Is a path required?
« on: November 22, 2004, 12:43:58 PM »
Just a curiosity question, does Anomen have to take his "evil" path through his sisters murder for the story to work?
I usually take the goody goody way out and never enter Saerk's home, will that be a problem in this mod?

Thanks.

You can choose whichever path you like. There'll be different material for Anomen's CN and LG scenarios.
Newt had always suspected that people who regularly used the word "community" were using it in a very specific sense that excluded him and everyone he knew.

Anomen taking the evil path seems likely to cut Surayah's career as a bard and as a party-joinable rather short.

Lol, a DBG solution. As an NPC  I could resurrect her for sure or not?

Geez, spoilers! There are permutations where Surayah does not have to stay dead. This is tied in to the Anomen redemption business.

I'll toss my question in here, seeing as it sort of relates.

Wouldn't having Surayah and Anomen in the same party create a bit of tension?  Regardles of which path he took.

Yep. There will be tension of varying sorts. :)

I don't know if I've mentioned it before, and I'm not really keen on spoilers, but Surayah will not leap forward and announce she is Saerk Farrahd's daughter until the situation reaches a head and Anomen has to make a decision. (And I am trying to leave some wriggle room here so the PC can decide whether her motivations for keeping silent were trustworthy or not.) Between being a follower of Sune and from Calimshan, Anomen still knows enough to be critical of Surayah, and he is. The first several talks they have serve to build cameraderie between the two, and the course that follows also relies on the direction Anomen takes at Moira's death, as well as the status of an Anomen-PC romance. The focus and degree of conflict between the two is going to depend on the path you take in the game.
