The Noob 38


The NPCs--some of them, anyway--are beginning to evolve past their programming.  That's not necessarily a good thing.  Amara was programmed to violently raid villages and capture people to sell off as slaves; while she may eventually be able to move away from that kind of lifestyle, her immediate impulse is still to choose a violent solution to the problem in front of her.  Amara is a dangerous woman; unpredictability certainly doesn't make her any less dangerous.

Evan struggles with the violence of Arlayne.  I think most people would.  I see Evan, though, as particularly sensitive.  He may never have been able to express that sensitivity before, but his stoicism is breaking down.

Maybe he's becoming a real person, too.

  1. Amara killed 20 of her friends single handedly? How can one woman kill 20 people? Even if she was extremly good, she couldnt win 1 vs. 20.
    Who would do that to save a random girl? Amara could have just released Evan at night or something instead of killing whole camp.
    Sorry Swap Girl. I didn't like this part. It if way too much unbelieveable and it doesn't make much sense.

  2. I agree,Amara should have poisoned them or something. I do like the escape, the declaration of love, and the decision to try to rescue Paul.
