    You know, I don't know why I don't see more of the anti-PC romance people complaining about Gjefa. You know, the sex worker from the Salty Mast who, if you have 19 CON or higher, will be so impressed with your performance that she'll quit her job and move into your quarters at Caed Nua to have sex with you as much as you want for free for the rest of her life.

    Does this work if Watcher is female? :w00t:

    Yes. None of the sex workers acknowledge your gender at all.

    What!? Is that true? People don't complain becaues they don't know!!

     

    I mean, hookers are kind of a waste of money in RPGs, so who actually tests this stuff?

    I hope you can save Gjefa at the start of Deadfire, if you recruited her. She deserves better.

    Save her from yourself?

     

    Anyway if they have a romance that is this obscure I don't think any of us would complain.

    I meant eothas stomping around nomming on souls. I doubt anyone besides you and the Stewart walk away but I hope you can save the named characters that live there like Gjefa and Korgak.

  3. Oh, since I failed to address this in my previous posts:

     

    List of attractive female companions in PoE1: Iselmyr, Sagani, Grieving Mother, Pallegina, Maneha, Devil of Caroc

     

    List of attractive female companions in Deadfire: Iselmyr, Pallegina, Maia, Xoti, Ydmir(?)

     

    You might be asking "Hey, isn't that the list of all the female companions?" And the answer is YES EVERY LAST ONE OF THEM IS ATTRACTIVE WHAT THE ****ING HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU!?

    Ok seriously now... is this Fulvano guy for real????

     

    Spoiler: Fulvano is the final boss. He's sitting on a throne in the deepest room in a castle on the last island. When you reach him, he'll be like "Hahaha! You have done well to make it this far! But now I shall personally dispose of you!!"

     

     

    in an ironic twist, kiting is the most effective strategy against him

     

     

    Or just stand near the entrance. He just keeps running back and forth from his throne to the middle of the room for some reason.

     That's why he's so angry when he finds out that Magran intended for him to die with the other makers of the Godhammer. Like all toxic men, he believes he's entitled to his reward after making what he perceived as the necessary payments, and Magran's intention to never repay him is a betrayal. Like all misogynist ****s, his thoughts turn not to self-reflection, but to vengeance for his perceived wrongs.

     

    Yes, Durance is totally a Nice Guy to Magran. At least, that's how I interpreted it.

     

     

    I'm sorry but isn't this a little bit ridiculous? "perceived wrongs"? Trying to kill someone is wrong. You're reading a bunch of entitlement into him being mad about his goddess who he devoted his life to wanting him dead. I'm not saying he doesn't believe he is entitled to a reward from her but I don't see how your explanation for his anger at her works or is even needed. 

     

     

    Well, he sure uses a lot of gendered insults. Not "that backstabbing ****" or "treacherous wench", it's all aboard the whore train with him.

     

    Frankly, I'm more surprised at the naivety of devising a god-killing weapon, then being surprised that your god wants to eradicate all knowledge pertaining to how such things are made (including, well, you).

     

     

    Yeah i'm not saying he is not a sexist, or that he isn't entitled. Just him being mad about that specific thing seems perfectly reasonable. You don't have to be entitled to be mad someone stabbed you in the back and literally tried to kill you, even if you are a terrible person who probably deserves it. 

     

     

    I'd agree with you, except, it's not what I saw in that scene. If the attempt to kill him had been another test, Durance would have gladly accepted it and tried to conquer it. He didn't see a test, he finally saw that Magran was never going to give him what he wanted, no matter how much he begged and tortured himself for her. That's why I don't believe "You tried to kill me" is the reason Durance gets mad and wants vengeance. "You won't **** me, how dare you" fits much better.

  7. You're probably right that that's what was intended by Avellone. Though it does contradict his cut backstory with Grieving Mother, but then perhaps that's part of why it was cut.

    Just gonna say to this, it's about expressing power much more than satiating hunger. You don't need to be able to get it up to rape someone. As for the rest, I disagree, but I'll grant that it's a valid interpretation.

     

    My interpretation with the Godhammer is that Durance did it because he thought he had Magran figured out. He thought that if he put on the performance, made the necessary sacrifices, he would be rewarded with what he wanted. (Whether that was a cure for his impotence so he could do mortal women or literal sexual gratification from Magran I can't say: I certainly believe Durance is capable of believing that Magran would come down to Eora in corporeal form for him to sleep with.) He gave of himself for her, and when the reward he so desperately wanted was not forthcoming, he thought that it was just another test. He had to figure out what else he had to do to win Magran's reward. That's why he's so angry when he finds out that Magran intended for him to die with the other makers of the Godhammer. Like all toxic men, he believes he's entitled to his reward after making what he perceived as the necessary payments, and Magran's intention to never repay him is a betrayal. Like all misogynist ****s, his thoughts turn not to self-reflection, but to vengeance for his perceived wrongs.
