That, I think is very sensible indeed and is sort of assumed- other explanations don't seem to be as valid.
How about an analogy with the mirror of erised (or how is it called?) in Lord of the Rings, which allows to see the present, the past and the possible futures.

If a set person was able to see everybody possible future wouln't their head explode from the amount of futures he could see. I tink whoever Malignus is a creature from the tenth dimension, meaning that exists along a timeline were all possible futures extist and can share his transport the hero to the tenth dimension so that the hero then can coose what point in timehe wants to go to.

I doubt it from the dialogue. He seems quite in control of himself. You know, like when you read a book, you can flick pages to and fro, except that the book has several endings. Better yet, if you ever made a side-mission and created a dialogue tree for it, it's excactly the same: you can inspect all the intricate complications and interactions of certain possibilities. You see them all, but concentrate only on few at a time, deciding to explore everything along a particular venue, etc.

That's the little bit of fun I was alluding to earlier on in the thread about enemies and their relation to the forum ranks. ;)

well, Malignus, the creator of the game is the god of the Telepath series, as much as the Cristian god is the (according to them) creator of all existence

Exactly. I'm sure Craig had his fun when developing this easter egg.

I'm sure Craig will be thrilled to find out! :P
You forgot the "I win" attack, that ends battle in his favour. ;)

Seems like Malignus is unnderstood well and thoroughly, apart from the interpretation of what happens to the Main in the Pit.

I would think that the 'I win' attack would be instead a one hit KO move to anyone hit and for range..

Back on topic, maybe Malignus could let you fight TRPG2 battles?

Again, as mentioned earlier, it would make sense for Malignus to let the player fight TSoG battles- Malignus controls time, can see it spinning back-and-forth, but he cannot place someone who at no point in normal time could've come across some enemies from another epoch- it has to be simply a point in past, present or future of the Hero in question, ie a TSoG battle.

maybe Malignus could find a way to take Duvalier and the team back to the battle between Darime (the last leader of the Resistance) and D'Kah
Like, he can take the Hero back because the Hero's destiny is intertwined with that of the other members of the fight, etc, etc

But Duvalier wasn't there: if he wasn't there during the battle, he cannot be there- malignus cannot change what happens in time, he only allows the Main in TRPG2 too experience encounters either from the past, present, or encounters from the most likely futures the Main has. Duvalier was not in the battle where Darim was slain, and he cannot do anything about it.
