  1. For me, hampering of the Watcher isn't really necessary. I just wanted the point driven home more that the Watcher was suffering in some way. As a motivation. I know the game lets us choose our motivation in some conversations, but the only things that really felt important to me was the Hollowborn and later stopping Woedicas ascent. Perhaps more narrated cut scenes where the suffering of the Watcher is explained in more detail. Like the narration between acts. This would be especially useful in the beginning to hammer the point home, and then less frequent as the game progressed.
  2. Edér first, then Durance. Both very well written and acted. I also liked that they were completely different from each other.
  3. So what types of negative effects would have been acceptable for you guys to get us to care about being a fragmenting Watcher? Horrible nightmares in a more visual way?

And the story progressed everything fell more in to place though, especially since the two things melded together, and I really loved the story up to and including the ending. Certainly there are things that didn't work as well as others so I'll do a short list of what I found less good: Iovara and the
  6. Galawain. Because it was the right thing to do. The horrors of the Legacy could not be undone either way, what was done was done and nothing could change that. The only moral and rational thing to do was to strengthen those who lived. If you look backwards, you will act accordingly and thus move backwards as well. Best thing to do was to make the best of a horrible situation and look forward.
