Praise and endgame questions (spoilers)
« on: April 13, 2009, 11:15:56 AM »
Love the game! I haven't had this much fun with an adventure game since the Monkey Island series - and I have to complement you on fairly logical puzzles and a compelling story. The weakest link, really, was Cutter's "vision" that softened his resolve, but I loved the follow-up exchange with him and Petra.

Few questions:
* Was Niee Amiee (The frogman's assistant) the original assistant to an evil witch that the tinman fell in love with? If so, what drove things so sour (besides having most of his body cut off, that is)?

* Was Bill cleared of charges, since Petra could show that it occurred because of a fight between Ansel and Cutter?

* Will we ever find out what was going on in the warehouse the Lion apparently burned down?

* Was William/Cutter blocked from scrying and from Glinda's book by Osma due to her guilt over the treaty? And, if so, can she now scry on him to find out how he escaped? presumably, she knows that Petra freed him. Now that he's basically been reset to a boy, would she consider him free and clear?

*Whose cuff link was found at the site of the boat explosion? Did it belong to cutter, ansel, or someone else?

* Is Petra still an ambassador?

Thanks again for a great game!

Not Mr. Gilbert, but I'm willing to weigh in on this topic.

-I believe Nimee is indeed Nick's old love. She was unnamed in the books, Nick said "oh, is that the name she goes by now?" and wore gray to match his tin suit.

-Bill was never arrested on camera, so either he was cleared of the charges or got arrested without our knowledge. Petra also never collected the fee on Trot (if she charged anything at all).

-No. We may one day learn what shady dealings Lion is doing, but the warehouse is beyond our examination.

-I believe the reason no one could track down William was because he was effectively given a new name and a new identity, so changed that even his own sister didn't recognise him until he pulled out his hankerchief.

-Whoever brought the bomb to kill Ansel obviously lost the cufflink. We never learned who did it, so we won't learn who owned the cufflink.

-I believe it's a lifelong position, or at least one she won't lose unless she retires or dies.

Yep!  That's the one.  I didn't make it clear in the game, it seems, but she's mentioned by name in the original book series ("The Tin Woodman of Oz", specifically).  It's not an important detail for the game, but you're right.

Bill was definitely cleared of all charges by the end of the game.

Most likely not!

He was blocked from scrying because he was no longer William. He became Cutter as soon as he went to Phanfasm island.  As for Ozma's guilt, I'm pretty sure she feels that her actions are perfectly justified.  If she chooses not to re-arrest the child William, she'd probably find a way to justify that, too!

The cufflink was meant to be Anzel's, since it was expensive and flashy.  This was never really made clear.  Sorry!

Yep!  Done on purpose, it was.

You're very welcome!  ;D
