personality in dialogue
« on: August 12, 2010, 09:21:23 PM »

I hope there's more places where your personality can go up or down depending on what you say/do.

I think the only place so far is
Spoiler
after scaring off Al'al, if you don't ask Arman for anything, you get +2 personality

Can it also be that the game tells you when your personality goes up or down?

I think killing Wadi is the perfect place to lose personality.

Couldn't you raise it in the Arman quest or am I mistaken?

I'm pretty sure mezzoforte already made that point.

Yea, but I'm just asking that there be more instances like that.  It'd also be nice to know when it happens.  Even knowing that you failed to increase it would be cool.  I guess this aspect of the game is kind of complicated:

For instance, how high does personality need to be?  It's the one trait where you can't see the immediate difference when you upgrade it.

In Telepath 2, personality was pretty simple.  Apart from adding slots for the team, I think the only place you needed it was to be able to buy bonds.  There weren't any missions where it mattered.
