    That soundtrack is probably not formatted for listening to outside the game. Not saying it's BADLY formatted but judging from my experience with in-game soundtracks there's a world of difference between the stuff you get in-game and the version made for listening outside the game :) Then again I haven't even looked at the game's music myself :)

    You can play it in a windows XP SP3 VM.

    That's what I'm doing.

    Sure, why not? I already sent bunch of art to GoG, not sure where it ended up (maybe the store?). Anyway, will ask them.

    Can either of you reveal where did you get these portraits from? Are they artist's imaginations (or modified portraits of some people you found on a net, e.g. Strabos looks like John Goodman), did you hire some chicks, are these your acquaintances or is there a chick database where you can pay for a portrait that I don't know of?

    Artist imagination with some references. For example, Strabos is a guy I used to work for, who looked like Goodman. A fucking bear of a man with quite a temper and low tolerance of failure. I'm 6'4 but he dwarfed me. Had hands like mittens. He was a VP of Operations; worked his way up through strength of character and decisiveness. Once he set his sights on something there was no stopping him.

    Claudia is inspired by a crazy zealot I've once met. She had these grey, steel eyes and there was fucking murder there. Her belief that the world was unjust and had to be changed, violently if necessary, was all that mattered to her. She would die for her beliefs (or kill others). A genuinely scary (but good looking) person.

    I've met a lot of characters over the last two decades (yes, including Miltiades), so it was easy to conjure them when I needed a particular type.

    An Irish gentleman who could sell you a trashcan full of garbage and make you feel like you struck quite a bargain. He had crazy eyes, especially when drunk, and he firmly rejected the concept of personal responsibility or regret for any wrongdoings, which were quite numerous (especially when drunk). He always had this awesome scheme going and he had 2-3 more ready to go when the current "it can't go wrong" scheme would go wrong.

    I told you to make that into a thread in the appropriate forum. It's amusing.

    Vault Dweller, could it be there's a choice without a consequence in the game?

    Show Spoiler
    Playing the assassin questline. In Maadoran, in the quest where you have to get the treasure from the thieves, I gave my word to the thief boss that I'd help him out when he needs me. Shortly before the last quest, I get summoned by him and he tells me to assassinate Maadoran's ruler, the one my guild is serving. He said he'll make sure I get fucked if I refuse. Well, I told my boss about that plan and broke my word, inciting the wrath of the thief boss.

    Nothing happened, though. I just went on to Ganezzar and haven't heard anything from the thieves since then. So, apparently he doesn't try to fuck me up for fucking him over at all?

    Oh, boy, this thread delivers. Ancient ones posting after 10 years, rape threats because of spoilers, people posting drunk and VD revealing that there is a real Miltiades out there, doing damage to the world! 10/10, would read again.

    I will think about it.

    Is there any chance of adding a proper ending involving Miltiades? It seems like the logical consequence of his ambition with the player's help. Miltiades as an emperor… think about it. It would be even better than the ascension ending and I bet that everyone would love this.

    Half of the time I wanted to kill the bastard, the other half I wanted to see what he'd do next and whether the universe would remain indifferent (it did).

    I wanted to but couldn't make it work. Maybe I'll try again in a month or so.

    Yes. Mazin first contacted me in 2007 and started working on the portraits in 2009, if memory serves me right. Eugene started working on DS first, then migrated to us when DS was released.

    Mercato to get him to owe the guild money i loose even though I have 9 in intelligence. Does this quest really need 10 in intelligence? or is it just to make some fast buck? Is streetwise/dexterity the only way to get it to work? I can complete the quest via Cado

    You can complete it after failing dex+streetwise if you have a bit of charisma, if you have high trading and persuasion. 10 int opens up some threatening options plus a fuckload of money.
