    Chill out Casey, as far as I saw, it was a joke. People seem to be taking this whole incest thing too seriously. I know it has been covered a lot. But it would not be dragged back up if some people didnt keep having a go at those who occasionnaly make a remark about it. People might start claiming you have a guilty conscience. Sheesh

    Yes, Casey, it was a joke. Just as a thread about incest in a computer game is pretty much a joke, especially when it's been covered a couple dozen times already.

    In future, when attempting to be humourous I shall begin and end posts with an announcement indicating as much. Thus

    ************JOKE************

    Why did the chicken cross the road?

    ************JOKE************

    is a joke.

    Apologies for the confusion.

    I wasn't having a flaming rant like it may have looked like, it was a simple comment, directed to everyone in general who seems to think of it as a deadly sin to play a mod that let's you romance a person that is very loosely related to you. So I'm sorry if you took my comment personal.

    BTA: do sheep hunt lions?
    :D :evil: :D :evil: :D
    ***WARNING - JOKE - LAME***
    Furthermore, let's take this to AoDA and let's see what happens when we start a thread called - sharing a single divine parent - a relation is incest or not?
    ***END OF LAME JOKE WARNING***
    <rant>And no, I don't think an Imoen relation is controversial as A)She's is a GodChild and thus something more (or less) than human, so human rules do not apply - B)She is only a half blood relative and - C)it's a game, not real, I neither screw my sister nor fight dragons in real life, even if I would do that in BG2
    </rant>
    Ah, I feel much better now - I like bananas, actually
    :borg:

    Oh PS, just thought I should add jokemarkers here too

    Actually, she's not even a half blood relative. You have different mothers, and given the fact that Bhaal can obviously produce offspring of any race he so chooses, there's no common DNA at all.

    Yes, well, on top of BTA's comment I'll add that the original topic is Morsmordre's request for info on whether Imoen's romance will conflict with other NPC romances.

    If you romance Imoen, is there an option for the two of you to take Slayer form and do the dirty that way? If you can't do that, I'm going to stick with my "Nalia's Dirty Sanchez" mod.

    Aldeth - like humans and elves are genetically compatible - and orcs and humans - deities might be compatible with most humanoid species - but do you think that if a human male fathered children from an orcish and an elven mother, and those children have a relationship this would still be incest (IMO anyways)

    The hinge would be whether Bhaal's humanoid avatar during The Time of Troubles passed on a genetic heritage to his children in the same mannner as an average mortal humanoid father would. Which of course, must logically be the case. Otherwise the children would simply be a carbon copy of the mother.

    Whether it's precisely genetic or not, though, Bhaal obviously invests some part of him in each his children.
