I can see how she might bumble in such a way as to further the goals of the Mythic Dawn ("the heir's hiding in this cupboard, sir, why did you want to know?"), but unless she's speaking in Mehrunes Dagon's ears I doubt one could make her responsible for the oblivion crisis.

The comic is a prequel, but the prequel to Katia's story, not The Champion of Cyrodiil.

I dunno, seems to me like like Katia's story began on that pier in Anvil. :whoops:

It really feels like this is setting up the events that lead to the beginning of the game. Katia's just the unlucky type to accidentally/drunkenly annoy the wrong person and be tossed in jail, and there was the nightmare, too. "You are the one from my dreams." Uriel dreams of her, and she dreams of Uriel, massively prominent Amulet of Kings and all. Would she even know that it was significant? Baurus says everyone thinks it's the crown that is important, but in fact "that's just jewelry". She got the garbage fireball spell every PC starts with, she's gonna get the crappy heal spell too, then she's gonna meet Captain Picard and accept to close shut the jaws of Oblivion as a final test of the new person she'll have become. It's almost too fitting.

I didn't expect to see any of the events of Oblivion going down from her point of view. But well, she does seem to be hinting pretty heavily towards bad times at Kvatch.

Well, we're probably gonna find out before long!

You wouldn’t have even considered it such if not for her argonian friend’s tearful insistince that Katia was “not always like this”.
Super disappointed in that line. From what QW knew at that point, Katia was constantly like that.

Re: Hero Theory:



Quote
Some legends do speak of heroes whose fates were unwritten. Their destinies were said to be ambiguous even to the gods, who could only respond to the heroes’ actions – or attempt to guide them with no guarantee of success. Often, these mortals would grow unimaginably powerful, and their choices would affect the lives of millions. It was said to be a blessing and a curse: to hold your own fate, but to be the unknowable black wall that clouded the future from the divines…

I think François is right on this one. She eventually becomes the hero in shutting the Oblivion gates.

Ps. If anyone wants it, this was in the comments:

…But I’m guessing you don’t have to worry about anything like that!

The "heroes" have been brought up since arena. They're a well told legend and just because they're mentioned during a question about fate doesn't mean it's directly related to Katia.

Man, something to vote on and votes are only allowed to be made through the forums. That requires dealing with the MSPA forums.

McFrugal if you still actually post here rep that ring.

Assuming Dmitri does not have psychic knowledge of Katia's abilities outside of the bedroom, the wand is the most sensible choice.  He has no sentimental affection to it and an sexa/alcoholic beginner mage would likely find it useful for all the reasons he did.  Hell, it would have been useful to shut up Gharug and his scroll shenanigans.

On the other hand, Amulet of Reflection is always useful if you ever encounter Asura.

Do you understand how terrifying the words “vibrating strap on” are for an asexual? That’s like saying “the holocaust” to a Jew.
