08.11.2012 @ 14:41The Witcher (VG) is a RPG where you play as The Witcher Geralt using material founded and adapted for the gaming audience. The books are a collection of relationships told as a story from a persons' experience.
The Author, Andrej Sapkowski, wrote the rulebook and CDPR are writing campaigns for us to play and relish. I love a good book and I enjoy a good game, yet in the end I'm still sitting in the etherial here.
The business side of things is a pain though, I hate the maligned marketing campaigns publishers come up with; Harry Potter is translated into about 26 languages so why can't the original books of The Witcher be?

I think the whole scenario was a finely crafted ruse created by the purient Order in contrast to romantic tales and prophecies of nonhumans. An ethnic cleansing justified by greed and paranoia. Alvin was an agent of this through the Grand Masters' manipulation to incriminate the nonhumans as the perpetrators of humanities devolution by using him as a conduit of his power to sow the Elven Prophecy of Ithlinne. The humans would respond to the nonhumans' stories as a threat to their future, therefor justifying the purge of all things non-order. A similar trick to that which The Reverend tried in The Outskirts to expunge non-racists and magical threats.
The amulet I think is part of the emotional manipulation the Grand Master had hoped to spell Geralt with, as Geralt becomes the hero figure to Alvin, maybe Geralt would offer piety in the Grand Masters conjecture (instead of a Silver Sword.)
A brainwashed warchild makes more sense to me than The Loopers' plot-line ^.^
05.11.2012 @ 18:39I'd reckon the Alvin/Grandmaster identity crisis is more easily explained as a ruse to start the mob into hysteria about the Prophecy. The lost boy mentioned in Chapter V could be the original Alvin that the Grandmaster used to kickstart the political battle, all the information relaying back to the GM and used against Geralt as emotional collaterol, which Geralt dismisses as words once he's in dialogue with the KotWH. With the Grandmaster alluded to knowing Triss a bit better than the other Officials, maybe the Sisters are more conceited in the aftermath of the Nilfheim war and Triss an effective agent in a more ellaborate plot.
Personally I dismissed the whole temporal loop thing, there were too many political aspects for that scenario and I feel it'd be tantamount to the "t'was all just a dream" ending type.
Noting the former, it'd be a strange case of Babysitter blues for the GM to "know" Triss. In the end (at least the Neutral ending) Triss became the new advisor to Foltest, a very prestigious post, in unusual circumstances.
I haven't played TW2 o.O
