Onward
Austin Wintory Lyrics


Áfram
Veginn sem sólin eilífa lýsir
Og aðeins hinir hugdjörfu geta farið.

Áfram.
Hvert spjótalag og hver hrösun
á sér orsakir.

Áfram.
Friðþæging undir stjörnuhimni bíður
þeirra sem verðskulda næturhvíld.

Onward,
As the endless sun lights a path
Only the brave can follow

Onward,
Every fighting step and stumble
Is not without reason

Onward,
Atonement rests beneath the stars
For those who earn the night

I tend to disagree, given that Rook is a capable and protective father he would never, in his sensible mind, allow Alette to partake in a suicide mission.


It defies all logic and reason for him to do so, given that his entire goal throughout the journey so far has been to protect her, and his people...


Not to mention that the Menders even state as such - that to fire this arrow is to be your death - and Menders, though not divine in their intellect, do have some knowledgeable capacity when it comes to subjects of fate.


These people, who clearly know more than they let on, hand selected him for the task - citing ominously that he has "the will to survive".

I let Rook do it as well, sure Allete could have done it, but what kind of father wouldn't protect his daughter in this kind of situation and not do it himself? The ending was perfect.

The beauty of the choice the game offers is that both options are correct in their own way. Parents want to see their children grow and become powerful in their own right, but they also want to protect them from harm.

Each, parent or child, will suffer grief, and their response to that grief shapes them as a person, casts a pall over the second game of the power of rage and sadness and desperation and fear, all bound together with a single thread of hope.

To me there is a huge difference between letting your child learn to do things on it's own, and letting your child do a mission that's basically suicide.Letting her join the warband as a fighter is alright, she would have had to fight anyways sooner or later, but going on a suicide run against an invulnearable monster? That's different...

You wouldn't let your child run back into your burning home to get the bloody cat still trapped inside, you'd do it yourself and let your child wait outside (assuming you're stupid enough to do that to begin with ;-P). Why? Because it's a parent's bloody job to do just that in this kinds of situations, and because every fibre of your body will tell you that that's how it's supposed to be.

At least it's like that for me, if other parent's find it ok to let their children do suicide missions while staying behind and watching them do it, that's their decision, but I couldn't live with myself standing at my childs grave if it could have been me instead and I decided against it..

I had a friend who was protective of her little brother. During one skiing trip, he asked to split up and go on different ski runs. She wanted to stay with him but she realized that he needed the chance to make his own decisions. Sadly, her brother hit a tree while skiing down the slope and was knocked unconscious.  He suffocated to death in the snow bank before someone found him. At the funeral she read "Oh the places you'll go" by Doctor Seuss, and talked about how she had to let him go so he could live his own life.

You ask "kind of father wouldn't protect his daughter in this kind of situation and not do it himself?". Yet I see him failing when he refuses to let her take risks and live how she sees fit. What kind of father would treat his daughter like a painted doll in a glass case, never to be scratched or dirtied?

Malukah's voice surprised me a bit on this soundtrack. She sounds older, more mature - awesome as always of course :)

@Lucian Stoicescu Don't forget Taylor Davis ;) with violin

I almost didn't think it was her.  You are spot on with the 'more mature' comment.

I just finished this game and all I can say is WOW!! What an amazing and unique RTS. This song soooo totally fit the mood of the ending which was so sad. Great game, great music! I just started part 2.
