What a horrible poster. Rentar isn't coming back. Jeff said as much, or at least intended to. And Erika, sadly, isn't coming back either.

What he said is that Rentar is still dead. He didn't comment on the suggestion that she might still appear as an undead beastie (and with Garzahd there is a precedent). That's not saying it's going to happen, but it's not impossible.

Garzahd's brief reappearance was effective in its creepiness. Once was enough, though, and I really think Jeff knows that.

—Alorael, who wouldn't be too disappointed to suddenly find a bunch of young vahnatai named Rentar. Hero worship can be a good thing.

Yes, that's why Nalyd said that he intended to. Somebody took it too literally.

Dylan X, you really need to stop telling other people they're bad posters. Your judgment is way off, and you've already been warned about it.

I know my patience with you is exhausted, and around these parts, I'm one of the patient ones. You need to stop.

phew. that was my first post in this forum for a long time, and ive already drawn the attention of the i-am-the-best-poster-brigade. i really dont want to get into flaming, so just read my post again - more carefully this time. im sure that would make you rethink your reply.

however. ill keep out of the solberg-discussion, since i havent made up my own mind about that yet. but there is one thing that i would like to have in a5:

structured quest lists.

for example, there could be a section for unending quests ("xxx will pay you for any zzz you bring him"), or for major and minor quests... you know? or show them on a kind of 'quest map'. or what about 'progress indicators'. and stuff. nothing too fancy, just whats useful.
you get the idea.

OH MY GOD IT'S THE FUNKY ****!!!

iv. The plot is very elaborate and cool. I tried for a similar level of intricacy as Geneforge 4: Rebellion.
Does this mean there will be more than one possible ending, Geneforge style? Or does it just mean more scripted characters and events? Either way is great, but an 'evil' ending for an Avernum series game would be really cool.

You lose.

I'd have expected you to think that the ending of Exile I was an "evil" ending. :P

Well, I did put evil in quotes. Interpret that as you wish.

ET is just mad because King Micah went back on his promise to make him heir after taking out Grah-Hoth.
