It's not a question of killing. It's a question of doing it with style.

—Alorael, who found that that impulse served him poorly in G4. It is remarkably possible to end up in an increasingly large brawl with explosive enemies. Sooner or later it becomes time to call it quits.

I like to run and hide and take things on one by one. Cowardly? Yes. Smart? Also yes.

Running and hiding does not sound very shaper-like. Unless you are an agent, you should feel obligated to never show your enemies the slightest sign of weakness or cowardice, no matter how pragmatic it may be.

Then again, this might be the canisters talking.

Hey, Shapers may be arrogrant, but they are also very cautious.

Delicious Vlish favored backing up and luring your enemies to their destruction. Even with using the Geneforge in GF1 if you let your enemies swarm you, then you can get slaughtered. There is nothing wrong with a tactical retreat.

I'm a servile. Serviles are plenty cowardly.

Your chances of being an official shaper in GF4 are small. Your chances of being a plucky sort with a large number of enemies after you is somewhere around 110%.

—Alorael, who thinks the right tone is set by what he thinks will eventually be the demo. Retrograde maneuvers are very important in strategy and in tactics when you've got an empire after you and no caves to hide in with unexpected bug-eyed allies.

Cowardly picking off enemies one by one from a distance was definitely a good strategy in GF1-3. But I thought from Jeff's earlier comments that he was trying to emphasise more group combat in GF4?

Speaking for one section of the game and not the whole, I can say that he has successfully made group tactics pretty much essential.

—Alorael, who did not say group combat was essential. It's almost essential, but it's not. Jeff still believes that those who really want to play a coward with a full pack of living tools and a silver tongue should be able to, and he still believes that it should be really painfully hard. This time, however, you can do it with friends!

If I could make just one wish, I would want a tasty vlish.

Geneforge IV. Still no tasty vlish.

I prefer G2..I like the Barzite ending a lot. Defeating the Shaper Council is quite a feat.

Oh yeah.. I hope in G4 that you can really meet the SC not just in ending but maybe in the midgame or something..

I can neither confirm nor deny this. Although I can say it would be quite interesting to meet South Carolina. :P

SC? Oh yes, well, while Sasha Cohen might be an, ah, interesting person to meet, I'm really not too interested in professional ice skaters.

It'd be interesting to see their reaction when you whip out a canister and chug it right in front of them.

I'd like to hear the Shaper's Council reaction to the servile in armor with baton and sword that's glowing from too many cannisters. Somehow I don't think stealth will get that past the guards.
