Who is the "Host" of the Hunter's Nightmare? Discuss Bloodborne and Yharnam lore, theories, beasts and the secrets of the land.
First I think it it's imperative to ask if the word "host" is really the correct term in the context of the post. However, I've heard it said that the term is more to reference these characters as you would the front man of an event rather than the mind responsible for allowing the construction of those realms. However for the sake of my hypothesis I'm going on the assumption of the latter argument. One theory the one I particularly subscribe tois that Gehrman host's the nightmare as well as the Hunter's Dream.
What's your take on this? I'm often on the opposite end of popular opinion asking one question: "By whose standards? A sacred heirloom left by Yharnam, Pthumerian Queen. The Queen lies dead, but her horrific consciousness is only asleep, and it stirs in unsettling motions.
Rakuyo Insomniac. I don't recall Gehrman being referred to as the host of anything, but it's heavily implied that he's the host of The Hunter's Dream. But I must admit that I, nor anyone else, really knows the specifics behind being a "Host of The Nightmare".
I love the idea of Yharnam being involved with the dreams. How to go about compiling evidence to support it is a whole other thing entirely though. It does make me think about her presence a bit differently though. And Rakuyo I guess you're right Gehrman is never explicitly references are being the host of the Hunter's Dream.
Only the caretaker, and in a game full of semantics that's an important distinction to keep clear. Which brings up a good point about the origins of the dreams and nightmares: Im Your Nightmare - The Brains - Drunk Not Dead we think Orphan conceived the Hunter's Nightmare, and The Moon Presence conceived the Hunter's Dream, do we think the Brain of Mensis is what created the Mensis Nightmare?
And if we think all these things are true are the Amygdala simply "taxi" services to get from the waking world to the other plains assuming the great ones cannot cross into another's realm.

It makes sense the Nightmare would be too, and we find the Macguffin to access it in the Dream but access it through an Amygdalaso who knows? TokeZen Joined: Sun May 20, pm.
TokeZen 4. Wouldn't Hunter's Nightmare imply that your character is the host? Since the game can't really use your chosen name and the nightmare is a malformed version of the world you have already traversed and even the Cleric Beast makes some kind of re-appearance in the form of a very similarly looking boss, then it would make some sense.
You are snatched away into your own, personal nightmare, where all the pleb enemies are replaced by hunters hunting you and you even get to fight a boss that is very similar to the first one, that gave you so much trouble in the beginning of the game. Not to mention, all the enemies are more Skatin - Poco - The Very Best Of Poco than in the base game and the map is quite confusing.
Just a theory though. SaffeusRazheius Joined: Tue Jun 19, pm. SaffeusRazheius 7. It seems to me that the Orphan of Kos is the host of the Hunter's Nightmare. My evidence is that when you defeat it, it gives you "Nightmare Slaughtered" instead of the usual "Prey Slaughtered.
These are both final bosses, and both offer some way to end the nightmare once you kill them. So, Orphan of Kos is my best bet. I think about it that way too. The only problem with that is that killing Micolash the only confirmed Host of a Nightmare does not give you Nightmare Slain.

To me, this means that Mergo is hosting Mensis Micolash into its nightmare, so Micolash would be a host. Ой, с вечера, с полуночи - Хор Имени Пятницкого* - Популярные Русские Песни the same reasoning, the same can be applied to the Hunter's Dream too as the Moon Presence is hosting Gehrman and the hunters Im Your Nightmare - The Brains - Drunk Not Dead its realm.
As for the Hunter's Nightmare, it seems that the concept of "hosting" would be more like "trapping" as blood-drunk hunters don't actually visit that realm, but get more like "sucked" Full Penetration - The Sexual Objects - Cucumber it by the curse.
My 2 cents.
