Guest Lezz Posted October 1, 2005 Share Posted October 1, 2005 Okay, I know for sure I'm going to get two responces. "Eeew", and "Impossible, he's married." This idea just popped into my head, and I think it would make a really interesting side plot. First of all, yeah, he's married, but life gets lonely on the open road. If he had an affair, it could end in a climactic clash between Maria and the female PC. I'm hesitant as to whether Keldorn would commit such an act; he is a pious man after all. Perhaps, in a single lapse of judgement, he would commit such a sin once, and then go home to his wife to confess; then would come the interesting conflict between Keldorn, his family, and the PC. I like romance mods, but I often find them a bit cookie-cutter, you know? A series of chats in which they get to know each other's pasts, and then they sleep together. The end. This way could have a built in quest - the confrontation. Yeah, helping a man cheat on his wife sounds evil, but there's lots of things the game lets you do that are evil. Alternately, if it sounds too out-of-character, perhaps the "romance" could be nothing more than a close friendship that develops between the two, and his wife gets suspicious and tries to stop keldorn from staying with the group. Then we get the fun of the character development, the big climax at the end, just no sex. Yeah, I know the age difference seems like a big problem, but I've heard of the same or even bigger age gaps in the real world. Also, if you play with the numbers a little, it doesnt seem that bad. I'm thinking Keldorn is maybe mid-fifties, maybe less than that if the stress of the road just made him age badly. The PC starts out around 21 in BG1, it takes a year or two before she confronts Sarevok, and then the game never specifies exactly how long it is between the end of BG1 and the beginning of BG2. It could be five or six years. With a little stretch of the imagination, the PC could be twenty-seven - almost thirty. The age difference wouldnt be so bad then. What do you think? Plausable? Terrible? Possible? Link to comment
