    based on that all the game occurs during night and the game is literally called dead by daylight:

    yes.

     im 100% sure that if there will ever be a video or sth similar to end the dbd lore, it will be a huge and beautiful sunrise, shining over the maps, ending the survivors suffering and maybe - yeah just maybe - destroying the entitiy

    Is dead by daylight a pun meaning "You'll be dead before the dawn comes" or "The daylight will be your end"? Like who is it directed at, killer, survivor, both? Or is it just a nice title with alliteration?

    Do you know those lights when you enter the basement? That's the Entity. She's not weak to light. The generators are just Her way of keeping the Survivors hopeful, make them believe that they can escape, so that She may feed on their hope.

    "Her"? As in, capital H? Is Entity your god or something?

    Anyways, just because the French name for Entity was female, it doesn't mean Entity doesn't have a gender. "Entite" sounds like the word Entity, hence why it may have been picked.

    Well, She is the goddess of the Fog. In-game, She is everyone's goddess.

    So, you are religious? Are you a member of a Entity cult or something?

    Entity is not a goddess. THEY are a malevolent being for sure. Who may or may not be fully sapient. Don't honor them with the "goddess" label. Hell, Entity is more of a "it" if anything else.

    They/it are a monster who wants to consume our world and does not care at all for anyone who gets involved in its games. You could even say they are a Lovecraftian monster.

    I also have no idea what you've smoked when you say "everyone's goddess". None of the Survivors know about the Entity. Killers don't know much either.

    If you are referring to offerings, which might not make sense Survivor-side because Baker knows little about the Entity and he's one of the oldest Survivors, then you could be offering them to a malevolent being, not a benevolent angel.

    Please escape this Lovecraftian fetish you have. It is very concerning.

    The Entity rules over Her Realm (yes, I'm capitalising it just to spite your stuck-up behind) and all beings trapped within. Technically speaking, She is at the very least equivalent to being their Goddess.

    And regarding the gender issue: the devs are for the most part French Canadian. French does not have a neutral form of nouns, everything is either male or female in terms of their linguistic gender. 'Entité' is a female noun and the devs have used the English pronoun 'she' multiple times when referring to the Entity on stream.

    "Stuck up behind" Are you friends with Orion? It'd explain a bit.

    Oh wow, trying to spite me because I'm trying to clear up a misconception. Amazing.

    Nope, they are a monster. They created a nightmarish plane of existence. You could say it is their web, or they are the ruler of it.

    "French does not have a neutral form of nouns, everything is either male or female in terms of their linguistic gender."

    So... you're proving me right then? Because I mention this up above.

    Entite, again, sounds like "Entity" when pronounced. And as for the devs using that pronoun... prove it.

    And please don't tell me you're going to source the person who said "I think we're doing a pretty good job so far."... I don't think he's considered part of the devs.

    Did you hop into this chain because your friend was being called out? It would explain why you didn't know I mentioned the Entite thing already.

    I did know you mentioned the Entite thing. I repeated it, because your reasoning and your understanding of the French language is [BAD WORD].

    The devs didn't pick Entity because it "sounded like 'Entité'". They picked the word because it literally is the English translation of the French word.

    And no, I'm not proving you right, in fact, I'm proving you wrong. The French name for the Entity, which is the original name, is female, and is what led the devs to call the Entity a 'She/Her' when they spoke of her in English. Pronouns tend to carry over and I'd say that ultimately, the devs' mother tongue gets to decide what is correct.

    Currently, it's not my job to find you proof. You made the original claim for her not being a woman and it's still on you to prove that with evidence. I stand in for the official statement/the general consensus and you are the one challenging that: prove me, that the Entity is not female.

    Also, apparently your definition of a god is that they must be benevolent (as you keep pointing out that the Entity is a monster). If you think that the Christian god is exclusively benevolent or actually even benevolent in the first case, then you do need to catch up on your bible studies.

    LMAO

    I actually remembered about other mythologies, like Loki and Apophis, but I didn't edit my post. Sorry for the mistake.

    "I did know you mentioned the Entite thing. I repeated it, because your reasoning and your understanding of the French language is [BAD WORD]."

    Jan, I was forming a theory, okay? I was guessing. And regurgitating what I said without adding anything new is somehow going to enlighten me?

    "The devs didn't pick Entity because it "sounded like 'Entité'". They picked the word because it literally is the English translation of the French word."

    It seems like they are pronounced the same. Hence where my theory came from.

    And I swear I've read in this thread or the wiki that gender neutral pronouns don't exist in French. They might have picked that specific pronoun because they were planning a English release.

    And... yes? Entite does sound and mean like the word Entity? I'm a bit confused.

    "And no, I'm not proving you right, in fact, I'm proving you wrong. The French name for the Entity, which is the original name, is female, and is what led the devs to call the Entity a 'She/Her' when they spoke of her in English. Pronouns tend to carry over and I'd say that ultimately, the devs' mother tongue gets to decide what is correct."

    Did a Google search to confirm my beliefs. I really don't think the French language has gender neutral pronouns.

    And yes, what "I think we're doing a good job so far" guy and the other girl thinks represents a entire team that is making the lore. Sure.

    Community managers are not the devs.

    "Currently, it's not my job to find you proof. You made the original claim for her not being a woman and it's still on you to prove that with evidence. I stand in for the official statement/the general consensus and you are the one challenging that: prove me, that the Entity is not female."

    ACTUALLY Becky, what I asked you to prove was where the devs specifically used the pronoun "she" when referring to the Entity.

    Orion actually indirectly made the claim that the Entity is a she as well by using "She" to refer to the Entity. So they also have that proof as well.

    And TBH I think that, with me talking about gender neutral pronouns not existing (correct me if I'm wrong) in French, my original theory is intact.

    Since Orion didn't, you might as well submit your own proof for Entity not being female. -shrug-

    Baker uses "it" pronouns (which is so much more accurate, I don't want the Entity humanized, it lessens the fear factor) when referring to the Entity. So there's some ingame evidence.

    "Also, apparently your definition of a god is that they must be benevolent (as you keep pointing out that the Entity is a monster). If you think that the Christian god is exclusively benevolent or actually even benevolent in the first case, then you do need to catch up on your bible studies."

    I admit my mistake, but Entity is so evil, they align more along the lines of a monster. Calling them "god" is giving them too much respect. (And yes, I know evil gods exist. But they are respected for their powers and status nonetheless. Entity deserves nothing.)

    And yeah, Christian god sends you to hell if you don't subscribe to his cult. And wants women to be submissive, even in new testament IIRC.
    I go to a private Christian school, when I would still attend Bible class and not just do work at home, our programming teacher had us cite a certain verse to read and understand. I read ahead and found another verse just a few sentences down telling women to submit to their husbands.

    Why is it so difficult for people to respond to just ONE comment at once? That reply is such a convoluted mess.

    I'd say the Entity's biggest weakness would be to some good old weedkiller or a pack of very hungry goats.

    Vigo actually knew quite a bit about the entity but no one worshiped it that i know of but i will check the wiki and get back to you though to be sure.

    ''Vigo is often mentioned in descriptions and the names of Unlockables.

    He was an Inventor and a Researcher. He extensively studied The Entity, especially its biological and organic aspect, alongside its Realms, to the point that he was able to create new contraptions from The Fog, both mechanical and magical.

    It was potentially him who created the Black Lock as it is known that it was not created by The Entity.

    It is known that he owned a Laboratory hidden somewhere in the Realms of The Entity.

    It is unknown what happened to him other than that he is no longer a Survivor in the Entity's Realm.'' the dead by daylight wiki's page on Vigo.

    The Killers are made to do the Entity's bidding, which is to relentlessly hunt and kill the Survivors. Many Killers do not do so willingly, although some are happy to sate their Bloodlust. Some have to be tortured over endless years to be coerced into doing what The Entity wants. The Entity is ever patient and the torture ever more severe. Eventually they all cave in and start the hunt for the Entity.

    The sacrifice is essential for The Entity, with the Killers being rewarded by their master for successfully sacrificing and only the best Killers being granted the boon to slaughter Survivors on the spot.

    ''The Entity actively recruits its Killers by sensing their killing potential in their mortal selves, before corrupting them into committing violent or evil acts. It is possible for it to change its mind during the process of converting the human into a new Killer and choosing someone else instead if it senses greater potential in them, as happened with Rin Yamaoka and her father, the latter having originally been chosen to become a Killer.'' a part of the dbd Wiki's page on the entity about its relationship with the killers under the sub-title ''killers''.

    Light severs the connection between killers and the entity. The red stain is actually the entity looking out through the killer's eyes. Read the huntress's perks.

    Do you think that... the player is the Entity then?


    Were we the Entity all long...?

  • bubbascalbubbascal Member Posts: 318

    I think it's referring to Survivors specifically...

  • bubbascalbubbascal Member Posts: 318

    Well, we DO have a few Entity worshippers in this forum so...
