vivaxardas said:Yes, it is what I am hoping for. Geralt would never support a conquest itself, and his decisions will be based on his own (or his friends and family) benefits. But from a meta-gaming perspective it should be a way to come to an agreeable political end state, agreeable for a player, not Geralt. In TW2 there is an obvious path through the game outcome of which is beneficial for Nilfgaard, a path most beneficial for the North, and everything in between. I just want the same thing in TW3, that's all. ›››
Yeah, exactly. Such option should be in TW3. In TW2 we didnt really help the scoiattel or Temeria, we didnt even help roche. We just went on the same direction. I think there will be such grand moment in TW3 as well. I mean it was in TW1 and TW2, so it is completely expected to be in TW3.

Costin Moroianu said:So you're telling me that Nilfgaard was burning fields in the books while on the offensive and Geralt saw this?Well no, what they said was that the main story was about Geralt's personal story rather then big politics. However they did state that the main story for each of the regions: Skellige, No-Man's Land, Novigrad would be political in nature.So it's like main story: Geralt's personal stuff.Secondary story, or main story for individual regions: Political.I don't believe they would hire an actor like Charles Dance if Emhyr would not play a major role. Major role means major choices involving him as a character, which means political choices. ›››
Whichat I like you a lot as a friend and witcher lore master, but I have to side with Costin on this one. He makes a really good point.
He is also right on the Emyr part, if he was only going to be a side plot they would not have paid that much to get one of the most expensive and famous voices they ever had. and they would have not chosen Charles at that. Charles killed the enitre main cast of Game of Thorens and people still love him. this means that if they chose him as Ehmyr is because they want to create a likable side to that character, and charles would be the perfect voice. I think that there will definitely be a choice where you will side with him. Similar to how we sided with Roche, we didnt really sided with Temeria, we just sided with him. Same thing here, maybe we side with Emyr but not the Nilfgaard. See where im going with this?
dragonbird said:I honestly don't think that we'll have to make this decision in TW3, as it seems to go against what they said about it being personal rather than the big politics. I can see there being little incidents, sometimes involving the North, sometimes involving Nilfgaard, where we need to choose, but I think that Geralt would always pick based on the specifics of that particular decision, and not on some bigger ideological/political picture.
He fights monsters. If today a representative of the North acts like a monster, he'll fight the Northerner. If tomorrow a representative of Nilfgaard acts like a monster, he'll fight the Nilfgaardian. If either are suffering from an attack by some other kind of monster, he'll help them.
In TW1, he agreed to help Foltest against the Grand Master because he was planning to go after the GM anyway, so he thought he may as well get paid for it.
In TW2, on Roche path, he aided Henselt when Henselt was under a curse, despite not approving of the invasion or of Henselt's politics, because that's what Witchers do. And on Iorveth Path, he joined forces with Iorveth to fight off the invaders to help the dwarves, not out of any agreement with Iorveth's political views. I really don't see it being any different in TW3. ›››
Exactly. good point.
I think the the nilfgaard siding will somehow fit in geralts personality. I think he will make sense if he sides with them. From what I have seen, he killed monsters for them. So there is a big chance he is willing to do more. My guess is Wild hunt. and/or Emyr and geralt trying to find ciri together or something.

Wichat said:Foltest (despite all his crimes) is the only King I read worrying for his citizens and innocents. The Lodge is the only Institution I read they worry for Human and Non-Human Kind. Emhyr's doesn't care at all about that. So, no, to me, comparatively he is NOT better than the other kings. ›››
well, yeah. but i mean king material. I dont know man. I just kinda feel him to be awesome. and using Charles Dance as his voice actors just makes him even more appealing. I need to see how he is in the Witcher 3. But for now, I still think he is more king material than the others. I mean look at all the land he has. He won them fair and square. with little involvement of mages, and dirty tricks that the norths often use. just good old human brutality.

what's the point of upvoting your own posts guys? ›››
Everyone is being civil /> no need for locking my lovely moderator. ow how much I missed you /> but I have to report your for going off topic. sorry =/ just kidding /> you are my favorite mod />
abt the +1s yeah, me and Wichat have to do it occasionally when its a negative vote =/ i mean, if you hate nilfgaard you dont have to hate me and down vote. its not a healthy system in my opinion. a personal suggestion is to take it down. I mean not long ago that poor misguided guy that made a certain post got -27 negatives, some of which gave him a -1 only based on racism. his point was valid but badly repretesented. and he fled the forums. If you want to keep the system then only keep the +1 and remove the -1 like warframe forums, they have done the same and everyone loves them more and more everday. also when you do that remove the chance of +1 yourself. I mean you both use the same IPB, then the setting should be available.
