I told Mukumu that Pekeho lie about Tamau steal the fruits and then said nothing...Quest log: "I framed Tamau for the theft..."

Why I am the one who framed Tamau?

Who cares who framed him? He's an arsehole.

And lack of dialogue to tell what I want to say, not only this quest. Don't tell me infinite choice, certain dialogue is within reasonable range.

 

For example, when I "buy slave" in Crookspur island, my goal is to save him first before too late and developer knew it since there is option to release him. But when Serafan question me, I cannot explain my plan, I just admit slaving!

I'm not. It's basically frame a piece of filth and let him die to help a noble worker save his people or save an innocent man. Definitely one of the better morally ambiguous quests.

 

Though admittedly it took me five seconds to make up my mind which was the correct option after having played through the quest so many times in the beta. **** Tamua.

I wanted a solution without anyone dying and possibly improving the food situation for the village.

The tribe is a bunch of savage so someone gotta die to "Appease the god"

 

And according to the guides4gamers, it seems the quest is somewhat timed and you can just leave the seed there for a long time and it will be hidden again out of our grasp.

Wait...do you means I return those fruit the seed is gone as well? Not only I framed an innocent people to die but the plan of planting fruit is ruin?

Whoops. I've been sailing for months with plot fruit in my inventory. Whatever timed portion there is has probably expired in my game. :lol:

It's a tribe full of idiots trying to appeal themselves to the Vailian because their Ranga wants to.

 

Turns out the best solution is to just destroy the Adra. They will plan to move to a new location and the director ain't even that mad compared to Royal deadfire one.

I think it would've been nice to at least talk to the Ranga about the issue, even if it would've ultimately been futile.

When the Beta was running I made a thread about this quest. If you'd like to, take your time and read it.

Is my criticism in the opening post, still valid?

That'd be disappointing...

This is how you use spoiler tags:

(spoiler) Spoilerish content (/spoiler)

But instead of using round brackets "(" and ")" , you use square brackets "[" and "]"

 

Spoiler


Yeah I haven't played the game yet. I only know this quest from the beta. Thanks for not spoilering anything.
Though for this quest I don't mind being spoiled. It's just a side quest detached from the main story.

That is not good to hear. That's a shame actually. That's my main point of criticism of quest design in Pillars 1. It's discouraging to hear, that is still a problem in Pillars 2.

As I said in my thread I do not mind having limited options to solve a moral dilemma. If it is an actual moral dilemma.

My problem is when the options are only limited to artificially create a moral dilemma in the first place. And when obvious logical choices to react to a situation are simply not there.

as I said before...I don't get to have a mental meltdown.....It's depressing to be professional and sane all the time when you report what you did in a quest  :lol:

That’s fine... but you take fruit anyway. So innocent person dies and the fruit will be eaten.
