: I think...
: more evidince needed then just this.
: DG, post your points, this is just a guess.
Ok, aside from the Homecomeing mission there is.
A- the fact that he has been fighting for seventeen years, where as a solder from the Free Citys would probably not have been fighting that long. And anyone from the East would have been dead, or writen in a very different style.
B- He seems to be an officer (he knows alot about importent operations, such as the stratagy for the battle for Madrical, that ordinary solders probably wouldn't be informed of), or at least someone with an informal sort of authority. Now I understand that security might not be the biggest consern for a mideval style army, but who would wanttake the trouble to tell the grunts exactly what the plan was?
C- Why would him being an officer point to him coming from the Provence? Well think about it. "When the Armys of the Provence were broken at Covenent, they scattered throughout the North; taking their arms with them" and their combat exsperiance. A veteran who had faced rotting corps men and iron giants (yes I know they aren't iron) would make a better officer than some green land lord who joined up because of political reasons. He would also be more likely to survive for ten more years as well.
D (alittle more far out, but I include it anyway)- He doesn't seem all that concerned about getting home, almost like it was already destroyed. Nor does he get too worked up about the fall of Madrical (although it could have been shock) and the imminant destruction of what was left of civilization. Kind of hard to do that after you've already seen your own citys go up in smoke, and had to fight the reanimated bodys of your neibors and friends don't you guys think? (By the way, this is one of the reasons the ending of Myth was so powerful in my opinion. The writer died, despite every thing he had survived and suffered through and not even his Journal would make it back to tell his story....:Sniff:)
That's it for now. Maybe I'll reinstall ol' TFL and look for some more that I might have forgoten in the year or so since I've played.
See you guys around the curve!
