One hell of a performance today from AnneMunition and Ezekiel_III .
At the risk of sounding a tad soppy, I feel that said performances earn the honesty to say that the intensity of emotion that Zeke was able to display during that scene coupled with the painful sincerity that Anne brought to a character with no prior backstory besides simply being Aldos sister, actually caused me to turn the volume of the stream down and to take it off of full screen because it was that convincing and raw. A knee jerk overreaction? most likely, but as I said, it warrants the honesty. So truly, as a fan, I'd like to say Thank You.
As I mentioned in the Q&A for episode 9, I do ponder the possible developments of Aldo as a character, I noted last time whether the introduction of the "Getting a taste for it" clock was a sign of a paradigm shift of Aldo walking the Carriless Path. Now with the understandable rage upon learning his beloved sisters grim fate and continued suffering, will we see the favoured son of "She Who Slays In The Dark", Carriless Firm, tempt Aldo into embracing the Goddess to aid him on this revenge tour? One can only hope.
I also hope that Geoff/@iNcontroLTV will think about investing in, if memory serves, the "Cultist" Veteran Skill that will allow him to converse with the Goddess, I'm really interested in her being fleshed out and being more of an active presence for both him personally and for the rest of the Gang. Not a demand, just a hope.
One last thing, I wanted to ask @OneSevenDesign if you've ever thought about a system to reward great roleplay during sway rolls or the like? I've noticed that often Geoff speaks in character straight away to a situation because he seemingly really lives and breathes his characters, then he has to roll and sometimes it's sorta retconned because the roll was too low or something, I know that Geoff personally often revels in the randomness, but still, out of combat, it would be interesting if at your discretion you could award someone say a +1 dice on their sway roll or something for engrossing roleplay in the moment.
Once again I end up wanting/needing to put thoughts to paper in the form of a wall of text, so my apologies for that. Looking forward to next episode and what it brings.
