A concern...
« on: October 11, 2011, 05:38:50 PM »
I only have one real critique of the game so far (which I am loving)... In King's Quest VII, Lady Maab tells Valanice that she will send her only good dreams for the rest of her life if they succeed in saving Eldritch, and they do. I realize a great deal of Valanice's conflict in TSL is her memory, but... a scene in episode 3 (avoiding spoilers)... is definitely a bad dream. Phoenix Online has paid so much attention to previous games. I just hope to see Maab's promise addressed before the end of the game.

What bad dream are you referring to exactly?  You're more than welcome to post spoilers, you can just click the "Spoiler Text" button above and type within there to hide them from people who don't want to see them.

We actually do address that eventually. You'll just have to keep playing to find out the reason!

Good to know (about spoiler text).

That's exactly what I meant. I don't know about your interpretation though. The dream "ends" the same as it began, with Valanice alone. Obviously, I'm willing to wait it out and see. It just seems to me there must be something/someone REALLY powerful in the villain seat if they can override--even for a moment--the will of a dream weaver.

Think about all the other spells/effects on the Green Isles that are going on. The prince being changed back into a beast, newer maps fading at the map shop (or something along those lines), etc. Lots of spells/enchantments are being reversed here and it wouldn't surprise me that Maab's gift was reversed as well. That's what I think is going on.

Yeah - you're almost better off doing a google search. :P
