Title: Quick question regarding ToB (no it's not about progress)
Post by: Cal Jones on August 04, 2008, 02:04:12 PM
Just want to know what happens when you enter the ToB section with Keto in party. Does she disappear, or does she just sit there, mute, for the duration? (I'm intending to swap her out for Sarevok at that point, to be honest).

Cal, I'm afraid I don't know the answer to your question, but I too plan to swap Keto for Sarevok in ToB.

In case you didn't know, Keto's wine bottle is an immovable object and she gives it to the PC if she ever leaves the group.  I think this is a known issue, but I can only assume that it's too difficult to fix, otherwise it would've been done by now.  Anyway, using Shadow Keeper it's possible to remove the bottle completely, or it can be transferred between characters' inventories (useful if Keto were to leave the group for a short time then rejoin). If you do remove it completely but then need it back at some point, Shadow Keeper can also add items to a character's inventory by selecting the blank entry you want the item to occupy, clicking Change Item and selecting the item from the list ("Keto's Bottle of Wine" is in the Potion category, so you'll need to scroll down the list).

I hope this is a help to you.

I recall being annoyed by that bottle as well.

She's there, mute. I'm sure something will be done about the bottle, when Keto ToB is ready. (Hey, maybe she'll finally share!)

Well something a bit odd did happen, actually - I had Keto and Kelsey in party after beating Jonny boy in Hell, but when they popped up in the Sacred Grove, Keto had been renamed "what the hells am I going to do now?" or something to that effect, and Kelsey was called "If only they could see me now." I managed to fix Kelsey using the K thing, but didn't work for Keto. I ended up having to dump her in the Sacred Grove (but as I was going to ditch her for Sarevok anyway, it didn't matter at that point). At least she got to walk home from there rather than being imploded in the pocket plane... Though I am stuck with that blasted bottle.  >:(

Really enjoyed playing her though, especially the bard contest bit, so I do hope a ToB segment happens some day. Was nice to see an NPC who actually gave a rat's ass about Yoshimo instead of just condemning him as a traitor.

Any official answer on this question?

I'm about to finish up SOA with Keto and Saerileth who has TOB content. So I wanted to continue on in TOB with Keto figuring she would work but be silent.

Is it going to cause me issues in my game?

Thanks
Really enjoying Keto BTW! Great job on her!

I haven't heard of anybody else with that problem. You should be fine.

Thanks. I'll definitally miss her personality though!

Necroposting is bad: hungry Kulyoks will come and get all your figs, dates and grapes. And eat them!
To your question: if an NPC does not have a string fixer in ToB, yes, there's a chance his or her lines will get scrambled and there is nothing you can do about it. Write a string fixer. Or, better yet, develop some ToB content soon. :)

The choice is necromancy or starting a wholly new topic about exactly the same question. Seems to me that necromancy is the simpler solution.

Okay, I'll play as Captain Obvious here. The anti-necromancy stance has a reason. When you're talking in an active thread, it assumes all participants are able to reply, that is, if you ask a question, they're free to choose whether to reply to you or not; if you troll them, provoke them or bite them, they have a chance to snap back; if you're invoking a moderator, it is to deal with a current issue and not wasting their time; and so on.

However, replying to a long-dead thread, in my eyes, is like talking to absent people: if you ask them a question many years later, they won't be able to participate answer; if you invent a sarcastic reply, it's like kicking a defenseless person - again, they can't answer. So, it's best to speak to the living - that is, start a new thread, possibly with a link to the old one.
