Same. I wish he’d pop out for more “Really Doe”-style flexes occasionally, though.

I’ve traditionally been with you on this one, but the book makes a really compelling counterargument. They blame Rubin for a lot (including the original title) but also own up to being dumb, drunk teenagers who sorta got lost in a persona.

There’s really little of that errand-running and cattle herding stuff here, unless you go deep into the side quests. (I hate that stuff, too.) The story’s slow, but what you’re doing is never boring, especially if you stick to the main quest.

Well, I guess that’s that? No real new information, really, but a lot of threads of narrative to be recontextualized and parsed for at least the next 24 hours. And at least we got the phrase “salacious and unverified” out in the wild. Get used to hearing that one!
