Scanner Issue: Don't drop it. You really want to let go of something that could provide information we would have to find via trial and error away? Something that only costs an inventory space, that uses no other resource beyond that and time? I disagree with this greatly. Remember when we were worried about whether or not we could actually hurt Polaris with his own sword? That would of helped out a lot then.

Slog Issues: Grab 'dem spells if we can, skedaddle back to the shops before he turns back else we'll have to leave stuff in the dungeon. That is random. Which changes. Yep, we'll lose some stuff if we leave it, chances are. Or maybe not, concerning we know the layout will change, this has been referenced many times, but we've personally never seen it do thus. Perhaps it only changes when we leave the level? Signs point to yes.

Oric Issues: Mention name consistency, question what is even going on, don't follow. Following him is a no-no, don't want to piss off the end boss right away. Such things would go rather badly, honestly. That, and we could run into a room full of enemies, which will blissfully ignore him while going to chomp at us, which is bad for the "don't have Slog turn into a ticking time-pinata of our stuff" issues.

I do wonder how long a round/turn is outside of combat. Is it a single scene outside of combat?

I agree with everything Xanmyral said. Especially on the scanner. That could be EXTREMELY useful later on.

Slog... I can't find any way to add onto that suggestion.

On Oric, do everything Xan said, but I suggest we also ask what is with the fountains. May as well see if we can find out why we are supposed to murder Riltia.

"Hey, did you ever notice that your name is mine spelled backwards?"
Say this. Also congratulate GM on swift update speed.

Follow Oric.




(???: 13+10 Awesomeness) You try to follow Oric, but something smacks you in the butt. Within moments, you're airborne.



Riltia runs over to you. At least you're alive.











No.

Drop the giant sword and take the Heal us and...something else in Slog's inventory.
Okay well in that case...

Drop giant sword, reabsorb clot cutter, Take Healus, Increase, and one of the money types.

Then, we track back to the shop, dragging the giant sword with us, and we sell that sword, probably also the scanner (Scan sounds nice but I don't see the use for it?)

Slog is confused and has no idea what you want him to do/drop/grab, especially since your inventory is full and you're spending time chasing some dude instead. However, just to be considerate, he drops all the loot he was carrying as he de-transforms: the scanner and both types of money. What a good mercenary Slog is!

Hmm... is it bad I would respond to the "What do you do when you get out of the cell" question with "Buy pizza"?

Also, Oric's soul star, I think, is white, because of the triangles coming out of his hand when he cast that spell.

Well... Damn. ... Well. Oric is in permenant Oversoul, I think, judging by the symbols that appear when he did the magic that made us fall down. We had those exact same symbols when we did stuff while in over soul. Also, all the souls have those arrows around them, yeah? They correspond into a triangle since half are one shade, half are another shade following this pattern.

That, and we have that symbol on our chest as well, although it has other stuff too. Wish I could get a good look at the design on his shirt. Looks like... A radio tower? A tree?

Ciro: Absorb dagger, pick up scanner.

Slog: Grab money again.

Group: Head to save point/merchant area, all inventory slots are full so we gotta shuffle some things around. Again.

From what I can tell, it kinda looks like an angel. Or a cross.

Or Oric just likes fashion.

...Wait, duh, I'm stupid. Its a T. Oric is the thief.

EDIT: Hm. Disregard that, the other siblings don't have a perchance for wearing their symbols, so it looking like a T doesn't mean anything, probably.

Good job slog!

Oric seems like a pretty okay guy, all considered. Maybe he's not the villian but our key to leaving the cycle?

Also, the currencies had the same menu right? Can't we stack them?

For what, again? Not giving us the spells or dropping all our loot?
