What Can Change The Nature Of A Man?

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from bradsan
The answer, probably nothing or everything. It's a question with no straight answer.

Every answer you would give would be the wrong one. Why? Because it's not the one she wants to hear and again there isn't one answer it depends on the circumstance and the kind of person. So everything or nothing.

great story it's fun to read and it makes you think.

It's sad you stopped writing.
Comments from author:

I think the canon answer was 'belief', or more accurately, "Whatever you believe can change the nature of a man, can". But yes, Ravel wasn't interested in any answer but that of the Nameless One, so in that sense it was a trick question.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)WildMartin
I don't recognize the character, but an excellent story!

To attempt to answer the question: A man's nature, simply put, is what it is. A man lives and grows and becomes a new person with every breath he takes but that doesn't change the nature at the core of his being. His nature might be restrained or curbed or channeled or even redirected to new purpose, but one's nature essentially remains unchanging. To seek an answer to such a question is foolishness.

Or course, I'd probably be eaten for my impertinence. :-)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from WhiteWolf
What can change the nature of a Man? There are too numerous things that can change a man. But I the Genius has found the ultimate answer. What have love, hate, remorse, death and even destiny in common? Emotions! That's the answer. A good second answer is Living. But you need Emotions to live. So Emotions is at the core of everything that can change a Man.

The Answer is EMOTIONS.

I think Ravel is being highly unfair. *pout*
Comments from author:
Ravel doesn't agree with your answer. Ravel eats you. Sorry.
Have as nice a day as you can have while being eaten.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from setebos
I liked the story, and it's always nice to see a planescape crossover

however ravel had children (unless this takes place a lot of time before the game) it's part of the main quest

yes the main quest requires you to find "Ravel's blood" her daughter (Kessai-Serris - you find her in the fallen's brothel) and her halff sister mentions that Ravel had other children before Serris

never mind, I'm nitpicking.

great story
Comments from author:
Ravel had children? I'm afraid I don't remember that part. (Unless you mean the various old women that TNO meets, like the midwife; but I assumed they were 'versions' of Ravel rather than her children).

Glad you enjoyed it!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from JoeDineen
Not having played Planescape: Torment this seemed a bit weak. It could do with a little more background info.
Comments from author:
Well, okay. Other than "Ravel is a scary, old, lonely, powerful demon/witch/goddess-type figure, who's trapped in a maze, and is pining for her long-lost lover", what background information would you need? My aim was to convey her character and situation through the description without laying a big infodump on my readers about who she is and how she got there. I'm sorry it didn't work for you.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Fregith
Yes, Ravel does indeed have at least one child. One of the women inside the Brothel for the Slaking of Intellectual Lusts, the grey-skinned girl with red eyes whose name I can't remember at the moment, is the daughter of Ravel and an unnamed cambion.

Moving on! Nice story, it captured Ravel quite well.
Comments from author:
Ah, right. I remember that now. Oh well.

I'll assume that Ravel's maternal feelings were awakened in this story (as we saw at the end), and so next time she captured a 'guest' she forced him to impregnate her, resulting in that child. Hey, it doesn't contradict anything. :-)
