I noted that Braham seems to have calmed down through the course of this episode. While it's realistic for people to get over being mad, having it happen so subtly in this particular instance feels a little anticlimactic. All that build up and then "hey, well, glad you had my back, maybe we should talk." Enough so to make me wonder, is this part of the overall planning of the storyline or is it in response to the general negative response by the players to his angstfest?
Semi corollary, how much behind-the-scenes knowledge do you guys have for your guiding canon that never makes it into player view? (This is not a jab -- the nature of the beast is that you'll have a bigger framework than can be shown in a game of this nature. But it does mean that sometimes we feel we are getting the glossy highlights and have to assume and infer a tapestry of detail).
