    Hi,

    I tend to get a diplo -4 from Os-Gabella with the reason of lacking grace. Does anyone know what the reason for that is and how it might be changed?

    Thanks a lot

    Yep, she's Lilith with (most of) the serial numbers filed off...

    She loses the modifier when taken out of the game with overwhelming force ;)

    Er, I think with men you get "You are only a man." I thought that "You lack grace" was what she thought of other women.

    You're half-right, it used to be "You are only a man." back in Light/Fire, but it's been changed since the jump to BTS.

    I thought it was obvious what that meant, although I do understand that players unfamiliar with English might not get it.

    But the strange thing is she still receives +2 from Falamar. What gives?

    well, I admit I am not a native speaker...nevertheless, 'you are only a man' is rather obvious but without knowing this context - does 'you lack grace' really obviously mean that? I eventually read her backround story (...) and to me it seems that she most of all hates the gods...

    Hehe. It's my job to be excessively familiar with English (as an English teacher) and it wasn't obvious to me either. Not saying it should be changed, but I just don't get why it seems obvious to some.

    The more important question about Os-Gabella: Is there a Gabella/Fallamar p0rn event? Inquiring minds want to know... :)

    I don't see one in the xml text file. (Of course, none of them are p0rn, they are pron)

    Falamar is just that sexy. Or maybe he just amuses her, like a monkey. There's still a net penalty, so it's really more of an "I'll kill him last" deal.
