Behind the scenes

  • Originally, the player would have to select between assaulting either Mariposa or the Cathedral. The latter was scrapped, although dialogue files and the appropriate characters exist to make this possible. The script simply dummied out the option to ask for Paladin support at the Cathedral. If that was available, then two Paladins would assist the player in fighting through to the Master.
