Bopen And The Azveltarian Are Part of The Order of Chaos
The elves blame the Beenu for causing Phanto's death, which caused the Birth of Magic. Except there's one thing the elves don't know; We donated to have Phanto die. Lyn pulled genocide on the Beenu as a punishment for creating The Birth of Magic. She sees the bird people as the very gods who killed the dragon aspect, in turn causing almost everything in this world we've all come to love to happen. This punishment seemed very cruel especially considering the Beenu seemingly did nothing.
Exactly. We donated to kill Phanto, the Beenu were innocent. The elves caused that massive bloodbath we saw as punishment for what they thought they had done. During that genocide scene, the chat was blowing up, saying how they hated Lyn so much. Some saying that Bopen was better than her. Ironic because if chat hadn't donated to kill Phanto, that wouldn't have happened. It's almost like a sign. A message. A punishment.
A punishment for the Gods.
In this game, the chat donators take on the role as the Old Gods. The Old Gods were born before the Realms were even created. Everything that has happened due to a donation was done by these Old Gods. So when Lyn killed all the Beenu, it was almost like the world telling us that we screwed up.
Let's take a step back.
"We meet again, yet still for the first time,
Tomorrow I join a New Crew, then next day a terrible crime.
You had your chance to follow my path,
But you chose The Law, instead of blood bath.
You create those like me when you over extend,
Sins burned into flesh that cause us to ascend.
We feel you when you watch, 'Brutality' is your name,
To you, the gods above, this is simply all a game.
And so enjoy your story, the one you picked over me,
She will turn on you soon friend, just wait and you see.
We are the Order of Chaos, born from your Sins,
Our Vision, your gift, our Body, your skins."
-Maelstrom, from the 'The Skeleton King'
Maelstrom was talking to no player when he said this. He was talking to the chat. Because, as he says in the rhyme, he can feel when we are watching. So let's review what's going on. After going over everything, I have come to one conclusion.
EVERY DONATION EVENT WE'VE EVER HAD HAS TURNED OUT BADLY!
WE donated to have Maelstrom join The New Crew, and in turn we caused Jo Krystall's death.
WE donated to have Gwyneth's unborn child killed.
WE donated to have 4 characters watch as their families die in cold blood.
Some donations did not look this way when we donated to them. For example, when we saw a donation titled "The Painful Twist" we didn't expect Dave to die because of it! No matter what we do, every donation event turns out bad. Even things like giving Chilly Wizzy a goddamn coat backfired when Khn'-rell stole this coat.
All of these outcomes happened to punish us for what we've done, which was setting off the donation events. To us, the Gods above, this is all only a game. We can assume from Maelstrom's rhyme and the translated elven text at the end of Azveltara Z that the Sandbolds do indeed work for the Order of Chaos. I'll explain more about this later.
In The Skeleton King, the Sandbolds come out of nowhere. Nobody sees them, only we can see them, on the meta level. Right before the Sandbolds appear, there was a donation event that made some young Kobalds appear which the characters proceed to try killing. But the Sandbolds save them, they stopped a donation event from going bad. The Order of Chaos prevented that donation event from playing out.
They punished us. In a way, Lyn killing the Beenu was a "punishment for the Gods." But wait, wasn't Bopen a "weapon used to punish the Gods" as well? Does this mean that Bopen also exists to oppose us? And in turn, does that mean a donation event caused Bopen to exist?
The Beenu, near extinction, somehow knew that we had caused the Birth of Magic, and not them. So they tried to create some way of letting the elves know that the Old Gods exist, and they caused the Birth of Magic.
"Interlopers, you have ventured too deep into these halls. This is a place that is damned by the malediction of time. The oversight of my fathers has doomed this entire realm. Your existence is meaningless when the minutes that pass curse you to forever be forgotten. To seek status. To build a legacy. To be remembered when time will erase all words, is an error. The moon has fallen, how long before the sun does too? How long before this realm comes to an end? Even now as you watch. As you listen. Your life in this realm, in your own world, slips away. You may seek immortality, but even the gods cannot defeat the passage of the hour. And if even the gods can perish, if the worlds, the stars, the sun and the moon can die, what hope do you have?
Do you not realize you are but mere characters in a story? Do you not look around you and wonder who might be peering into your lives. Who might be listening? Who might be watching?
Existence in a dimension with time is meaningless. Your reality is tied to the lifeforce of your creators who bound by their dimensional limitations of time, can only bend yours by spending theirs. Your lives are tied to the wealth and power of but a few Divine who throw gold to watch you dance. They smirk at your misery. They cry out to watch you feel pain. Should they grow tired of this realm. Should they fall to the flow of hours themselves. Then your world will be all, but erased. I warned them of this demand, but they ignored me. Just like you have arrived here to listen to my words, their curiosity has awaken an ugly truth. A truth they now wish they could unlearn. A truth that even they deep down know they themselves are tied too.
Death is your only ending.
Choose it wisely."
-Warmachine, from "Unexpected Discovery"
The Beenu created this message in the warmachine hoping to prove to the world that the Old Gods were controlling everything, but it fell on deaf ears. It was too late, the Beenu had already been diminished. The message was disguised as a normal donation event, to attract the Old Gods, making it look like it would just instantly kill the warmachine and play some music for the rest of the scene, but it wasn't that simple.
There are 2 specific donations that stand out from the rest, one was in Okagnoma Guild Hall and one was in Den of Devils. The former prevented one death roll, thus saving Lola Van Dynch's life. The second was similar, using time travel to save the life of Lunk. Like the rest of them, these acts didn't go unpunished. The 2 saved characters were then marked with a sin. A Sin of the Unforgotten.
Onto the Order Of Chaos and its involvement in all of this. The Order of Chaos is a group of... things, that know about the Old Gods and their effect on this realm. They know that they are all characters in a story to us, and to us, this is only a game. So we can kill people and make things happen, just by setting off these donation events. The Order of Chaos doesn't like this. THEY want to be the ones in charge of their own fate. As it is, we control their fate. Chimera and Galin were both there at the end of Buckeroos, but we were the only ones deciding which one of them won. To us, this world is only a game, but to them, it's their reality. And they want to stop us, and take fate back into their own hands. They do it in ways that make us regret everything we do, like eliminating the Beenu or enraging a boss so they kill our favorite characters.
The Azveltarian only serve as a weapon by them. They do things that will purposefully upset chat. Now we can get onto Bopen. Members of the Order are born from our sins. But we can predict what happens in future campaigns based off what they say. For example, Maelstrom said "She will turn on you soon, just wait and you'll see." From this we can assume in a future campaign there will be a donation event that causes some character we already know to betray us, and had been 'evil' all along. Not only that, we can assume that this unnamed donation will undoubtedly be met, and play out just like Maelstrom said.
"Someone" created Bopen as a "weapon to punish the Gods." He may or may not have been caused by a donation event, or a donation event we haven't seen yet, or a Divine Decision. But Bopen definitely is not one with the Order. He doesn't seem to know about the Old Gods. However, in the first act of the Fall of Dundenborough, there was a donation event that told us the story of Bopen. The story mentioned that the gods gave him his power, including a ring that would ensure him to be king someday. And in turn, because this event was reached, we inadvertently caused Bopen to gain that power that he may not have had had we not reached that donation goal.
So, both the Beenu and the Order of Chaos knew about the existence of the Old Gods. However, they have different views on it. The Beenu warmachine says "Should they grow tired of this realm. Should they fall to the flow of hours themselves. Then your world will be all, but erased." Meaning that if the fans grow tired of URealms Live, the world will cease to exist. So even though the Old Gods cause very terrible stuff on the Realms, the Beenu acknowledge that they wouldn't exist without them.
The Order of Chaos has a very different approach on it. They perceive us as cancers on the Realms, that must be rid of before they destory everything.
TL;DR: The chat who donates to cause events in the game are the Old Gods. Every scene that makes us feel sad, we should actually be feeling regret because they were all caused by a donation event, thus caused by the Old Gods. The Order of Chaos wants to stop the Old Gods from corrupting the world. Bopen was supposed to oppose the Old Gods, but he doesn't. Sins of The Unforgotten are BAD.
