Quote from: Sir Perceval of Daventry on March 05, 2011, 12:34:36 AMA few questions:1) Alex has been in a coma for a little over a day or so by the end of Episode 3, yet his hair is still as spikey as when he is awake; In fact, it's not even slightly different. How is this possible? Does Cassima gel his hair for him while he's sleeping; if so, why? Is his stylishness that important while he's asleep?

The BCS members have apparently (for their own reasons) wanted to build up the house of Daventry into successful gentlemen adventurers (for instance, it seems to have been important that Alexander know some magic; it seems to have been equally important that he learn this on his own without Manannan's direct assistance). You can't do that if you don't present challenges. The lion after all presents only a minor hurdle to a successfully prepared Graham (you can't even get to it without having one of two ways to handle it, IIRC). It seems to me that the BCS would likely have known this.

Quote from: Delling on March 05, 2011, 07:55:34 AM6) Perhaps, he means that she chose the path that included having her memory wiped when she resisted going along with the plan. I mean, come on, he's a machiavellian Xanatos-type schemer: we cannot expect his statements to not have a convoluted twisted perspective and psychology under it. "It's totes your fault that we had to erase your memory, Val-pal."
Quote from: Cez on March 05, 2011, 03:58:30 AMfor someone who apparently hates TSL like you say you do, you certainly spend a lot of time analyzing the story Wait until the story is complete. Questions shall be answered. However, just for fun... Why didn't the Fates help Titania and Oberon find Edgar when he was kidnapped by Lolotte? Especially if he was their niece's son? I mean, the Fates being the Fates know exactly what would happen, or where Edgar would have been, right? Why didn't they do something earlier to stop Malicia from going bad, or at least warn Titania that that would happen? especially if they were their aunt as well. Could the Fates have other reasons? At least it seems to me that would be the easier answer to not say there were big plot holes in KQ4 and KQ7.And Alex's gel is the extra strong stuff. But..... really? That's like asking why Alexander doesn't get wet after he goes into the sea in past King's Quests.And, also, you are welcomed to go make the game where Rosella and Edgar get married in Etherea. We chose for them to be married in the Green Isles. Oh, but wait, you probably won't be able because with the deal with Telltale probably nobody else can really be making games... which is very funny that you are so happy about that when 6 months ago you were so adamant about no specific group ever having exclusive rights to this license so that everybody could have their visions of King's Quest. I say plot hole!
