As a major fan of dark themes, this was fantastic to watch. That, combined with all the cool new NPC outfits we got to see...*shudders*
I loved it. The music, the animation, the theory material. Wonderful, all the way. You've gained a me as a fan, Aeon.
You know, I find the specific phrasing of Aeon's post a bit curious. It doesn't say that Xan and Lysander aren't related, or even that they aren't the same person. Just that the hair color is different.
Not that I think that's what we're going for, but y'know :P
I was thinking the exact same thing...while I won't go so far as to say that
spoiler: yet, I will say that I believe there to be some sort of link between the two of them.
Lysander is Xan
I knew the name Lysander was familiar...
I'm glad somebody else took the time to find this. I contemplated the relationship too, but I'm always skeptical to try to find direct references to real world history and/or lore. It all depends on who wrote the quest.
Once again, bravo DF team, I'm very intrigued to see where this is going. I have a feeling this plotline will add another layer of complexity and moral greyness to book 3, something I've been a huge fan of from the beginning. ;)
