Arawn discovers a dark secret that the empire hides and Arthur plans to strike back at Lidia.
Disclaimer: I donâ€™t feel like pretending I donâ€™t know what is going to happen, and writing a section without spoilers and then one with them, as Iâ€™ve played the game. This post will contain massive spoilers to the whole plot. If you donâ€™t want to be spoiled, then donâ€™t read on. I wonâ€™t spoil anything simply for the sake of spoiling it, no needless spoilers, but they will be there. Final warning.
Well, I am glad that this whole Lidia thing didnâ€™t turn out as bad as I thought it would. They seemed to effectively replace some of what Gaius did with her. In the game they kind of raided the city and Gaius was in charge, getting pissed off at them and then there was just this back and forth between them. I still think that would have been better as it develops Gaius and just the connection he has with this battle that is going on, but at least the actual events didnâ€™t change TOO much, they just changed what Imperial they happen with.
Things seem to have come to a good place with Octavia as well. Although her introduction was HUGELY different from that of the game, she still kind of wound up with Arawn in the same means. They found out about the corpses, Arawn knows if Octavia goes back sheâ€™ll be used as another corpse, and so on. However things didnâ€™t quite resolve in this episode so Iâ€™m kind of concerned if Octavia will join as just a soldier or if they will stick with the game and have Octavia misunderstand Arawnâ€™s words, thinking heâ€™s proposing to her. It was one of the better parts other game how all these women were not just with Arawn but were effectively officially his wives. Octavia joining that group was a good part of everything and I hope they donâ€™t ignore it. They are making a lot of changes while at the same time still being somewhat the same overall with the game, but the Octavia thing is a small enough they may change but really, although it seems small, it does amount to something a bit bigger, which is why I donâ€™t want them to do anything.
Iâ€™m most concerned with Taliesin though. Itâ€™s fine if they tweak Octaviaâ€™s story a bit but I still strongly believe Taliesin is one of the most important characters ion the whole game. He single handedly saves everyoneâ€™s life like three times plus a big sacrifice. If they mess him up Iâ€™ll be seriously pissed as I really think it will affect the integrity of the overall story.
