Haven’t made it far enough to reach those two NPCs. Looking forward to meeting them.
Gong is well… Gong. I like him. Oddly, Lyranica does not like Gong. Don’t believe she is a big fan of that type of humor, but whatever. Her loss.
Loved the reference during a Gong conversation to an optional ending sequence in PQ1 where Drong eats Lord Bane. (Similar implicit reference to this as well when Gong eats the Warlord, perhaps?)
Early NPCs still have a lot of character development to go, and the game foreshadows this greatly.
Only just got there, but Xione has left a great opening impression on me.
How can one argue with this?
Side note: It is great fun to replay the dialogs with split conversation forks and see all the possible outcomes. Some of them are great.
