    Since those loyal to Virtuebane got their names in a book, and recruited into the Bane Chosen army, is there going to be anything actually worth all our efforts at killing the countless Meer besides the stupid book?? The last fiction said we all turn into those badass hell hounds...any chance that the loyal followers might actually get that ability???

    As far as I can tell, execution errors by the team make me a lot less definite on this than I should be, the point of the story arc was that evil is bad. The bad guys had the better rewards at first, then there was a slow and gradual shift, until finally the good guy rewards were better.

    If anything there should be a specific way to reward good guys for being good all along, versus those who inevitably will switch sides once they realize the evil side's rewards are done.

    But, alas, that's not likely to happen for a lot of reasons.

    Oh, Sevin....both quests are done. There was someone at the Brit Moongate who would, if you turned in the entire Virtue set aside from the Humility Cloak, give you a Book of Truth. It was just like the old Lycaeum Book of Truth quest reward book but with no question mark.

    If you took this Book and then went to this dude Magincia Island near where the Moongate used to be, and you had a very high number of Bane points, your Book of Truth could become a Corrupted Book of Truth (or something like that) with your character's name on it.

    EM events on GL have made the concept clearer. Truth corrupted (the book). Love betrayed (Ors made to murder Dawn).

    Now, hopefully, our Courage will not fail us.

    If you look at some of the other Bane Chosen--those who were ripped apart like wet canvas and the like--I think us Bane Chosen lucked out, in the end, haha. Our fate could have been worse.

    At the beginning, there was no way I would side with the Ophidians. They had raided my third home of Delucia and my second home of Vesper in the past, and I had always viewed them as evil. However, when the Meer surfaced--having no real quarrel there--I thought about the choice and the direction the Bane were moving. Sure, the cult seemed like fun at first, but then there was talk of power, and change, and, well, all too much for me ;). Macroing Horrific Beast was troublesome enough as it was!

    Cannon evil will always be removed somehow to install a newer version; there are few static lawful evils, or choices, to be found in the game. We can dress as savages and orcs, I suppose? :)

    Sure, I could go for those traitors with the books turning into uncontrollable red creatures on login (and being uncontrollable, instantly aggro players and be attacked by players in Trammel), unable to loot anything they kill, and perma-dying on death.... :lick:

    Thanks Galen, Having tried to collect that suit before, I kinda figured that quest was gonna be another Fail as soon as I read it. Since starting the Quest, I have about 40 drops, no complete set yet - hope they unravel to something decent (probably not)

    DEV's should remove the quests from our que if they end them permanently - more trash left behind from an event, figures

    Last night, I received a corrupted spellbook in my pack after killing one of the ancient hellhounds. It was damaged, so not all of it coul dbe read, but it did have a partial name on it (can't remember off hand what the name was). You can make out the words even with the "damage" *** marks on it. It said something like given as a gift to whomever it was.

    Not sure how many would have dropped as the ancient hellhounds seemd to go pretty quick on Chessy, and I don't rememebr seeing that many around.

    Seems like the book is fairly rare [nevermind, it's not very rare lolol my bad but it is still a] nice drop

    I focused on the Blackrock Golems :x I had one piece left to get out of all four sets, and I somehow managed to get it :x

    If these events were a little more interesting we'd see player driven outcomes. IE: Roughly Equivalent rewards on both sides but the results of one side prevailing would differ from the other...

    It'd be cool to see the results the players choose.
