Last I left you, I was off to the Redcliff castle.
So the catch up is a woman comes out and convinces Bann Teagan to go into the castle to help her save her husband and child because it demanded she bring him.
Bann sneakily gives me a way via a secret passage to follow him.
SO – before I can head to the castle, I’m enlisted to help defend the village.
Please assist us, Great warrior. We want the battle over before the new episode of Grey’s Anatomy airs at 8
I actually think this was the most frustrating part of the game BECAUSE there’s a stupid bug in it that means that if a certain ‘support/side’ character in the army dies it just doesn’t progress.
I ended up constantly pausing and ensuring ALL my party members were defending him to get it to work.
Either way, they gave us a nice honoring speech.
Get into the castle and it’s a lot of expected run through rooms, clear out zombie ladies.
I did discover something cool though. If you set off Morrigan’s transform into a spider ability during battle and she lives, SHE STAYS SPIDERY.
As it turns out, the woman the lured Bann T into the castle actually neglected to mention that it was her SON possessed by the demon.
He forces Bann to attack my party. Now this I didn’t like, because he’d been so nice in the story and now I was meant to kill him? Bummer 😦
Mage dude roles in and is all with the ‘I can help, but I need to kill one of you and send Morrigan to the fade rhelm’.
Of course the kids mum volunteers are human sacrifice, and damned if I was going to suggest a replacement from my team – so off she goes.
Fade rhelm was just a quest of ‘locate boy’, ‘boy reveals as demon’, ‘fight and win’.
I did however find it amusing that the demon ever stopped touching herself in the cut scenes.
Well, that’s all so far! I have now been set on the path of finding some healing urn to save self-sacrificing woman’s husband – who also happens to be the guy Alister was easger to see.
So hey, I’ll do it for my bro – but it seems all a bit hocus pocus kids. Like the nutritional value in a happy meal – don’t put too much stock in dat.
Talk soon my lovelies!!
