    <p>Swen Vincke posted <a href="http://www.larian.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&amp;Number=451848&amp;#Post451848" target="_blank">another meaty status update</a> on Dragon Commander on the Larian forums.&nbsp;A snippet:</p>
    <blockquote>
    <p><span>My desk is riddled with notes, flowcharts and designs for both DC &amp; project E, but since we&rsquo;re not talking about E yet, I&rsquo;ll give you a rundown on where we stand with DC. Here&rsquo;s a picture of the desk&nbsp;</span><br /><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.facebook.com/dragoncommander" target="_blank">Dragon Commander on facebook</a><span>&nbsp;</span><br /><br /><span>Internally we look at DC as a game being split in two phases &ndash; phase 1 is the strategy/rpg part, phase 2 is the action/rts part. Since we want to be able to make the claim that you&rsquo;ll make more decisions in DC than in any RPG we&rsquo;ve ever produced, we made sure that for every character you encounter in the game, there are complex decision trees, and that the impact of reaching a certain point in each decision tree has an impact on the overall gameplay.&nbsp;</span><br /><br /><span>Looking at elf princess Lohannah for instance, I count 7 RPG like decisions to be made (i.e. moral, ethical, political, romantic etc&hellip;) with associated different consequences. Each character has been worked out like this, and we&rsquo;ve made sure that whenever something felt like clich&eacute; or uninteresting, it was sent back to the drawing board. The ten characters on my desk alone yield more than 100 consequences, and I wished we had stuff like this in the previous Divinities.&nbsp;</span></p>
    </blockquote>
    <p><span>Well, if the previous Divinities lacked that stuff, at the very least it won't be difficult to top that.</span></p>

    The important question is, can we have an intercourse with our waifu while in dragon form?
    That is the deal breaker.

    The more important question is whether we can change into dragon form while having intercourse.

    That would entail taking a few precautions I suspect. Like wrapping the woman in duct tape so she didn't explode. :smug:

    If there's one thing RPGs need, it's more tasteful rape. :salute:
