I'm just curious, really, but I was wondering just how many of you are planning on redeeming Zaeriina? It won't be an easy feat! ;)

For the first play threw I'll just go evil all the way. However in my second i'll take a shot at redemtion.
"Who--who are you?"
"Who? Who is but the form following the function of what... and what I am is a man in a mask."
"I can see that"
"Of course you can. I'm not questioning your powers of observation, I'm merely remarking on the paradox of asking a masked man who he is."

Yes. On the one hand, I generally like the idea of redemption, as long as it is a more or less sensible possibility for the character (there are some, like Tsujatha, where I just don't think it's possible without giving up the original character).
And, on the other hand, I just like trying out different possibilities, so since she's going to have a redemption option, I definitely try it. And if it isnt't going to be easy, all the better. ;-)

I will try to redeem her :) But on the second run :twisted:

Yes. I'll probably end up trying all different "paths" you can take, including the redemption and the screwed up evil stuff.

Harlequin,

Hate to say it, but the poll question is flawed. You should have included the option "I plan on playing both paths". Yes, I plan on redeeming Zaeriina, but on my second play through. That's probably the main reason that the "yes" option is nearly unanimous. Zaeriina is a complex character and, as such, many of us will want to explore all of the facets of her character.

I plan on redeeming her on my first run because I'm using my trusty Inquisitor who is I think on his 6 or 7th run through BG2.

Edited. I actually was just refering to generally, but I see your point. New option added for anyone who hasn't already voted ;)

Actually it was perfectly fine before. It wasn't 'Are you going to redeem her or never going to redeem her' it was just a 'will you redeem her'. So....

I probably will redeem her, yes. Screwed up evil stuff has never really been to my taste. Sides, redeeming her seems like you're actually doing anything. Dragging her down in your own pool of madness is too easy.

I voted no since I'll probably play her through once, and then get distracted by other mods.

But if that doesn't happen, I will redeem her on a second runthru
