Originally written by The Duke:

Its a very complicated matter, but when it comes to it I think the rebels are the lesser of two evils. They have a much greater capacity for change. The shapers have been set in their ways for much too long to change them. The rebels may currently be overzealos due to some of the Drakons, but I have faith that their leader will rein them in and that they will see reason. :D
Heh, not so sure about all that, I mean, Ghladring seems perfectly happy with setting loose the unbound and burning the world and murdering millions of innocents.

The way I see it, the Drakons are potentially even worse than the Shapers, because they seem to have absolutely no moral reservations about the wholesale slaughter of anything that isn't a drakon, for the most part (asides from that random Trakovite drakon), and seem to be becoming more and more arrogant with each generation. There really doesn't seem to be anyone to reign them in, as far as we have seen.

I think the rebellion definitely has redeeming factors, namely some of the serviles, the drayks, and the human rebels. However, the drakons definitely dominate the faction.

Now, personally, I would say the Trakovites are the best, simply because Shaping seems WAY to dangerous a power to me. To much playing god :P

But yeah, since the drakons are in control, I maintain that the Shapers are better. A lesser of two evils.

Well, I think as far as the story goes, the Shapers, in as far as even though the government is oppressive at times, they keep the peace, protect the people, and do their best to keep shaping from getting out of hand.

Still... I love the drayks and drakons, they're so much fun to have as your creations, and at the very least, I definitely like the rebel ending of G4 where you end up being a extremely powerful leader and ruler.

Oh lord... the idea of playing as a Drakon... I have to say, I would absolutely love it :P

Not quite sure how that would work out, because as was said earlier, it would be rather overpowered, but still, it would be one hell of a joy ride.

I definitely like increase in the number of factions, providing at the very least 5 different endings.

Definitely very, very excited for this.

Oh, and hurray for a in game editor :P The constant typing of "iamweak" and "iampoor" almost gave me carpal tunnel :D

Heh... I've been upstairs in my room most of today because I'm sick, just walked down to the mailbox and my package was there.

Thanks for the cheats though!

I just finished the shaper ending, and admitedly used every canister I could get my hands on. I think you end up being a lab rat in the shaper ending no matter what, though in the case of using lots of canisters, you end up getting exiled to the Forgotten Lands.

I just finished going through the game, on the Shaper ending, and haven't gotten my hint book yet. I was wondering if someone who had it could list the cheats for me, because I was planning on running through the game again as a rebel, starting out tonight (no hw, so what else am I going to do), and I didn't feel like taking quite as long this time. Anyway, if anyone could post those that would be great!
