  • "The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown"

    人類最古老、也最強的情緒就是恐懼,而最強也最古老的恐懼,是對未知的恐懼

  • -H.P. Lovecraft

    H.P. Lovecraft

  • Our eyes are yet to open...

    我們的眼界需要開啟

  • Fear the old blood.

    恐懼舊神之血

  • These were the words spoken between Master Willem and Laurence.

    這是威廉大師和勞倫斯

  • From the cautious teacher to the ambitious student

    一個謹慎的老師和一個野心勃勃的學生的對話

  • Fear what you do not understand. Love the cuts and voice over

    畏懼你所不知

  • Fear the old blood.

    畏懼舊神之血

  • And so our story begins,

    於是我們的故事開始了

  • as you might have guessed, with blood, ancient blood.

    一如你猜的,從血、古老之血開始

  • Deep below the city of Yharnam lies the ancient underground labyrinth

    雅南城的地底下藏著蘇美魯迷宮

  • of Pthumeru. You know it as the Chalice Dungeons.

    也就是你所知的金盃迷宮

  • The old labyrinth was carved out by the Pthumerians,

    蘇美魯人打造了這座古老的迷宮

  • superhuman beings that are said to have discovered a sinister truth.

    據說超人類的存在在這裡發現了邪惡的事實

  • The hunters had another name for the labyrinth; they called it "The Tomb of the Gods,"

    獵人們也稱這座迷宮為"古神之墓"

  • for below, they found traces of godlike beings named "The Great Ones."

    他們在這裡發現了神般的存在─"上位者"

  • The Great Ones could function on transcendental planes of thought,

    上位者可以把"超越想像"

  • meaning they had elevated their consciousness beyond the physical realm.

    表示他們可以將意識提升到超越肉體的境界

  • The benefits of operating on this plane are unclear.

    這個作為的優點目前未知

  • Perhaps it was in the name of immortality, or perhaps power,

    或許可以讓他們不朽、獲得到力量

  • as even beyond, the Great Ones could interfere with beings and events in the waking world.

    或甚至讓他們干涉現實世界中的人、事

  • Whatever the case, it is clear that some sort of ascension took place,

    不論如何,基於種種"被遺留古神"的跡象

  • as there are numerous references to some Great Ones being left behind.

    這些上位者利用某種方法讓他們昇華了

  • Of all the strange life forms that reside in the nooks and crannies of the old labyrinth,

    生活在迷宮各個角落的異生物

  • the slugs are clear signs of the left-behind Great Ones.

    都是這些"遺留古神"存在的證據

  • One such Great One appears to be abandoned Ebrietas,

    例如伊碧塔斯

  • a left-behind being who apparently did not ascend with her brethren.

    一位顯然沒有提升她的思想的"被遺留古神"

  • One day, Ebrietas would be discovered by the humans above,

    有一天,地上的人們發現了伊碧塔斯

  • in a crusade that begins with a character named Willem.

    於是我們的一位重要角色─威廉就開始了一場"革命"

  • Master Willem presided over a prestigious place of learning,

    威廉大師主持當時有名的研究機構─拜爾金沃斯

  • Byrgenwerth. Situated by a tranquil lake and secluded within a gigantic forest,

    拜爾金沃斯坐落在深林中的湖畔

  • Byrgenwerth housed the minds that would change the world.

    孕育著會改變世界的思想

  • In fact, everything sacred in Yharnam came to be traced back to Byrgnwerth,

    事實上,在雅南發上的所有事情都得追溯到拜爾金沃斯

  • including the most influential characters within our story.

    包括幾個故事中最有影響力的角色

  • Bloodborne's lore is very character-driven and there are five who I'm going to help

    血源詛咒的故事非常角色導向

  • you become familiar with.

    其中有五個我們要熟悉一點

  • There was Master Willem, Runesmith Caryll, Laurence,

    有威倫大師、符文師卡羅、勞倫斯

  • Micolash, and Gherman. I'll introduce them to you in the order that they become

    密寇賴許和傑爾曼

  • relevant in the story.

    我會依照故事進程將他們介紹給你

  • As I said Master Willem was the head of the school

    如我所說,威廉是拜爾沃金斯的領導

  • at Byrgenwerth. The man was obsessed with the truth

    他深深受到迷宮中的"事實"吸引

  • and believed in pushing the limits of humanity.

    並相信可以藉此讓人類達到下一個極限

  • in almost every dialogue and description, Willem is referred to

    大部分的對話中,威廉都被稱為

  • as Master or Provost, clearly deserving of a great deal of respect.

    "大師"或"導師",顯然是受到極大的尊重

  • Many would eventually diverge from his tutorage but few can say

    許多人最後從威廉的教育中分出分枝

  • that they didn't owe everything to his research, for while Willem presided

    但他們很難否認他們在拜爾金沃斯時

  • over Byrgenwerth,

    沒有受到威廉的影響

  • the scholars there discovered terrific things in the tombs

    這些學者在雅南底下的墓穴中

  • below the city of Yharnam.

    發現了一些"駭人"的事實

  • Once a group of young Byrgenwerth scholars discovered a holy medium

    "一群拜爾金沃斯的年輕學者在墓穴深處

  • deep within the tomb. This led to the founding of the Healing Church

    發現了一個神聖的媒介。這個發現促使了治癒教會的成立

  • and the establishment of Blood Healing.

    和血療的發明

  • It's hard to be sure exactly what was found, but we do know it was related to

    我們很難確定他們到底發現了什麼,但可以確定這和上位者(和古神同義)

  • the Great Ones.

    有一定的關聯

  • On the ground floor of Byrgenwerth College we find the Pearl Slugs,

    我們在拜爾金沃斯教學樓的教學樓發現了珍珠蛞蝓

  • remnants of the great ones and at the very top of the college

    它被視為殘存的古神,而在頂樓

  • we find the Empty Phantasm Shell - an empty invertebrate shell

    我們發現了一個無脊椎動物的"空的幻象外殼"

  • that is said to be the familiar of a Great One.

    這個與古神相似的道具

  • After this discovery, whatever it was that showed them that the Great Ones

    這些發現都或多或少地證明古神確實存在

  • existed,

    00:03:37,830 --> 00:03:41,490拜爾金沃斯的學者因此對古神和古神之血的研究

  • the Byrgenwerth scholars launched an inquiry into the great ones

    自此之後

  • and the old blood; for from this point onwards

    這些學者在雅南的地下墓穴中發現的東西

  • there is an explosion of lore and history and references

    為歷史和我們的故事帶來爆炸性的成長

  • to what the scholars found in the tombs below Yharnam.

    大多和卡羅,我們的第二個角色有關

  • Many of these references come from Runesmith Caryll, the second character of our

    00:03:56,320 --> 00:03:59,930"卡羅將古神的非人類語言翻譯成了

  • story.

    我們所知的卡羅符文"

  • Caryll transcribed the inhuman utterings of the great ones

    H.P. Lovecraft的世界觀中

  • into what we now call Caryll Runes. In true

    人類是幾乎不能理解古神的語言的

  • Lovecraftian fashion, it is really likely that it's impossible for humans

    但卡羅顯然有某種能力將這些語言用圖形表達出來

  • to comprehend the speech of the great ones but Caryll

    得到符文的獵人可以記住他們

  • apparently had a knack, a talent for creating a visual representation

    並藉以達到增益

  • of the Great One's words. The hunter who receives this workshop tool

    威廉大師一定會替卡羅感到驕傲

  • can edge Caryll runes into their mind to attain their wondrous

    因為他並不依賴血液

  • strength. Provost Willem would have been proud of Caryll's runes,

    這告訴我們三件事:

  • as they do not rely upon blood in any measure.

    一、威廉和卡羅很親近

  • This statement is curious; it tells us three things:

    因為威廉會以卡羅為傲第二、威廉沒有機會以他為傲

  • first, Provost Willem and Caryll were close,

    這可能表示兩人斷了聯繫

  • as Willem would have been proud of him. And second, Willem

    第三也最重要的一點:

  • didn't have a chance to be proud, so it's possible that the two lost contact.

    威廉"因為"卡羅符文不依賴血液而以他為傲

  • And thirdly and most importantly, Willem

    換言之,威廉不贊成使用墓穴中發現的古神之血

  • would have been proud BECAUSE the runes did not rely on blood.

    "順時針變形"符文上說:找到舊神之血的瞬間

  • In other words, Willem did not approve the use of the old blood,

    也代表學者那『讓人類進化』的夢成為真實

  • the blood found in the Tomb of the Gods. The "Metamorphosis" rune states

    變形和接踵而來的超出和偏差也只是個開始"

  • "the discovery of blood made their dream of evolution a reality.

    然而,威廉選擇不同的路線

  • Metamorphosis, and the excesses and deviation that followed,

    他認為人類的眼界尚需開啟,因此需要得到更多靈視

  • was only the beginning." Willem believed in a different path.

    "眼睛"符文提到:"威廉大師向更高位面的存在

  • He believed in attaining more insight, for humanity's eyes

    尋求答案

  • had yet to open. The "Eye" rune states that 'Master Willem looked to beings from higher

    而他甚至犧牲掉自己的雙眼來讓自己的意識能夠提升

  • planes for guidance,

    根據這些敘述,你大概可以猜到這些角色在發現比人類更強大的存在後產生的勃勃野心

  • and sought to line his brain with eyes in order to elevate

    他們希望可以晉升為"神"

  • his thoughts. And with these descriptions, you should have some idea of the scale

    00:05:35,350 --> 00:05:41,920而人類的演化更上一層樓

  • of ambition of these characters, with the discovery of beings greater

    唯一的問題是該怎麼做?

  • than them

    用血或是靈視?這個問題後來

  • came a desire to ascend into Godhood, to push humanity

    造成拜爾金沃斯學者們的分裂

  • into its next stage of evolution. The only question was

    也是為什麼我們會在稍早聽到勞倫斯和威廉的道別

  • how? blood? Or insight? And this was a question that split the ranks of the

    (勞倫斯):威廉大師

  • Byrgenwerth scholars.

    我來向你道別了

  • It's how we arrived at the cutscene we started out earlier,

    (威廉):我知道

  • with Master Willem and Laurence parting ways. [LAURENCE]: "Master Willem,

    你現在要背叛我而去了

  • I've come to bid you farewell."

    在這個過場動畫中,我們可以推測勞倫斯是威廉的高階弟子

  • [WILLEM]: "Oh I know, I know.

    第一、因為他稱為威廉為"大師"

  • You think now to betray me"

    第二、威廉把勞倫斯看得很重,足以讓他認為勞倫斯的

  • From this cutscene, we can infer that Laurence was a high-ranking student of

    "離去"視為"背叛"

  • Master Willem because, firstly, Laurence refers to Willem as

    (勞倫斯):不,但你聽不下去的

  • 'master', and secondly, Willem clearly regards Laurence highly enough

    勞倫斯否認。他並不認為他的行為是背叛

  • to call this 'departure' a betrayal. [LAURENCE]: "No,

    我們可以在這裡理解他們的衝突點

  • but you will never listen." Laurence disagrees,

    正好就是遊戲中的兩大資源:血和靈視。

  • he does not see it as betrayal and here we come to the heart of what their

    威廉相信人類需要的是靈視和知識

  • disagreement is

    勞倫斯則主張血的力量

  • about. Essentially, it boils down to the difference

    勞倫斯試著說服威倫他會"恐懼就神之血"

  • between the two resources in the game. Willem believes man requires

    但這股畏懼不會阻止他使用血

  • insight and knowledge to ascend, Laurence believes in the power of blood.

    (勞倫斯):我說了,我不會忘記我們的古訓

  • Laurence attempts to reassure Willem, telling him

    (威倫):我們生於古神之血

  • he will always fear the old blood, but that this fear will not stop him using it

    藉著古神之血成長為人

  • [LAURENCE]: "I tell you, I will not forget our adage."

    最終也會被血毀滅

  • [WILLEM]: "We are born of the blood,

    我們的眼界需要開啟

  • made men by the blood,

    (齊聲):恐懼舊神之血

  • undone by the blood.

    (勞倫斯):我該走了

  • Our eyes are yet to open."

    00:07:21,660 --> 00:07:25,880勞倫斯和一群反叛者離開了拜爾金沃斯

  • [WILLEM and LAURENCE]: "Fear the Old Blood."

    並創立了治癒教會,威廉則留在拜爾金沃斯

  • [LAURENCE]: "I must take my leave."

    並試著將思想提升到更高的境界

  • Laurence

    他會在等一下回到故事中。所以在我告訴你勞倫斯接下來做了甚麼時

  • leaves the Byrgenwerth scholars, presumably with a small group of rebels

    00:07:38,680 --> 00:07:42,370想像威廉在拜爾金沃斯湖畔的搖椅上

  • and goes on to found the Healing Church. Willem

    想著怎麼得到靈視

  • remains at Byrgenwerth and attempts to elevate his thoughts to a higher plane.

    來提升思想

  • He will return to our story at a later time so, while I tell you of what Laurence

    勞倫斯的所作所為

  • went on to do,

    都奠基他在拜爾金沃斯得到的知識

  • imagine Willem here, in Byrgenwerth, sitting in his rocking chair

    我們更可以清楚地明白

  • over the lake, musing on how to acquire insight

    為什麼威廉會把勞倫斯的離去視為背叛

  • and elevate his thoughts to a higher plane. Everything Laurence would come to

    或許就是威廉將這些想法植在勞倫斯腦中的

  • achieve

    教學大樓的某紙條寫著:"威廉大師是對的

  • was based on the knowledge he had come by in Byrgenwerth. In retrospect, we

    沒有勇氣的進化將會是一個種族的句點"

  • clearly see

    勞倫斯充滿勇氣,但這份勇氣更接近傲慢

  • why Willem saw Laurence's departure as a betrayal. Perhaps Willem himself even

    拜爾金沃斯的學生制服提到:

  • planted these ideas in Laurence's mind.

    治療教會的根源來自於拜爾沃金斯

  • A note in the lecture hall reads: "Master Willem was right.

    甚至連學生制服都是直接抄襲。

  • Evolution without courage will be the ruin of our race."

    治療教會的學生完全不注重思考、知識,反而主張這些都是自己的發明

  • Laurence had courage, but it is likely that his courage

    不知道威廉大師知道後會有多失望

  • bordered on arrogance. The Byrgenwerth student uniform states:

    因此,勞倫斯將謹慎拋在腦後

  • "the Healing Church has its roots in Byrgenwerth, and naturally borrows

    全心投注研究舊神之血上想像在人類的歷史上

  • heavily from its uniform design.

    在任何時期,如果有一個教會擁有個方法

  • The focus, not on knowledge or thought, but on pure pretension

    可以治療所有疾病

  • would surely bring Master Willem to despair, if only he knew."

    而這個教會毫無限制地將這個方法提供給一個城市

  • So Laurence threw caution to the wind and put his faith

    這個城市會變得這多繁榮?這個教會又會多強大?

  • in the old blood. Think on human history;

    00:08:51,190 --> 00:08:55,580這就是在雅南發生的一切人們不惜千里來到這座城市

  • imagine if, in any era, a church was founded that had access to a substance

    接受奇蹟般的血療

  • that could cure any illness.

    雅南的居民也相信著治癒教會

  • Imagine if this church gave it freely to a city,

    然而,這一切也和在血被發現的地下墳墓中根本一樣

  • how powerful that city would become and how powerful the church would become

    00:09:09,500 --> 00:09:14,160如你所知,每個金盃迷宮都被可怕的怪獸"統治"著

  • within it.

    又尤其是羅蘭城

  • This is exactly what happened in Yharnam. People came far and wide

    羅倫城下層金杯寫道:

  • to be treated with the miraculous Blood of the Gods and the people of Yharnam put

    "在羅倫城中仍然可以找到一些關於治療道具、流程的蹤跡

  • their faith in the Healing Church.

    但這些蹤跡是否為了控制病情的擴大

  • In fact what happened in Yharnam is eerily similar to what happened

    或造成了病情的爆發,已經不得而知"衰弱的羅倫城金杯則說:

  • in the tombs deep below, where the blood was originally found.

    "當時發生在羅倫城的慘劇是野獸瘟疫

  • And as you know, many chalice dungeons, especially those of Loran

    甚至還有人大膽的假設:

  • are now overrun

    「下一個可能就是雅南」雅南的確是下個羅蘭城

  • by horrific beasts. The Lower Loran Chalice states:

    因為過度血療,雅南終於被野獸瘟疫壓垮

  • "there are trace remains of medical procedures in parts of ailing Loran.

    但在那之前,勞倫斯和治癒教會

  • Whether these were attempts to control the scourge of the beast,

    已經透過奇蹟般的血療和未被污染的血液

  • or the cause of the outbreak, is unknown." The Ailing Loran Chalice states:

    在城裡建立了不可撼動的地位

  • "the tragedy that struck this ailing land of Loran is said to have its root

    雅南因此成了崇拜但恐懼著教會的城市

  • in the scourge of the beast. Some have made the dreaded extrapolation

    當你經過這座城市,你將會發現教會的影響力無所不在

  • that Yharnam may be next." Yharnam WAS next.

    這個情況下

  • Through overuse of the healing blood, the city would eventually succumb

    勞倫斯有能力使治癒教會的規模遠超拜爾金沃斯

  • to the scourge of the beast. Until then though, Laurence and the Healing Church

    同時,他也繼續探索著雅南的地下迷宮

  • manage to grow in power, with the miraculous healing properties

    墓地勘探者套裝說:

  • of their special yet infected blood.

    "這套裝是治癒教會送給探索迷宮者的裝備

  • Yharnam grows to become a city of worship and fear.

    00:10:24,439 --> 00:10:28,790治療教會的根基在拜爾沃金斯,所以當然也很清楚這個古蹟中最珍貴的物件

  • As you explore throughout the city, you see the influence of the Church everywhere.

    他們從迷宮中得到的東西遠遠比探索者得到的獵人紋章、黃金還珍貴

  • With Yharnam's resources, Laurence clearly had the power

    因為他們利用可以看到古神的靈視

  • to grow the Church beyond what would have been possible at Byrgenwerth

    來把所有關於古神的秘密全私藏起來"

  • All the while he continued exploring the labyrinth below Yharnam

    於是勞倫斯把教會分成數個分支來達到不同的目的

  • The tomb prospector set reads:

    有聖歌團、曼西斯學院和獵人工坊

  • "Attire of the tomb prospectors who explore the old labyrinth on behalf of

    我們會在適當的時機一一介紹些分支

  • the Healing Church

    但至少對雅南人而言

  • The Healing Church traces its roots to Byrgenwerth and is therefore aware

    教會的功用是進行血療

  • of the ruins' true importance. These ruins contain much more than hunter trinkets,

    大教堂區中有張字條寫著:

  • indeed, they hide the very secrets of the old Great Ones

    "血之儀式的繼承者-同時也是血療街的經營人

  • sought-after by those with the insight to imagine greatness"

    請你將手放到祭壇的神聖血液上

  • On top of this, Laurence split the Church into multiple branches, each with a different purpose.

    並銘記勞倫斯大師的格言在你血肉中"

  • There was the Choir, the School of Mensis and the Workshop.

    而血療師同時也是教會的血之祭司

  • We'll get to these branches as they become appropriate

    為什麼雅南人會如沉醉血液?

  • but the main purpose of the Church, at least to the people of Yharnam

    "在雅南血生產的比酒還多

  • was the administration of blood healing

    因為前者更讓人陶醉"

  • Within the Grand Cathedral itself lies a note that says:

    然而,治療教會仍然在試著和古神溝通

  • "Heir to the ritual of blood, purveyor of ministration

    而血療只是達成人類進化的手段

  • Place your hand upon the altar's sacred covering and inscribe Master Laurence's

    00:11:33,280 --> 00:11:36,370而這正是聖歌團的任務

  • adage upon your flesh

    聖歌團是治療教會的另一個分支

  • Blood ministers would have been those who administered the blood healing

    裡頭的成員都是教會的高階聖職員

  • How else would the people of Yharnam be so obsessed with blood?

    同時是治療教會的高階祭司和來自拜爾沃金斯且繼續工作的學者

  • In Yharnam, they produced more blood than alcohol

    從其遮住眼睛的帽子設計可以不難看出:他們仍然受惠於威廉大師的教導並感到虧欠

  • as the former is more intoxicating

    即便他們走上不同道路

  • However, the ministration of blood was likely a means to an end,

    穿著黑白相間又把眼睛遮住的聖歌團

    伊碧塔斯是棲息在大教堂底層的遺留古神

  • even though their paths diverged.

  • The Choir, garbed in black and white with the familiar eye covering,

    如果治癒教會真的用著古神之血

  • occupied the Upper Cathedral Ward

    誰能說那不是伊碧塔斯的血?

  • It seems to have been their job to research and make contact with the Great Ones

    伊碧塔斯的預兆是聖歌團和治療教會高層的秘密特權

  • The Great Isz Chalice became the cornerstone of the Choir,

    也被治療教會的第二個分支

  • Ebrietas was the left behind Great One who came to reside

  • We are told that the Grand Cathedral is the birthplace of

    如名所示

  • the Healing Church's special blood.

    曼西斯是治療教會中專門學習、研究和實驗的機構

  • And if the church were indeed using the blood of the Great Ones,

    曼西斯學生服說道:

  • then who's to say it wasn't Ebrietas' blood?

    "治癒教會和拜爾金沃斯有很深的淵源
