Heartwarming / Elona

  • In versions of the game prior to Elona+, Pael's sidequest could only end with her mother mutating irreversibly from the Ether Disease and you either giving her a Mercy Kill or selling her off to Moyer as a freak show, with an option to keep giving healing potions to Pael to give her some false hope and gain a bit of Karma. Elona+ added a third ending, where upon visiting her enough times her disease will actually be cured by your intervention. That this happens in the world of Elona, a game where killing and eating anything in your way is par for the course, says a lot.
