Well, it's pretty bvious who the villain of PoE 2 will be (spoilers naturally)

Recommended Posts

PoE 2 most assuredly will not be a prequel. It will be more sequely than the expansions.

 

Based on...?

 

But let me add one more guess:

  • Sequel set 50 years after the events of PoE in Steampunk-inspired Vailian Republics. Sold on Kickstarter as being somewhat of a spiritual sequel to Arcanum.

*Aloth walks inside Leaden Key's HQ*

 

Aloth: "I'm your new leader."

Leaden Key people: "Wut? No. lel!"

 

more like:

 

*random hobo puts on Woedica mask, and walks inside Leaden Key's HQ*

Hobo: "I'm your new leader."

Leaden Key people: "Since you're wearing a Woedica mask, it must be true. All hail our new leader!"

It might work!

 

Since Aloth didn't burn Thaos' robes, unlike  his other ending, he might pull it off. The Leaden Key bastards might think Aloth bested Thaos and acquired his robes and mask. lol

My bet:

 

1. Another Engwithan

2. Another Watcher (lol Bhaalspawn)

3. An Assassin Avatar sent by Woedica

 

possible

 

4. An Adra-based monster

 

nah.

 

5. Return of Waidwen

 

This one could actually be pretty interesting.

Well.. theys crewed the pooch since they basically tell you the character's futures at the end of the game so it doesn't make sense for them to have the same companions which is hugely dissapointing.

 

I agree that telling you the Companions' futures does seem to make it a lot more difficult to include them in a sequel.  Of course, as I said before, I'm not that attached to them, and wouldn't mind a completely new set of companions.  It'd be something different from BG2, for example.

I suppose Woedica is the next villain, maybe in the first part of the expansion?

 

Nah. Woedica is a god. I think killing a god in the first part of a two part expansion is bad storytelling/design.

Well "god" at least :p But I think it could be the next villain! But maybe for a longer storyarc than just 1st part...

I also doubt that they're going to go the whole "god slayer" route, if only because it's require them to rethink a huge quantity of the lore. Edited by gkathellar

If I'm typing in red, it means I'm being sarcastic. But not this time.

Dark green, on the other hand, is for jokes and irony in general.

In all honesty I don't see any of the companions appearing in future games other than as footnote mentions or maybe a cameo.  Most of them have clear cut and dry endings with no room for deviation.  My Eder is mayor of Dyrford, GM is camped at the birthing bell for no reason, Kana became a professor, none of them have any reason to be off adventuring with me in Eternity 2.  Maybe Durance can pop up again... and maybe Aloth.  That's about it.

 

I would like to see the next game take place in Readceras myself and deal with Eothas returning.... or is that really him?  Dun dun dun and all that.

Uh yeah he is dead.  Whose corpse do you think that was in Anslog's Pass?

 

Raedric could be the villain again considering the ending I got :p.

Well fighting Raedric's undead form was imo considerably more difficult than fighting the final boss, so in a way he was already the 'true' villain of this game... ;)

So funny story, thanks to random google nonsense I found this thread again.  it is really hilarious to see how close some of these suppositions turned out to be.  I would have thought "return of Waidwen (eothas)" was a strong maybe.  But never would have guessed option 4 "adra monster (giant freaking adra statue)" and Return of Waidwen would get combined.

 

Also I turned out to be wrong about returning companions, except for Aloth, I did predict he may show back up.

Reading all those guesses now in 2017 makes me chuckle so.

 

I considered the Waidwen/Eothas comeback from the start. Him disappearing was just too much of a trope to leave it unanswered.

Given his dual personality, it's not hard to imagine him going off the deep end regardless of what his ending was, but, because it is relatively weak (his personality), I don't think he'd make a very memorable antagonist.

Wadda you mean! Islemeyr would make a fantastic antagonist. And I'm pretty sure she could count on Eder's support.

Not in level-scaled PotD, or PotD in general.  Thaos has some murderous flames.
