One thing to be brought into discussion : Callisto's village was raided by a band of drow and surface elves. That is EXTREMELY unusual. Will the mod explain this strange alliance ?
Real sucks, Barca rules !

I like Real only when it plays in Segunda Division !

It is said that Mount Celestia is a place of perfection. None else than Saerileth could have been the symbol of its splendor.

It's all about money, slavery, killing, what have you. Even enemies can have a common interest and work together towards it. Or it could be any other thing. It'll be explained in the mod.

    Yes, the drow will work together with an enemy until they reach their goal, then take the heads of their stupid allies as trophies for the Spider Queen. I have a feeling that Callisto's search for the surface elf leader wil be fruitless...  :D
    But my opinion is that it would need more than simple pillage for drow and surface elves to overcome their racial hate for each other.

Funny that you said that. Not to give away too much of the plot, the surface leader will be found. Not in the situation he thought he would be in.

    One of the biggest mistakes a surface dwellers can make is to ally with drow.  :D

Some would say one of the worst mistakes the Drow can make is to slaughter the family and friends of anyone who happens to fall into the lap of a godchild with the power to destroy their entire city.... :roll:

But I really look forward to the explanation Revan offers! :thumbsup:

Looks like the drow will meet their match when it comes pay day when Cal meets up with them.

True.

She's a sociopath among other mental disorders. I did some research and found this brief outline, which fits her quite well.

Quote
Common characteristics of people with antisocial personality disorder include:

Persistent lying or stealing
Recurring difficulties with the law
Tendency to violate the rights of others (property, physical, sexual, emotional, legal)
Aggressive, often violent behavior; prone to getting involved in fights
Inability to keep a job
A persistent agitated or depressed feeling (dysphoria)
Inability to tolerate boredom
Disregard for the safety of self or others
A childhood diagnosis of conduct disorders
Lack of remorse for hurting others
Superficial wit and charm
Impulsiveness
A sense of extreme entitlement
Inability to make or keep friends
Lack of guilt
Recklessness, impulsivity

This mod will most likely be for the PG-13 crowd. It will be graphic. She will not hesitate to describe things she has done in her past, to the PC or one of the NPCs. She enjoys telling such graphic stories and seeing the look of horror on their faces.

There is an encounter with someone from her past, someone she inflict harm upon indirectly. I won't say who because I would rather not spoil that encounter. Any way she will taunt this person, in a playful way. If you have ever watched Xena with the Callisto episodes than you know who playful she was at taunting people and still had that big smile on her face as she did it.

She is without a doubt an NPC very suited for an evil group.

 Poor Joxer, he was harmless enough, now Gabrielle I could have quite happily murdered her.

 Does this Callisto have any designs upon godhood?

I only ask as earlier this morning I was watching the other Callisto and Velasca (the OC's Melinda Clarke) duke it out over ambrosia, albeit briefly before tumbling headlong into a stream of lava.

Someone is asking the right questions, I was wondering when these would be asked.

[spoiler]I am not going to give away the second half of the plot.
Lets look at her character.

She is evil, someone that can not be trusted for one thing. She is the last person I would turn my back on, just like the Xena tv series.

She is someone who seeks power over others. What better way to protect yourself from being harmed again, then by having the power to control others.[/spoiler]

I watch the Xena episodes that have Callisto in it, good for inspiration and keeping myself in character with a lunatic. A few times I wavered off course and made her "soft" but no we can't do that.  :evil
