I found it odd that they weren't referenced at all in this latest episode, especially with so much at stake (if they were, I missed it). Just seems like the final battle with Kralk is something they'd show up for? I can't strictly remember what they're up to post-PoF, so apologies if the answer should be obvious.
I don't know if any devs are around still, but I was curious if you can offer insight into the writing process. I know you tend to rotate the cast out every few episodes, but how exactly do you choose? Is it simply a matter of "we haven't seen x, y, and z for a while, so we'll bring them back in for a bit!"
Do you have any sort of "word allowance?" I have heard from other game writers that there's a maximum number of words they get for the whole game, and so all the dialogue they write for the world/story has to fall below that number. Do you have a similar system, or likewise a certain number "main characters" per episode?
In general, I loved the little touches in this episode (like a certain ghostly messenger). That sort of stuff brings me joy, though you MURDERED all that joy with that ending. May Grenth take pity on your souls, for I would not!
