So lore wise if the heart of Deimos dies... in General Discussion Posted August 3, 2020 · Edited August 3, 2020 by Fraggoth 8 hours ago, SignatureChewy said: For context, here's a few quotes from the Tennocon gameplay reveal: Loid- "Now you face an existential threat. If the heart stops beating, the wellspring of your power dies with it". Mother- "It pumps the arteries of 'the here' and the void. The Entrati family have maintained it for an age, but it's breaking down..." The void is something of a parallel dimension, and The Heart of Deimos is likely responsible for anchoring it to our own dimension. If the Void is like a river flowing past our dimension, the Heart is like a dam constricting its flow and establishing a reservoir for us to utilize. Whenever the Tenno use their void powers, it's like we're dipping a straw into that pool of void energy and siphoning a little bit. If the dam blows, the reservoir depletes, and we no longer have a pool to drink from. Not only would the Tenno be unable to use their powers, anything that uses void energy would cease functioning as well (warframe abilities, railjack jump drives, etc.). Anything stuck in the void, such as the ancient Orokin towers, would likely be "washed away" so to speak and become inaccessible. It's possible that we're already feeling the effects of the Heart's disrepair in the void fissures, which could be considered "leaks" in the dam forcing things back into our dimension as it collapses. This was pretty much my exact takeaway as well. A goofy alternative/extra twist that went through my mind would be that rather than everything that hooks into the Void just getting zilched, the Void instead/also consumes/supersedes the base reality the events and actions of Warframe take place in with a universe-eating cataclysm. This could tenuously be tied to the Duviri and Quills shenanigans, with that being an pivotal event in... whatever is going on there. Bonus points if it's a double-twist and that Void-superseding-"our"-reality event is actually desirable or necessary for "Duviri-plane-to-our-plane" interactions to occur.
