Vaelis / Rowinda backstories being added

Post by jack1974 » Tue May 20, 2014 3:56 pm

They are the only two non-romanceable characters by anyone, but I just spoke with Taleweaver and he agreed to write some scenes with them, enabling their personal quests. In practice will work similar to Planet Stronghold: even if you can't romance them, you talk with them to increase the relationship and unlock a quest (which will be about their background story).
With those two sidequests I'll consider the main writing done. I might still add a few smaller quest myself like I did in Act 1 (Mormont, Kodiak, etc weren't planned).

So YOU are the reason why jack kept bugging me about giving Daronas a bigger role :)

Fear not, Daronas-shippers. He's going to get his moments in the final chapter of the story too.

Hey, based on what I've seen so far in Act I, Daronas seems to be too good a character to let him just vanish/wither away after the first chapter, so I'm very glad to hear this. :)

The writer completed Vaelis backstory ! Is VERY GOOD. It explains why Morran doesn't want you around Vaelis and why Morran isn't allowed in the town either. Good stuff 8)

I'm reading the Rowinda dialogues now and can't stop laughing in front of my monitor. They're EPIC :lol:

Code: Select all

    pl "You're not {i}that{/i} old..."
    row "Oh, I can still walk on my own two legs without having to use my staff as a crutch. And my mind is still as sharp as..."
    row "As sharp as..."
    row "..."
    pl "Rowinda?"
    row "Huh? [pname]?"
    pl "As sharp as?"
    row "As sharp as what?"
    pl "You tell me."
    row "Why should I? It's you who asked me that trick question!"
    pl "Um..."
pl=player, row=rowinda :lol:

Technically, Vaelis is allowed to come to Ninim. He just doesn't LIVE there, and it's kept intentionally unclear whether that was his choice or not :P

You meant Morran, right? :)
If at first try it doesn't explode, it ain't Jack who wrote the code.

If I understood the plot correctly Vaelis has no interest to visit the village and Morran is not allowed because of some crime in the past.
