    Default How to keep you girlfriend in check…

    I finally figured this out. My GF was playing a Favored Soul. She reached level 12 and got Angel of Vengeance (which describes her quite well). She cast crown of retribution on me and my head started to glow.

    This is where it gets good!

    I can now tell when she’s lagging behind because my head stops glowing! It’s great!

    I’m running along and my head stops glowing:

    Hoglum: Where are you? Are you ok?

    GF: I’m looking for something in my inventory.

    Hoglum: Oh, what’s that?

    GF: Some spot goggles.

    Hoglum: Why? We’re just running around in the desert.

    GF: Shut up, I want to find my spot goggles.

    Now, I don’t know about the rest of you good people out there, but I find myself all alone sometimes and wind up having to go back to show her the way. Sometimes I also find myself in big fights ---by myself.

    Sooooooo, I’m running along. My head stops glowing…

    Hoglum: Where are you? Are you ok?

    GF: I found some new hair dye. I’m thinking it to put it on. Do you think pink will go with this armor?

    Hoglum: Hmmmm…

    See? This is awesome! No more getting lost (I turned around and got us lost anyhow trying to find Chains of Flame). Just convince her to play a FVS. It has the added benefit of getting you the occasional heal when she bothers to look at your hit points.

    Sounds more like She's put you on a Leash!

    You're the one getting checked not her!

    I disagree!
    In my case I (the girlfriend) have to lead him (the boyfriend) through almost all the content, 'cause I'm the one that remember every corner and everything else!

    Unfortunately he won't play a fvs again anytime soon

    True that!

    Hell the leash even has a nice shiny halo around it. Makes him a pretty little puppy for her eh!

    Yes, you're pretty much on to how this really works. I'm just happy I don't have to go back!

    I still got us lost - looking for the shortcut.

    I'm sorry that your hireling - I mean girlfriend - isn't keeping up with you. If only she were a 12 year old boy, she might understand the grand importance of video games and take them more seriously.

    On a real note, please unchain her and let her out of your basement. Whatever is going on there doesn't sound healthy.

    You still need to work on keeping her in check. She was supposed to pick up that ability and start casting it on you at level 6. :P

    It is funny though, my girlfriend is finally on her Favored Soul life and we just hit level 6 yesterday and she picked up that ability so I know exactly what you mean. When I played my FvS I had no idea how often the effect went on and off her (because I only noticed when she got so far away that I had to recast the effect because she was unnamed as my champion).

    Yep.

    Reads like her evil plan is coming to fruition!

    OP, just take what you can get.

    As a fvs, she doesn't need you anyway.
