Re: Writing Combat Scenes

Alas, the odds of my group playing this successfully and actually having fun approach nil. They're so disorganized and inattentive that the NPCs would just beat them to a fine paste while they constantly missed their initiative. Also, they're complain because this isn't Pathfinder or Paranoia. Sorry...

Re: Writing Combat Scenes

The only problem with using combat as filler is that you're going to wind up pitting them against faceless mooks that they don't really feel the need to kill so much. But if, say, the character was hunting down the cabal of evil witches that killed her mother, or something, each one of those witches...

Re: On the Succession of the Throne

Thanks! I'm still trying to puzzle out all the family relationships in this game. As far as I can deduce, it's "Everyone but Merva, Caloris, and Mazomba is related to either Banion or Arisse"

Re: Self-set Achievement: Throne of Skulls

You can kill Togami and give Joslyn permanent, basically life-ending brain damage through the magic mirror achievement, but I'm reasonably sure that that requires the survival of Brin and Julianna, so I'd have to go with "no"

Re: Writing Combat Scenes

I attempt to put myself into the relevant character's shoes. Characters usually have a reason to fight each other, so I try to reflect that reason in the scene through both diction and through how the fight plays out. As for anecdotes, I've got this really great fight scene where the protagonist jus...

Re: Epilogue Windows (spoilers)

I can't check right now but I think that might be from when Lucille poisons you into infertility if she becomes regent, which requires you to allow Joslyn to die and never discover that she's the one trying to kill you.

Re: Favorite Pairings for Elodie (endgame spoilers)

Talarist. I mean, of course he's a cunning jerk who's probably planning on turning Nova into a puppet state, but can you honestly tell me that a Lumen Elodie with maxed intrigue would even contemplate allowing that to happen? So now you have considerable sway over Sedna and your heirs will inherit a...

On the Succession of the Throne

If Elodie dies, her maternal uncle Laurent gets the throne. If he were to die, Charlotte gets the throne, presumably followed by her younger siblings in order of their births. And then, if the youngest dies without any children, what happens? Do we know of any more blood relations to Fidelia other t...
