When playing around with the game my hearthlings mention Cid here and there so I was wondering is Cid some form of god or is he someone they worship?
to my knowledge Cid is a god like being, but i never really learned much about that stuff…
I just assume they’re talking about that airship builder/technician from the Final Fantasy universe, honestly.
Gods you say? Looks like some Stonehearth backstory…
Ask @Turtlesquish. He knows the lore better than most, due to his long periods of study on the Stonehearth universe.
I always thought that Cid might be the player himself
You mean that guy who named his airship the enterprise?
In every single final fantasy games there is a character called Cid, the character is always good, and normally considered wise. I believe in stonehearth the character Cid is a “tip of the hat” to the final fantasy games, and is an inventor of some renown.
Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar (c. 1043 – 1099) was a Castilian nobleman and military leader in medieval Spain. He was called El Cid (the Lord) by the Moors and El Campeador (the Champion) by Christians. He is the otherwise real but made legendary national hero of Castile. He was born in Vivar, a town near the city of Burgos.
I’m with this cid! Brings me back to Age of Empires 2
Haha yes! I loved that campaign
According to most sources (Stephanie strongly hinted to it) Cid is a prophet, and is the role model of the hearthlings. With that in mind a lot of the phrases relevant to Cid make sense.
In dreams.json Cid is the ‘teacher’ of The Ascendancy. The Ascendancy are apparently the default player faction.
if this is the case… i suggest the devs add a hero called Cid? to the game…
Or (if too much coding hasn’t already been done?) we could eventually have a lord/king/whatever we have to keep alive etc etc by building a fortress… not allowing him to be killed (one game over scenario) etc… and call him… Cid
Cid seems to be strongly associated with a Church of Plenty that the Ascendency seem to follow. He[?] is also associated with ladders, as many dreams of ladders were previously recorded as visions of Cid. By this I mean back when the dialogue was shown on the main GUI.
Some journals from the famed engineer Payten that have not yet been revealed publicly indicate that many of the Ascendency’s traditions are in honor of Cid, though few seem to know why, and no one ever explains.
