blacksmithing tools, so it seems evident that trolls and fire giants co-existed for a while and then drifted further apart because while some trolls are still supposed to be fire giants fire in the background many are now not in the hearts of most trolls it's nothing there's this suspicious hole here almost as if something has been ripped from his torso and when you consider what's on the torso of the last fire giant that remains, the truth becomes quite clear, every troll is now missing that giant eye of their outer god and if you manage to look very closely here on a troll we realize that in its place is this strange stone tablet that is kept instead by what looks like roots as pointed out by quailag these rooted tablets are very reminiscent of the rooted shackles that were created to bind the omen twins moog and morgot which might suggest r that the trolls are also being shackled or suppressed by the US in some way this is just speculation of course but the US has this suspicious set of stone tablets in their chambers and I think it's a good theory a tombstone from sword in the mountaintops elaborates more on the role of the troll in the war of the giants here the champions fought and supposedly the trolls betrayed, but what was the nature of this betrayal?
the lore of elden ring s bosses that served the golden order
Either the giants resent their larger kin or the marrica forced this betrayal somehow with the stone shackles. swords that have long since lost any trace of gold, so whether they carry coffins or mine to the bedrock of the earth, their sad state is reminiscent of slavery now more than anything else that said some trolls seem to have a little more dignity and these are the ones who fought against the tree of ode later these were the enchanted troll knights considered comrades of the young ranala and were called to service when the queen invoked an oath they swore long ago as mentioned above the trolls date back to when the fire giants and the astrologers were still neighbors and back then it seems they for some reason swore an oath to the astrologers and later when the scavengers went to war against the urgery i am assuming the trolls eventually they were called to that service to be treated as true knights of the wielder wielding swords encrusted with blue glowing stone and summoning huge shining blades fought amin with their long lost human comrades, for example, is another example of that relationship in how he became the royal blacksmith of the carrion family and, unlike the stone digging trolls, actually he uses that weapon for its intended purpose as a blacksmith's hammer and now serves the rani lady, whom he has known since his childhood.

Next, I want to talk about the cavalry of the night. these recur

s further into the world and eliminates the champions that come from Stormville Castle Morgot's Big Role in the story is that he is a staunch defender of urgency who would not dare betray the

calls all other demigods stubborn traitors simply for fighting over the great runes of the elven

ring

even radhan who has many signs of being quite loyal to the

golden

order

is called a traitor simply because he fights in a stage with another character who it has a great rune on it, you can even see morgot in one of these opening cinematics jumping on what looks like radon and managing to even get an attack on one of the more powerful demigods in fact a channel called smotown has a really good little video discussing if this is really redan and i recommend you go and watch it anyway my point is that the cavalry of the knights seemed to fulfill a similar role to margate according to their armor, they were dealers of death for great warriors, knights and champions, simple as that, no reason is listed except that they have a reputation for taking out the knights bigger. warriors of the world and it makes sense that that would be their goal because only the strongest can acquire two great runes and get close to the earth tree so it's almost as if the force itself must be suppressed so that morgot's failed

can stay as to why margaret defends Stormvale I like to think she's fighting here because she recognizes that Godric is the weakest of the demigods still left, so she's bolste

her strength in that regard and trying to keep this shaky stalemate going. a strong defense is essentially the guiding principle of those who serve the erd tree especially as you get closer to the capital there are numerous examples of this dell lane soldiers fight their battles on the defensive the del lane knights always put their shield up first that sword and lanedale city is built to withstand siege with layers upon layers of built-in defensive measures and the standard of protection to which a spiran all defenders of the old tree is that of the tree sentinels whose

order

became the living wall of the earth tree adorned in

golden

tree crest armor and shields that can retaliate with beams of light turn defense into offense and that's the idea in Lane Dell Defense is the best offense and the way this idea is presented is such a beautiful storytelling that many characters in other areas of the lands between yearn to return to the blessed land of the tree of ode and even for you it is this goal that looms over you throughout the game, so the path is designed to repel everyone approaching, you know that the road through Leonia has collapsed, so you must take this route secret flooded through the mountain this is my favorite part of the game by the way finding this secret path through the mountains and infiltrating the Altus Plateau and then when you finally get there there are countless crossbow and golem arches and they are all placed facing outward and finally you even find a side entrance to the l lane and that is even guarded by a sentinel tree and it is not just any sentinel tree this is actually a draconic sentinel tree which is a little different this variant of sentinels arose after the ancient dragons attacked lane del in their story and we talked more about this event in the video about the demigods, but in the end the ancient dragons became friends and the worship of the ancient dragons was considered acceptable along with the belief that the scent dragons united with the

order

, so to speak, and the dragon cultists followed them in a physical fashion was also instrumental to the rise of the earth tree: the knights of the crucible, they were ultimately despised for their strength, for their appearance, and for their strong resemblance to chaos and how that inspired who they were origi Finally sixteen of these nights

served

Godfrey, the first eldest lord and the 16 still remain in the lands among one is imprisoned in an eternal jail, two seem to be dead and are summoned to fight and As spirits, a number of crucible knights still they patrol the lane and somethey protect the great roots of the trees, though most are left moping in remote corners of the earth and one of them has even found a new blasphemous master, so next time you fight these, think carefully where. they are and who they are fighting because each knight is a distinct character with purpose or lack thereof, though once united by a common purpose and a single lord, many of these knights fight with different aspects of the crucible some fight with wings , some with fiery horns and tails, but what they all have in common is their mastery of their lord Godfrey's signature stomp attack, which cracks the ground beneath their feet.
Dying over it makes me feel a little better, anyway, I think it's important to remember that Godfrey and his Crucible Knights existed in a time before the odd trees, an era with the great tree in its primordial form when there was this red dyed crucible of life and these were warriors drawing power from their chaos eventually however they were brought on board with

order

which is best exemplified by Godfrey being tamed by the ruling beast on his back there are two types of ornamentation that has the crucible knights may have an ax ornamentation which is used by the crucible knight or dovis and his men and i think the ax is a bit of a homage to godfrey again and then there are some nights they have a large tree ornamentation and these are put on display by the selurian knight and his men, which of course is a reference to the great tree itself and I'd like to quickly talk about the great tree in one of my first videos of history I proposed that there was a great tree that must have existed before the erd tree and that the erd tree might even have replaced this great tree, this was based on the description of the English root resin element that has the word great tree capitalized and as a word that certainly makes you think it's a distinct tree, the line is the roots of the great tree once linked to those of the earth tree, which is a line that seems to clearly establish that these are two separate trees , except the Japanese translation doesn't say that the Japanese translation says these roots are said to have Once connected to the

golden

tree, it mentions the great tree before, but it seems like it only references the tree of ode as that big tree because it's a really big tree.
Some people have interpreted this to mean that there was no big tree before. the earth tree and while that is certainly possible I think it is still fair to argue that there was a great tree before the oak because many of the elements of the crucible night reference a primordial form of the earth tree and they have ornamentation and history that is based on this primordial sanctity which is not the sanctity of a strange tree, so calling it a great tree could be referencing that tree and secondly, the siluria defends a giant tree in the depths deep from the root, it's one that has this hollowed-out entrance that's also reminiscent of the entrance in the earth tree, so maybe there's something here.
I just wanted to clear that up for now, but the reality is we don't know for sure and hopefully DLC will. to shed light on some of these bygone eras of the world which seems to be a common trend with dlc software and there really are so many leftovers from earlier eras in this game and I'd love to see a bit more about what their cultures really were like that makes you feeling annoyed by how all-encompassing the strange tree became. A lot of these cultures have been lost and I guess that's how a lot of characters in the game feel, they also feel upset about it and knowing this.
The fact helps you understand why many of these characters are okay with burning the weird tree they are totally okay with it and this b

, but understanding their law might make it a bit more palatable anyway, so while these creatures are fighting near the trees, I don't think they are defending them, rather I think they are this corrupted byproduct of dead or dying trees, we know that one of the new purposes of the earth tree is to accept spirits and allow them to continue living and it's almost as if these feste

ring

spirits are this horrible failure of that process one of miyazaki's favorite themes in these games is the idea that the Life is not meant to be eternal and I believe that these Spirits are a physical manifestation of stagnation and decay.
They are the product of an era of urgency that really should have ended a long time ago. Most of the tree spirits drop

seeds which are also found at the base of smaller illusory trees and read when the ancient

shattered these seeds flew from the strange tree spreading across the various lands as if life itself knew that had come to an end the talisman also goes on to say that the tree of ode was once perfect and eternal and therefore it was believed that the seeds of the tree of the earth could not exist this was when there was an age of plenty when blessings literally they dripped from the branches of the ode tree like sap and the warm light of the earth tree healed those who bathed in its rays. it was only for a fleeting moment such is the course of a lifetime then the leaves began to fall and as you know from the introduction and endings the fallen leaves tell a story the story is that the strange tree was withe

ring

scattered across the lands between are herds of lesser trees where crystal tears are to be collected basins were placed at the feet of herds of lesser trees to collect these tears, although in some cases these tears are shed by avatars of earthen trees in When the

Elden

ring

shattered, the avatars emerged wielding ceremonial staves depicting the strange tree in its historic radiance.
These creatures are the will of the dying earth tree made manifest. I think they are literally part of the tree after all and desperately fighting to protect the lesser earthen trees that are descendants of the withered oak itself, some avatars placed in caled and michela's hailig tree are rotten avatars and even have this staff of unique design that rots just as they remember the hailik tree is also an emulation of the tree of ode so it makes sense that it would also have its own avatars and keep fighting because for a lot of these creatures any strange tree either minor, a copy or doomed, is something worth protecting, so if you've made it all the way. until the end of this video, chances are you love this kind of long-form content, so an audible subscription might be right for you too.
