I feel immensely disappointed that I missed most of the Hasan saga.

did you just meet a ridiculously unfuckable psychotic female character? It's 75% likely that Is_Friday is playing it! unfuckable, unwantable, unloveable, poorly played, stereotype-driven, abusive, and shallow!

Romance and sexual insecurity also led to pretty much every unhinged thing Takharion did, up to and include trying to kill Kitrix.  #sorrynotsorry

This romance thing made me think of this female assassin that I was trying to entwine in a romantic partnership with a character who later ended up leading the guild.  She betrayed me like three times. It was so weird

First she snitched me out. When I enterer her apartment, she had a templar waiting for me behind a closed curtain. I walk into the apartment, neighbouring rooms curtain is closed. I quickly steal her apartment key, tug the curtain open, there is a templar behind it. I open the door and bolt.

Somehow I forgive that. Talked the templar off my back. Second time. In her apartment, I am teaching her cures and poisons. I give her terradin and she asks me if I got cures to terradin yet. I say no. She stabs me with it :).

I forgive that too after KOing her, but geas her to watch, track, and gather info on a Kuraci agent, in preparation for an assassination.

She gives up the plan to assassinate her to that Agent.

Romance is a powerful thing. I ended up suffering 3 betrayals from the same person, just because I had the hots for her and had a desire for a stealth/crime based romance plot.

I'm curious what happened to that character to this day. She dissapeared  at some point. I looked for her. Dont remember if I missed her, or just wanted to kill her.

Mmm. I'd like to hope that comment was tongue in cheek, truth be said. Just badly phrased. Hardly was a need to completely obliterate it.  But I dunno.

I love Zalanthas.
Ditto.


I played Axhimas. She -hated- Maristen.  She and cohorts were furious when she was cock blocked by the family and her murderous plans were foiled. Good times!

I feel like I remember being... coerced into paying for something I never asked for at least once with Tithian. Grr.

Sounds about right!

Tithian was an experiment in bringing a shady ostentatious crime boss concept to Tuluk. It proved to be harder in execution when new... ahem... debt collectors would be hired, receive their uniform, and then disappear or die immediately.

Fun fact: Tithian's employees were all issued letters of marque that were supposed to function as a get-out-of-jail-free-or-at-a-discount card if they were somehow jailed in the course of fulfilling debt recovery duties. Sometimes, they might even work, depending on the Templar that jails you!
All the world will be your enemy. When they catch you, they will kill you. But first they must catch you; digger, listener, runner, Prince with the swift warning. Be cunning, and full of tricks, and your people will never be destroyed.

(laughs) I'd wondered who was behind the screen on that one. Glad to see it was yet another vet and I'm glad I got to play with you!

It isn't -quite- how your character might have perceived it, though. It only went down that way because Maristen, though angry and shocked, didn't hate Axhimas (though he didn't like her much either) and didn't want her to die. Since he felt that way and wanted the two of them to somehow coexist, her plans were outed and she didn't end up face down in the street. The option was on the table then, but afterwards, not again as we both know. That knife literally cut both ways.

It was awesome. It was Zalanthas.

My PC loved Maristen and tried to kill him anyway.
He got promoted and became autonomous. This ran counter to my PCs more fuedal outlook on life. She felt  (rightly or not) that she'd been a king maker, but she wasn't getting the collaboration, or information she thought she deserved. My PC was very disappointed in Maristen. I the player thought he was amazing and i'm a Mari fan.

To be fair, Aximas did all the work and took all the risk.

I was trying not to out you!

Axhi was a nepotist and anyone not family wasn't family.

God I love this game.

Oh my gosh!

You just made me gasp aloud and burst into tears and laugh happily all at the same time.  Thank you so much for being so amazing. Ah.. the memories and the bios. Never as many as a person wants to write, unfortunately.

That PUSH into adulthood that the both of you gave my character was very disorienting and immersive. It actually changed the way I approached the game as a player over time, helping to take me a bit out of 'care bear' mode and into the mindset of 'Murder, Corruption, Betrayal'. I can't say that I'm perfect even now, but I appreciate that kick out of the 'nest' so to speak. Mari would have never lasted without grief, betrayal and anger tempering the more gentle aspects of his personality. Funnily enough, if it hadn't been for this event in his life, he might not have been family at all because he'd have likely remained too soft to have survived.

Two things:

Barzalene - My favorite memory was laughing with you, drunk off our asses in the gardens in Tuluk with one of the hunters. All of us trying to make our way back the the compound and almost failing miserably as we kept falling into the flowers.

ShaLeah - The one memory that stands out is trying so hard to suppress laughter and almost clinging to one another as it slipped out uncontrolled anyway after one social event ended in that 'grand announcement'.
