Alora and Edwin Friendship
« on: April 13, 2005, 04:02:15 PM »
I established this in the original Encounters mod and will be going into this more so.

In ToB Alora voiced her problems with Edwin, him being an uppity ass, etc. For those who played the mod do you think that was a good idea?

Sorry to comment here against your asking. I have not played the mod, but I have played BG1.

I have to ask, if you mean by friendship a romance between Alora and Edwin

If so  :shock:  :shock:  :shock: Alora and Edwin don't fit in my eyes. Really.

However I did not play the mod, so regarding that you may skip my opinion
Do you find it hard to be a real villian in BG2. Missing evil quests. Wondering what happens to cargo of Black Lotus? Check out my mod in progress: Mod for the Wicked http://www.geocities.com/fanaticfantasyfan/index.html or it's forum at Spellhold Studios under IE mods in progress/Mod for the Wicked.

I played the Mod, but I never got past the first Alora/PC talk, so I didn't see the Alora/Edwin things, sorry. However, Edwin should act like himself. I don't know how stable his friendship with Alora is, but knowing Edwin he wouldn't always be much comfort when someone voices his/her problems to it. If it really is too harsh, how about making a following talk in which Edwin apologises? Or rather, *tries* to apologise. lol

Romance? Oh no, no not at all. Just friends or at least best friends, at least from her perspective.

I don't see why they couldn't be friends.

The new Alora/Edwin banters in BG1NPC were some of my favourites to write (along with the Alora/Kagain ones).  So I'm definitely all for a continuation of their friendship! :)

That's the idea I got from reading their BG1 dialogues and listening to some of their soundsets. They are friends, from her point of view yes. From Edwins he may deny it but I think he likes her.

Much like how Vallygar is Mazzy's squire. Personally I like the idea.

Edwin is friends with himself, first and formost. It would be funny if Alora treated him like Mazzy treats Valygar.

He and Korgan appear to be friends.

How about Alora vs Mazzy? I mean Alora being a thief and Mazzy almost a pally.

Surrender or be squished!

I can see Alora and Mazzy being more conflicting than buds. Mazzy trys to be the upstanding halfling citizen, a goody paladin and serious most of the time. Alora is goofy, plays jokes, steals and is some what annoying.  :-D

Mazzy should try to convert Alora. That would be some funny banters.

Edwin could have friends he and Korgan are friends, judging by thier banter.
"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."
