  1. Are you sure the god-gnawed priest didn't turn into Hiravius? He sort of fits the description.
  2. Truthfully, it doesn't even have to be smart. It just has to have enough different attack patterns, strengths, and weaknesses that you can't utilize the same strategy for every battle. That is, it doesn't matter whether the enemy is smart, so long as it forces the player to be smart.
  3. You'll romance Durance, and you'll like it. And if I hear any complaining, you'll get downgraded to Anomen. I'll take Anomen. He doesn't look half bad, so I can gag him and tie him up to make him sufferable, while Durance has absolutely no attractive qualities whatsoever. Hey, Durance has a sense of humor, albeit a filthy one as befits him.

  5. Complaining that your characters can only see maybe fifty feet, tops, in open terrain in broad daylight is like saying Tetris has too many blocks? Wha?
  6. Well, the initial companion arcs are pretty familiar; you, your dog, and three friends you met (and Durance) are traveling down the same road together, seeking answers from a powerful Wiz... err, Watcher, who lives in a castle with this whole green rock theme. As for your own reasons, well, you got smacked by a windstorm so hard you're in a completely different world (sort of), and you want to go back home, metaphorically. A kindly wi... err, animancer points you in the direction of the Watcher as someone who can help. But the Watcher turns out to be a disappointment, blah blah blah, and you learn that the all-powerful entities you encountered and sought aid from are actually a sham concocted by a guy from the same nation you came from back in the day, and everyone learns a valuable lesson about looking inside themselves for answers/strength/whatnot.
  7. Take a left out of... Searing Falls, I think? Aside from Persoq, there isn't much there aside from a loot cave and a bounty, so it's easy to miss.
  8. I take exception to "all the backers". I didn't say anything on that issue. (Or most others, to be honest.) OTOH, special loot (anyone has a similarly cool name for that?) always feels like the game master / developers cheating. "In lieu of doing AI to make things harder, we just give our Xaurips spears+3. No, you can't loot them." Or: "We made this very cool bad guy who wears really nice armour. No, we didn't make it wearable, and its armour class travels at the speed of plot. Also, it won't turn up as loot, of course." It's annoying both ways. Special loot is annoying, sure, but it could be justified -- e.g. the item is powered by the user's soul rather than an intrinsic enchantment, so in the hands of anyone unworthy or untrained, it's just a normal or uselessly magical item. I sort of feel like that would even be a good approach for having some class abilities that are tied to an item (say, a set of paladin abilities based in the use of a particular relic venerated by the Paladin's order, like a Holy Avenger).
  9. Your character is a Watcher, surely they of all people would be able to clearly see inner beauty and all that. Your response sparked writers gold for any game writer who wants to use this. This is clever actually. So you would make two versions of the female companion: In the normal physical world she is ugly & mannish, but when you use your watcher powers to peer into her soul, you are treated to her ethereal representation in which she is drop dead gorgeous, beautiful. How she looks in spirit form is similar to a super model, because she is beautiful on the inside. This would satisfy a straight male gamers need to see a beautiful woman, but also take a step back to understand that on the outside she is not attractive. But then Jack Black would steal her away from you. :`(
  10. Yeah, it's the detours and dead ends that make relationships in drama interesting. And if they did do romances, there should definitely be potential to flirt with a character only to be told "Let's not make things weird. We're trying to save the world here."
