Title: Katana and Tanaka
Post by: Rompcat on October 31, 2006, 11:40:11 am
Okay, so I killed Tanaka.  I was told by the Melnorme that his sibling Katana was around, but Delta Gorno's a ghost town.  Where is/How long do I have to wait for Katana?  Or will he find me?

Any help would be greatly appriciated!

I believe you can find Katana once you've gotten the Shofixti maidens back.  As the Melnorme should have told you, A certain Vex admiral is the one you need to see about them.

Incidentally, when you do get them back for Tanaka, and he goes about doing his, ahem, duty...notice that he never mentions his brother.  What, he can't send a few nubiles his way?  "Oh, hey Katana...'huff' 'wheeze'...oh nothing, just..'hunngg' 'aggh'...chillin at Delta Gorno, like 'eeeeeiiiiiiyyyyyyyyyyy!!', always.  No, no I'm NOT making mad Shofixti love to several dozen females who we thought were extinct.  You know I'd never bogart them on you, bro.  Sorry...gotta tofu in the oven and she's getting, um, IT'S getting hot.  Later."

What a prick.

Does Tanaka even know that Katana is alive?

Yeah, Tanaka not *sharing* the *wealth* did seem a little unbrotherly... but then, Death999 raises a good point. Discuss.

Tanaka has no idea his brother is alive. He believes that he is the sole survivor. When you bring him the maidens, he takes off and leaves Delta Gorno for some unknown love-shack. The dashing captain, having single-handedly saved a race, returns to his own pressing business. So when Katana arrives, Delta Gorno is a once again a deserted barren dead system. He wont find out about his brother and all those maidens until Shofixti return in full force to reclaim their old star systems. If he survives that long, one assumes that he'll be thrilled that he isn't the last of his kind, rather than disappointed that he missed out on a love fest.

So there is no malice intended, only unlucky circumstances. If there is any blame to assign, it lays solely with the Melnorme, who know Katana is alive, but can't be arsed to let Tanaka know this.

Edited to comment that FireFox 2's spellcheck must be the best thing since sliced bread.

It's not in the Melnorm nature to give away information. Besides, they probably don't want to get drawn into a fight with the scout ship.

Maybe as a war survivor he'll get a share of th wealth in th long run....
