View Full Version : Sarevok as ToB NPC?
Fri, 30th Mar '01, 10:18pm
No, I'm not kidding. Go to Gamespot and read the article. Apparently, your eldritch brother whom you killed (x2) will join your party if you grant him a portion of your soul. 'Sounds like he's quite the fighter.

we were just discussing this in the chat, Taluntain in all his wisdom is thinking: april fools joke but I reckon the new portrait is him...well, ok he has glowing eyes and that's about it...so much for artistic license, just wait and see...
(I reserve the right to say "i told you so" if it is...and you may point and laugh if it isn't)

i still say it looks like Xan...

I saw that mention of Sarevok as well. He's supposed to be some NPC that can join your party and swears loyalty to you if you assist him to regain his soul or something.
Nevertheless... I would love to see his 'real' stats. I also would love to see what his 2-H sword is like in HIS HANDS. It's supposed to have specific powers when he weilds it.
In BG I he was hitting my character while half asleep, laying down and using his left hand on a roll of 4 or 5. And I had an awesome negative AC!!! Yeah, I would love to see his real stats.

Sarevok or Xan I'm happy with either
they both rock and thats all there is to it.

Me as an NPC?Nooooooooo......you gotta be kidding! :)Haha!
Sat, 31st Mar '01, 12:58pm
Damn. I thought it would be Gorion.

I can hardly belive it! It's great.(I'll buy ToB for sure now)
Tue, 3rd Apr '01, 1:03pm
Will Elminster join up too?
Tue, 3rd Apr '01, 4:45pm
I hope Elminster will not be joining, Sarevok is a far cooler idea. My chaotic evil Berserker will have no problem sacrificing a bit of his soul to have sarevok as his servent, if nothing else but to see him grovel. What I cannot understand is the idea of Xan or Gorian being the new NPC. Xan was farly hopless and Gorian was passed his best as a Mage when he died.

Hmm maybe they bring Noober in the game too as NPC :)
Tue, 3rd Apr '01, 9:51pm
In ToB, there should be a special room with respawning Noobers and Neebers you could test magic and wild magic on.
Fun for the whole family!

Really ? Oh jolly good! :D
Wed, 4th Apr '01, 6:08pm
hmm, or a new kit for bards, kit=noober :D
irritate your enemies to death :D

Priest kit- philosopher (Noober killer). Whenever Noober asks a stupid question a philosopher can reply with a lengthly and in-depth answer, which will ultimately drive Noober to suicide.
Noober: What's a cleric?
Philosopher: A cleric, my son, is a priest of the generally accepted religions on the realms, however a full answer requires knowledge of the complete theology of all pantheons, the geography of the planes and the nature of belief.....

I would love the thought of having elminster in ur party, he's meant to be very powerful. plus did n e 1 else notice him in this game. he just muddled his name up a bit, like koveras, very clever man. and who is Xan, i kinda 4got?
Thu, 5th Apr '01, 6:51pm
I was really hoping for a monk NPC.... :( :(
Thu, 5th Apr '01, 7:25pm
Xan was a wizard whom was kept in the Naskel Mines. If you kill his captor, he asks to join you. He has this really weird sword, a Moonblade, useable only by himself. Khalid got killed in the fight, so I took Xan with me and so I couldn't resurrect Khalid.
I always regretted that after I found out what a loser Xan was (In my oppinion, I can understand if someone likes him, his portrait was awsome).

Sarevok would be awesome. You couldn't even touch him in BG1 with magic and he was a fricken tank.
Fri, 6th Apr '01, 4:00pm
My guess is that they will introduce a new brother that you have to mentor / keep out of trouble.
He'll probably have a little better Slayer ability, and be given to wanton distruction.
That way the PC can play the roll of a mature Obi Wan, using the great knowledge he has aquired over the past games.
Fri, 6th Apr '01, 4:56pm
It's already been verified that it's Sarevok.
Fri, 6th Apr '01, 6:08pm
Wouldn't it be cool if you could manipulate the Infinity engine Script well enough to put in your own NPC with his/her own dialog and possibly romances?
Imagine Sir Belisaurus as an NPC, he'll be loved by the ladies but will probably get killed the same way as Anomen in most of my games.

Noober as an NPC? What a great idea! I think I'll go control-Q him and introduce him to Irenicus.
Jon: Must I be interrupted at every turn?
Noober: Are you an elf? Where are your pointy little elf ears?
Jon: Do you even KNOW to whom you speak?
Noober: I once saw an elf...
Jon: Enough! I have no time for this!
Noober: ... and he had pointy little ears.
Jon: Let this END!
Noober: Not like you.
Jon: (Prepares to cast disintegrate)
Noober: I'd like to be an elf. Can you turn me into an elf?
Jon: You will suffer! You will SUFFER!
Noober: I think elves are cool!
Jon: (changes his mind, casts improved sequencer and combines disintegrate with imprisonment and death spell)
Noober: Come to think of it, you don't look at all like an elf... argh! (Noober killed, disintegrated and imprisoned)

How about Noober vs. Firkraag?
Noober: (looks up in awe) Heya!
Firkraag: (ignores him)
Noober: Are you a dragon?
Firkraag: (pause) Am I a dragon?
Noober: Yeah, are you a dragon?
Firkraag: No, human, I am an orc. You entered the wrong cave.
Noober: You ARE a dragon! I recognize the smell of brimstone.
Firkraag: You are too quick, human.
Noober: I heard that dragons breathe fire! Can you breathe fire?
Firkraag: Yes, would you like to see it?
Noober: I'd love to!
Firkraag: As you wish (inhales deeply)
Noober: Argh! (burnt to ashes)

Oh Steppenwolf, that was definitely the funniest thing I've read here in quite some time. You're a riot. Keep it up!
Sat, 7th Apr '01, 5:53am
All right, one more scenario. Noober vs. Gaelen Bayle.
Gaelen: Coo! A gutter rat!
Noober: Are you a Shadow Thief? You look like a Shadow Thief.
Gaelen: Aye, mate, that be my profession and confession.
Noober: I'd like to be a Shadow Thief. Can you teach me the Shadow Thief ways?
Gaelen: Coo! Why don't I teach you right now?
Noober: You'd do that? For me?
Gaelen: I'll be doin' that as a quick as a blink! Now turn around and I'll be showin' you how to backstab.
Noober: This is great! (turns around, goofy smile of excitement)
Gaelen: (draws dagger and backstabs Noober)
Gaelen: That'll be 20,000 gold pieces, mate.
