    I wish there was a way to kill the brigand leader. It's just so wrong that in a game that's all about finding multiple solutions there's only way to do that sequence.

    Well, Elsa is enchanted such that she's an invincible warrior. Also, killing her would probably not get you the title of hero. It would get you the title of "Wanted".

    Hurrah and woohoo! You've finished the first quest. Now we head onto Shapier and do what heroes do best.

    I don't think it's in the VGA version, but the EGA version had you flying over the town for a while as the credits rolled, and then at the end of the credits, SNEAK PREVIEW of QFG2!

    Edit: Oh yeah, screens are done, fighter finale here soon.

    I always murder his son.
    Anyway, the Baron doesn't have to know that Elsa was the brigand leader.

    The first game is the only one that actually allows you to get away with such butchery, but it's not considered canon. In a later game, you can murder a person while you're robbing their house by slitting their throat while they're asleep, but he makes sounds, and the local law hears them.

    Yes. Because it's got blowing hair in the breeze and an upward angle and he's gazing off into the distance and he's not dapper. He's roguish and hand soloey.
    It's so freaking dorky looking. It's glorious.

    The VGA guy does look infinitely better with sunglasses though. I gotta say.

    That's true, but to be fair he did implicitly kill and devour his fellow thieves simply for questioning his ability to be Chief. So he's not really a great guy.

    QFG3 spoilers
    I really feel like 3 was a wasted opportunity. There's so much they could have done with the whole culture clash thing, the humans basically being an inferior race to the Liontaurs, etc. but instead it was all teh demonz!!1 And then it's over before you can actually solve the major underlying issue of fundamental distrust and discord between the races and peoples of Tarna.

    That and the Thief does jack-all the entire time.

    Yeah that always bugged me. My thief never got to do anything cool.

    I've always been pissed at how butered QG5 was compared to the demo. I missed having an eye to look and a hand to touch.

    Good, let me know the best way you find to take screenshots of it.

    On a different note:
    I'll be totally honest. I thought the EGA version had more character than the VGA version. The difference between the hero poses at the end of the game is just one item in a huge list.

    Edit Edit: Ok, all of you, even if you don't intend to play it, need to download the QFG2VGA version. They scanned in the entire F.A.C.S Booklet that came with that game, and it's flipping great.
