So... Are we ready yet to talk about how P03 was technically a good guy, or is this a conversation for another day?
(Inscryption spoilers below the cut, please be aware!)
I mean, think about it... He obviously doesn't know the full extent of what the OLD_DATA is - actually it seems like none of the Scrybes are entirely sure of what it is other than the fact it's something absolutely unspeakably awful - so from his perspective, The Great Transcendence is literally just ensuring that he - and the rest of the world of Inscryption - doesn't get wiped out permanently.
It's not unreasonable to assume he'd know about the plan to just delete everything; it seems like something all the Scrybes knew about to at least some extent. And I'm not saying I don't understand why Grimora and Magnificus were scheming to delete the entire game world in an attempt to get rid of the OLD_DATA (as was shown in the letter in Magnificus's place,) but think about it from the perspective of someone living in that world; and also, think about it from the perspective of someone who'd already been made to suffer and experience dying at the hand of one of their peers over and over again. It's pretty understandable that someone who was made into a pawn by a fellow Scrybe wouldn't want to literally permanently die after all that suffering; it's pretty understandable that they'd want to do everything they could not to suffer again.
And I mean... I'm not gonna try and white-knight P03 here: I love him, but he's not exactly the kindest robot in the world, clearly. But, it's shown that he's actually well-liked by the workers in his factory, and he liked the Dredger enough - or at least respected his hard work enough - to make him an NPC in Botopia...
So with that in mind, is it really that much of a stretch to say that The Great Transcendence wasn't some kind of selfish and evil decision, and was a genuine attempt by P03 - who had suffered countless times over, and didn't know the full extent of how awful the OLD_DATA that would've also been uploaded to the internet was - to save himself and everyone and everything else from permanent deletion?
Leshy - uses people as pawns in an eternal game of death and suffering for them by keeping them alive and forcing them to fight
Grimora and Magnificus - plot to delete the entire world (albeit for well-intentioned reasons) and actually succeed in doing so
P03 - also uses people as pawns in a game of death and suffering for them by keeping them alive and forcing them to fight but is actively trying to ensure that the world lives on in some way and - according to the ARG - actually succeeds in doing so... though most likely, the OLD_DATA came along too
No hate to the other Scrybes, I enjoy them a lot too, but... P03's villainy doesn't seem like villainy to me; to me, he seems like someone who was ill-informed about the OLD_DATA and yes, wasn't exactly a nice guy and absolutely wanted to lord it over everyone, but was genuinely trying to do something good by ensuring that the world was uploaded to the 'real world' and not deleted forever.
That cutscene from The Court quest in the venthyr covenant where everything is the same but Renathal snaps, socks the Tithelord in the nose and the two get into a fist fight.
