Why are we so naive?

The Adventurer seems to have a thirst for absorbing experiences that is almost obsessive. But with it comes the ability to reach so far beyond the average Joe, who'd need a change of spaceship to catch up. They've built on that from nothing, I'd say this effects how they see the world.

Instead of picking the side with all the power and making it easy on themselves, they champion the underdog, always looking for new ways to over come things while trying to make the world over in their image. Where what they see as objectively good over comes the obstacles placed in their path.

I wouldn't say they love a challenge, but they do charge at them and batter away at them until it crumbles to dust long after others "surrendered to the inevitable". And when battering doesn't work they will whip a doohickey or encourage others to do so.

It is that I think that gives them their blind spot when it comes to dealing with people, they really don't seem to be very good at that at all. Don't get me wrong. they have their social tools and keep expanding them to help overcome this blindness. Still that tool development has let them lead armies now, even if their skill with dealing with dishonest characters suck, very few of those dishonest few try anything major more than once, as the Adventuerer is also fairly ruthless in dealing with such people. I'd say they give them a chance, but also have no qualms about destroying everything in their path to achieve a desired goal. But have you noticed how in such situations there is always others about to absorb some of the flack later?

This shortcoming maybe a fairly large flaw but it's also their strength. Though you have to ask, just how honest are they being with both the player controlling them and the people they talk to?

Are they really that naïve, and power hungry (Wanting the SoJ when saying help no one), or are they more like Sliske than we ever thought...could they have been playing everyone with their words?
The purpose of adventure is to shine light into dark places,
Poke monsters with a sharp stick, Then steal anything that isn't nailed down!

It's hard for an enemy to fight to a final conclusion if your motives and drive are hidden from everyone including yourself. All they are left with is a deadly minefield of guesswork.


I wonder if the "Adventurer" will every write a more personal journal so we can find out. Though that Zaros made book that writes peoples thoughts down to be read would be a great place to answer that.
