As my faithful readers know, I have just been reunited with my bro Glaivas.
And when I say reunited, I mean that, surrounded by enemies, I see him emaciated and helpless in a cell.
Notwithstanding the fact that we are far underground, surrounded by enemies, I assume that we share a manly hug before any other decisions are made. Although given what follows, maybe not.
I can help Glaivas out of the cell before my guide changes her mind, demand that the ‘Keeper’ help me, or smash my Sceptre IN HER FACE.
Its hard, but I might resist the face-smashing for the moment. Again, that kind of stuff may yield some short-term satisfaction, but it will simply precipitate a battle-royale against a whole heap of enemies. I decide to bide my time and simply assist Glaivas, while I monitor my surrounds.
Of course, like an idiot, Avenger rushes INTO the cell, which promptly re-seals itself, locking me in.
I’m trapped, and my attempt to finish books 4-7 with one incarnation of Avenger is doomed.
Re-checking the exact description of my choice, it states that I can “help Glaivas out of the cell”. I should have realised that this description meant that Avenger would, like a sucker, enter the cell, but it was vague enough to fox me.
Avenger will return!!
