A very interesting and insightful quest, with a notable (and welcome) departure from x is a bad guy doing bad things, we need to stop him.
Also, quite a nice change from the usual fight 8 monsters, get cutscene, fight boss monster.
It's rather bemusing to actually have permission, encouragement even, to investigate for once. Usually the Chosen One has to sneak around and fight off guards. Hell, Ilias seems such a ridiculously nice guy that I actually feel a little guilty over being sarcastic and questioning his beliefs. Well that, and suspicious - because, come on, they're going out of their way to be accomodating and open. Are they really that desperate or is there a plan of some kind in the works?
Bonus kudos for the fact that it's not a men vs women, or rioters vs law enforcement as it originally seemed - emancipators were the first to acknowledge the possibility that Kandra may be a tyrant, while the foreman rebuked his miners for even talking about a rebellion.
Btw, does loosing a save have any consequences except for redoing it?
