[SPOILER] Kids of Endless Gate

Post by Firkraag »

So, I heard, that you can kill nobody in this game and here I am, beyond the game and there's bunch of unavoidable cultists (I tried stealth; it didn't work) and bunch of suspicious floating skins, I can do nothing else, other than kill. No perception lines, no rolls, no anything. No negotiation with cultists, either. Just disposable trash mobs, then?

Or not? What am I doing wrong?

So, how do I not kill anyone in this Crisis/location?

Talking with the skins and giving them a mercy kill opens an alternate path that bypasses the cultists, the cost being that if you fail to resolve things peaceably with Inifere upon meeting him he will be buffed up for the subsequent Crsis.

So, I can't not kill in this instance. Noted.

From what I could induce, the only way to avoid killing in the Endless Gate is to avoid the Endless Gate. I progressed to the end of the quest but I'm sure that you can walk away from the quest before you enter the gate.

You could rationalize killing the skins as killing people that are basically already dead, I suppose.

They're capable of communication... and I'm not sure, what they are and what their existence entails.

They're not exactly reliable witnesses, either. Heck, they aren't even agreeing among themselves. I can't kill just those, who ask to kill them - only all at once. And there's something, that *wants* me to kill them. This hunch is as close I can get to reliable information on this one.

It rings all kinds of alarming bells, along the lines of: don't talk to them, don't look at them, get the **** out of there.

Except I can't leave the Gate the after I entered and I can't stealth either.

And I had no idea, it'll make the last castoff into a murderer. I guess that's what you get for crossing the Eldritch Horrors...

You turn into a monster yourself.
