Behind the Scenes at Siralim

A number of underappreciated story elements for your consideration.


Q: What happens to all the people I keep recruiting?

A: Where do you think all the graves you keep having to visit come from?

~*~

Q: How are they feeding all these monsters and people?

A: Well, the consumables are only one part of the monsters you’re defeating, judging from the Pandemonium Token event where it blows an enemy party into a handful of them. The rest of the body might as well go to some use.

I mean, they are called consumables.

Q: Why does everybody hate the gambling dwarves?

A: Considering how the king deals with political opponents and renegade mages, I imagine debt collection to be a very serious business indeed.

~*~

Q: Clearly, the castle was complete during the previous king’s reign, or there wouldn’t have been dead-end hallways. Why did all the NPCs close up shop and leave, and why did the former king only leave you enough cores and resources to start a single monster?

A: A very serious business, indeed.

Your hypothesis has merit.
