Sefaj, I feel, would have peetered out if he stayed around too long. I think he was a great character that really embodied the 'be a badass IC, but don't be a dick IC' mentality - but if he just hung around forever I think that would have been horribly diluted. I loved the way I went out in that scene, and admittedly, I stole the line from Assassins Creed, but goddamn did it not sound amazing at the time.
Don't worry folks, I've been lobbying to put the Jade Crosses RPT up as a three part submission for the last few months. It'll go up one of these days, edited so we don't have a thousand lines of screen scroll combat there.
