After playing DF for maaaany years i can still say i enjoy each and each release weekly and many times i often just play old quests for fun.
However i only recently were wondering where is Doctor When? Yes, yes i know he's more or less a joke character but let's entertain the idea for a moment he's more than that. We beat him both in main story and arena challenge (lol) and we screwed up quit a lot of things later on, so he's got plenty of reason to hate us.
Here's the thing could the reason for him not to attack us (other than fearing us) is because we are more or less in truce with him? What if we are more usefull for him alive? What if we are helping him secretly saving the multiverse? I can easily see When erasing our memory helping him when we are exiting from his telephon box for example.
These days i'm more and more wondering if there are other universes which are suffering from a corrupter version of "hero", we already meet one Doom version after all.
Could When using us as a multiverse hero saving other universes from other versions of us aiding/using enemies like Shadowscythe, Akriloth, corrupter spirits or just killing the royal family and attacking the Magesterium devastating lore in the process? Honestly the scenario where our corrupted "hero" could ruing lore/Falconreach are endless...
Multiverse were never really discussed or acknowledged in DF after all until the Inn at the edge of the time i think and even than heroes forget it as soon as they leave it.
What do you guys thing could it be possible? And if yes what way could you think in which our "hero" could ruin lore either on a purpose or undirectly?
I like to think this is why we don't heared from When since book 1, it's cool to see our hero as a dimensional hoping multiverse hero and not to think we didn't heared about him just because he was forgotten and a one time used joke character.
