Stuff happens, so you need to level up to stop said stuff from happening even more.
Ideally, you have nice conversations with your companions during the whole thing.

That sounds like a good thing though, how is that phobic at all?

Also colonial fantasy sounds awesome though ots a reversal of irl history

I was just throwing out the first idea that was even remotely applicable.

Turns out the fuss is over a dirty limerick on a tombstone.

I'd have to see the limerick but it sounds considerably overblown

I got past the caravan bit at the start where the robed-guy cast some spell and both of my companions appear to be dead! This sucks. I hope they're back later on.

Skipping right to the punchline: Guy was tricked into sleeping with a man he thought was a woman, then killed himself.

Which oddly enough, can range from being a crossdresser or an androgynous dude.

Considering all we have for the reveal is a single verse, there really isn't much to go on.

The limerick, or the backlash and call for censorship?

Because I'd tend to consider the former more childish than anything (but then, it's a dirty limerick).

Considering the joke is at the expense of the guy who killed himself, and not the other man (who very well may not be trans, as Noit pointed out), I'm not seeing any basis to get up in arms. Unless the message of "don't trick people into having sex because that's rape" is offensive to trans people.

Also, and this is important, it's a non-existent dead person in a make-believe world that isn't even real.

Not the limerick. It migh be upsetting to some, but where's the proportionality?

Besides, like you said, he killed himself and not the other guy.

I'm liking the dialogue trees of this game, they remind me of the old Fallout menus. Want to get to a city already so I can just go talk to people instead of fighting creeps out here in the wilderness.

This is why I can't grasp this "outrage", like, what?
