WomanD.cre

Hello!

Any idea of the quest involving this character? NI reports it to be used in-game but it must be something that has been cut...

This was a large dream sequence; something about Bhaal and a bunch of tests to determine if you're good or evil. Or something. All of it was removed (you'll see a bunch of these characters ending with "D").

How much work is entailed in restoring this? Maybe making it an optional install, just so the old people like me can see what the Devs meant to put in the game?

I haven't taken a look at this myself. devSin will have the best idea here. But having a quick skim reveals that a lot of area graphics are missing from this segment.

Yes, it was supposed to have several areas (there are some incomplete AREs in the 2630 range or so that were work-in-progress for this stuff). There's no chance of this sequence ever being restored.

Basically, you'd face a series of "tests" in a number of areas, acting based upon your alignment (very similar to the Abyss tests in SoA). So you'd have a poisoned man that you could save from gnolls; a wizard who needs a powerful potion to save himself (but that you could decide to drink instead); an evil paladin who will attempt to get your aid in destroying a friendly ogre; etc. Stuff like that, and all the while, there'd be a disembodied voice trying to get you to give in to your evil nature (with a number of comments before and after each "test"). It's way too involved to be restored, and really very little beyond what can be inferred from the remaining strings is actually in the game.

Oh, okay. I had no real idea what is was about :) The general gist is enough to satisfy my curiosity.

I doesn't really seem like the sequence is helpful to the story in any way, so I can understand why it was left out.
