A quick question on the jellies..

PostSat Aug 27, 2016 7:55 am

Are humans (and other self aware species) that are being used as hosts for the jellies,actually aware of what they are doing,or is the parasites control over the host total?

I believe the implication is that the host is at least somewhat aware, which is what leads to a certain twitchiness as the host tries to act alone. It is also part of what leads to the breakdown and erratic behavior seen in Aged Ones, as the parasite's control weakens, and the host's madness starts to affect things.

The host is fully aware, but the Scourge's control over them is total. The twitching is only present in hosts whose Scourge parasites are starting to reach the end of their lives and dying, gradually relinquishing control to the host, who after nearly 200 years or so under the Scourge's control, is very much insane.

Imagine being used as a puppet for that long, while being fully aware of what happens to you. You're gonna be pretty insane.
