Taisa and I seem to have a difference of opinion about the Sun Worm. I've already sent her a PM, but given the difficulty of finding one's own mailbox, I'm not sure if s/he's seen it yet, and I don't want to get into an edit war. How do such things get negotiated here?

How is the secret ending a Wall Banger? The fact that Naija goes up to her mother without thinking of the consequences? That's not being stupid, it's human nature. She hasn't seen her mother for literally as long as she can remember, and she has no reason to believe she'll go all crazy Take Over the World-Evil Matriarch on her.

I believe it's the shock twist of her turning out to just that damn evil to begin with as the shock to the players, as she was, after all The first person other than Naija we meet in game and the one that goads her to start her quest. The fact that she did this for evil intent was the surprising bit. I, personally, thought it to be a great Sequel Hook. I do agree that it's not really a Wall Banger. It's more of a shocking twist to put at the end of the game, alla' Diabolus Ex Machina. And, again, a Sequel Hook.

Oh, and also, can we get a picture for the page? It's been lacking one fore a while now.

I think the Wall Banger is more that the "mysterious dark cloaked and hooded figure with maniacal laugh actually turns out to be evil" ending is supposed to be a shocking twist, when it's kind of mind-numbingly obvious. Other parts of the ending are kind of surprising and cool, though.
