Slight correction on the theory: Leshy wasn’t chosen by Kaycee specifically, he just happened to find the OLD_DATA first and used it to take control of the game. P03 does the same thing with the Dredger which is how he gains control in the third act. Ultimately not playing is still the correct answer. Beating Leshy allows the other Scrybes the chance to find the data first and take control.

@Just a fluff ball the explanation the arg disc found was that kaycee specifically chose leshy to be in control cause if the game was ever found he would try to keep it in its altered form. its called kaycee mod cause its the version of the game kaycee manipulated into existence. If it wasn't as a result of her manipulation why on earth would it be called kaycee mod? The angler also mentioned that he once caught the OLD_FISH (OLD_DATA), and gave it to leshy. How come he never caught it again? because the rest of the characters cant actually access the file, kaycee specifically allowed him access to it.

@MoonlitxAngel Except we have confirmation she didn't. In the official update called Kaycee mod it states she reloaded the game to find it changed itself leaving Leshy in charge. She had no control over that aspect.

I saw something listed in information that breaks down the ARG that mentioned Kaycee chose Leshy to act as a guard for the OLD_DATA, so I'm pretty sure he's correct and he's in control because of Kaycee. She was a game dev after all. Wouldn't surprise me if she intentionally allowed him to have control so that the other three couldn't try and take over. At bare minimum, there's no way she'd just leave it to random chance and hope.

Leshy was also described by magnificus as a simple beast, making sense why he only cares about playing cards. In all honesty, everything started to fall apart because we chose to trust the other Scrybes and help them twart him.

You never realize how useful the Stoat is until you play Kaycee's Mod, where the Stoat is a 1|1/2 instead of a 1|1/3 For reference, the Bullfrog is a 1|1/2, but with Sigil of Mighty Leap.

@Actual Pie thanks. But I already found out by now. It's quite fun. But the sigil that creates a copy of a card when you play it, insanely broken. Add the one where the card is summoned when another card dies, full board forever. I added both to the ant queen, and by chance also got the tentacle that gets stronger based on the card in your hand. Killed the moon in 2 or 3 turns. So basically... ALWAYS get the rats

Did you know that the background text in the final fragment is in Polish? Leshy is a demone / god of the forest from Slavic mythology, so it's no wonder - one of the creators is probably Polish. Before the next episode, I would recommend you to hire a Polish translator ... or google translate 😉

@Revenant Proxy Ah, and there is also the Blue Man. It is mentioned in the conversation with the Trader in the third act. The Blue Man is a creepypasta character (and perhaps folklore - I'm not sure) bringing misfortune to anyone who interacts with him ... Just like Old Data. Really fits the game lore.

@Revenant Proxy Yea. Jersey Devil is a yeti-like and bigfoot cryptid. The Long Horse is a creature created by Trevor Henderson for his world. Mothman is a cryptid / folklore from West Virginia, although most know it from popular horror movie. I hope that if creators want to release the next part of the game, they will refer to folklore again. Slavic folklore. Why? Because there is a character (my favorite) who contains the horror of the dark forest (like Leshy), magic (like Magnificus), extensive knowledge about the world that goes far beyond the typically human understanding (like P03) and power over death / necromancer skills (like Grimora)....And lives in REALLY cool cabin ;)

Honestly, I think it was destined. Everyone else knew they were through. Grilles accepted her actions, Leshy got one last game in with someone her probably considers a friend- but Magnificus had HUBRIS. Dude saw he was going out and instead of accepting it like Grimora he tried to pull this huge Yu-Gi-Oh knockoff. His intentions might have been well but it was no one’s fault but his own.

What I really found interesting was how there was a powerful blue triangle that helped Kaycee make the game (according to the lore cards), and in Gimora’s domain Kaycee was killed by ice, and her sprite has the ‘ice’ in her head, in the form of a blue triangle.

All I can think of (considering the high quality of the 3D models that are used in the game) is that it’s possible that GameFuna made a high-capacity (for a floppy) data storage device that looks like a floppy disk (do we know if Luke used an actual floppy drive?). Either that or OLD_DATA has something to do with it (it’s pretty blatantly supernatural in nature, who’s to say it’s not messing with the floppy itself?).

Inscryption's beginning was really cool! And then it went beyond and started up with its... LORE and BACKGROUND and PLOT TWISTS... and really went down the toilet, in my opinion.

@Godlyvex5 Maybe… i just don’t understand why they would have the asset for a different room though.

@Andy Lugo In that case it's probably a bug. No sane person would click continue after grabbing the new game button. That's probably how it was never found.

Joey: "Hey Yug. How was that game O got you?" Yugi: "Oh, well, I got it to work and it's honestly not that different from Duel Monsters. Although the AI was really creepy." Joey: "You think it might be haunted?" Yugi: "If it is, then I don't think we should continue." Joey: "I think I know somebody dumb enough to play this for us."

MatPat: "Leshy is the best softlock in Inscryption" A certain boss in Act 3: "Hold my custom rules spawning infinite L33pbots"

@Kamen Kuma I love the fact that this boss has no many different names lol. I've heard "Artist", "Canvas", "Painter", and now "Lawmaker"

To be honest, the Lawmaker was the best boss from act 3 due to their gimmick.

That's actually the best rule if you pick the right ones to go with it. You can set it up so that it only plays L33pbots when you play something, like, say, an Empty Vessel, thus blocking him from being able to play anything until you play something that can actually do damage and kill a L33pbot.

Here's the real question: Grimora would delete everything, and P03 would share it with the world. Leshy just wants to play cards, but that still leaves us with Magnificus. What does HE want?

I wish the first part of the game was a but longer. I got a super-op combo on like my forth run, but that first act is the best imo

Fun fact: on my first Round with leshy I came extremely far. Then it happened in the angler fight. His eyes turned red as two simples sentences appeared in a soft red "Too fast. Too soon." As soon as those words were spoken grizzlys appeared. So so many grizzlys. They blocked every path. They were ruthless. They eliminated absolutely everything and cost the player their last life. Leshy...or whoever had control in that moment didn't appreciate that you went farther than you're supposed to. And so as you awake at the table once again, confused as to what happened everything began again. Thank you for reading : )

Thanks to Kaycee's mod we now know that Kaycee discovered the angler having the old data out while working on the game and, thus, did not choose for him to be in charge

Kaycee didn't leave Leshy in charge. In part 2, the fisherman tells you he made Leshy very happy because he caught the "old_fish." Also, when you're in the wizard's tower, you can move into the corners on some floors and will pass through a secret doorway. One of them puts you in a room with a giant DOD id hanging there of that guy from the redacted files.

As much as we despise Leshy for keeping us trapped and seemingly keeping the whole game hostage, his version really was the best... And Kaycee thought so too apparently, what with her own mod essentially promoting Leshy's game to be THE game 🤔
