This looks fantastic!
« on: January 18, 2005, 05:32:49 PM »
Sorry if I'm slow off the mark, but this mod just came to my attention.

I must say I am really impressed by what you have planned, and of course, your beautiful singing voice! As a long-time "Anomen Advocate", I'm so pleased that you decided to explore this part of his storyline, and I can't wait until you're done so I can try it out. I'll try my hardest not to lurk and ask "Is it done yet?" every few days!

A couple of questions/comments; I'll spoiler-ize them in the unlikely chance someone doesn't know how all the permutations of Anomen's storyline play out.

If the player chooses the CN path and has Anomen confront Saerk after the death of Moira, will there be a way for Anomen to opt out/be talked out of killing Surayah? Or is he just given the option of making amends after the fact? To be honest, it drives me nuts that the PC can't intervene more to stop some of the deadlier NPC vs NPC interactions like the fight between Keldorn and CN Anomen. Of course, in this case, one could argue that the killing of Surayah is so unexpected and so quick that it makes sense that the PC wouldn't have a chance to stop it.

I'll also be very interested in seeing how you handle the confrontation LG Anomen-in-romance-with-PC has with Saerk once he finds out for certain that Saerk is responsible for Moira's death. Anomen's romantic involvement with Surayah will be precluded, but if Surayah has been a member of the party and that's how they find out that she's Saerk's daughter it should be a juicy bit of interaction.

Like I said, I can't wait!

I'm glad to hear you are interested in this mod, and I applaud your future efforts to not ask me, "Is it done yet?" :)

It'll be amends after the fact.

This romance cutscene will play out with all the original content, except for maybe an interjection if she is in the party at the point after Anomen is talked down by the PC where he questions Saerk about what his daughter thinks of him. Surayah should confess her identity in the LG path after Anomen passes his test, whether she or the PC is romancing him.
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.

Between my kids and my job, I get plenty of that myself, so I know how irritating it is.  :)

Ah, I see. Sounds like I'm going to have to play it through a few times to get all the different variations!

Yes, this was one of my sneaky design ploys -- trying to enhance replay value! Somehow, the companion headaches of working with Anomen's different tracks did not smack me over the head like a proverbial frying pan early on!  :)

Yeah, neriana has mentioned that modders hate Anomen because you have to code for so many different Anomens.

I have noted, however, that although modders may not like writing for Anomen, there seem to be a lot of fanfic writers who enjoy it. I wonder why that is.
