We’ve killed our father. In our slightly-related quest to united rebel factions, we’re tripping over fresh graves, investing in a murderer and executioner, dismissing a bloodsucking vampire lord as a rumor, hearing the word NECLORD, finally recruiting Marco, stacking blacksmiths, faking out a lore flashback, testing exactly one gender norm, losing a fight to a vampire, failing to express warrior-sanctioned masculinity, requiring yet another magic weapon, finding Zen and Morgan at a temple, and insulting a talking sword. We are destined to gather together under Master Tir’s sign.
