    F7bDD.png Well, holy shit. Let's pare that down to manageable tasks for now...

    To-Do:
    - Townsfolk:
    -- Domovoi
    --- Wants me to rehydrate his friend at the "bad place", likely Monastery
    -- Gnome
    --- Humor stolen by Baba Yaga
    --- Got Good Humor Bar for him

    - Fortune: 4 Folks that affect me
    -- Inv High Priestess - Baba Yaga
    --- Will help me if I give her "food"

    - Rituals of the Dark One:
    -- 3. ? - Stolen from Hangman Tree, possibly by Baba Yaga

    - Castle Borgov
    -- Katrina
    --- Cares for Tanya
    --- Also HOT
    --- Master's Daughter?
    --- Meet out front of castle

    - MISC
    -- How did I get here?
    -- Who brought me here?


    F7bDD.png There. I guess. Well, I did get another round of shit for Baba Yaga, so let's start there, since I'm nearby.

    1JCxf.png
    xa6TA.png
    XopBW.png

    KkGVh.png Hey, have you and Baba got something going on the side that I don't know about?

    F7bDD.png I'd vomit, but given what I know about Baba Yaga, that might just turn her on, so I'll just leave it at "No". Time to grind me some more bonemeal, though...

    vTBx1.gif

    F7bDD.png And here we go, one more time...

    7ydmr.png

    F7bDD.png OK, OK, I know the drill, feet stuck to the floor, yadda yadda...

    LNd03.png

    F7bDD.png Here, I brought you more useless shit food. Let's start with the bonemeal.

    mthMw.png What do you want in return for your little gift?

    F7bDD.png Well, let's start from the beginning. I got dropped here mysteriously in the Dark One's cave, and ever since then, I've been...

    JGtyr.png

    F7bDD.png Wait, what? The folks at the castle? The Dark Master brought me here on purpose? Why didn't I just get summoned directly to the Master, then?

    mthMw.png They just didn't realize how powerful the Dark Influences are. They are keeping a close watch over you now, though. The castle folks used a lot of magic to get you here. You should be sure and thank them for your visit when you see them.

    F7bDD.png Oh, I'll hope to see them really soon.

    To-Do:
    - Castle Borgov
    -- Katrina
    --- Cares for Tanya
    --- Also HOT
    --- Master's Daughter?
    --- Meet out front of castle

    - MISC
    -- How did I get here?
    -- Who brought me here?

    -- The folks at the castle brought me here, but why?


    F7bDD.png Anyway, as I was saying, ever since I got here, I've been collecting Dark One Rituals. I heard one was nearby here. Have you seen it?

    574EA.png

    mthMw.png So you heard about that, eh? I found it hidden in the Hangman Tree some years ago. You're asking for trouble. I hope you know using that Ritual for any purpose will only bring you grief.

    It can be used in either of two ways. Its main purpose is to bring a Dark One across to this world. However, a very powerful wizard could use it to send the Dark One back to its world.


    F7bDD.png Well, then, it's a good thing I'm a...

    mthMw.png You don't qualify as a very powerful wizard, as I see it. Still, you want it, you got it.

    You put the Breath Ritual away in your pack.

    F7bDD.png Hey, you haven't seen anything....bah, thanks, I guess.

    To-Do:
    - Rituals of the Dark One:
    -- 3. Breath - HAVE - Baba Yaga


    F7bDD.png I still have this goo, too. Maybe I can trade this for something that would make me a more powerful wizard?

    sW9vq.png

    mthMw.png Magic? Let me think, what have I got that won't let you get me? I suppose you want something other than a spell to cause warts? Oh, all right. Here's a spell scroll to teach you the 'Hide' spell. I use it all the time, as you can tell.

    +6 Learn Invisibility Spell from Baba Yaga (247)

    F7bDD.png Invisibility could come in handy...

    mthMw.png Hero near, Out of Here!

    cOyxb.png

    F7bDD.png Well, fuck going back there, then. Unless I burn the place down at some point, that is.

    To-Do:
    - Townsfolk:
    -- Domovoi
    --- Wants me to rehydrate his friend at the "bad place", likely Monastery
    -- Gnome
    --- Humor stolen by Baba Yaga
    --- Got Good Humor Bar for him


    F7bDD.png I suppose I should give that gnome his Good Humor back. That should make me popular.

    h7GvY.png
    UegB2.png
    bfDnC.png

    F7bDD.png Hey Burgo. I'm about to make the entire town happy again...just trust me.

    OCtkf.png

    F7bDD.png Ooh, breakfast!

    nM65R.png

    F7bDD.png So guys, it turns out that in order for me to get that staff in front of town, I need someone to sacrifice themselves to bring a loved one back. So, for example, if I tracked down your daughter, and she happened to be, say, dead, well, how about it, guys?

    WxgZ7.png ...
    AEayq.png ...

    F7bDD.png Right, I know my way out. First, though...

    ifl6V.png

    F7bDD.png OK, Gnome, fuck with me and I end you. Everyone will probably be just as happy.

    Cl3I5.png

    F7bDD.png That's a good gnome. Wait, don't say anything! That will only make it harder to do the right thing...

    c25MX.png

    F7bDD.png Eat. Don't speak.

    +15 Restore Punny's Humor (262)

    rVNI8.png Not bad. Pretty good, actually. Hey, I feel funny. I mean REALLY funny. What was that thing?

    F7bDD.png Toxic, probably. I got it from Baba Yaga, who claims it'll fix your humor.

    rVNI8.png You know what they say about humor, if you don't got it, ya won't get it. And if ya don't get it, I'm sure someone will try to explain it at great length.

    Do you know why Gnome jokes are so short? So that they won't go over the Dwarves' heads. There's no point in telling a Dwarf a joke with a double meaning. He won't get either one. Judging from the expression, 'What you don't know can't hurt you,' Dwarves are practically invulnerable.

    Of course, far be it from me to say that all Dwarves are just plain dumb. Most are pretty greedy, too. Dwarves get their money the hoard way. They won't even spend the time a day. Dwarves don't care how people treat them, as long as they do.

    Of course, you know what you got when the singing dragon fell into the Dwarf mine? 'A flat miner.' And on that note, let's change the subject.


    F7bDD.png And to think I actually thought it would work. Shame on me I guess.

    rVNI8.png Well, now that I'm back in the funny business, it's one more show and I'm back on the road. I'm going to show these yokels that he who laughs last just didn't get it.

    F7bDD.png Well, my work here is done...I guess. I'll just be going...

    rVNI8.png Some people spread happinesss wherever they go; others, whenever they go. Fortunately, you are the former. If ya was the ladder, you'd probably have a few rungs missing.

    Before ya blow, Joe, I figure Iowa. I'm going ta let ya in on a secret only we Gnomes know. I'm going ta tell ya the Ultimate Joke. Don't wince, Vince. This is straight, mate. Ya tell this one, and whoever hears it is going ta laugh. Really laugh. Can't help it, can't stop it kind of laugh.

    Only works once, and should only be used in last resorts, Mort. It's the last laugh, so ta speak. The best jest of the west. Yours fer the telling.


    mQ1JX.png The Gnome tells you a rather silly joke. You find yourself laughing despite yourself.

    rVNI8.png See what I mean, Gene? Tell this joke to a big bad dude that's out ta do ya in, then exit while he's laughin'. Use it or lose it. Bye, bye, Birdie.

    F7bDD.png Sure, I'll remember that right when my mastery of magical forces proves insufficient. So, likely never? Thanks, though.

    To-Do:
    - Townsfolk:
    -- Domovoi
    --- Wants me to rehydrate his friend at the "bad place", likely Monastery
    -- Gnome
    --- Humor stolen by Baba Yaga
    --- Got Good Humor Bar for him

    --- SAVED - Gave me Ultimate Joke to distract someone once.


    uFrFO.png

    F7bDD.png Now to go deal with that dried-up Domovoi in the Monastery.

    cLPVE.png

    F7bDD.png Quick use of the Hexapod sign, and...

    AMYSu.png

    F7bDD.png ...here we are. So...dried up husk of a Domovoi? What's over on the cabinet there?

    mQ1JX.png This amazingly lifelike sculpture looks like a cross between a baby Troll and a hermit or dervish. It fits the description of a "Domovoi" except that it's totally dried out (and unmoving).

    F7bDD.png That was rather oddly specific. Rehydration potion, do your thing!

    o0aWe.png

    +6 Rehydrate Dried Domovoi (268)

    dbsT3.png
    zSe4h.png Glad am I to be alive. Happy thanks, I give you. Careful you should be here. Dangerous very it is. Feed the guard, or destroy it, to find the secret passage down. Luck to you.

    F7bDD.png ...that was it? I've already done that shit! Bah, my boy Blue had better appreciate it, anyway. So, what else is there to do today?

    To-Do:
    - Townsfolk:
    -- Domovoi
    --- Wants me to rehydrate his friend at the "bad place", likely Monastery

    - Castle Borgov
    -- Katrina
    --- Cares for Tanya
    --- Also HOT
    --- Master's Daughter?
    --- Meet out front of castle


    F7bDD.png Oh, right. I have some major questions for her this time, too. I'm not going to let her beauty distract me tonight. First, I should train up, though, and look impressive in my own right.

    ...Later that night, after much magic training...

    ye9ty.png

    F7bDD.png Here we go...

    f2GXO.png

    F7bDD.png Hey, Katrina, I was...uhh...wow...

    1rE8i.png

    R8Zr4.png You want to see how awesome I am at magic? Look, I can Levitate right on over this gate with ease!

    7W9ax.png
    mJOLC.png
    VqNCJ.png

    F7bDD.png Err, I mean, hey, did you hear about the time I outdueled two wizards down in Africa Tarna?

    az9fq.png I love hearing stories of your adventures. I've never met a true Hero before. I was starting to get a little scared out here by myself. I'm so glad you are here. You make me feel so safe.

    F7bDD.png I've Heroed in many parts of the world, but you are the most attractive person I've ever seen.

    az9fq.png Are you flirting with me? Usually, it's the other way around. You are very attractive, after all. It is rather warm tonight, isn't it? My scarf felt too confining. I hope you will excuse the fact I'm not wearing it. I know it's not proper, but I didn't think you would mind.

    F7bDD.png Oh, I don't mind, I don't think anyone minds...(C'mon, Jim, focus!) Hey, I was wondering, why did you call me here in the first place?

    az9fq.png Isn't this a date? I mean, you did meet me here and everything. I wanted so much to speak with you again. You are very handsome, you know. I'd love to kiss you, but I don't think I will just yet. You are far too tempting to resist.

    F7bDD.png Speaking of tempting to resist, holy shit...I mean, I need to stay focused here. Did you or your family summon me here to Mordavia in the first place?

    az9fq.png I've got to be off now. Please meet me again, say, three nights hence? I'll be waiting to see you here.

    mQ1JX.png Katrina walks off into the forest to the west and is quickly gone from sight.

    x8McS.png

    F7bDD.png I'll just keep to my thoughts here for a bit. I'll be coherent again by the next set, I promise...

    EDIT: It's still hard to wrap my brain around the fact that Katrina is voiced by the same actress as Commander Shepard. Of course, these are the sorts of roles Jennifer Hale usually does (like Cinderella).

    To be fair, Hale doesn't use this accent often. Usually it's English (Bastilla/Shateel Shan, Mazzy Fenton) or America (Shepard, Totaly Spies).

    Sometimes I think Baba Yaga is my favorite character in the series. She's evil, but she's just so polite about it.

    Also, please tell me that I'm not the only one who actually giggled at some of those Gnome jokes?

  • PiotyrPiotyr Registered User regular
    Funny thing is that's apparently Hale's natural accent, as she's of French descent.

    At least he got the punchlines to make sense after he got his humor back. There'll be one more Gnome comedy routine in the next set, which should go up fast since I already have the voices and screenshots ready (another set of me being overambitious and not being able to get an entire day in one set).

  • NocrenNocren Lt Futz, Back in Action North CarolinaRegistered User regular
    I found the Gnome's insults a lot funnier.
    Though since I played the unpatched version, I never managed to get all the rituals and finish the game.

    Set Music - Fairy Fountain

    msVyn.png

    F7bDD.png Okay, I have my bearings again. Now what did I just learn from that expert interrogation?

    To-Do:
    - Castle Borgov
    -- Katrina
    --- Cares for Tanya
    --- Also HOT
    --- Master's Daughter?
    --- Meet out front of castle in 3 days


    F7bDD.png I learned I have 3 days to be a better interrogator. I need to learn more, and quickly.

    To-Do:
    - Townsfolk:
    -- Domovoi
    --- Saved Dry Domovoi...now what?
    -- Gnome - SAVED - Gave me Ultimate Joke, doing one last performance

    - Leshy Riddles
    -- What do the fairies want?


    F7bDD.png The night is still young, so let's see about those fairies.

    h1lCl.png

    F7bDD.png Oh, fairies, where are you? Here's a nice Hero, just what you said you needed, am I right?

    XrgxP.png

    F7bDD.png Fairies? Is that you?

    XYfjQ.png

    F7bDD.png Well, didn't you wake up on the wrong side of the living this morning? Hi, I'm Jim Darkmagic. You may have been dead before I did my thing, but I'm kind of a big deal around here. Let me show you how things roll around here when I'm involved.

    WNE1d.png

    F7bDD.png You eat flames...

    IQ6kA.png

    F7bDD.png ...and I emerge victorious. Everybody wins! Well, except you, but you hardly care, since you were dead in the first place, am I right?

    Anyway, where were we? Oh right, fairies. The search continues!


    9GeWx.png

    F7bDD.png Did I say I wanted fairies? I mean I wanted a staff! Come to papa!

    AMcnC.png

    mQ1JX.png You reach for the glowing staff.

    pBxQ3.png

    F7bDD.png Hey! What the...?

    hcGWU.png
    2I8OO.png

    F7bDD.png At least I'm still awake this time.

    JqmUI.png You have been tempted by a mere illusion, but there is a true Staff in Mordavia -- the Staff of Erana. Before the Staff may be claimed, there must be a sacrifice made. One life for that of another. You must bring about that sacrifice!

    F7bDD.png Already working on it. I think the innkeepers are warming up to the idea.

    JqmUI.png Once you have completed the sacrifce, you will need to perform the Ritual of Release which you can use to free the Staff from its confinement. I will teach you this ritual. In return, you must come back here when you have Erana's Staff.

    XYyCK.png

    F7bDD.png Good deal. So, all I need to do is come here with the staff? What happens then?

    AKt40.png
    nfpGF.png
    FK0ap.png

    F7bDD.png Fucking fairies. Could just say a pleasant goodbye, you know.

    To-Do:
    - Leshy Riddles
    -- What do the fairies want? Fairies want me to bring them the Staff of Erana


    BhRDU.png

    F7bDD.png Well, I suppose I should go see that gnome's exit performance. At least make sure the guy leaves town afterwards.

    CPjyC.png
    evXuj.png

    F7bDD.png You will be mine. Oh yes, you will be mine.

    rv2ox.png

    F7bDD.png Hi, I'm here for the comedy routine? No, really.

    5ZJbx.png

    F7bDD.png Yep, I'm here on purpose. Do what you can to make sure that it wasn't a huge mistake on my part.

    rVNI8.png So you're back. No, it's your front. Take a seat, no, take two, they're small. I've got a joke just for ewe, so don't look so sheepish.

    F7bDD.png Urge to burn things...rising...

    rVNI8.png Good Evening, ladies and gentlemen and all you others. I'd like to say how glad I am to be here -- I'd like to say it. Seriously, folks, staying at the Hotel Mordavia has been like staying at a resort. A last resort.

    My room is so small, the mice are hunchbacked. I couldn't even complain about the room service -- there wasn't any to complain about. And the innkeeper's wife really went out of her way to make me feel at home -- she ignored me completely.

    ...

    I said to the doctor, 'My heart keeps making a strange noise. It keeps on going tick, tick, tick.' 'Aha' said Dr. Cranium. 'Ve have vays of making you tock.'

    Next I went to visit the local store. If you don't know what's up, then you haven't seen their prices lately. And the shopkeeper -- what a gossip! She suffers from acute indiscretion. I dislike repeating gossip, but what else can you do with it?

    And boy, oh, boy, the monsters in this place. If I ever came face to face with a Revenant, I know what steps I'd take -- long ones. What would I do if I saw a Necrotaur? Hope it didn't see me.

    ...

    So, when you've lost your wit, broken your funny bone, and none of your puns are fun, it helps to have a Hero handy. You know, that reminds me very little of the story about the gravedigger who was so bored he buried himself in his work.

    You know, I could tell you more jokes, but you'd only laugh at them. So long and be good. If you can't be good, then be careful.


    ICerN.png

    F7bDD.png Hey, John made a pun! On that note, I've seen enough, I think. Later, gnome, hope you find your way out of town quickly.

    GAAln.png

    F7bDD.png Yep, I'll just show myself out.

    1diCx.png

    rVNI8.png Now it's so long, it's been nice to know you. I like you -- I have no taste, but I like you. If you ever make it to Silmaria, look me up. I never forget a friend, especially if he owes me money.

    F7bDD.png I'll have to remember that. Silmaria. Never go there.

    To-Do:
    -- Gnome - SAVED - Gave me Ultimate Joke - Left for Silmaria, thankfully


    F7bDD.png Now, I can use a good night's sleep.

    t82cR.png

    F7bDD.png Getting tired? I've long since been there. But yet again, some dumbass in the inn is making a fucking racket.

    k9uOB.png

    F7bDD.png Blue! I saved your dry friend. What's that do for me?

    OsxHt.png You did good. Domovoi very happy not to be in very bad place. Domovoi very happy not to be dried up. Bad Place Domovoi all better now. Bad Place Domovoi now live in Burgomeister's place. Maybe good luck to Burgomeister.

    F7bDD.png Good for him. How does that help me?

    OsxHt.png You help me. I you help. You want be big Hero? You want make many people happy? You want make friends and influence people?

    F7bDD.png I do enjoy my fair share of praise and worship from grateful people, yes.

    OsxHt.png Tell you a story. Yuri and Bella have daughter Tanya. Lovely daughter. Laughing daughter. One day, Tanya taken away. All because of doll. Tanya sweet child. Tanya like everyone. Then Bella have dream. Dream Tanya taken away. Bella very scared.

    Not let Tanya play outside. Not let Tanya have friends. Tanya get scared of dark. Tanya many times alone at back of inn in dark. One day, monster come. Big monster. Friendly monster. He visit Tanya's window. He talk to Tanya. Tanya not afraid of dark. Tanya now have monster friend.

    One night, Tanya very unhappy, so monster take Tanya away. Monster want to make Tanya happy. Now Tanya gone. Tanya gone to castle. No one see Tanya leave. No one see Tanya go. No one but Domovoi. Domovoi try to stop Tanya, but too late. Tanya already outside with monster.

    No tell Bella. No tell Yuri. Very bad thing. Tanya need Hero, not dead parents. Only brave, powerful Hero save Tanya.


    F7bDD.png Yeah...I wouldn't ever want something to happen to Tanya's parents...so where do I come in again?

    OsxHt.png Bella hide doll in cabinet. You take doll. Tanya love doll. Maybe you help Tanya. No talk Bella. No show Bella doll. Make Bella very scared. Make Bella very unhappy.

    You take doll. You take doll to Tanya some day. Some day you very powerful Hero, you take doll to Tanya. Take doll. Become plenty powerful Hero. Then Tanya you help.


    F7bDD.png Tanya's doll...in this cabinet right here?

    8IktJ.png

    F7bDD.png Well, she certainly missed her doll. Maybe this will cure her or something.

    To-Do:
    - Townsfolk:
    -- Domovoi - SAVED - Gave me Tanya's Doll
    --- Saved Dry Domovoi...now what?

    wJkb7.png Oh, son of a...now what?

    There is definitely some magic interfering with the vision. It is difficult to tell whether I am getting through or not...
    Either you are mystically rusty or your crystal is dusty.
    You are not helping. I need to concentrate here. I think I'm starting to get something...
    Wait, let me see if I can adjust the antenna...

    mQ1JX.png You hear the sudden sound of music and a different voice saying, "And now for something completely different..."

    The music and the voices fade as you start to awake.


    p4bfO.png

    F7bDD.png Yep, nothing like a good night's sleep...that certainly wasn't anything like it, anyway. Breakfast?

    dp4Li.png

    F7bDD.png So, guys, I'm having a dilemma. I need to take that Staff protecting the town to the fairies for some reason, but I need to sacrifice someone to do it. If I told you I could save your dead daughter by sacrificing one of you, who's most up for it? Come on, everybody wins...

    AEayq.png ...
    WxgZ7.png ...

    F7bDD.png Right, you guys think it over, and I'll let you know if I can find a better way to nab that staff protecting the entire town from the undead. I'll just let myself out.

    F7bDD.png This morning blows so far. I feel the need to burn something to cheer myself everyone up.

    I3iFp.png

    F7bDD.png This should do.

    No8zh.png

    F7bDD.png Now, to find something flammable...

    h1k7N.png If Igor get big Hero job, can he be pyromaniac too?

    F7bDD.png Follow your dreams, you can reach your goals. I'm living proof.

    I actually feel much better now. And I doubt anyone will miss the monastery, either. Everybody really does win! Now, anything else I can take care of this morning?

    0vNcM.png Oops! Hi there. Nine and eight makes seventeen, watch out for the Faerie Queen. Cloaked by magic, pale of cheek, what is it that the Faeries seek?

    F7bDD.png They seek Erana's Staff. But, then again, so do I, so that should be an interesting meetup once that happens, eh?

    Hm. Ok, I'm certain now, I don't think I ever finished this game.

  • PiotyrPiotyr Registered User regular
    Faerie subplot doesn't ring a bell?

  • DisruptedCapitalistDisruptedCapitalist Registered User regular
    Not at all. Is that just a wizard thing? I played Paladin.

  • PiotyrPiotyr Registered User regular
    Yes, the entire Faerie Queen subplot is wizard only. It's the only way for wizards to get the
    Heart Ritual
    .

  • DisruptedCapitalistDisruptedCapitalist Registered User regular
    Yeah, I remember the gnome leaving town, but I don't remember meeting Katrina outside the gates or burning the monastary. (But I do remember the dream of Erasmus.) I dunno. It's been like 12 years since I last tried playing it, I think.

  • PiotyrPiotyr Registered User regular
    edited March 2012
    I've also been deliberately avoiding
    saving Tanya
    because it prevents any of these flavor things (meetings with Katrina, dreams at the inn, dreams in the garden, one other thing in the inn I'm trying to trigger yet) from happening anymore. Burning the monastery is a purely optional thing that I just do for fun, because I can.

    EDIT: I'm at the point where there's basically nothing of point value I can do until I perform the above spoiler, so I think there'll be one more set where I train up magic and see the rest of the dreams, one last fortune, and one more meetup with Katrina before heading into the endgame sequence. It'll be a set of pure flavor.

    Oh, maybe that's it,
    I saved Tanya and lost all the optional stuff.
    We'll see if the ending looks at all familiar.

    1g4fz.png

    F7bDD.png Ok, Leshy, next time you pull that shit, you get your own trial by fire. Now, what was I doing before that assault by bush?

    To-Do:
    - Townsfolk:
    -- Domovoi
    --- Wants me to save Tanya from the castle, using doll
    -- Innkeeper Yuri and wife
    --- Missing daughter Tanya

    - Castle Borgov
    -- Katrina
    --- Meet out front of castle in 3 days


    F7bDD.png Looks like Tanya is the central character in everyone's business, but I might anger the Dark Master if I just waltzed in and grabbed her. For now, I should probably train to be as strong as I can be to show Katrina what a real hero looks like...

    fW1RY.png

    F7bDD.png Soon, staff, very soon...

    WGISH.png

    F7bDD.png Psh, real heroes use all the weights...

    jGzrW.png

    F7bDD.png There, that should be easy enough...

    aZBoI.gif

    mQ1JX.png You think you've done about as much stair-stepping as your body can handle.

    F7bDD.png Yeah, I'll be feeling that in the morning. But what's a little training without some magic?

    qteRB.gif

    F7bDD.png You folks in the audience may think that's simply a looped animation, but the reality is the same, except you'd just stare at that for a good hour. Before I get mind-numbingly bored, though, I feel the pressing need to murder something.

    NC5Zf.png

    F7bDD.png And just look at those guns! Maybe I'll just call em Flame, Frost and Force. What, you only see two guns up there? Well, the third is just going to have to be left to your imagination, then...

    IrUqf.png

    F7bDD.png That pretty much killed the day nicely. I think I've earned some free garlic dinner.

    3eGLB.png

    F7bDD.png Evening, everyone. Did you all get a chance to think about my proposal? Who wants to be the quite literal sacrifical lamb? If you are uncomfortable, I'm perfectly willing to perform the sacrificing...

    AEayq.png ...
    WxgZ7.png ...
    Ks1TE.png ...
    PcvgA.png ...
    VTLlM.png ...

    F7bDD.png Hey, now, that staff protecting the entire village from being massacred by the undead isn't going to pull itself out of the hill, now...I'll just show myself to my room, then.

    oBCOm.png

    F7bDD.png They just need more time to decide.

    QKbWM.png

    F7bDD.png I'll sleep well tonight, though...

    mQ1JX.png Your sleep is interrupted around midnight. You can hear weeping from somewhere below your room.

    JbBiQ.png

    F7bDD.png Dreams, domovoi, now what?

    hltLl.png

    F7bDD.png Seems to be coming from the innkeeper's room...

    274QJ.png

    F7bDD.png Eavesdropping is cool when heroing is involved...right?

    AEayq.png You must accept it, Bella. Tanya is dead. You will never see her again.

    WxgZ7.png No! I cannot believe it. She can't be. I know she is alive. I know she will come back to us.

    AEayq.png Crying will not bring her back to us. This is foolish. Just go to sleep.

    WxgZ7.png How can I sleep, when my baby is not safe? She is at the castle, I know she must be.

    AEayq.png Then she must be dead. Bella, there is nothing we can do.

    mQ1JX.png The cries fade off to quiet sobs.

    F7bDD.png Not to sound even more like an asshole, but not quiet enough! I have to fix this, somehow. Maybe I'll ask Katrina about it when I see her in two days. For now, though...

    gMeqg.gif

    F7bDD.png ...more training! I don't think I can sleep here with all this crying, though...

    hZtTN.png

    F7bDD.png I need to sleep somehwere I'll actually get sleep.

    9NVAW.png
    QadgK.png

    wJkb7.png This should be perfect. Why haven't I beel sleeping here all along again?

    W5KYb.png

    wJkb7.png Oh right...those dreams...

    You are in this weird and wonderful place once more. This time you remember all the times you have been here before, and despite the beauty, you are afraid. You listen for the voice. It calls out for you.

    wJkb7.png ...Katrina?...

    SbUao.png

    wJkb7.png ...I don't remember dying, actually...

    You are overwhelmed with horror, and you remember running away. Your lungs struggle in the agony of no air, and you remember screaming.

    You are helpless and hopeless, and you remember the eternal loneliness. With all your remaining strength, you reach out to touch the voice.

    wJkb7.png ...Katrina?...

    RQhch.png

    F7bDD.png Damn it! I really need to figure out what these dreams are trying to tell me. Oh well, try again tonight, I guess. First, though...breakfast!

    hGbN1.png

    F7bDD.png So...guys. I realize that I've been kind of an asshole about this whole missing daughter business, and that it may have been insensitive for me to ask you to sacrifice yourselves. And it may have also been a bit selfish of me to do it specifically to take the one thing keeping your town alive. So, for all that, I apologize, and I promise I'll do everything I can to bring your daughter back safely.

    AEayq.png ...
    WxgZ7.png ...

    F7bDD.png It's okay, I can let myself out. Oh, and thanks for all the breakfasts.

    ...now, I feel like training some combat spells, namely Force Bolt. Now, where's a good place to practice that...?


    aWqFh.png

    F7bDD.png Oh hi, Elderbury. I bet you thought I forgot about that little attempted murder business, didn't you? Well, now you're going to help me train for a while...

    1dvFL.gif

    F7bDD.png He weebles and wobbles and doesn't fall down! This is perfect training. I could spend all day doing this...

    htsmV.png

    wJkb7.png ...and I did, too. Now to figure out this fucking dream...

    rCkSX.png

    You reach out to take her hand, and smile as she smiles back at you. You hold open your arms, and she flows into them. You embrace one another, and share your happiness.

    wJkb7.png ...best...dream...ever...come to Jim, Katrina...

    You both laugh with joy as you each behold the stranger you have known so long; this friend you have never met, but always cared for, this love you share for the first time and forever.

    wJkb7.png ...wait. First time? Never met? Who are you, mystery woman?

    You kiss the lips of the mage Erana.

    kVzQ9.png

    wJkb7.png ...!

    fpxPe.png

    F7bDD.png I...uh...huh? Erana? That's it, I need to go see a professional about this shit.

    m6Uu9.png
    cHNdC.png

    F7bDD.png I need a psychiatrist fortune teller, now!

    1lCCB.png

    F7bDD.png So, I had a dream that I was making out with Erana, who is dead. Is that weird?

    AxeSM.png The Magician Erana's death is shrouded in mystery. I do not know her true fate. I only know that her staff protects the town and her garden protects anyone in need of safety.

    F7bDD.png And gives me fucked-up dreams! Maybe a fortune will tell me more.

    AxeSM.png Again, the cards are prepared, and they shall reveal what they will.

    To-Do:
    - Fortune: 4 Folks that affect me
    -- Inv High Priestess - Baba Yaga
    -- Inv King of Coins - Ad Avis
    --- Serves Queen of Swords (Dark Master is a woman!)
    --- Definitely going to be a pain in my ass again
    --- Desires revenge, but can't now
    -- Queen of Cups - Katrina
    --- Kind and loving and trying to help me
    --- Suffered hardships in past
    --- Bound to the present
    --- In love with me
    --- Goals are an illusion?
    -- Queen of Swords - ?
    --- Either deceiver or deceived
    --- Dark Master(!)


    F7bDD.png Maybe we'll learn more about the Dark Master, then?

    R9k38.png

    F7bDD.png Queen of Cups again? That's bullshit!

    AxeSM.png The woman of loving shall be revealed. What may we now learn of her distant past?

    F7bDD.png Fine, I'll play along. Maybe it'll be different this time?

    dRcuV.png
    This is the sign of magic and creativity. The, as the others who influence your life, has the power. She is one to whom magic has been the strongest influence upon her life. She is a master weaver of spells. What next can we learn?

    ItlFp.png
    The Ace of Cups is the sign of overflowing joy and happiness. This is a woman who uses her power joyfully, giving gracefully and lovingly to others. She is generous and loving, and she has shown this through her use of magic. This woman gives from her heart.

    F7bDD.png I'm loving this info about Katrina more and more...we go on!

    ZcNoe.png
    Ah, your gentle woman, too, has been bound by something. A crisis has occurred, a defeat or imprisonment by someone. What more can we learn?

    F7bDD.png Is she actually imprisoned by the Dark Master, then?

    6Bh0v.png
    This is a sign of balanced force, a stalemate, of things not coming to a resolution. That with which the woman came in conflict has also been held in check. They were locked in battle, or they were both defeated in the past.

    F7bDD.png So, locked in struggle with the Dark Master, then? This is starting to sound a little concerning...what's next?

    SCBQV.png
    The Hanged Man is the symbol of sacrifice. The conflict in the past required this woman to give up something of value. She has paid some great price, but the outcome is uncertain. Let us see the next card.

    tTsJt.png
    Alas, this card shows a tomb and someone at final rest. The woman's sacrifice was exile or possibly even death. Yet her sacrifice still affects you somehow. Somehow I cannot believe that her sacrifice was in vain.

    F7bDD.png Sacrifice? Exile? Katrina isn't in exile...

    AdNVL.png
    The Dark One! This is the first time in these readings that the Darkness-which-lies-waiting has been active rather than merely a major influence. Somehow, this woman is bound by the Darkness. Whether she has been subverted, or destroyed, I cannot tell. Something remains, else there would be no reading.

    F7bDD.png Bound by the Darkness? In what way?

    AxeSM.png I think that this powerful woman battled with the Dark One. She was defeated, or perhaps sacrificed herself to prevent it from entering this world. But what will be the outcome of all this?

    F7bDD.png Sacrificed herself in battle with the Dark One? That doesn't sound like Katrina...that sounds like Piotyr's story about Erana. What will affect the Dark One's control, though?

    ExJfl.png
    You! Then you are not only a friend to the gypsies, but a great hero as well. Your destiny shall affect the world, my young friend. You will determine the fate of this woman. You shall face the Dark One. Reveal the final influence upon this Reading.

    F7bDD.png At least I have a purpose here, now. So, what's the overriding influence this time? Void again?

    AxeSM.png So, the Darkness still covers all. I had hoped that you might be spared...that you might not have to face the Darkness. But that is the way of the Hero, is it not? To face that which others fear and dread?

    F7bDD.png Well, somebody has to do it, might as well be me!

    3gnMH.png
    oyoWI.png

    F7bDD.png Okay, I'm still a little confused, though. In the last reading, you turned over what looked like the Queen of Cups, and it sounded a lot more like Katrina, a woman from the castle that I've been meeting up with regularly.

    AxeSM.png I have no knowledge of such a person. Much is strange about your story. I would not entirely trust this Katrina, if I were you. The Queen of Swords is quite deceptive.

    F7bDD.png Whoa, whoa, Queen of Swords?! So, then Erana really is the Queen of Cups, then...and if Katrina is the Queen of Swords, that means...

    To-Do:
    - Fortune: 4 Folks that affect me
    -- Queen of Swords - ?
    --- Either deceiver or deceived
    --- Dark Master(!)


    F7bDD.png Katrina is the Dark Master! She brought me here! But why?...Oh, shit! I'm meeting up with her in a day! So, what do I know now?

    To-Do:
    - Townsfolk:
    - Fortune: 4 Folks that affect me
    -- High Priestess - Baba Yaga
    -- Queen of Cups - Katrina Erana!
    --- Kind and loving and trying to help me
    --- Bound by the Dark One, trapped in battle
    -- Queen of Swords - Katrina!
    --- Dark Master!
    --- Either deceiver or deceived
    --- Suffered hardships in past
    --- Bound to the present
    --- In love with me(!)
    --- Cares for Tanya in Castle
    --- Goals are an illusion?
    -- Inv King of Coins - Ad Avis

    - Rituals of the Dark One:
    -- 5. Mouth - Taken by castle people. Katrina used it to get me out?

    - Castle Borgov
    -- Katrina
    --- Cares for Tanya
    --- Also HOT
    --- Master's Daughter? DARK MASTER!
    --- Meet out front of castle TONIGHT
    -- Stranger
    --- Referred to as Dark Master (!) Must be Ad Avis, then!
    --- Not well liked by most in castle
    -- Why did they bring me here?


    F7bDD.png So, she's the Dark Master, brought me here in the first place, is in charge of Ad Avis at the castle, cares for Tanya, wants to see me for some unknown purpose, may actually love me, and probably has the Mouth Ritual? Holy fucking shit! I need to do some serious training, and fast!

    VV7yi.png

    F7bDD.png Serpents are no match for Jim Darkmagic! I need to get this Flame Dart to Dark Master levels, now!

    CGc52.gif

    F7bDD.png Okay, maxed out that spell. Now I'm all prepared for...

    J3wcR.png

    F7bDD.png ...now remember, Jim. She doesn't know that you know she's the Dark Master. Now be subtle, be subtle...

    az9fq.png I wanted to ask a favor of you. I need your help. I'm trying to find...Oh, but we hardly even know one another, and here I am asking you for favors. I'm sorry. It's just that this is so important to me that I couldn't wait to ask you. It's strange how much I look forward to seeing you. I've never really cared about men before.

    F7bDD.png ...wow...

    R8Zr4.png What can I do to serve you, Lady Master?

    az9fq.png I wanted you to find some things for me. But it's really too dangerous. I'd hate for you to get hurt trying to help me. Never mind. Besides, I don't even know if I can trust you yet.

    R8Zr4.png I'm trustworthy, really! And I'm really strong!

    az9fq.png I need someone dependable; someone who will face danger willingly for me. Perhaps when we get to know one another better, I'll be able to tell if you are the one I need.

    R8Zr4.png But I am! Just tell me where to go!

    az9fq.png I know that one of the things I need is hidden in the swamp. You have to be very strong or clever to avoid getting killed there. I'm not sure you are ready to face the dangers awaiting you in that dismal place.

    R8Zr4.png I can and have! Just give me a chance, Lady Master Katrina!

    az9fq.png Please, work on your skills before we next meet. Mordavia is a very dangerous place. I do need your help, but I don't want anything harmful to happen to you. Farewell.

    M4Dij.png

    F7bDD.png ...damn it! Smooth, Jim, really smooth. She needs some things, though, one of which is in the swamp? She wants the Rituals! Good thing I've already got four.

    ...but, really? Not ready yet? Train up my skills?! I'll show her how much of a hero I can really be. I just need to sleep on it to get an idea...


    9rjvf.png
    zjFv4.png

    wJkb7.png One more dream, Erana? It's not cheating if I'm sleeping, right?

    pvHbf.png

    The Darkness reaches for you. The tendrils of twisted magic writhe around you, sucking at your very soul. Your Staff is torn away. Your magic is sheared from you, and you lie defenseless before the all-devouring blackness.

    wJkb7.png Aww, this is the shitty dream...

    You are swallowed by the Darkness. Now you draw forth the last of your power -- your very life force. With your final spell, you bind the Darkness from within, and send it back to the Chaos from which it came.

    It takes you with it.

    wJkb7.png Okay, Erana, I get it now. I'll do you right. I'll go save Tanya.

    There are actually three additional inn dreams (one dark master, two mysterious wizard), but to my knowledge, they are randomly triggered, and I have been unable to trigger them. At this point, I think I've covered enough optional stuff to just go forward with the main plot. The Dark Master dream is only tangentially related to the plot (it's mostly just more bitching about how useless you are), and the mysterious wizard dreams are completely unrelated to the plot (just to be funny).

    EDIT: And part of why this took a week to post is that I spent a good four evenings grinding up magic. Basically just watch each training animated GIF for three hours, and you get the general idea.

    "Mysterious wizard"? You mean Erasmus? I know he tries to find you while you're sleeping at least once.

    Technically that isn't known until the end of the game, and I'm trying to spoil as little as possible.

    Today, on a very special episode of Quest for Glory 4...


    Magic User 63 - The Heart of the Matter

    Set Music - Tanya and Toby

    WbvcO.png

    F7bDD.png Good morning, staff. Today is the day that shit gets done.

    To-Do:
    - Townsfolk:
    -- Domovoi
    --- Wants me to save Tanya from the castle, using doll
    -- Innkeeper Yuri and wife
    --- Missing daughter Tanya
    --- Vampire in Castle Borgov, cared for by 'Aunt Trina'
    --- Guarded by Toby the ape

    - Fortune: 4 Folks that affect me
    -- Queen of Swords - Katrina!
    --- Dark Master!
    --- Either deceiver or deceived
    --- Suffered hardships in past
    --- Bound to the present
    --- In love with me (real?)
    --- Cares for Tanya in Castle
    --- Wants me to prove my worth
    --- Goals are an illusion?
    --- Why bring me here? To get the rituals

    - MISC
    -- Get Erana's staff in front of town
    --- Cast Destiny Spell
    --- Requires one dead thing and one living thing to sacrifice itself
    --- Faeries want me to bring it to them


    F7bDD.png Saving Tanya ought to impress a whole host of folks. But first...breakfast, of course!

    8Dbts.png

    F7bDD.png Hey, guys. I'm going to need to load up on garlic this morning, because I have a castle to infiltrate. Still haven't figured out exactly how I'm going to deal with that whole sacrifice business, though. You folks have any ideas?

    AEayq.png ...
    WxgZ7.png ...

    F7bDD.png Huge help, guys. Well, think fast, because at some point I'm just going to have to start spraying Flame Darts until it all works....I'll just let myself out.

    mV9pH.png

    F7bDD.png To the cemetery!

    I2I42.png

    F7bDD.png Now, I know Igor gave me the key and all, but I'm a wizard. And wizards simply don't roll that way. Open!

    AU8tD.png

    F7bDD.png And, in we go.

    IIATK.png

    F7bDD.png Here, though, I'm using the key. Don't tell any other wizards, it's embarrassing.

    axH7w.png

    F7bDD.png No problem. Now, straight to Tanya's room!

    PMsD0.png

    F7bDD.png Err...Tanya?

    mQ1JX.png The monster doesn't seem to like you letting light into the room. Maybe you would have better luck at night.

    F7bDD.png What's that, John? You think I should wait until nightfall to save a vampire? Fine, I'll just explore the rest of this place, then.

    MGYiW.png

    F7bDD.png Hello? Anyone home? Someone's here to prove how useful they really are...nobody? Oh well, I guess you're all sleeping.

    KLT95.png

    F7bDD.png Hmm...this place is new, I wonder what's down this way?

    WIOcF.png

    F7bDD.png Yet another unused bed. And a giant fucking chest. Let's Trigger to make sure it's not magically enchanted...

    KRP5Y.png

    F7bDD.png Huh, I guess it's magically enchanted, then. But I know something you don't know, Mr. Wraith...

    AO1dF.png

    F7bDD.png I am also magically enchanted.

    mQ1JX.png Finally, the Wraith vanishes under the force of your onslaught, its ties to this world severed at last. In the chest you find a small flask labelled "Healing" and 25 Crowns. Pretty nice for a few minutes work!

    F7bDD.png Sure, but lousy for killing time until nightfall. Guess I'll just have to grind magic again until the sun sets outside...

    ...That evening...

    W6bvW.png

    F7bDD.png Okay, back to Tanya...

    bWxXO.png

    nRVC6.png Who is it this time, Toby?

    zFeJB.png Rorrah graraff hroorarrr.

    F7bDD.png I think that's Ape for "Your Hero and Savior."

    nRVC6.png Hello. Do you live in the castle now too?

    F7bDD.png Don't remember me, then? Maybe you'll remember this doll...

    nRVC6.png What's that you got? Toby, let him in.

    zFeJB.png Rorr, arraghra rarrar.

    nRVC6.png Toby, he has our dolly!

    4HOUP.png
    +15 Give the Doll to Tanya (295)

    nRVC6.png Oh, Vana, I thought I lost you! Look, Toby! It's Vana. Thank you for bringing her to me. I thought she was lost. Where did you find her?

    F7bDD.png It was at the inn. The folks there are fairly insane about garlic, though, so you may want to be careful with that. It's pretty sad, really.

    Ya4r7.png

    nRVC6.png If I went back to the Inn, I'd never be afraid of the dark again.

    zFeJB.png Rrrooghra arrogrooora.

    nRVC6.png Toby says that everyone would be afraid of me now. I don't want them to be afraid of me.

    F7bDD.png I don't think that'd be a problem. Your mommy cries herself to sleep at night. It makes it hard to get a decent night's rest there, actually.

    1n7u5.png

    nRVC6.png I miss my Mommy. Sometimes I want to cry but I can't anymore. I just feel sad.

    F7bDD.png Actually, on that subject, there may be a way to make you a normal person again. We can use Erana's Staff in front of town to do it.

    VLG8V.png

    nRVC6.png I like the Staff. It always made such pretty flowers in town. You say it will make me all better and I won't be a Bad Thing anymore?

    F7bDD.png Sure, except...never mind.

    xwMuB.png

    nRVC6.png Oh, Toby! I can see Mommy and Daddy again!

    zFeJB.png Grorarro ooraroogt?

    nRVC6.png Toby asks what else will the staff do?

    F7bDD.png Well...it may require a sacrifice to bring you back to life...

    mysO6.png

    zFeJB.png Rrorra grourraoo.

    nRVC6.png Toby says he understands. He says you should take us to the Staff now, so I can be with Mommy and Daddy again!

    F7bDD.png Well...okay, let's get out of here, then...

    0IkCy.png

    F7bDD.png ...and here we are! Let me just start up the ritual, and see if the folks at the inn figured out who to use as a sacrifice...

    The Sacrifice of Life for Love. Your love for the child is great.

    F7bDD.png ...wait, hold on a second, I barely know...

    You see Toby silently nod his head.

    F7bDD.png ...I'll shut up now...

    Will you trade your Life to give Life to the child?

    bHLAo.png

    Will you die willingly for the one you love?

    uxDtL.png Uh huh.

    nRVC6.png No, Toby! No!

    So shall the sacrifice be done!

    GgDvI.gif

    So is the Sacrifice complete! I am again the Staff of Erana.

    mjjXU.png
    +25 Save Tanya and Get Staff of Erana (310)

    O9Kcy.png
    woCxW.png I love you too, Toby.

    F7bDD.png ...Tanya, we should probably get to the inn...

    mQ1JX.png You take the sobbing child in your arms and carry her to the Inn. You awaken her parents and are overwhelmed by their gratitude and joy. It is long before you manage to escape to the peace of your own room for what is left of the night.

    HPTJz.png

    F7bDD.png Well, that was some night. Breakfast?

    qSCVP.png

    F7bDD.png So, after all that time I gave you, it was the monster that gave himself up for her life. Aren't you so glad you tried to keep her from him for all that time?

    M89ra.png

    AEayq.png He may have looked like a monster, but he obviously had a heart and mind of great kindness.

    F7bDD.png Damn straight. To Toby!

    Oh, and Tanya, while you're here, is there anything else you can tell me about Katrina or Ad Avis?


    woCxW.png I didn't like him. He didn't like me. He didn't like Katrina, either. They were always having fights, but he had to do what she told him to do. That made him very mad.

    F7bDD.png Heh, now that is funny. Makes me like Katrina even more, actually.

    Now that I have the Staff, what's the next step again?

    F7bDD.png Suppose I should go find those fairies, and see why they were so interested in having me bring this staff to them. I'll just kill time until night...and then...

    9KcsC.png

    F7bDD.png Hello? Fairies?

    4vbVy.png

    F7bDD.png Good news. I managed to get this Staff of Erana, and...

    5l6TS.png

    F7bDD.png Hey! The fuck is this?

    JqmUI.png The human has returned with the Staff. We shall finally gain what we have sought for so long. Staff of Erana, hear my command! I, Tatiana, Queen of the Faerie Folk, summon thee and claim thee for my own!

    F7bDD.png Aww, hell no!

    JqmUI.png Staff, hear my command! Thou shalt hear and obey my words. I am thy master now!

    uMzXs.png

    mQ1JX.png You feel an incredible rush of magical energy filling you. It tickles. You hear a voice in your head:

    I am now the Staff of the Hero. He is the hand of destiny, and shall restore the spirit of Erana.

    F7bDD.png Hey, faeries! Guess what? Turns out I just remembered another spell!

    c8zpy.png Summon Staff: 200

    uy7Nu.png You're damned right.

    JqmUI.png So, the human has claimed the Staff of Erana? Then by his death, the Staff shall be mine! Guards, destroy that human creature!

    uy7Nu.png With what, your magic? Reversal, bitch!

    JqmUI.png The human has a spell which reverses spells. Use your area attacks!

    uy7Nu.png And now you've officially crossed the line. Eat Darkmagic vengeance, bitch!

    EO4jd.gif

    mQ1JX.png A voice sounds in your mind: "Hand of Destiny, you are now triumphant. She who would use me for her own glory is defeated. You shall now have the spell of Resistance.

    7RPmr.png Resistance: 100

    uy7Nu.png Good deal...and what's this?

    I28Qf.png

    uy7Nu.png Poor Gregor, probably also tricked and possibly killed by those bitches. It's been a long couple days, though. Time to head back to the inn for a good night's sleep.

    503VM.png

    uy7Nu.png Up and over...

    UEHW6.png

    uy7Nu.png Hero with Erana's Staff, coming through...let me in!

    LoBTQ.png

    uy7Nu.png Aww...guys! Your Hero has arrived! And I come bearing the Staff of Erana!

    Ks1TE.png It sounds like you have been through many dangers in Mordavia.

    PcvgA.png It seems you are a very brave Hero here.

    VTLlM.png Can I have your autograph?

    uy7Nu.png Of course, anything for my adoring fans!

    mQ1JX.png You find yourself signing your autograph for everyone here and getting a bad case of writer's cramp. Such is the price of glory.

    uy7Nu.png So, fans, any gossip that might be useful to me tonight?

    Ks1TE.png Oh, very well. Maybe we do gossip once in a while.

    PcvgA.png Perhaps we do tell things about others occasionally.

    VTLlM.png But we never repeat gossip, so try to get it straight the first time we tell it.

    Ks1TE.png Actually, this gossip is about you.

    PcvgA.png Someone overheard Tanya playing where the staff used to be.

    VTLlM.png She was singing, 'Trina's in love. Trina loves a human. Trina's in love.'

    Ks1TE.png Since you are the only human having any dealings with that Vampire...

    PcvgA.png We thought you might be interested in that story..

    VTLlM.png You can never tell about some people, unless you're a gossip.

    uy7Nu.png That's...good to know, actually.

    To-Do:
    -- Queen of Swords - Katrina! - Dark Master!
    --- In love with me (real?!)


    uy7Nu.png I always enjoy a good showering of praise...but what I can really use is a good night's sleep.

    x1Hjr.png

    wJkb7.png Finally!

    qcDhM.png

    F7bDD.png What's this, now?

    mQ1JX.png The note says "Meet me at the castle gates tonight. We have much to talk about. -- Katrina"

    F7bDD.png Yep, even the Dark Master is aware of how awesome I am now. Everything's coming up Jim Darkmagic!

    So, what are you going to name the new staff? Staff of Erana is kind of a mouthful.

    Erana's Shaft? No, no, that's terrible.
    Shaft-rana? Nope.
    Stana? Eh..


    Yeah, I got nothing.

    It calls itself Staff of the Hero.

    And it's not like
    you're going to have it very long


    Also, I'm starting to wonder who you'll romance in QfGV
    Since Wizards can romance both Katrina and Erana.

    I picked the latter for my Paladin, especially since the former wasn't a choice.

    Edit: Considering this is Jim, he'll probably try to romance EVERYONE. Even Rakeesh.

    Well, yeah, but that's even more of a mouthful. :P

  • gjaustingjaustin Registered User regular
    But it's so Heroic sounding!

    What about if we call it & (or the staff formerly known as the Staff of Erana)?

  • NocrenNocren Lt Futz, Back in Action North CarolinaRegistered User regular
    That QfGV mention reminds me of the paladin's opening.
    Rakeesh greats you in Silmaria after Erasmus summons.
    Rakeesh: My Friend! There is much work to be done here and I brought Soulforge for you to use!
    (if you played paladin in 4)
    R: I see you already have a paladin sword....

    If you skipped classes and didn't get Pytor's sword you would use Soulforge instead. I think Rakeesh is pretty much retired at that point and mostly busy with investigating the major plot of the game's background (Major story event that sets QfG5 in motion, but happens before you even start playing)
    of finding out who killed the King while you're busy competing for the throne. I think he is also making sure that you're safe during the games as well.
