[003] TwinBird Current Version
Changed line(s) 3 from:
As to the change I did make, though, I don\'t understand why people say that about Mookie and Siggy. His FinalSpeech and other PetTheDog moments seemed to me pretty clearly to be intended to foster sympathy; the bit with the murdered orcs just seemed to me to be an attempt at moral ambiguity. Siggy was a fundamentally good person... with the minor flaw of hubris, and the unforgivable one of seeing orcs as vermin to be slain, and doing so. It\'s similar to the notorious rape storyline: he wanted to examine the concept of the MoralEventHorizon by having a character cross it while still having redeeming features, although in this case, you\'re not expected to forgive him, but only to hate to love him. It\'s clumsy, but I don\'t think it\'s an attack on Sigfried\'s fans.
