    I'm sorry for my insistence on asking... but now he's playing the orc books.

    1) Does killing the leader of the bandits in Chapter 1 alter the story?
    2) Doesn't helping the shamans in Chapter 2 alter the story?
    3) What difference does it make to kill the imperials or kill the Moghrar?
    4) Is it intentional that failing the optional mission by attacking the Karshin is almost impossible?
    5) Does killing the orc champion and buying the GoldenAxe clan alter the story?
    6) Doesn't it have a psychological influence on Sas to listen to Vanessa and enslave the Knight Take?
    7) Does stealing resources from the dead, not humans, have only a slight impact on history?
    8) Because you made everyone think that Sas is a coward if all his mistakes were the fault of an unforeseen event and not his lack of leadership?
    8.2) It would have been great if the leader of the domain could be indirectly elected, for example that if Rath had survived, Sas forgives Logan and proves his worth in some optional missions, he became leader, the same with Vanessa and even with the sorcerer Old man
    8.3) I'm sorry to say, but Amari is an opportunist, she uses her own influence to say that Sas is the worst... Even the leader of the centaurs who knew everyone as liberators (even Sas), Amari tells him that his brother is the coward lychee and stupid, the centaur leader believes him as the one who freed his race... despite not knowing if those words are true
    9) Will keeping Logan alive alter the story?
    10) What is the canonical option? Vanessa RedFist, Vanessa del Dominio or Vanessa dead?

    Aedale is not really there anymore. It would require a miracle for her to even regain any form
    of consciousness, like an EXTREME traumatic moment which is possible but extremely unlikely.

    Thanks for the reply, but honestly i hope to see her in the future...

    One more question, will you take your project to W3:Reforged?

    No.

    Only grants an additional base for that mission.

    Killing the imperials : The humans hate you a lot more.
    Killing the Moghtar: One of the Moghtar bases in chapter 9, Second Orc Book has a different hero.

    Most likely.

    Killing the orc champion ( I presume you mean Kakuzu?) doesn't alter anything.
    Buying the Goldaxe clan doesn't alter the story. Just makes that mission easier by making them your ally.

    Sasrogarn remains the same regardless of your choice.

    The choice in itself isn't very important, yes, but combined with other choices, it is story altering.

    From what we know so far, keeping him alive only slightly alters a line of dialogue in the second orc book epilogue.

    Vanessa remaining a loyal member of the Tribal Dominion.

    I do not intend to buy Reforged at this point and that is unlikely to change.

    From what I remember, it was pretty much like the Goldaxe clan. Killing him only makes the red base your ally for the mission.

    After ending the SOB i´ve thinking about Zairmak and i´ve got a theory: (Not sure how to put it on spoiler)
    Zairmak maybe is a dreadlord of an unknown legion or maybe from Mindslayer Legion. Why? Because of the Scepter he have, it says that he dont want to talk about it and never answers questions about it, also give he unholy aura, skill "linked" to undead or demons.
    On the other hand you have his set of skills: Sleep and Fire Burn is pretty much skills from Vanilla Dreadlord, also finger of death was used by the leader of the demons Archimonde. And mana syphon is something that a demon or even an undead of arkain could do.

    His story tell us that he is the oldest orc, maybe he was on the first raids of arkain, also he lived on a small island but we dont know how much time, maybe years or even decades. So, maybe on that time on the island he was killed and a dreadlord took his place, so he could go back to his clan, get the chieftain title and manipulated orcs from within.

    The only thing i dont get is he fights demons, but we also know that some legions hate each other and maybe using the orcs as a weapon, he wants to destroy the souleater Legion.

    In the mission "Siege of Kome" in the First Orc Book, what is the canonical decision about Vanessa? Yes or No?

    I'm only going to say that "The Blackthorn" are the closest thing we will ever get to "an alliance/union of all races".

    refered -> referred
    It i unknown -> it is unknown

    Would you say that the Blackthorn, a massive mercenary organisation, is more like that
    than the Tribal Dominion itself?

    Considering how every race is allowed to join ( except the undead and demons, for obvious reasons) and there is no racism among them, I would say yes.
    Though, it's only by a slight margin, since they care about the profit above all.

    I wouldn't call them the closest faction that does not poses racial tensions, they are mercenaries they dont care with whome they fight along as long as they get that sweet dosh,Tribal dominion is more deserving of that title, they put asside their differences so they could survive and thrive, Blackthorn seems more like an "option" for the human warriors to still make a living while still living within their own lands

    Yet they still are incredibly progressive for a mercenary group. A mercenary group before the second Voidwar would've never allowed any race to join it. But, anyway, me saying they were more tolerant than the dominion wasn't the main point of my post. My main point was that they accomplish the idea of "an alliance/union of all races" way better than the Dominion since they can potentially have members from every non-Dominion race. (Except the Undead and Demons)

    The use of spoiler tags is legit.

    @Championfighter25:
    Thing is, the Blackthorn are doing what they do for money. The Dominion is also tolerant,
    mind you that they accepted the Humans in their ranks and are inviting additional races to
    their cause.

    @Championfighter25 Shar summed it up for me.

    What i was trying to imply was that Blackthorn's main driving factor is money whiles Dominions is their very own survival.So dominon would be more willing to accept any potential ally.
    While blackthorn would take into account how useful this new race would be.
